The first look and teaser of Ji Chang Wook's upcoming SBS drama Suspicious Partner has become the talk among netizens. In this rom-com, Wook plays No Jin Wook, a no-nonsense, clever, and merciless prosecutor with top-claws win rates. While working on a mysterious case, Wook falls for a newbie lawyer Eun Bong Hee (Nam Ji Hyun). Wook has two things to deal with—a traumatic past involving his childhood and first love, and an amnesic killer.
SBS released a series of images from the drama and Wook looks stunning in each of them. The first still shows Wook in his serious prosecutor getup—fit and handsome—while the another still showed his cuter side. This was followed by the teaser that ended on a hilarious note. Then, Ji Hyun's taekwondo avatar was revealed and now the team has unveiled the first meeting between the lead pair. In one of the images, Wook is looking at Ji Hyun in surprise and disbelief.
A representative from SBS has told Soompi earlier that the drama will explore a new side of Wook. So far, we have seen him mostly in action-oriented roles, while the Suspicious Partner gives him the platform to experiment on rom-com.
"He has been putting all his efforts in perfecting different expressions for his lovable character on the show. We believe everyone will fall in love with the character of No Jin Wook and are optimistic about this drama," the spokesperson added. The drama also stars Choi Tae-joon and Kwon Na-ra in key roles.
Ji Chang is fresh from the release of his crime thriller "Fabricated City," which also marked his first feature film as the solo lead. Directed by Park Kwang-hyun, this action-crime thriller also starred Shim Eun-kyung and Ahn Jae-hong in important roles.
Suspicious Partner will be aired on May 10 at 10 p.m. KST. Which is your favourite Ji Chang Wook drama? Comments us your feedback!
