This won't end just because

you say sorry and get relocated.

Anyway, watch yourself

in shallower waters.

It's easier to be scrutinized

in a small town.

Word travels fast, got it?

If something like that happens again,

no one can look after you. Be careful.

Get your act together.

Inspector Lee Young-nam is here.

Lee Young-nam, sir.

Sit down.

With your help,

I was safely reassigned.

Sure. It's been 10 days?

Yes, sir.

I don't have any bias in that area.

I don't want to make a fuss over

someone's personal affair.

But we are part of a community.

We shouldn't do things

that we know will cause trouble.

We have the school's

reputation to uphold.

If you lay low for about a year,

you should be able to return.

Thank you.

All right.

Take good care of yourself.

Thank you.

Chief Lee, come here

and have a drink with us!

Come on, we're roasting fish here!

It's windy today.

Come and play!

Dohee, come here!


What're you doing out

in the middle of the night?

Hey, when your father talks to you...

That little shit.

Huh? Isn't that the chief?

She's been following

the chief around lately.

She's clingy, like her mother.

Why do you keep following me?

You got something to say?

Then what's wrong?

Get on.

Hold on tight,

I'm going to go really fast.

What were you doing there

this morning?

I thought you were gonna

drown yourself in the sea.

I was practicing dance.

Go home. Don't roam around

at night. It's dangerous.

What's wrong?

Can I go with you?

Get inside.

You fucking bitch.

Where the f*ck were you?

Stupid mutt. Acting like

a mutt, just like her mom.


What happened?



The body of an old woman?

A motorcycle?

I'll be right there.

I was called to the scene

at 04:
40 hours.

I'll need a crime scene investigator.
