Watch: Lee Young Ae Is An Eccentric Sleuth Who Swears She’s Not Crazy In 1st Teaser For New Mystery-Comedy Drama
JTBC has shared its first sneak peek of its upcoming drama “Inspector Koo” (also known as “Koo Kyung Yi”)!
“Inspector Koo” is a new comedy-mystery drama starring Lee Young Ae as the titular Koo Kyung Yi, a brilliant insurance investigator who used to be a police officer, but became a recluse after the death of her husband. Despite no longer being a police officer, Koo Kyung Yi enjoys solving cold cases for the thrill of it, and she winds up facing off against a female college student who is secretly a serial killer when she begins investigating a mysterious murder case.
In the drama’s newly released first teaser, Lee Young Ae makes a striking transformation into the eccentric Koo Kyung Yi, who is completely different from the characters the actress has played up until now.
Surrounded by heaps of trash in her messy home, Koo Kyung Yi passionately plays games late at night while yelling, “Kill them all! Kill them all!” After winning, she triumphantly raises her arms to the heavens and shouts, “It worked!”
As the captions dramatically insist, “She isn’t a crazy person,” Koo Kyung Yi shocks a sanitation worker by suddenly emerging from a pile of garbage. The startled worker exclaims, “What is that? Is that a person?”
The teaser ends with Koo Kyung Yi staring down the camera with a wary gaze as she says, “That’s suspicious.”
“Inspector Koo” will premiere in October. In the meantime, check out the new teaser for the drama below!
