This woman can sure rock a suit, and going by the descriptions on character and actress alike, she can rock the role of an anchor woman as well. Kim Nam-joo hasn't been in a work since 2012 and it looks like audiences are more than eager to see her in "Misty". For yours truly, it will be a first since 2006 film "Voice of a Murderer".
According to the production of "Misty", the actress has been researching news anchors and constantly practicing in order to perfect her already great speech patterns and pronunciation, to better fit the role. I'm not sure how much of heroine Ko Hye-ran we'll be seeing in her element, however, since I imagine the whole murder case will put her on the other side of the 9 o'clock news, where the character has been working for 7 years.
I'm still not sure if this will be more of a relationship drama than a mystery thriller or if it will manage to combine both in a captivating work, but I'm hoping for the latter. Relationship drama can get tiring when not done well, especially if it's in the form of soap-like affairs and intrigue. A well-developed rekindling of love between interesting characters plus a good mystery framing it all is just what the drama doctor ordered.Which means it will probably kill me, but oh well.
"Misty" will premiere on February 2nd on jTBC, at 23:00 KST.
