I don't even need to know the "how" or "why", because nothing sets the tone of a series quite like Jung Kyung-ho, Park Sung-woong, Oh Dae-hwan and rookie No Jong-hyun chasing a fool down sans several clothing items. "Life on Mars" is here with crimes against humanity and fashion in this first entertaining teaser.
The video is so full of nostalgia, with the old-timey boombox being a great opener for the feel that this is going for. We have crime and we have comedy, and I'd like to imagine that Go Ah-sung's Yoon Na-young is somewhere around, wondering how these idiots could mess up an arrest so badly. Jung Kyung-ho can be heard in voice-over, saying "These 1988 guys' exciting retro investigation record" as he introduces the series.
It looks like Oh Dae-hwan's Lee Yong-gi is the overly eager klutz among them, but I can't credit the rest with utter refinement, when they're running across the sidewalk in varying degrees of exposed man-goods. I'm definitely looking forward to meeting them even more now, preferably in more work-appropriate attire.
"Life on Mars" is a remake of the popular BBC television series. It will begin its run in June on OCN.
