Hunting for clues with Lee Kwang-soo, Seolhyun in tvN’s Murderer’s Shopping List
Fun and campy promos have been released for tvN’s upcoming Murderer’s Shopping List and I’m stupidly excited to see Lee Kwang-soo (Live) in a new comedy-mystery.
The story takes place in a quiet and ordinary neighborhood where a mysterious murder incident occurs out of the blue. The only real clue to the murderer’s identity, though, is a receipt from the local supermarket where Lee Kwang-soo works as a cashier and his mom Jin Hee-kyung (Was It Love) is the owner. Teaming up with police officer Seolhyun (Awaken), the three put their heads together to try and help solve the crime.
The cast lineup also includes Lee Kwang-soo’s dad Shin Sung-woo (The Great Seducer) as well as neighborhood residents Jang Won-young (Born Again), Moon Hee-kyung (Show Window: The Queen’s House) and Park Ji-bin (Inspector Koo) among others.
The new teaser begins with Lee Kwang-soo trying to search between the gaps beside the store counter while Seolhyun is busy investigating the crime scene. The music is tense as Lee squeezes himself between the furniture and grabs the torn paper receipts. Examining each shred carefully, he tries to piece them back together and his voiceover is repeated in the appearing captions: “The culprit can be found in the receipt.” Suddenly a customer arrives off screen, throwing a bagged fish onto the counter and scaring Lee Kwang-soo. We hear the customer asking to pay for his purchase and he tells Lee to throw out the receipt.
After the drama’s title card, the music takes a comical turn and we cut back to Lee Kwang-soo still trying to sort through the torn receipts. Jin Hee-kyung peers over Lee’s shoulder to see what he’s doing and gets angry when she realizes what he’s up to. Jin scoffs, “What do you think you’re doing? Do you think you’re CSI or something? What is this?!” She grabs Lee in a headlock, reprimanding him, and Lee cries, “Mom!” in protest. Seolhyun watches the scene unfold with growing panic and the teaser comes to a close as she quickly sneaks away unseen.
Written by Han Ji-wan (The Ghost Detective) with film director Lee Un-hee (The Accidental Detective 2, Missing) at the helm, tvN’s Murderer’s Shopping List premieres April 27 following Kill Heel.
