Synopsis

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.

    What is your role in the drama?

    A : 내가 맡은 역할은 범인을 잡기 위해선 그 어떤 수단 방법도 가리지 않는열 혈형사 역할입니다.

    Q : ‘형사’역을 위해 어떤 준비를 했는지? 
    How did you prepare to play a “detective” role?

    A : 사실 제가 지금까지 맡아왔던 그런 캐릭터하고는 좀,, 많이 상반된 역할이라,,,걱정도 많이 되구요. 그만큼 더 준비도 많이 했습니다.기대하셔도 좋을 것 같습니다.

    I have no special concern. As for the cold weather, well, I can get over it with my patience….The key point is how much I accomplish my role.It depends on how I perform the role CID detective Park Se-Hyuk by myself. If I perform my role perfectly it will be a great success.

    KBS 2TV drama “Detectives in Trouble” hero Song Il-gook is happy to hear good comments about his act as a detective.

    Song Il-gook watched the first episode of the drama with the cast, the

    staff and the production team in the KBS building on the 7th. Later, at an

    interview, he was asked the question, “How do you feel after watching

    the first episode?”. He laughed and said, “While watching the drama, the

    detective who actually helped me sent a text saying, ‘It’s so real, it’s

    amazing. Fighting!’ so I felt really good”….

  34. 34 : Ali Says:

    A follow up to “Dream High”, the new “Detectives in Trouble” started off with a poor number and marked an unsteady start.

    According to the AGB Nielson Media Research on the 8th, KBS 2TV drama “Detectives in Trouble” recorded 8.0% on the 7th and came last place among other dramas that were aired at the same time

  45. 45 : kimchilee Says:

    watched Ep.1 and 2.. sad to say.. it’s rather disappointing and story is not captivating enough to hold my attention. There are some plots which made the police so stupid.. how can you go into a killer’s house using torchlights even though its dark at night?? Oh I forgot, they are just detectives with no night binoculars.. the killer will run 1000 miles away the moment it sees the light shining all over his house!!!

    It is made worst by the poor over the board acting of the 2 gays who are the bosses of Min Ju.. shock.com agency.. it shocked me alright ..they annoyed me to the brink of switching off the whole drama. The only reason why i grit my teeth to watch it was due to SIG, Lee Jung Hyuk and Sun Woo Sun.. which made me wonder why Woo Sun was not the lead actress.. suits SIG better.. let’s hope the following Episodes are watchable and get more exciting as it progresses..

    Sorry SIG.. let’s hope the storyline gets more better and not like watching another AMCG! and sorry SIGers.. this is just my opinion of the DRAMA.. and its only Episodes 1 & 2..!! :)

    I agree with kimchilee @45:
    I watch cos of Song IG. There is a lot of action n camera angles, it makes me dizzy. There r many cases going on; u can’t focus your attention or interest on any one. The lead actress playing the reporter is fine. But the show doesn’t stay on any one person long enough for u to care. I’ve watched 3 eps n that required much patience. No more!
    The gay boss is neither funny nor endearing. That portrayal of a gay person must be an insult to gays!

    Song Ji Hyo Back to Small Screen 😉

    after 4 Years with ‘Crime Squad’

    3-

    Song Il-kook explained that he took the role because he wanted to work with Kim Seung-woo, and if these guys have any chemistry together, it could be fantastic to see them clashing and playing off each other. On the other hand, the PD-writer creds have me a little worried, since Kwon Kye-hong last directed the convoluted melodrama Bad Love… and that inspires very little confidence. I can’t find much info on the two writers, which inspires even less confidence. No, wait, I think Bad Love still trumps inexperience

    Not pictured here are two of the ladies, Park Sun-young (Sons of Sol Pharmacy) and Song Ji-hyo (currently appearing in the variety show Running Man). Song plays a reporter intern, a character that the actress describes as “very bright and strong-willed.” After a run-in with Song Il-kook’s character (with whom Song reunites after acting together in the hit sageuk Jumong), she accompanies him to the scene of the crime and nabs a story, and afterward, they continue to cross each other’s paths in unexpected ways.

    Meet the cops of KBS’s Crime Squad

    1-

    Following teen idol drama Dream High, we have the more serious crime drama titled, appropriately enough, Crime Squad. Below are shots from the drama’s poster shoot earlier this week, featuring its cast of cops.

