Choi Yeong Jin is a female detective squad chief. She also raises her daughter Ha Eun. At work, she deals with brutal crimes with her senior detective Park Jong Ho and squad members Min Do Yeong, Han Jin Woo, Jo Jae Deok and Lee Se Won.
If you are looking for a great procedural crime drama - this one hits all the marks. Complex storyline of single female balancing home, work, kid, and sister with crime ridden workload to make you come unhinged.
Story: not new- another greedy, corrupt chaebols, cops and politicians who kill at random for power & $$. Set that against a justice driven female officer and kick-a@$ team who need to rid Korea of read morethe corruptness. The storyline is full of twist, turns and complexity giving viewers a great ride.
Cast - strong, yet not overbearing. Well selected.
Music - well placed and fit the drama
Watch again? Probably not - nature of crime drama...
Most impressive was finally seeing a drama with a strong mature female lead who was not shackled by candy girl or lost identity or suffering low self confidence. This crime drama was about balance, family, and justice revenge.
side note: this villain was awesome, brilliant and crazy!
I have to say this was one daebak drama! You won't want to miss it! One police drama where I actually believe they are real cops! It's realistic and action packed, the criminals they chase and catch are some pretty horrible people played by awesome actors. The action scenes were all on point and completely believable - I loved watching three of the team members in particular fight - they were GOOD! read moreKim Hee Ae as Choi Young Jin was great as the team leader - she puts her whole heart and soul into her job and doesn't give up. Her family life outside of work is very sweet, her little daughter is adorable at both ages. and her sister was perfect in her role. And I loved how her friend/co-worker played by Kim Min Jung would pursue her ^^ Their scenes were always humorous :) Min Do Yeong (Lee Da Hee) was awesome in this role (I truly think she should continue to do more of these kinds of roles - it really suits her) she was stubborn and "gangster like" after she joins this team lol. Han Jin Woo (Son Ho Jun) was someone who was made into a real person b/c of Young Jin bringing him to the team - the scenes between him and Do Yeong were sweet and action filled and in the end they will leave you breathless ;) Lee Ki Kwang as the cutie of the team and his buddy Heo Jeong Do were a hilarious duo ^^ Son Byung Ho (as Chairman Kang) was definitely hateful - luckily I never got stirred up - I was actually amazed with how clever he could be in a dirty way - I hated the dude and wanted him to go down - he just never raised my blood pressure lol (and I have to say that would be due to the writer director and everyone else who put this together in such an amazing way) I could sit back and watch this thinking "daebak" all the time lol
Music - suited the drama, I don't remember hearing any particular song though - I only remember hearing instrumentals.
This is definitely a drama I will re-watch and I highly recommend it - If you're a fan of crime dramas, then this is one you won't want to miss! I absolutely loved this drama! I became a fan of a few of the actors through this drama ;)
1. Both dramas deal with crime and investigation
2. In both exist corrupt officials who are willing to do anything for money, position/power
3. Villains in both dramas develop twisted personalities bec of how they were raised by their father
Personally, I enjoyed both of these dramas, they both kept me interested and both have amazing casts in which you'll love the protagonist and really hate the villains to their bones!
Not only does the main female protagonist care deeply for their child, they both feel deeply to bring justice to the world and shut criminals away. They also have their detective male leads who would rather run to their side than chase after a criminal.
im so happy that i came back for this. i actually drop this after 2 episodes because of some not so smart decisions of the MC. but starting episode 4 things really started to get better and just keeps getting better. One of those few police dramas that gave me satisfying feeling right after they solve a case. also great character development for some of the cast. and the ending, one of the best! a solid 9/10 for me.
What a great surprise this was! I enjoyed every second of this drama and that's why I couldn't gave it lower than 9.
First of all, acting was a top notch! KHA and LDH stole the show. They were such a badass females and as you know I adore when a female lead is a strong one, so that is one big, big plus for me. KHA being a detective dealing with evil and dangerous villains and at the same time a mother is not easily, but she made her role feel alive. I enjoyed in her character, a lot.
I've never paid some attention to LDH, but in this one she totally won me over. Min Do Young was such an awesome character, fearless, badass and loyal. Plus, LDH's acting felt really professional to me, it's like she totally got into this role and that's what made me now love her. I wish she do more dramas now. ;) kKMJ and SHJ were perfect detectives. ♥
One of the best detectives' stories this year, full of thrilling, cliffhanger and AWESOME characters! I truly enjoyed it, to be remember for. ;)
