Premiere Watch: Major Mouth, Today’s Webtoon, The Superior Detective two
by missvictrix

Thanks to our weekend slots clearing out, we have 3 new dramas premiering — and a good choice certainly, if I do say so myself. Lee Jong-seok tends to make his lengthy-awaited return, Kim Se-jung tends to make a swift return, and the heroes of The Superior Detective make a substantially-anticipated return. That is a lot of returns.

Major Mouth

Time slot: Friday-Saturday
Broadcaster: MBC
Genre: Crime, thriller, legal, mystery
Episode count: 16
Factors to watch: I’m challenging-pressed not to like a Lee Jong-seok drama, so my hopes are higher for his initial drama project in what feels like forever. Granted, I could have preferred a distinctive genre to the thriller noir we are told to count on, but here’s to hoping it will be a exciting ride. Lee Jong-seok plays a lousy lawyer in a failing marriage, and it all hits the fan when he’s mistaken for a effective criminal… and then he decides to play along. Really noir certainly! IMHO there are a lot of pluses and minuses going on with this drama, but the PD (Start off-Up, Hotel del Luna, Whilst You Have been Sleeping, You From An additional Star) delivers a huuuuge increase of self-confidence.
TLDR: Lee Jong-seok returns, married (!) Lee Jong-seok, exciting wordplay, thrilling excitement, noir
Today’s Webtoon

Time slot: Friday-Saturday
Broadcaster: SBS
Genre: Comedy, drama, romance
Episode count: 12
Factors to watch: All of dramaland rejoiced when they heard Se-jung was returning so rapidly just after the joyful accomplishment of Small business Proposal. She’s rapidly switching gears, playing a judo athlete with a cute bob that winds up operating as a webtoon editor. I do not know if I’m far more excited for the cuteness and comedy or for the inside appear at making and editing — but throw in Daniel Choi and some dimples from Nam Yoon-soo, and I’m sold.
TLDR: Se-jung comeback, judo athlete turned webtoon editor, cute hijinks, it will be challenging to make this drama unenjoyable
The Superior Detective two

Time slot: Saturday-Sunday
Broadcaster: JTBC
Genre: Crime, action, thriller, mystery
Episode count: 16
Factors to watch: The substantially-loved duo from JTBC’s thriving The Superior Detective is back for a different round, and so are our heroes Sohn Hyun-joo and Jang Seung-jo! I do not know how it is doable to be as excited as I am, getting not noticed the original drama, but I know it is each effectively-loved and effectively-respected, which is a mixture that does not normally come very easily. Anyway, the production promises far more of what created the initial season a accomplishment, and with the PD, writer, and lead actors all returning, 1 can only count on a different fantastic drama.
TLDR: Second season, favourite detective duo returns, new baddies but identical fantastic writing?
