I am super excited to hear those two shows are similar to K2. The Player sounds right up my street (makes me think of a movie called Now You See Me) but unfortunately it’s not available in my region…but hey, it’s still making it on my to watch list.
Someone above mentioned Cold Eyes, I whole heartedly agree with this. Another good crime movie is Commitment
Some of my favorites in the Crime genre are…
slow paced, but the acting is amazing, I love Nam Da Reum in this (the ML as a kid)
This one’s about a serial killer, so not sure if it fits your criteria
not political at all, just crime
Has anyone mentioned Suspicious Partner?
I just remembered a couple of Choi Jin Hyuk crime dramas, I haven’t finished the first two, what I did watch I liked, and I’m not sure about the last one, but it has a decent rating. Not on Viki, but Rugal is definitely crime and corruption, but it’s another one I haven’t finished. (I couldn’t tell you how long my on-hold list is)
And I love Confidential Assignment but not on VIKI
Yes, it’s a teensy bit like Now You See Me! Team of con-artists. But no fancy magic tricks There’s a hacker, a guy who beats up people, a girl who can drive anything and the brains behind every operation. And loads of comedy in between.
I think you’ve just sold me the next kdrama to watch! This sounds like a dream team cast haha.
but I always give everyone who watches this one warning: THERE IS NO ROMANCE.
I actually stopped watching about three episodes in because I was disappointed over the lack of romance (I started shipping two characters but realized it’s more of a sibling relationship).
Once I got over it, I LOVED the drama. I stopped even wanting romance because the way they treat the FL like their younger sister is ADORABLE. they’re a bunch of annoying siblings, competing with each other for “Favorite Oppa” status with her it was really wholesome.
Hope you like it!
Well Viki had
- Crime Squad 38 which is called 38 Task Force and some other.
It’s a well done Crime/Police drama with the handsome Seo In Guk.
This is one a political corruption drama, really well done:
and this is good as well, it’s about power/money corruption:
It used to be titled “Neighborhood Lawyer Jo” why was it changed and to Mr. Joe which is more american sounding??? I even asked to fix this, lol but no, I think it’s because of Kocowa.
