Suspicious Partner is an odd mix of legal, thriller and romantic comedy. Luckily, it does all the different genres well, leading to an entertaining watch.
The show's strongest aspect are the characters. From our mismatched group of lawyers to the criminals, everyone is will written and acted. Comedy abounds as they annoy each other and care for each other, and the main villain is not only terrifying in how smart he is but also manages to be intriguing; is he a terrible person who needs to be caught? Yes. But there's also a drive to find out his backstory about why he's doing all this. Even the one-shot characters are fully fleshed out.
Ji Chang Uk and Nam Ji Hyeon are great as the leads, hitting all the comedic moments while allowing for romance to bloom. All the supporting cast take their characters and run with them, bringing their quirks to life and interacting seamlessly with each other.
The directing allows the comedy to shine and all the shots are gorgeous.
