A Korean SF/Mystery Historical Drama.

If you get tired of all this Conclave papabile speculation, you can always watch Joseon X-Files: Special Investigation Record, a Korean drama TV show dramatizing Fortean events recorded in the Joseon period (AD 1609) and making a bunch of Korean police and prosecutors go deal with it. In period dress.

So you’ve got a hotblooded, sharptongued, righteous kid prosecutor as the hero, a bunch of Men in Black (literally), and a beautiful researcher chick for the mysterious love interest (because somebody has to read obscure Chinese texts for the team). Also, there’s a Pipe-Smoking Man.

The only way this could be better is if it were a Roman X-Files team, and the show was written by David Drake.
