The new MBC drama Investigation Couple sounds more like an OCN show as it is about two people from different backgrounds joining forces to catch criminals. But maybe being an MBC show, it will have less dark, gory presentation. Powerhouse actor Jung Jae Young, mainly a movie actor (Someone Special, Welcome to Dongmakgol) but he has also done dramas in recent years (Duel, Assembly), plays an experienced forensic doctor at National Forensic Service who has an eccentric and fussy persona. Jung Yoo Mi of Bravo My Life and Six Flying Dragons fame plays a warm-hearted prosecutor with a photographic memory. They join hands to catch a serial killer. The plot has elements that have been done to death in dramaland, be it the opposite personalities and respective traits or the main plot of a serial killer. Hence, what makes this show worth watching is the ace leading man. And of course, a slick, fast execution can make a great impact.
Investigation Couple started this week as a Monday-Tuesday drama competing against Miracle That We Met (in its last few episodes), recently started Wok Of Love and upcoming tvN romance About Time. It is penned by the writers of Cinderella And Four Knights and helmed by the PD of Soulmate and Ruler: Master of the Mask.
