A forgetful killer can be a dangerous thing. Noh Ji Wook (Ji Chang Wook) is a prosecutor who changes jobs to become a private attorney at a powerful law firm. Eun Bong Hee (Nam Ji Hyun) is a prosecutor trainee who works with prosecutor Cha Yoo Jung (Nara), Ji Wook’s ex-girlfriend who desperately wants to win him back. Attorney Ji Eun Hyuk (Choi Tae Joon) is a longtime family friend of Ji Wook’s but harbors some resentment about their different family circumstances. When a murderer strikes, Bong Hee suddenly finds herself as a suspect in the murder. But it appears the real killer has amnesia, and the killer keeps coming after Bong Hee and Ji Wook. Can the two team up to catch the forgetful killer? “Suspicious Partner” is a 2017 South Korean drama series directed by Park Sun Ho.

I’m adding this drama to the list mainly for Ji Chang Wook. Look at that pout in the picture on the left. Oh. Em. Gee. Who’s ready to see Wookie back on screen? I know it hasn’t been that long since The K2, but I’m anxious to see Ji Chang Wook in a non-action role. Yes, I loved Healer to death and The K2 had it’s moments, but Wookie in a rom-com? Yes, please. Where can I sign up?
Also, Nam Ji Hyun was such a great, expressive actress in Shopping King Louis that I’m anxious to see what kind of personality her character will have here.
The only thing that’s slightly off putting: the title. Devon and Cornwall have talked about bad titles and titles that just don’t make sense or don’t sound good. The title Suspicious Partner sounds a bit bland and obvious. It’s not particularly a selling point for me, but if there’s anything we’ve learned in dramaland, it’s that a title doesn’t hold much stock in the grand scheme of things. Here’s to hoping this is a solid drama because I have pretty high standards after seeing Healer.
