    can’t wait.

  9. 9 : Rose Says:

    They should have recruited David Henney to be in this movie. He was in Criminal Minds, Beyond Borders, US production. Which unfortunately was cancelled after a few seasons. I thought the show was good. He will transfer over to Criminal Minds edition.

    He also was in Korean show “I Live Alone.”

    He was in some Koran dramas in early 2000,

    His mother is Korean and his father is America of Irish descent. Nice looking guy.

  10. 10 : Reem Says:

    I am pretty sure that Lee Joon Ki will do a good drama.

    This year it seems like all the dramas are about criminals and investigations. Although it is entertaining and interesting, I think I am a little bored T-T.

    Except Lee Joon Ki’s drama XD

  11. 11 : MaxT Says:

    The US series of this show was pretty good. Hopefully it’s better.

  12. 12 : areum Says:

    i watches every season of american’s criminal mind, and become my favorite drama. hope this drama as better as american’s criminal mind even just 20 ep.

  13. 13 : Badarahmad Says:

    Where is Newsun ( SONAMOO ) ? She is supporting role as Sister Kim Hyun Joon , Choi Na Yeong.. Hmmm…. -_-

  14. 14 : Leman K Says:

    Well.. I really have a high expectation on this drama.. Because CM is one of my favorite shows.. So please producer-nim and writer-nim.. Don’t mess up..

  22. 22 : MaxT Says:

    I say it ep1 was pretty good. It’s even better than the US version. At least I like the actresses in this K-drama. It’s definitely worth watching. 9.5/10

  23. 23 : sanjinyeon Says:

    the long wait is over…finally Lee Joon Gi is back!!!. I will not compare this to the original criminal minds coz i know this is totally different but the mere fact that Lee Joon Gi is the main lead star is enough for me to watch every single episode coming…

  24. 24 : Kb Says:

    I really enjoy the first two episodes of this criminal minds. the crime case are 2 of my favorite ones from the American version. hope one of the episode will be when 1 of the agent get kidnap the way Morgan did in season 11. anyway really looking forward to how the show will end. And also hope this one have it’s own Mr. Scratch

  28. 28 : Abiodun Abeeb Says:

    Can’t Wait To See If It’s LJK’s Drama, Hope It Dope!

  29. 29 : britney Says:

    This show is really Fascinating for me. I understand many people will (always) compare this show to the original one since it is remake., but one thing I know, the remake is not necessarily 100% similar to the original one. I found this show is absolutely amazing, they deliver criminal in korean way, they make it not that tough but the sense of criminal and profiler is actually there. For certain character, I think the y create ‘that’ character in different package but with the same content, so having some differences is not a big deal for me as long as they still in line. Just enjoy the show, and see a lots of improvement later in character as well as in directing, we still in episode 3, long way to go. Just because they are not that good in premiered episode doesn’t mean the coming episode will be the same. As for me, I am bit touchy and feel like this is not only criminal drama but also talking about humanity. Come on wise person, I m not good in assessing something (of course who am I lol) but I think this drama deserve more appreciation. They come with so much burden already, we need to see this from different point of view n trust me you will fall for them. Looking forward to them.

  30. 30 : gwen Says:

    wow! episode 4.. cried so much.

  31. 31 : Jukbang Says:

    I think episode 4 is the end … but wait .. there’s more episode.. everything just in slow mode … very slow ….

  32. 32 : sanjinyeon Says:

    another masterpiece from Kim Won Hae he truly amazed me with his versatility. I just hope that other viewers will not always compare this kdrama to the original one, because I know all the people who works and played here are really trying their very best to give viewers satisfaction.

  33. 33 : lennyfacetext.com Says:

    great post. i like it. feeling great when reading your post

  34. 34 : kid Says:

    anuone know what is SW to HJ? somehow they’re related to the river case.

  35. 35 : Jukbang Says:

    Run , catch & escape , repeat

  36. 36 : lene Says:

    i think it’s much better if you added a romance between hj and sw 🙂

  37. 37 : Ica Says:

    Good drama, good acting for lee jun ki and son hyun jo, but i think moon chae won not fit for this character
    Cause she is to feminin. But she has been hard try to show her good acting in this drama.we Should appreciate this.
    But the rating not high enough. The story going slow.
    Maybe the director must show a little hardbeat to making intense story. So the rating can going high
    I ‘m saying is too bad that this good korean drama cannot have high rating.

  38. 38 : RR Says:


  39. 39 : abi Says:

    At first i feel cold for this drama, why there’s no mystery at every cases in this drama. And i forget, this drama title is criminal minds, the point of view are from the criminal…
    The thriller great enough to make me chill, yup…as always joon ki show good acting…

  40. 40 : imgrum Says:

    I can’t believe that I have not heard any news about this drama 😮 although I often read netizen blog. Thank you for sharing!! Son Hyun Joo nim, Lee Joon Ki oppa~ and criminal drama, more than one reasons to watch this movie!!

  41. 41 : lene Says:

    the drama title should be a “Boring Minds” 🙁

  42. 42 : Jukbang Says:

    TVN failed again .

  43. 43 : Aiu Says:

    It’s sad that this series will end soon, 4 episodes left!
    I’m a Fan of Criminal Minds US and i’m excited about the korean version too. At first i’m a little dissapointed because the main lead that presented Derek (main male lead CM US) has smaller body. Derek is a big, tall, sturdy and has six packs body haha, on the other hand Lee Joon Gi is smaller than him. But it’s ok for me because LJG played his role very well.
    In CM US version, the male lead Derek (played by LJG) will has romantic story (even married) with a nerd smart girl Penelope Garcia (NaNa played by Yoo Sun). I don’t know if CM Korea version will have the same plot too, it will be sad for LJG and MCW fans.
    Anyway, i’m satisfied with the korean version and i hope there will be CM second season! Thumbs up!

  44. 44 : Jamm Says:

    Good drama, that why i always ask ? if someone kill other or someone rape other people, they punish with several years in prison/jail. Is that justice .

    can you bring back died victim, can you erase bad memory from rape victim.

    Human right association said that violates human right for the criminal if they get died penalty as punish, but did they look from the victim side ?.

    answer NO.


  45. 45 : Mardona Says:

    I commented on this show with a couple others when it first started came back and I noticed that the comments that were honest are gone. Whether you are paid to create this or not the ratings shows what we felt clearly Koreans felt. Bad look Korean drama. If the writers saw our comments maybe they would have gotten on track.

  46. 46 : imgoon Says:

    great post. i like it. feeling great when reading your post

  47. 47 : DCL Says:

    Predictable but not bad….

  48. 48 : Emily Says:

    He’s the greatest actor and he acts very well in the drama.

  49. 49 : Mae Says:

    I always watch this drama when it was aired, every week I was amazed by their acting especially oppa Lee Joon GI, every week I was thrilled because its not boring if u just find the real essence of the story that goes the title criminal minds. You will be addicted to watch it every two times a week if what happen next because different cases they are solving.. I will give thumps up for this drama..

  50. 50 : today Says:

    I liked the clothings of both Na Na Hwang and
    Yoo Min Young in this show, wonder what are the brands or sponsors of these clothes…..