    The drama stars Kim Seung-woo (IRIS) and Song Il-kook (A Man Called God), each of whom embody two very differing working styles. Kim Seung-woo plays a cold, clean-cut, buttoned-up police chief, while Song Il-kook is decidedly scruffier as the hotheaded cop. (After seeing the latter playing sageuk kings and sleek modern badasses, I have to say I really like him rumpled-up and sporting some ‘tude.)

    The other cast members include (below, from left to right) T-Max rapper Kim Joon (returning to the acting scene after his debut in the hit teen drama Boys Before Flowers), Sunwoo Sun (Will It Snow For Christmas), and Jang Hang-sun (Baker King Kim Tak-gu).

    I think I might just watch. Looks different and interesting.

    ———————————————————

    Photos of Song Il Gook and Sung Ji Roo at the set of KBS drama “Crime Squad” was released. The two of them are longtime friends in the drama and they frequently make viewers laugh with their surprising synergy.

    With the quick story development and famous cases as the main plot of the drama, Crime Squad is being loved by many fans who are almost manias of Crime Squad. The photos, however, were the complete opposite to the mood on the set, creating laughter all over the set.

    All that they did was just make the same faces at the camera to have fun in the small break that they got while filming but the faces were just the complete opposite from the concept of “Crime Squad.”

    Song Il Gook said “Just like how he is in the drama, Sung Ji Roo gives me so much support and I always look to him when I need help for a scene. There’s a lot of scenes where he takes care of me in the drama and Sung Ji Roo is warm and comfortable just like Detective Nam.”

    Sung Ji Roo said “One of the people I see everyday is Il Gook so whenever I don’t get to see him, I’m sort of disappointed. Since filming the drama is a test of endurance, many actors on the set rely on each other. I feel as if we are all just like the detectives in the dramas, helping each other out.”

    This series is beautifully choreographed and it features best action

    sequences, great actors, and amazing production, with fabulous music

    that provides a soundtrack for all… this series synthesis of picture and

    sound proves not only an achievement in action films but also in Korean

    entertainment industry

    He has started a new career in acting and he will take the role of insurance agent Alex Lee. He has already filmed a few scenes with Song Ji Hyo and everything went smoothly.

    Yoo Ho Suk was able to make short work of a very difficult and long line and the staff was surprised at how smooth he was with his acting.

    One representative said “It will be very interesting to see how Yoo Ho Suk will grow as an actor with Crime Squad as the introduction to his acting career. The first character he meets as the insurance agent is the news reporter Min Ju and I think viewers can look forward to that scene.”

    Yoo Ho Suk said “I am very happy to join Crime Squad. Whenever I am at the set, everyone is so friendly and helpful so I learn a lot from them. I will try very hard to not ruin the drama.”

    Song Il Gook “Me and Song Ji Hyo Promised to Enter the Triathlon”
    dongie – March 24, 2011, 9:05 pm
    ———————————————- :)

    Actor Song Il Gook revealed that he will compete in the triathlon with an actress of Crime Squad, Song Ji Hyo.

    Song Il Gook appeared for a press conference regarding the drama, Crime Squad on the 23rd. The press conference happened at the filming set of Crime Squad and he said that “once the drama is over, Song Ji Hyo and I will compete in the triathlon.”

    “We pinky promised tho train for it and compete in ti together after the filming for Crime Squad was over.”

    “I talked it over with Song Ji Hyo and I think we can already go out to triathlon. She says she swims for 30 minutes every day and that technically is more than enough. Anyone can enter as long as they can swim and ride a bike.”

    Song Il Gook is known for entering the triathlon, which is a race with running, cycling, and swimming, every year.

    The drama Crime Squad is about solving crimes and the story that each cop has within the team.

    The crimes used in the dramas are based off true crimes that occurred in Korea, which makes the viewers become more familiar with the cases and absorb into the drama even more.

    Crime Squad Song Il Gook, “I Would be Lying if I said I Didn’t Pay Attention to Viewer Ratings”by dongie – March 24, 2011, 9:07 pm :D:

    Actor Song Il Gook said that he does not read the articles about the viewer ratings so that he won’t know about what the ratings are.

    Song Il Gook came out in a press conference for Crime Squad and said “I would be lying if I said I don’t care about viewer ratings.”

    He was asked “you probably are disappointed by the viewer ratings since the work before this was a big hit” and he said “Well yes.”

    Crime Squad aired its first episode on the 7th and is still recording only 1 digit percentage numbers.

