I reached into the suggestion bag for today’s topic. One of our readers requested that we share our favorite dramas from the Mystery genre. There are so many great crime shows out there, but these dramas stood out from the crowd. So grab some popcorn and turn on all the lights in the house. It’s time for some serious mystery and suspense!
I have watched Signal three times so far since it aired. Considering that it aired only six months ago, I think you can assume this is a new all time favorite. And when it comes to mystery, there are mysteries within mysteries. In other words, it is the turducken of mystery dramas.
It’s true, I am totally guilty of having a love affair with this writer. Not only did she pen my all time favorite crime drama Signal, but also created this wonderful hidden gem of mystery. Sign has some of the best killers out of any drama to date. The mix of intense music and creative murder gave me chills more than once.
#3 Bad Guys
Do you like sexy psychopaths solving crimes? Then Bad Guys is the show for you. A fast paced mystery drama that focuses on whether criminals can be used to catch evil killers, Bad Guys expertly mixes hotness with suspense. This is also the drama you want to watch if you enjoyed the recently completed show 38 Squad since it is penned by the same writer.
#4 I Remember You
A wonderful suspense thriller involving a hot genius profiler and his kidnapped psychopath brother. There are so many moments that makes one raise their eyebrow in appreciation….and not just because Seo In Guk and Park Bo Gum are insanely attractive. We will be discussing this drama in one of the Facebook groups I help administer in just a few weeks. It is similar to a book group but for drama watching.

I almost always suggest Ouroboros when it comes to Jdrama mystery. But I decided to be wacky and switch things up. That is why I am throwing out the drama Border to promote my Oguri Shun obsession. Shot in the head and suddenly able to see ghosts, this detective must decide how far he is willing to go to get justice for the deceased. It is a wonderful look into vigilante justice.
#6 Love Me If You Dare
I obviously have a thing for dramas where the leading man might be a crazy killer. We see this theme yet again in my Chinese drama pick Love Me If You Dare. Our Chinese hottie goes deep into the psyche of serial killers. But has he gone so deep that he is becoming a killer himself? This is also my choice if you like a little romance with your murder.
This completes my picks for good mysteries. Do you have a genre or specific topic you want to see in a future post? Throw me a note in the comments and I will give my answer in upcoming Kmuse’s Musings.
Til next time,
