Not suuuuper similar but the suspense and crime-solving techniques are what make me think if you like Criminal Minds, you'd Like Strong Woman. Both go to pretty dark places in a persons mind. Also, Criminal Minds was mentioned in Strong Woman so there's that. Strong Woman is a softer, crime drama in that there is more to it than just crime solving.
If Criminal Minds is too dark I'd definitely check out the Strong Woman!
Just saw episode 1.... not sure what to think of it yet. If you're a big fan of the US version then you'll noticed that they took some scenes from various episodes and put it in to one epidode. I'm still giving this a chance though.
Totally boring for me.
And it comes from someone, who can barely remember the original one.
IDK, but the story/cases are not so interesting to me and characters are not likable to me.
So sorry, but dropping this :(
At least I can DL the badass OST
Just in case anyone wants to know which episodes of the American version of Criminal Minds the Korean version has been adapted from:
Ep 1-2 (Korean): Season 1, Episode 1 (American) - "Extreme Aggressor"
Ep 3-4(?) (Korean): Season 1, Episode 9 (American) - "Derailed"
It's been a while since I saw the original, but I think there is a different vibe in the second story involving the train. You might check that out and see if it works for you but, yeah, it should be suspenseful if they are doing it right.
