No Min-woo and Kang Seung-hyun will be joining the cast of the second installment of MBC drama Investigation Couple (also known as Partners for Justice).
The show’s first season tells the story of a forensic doctor (played by Jung Jae-young) who works for the National Forensic Service and a rookie prosecutor played by Jung Yoo-mi. The former is notorious for being an eccentric genius while the latter has a photographic memory. They form a duo to solve cases together.
The second season of the show will revolve around the same investigative duo as they struggle to dig the truth behind the ‘Oh Man-sang incident’ which marked the end of the previous season. Jung Jae-young and Jung Yoo-mi will be returning to reprise their roles.
No Min-woo (My Unfortunate Boyfriend) has taken on the role of Dr. Jang Chul, an emergency medicine specialist. His character is described as a cold-hearted man who holds the key to some important truths. Kang Seung-hyun, meanwhile, will play Sally Kim, a charming researcher in the department of medicine. The rookie actress made her acting debut last year and was most recently seen in the movie Believer.
Investigation Couple Season 2 will be penned by Min Ji-eun and directed by No Do-cheol who also worked together in season 1. It is all set to succeed Kim Dong-wook starrer Special Labor Inspector in June.
