Is ‘Sensory Couple’ A Comedy?

Park Yoo Chun is playing a detective again. He carries a badge in his upcoming drama “Sensory Couple,” and, as was the case in his previous drama “Missing You,” his character becomes a detective to solve a case that traumatized him.

Only this time, the preview for the drama makes it seem as if his upcoming tour of duty will be a happier and more comic one. That’s not what you might expect from the plot summary.

In “Sensory Couple” Park Yoochun plays Choi Moo Gak. Choi joined the police force because his sister was killed in an unsolved case known as the Barcode Murder. Not only did the traumatic event cause him to become a detective so he could solve cases. It left him emotionally numb and made it difficult for him to relate to others.

Shin Se Kyung plays Oh Cho Rim. She survived the same murder that killed Choi Moo Gak’s sister. Even though she cannot remember the incident, it did affect her in a rather bizarre way. The trauma had the opposite effect on her than it did on Choi Moo Gak. Her senses were heightened to a paranormal degree. She senses too much and does so in peculiar ways.

Together Choi Moo Gak and Oh Cho Rim will try to solve the murder case that so affected their lives. Her paranormal senses will help uncover clues but ultimately she will have to unlock her memories to find the killer.

When the drama was first cast, it sounded like a melodrama and that’s territory both actors are familiar with.

Park Yoochun has acted in a variety of productions; the melodrama “Missing You,” the action thriller “Three Days,” the historical drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and the fantasy fusion comedy “Rooftop Prince,” so comedy is not new territory for him. Shin Se Kyung’s recent productions included “Tazza 2,” “Blade Man” and “When A Man Loves” did not suggest the comic flare she displays in the preview.

The drama also stars Nam Goong Min and Yeoo Ji Seo, Kim So Hyun, Jung Chan Woo, Kim Byu Woook and Lee Won Jung. It begins on April 1.

“Sensory Couple” reunites Park Yoo Chun with two colleagues from the “Rooftop Prince set,” actress Kim So Hyun and writer Lee Hee Myung. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. It looks like a comedy, right? Did you expect that?
