"Mystery Queen"

"Mystery Queen"

The concept of the "ajumma", the older married woman has had a rough times. While often a stereotype to be ridiculed and kept within traditional confines, it has begun taking more progressive forms as Korean drama evolves. In this case, our"Mystery Queen"will cook dinner, then arrest your sorry hide.

Premise

Yoo Seol-ok (Choi Kang-hee) is a woman who married early and had to give up on her dream of becoming a detective. Ha Won-seung (Kwon Sang-woo) is a detective who thinks with his fists. When Seol-ok becomes involved in a case, she gets another chance at her dream. The two characters do not get along, but they have to work together.

The Worrying

"Mystery Queen""Mystery Queen"

Selling Non-romance

Leading man-woman friendships are rare in Korean drama and this leaves me curious as to what type of a relationship our characters will have. Thankfully platonic pairings have been featured in some successful dramas lately, so perhaps this one will also do well. I do worry about a possible "husband as a villain" twist, if ratings fail, but I hope they will avoid that.

New Writer

A great element to have in a series when they manage, a new writer is like a promise of a fresh take on things which have been done in mostly the same boring, cookie-cutter ways time and time again. At the same time, it is an unknown element. WriterLee Seong-min-II's story won the channel's screenwriting competition, however, so that is a promising start.

The Reassuring

Good Cast

Aside from the ever-reliableChoi Kang-heeandKwon Sang-woo, the supporting cast is full of known and beloved faces. Going by what the highly enjoyable promotional material has shown us, the world of"Mystery Queen"will be a small and quaint one, which means the locations and the characters tied to them need to make the world feel alive. A good cast helps achieve that.

Fun Premise

I always worry when Korean drama handles women and our issues. If works like "Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" are anything to go by, the industry has not yet reached an understanding of feminism. Thankfully such shows are not the only thing to go by, as we see more and more works getting it right. I hope this work will use its two leads and their adventures well.

Closing Thoughts

KBS2 is responsible for some great underdog hit stories, such as"Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho"and more recently"Chief Kim". It has done interesting things with its drama specials and shorts, so perhaps"Mystery Queen"can be another quirky little gem. A good mystery, some bickering camaraderie and I am sold.

"Mystery Queen"begins its run on April 5th and will air every Wednesday and Thursday at 22:00, on KBS2. It is directed byKim Jin-woo-IIandYoo Yeong-eun-I, written byLee Seong-min-IIand featuresChoi Kang-hee,Kwon Sang-woo,Lee Won-geunandShin Hyun-bin.
