Mrs. Cop 2 is the 2nd installment to the relatively successful Mrs. Cop franchise. If you like badass ahjummas and police stories (and a bad Beom-puppy), this drama is for you!
MRS. COP 2 TRAILER
The Mrs. Cop 2 trailer feels like a bunch of Hollywood cliches fused together so I’m not sure if it’s tongue in cheek humor. Happily, Show is better than what the trailer suggests. 🙂
MRS. COP 2 SUMMARY
Choi Young-Jin (Kim Hee-Ae) returns from training with the FBI in New York and takes the helm over the ace squad in the police department. It’s not an easy task though and while she hurdles the challenges of work and family, she also pursues a cold case from her past.
Here is one of Young-Jin’s daily challenges — getting folks at her workplace to recognize her.
Young Jin assembles a ragtag team composed of Dae-Hoon as the sunbae policeman, Yeo-Ok, a younger hothead version of Youngin, Seung-Il, an inflexible policeman, and Sang-Chul (Seol’s little brother from Cheese in the Trap!) as the funny newbie and baby in the team.
Their ultimate mission will be to catch Lee Ro-Joon, a rich, powerful, and menacingly disturbed youg man. Will Young-Jin be able to bring justice to his victims? (And will Young-Jin be able to show up all the cynical macho policemen in her workplace?)
MRS. COP 2 INITIAL REVIEW
Because of my policy to give promising dramas a chance by watching all Episode 1’s, I stumbled upon Mrs. Cop 2. I’d initially tried the original Mrs. Cop but didn’t get sufficiently interested so I didn’t pick it up.
Without having watched the original show and seen the original cast, I can still say that Young-Jin has crafted a superbly strong, unique, and watchable character. She is so full of personality and spunk. I love her expensive tastes, frugal habits, sleek wardrobe, and hand-to-hand combat skills.
I love how the first episode showed us what Young-Jin was capable of as she gave chase to a criminal in heels and in a tour bus. And how cool was it when she beat up that hooligan? The Japanese tourists on the bus were a hoot!
Suffice it to say, I enjoyed the first two episodes. I love her ragtag team a lot and can’t wait to see the next installments.
If I had any beef with Mrs. Cop 2, it’s that the dark elements don’t seem that dark to me. Or maybe that’s just an overdose of Signal heebie jeebies. I gotta stop comparing Mrs. Cop 2 to the best show of 2016 as it’s too unfair. Tee hee.
I’m especially enjoying the role of Dae-Hoon as the veteran in the team here. He’s kinda dirty (literally and figuratively) but that’s exactly what the team needs. And how cute was that meal between Yeo-Ok and Seung-Il? I have a feeling they’ll be the romance part of Show.
Man, they ate so heartily! The food was just ordinary but the way they tucked in made me super hungry!
Here they are reaching for the very last piece of the rolled eggs. Ha! Cute!
Mrs. Cop 2 isn’t a high-level drama but I think I’ll enjoy the succeeding episodes. What do you think, drama pals? Check back once Mrs. Cop 2 ends to find out my final rating and verdict for Show.
My love to you,
