Lee Young-ae becomes a homebody gamer for Inspector Koo

Upcoming JTBC investigative comedy Inspector Koo (formerly known as Wonderful Gu Kyung-yi) has just released its first teaser. Featuring Lee Young-ae (Saimdang, Light’s Diary) as the titular character, the drama is an adaptation of the critically-acclaimed BBC show, Killing Eve.

Lee Young-ae’s character, Koo Kyung-yi, is a private insurance investigator and pathological homebody who can’t stand it when she gets into a rut in terms of gaming or investigating. In the teaser, she sits in a dark basement with trash littered all around her. She pays no attention to her squalid surroundings because she’s so focused on her game. She yells, “Kill everything! Kill everything!” until she reaches a point in her game where she wins and then exclaims with joy, “I did it!”

The next scene shows a garbage man completely surprised as Koo Kyung-yi rolls out of the back of his dumpster. A crowd is gathered in front of some type of phenomenon, and Koo Kyung-yi watches with suspicious eyes, huddled under a comforter. The onscreen copy reads: “I’m not… a crazy person.” However, Lee Young-ae’s voiceover says, “That’s doubtful,” as the teaser ends.

Written by Sung Cho-yi and directed by Lee Jung-heum, JTBC’s Saturday-Sunday drama Inspector Koo will air in October.

The problem for me is that season one of Killing Eve was so extraordinarily good, that even if this is terrific, I may be disappointed because I am unable to keep from comparing the two..

It must be a very, very loose adaptation because nothing about this description or teaser says Killing Eve to me.

Exactly. While Eve was kooky at times, she was an accomplished field agent. Plus, the whole cat and mouse game between her and Villanelle was the highlight of the original show. They do have her chasing a female serial killer here, but how much will they show the sexual attraction both have for one another?! Hmm...I'm glad this is a female centric cast which is rare to see, but thus far, this is no adaptation. That's not a bad thing per say, but I do hope they retained as much of the good stuff from Killing Eve, & focus more on the female lead and 2nd FL dynamics than boring cases.

I would further add, Villanelle is far more kooky than Eve is. Eve was a little strange, but bless her serial killing heart, Villanelle was straight up weird, lol, in a good way.

The description for the Villanelle type of character here is a hipster/aspiring actress lol, so probably still kooky. I like the actress they got for her too (she was awesome as the Queen in Kingdom).
