Kdrama Impressions - Suspicious Partner

Taking over SBS's Wednesday & Thursday 2155 (KST) slot from Saimdang, Light's Diary is Suspicious Partner. 

The lead actor and actresses are Ji Chang Wook and Nam Ji Hyun. 

Oh yes, Ji Chang Wook who played that charismatic secret agent in The K2 and Healer. As Suspicious Partner is more of a Romance-Comedy, there will be less "action" scenes that I will expect. Is he going to take on a similar boy next door feel like in Smile, Dong Hae?

As for Nam Ji Hyun, she is the innocent and sweet girl from Shopping King Louie. She transforms from a country bumpkin in Shopping King Louie, to a prosecutor intern in Suspicious Partner.

Before I started my first episode of the Suspicious Partner, these are my impressions of the two leads. With over four episodes watched, it does reminds me of Pride and Prejudice (another Korean drama) where the leads are also the prosecutor and apprentice/ intern.

Noh Ji Wook (Ji Chang Wook) is a cool but harsh prosecutor. He earned himself the worse prosecutor for being harsh to criminals. Eun Bong Hee (Nam Ji Hyun) becomes his intern in the drama.

A funny encounter on the train, where Bong Hee was molested by a pervert and mistaken Noh Ji Wook as the culprit. How about bumping into someone who you think is a pervert at the hotel cafe and to spite your soon to be ex-boyfriend, ask him for a night? 

In the world of drama coincidences, more chances for the leads to like bump into each other even more often. With four episodes completed, I can say that there are too many coincidences in just the first four episodes of the drama. Oh, I sensed some bromance between Ji Eun Hyuk (Choi Tae Jun) and Noh Ji Wook. "My Ji-Wook-i"! What is the story behind this two? Is it as what I suspected? Something got to do with Ji Wook's painful past?

Anyway, Suspicious Partner will air for 32 episodes, with two episodes each day (a break between for commercials) and two days per week.