    He said “I try not to care about the ratings as much as I can. Whenever I wake up, I don’t check for articles dealing with the viewer ratings and just leave for the set.”

    He also encouraged views by saying that “the drama deals with many cases so viewers don’t have to watch since the beginning to know what is going on.” 😆

    http://www.askactor.com/gossip/Will-There_Be_Crime_Squad_Season_2-
    The cast of KBS drama Crime Squad have expressed their excitement for Crime Squad Season 2. The police investigation drama Crime Squad was designed to be a drama with multiple seasons.

    During a filming of one episode, Song Il Gook said “I think the director is thinking about future seasons and is pay extra attention to the character development. I think this is why there were a lot more romance scenes than necessary.”

    When will Crime Squad be able to stop their struggles with its one digit viewer ratings? The cast believe that the investigation dramas are on the rise and Crime Squad will ride that effect soon.

    Song Il Gook said that the drama features a new case every 2 weeks and so viewers have an easier time to watch from the middle of the season.

    Lee Jong Hyuk said “people around me say that the drama becomes more and more interesting as the episodes go on. The finished episodes are much more fun to watch than reading the script.”

    The drama is set to experience some character changes and will start to go through cases more speedily.

    Sung Ji Roo said “Since the first few episodes focused more on character development, the next 10 episodes will be mostly on the cases itself. To help with this, we added one additional script writer. The base has been laid, all that is left is to build up.” 😉

    Detectives in Trouble’ Draws More Praise

    The KBS2 Monday-Tuesday drama “Detectives in Trouble” is receiving rave reviews with its thrilling storyline.

    The April 4 episode dealt with a case where a woman being educated at her company’s training center went missing. The investigation team was given only 24 hours to find the woman amid unclear criminal intent, inconsistent clues, and a fierce war of nerves with a suspect.
    The team showed perfect teamwork under a new chief, Lim Gyeong-eun (Kim Sun-kyung).

    Viewers expressed their excitement, saying, “It’s so intriguing that I lost track of time,” “I couldn’t guess who committed the crime until the end,” and “It’s so exciting and thrilling.” A production staffer said, “Since the show is a crime drama, all the cast and crew are taking extra care to make the storyline convincing through their performances. We will keep up our efforts to produce a well-made drama.”

    The show is expected to become more thrilling with its realistic story about crimes cases and detectives struggling to resolve them.

    * Song Ji Hyo Shows Enthusiastic Acting in ‘Detectives in Trouble’ *

    Actress Song Ji Hyo, who is playing a reckless and dogged news reporter named Cho Min Joo in KBS’s Monday and Tuesday drama “Detectives in Trouble,” participated in filming a very dangerous scene in which she had to hang down from a rooftop without utilizing a stunt actress, and her enthusiastic acting has drawn attention. In the 10th episode of the drama that aired on April 5, Cho Min Joo fell into a dangerous situation and had to hold on to the rail on a rooftop, and actress Song Ji Hyo actually presented impassioned acting by filming the scene without using a stunt actress while connecting herself to wire equipment.

    A staff member of “Detectives in Trouble” said, “Song Ji Hyo decided to film the scene personally after having a discussion with staff members. Song Ji Hyo performed magnificent acting while filming the scene and presented a very nice scene that was well done enough to garner an ovation from staff members on the set after finishing filming the scene.” Many people near the set were reportedly watching her with pounding hearts, as an actress was participating in filming a very dangerous scene. Song Ji Hyo said, “At first, I was also very scared because I had to hang on at a high place, but I could finish the scene safely because I was equipped with a safety wire and many people helped me. I monitored my acting after filming the scene and I came to have the thought that it was very good that I personally acted in the scene. I just desire many viewers to enjoy the scene.”

    The scene in which Song Ji Hyo acted enthusiastically was broadcast in the 10th episode that aired on April 5.

    dongie – April 9, 2011, 2:09 am

    Song Il Gook transformed into a warm and caring detective who looks like

    he doesn’t care at all in KBS 2 TV’s drama “Crime Squad.” This warm

    character is attracting lot of attention from the female viewers. Song Il

    Gook is detective Park Se Hyuk in Crime Squad, who is very wild and

    unpredictable. Park Se Hyuk is very easy to anger since he has a dark

    past of losing his young daughter, and so can be regarded as a time

    bomb that can explode any moment. His looks along with his vintage

    fashion is quickly becoming a hot trend. Song Il Gook is approaching the

    viewers with a very comfortable and friendly image in “Crime Squad.” He

    sleeps at the police station, runs into fieldwork with messed up hair and

    clothes he wore the day before, takes care of his meals with ramen, and

    gets carried home because he got drunk. The general census is that he is

    way too easy to understand and so the viewers have an easier time liking

    him. Song Il Gook’s expressions also lets the viewers know exactly what

    he is feeling at the moment. At times, he is the fearless detective, others

    , he is just another father who misses her daughter, and he also is the ex

    husband of a woman he loved. Whenever he sees his ex-wife, he has thi

    s bitter yet longing expression, which makes the viewers feel just as sad.

