Takakura So witnessed his father's murder at a young age. Pledging to catch the killer, he grows up to become an elite cop in New York City, where the criminal lives. His character is cool-headed and disciplined, yet adapts well. Because of major drug dealings, he gets sent to Tokyo to conduct a joint investigation with the Japanese police. There, he gets teamed up with, Kudo Maruo, a detective from a special investigative division. Kudo is a hot-blooded fighting expert due to his earlier days as a delinquent, but he makes a strong impression with his stylish appearance and is always interested in going on group dates. His personality, interests, and investigation methods are completely mismatched with Takakura's, but the two somehow work together to crack the case they've been given.

    This drama holds a special place in my heart as it's one of the few dramas where I would look forward to watching every week. The reason why I liked it so much, was because of it's witty dialogue, the wonderful chemistry between Mizushima Hiro, and Oguri Shun, and the absolutely hilarious moments as well as the serious moments in the show. Overall, the storyline is an 8 for me(because at the end I wanted more. The acting was perfect though. I loved the music as well, especially the insert song by EXILE. This drama is one of the few which i would say has a lot of rewatch value. Overall, this drama is a 9 for me. Hope you all enjoy :)

    They chose they best lead actors for this drama. Those two were just too funny! The plot is pretty good with a few twists. There are serious moments, but still somehow comical. Its been a little while since Ive seen the show, but from what I remember, I would not change a thing in the show. DEFINITELY watch. Its worth it.

  • Both are Police dramas speckled with comedy and serious moments.

  • Both have a circumstance where two police men who are completely different (one easygoing and one serious) from each other have to team together to solve a big case. Both have only speckles of love in them and there is a lot of comedy for both of them as well.
