Kim Hee-ae in talks to become Mrs. Cop

Endlessly elegant Kim Hee-ae (Secret Love Affair, Elegant Lie, A Wife’s Credentials) is being courted to take the lead in an SBS drama titled Mrs. Cop, and that title makes me laugh, so of course she has to do it. Granted, Mrs. Cop isn’t described as a comedy but rather a crime chase thriller where she plays a detective and squad leader, but a cop role is still a bit of a departure for her.

(Really, though, with that title, how could you NOT be a comedy? Such a waste! Especially since Kim Hee-ae has such a hilariously unexpected corny side and a love of gag comedy — she cracked so many jokes and Gag Concert impersonations during her stint on travel-variety program Noonas Over Flowers, and said that she’s interested in comedies but feels like she’s expected to stick to her image. I just want for her to get a chance shatter those expectations.)

Mrs. Cop has secured a slot on SBS’s Monday-Tuesday schedule to follow the upcoming chaebol-in-disguise drama High Society, starring UEE and Sung Joon. That’s a slot that was being considered for SBS’s anticipated sageuk drama Six Flying Dragons, but this means it’s now been pushed back a couple months to October. Well, Dragons is an ambitious 50-episode historical piece, so maybe the wait will do them good and they can make full use of the extra time. Mrs. Cop will launch in early August.

Whaat? SFD is being pushed back? No....
But, personal disappointment aside, I'm more curious about Yoo Ah In's casting in the drama. What's his army situation? Can he delay it any longer, or will SFD start filming as scheduled and wrap up in time for him to go to the army?
Getting more on topic, I'd love to see Kim Hee Ae in a comedy, would be so refreshing.

If SFD starts in October then it will end in late April or early May next year..
Is there enough time for Yoo Ah In? I'm also worried for him and hope he won't pull a Bad Guy on us.

I'm very worried too. He was born in October of 1986, so he's not 29 until later this year... but wait... in Korean age, he'd be 30 already, wouldn't he?

If SBS doesn't do live shooting and starts shooting SFD next month in June, there might be no problem with Yoo Ah In's MS schedule.

Exciting. I hope she takes it.
If Six Flying Dragons had been pushed back so they do better work on it - I am all for it, as much as I look forward to it.

She's one actress that I always look forward to seeing, especially if it's a light hearted role.

We need Jeon Ji-hyun for that!

And...
I also want a GTO adaptation! Kim Sooro's God of Study wasn't it. We need someone less "cool" and more willing to be pervy and silly.

Ah my queen! but why does it have to be SBS? Ironically all the "potentially" good dramas are on this channel of doom. After A Wife's Credentials and Secret Love Affair I wish she could just stick to cable but I have no doubt she will own any character and any project she's in anyway so let's stay positive because yay she's back!

Looking forward to see Kim Hee Ae in comedy role!
Hope that Lee Seung Gi can join her noona as her side kick, as one of the member in her squad team, but not in romantic relationship, because she is already a Mrs. Or at least, Seung Gi can cameo in one of the crime case.

I started to love her after watching Secret Love Affair. Can't believe she's almost 50!
