Lee Joon Ki....woops, we mean, Lee Yi Kyung of Go Go Waikiki fame will be trading in his comedic antics for a role as a detective in a new MBC drama, Investigation Couple.

The talented and hilarious actor's company, HB Entertainment, has confirmed that he will be playing Chief Detective Sangsoo, who has been described as a "manlike character with a muscular body". It sounds like this role will be a sharp turn away from his comedic role as Lee Joon Ki in Go Go Waikiki, but, you never know!

The premise of this drama is the unlikely collaboration of a prosecutor and a forensic scientist who join forces to find answers to mysterious deaths by catching the culprit. The series will be penned by Min Ji Eun, the same writer who wrote Cinderella and the Four Knights.

Casting is still underway, with roles being offered to actors Jung Yoo Mi and Jung Jae Young, but we'll have to sit tight for official confirmation. An actor who has confirmed is Park Eun Seok (Rebel : Thief of The People, The Gentleman of Wolgyesu Tailer Shop) who will be joining the cast.

Investigation Couple is slated for a May release.