    The tone that Park Se Hyuk speaks with may seem a little too rude or

    ignorant, but there are hidden feelings behind the words he speaks. After

    the dangerous r
    … more

  66. 66 : OK OK OK Says:

    I like to watch Song Il Gook act but stop at episodes 2 because I cannot stand the lead actress makeup and hair style. Her hair was so dark and thick. Makes her looks so heavy. Why can’t the makeup team makes her eyes more sparkling & attractive with mascara (even though she has big eyes)

    (SungkyunKwan Scandal – the lead actress has to disguise as a man to study in the boys school, she even do up her eye makeup to make herself look attractive & pleasing to the audience) :)

    Even Song Ji Hyo has to be plain Jane in this drama – her hair style & makeup really don’t suits her. It doesn’t make her attractive at all. :(

  67. 67 : tess Says:

    OK,OK,OK, I agree with you. Song Ji Hyo has to wear plain and simple clothes. She is supposed to be a poor and newbie reporter in this drama. Her character here is also annoying always following SIK and meddling with the police investigations. But of course, we have to consider her fans who are looking forward for her romantic affair with Song Il Kook. I was even outcasted from Soompi Crime Squad Thread and even from Song Il Kook’s thread, wherein I have been a member for almost four years just because I posted negative comments about Song Ji Hyo and her character in the drama. They even accused me of bashing SIK’s drama and made me the bad guy in the forum. I hope people in this thread are not also narrow-minded.

    But my only consolation is Song Il Kook and the other detectives who are very effective in their roles. I would suggest that you continue watching the drama and focus more on the crimes being featured every two episodes. There are only two episodes left and it’s over.

  68. 68 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ 67 Tess

    Yes, I agree with you. If any of the lead actor’s actress’s character is annoying or not charming, I will loose interest in continuing the drama too.
    Even Song Ji Hyo has to wear plain & simple clothes, there is no excuse for her not to have nice hairstyle & attractive eyes with mascara & nice makeup etc..

    For me to watch a drama, number 1 factors – both leads must have the X factors to attract follow by the story line.

    If one of the lead star does not has the “X” factor to attract, no matter how I tried, I won’t be enjoying the show at all even how good the story is.
    Why make myself stress. There are still many other drama to choose from. If they want us to watch their production, then please take our comments seriously. We are NOT here to criticize but feedback on what we see and how we feel – so they can improve it. :)

    So for this drama Crime Squad I will not be watching – base on my comments @66

  69. 69 : Ra Says:

    Hi tess ! its me zeeIraqiya from soompi ! how r u dear ! in fact am a little busy these days but im really wanna watch this drama i adore sig as u know ! BUT THE MATTER THATS PREVENTED ME FROM NOT WATCHING THIS DRAMA TILL NOW IS THE MEAN ACTRESS ! really im afraid that i have to watch another “JIN BO BAE” of A a man called God drama! and inaddition to that im a big SOSEONO ‘ fan and really i cant handle to watch that girl to be sig’s girl ! yes i know its nonsense but really i cant ! :sad: But i will try to overcome that feeling !!!

  70. 70 : tess Says:

    You’re right guys. When we make negative comments about a drama, it doesn’t mean we want to ruin or bash it. We just want the production team to hear our voice and make some improvement on the storyline or the whole production itself. The poor ratings should also serve as a wake up call for the team to find out where did they go wrong.

    I guess, only fans of the casts are watching the drama. It’s almost over and the ratings do not show a lot of improvement. Not much on the romantic scenes, too.

    RA, watch this. Actually, SIK has no romantic scenes with SJH. No matter how the writers try to build a romance between them, they just don’t click. But SIK and Kim Joon are so cute and adorable here. They are worth watching.

    Today is the last episode. I hope for more surprises and twist on the lives of the detectives.

