Kang Daniel and Chae Soo-bin report for duty in Disney+ drama Rookie Cops

In anticipation of its premiere later this month, Disney+’s original drama Rookie Cops has been steadily releasing new promos, including a pile of character posters and stills.

Set on the campus of a police academy, the coming-of-age comedy is about a group of young, fearless, and passionate trainees and follows their growth as they learn to become real police officers.

In his first leading role, Kang Daniel plays the highly principled Wie Seung-hyun. He values integrity above all else and can never turn a blind eye to any injustices.

Chae Soo-bin (A Piece of Your Mind) takes on the part of Go Eun-kang. With plenty of courage and determination, once she puts her mind to something, she sees it through to the end.

As for our second leads, Lee Shin-young (Awaken) plays the former Judo athlete Kim Tak who once competed at the nationals, while Park Yoo-na (True Beauty) is the charismatic A-plus student Ki Hanna.

In supporting roles, we have the extroverted crime-drama lover Park Sung-joon (Run On), the curious Do-hee (How to Buy a Friend) who dreams of joining the forensics team, the systematic planner Kim Woo-shik (Scripting Your Destiny), and the child-like Chun Young-min (The Devil Judge).

The cast lineup also includes Kim Sang-ho (My Name), Sohn Chang-min (Record of Youth), Lee Moon-shik (Move to Heaven), and Seo Yi-sook (Start-Up), among others.

Written by Lee Ha-na and directed by PD Kim Byung-soo (That Psychometric Guy, Nine, Queen In-hyun’s Man), Rookie Cops will be releasing January 26 on Disney+.

The big mystery will be Kang Daniel... After Ji-Soo, another big idol without any acting experience in a main role. In the trailer, he looks more like a second role.

Otherwise, I like the casting and it looks more joyful than Live and more focused on training than investigating than Police University.

Went to see his acting resume (https://mydramalist.com/people/15935-kang-daniel) and it's the first time I've seen one that's emptier than hers: not even a single cameo and literally everyone in the cast has more experience than him. And even then she was billed below Jung Hae In: what did Chae Soo Bin do to get partnered with someone so unexperienced?

As for the drama itself, I do like the posters, though the MBTI feels like they're trying to force characters into particular caricatures. If the writing focuses more on the slice-of-life without injecting manufactured crime cases into the story, it could be a nice and easy watch. It will get interesting if they tackle the clash in idealism that the recruits have against the realism that comes along with being tied down by bureaucratic red tape: I suppose some of them may find themselves more suited to different careers or even different specialisations within the police force (hopefully they aren't all training to become defacto detectives).

Being the winner of a Mnet Produce 101 made him very buzzworthy. He seems to be a nice person and worked very hard with a loaded schedule. But except MVs, he doesn't have any acting experience so we just can hope he will be good, not completely bad?

I don't think I've ever encountered a character with the surname Wie before. Seen characters with rarer surnames, but not this one. Wonder if Wie Ha-jun's popularity prompted that.

Seems like Chae Soo Bin and Kang Daniel being the bigger names get the lead status, but the trailer gives me a comedic ensemble vibe, like Woohoo Waikiki

Is Disney + going to pull another Snowdrop by releasing this drama only to East Asia or will it be available worldwide on the 26?

Only APAC. All their kdrama and variety releases are only in APAC. Maybe after 5-6 months they'll release them for other countries but that's also a maybe. Its the same all their East Asian and SEA content.

Dear Disney+, you have an audience outside of Asia who would love to watch your Korean dramas.
