This drama focuses on a group of detectives in the Seoul Gangnam Police Homicide Division who solve crimes based on real life cases with their variety of skills and investigative methods. At the forefront of the team is the impulsive and hotheaded detective Park Se Hyuk and the cold, commanding police chief, Jung Il Do. Park Se Hyuk’s passion for his work and rough personality results in a tendency to take action first before thinking later, in contrast with Jung Il Do’s by-the-book style. However, his greatest weapon is an instinctive knowledge of a criminal’s tricks and mental workings that he gained from his father, the legendary thief, and his own childhood in the streets. Together with the other members of a special team formed to catch Lupin, a notorious burglar, he juggles work with his own personal quest to find his father and confront his older brother, a crooked detective.

    Hi Tess & OK OK OK … Ha! so it seems that happend what i suggest ! since the bigning and i feel that the character of the leading actress would be a new copy of jin bo bae of AMCG… really thats not engorging me to watch sig’s new drama !!!! BUT I cant do that !!! i cant pass a day without seeing his wonderful performance , in fact im watching KOTW right now and its my first time to watch it as well and amazed by his loving sight !!!

    OK OK OK i have watched AMCG till the end and i recommend u to watch it as there will be a big turn over starting from 13 really epis 13 +14 really adorable..

    @ Ra

    I will watch AMCG if i got the mood or run out of other drama…. ^.^
    BTW – what is KOTW that you mentioned? :)

    OK OK OK

    KOTW is Kingdom of the Winds. It’s a sequel of Jumong. Song Il Kook won an acting award in that drama. That drama has been an entry in the Emmy Awards.

    The ratings in the last two episodes of Crime Squad dropped tremendously. Maybe it’s because the writers made reporter Min Jo tagged along with Detective Park Se again. The ending was not as happy as we expected. Song Ji Hyo knew who his real father was after he was killed. SIK did not reconcile with his wife.

    What can I do? I have been complaining about this drama from the start, foreseeing another clumsy and annoying reporter being paired again with SIK, just like in A Man Called God. I even commented that this drama would break or make him, if it failed. But the writers and directors were insensitive and blind to feel and see the viewers’ sentiments.

    After Ji Seong and Song Il-gook fails to succeed in MBC TV “Kim Soo Ro” and “A Man Called God”, they returned with MBC TV “Royal Family” and KBS 2TV “Detectives in Trouble

    Song Il-gook is detective Park Se-hyeok in “Detectives in Trouble”. He is warm and mild but one who can’t stand injustice

    look ;)

    It have nice story line and good actors. But, it have the dead scenes and the continuous murderers repeatedly so that it made some scenes are boring and too seriously. However, it still be worth for watching.
