Eun Dae Gu, Uh Soo Sun, Park Tae Il and Ji Gook - otherwise known as the P4 - are the new recruits in the violent crime unit at Gangnam Police Station. These rookies are neither enthusiastic, nor passionate about their new jobs and have joined the crime squad for varying but unbefitting reasons. They are lead by an erratic and hot headed Seo Pan Suk who wants nothing more than to read morewash his hand off of the incompetent new recruits.

Sequel??? I hope so. This drama has a fresh story line. It has almost anything a person could want in a drama. It has suspense, romance, comedy, action, and a bit of melodrama. The chemistry between the actors is excellent. There is consistent character development. The writing and directing is so well done. The best part is that I enjoyed each and every episode. That has been hard to find this year read more in dramaland.

All of the acting was good. I will just point out a few things. Love him or hate him (I happen to love him), Lee Seung Gi can kiss. I had no idea that Go Ah Ra that plays Na Jung in Reply 1994 was the same person as Eu Soo Sun. She just shot up the ranks of actress that I like. I love Cha Seung Won's dorky characters. He is just too cute. Is Jeong Dong Hwan going to play freakishly scary characters in every drama from now on? He seriously gives me the creeps when he does that smile. BBBRRR!!!

The music is appropriate and sometimes funny.

I will rewatch this at some point. I'm tempted to rewatch it right now. Seriously.

I highly recommend this drama.

This. This is it. This drama. This freaking drama is everything I've ever wanted to see. And never in my life did I think that I would end up loving a cop drama. But I did. And I'm so happy I gave this drama a chance because now it's one of my favourites.

The plot is the biggest advantage of this drama. It's a perfect mix of action, suspense, crime, drama, and read more even comedy and romance. What more could you want? And although I admit I got bored sometimes, the boredom didn't last long. There's always something happening in this drama, and numerous plot twists make everything even more exciting, interesting, and fun to watch. The pace of story development is also perfect, thanks to what it's pretty easy to follow the plot without any headaches. The romance between Dae Gu and Su Seon isn't cheesy and immature, so thank God there aren't any cringe worthy moments between those characters.
Seriously, if only more dramas were like that, I'm sure I wouldn't end up hating so many of them.

The cast is really well-chosen, so there's no surprise that the acting is one of the best I've seen so far. There are no awkward facial expressions or gestures, and the actors express the characters' feelings in a good, believable way. Only An Jae Hyeon's acting skills lack sometimes, but most of the time he isn't even that bad. So good job.

All of the main characters are likeable, which is kind of surprising considering that most dramas have many annoying characters. To be honest I was expecting Su Seon to be irritating, as almost every main female leads in dramas are, so imagine my surprise when I didn't end up hating her. And as you can learn from my other reviews, most of the time I hate main female characters. Also, I love how each character is different and special in a way. Thanks to that every character can add something new to the story.

This drama has its little flaws, but they're not very significant. I think the biggest flaw of "You're All Surrounded" is that a few of the last episodes are a little bit of a drag, but fortunately at episode 19 everything goes back to normal.

Overall, even if you don't like cop dramas, I suggest you give this one a chance. "You're All Surrounded" is something fresh, has an actual plot, and doesn't kill viewers with a cheesy romance. Seriously, we need more dramas like this one.

Both are investigative and have some romance, this one takes place mostly in an airport though.

Crimes, mysteries, with leading couple getting close from 'we know each other' to 'we're couple'. Both dramas are quite funny and entertaining.

    I watched this in 2014 and still can't get over how funny the lead lady's name is until today. Not only both her last name and first name are uncommon, they also connect into the word "messy/disorganized". I mean, just how could you name your kid like that. HOW? XD

    This drama has a perfect balance of comedy and crime for a detective drama. 10/10

    Guys dont trust reviews/most comments praising a drama. This was at most 6/10 if you look at it objectively. IT IS DEFINETLY NOT A MASTERPIECE! Still its worth a watch, but nothing else.

    Now I actually regret not watching it sooner. I had it on my PTW list for quite some time and I always thought, I'll watch it sometime. It reminded me once again of how much I love detective dramas. I loved how the romance, comedy and crime parts were perfectly managed and how the story evolves. The romance was never in focus, that's what I really liked about it. Because sometimes you need romance, but not too much xD

    What I like most about this drama is interaction and story between the four rookies. Park Jung Min and Ahn Jae Yun ,for me, stole the show. First drama of Park and I m impressed and I like Ahn the most in this drama compared to other dramas . The side stories are rather lame making it not necessary to the drama. The slowly build up to the main plot is quite ok and it's just this director's style. I like LSG but i find him acting as a cold person ,a little unconvincing ...because he has such a sweet warm face. I admit I initially watched it for CSW ahjussi but he's just ok in this drama,nothing to die for

    This is THE DRAMA to watch. It was funny, intriguing, dramatic and full of suspense, and it was perfectly balanced out. I am so glad I decided to watch this. And the romance between the two main leads was just too cute. I am definitely going to watch this again sometime soon :)

    Spectacular!!!! This drama had everything - humor, intrigue, great cast, and romance. Kudos to couple Go Ah Ra and Lee Seung Gi for bringing passion filled, playful and demonstrative affection, which is missing in most Korean dramas, to the forefront. I hope this will become a new trend.
