Park Ji HyunKang Sang Jun, and Kim Shin Bi gear up to uncover the secrets of another murder case.

The upcoming ninth episode of SBS's Flex X Cop, scheduled to air on March 1, marks the beginning of the second half of the K-drama. 

The production team has released stills featuring Lee Kang Hyun (Park Ji Hyun), Park Joon Young (Kang Sang Jun), and Choi Kyung Jin (Kim Shin Bi), who appear on a movie set modelled after a hotel in Gyeongseong (present-day Seoul).

The stills show Team 1 of Gangha Police Station's violent crime department and forensic inspectors from the National Forensic Service conducting investigations on the set. 

This raises curiosity about Team 1's new case and how they will tackle it without chaebol Detective Jin Yi Soo (Ahn Bo Hyun).

Meanwhile, the surprising appearance of Kang Sung Yun and Choi Tae Joon also heightens anticipation.

In the stills, Kang Sung Yun and Choi Tae Joon are seen dressed in mid-20th-century fashion. Kang Sung Yun flawlessly portrays a modern woman from the mid-1900s with her lace dress and elegant updo hairstyle.

On the other hand, Choi Tae Joon flaunts his gentlemanly charm in a fedora and trench coat, but despite his genteel appearance, his restless and anxious gaze creates tension.

In the upcoming ninth episode, Team 1 will encounter a shocking incident where the lead actress is discovered dead on the set of a mystery film.

Episode 9 of Flex X Cop will air on March 1. The K-drama is available to stream on Disney+.
