The thing is... Criminal Minds has over a decade of seasons/stories/plot lines which interconnect or grow from previous seasons. I stopped watching around season 8 for various personal reasons, but it has a complexity to the show. I REALLY hope this isn't episodic (I don't think it will?), because I don't think it could feel like the original (and not that KDramas don't have their own personal touch, so I'm looking forward to see how they do this one/who writes it). I just hope there is a solid plot line behind the scene, which will bring the series to a big climax (I know it's cliche, but maybe a serial killer or a series of cases connected). I feel like if there were multiple seasons, that would be different. But this is tVN, not OCN. Can't wait to see what they have in store, seeing as the only CI profiler Kdrama I've seen is in Queen of Mystery, so I think this would be an interesting avenue to explore in an investigation series.
agree, agree! Not an easy thing to pull off a multi-season tv show into a small little mini series. Look what happened to Korea's 'The Good Wife'. It was good but pale and lackluster in comparison to the original show.
Anyone else thinking that this is a waste of an epic sageuk romance pairing? :/ Don't get me wrong, I'm still looking forward to this (bc LJG <3) but they would be an amazing couple in a historical drama instead. This probably won't have any romance (which is not bad but the pairing is way too good).
You are so right. It was on my mind, 2 of the best historical actors joonGi and moonchaewon are doing modern drama, im happy but also why not criminal minds set in the 1500s some historical/sherlock holmes theme/ 16th century serial killers/ some fun creative olden day gadgets that joonGi creates to catch killers and invistigate into their psychology. It wouod be good inovative and hot
I'm just happy this is not a historical drama. How much ever I try I just cannot get myself to watch Korean and Chinese historical dramas. They just don't appeal to me at all. Maybe it is the type of environment I grew up in and the kind of history we have. I don't want to let go of another drama with my fav lead actress just because it is a historical.
Rahul Rossi I agree with you on this one. I miss seeing Joon Gi get the bad guys in a kick ass way, and in Sageuks I get so frustrated when the good guys get trampled on by the elite episode after episode, and then finally they maybe come out on top or maybe they die. I just want to throw my remote at the screen. I love criminal minds, and since this is on TvN they can make it just as gritty and go places they wouldn't on the big 3 networks.
I just want December to come faster so I can watch this, but in real life if December arrives quickly I'm doomed lol. Need to get my shit together. It's already May of 2017 and I've done nothing but binge-watching dramas and being lame.
