This drama is about an insurance investigation team who investigates foul play and insurance cheats. They are a group of normal employees who decide to take a stand, unearthing the truth hidden beneath the lies and discovering the dark secrets of those in power. Everyone has a secret they want to keep under covers forever, and insurance agents and policy holders are no different.

I really enjoyed this drama, It has just enough comedy and suspense to keep me entertained. We see a life insurance team investigate cases to find out if there is any fraud or foul play schemes (insurance doesn't sound too fun but believe me this was very enjoyable). The team usually divides up into pairs of two and each investigate their own assignments.

The three main leads are Park Chan Ho (Uhm Ki Joon), Gong Chul Soo (Kim Heung Soo) & Joo Kang Yi (Shim Eun Jin) - they usually were on cases together in the beginning, then as the episodes progressed it'd be either both the guys or one of them and her working together. There is sort of a love triangle between them but don't worry it's very light - nothing that will get us "triangle haters" annoyed lol

Park Chan Ho is very carefree and doesn't care about other's opinions, he does what he sees fit and if he's suspicious of something he doesn't let go. He is also very sloppy and well rather dirty lol - he eats a lot and farts a lot - which was part of the entertainment - he was a great partner who really cared about people, so he'd make you fall for him even with all his bad habits.
Gong Chul Soo is the newbie to the team but he like the rest has a strong sense of justice. He's the opposite of Chan Ho in cleanliness - he is very neat and clean & adorable to boot ^^
Joo Kang Yi a hard nut to crack, she's warm underneath but rather cold on the outside (given her past it's reasonable) She likes to finish cases without involving her emotions but like Chan Ho if she suspects something it's hard for her to let it go.
I loved the comradery between the three main leads <3

Sometimes I wondered if I was really watching a drama about insurance - it seemed like detective work most of the time lol - especially the last 4 episodes. It made me think "ah, so insurance agents can wind up in sticky situations too huh? It can even get dangerous at times."

Music was awesome, I loved it - 2 songs in particular, one a ballad and the ending song - unfortunately they are no where to be found on the internet - I've searched with no luck :'(

The NG's at the end of each episode were my favorite things - I love bloopers ^^

I would watch this again but probably not right away.
