Where do I begin? Let me get this out of the way: Queen of Mystery 1 vs. Queen of Mystery 2 have two different feels to them. I know because I marathoned season 1 before marathoning season 2, so I immediately recognized a difference in tone. The first season felt sincere, the comedy came more from the situations Seol Ok found herself in so it was completely relatable and the mini cases not only blended into the main mystery of the series, but also served as a strong foundation for Seol Ok and Detective Ha to build their relationship on.

Unlike the first season QOM 2 really leaned into the over-the-top comedy and all of the cases felt very disjointed. It was weird. Almost like from season 1 to season 2 there were different directors and production teams. There wasn't though, I checked. That seamless blend just wasn't there. Instead it felt more like the series was trying to tell everyone's story in a way that highlighted the individuals away from the rest of the cast rather than having a true feel of an ensemble cast which I loved from season 1. I mean, it's a mystery/police drama: it's all about the ensemble!

Not to mention the sudden appearance of Detective Ha's brother who was never mentioned in season 1, Profiler Woo seemed to become even more robotic in season 2, where he was actually a relatable character by the end of season 1 with a budding bromance between him and Detective Ha, and the most anticipated plot revolving around Hyun Soo was confusing and never really explained in any way to make her story relevant.

I know this might all sound critical but there were some positives: the comedy was good and the individual performances were stellar. If nothing else, anytime the medical examiner, Hwang Jae Min was in a scene I was laughing my head off.


The ending felt very much like they are expecting a season 3, which I'm against if season 2 is any indication. There were so many open ended questions left but I honestly don't care. I'll admit that I only finished the drama because I was hoping against hope that it would all come together in the end, but it never did. So all of the big reveals and whatever closure there was just didn't feel as gratifing as the 1st season. Too bad. for all intents and purposes everything was there, but it was put together in the wrong way.

Need Season 3

I really like this Series of Queen of Mystery 1 + 2.... The acting, story line and crime-solving moments are amazing, IMO. The chemistry between the main male and female lead is very good. I always like the main actor and I find him to be good in being strong and yet vulnerable at the same time, to be cute and funny. I also like the main actress in her role as a female Sherlock Holmes. She has good discerning eyes and sharp senses to details. It is a pity that the society she lives in (South Korea) does not appreciate her good talent and skill in being a good detective. She would have been greatly appreciated in other countries, perhaps in USA. I don't know, this is just my opinion. I hope there is a Season 3 because so many issues were left unattended and open-ended. When will the 2 man female and male leads get together and live together or get married? Who the Hell is Secretary Kim and what is his back story --- and Why the heck is he so powerful? Please pretty Please, I beg the Korean Writers, please make Season 3!!!!!!
