Lee Si Young in talks to join Park Si Hoo in Korean adaption of 'The Mentalist'


Lee Si Young is in talks to join Park Si Hoo in the Korean adaption of 'The Mentalist'.

On January 20, reports revealed the actress is in talks to play the female lead in the Korean remake of the hit American series 'The Mentalist'. Lee Si Young's label Ace Factory stated, "Lee Si Young has received an offer to star in a remake of 'The Mentalist' and is currently reviewing it."

If cast, Lee Si Young will be playing the character of Teresa Lisbon, the former senior agent and leader of the 'Serious Crimes Unit' for the California Bureau of Investigation.

'The Mentalist' originally ran on CBS from 2008 to 2015. The series followed the story of a psychic-turned-detective who solves crimes and tries to track down the psycho who murdered his family.

hmm.. skeptical about PJ's character can be done justice by any other than SB. The dialogs will be tough to emulate into Korean. If there's only 1 season, we will see a lot of plot holes even bigger than the original series(which had a lot of it). My pre review is it will be a super lame adaptation with over romanticization of characters.

The Mentalist would 100% translate into a Kdrama,its almost like it was written to be one..A psychic con man(of sorts) with a brilliant mind using the CBI(not FBI its a different agency) to hunt down a serial killer with his own network of spies/agents/killers connected to the military and government.it even has a romance between the two leads...

And yeah i can see both Lee Si Young as Teresa and Park Si Hoo as Jane...
