Synopsis

The drama will be about prosecutors high-up in the supreme court. A chief investigative prosecutor finds out he has six months left to live, and on the other side is a prosecutor general who’s neck-deep in corruption.

Park Jung Hwan (Kim Rae Won) is the chief of the anticorruption investigation team for the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office. To get to his position, he has made compromises on achieving justice. He then learns that he has a malignant brain tumor and does not have much time to left. To end his life without regrets, he points a gun at corrupt Public Prosecutor General Lee Tae Joon (Jo Jae Hyun).

Meanwhile, Park Jung Hwan’s ex-wife Shin Ha Kyung (Kim Ah Joong) is a prosecutor who has refused extremely high-paying jobs at large firms, and instead fights for justice. She knows about Park Jung Hwan’s situation and helps him.

    this is a good watch but i procrastinated to finish watching this series since i could predict what would happen in the end. i got tired of how the story went. the writer prolonged and lengthened the number of episodes, which made me feel like am i stupid for watching the endless times the rug is being pulled under from the unconscionable public officials in the justice department who kept on threatening each other with the knowledge of past corrupt acts and mistakes? it can get boring so i had to pause as there were other interesting dramas to watch. it was dramatic that jung hwan’s heart was transplanted to his wife who he believed would bring down the people who hurt him and his family. the thing that made me finish the series is cast’s good acting, and found a very good actor in kim rae won.

    what did jung hwan say? there are no right answers in life only choices (at least that is what i read in the sub-titles). that’s a perspective which anyone can challenge.

    i have this Disc since few months ago but kept on prolonging when a new CD starring my other idols come out. But when i started watching it last week, gosh i stayed glued in the TV till late night. The scenes are terrific, makes you want to see the rest of the story. Very interesting, no boring scenes. I still hope for miracles for Jung hwan.
