Jo Jeong-seok and Han Ji-min have been offered the lead roles in “Two Cops”, a fantasy romance drama about a straitlaced cop possessed by a lazy scam artist.
There are probably only a handful of actors who could pull this role off, and lucky for us, Jo Jeong-seok is one of them. If Jo Jeong-seok accepts, he’ll be playing the role of a dedicated cop who lives for nothing but his work, until the day he’s possessed by a conman. If Han Ji-min accepts, she’ll play the reporter he falls in love with. It’s not your typical cop show setup, which could be why the story won first place at a KBS crime drama script-writing contest.
I’m not sure if their acting styles are too far apart or it’s my own lack of imagination, but I can’t picture Jo Jeong-seok and Han Ji-min as a pair. Then again, I’m alway happy to be proven wrong in these kinds of circumstances, and the premise sounds like fun, so here’s hoping they finalize casting soon.
“Two Cops” is looking to air on MBC in the fall.
