Fighting crime with Sohn Hyun-joo and Jang Seung-jo in The Good Detective 2
JTBC’s The Good Detective 2 has been putting out its last round of promos and we’ve got some new posters as well as a video teaser to tide us over until next week’s premiere.
Reprising their roles from season 1, our beloved buddy cop duo is back with Sohn Hyun-joo (Tracer) as Detective Kang Do-chang and Jang Seung-jo (Snowdrop) as Detective Oh Ji-hyuk. A new serial killer case sets off season 2 and the two are ready to kick some more criminal butts, aided of course by their trusty police squad.
But there’s trouble brewing from a shady chaebol family as well, fueled by inheritance squabbles between legitimate son Choi Dae-hoon (Insider) and his half-sister Kim Hyo-jin (Human Disqualification) – along with her lawyer husband Jung Moon-sung (The Veil).
The new teaser opens with a news report on the serial killer and how public discontent is growing over how the investigations are being handled. As we watch the faceless criminal still at large, the sequence of appearing text reads: “2022, good triumphs over evil. People who cross the line will be chased down until the end.” The police, of course, are trying their best and Kim Hyo-jin asks why they’re so fixated on this case. Detective Oh replies that once he decides on something, he sees it through to the end and Detective Kang agrees that they’re willing to do whatever it takes.
While the police team continue their investigations, we hear the sinister Choi Dae-hoon realize, “You’ve been holding a knife behind the back of my head this whole time.” In the meantime, Kim Hyo-jin decides to put her trust in Detective Oh, who is convinced that, “The truth needs to be uncovered. The truth that has been concealed.” The teaser then closes on a dorky but fun boy band shot, as the police team head out together and whip out their batons in choreographed unison.
Written by Choi Jin-won with PD Jo Nam-gook directing, JTBC’s The Good Detective 2 premieres July 30.
