Have you watched a drama that you want to know how it ends but you don't want it to end because if it ends, you wouldn't find anything equivalent to this? Well look no more. The story of this drama is one of a kind not the regular thief and criminal, cat and mouse hunt. If you're tired of the gooey romance and the common love triangles, and you want something more read more substantial go for it because this deserves all the praises it can get.

Story : the story is almost flawless and fast paced enough that there isn't a single episode that wouldn't give you a high. The twists and turns that happen are almost realistic and you will find yourself getting slipped into the story.

Acting : Ma Dong Seok and Seo In Gook. DO i need say more? the characters in the drama are played so well, you start believing in them. They take you a roller coaster ride and they do it well!!

I dont write reviews normally. But for this drama, I had to :D ! Probably one of the best I have watched till date. The writer keeps you on hook until the end. Twistception at its finest. You wont be able to predict anything, trust me ! Not to mention, each of the characters have a special spot in my heart now. Of course, this is only due to the spectacular acting read more by the stellar cast. Seo In Guk and Ma Dong Seok stole the show :) With shows like these though, re-watch might not be as great an experience as when you watched it the first time. So with a very heavy heart, I say goodbye to these wonderful characters but with the hope that one day I would have forgotten the story enough to return back to it again.

They share similar topic, showcasing the work of a seemingly un-sexy state departments: an anti-corruption supersquad dealings (In The Name of People) and fighting against tax evaders (38 Task Force). 38TF takes a lighter, comedic route with dark undertones and formula known from heist movies, while ITNOP is very serious and matter of factly. Big money and politics involved.
Think White Collar / House of Cards.

both are about fraud who become mr righteous by helping people in need, but Chief Kim is funnier

    This is a nice hidden gem, that I wished more people would watch. The cons were daring and I was always surprised as to how they would pull them off. VERY Ocean's 11. But THE best part for me comes at the very end (i'm talking ab the last 2 minutes) when a surprise character from another OCN drama makes an appearance. I'm sure it was just a nod to Bad Guys rather than a true link from one show to another, but I still fan-girled for a solid 20 minutes afterward!!!

    I'm really glad I gave this drama a chance. It turned out to be a really fun show to watch! So many twists and turns. It never became boring. I could easily watch multiple seasons of this.

    Do the leads in this show solve different cases or only one case is solved throughout the series?

      Different cases. I guess you could also see it as one case but it's one case that develops throughout the drama

      Different cases which were related to each other.

    i dun understand why this drama is only rated 8.3 when that overrated goblin get a 9.3, it means that most of female (probably about 70%) who watch k-drama prefer something that is poorly written with a lot of non-sense and lot of cheesy romance.

    i've just finished it and this drama kept it's quality till the very last scene, props to whole staff/actors/writers/directors for making this awesome drama possible,
    wish it had more exposure internationally so that koreans could get out of the makjang/love/chaebol triangle
    cable channels are really doing a good job paving the way, hoping that national channels will follow it soon

    i'm at episode 11 and this drama is really lit, i thought con thing would get repetitive but thank god writer had a solid base to work with, so even though things seem a bit obvious from now on it is unlikely that drama will loose it's flow
