A brain surgery during childhood caused prosecutor Hwang Shi Mok to lack emotion, even though he is rational. Cold and lonely, he's one of the only prosecutors not involved in corruption. He then meets Police Lieutenant Han Yeo Jin at a murder crime scene and they work together to eradicate corruption at the prosecutor's office and solve a serial murder case.

saya suka sekali alur ceritanya karena susah di tebak dan itu membuat saya tidak bosan menonton drama ini. akting para pemerannya juga sangat bagus terutama pemeran utamanya.

recommended banget deh ♥

Both have corruption in law enforcement.
Pride and Prejudice: is faster moving with more action. The prosecutor trying to uncover the man who cover up the murder of her younger brother. She believes it could only have been done by a fellow prosecutor. Eventually she gets help from co-workers to solve this case after realizing it is connected to a couple of other cases that have come across their desks.
Stranger: is developing the story a little more slowly. One cop and one prosecutor work together after realizing they have no one in their own departments to trust. The case that brings them together may be related to higher ups in both of their departments. The prosecutor is unable to feel emotion and is balanced out by the cop who is motivated by her feelings of sympathy for the victims and victims families.

    I've been waiting for something like this. Though I love OCN, this is blowing Duel out of the water for me. Also, can we talk about how hot Pros. Hwang Shi Mok is?! I'm in love.

    I really love how calm and quiet Shi Mok is. It's very relaxing to watch despite the twists, suspense and cliffhangers, thanks to him. I'm really loving this drama.

      it aired 4 eps already, no romance involved so far. but as i can perceive it, i dont think there will be... and if there will eventually be, i think it will come at the right pace^^

      I guarantee you that romance isn't even necessary in this drama, instead the two leads form a perfect duo <3 intelligence and class are the key words of their relationship

    I'm starting to suspect everyone, I even imagined a theory where Shi Mok has schizophrenia and commited those crimes himself ( yes this drama is driving me crazy hahz)

    why do they even bother blurring wounds in this show, it's not like everything else here is rainbows and unicorns...

      because of media rules & regulations in korea. lot of restrictions are there with korean media. simply u are not allowed to show a Knife in a violence scene

      I know about it, but it's still an absurdly literal regulation disregarding the context of the whole drama. A staged corpse or a pool of blood is ok to see, but knife in it isn't. I'm just not getting how is one or two pointy objects this or that way any more traumatising than the whole stuffy atmosphere in the prosecutor office. I could understand blurring potential triggers in a daytime show, but this has age appropriate marks and airs in the evening.

    do you ever get that feeling in your stomach? when the suspense is too good and you are about to faint from excitement.
    And the leads are so beautiful #love love love

    Every new episode is perfection. Also, I need the whole drama series to be released right now because I might die due to the suspense.
