OCN is a cable network that has given us lots and lots of thriller shows (Vampire Prosecutor, Ten, Cheo Yang to name a few) and it is bringing again another crime thriller titled Reset which is premiering this Sunday as a weekly show with one episode each week. The drama stars Chun Jung Myung and Kim So Hyun in the lead roles. 2014 kick started with lots of drams of this genre — God’s Gift – 14 Days, Three Days, Gapdong etc and I actually grew tired of them pretty fast, and the current deluge of rom-coms makes me so happy that I don’t think I’m ready for another nail-biting journey right now. The plot is intriguing but sounds like “we have already seen it”. Chun Jung Myung plays a prosecutor who lost his first love 15 years ago when she was murdered. He now focuses solely on his cases with also hoping that he would find a lead in that older case. Just as the statute of limitations are about to get over, he finds some clue of the killer. Also, he meets a teenage girl who looks just like his first love. I think the set-up is pretty much loaded with many thrills and chills and if done well, I might give this a try for a change as my current plate is full of romance and fun (not that I’m complaining!)
Reset will be Chun Jung Myung’s first drama in three years as his last was Man Of Honor with Park Min Young that came in 2011. Kim So Hyun is one of the most talented and popular child actresses of dramaland and although the age gap between our hero and her would raise some eyebrows, I think they won’t be having any love line here as the hero loved her in his teenage and now, well she is still a teenager.
I can’t say I’m eagerly waiting for this show but I’ll keep an eye on this one. Check out the posters that are stylishly made but remind me of Gapdong‘s posters.
I wouldn’t mind checking this out if it gets subbed.
I’m sure it will get subbed…looking at the fast speed and range of shows getting subbed nowadays…
do tell me your thoughts on it 🙂
I think I’m more interested in the OCN drama coming after this, but as I enjoy crime shows I’ll give Reset a go for sure. No guaranatees I’ll stick with it though.
Which one is coming after this?? I also enjoy thrillers a lot…i’ll wait for your reviews to see whether to watch it or not… 🙂
Bad Boys 🙂 The premise sounds more interesting, on paper anyway but you never know how these things’ll turn out. OCN dramas have a tendency to be more surface than substance but at least they look great and usually have competent enough crew. TEN is probably the best of the bunch and I’m kinda bummed we have to wait for god knows how long for S3. Ditto for VP3.
There hasn’t been a crime show to truly grab me for ages so I hope Reset is at least half way decent in the plot department.
Oh right…I’m also excited about Bad Boys…the cast looks pretty good too…
Yeah…OCN shows are very stylish but I can’t say about the substance as I haven’t seen any of them..
I did try some crime dramas that premiered this year…but each one of them turned out to be disappointing…the one which I was loving, God’s Gift – 14 Days, had one of the worst endings 😦
