#MysteryQueen #KDrama Review – Another one of my favourite #KoreanDrama series of 2017 has just finished its run and despite its odd, open ending, I thoroughly enjoyed it 😍! Who knew that mystery and comedy could mix that well in a K-Drama and that #KwonSangWoo could do comedy so well 😁😂?
#ChoiKangHee’s Yoo Seol Ok is a housewife and wannabe detective who helps #LeeWonGeun’s local police officer, Hong Joon Oh, solve petty crimes around her neighbourhood. Seol Ok hides her ‘vice’ from her prosecutor husband, Ho Chul (#YoonHeeSuk), controlling mother-in-law (#ParkJoonGeum) and psychologist sister-in-law Ho Soon (#JunSooJin), and ‘works’ out of her friend, #KimHyunSook’s Kyung Mi’s restaurant. When KSW’s Detective Ha Wan Seung is demoted to the local police station after a drug bust gone wrong, he takes a disliking to Seol Ok’s ‘meddling’, until he realises how accurate she is with her surmises. Along with Joon Oh, #AhnGilKang’s team leader Bae Kwang Tae and #KimMinJae’s Detective Lee Dong Ki, they form a ‘Scooby Doo gang’ of sorts to solve cases in their quirky, bickering ways. Seol Ok and Wan Seung’s pasts collide when they two discover that the disappearance of his former girlfriend, Hyun Soo, is related to Seol Ok’s parents’ apparent suicide. Furthermore, Wang Seung’s father and Ho Chul appear to be in on the conspiracy as well….. What dastardly plot will our gang uncover 😱?
[SPOILER ALERT]: The overarching mystery is not solved and the ending was open for a season 2, so the producers better make it happen 😡! CKH is generally hit-and-miss but she was definitely a hit here 👍. She make Seol Ok her own, whilst KSW and LWG were just as good, and the acting balance from the other cast members complemented the witty, unconventional story well 👍. Aside from the usual mid-drama lull, the plot moved briskly with sprinklings of humour and silliness, making it very enjoyable. Do check this out if you are looking for something different - there's mystery and silliness mixed together! 😊
