Awful! This was billed as a comedy, but was not remotely funny. Opennig with one man being run through with a sword and another being decapitated by two swords, this was very different to the first one. The first one had a serious edge, but managed to include some lgiht farce and genuine laugh out loud moments. This was all dark,.all the tmie. The few moments intended as comic relief were just read more pale rehashes of scenes from the first. VERY disappointing.

    In the 19th year of Jeonjo’s reign, Kim Min, Joseon’s top detective, who used to be a King’s secret messenger, has been banished to a remote island for some unclear reasons. The only visitors are his old partner, Seo-pil and a young girl, who comes every day to ask him to find her younger sibling. In the meantime, Kim Min happens to hear a rumor that bogus silver bars have been being distributed, which awakens his dormant traits as a detective. He finally makes a bold decision to escape the island and moves on to investigate the case of bogus silver bars fully and to find the young girl’s younger sibling. Joseon’s top detective, Kim Min and Seo-pil may be the first detectives in the history, who stepped up to solve two different cases at the same time! But Hisako, a beautiful, mysterious woman with her identity unknown, continuously interferes the investigation conducted by this excellent pair of detectives. Kim Min and Seo-pil, the excellent pair of Joseon’s top detectives return.
