Someone definitely fished out

the body from the stream.

How so?

On what basis?

Wet clothes, hair, and grass

leaning towards the body.

You live up to your name,

Mr. Profiler!

SEO YOUNG-HEE But who'd drag

the body to the bike trail?

The killer!

Why'd he do that?

This case's greatest mystery is...

When will you pay

the remaining $720?

Come back tonight.

And you'll tell me

to comeback tomorrow.

By the way.

Why aren't we getting

new books?

If you pay up,

maybe you will get some!


Please pay me tonight!

I finally put her to sleep...

I'm changing it,

please stop crying!

No way,

you just pooped.

Take a deep nap

until mommy gets here.

You can do it.

Sorry, I must be nuts.

I'll sit softly,

sorry, Hong-ji.



My baby's so calm

like an angel!

Not even crying!

We need to talk.

Not a word about me quitting.

No, the sales is dropping.

Customers hate

the crying and pooping.

Can the sales go even lower?

We gotta pay for Gun-weds

kindergarten next year.

Stop irritating me

and give me the money.

It's Monday,

this week's living expense.

New books came in,

so I paid for that.

I forgot.

Huh? The credit card bill's

due tomorrow.

- What about your salary?

- I started 2 weeks ago.

How many new books?

This is all there's left?

Show me today's shipment.


Be honest.

Do you still close shop

and hangout at the station?

Don't even joke.

Then show me the new books!


Hong-ji's crying!

Take her!

And the money?!

Pay the bill with another card,

I'll think of a way.

You said that about our debt!

She's crying!


All right, baby,

mommy's here.

Go away!


Don't cry, sweetie.

Don't cry, sweetie.

You really got the wrong guy!

- Just listen to me!

- Shut it!

Det. Lee!

Det. Kang's looking for you!

- We got a Kang?

- Yes, we do.

The mentalist with

powerful deduction skills.

Here he comes.

Yo, Joon!

You can't tell your colleagues

apart after 2 weeks?

Closed a case?

Come here, asswipe.

- Come.

- That hurts!

What's he in for?

Rape? Larceny?

When you breakup with a girl,

do you torch her house?

Then why were you there?

I was coming back

from a sauna.

Sauna? What time?

I went there at 12:30 or so,

and stayed for an hour.

When did the fire break out?

Stop lying, asswipe!

Then how come no one

remembers seeing you?


Okay, I'll shut my mouth!

I'm serious!

Go home!

Just go home, Dae-man.

You took a sick day,

where are you sick?

Are you sick?

As you know,

her wedding was at 1 today.

I wanted to get away,

I met her at work.

That's a weird coincidence.

Her house is torched

on the day of her wedding,

and her heart-broken ex is

watching it burn down.

When I was passing it,

the firetruck was already there.

Yeah, mom.

I'm fine,

don't worry about it.

It's nothing at all.

It's okay.

- What an idiot.

- I'll call you back later.

Empty your pockets, now!

He didn't do it.

Joon-su, uncuff him.

I'll leave!

Let me just say one thing!

Dae-man, please!

Let me go!

He really didn't do it!

Hey, hey!

say Your piece.

Firstly, there's no doubt that

he was at the sauna.

Look, his wristwatch

came from his pocket.

Conclusive evidence of undressing.

- Right! Right!

- That's it? Leave.

One more!

Please, just one more!

Did you hear that ringtone?

If he was the perp,

he'd have turned it off.


It's not like he needs to alert