  71. 71 : Ra Says:

    tess i get your point … but really dont you think that in all recent drama of sig like A man called God for example SIG has no problem with his performance and when ever he found a weakness he used to fixed it soon you know how he fixed his character after epis 13 BUT i can say that there is really a problem in the lead actress i don’t know why Korean writes and directors insist to make her character that weak and most likely going to be fool! and that would make no balance between main two characters, in fact we r living in a world where girls r soooo intelligent thats why i loved the character of Soseono in Jumong drama as she was a fighter , smart with strong personality Sometime in some scenes her personalty covered jumong himself ! WE NEED SUCH KIND OF CHARACTERS TO MAKE THE BALANCE THAT I TALKED ABOUT AND FOR SURE THAT WOULD MADE DRAMA stick in mind and stay for ever

  72. 72 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ Tess & Ra

    I like smart guys & smart girls or cute guys cute girls (adorable with X Factors). I like Sassy girl choonhyang (i am not bored to repeat the show again & again) becoz both leads are smart & Jae Hee is one of my fav actor. :)

    I gave up the drama – That Fool acted by Kim Ah Joong becoz i cannot stand the lead actor being “not smart” even how good his heart is & also he is not cute.

    I watch Kim Ah Joong in SIGN becoz both leads (Park Shin Yang – a very gd actor) is very smart here except the last episode -the scriptwriter makes him “stupid” – Many fans caught by surprise — ha ha :)

    My sis ever mention to me that in Crime Squad – the lead actress Song Ji Hyo’s character is irritating but she still continue to watch becoz she like Song Il Gook very much. I hope i can close 1 eye like her but i can’t. :)

  73. 73 : tess Says:

    RA, the drama has ended without any romantic development between SIK and Song Ji Hyo. They are not compatible and looks like a brother/sister relationship. Or I would say daughter/father relationship. They made Min Jo (Song Ji Hyo) a very childish reporter who is longing for a love from his long lost father and even told Park Se (song Il Kook) that she looked upon him as a father. Park Se, on the other hand, missed his dead daughter. She called him “Ahjussi”.

    I could not understand why the writers somehow changed the plot. This drama was earlier advertised as a detective story with SIK, Song Ji Hyo and Kim Joon involving in a love triangle. Then it turned out eventually that it was a love triangle between Lee Jung Hyuk, Park Sun Young and Song Il Kook. So complicated. The drama ended with so many questions from me. Definitely, no romance or kiss. Just simple/short hugs. I was longing for the look in SIK’s eyes, full of love and yearning. The looks that made me love him in Jumong and Emperor of the Sea.

  74. 74 : tess Says:

    OK OK OK,

    I don’t like stupid and clumsy female lead, too. In SIK’s previous drama, A Man Called God, SIK’s leading lady is a clumsy reporter, too. and she made me sick. So irritating. Now, it happened again. SIK has always been looked upon as being a strong, caring and protective leading man. But as we know, even in real life, man like this is more attracted to a smart woman, who is always behind his success. In my opinion, and from the other comments that I’ve read, even from Song Ji Hyo’s fans, the reason this drama did not rate so high, was the annoying character of his leading lady.

    Again, it’s not the actress, personally, but the character the writers made her to portray that’s irritating. I was hoping at the start that she become a more mature, strong reporter, who could also fire gun and fight off bad guys, or bad girls, at least. She should also be dressed in plain clothes ready for action, since she always wanted to tag along with Detective Park Se in his investigations, even with his encounters with the bad guys. The irony of it was she was not a criminal reporter. She worked at Shocking.com, who tackles gossips about celebrities. Funny but she’s more involved in crimes.

    My poor SIK. He has to suffer the consequences of the poor ratings and negative comments/feedback from this drama. He has done his best and performed his role with utmost reality and finesse.

  75. 75 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ Tess
    A Man called God – I also stop at ep 4. I also could not stand the lead actress Han Chae Young character even she is one of my fav actress but my sis again said not bad (becoz got SIG) ha ha :)

    Presently watching 49 days, Shining, New Tales of Gisaeng.

    My another sis said that Crime Squad story line not bad if you just ignore the “leading female character”

    Lead actors & actresses – I think they got no choice in choosing who they want to act with — they just have to perform what is written. Hope SIG got better partner & “smart script” next round. :)

  76. 76 : Ra Says:

    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..

  77. 77 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ Ra

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

  78. 78 : tess Says:

    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.
