SBS airs short crime drama Case Number 113

We haven’t had too many mini-dramas airing lately, but SBS has a two-episoder on the books for this week, a legal thriller titled Case Number 113, which stars Kim Min-seo (Level 7 Civil Servant, The Moon That Embraces the Sun) and Ki Tae-young (To the Beautiful You, Creating Destiny). The production hasn’t released any stills of her, but we’ve got a few of Ki Tae-young sporting unruly hair and a five-o’-clock shadow, which as we know is dramaland shorthand for “grizzled cop.”

Case Number 113 tells the story of a dogged prosecutor (her) and detective (him) who form an “odd partnership” to investigate the case of a murder with no corpse. Okay, I’ll ask the obvious question: But how do you know it’s a murder without a corpse?

The drama is based on a crime novel of the same name, whose author also wrote the scripts for the show. Kim Min-so’s character is a skilled prosecutor who doesn’t have the best relationship with her mother. I suspect some of those conflicts will play out in our case, where suspicions point to a young woman and her mother (played by Kim Mi-sook), who showers her daughter in “excessive affection.” Hm, loving or overbearing?

At one point, SBS’s Wednesday-Thursday dramas got off-pattern with their airing schedule, starting with when That Winter, The Wind Blows aired two episodes on premiere night to get a leg up on its competition (IRIS 2 premiered that day as well). In retrospect that seems like a needless precaution, but I suppose they couldn’t know at the time how much the competition would suck. (Level 7 was also in that slot.) As a result of that promo move, however, That Winter was off-schedule for the rest of its run, and that led its successor, All About My Romance, to be off as well. This is a minor detail that has annoyed me way more than it should annoy anybody, but what can I say, I need things to be in order.

Thus All About My Romance airs its final episode this Wednesday, and then Case Number 2 will air both its episodes on Thursday. There is no drama programming the week after that, but our next Wednesday-Thursday schedule resumes on June 5 with the premiere of Can You Hear My Voice.

Wait no! Please tell me All about my romance did not end with episode 15. There's another episode coming right ????where they reconcile and are adorably cute together right! Please I don't understand!

Hmm this drama looks interesting and will allow Kim Min Seo to redeem herself after playing one of the dumbest most annoying spies ever seen on film (they may be harsh but not sure its not true!)
I like Ki Tae-Young so glad he has another project.

despite the mop of hair and the 5 o'clock shadow, Ki Tae-young still looks way too pretty to be a "grizzled cop". Excited to see Kim Min-seo in a starring role though. Hope it's good.

I second the hope that this is good, she was fantastic in her supporting roles that I've seen and I hope she makes it to lead status in full-length dramas too.

In my country there is a known 6 years old case of Elodia G. They don't have a body but the amount of blood found in her old is supposed to be huge. Her husband(a cop) renovated their home after her disappearance, after all those years they managed to find proves only now, yet the trial is still on-going. In 2007 he wasn't arrested because her body was missing, despite huge evidences like his cop uniform full of her blood.

Even more there was a television that made huge ratings only with a reality show with this case alone. Therefore if the scriptwriter and the PD of this drama will know how to make it interesting, lots of people will watch it.

I know what country you're talking about ;)
I've been out of the country for a while now, and even when I visited I didn't watch the news haha but I do remember this case. Is that still going on? Crazy bastard... One reason why I don't follow news from home tv stations is that their stories are worse than makjang. I barely watch any news from any country to be honest, I only rely on RSS feeds from a few newspapers.

I think mini drama has more realistic characters and casts. After watching Sirius, White Christmas, Conspiracy in Court and Ma Boy I wonder why regular drama (I refer to 16 - 24 episodes drama) doesn't make any "normal" characters like those in mini drama?
I love this pairing. Gonna watch it for sure. :)

thumbs up for short dramas. although anything police-procedural-ish tends to hover more above the predictable
and boring territory. i just dont like the genre, its usually way too limited in scope.

I wanted All About My Romance to have a one-episode extension because admit it, it's a very good romcom. But since the ratings have been consistently disappointing (my goodness, Korean audience, what have you been doing?! And are you dwindling in numbers?) I can only be grateful SBS didn't cut short the 16-episode run. Now I only want it to wrap its plot up in the nicest way possible~

At least I didn't watch Kim Minseo in Level 7. I do hope she and Ki Taeyeong will have that charisma in this drama special. Yes, I agree short drama specials have just the right amount to get you hooked (I still can't forget how badass Han Groo was in Girl K) and doesn't sacrifice the character developments which usually happens in the lengthy timetable of the regular dramas. Would anyone be subbing this?
