Kang Dae Man is a popular blogger who writes about cold cases, and head of a profiling online forum. But in real life, he runs a comic book shop, is always scolded by his wife and assumes the role of a glorified babysitter. His Sherlock Holmes-level deduction skills are of no use in his daily life. His only joy is hanging around at a local police station and interfering with ongoing policeinvestigations. Nicknamed ‘the White Shark’, homicide veteran detective Noh Tae Su was a legend in his heyday but he was demoted many years ago and now he’s forced to work under his junior. Then one day, a horrific murder takes place and Dae Man’s friend and detective Noh’s partner Joon Su is framed for the murder! Time of death is clearly given away by the broken wristwatch of the victim, and the murder weapon was discovered wrapped in Joon Su’s clothing. Not wanting to see Joon Su rot in prison for 30 years, Dae Man and detective Noh have no choice but to partner up and uncover the plot behind the murder. As more bodies surface without any solid connection between them, the two men know that they are running out of time…

This movie was so much fun! The right amount of comedic elements mixed with mystery and crime solving! For those like me who enjoy a good laugh but who aren't overly fond of Comedy genre's in general - this was the perfect mix!

I loved our two leads! They were more alike than they realized :P One a "veteran" detective who has experience in the field and one a "wannabe" detective. We see them clash time and time again, the novice is constantly getting shooed away, but that doesn't make him give up - especially when his friend is no in danger! He gets even more involved and the reluctant detective seems to have no choice but to team up with him in order to save his partner. *I feel like I've seen a similar movie before *especially with the baby involved* but I can't recall the name of that one...* Anyways it was lots of fun seeing these two together and see them actually grow on one another :P and I liked the ending too! ^^ These poor guys though XD Having to "beg" their wives so often lol ah, that was funny to see :P

"Women are creatures to be respected." <*snickers* it was so funny why they said that - I actually pitied these dudes a little :P

Music: well suited for a mystery detective solving movie :)

I would definitely re-watch this movie at some point - it's lots of fun!

THE COMBINATION OF THE LEADS
WAS GREAT, I LOVE THESE TWO.

THE FIRST EVER DRAMA I SAW
ON PUBLIC TELEVISION WAS
KWON SANG WOO IN "STAIRWAY
TO HEAVEN" HIS TALENT IN THAT
DRAMA BLEW ME AWAY.

LATER A FRIEND TOLD ME ABOUT
THEM BEING AVAILABLE AND THUS
STARTED MY DRAMA DREAM.

THIS MOVIE IS REALLY GREAT.
A FUNNY PART AND A VERY SERIOUS
PART. THEY BLEND SO WELL AS SANG WOO
GETS KICKED AROUND ALL THE TIME.
SEE A DIFFERENT CHARACTER ROLE
AND ENJOYED IT VERY VERY MUCH.

LIKE THE TWO HEADS WORKING
TOGETHER.

IF YOU LIKE A SERIOUS WHO DONE IT
MIXED WITH A GREAT AMOUNT OF
LAUGHS...COME WATCH YOU WON'T
REGRET IT.
