This drama is about the battle between detectives who try to reveal the truth and those who frequently cover it up.

Set in Incheon, South Korea, detectives try to catch criminals, who hide ugly truths. Kang Do Chang (Son Hyun Joo) has worked as a detective for the past 18 years. He was born and raised in Incheon. He investigates cases using his experience and personal connections, forgoing scientific technique or reasoning power. Meanwhile, Oh Ji Hyuk (Jang Seung Jo) is an elite detective. He has 9 years of experience. Unlike Kang Do Chang, he investigates cases using evidence and insight into the criminal’s psyche. Due to trauma from his childhood, he does not share his feelings. He is wealthy thanks to his late uncle, who left him with a large inheritance. Jin Seo Kyung (Lee Elliya) works as a newspaper reporter. She is a 5 year veteran and passionate about her work.

  1. 1 : zieda Says:

    thank you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24zgTqFnLVc

  2. 2 : Ida Says:

    Aku dah nonton 2 eps, bagus dramanya. Cowok banget. Ceritanya lebih realistis.

  3. 3 : aafa83 Says:

    This was a really good drama! Worth a watch.

  4. 4 : Mona Says:

    I really enjoy watching this drama, i’m on ep 14 btw, closer to the end. I love the cast also.

  5. 5 : tigerb Says:

    it’s a very good watch for a law enforcement drama. i decided on it because i admire the work of the leading actor and glad that i did. the script was good, cases tied up one way or the other, nothing round about, and included light laughs to break the seriousness.

  6. 6 : mslatipah Says:

    Good acting from leading actors. A simple story line.

  7. 7 : Stranger Says:

    definitely a must watch drama..good storyline..realistic and casting was great! i just watch n attached to it..so satisfying when one good person behavior could influence others to change..good deeds will never be forgotten n keep other people continue to do so! be good to others!!

  8. 8 : Chips Says:

    Have finished watching 9. Looking forward to ep10.

    This detective drama gives off a kind of warm homey feeling, so much so that it grows on you. And every week we look forward to coming episodes.

    I have still not gotten over Reporter Jin Seo Kyung’s selfish act of not submitting a critical piece of clue to the court that could have saved a death row inmate’s life. Her selfish act took me by surprise. Too late that she is now regretting it.

    I hope she will realise her mistake and from now on, be more committed to her principles as a reporter.

    One scene in drama that I like to see very much is when wealthy police officer Oh Ji Hyuk dishes out money when a need arises. Its a fantasy come true. And everytime when it happens, he is so cool about it. The dream of many – pulling out money from a rabbit hat. Hahaha !

    Have a good day !! 🙂
