Live (라이브) is a drama on our radar to live recap after Hwayugi, literally, as it is the drama that will replace Hwayugi in the 21:00 time slot that following week (March 10th). It stars Jung Yu-mi (정유미) and Lee Kwang-soo (이광수) as individuals who are trying to just get by and decide to become officers in order to have a steady paycheck and never get fired. I mean, I guess that is one way to look at job security.
I wasn’t into Live at all at first as I don’t really dig cop dramas. But I changed my tune after watching the trailers, they look so playful! Almost like a Police Academy vibe which gives me serious 80s throwback love. I don’t think it will be as comedic as that, (and you know kdramas like to pile on the tears) but it did make me give the show another look. In the trailer below the man on the right asks the other two why they became police officers and they said it was basically for money and job security. Then they start talking about how this guy looks old, maybe he failed the police academy exam a lot? But then the man takes off his jacket and reveals that he is basically their lieutenant, lol. He mutters that the new recruits are horrible again this year and walks off.
The best way to get over a drama hangover is to hop into the next one, so if you are one of the thousands who will miss Hwayugi, you may as well check out Live at the exact same place and time.
