Jung Yong-hwa solves the case in KBS’s Brain Cooperation
The first teaser for KBS’s upcoming investigative-comedy Brain Cooperation has arrived and our heroes are putting their heads – or, should I say brains – together to solve the case at hand.
In addition to team shenanigans, we can also expect some fun bromance with Jung Yong-hwa (Sell Your Haunted House) as the calculating neuroscientist Shin Ha-ru – a.k.a. “he with the special brain” – and Cha Tae-hyun (Police University) as our friendly neighborhood cop, Geum Myung-se, who is the “altruistic brain” in the group.
Rounding out the main quartet, Kwak Sun-young (Behind Every Star) takes on the part of the “timid brain” investigator Seol So-jung. All the while, Yeh Ji-won (Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol) plays the “sexy brain” Kim Mo-ran – who also happens to be Myung-se’s ex-wife.
The video teaser opens with our neuroscientist hero performing an autopsy and he visits the prison afterwards to present his findings on the case: “Trembling hands, symptoms of shortness of breath and hyperventilation, a stretched blood vessel at the tip of the nose… That woman won’t be the culprit, I don’t think?”
In the sequence that follows, we meet the rest of our main characters as So-jung leads a meeting and Myung-se tracks down suspects. Mo-ran makes her entrance as well and the intermittent text screens read: “The nation’s first investigative neuroscience drama.”
The teaser then comes to a close on Ha-ru’s shining moment as he suddenly calls out to the team to “Stop!” Turning to face the camera in a back lit idol-hero shot worthy of campy glory, Ha-ru announces: “I have found the culprit. Let’s go catch them.”
Written by Park Kyung-sun with PD Lee Jin-seo (Revolutionary Sisters) and PD Gu Sung-joon co-directing, Brain Cooperation is the first up in KBS’s 2023 lineup, premiering January 2 in the Monday-Tuesday slot.
