The casting for Investigation Couple is underway with MBC sending offers here and there to actors they think would fit the characters for its forensic-legal drama.
MBC is still courting Jung Jae-young (Duel) and Jung Yoo-mi (Bravo My Life), while rising actor Lee Yi-kyung (Laughter in Waikiki) has already confirmed his participation in the series.
According to HB Entertainment, the actor accepted the production’s offer to play the role of ‘a very manly’ detective. The series will revolve around a prosecutor and a forensic scientist who would join forces to catch culprits and solve mysterious murders. It would be written by Min Ji-eun, whose past works include Cinderella and the Four Knights.
Investigation Couple is slated to air in May.
