He aspired to be a homicide detective but after years of failed attempts, he now runs a comic store. He walks on eggshells around his wife for failing to provide for the family. But he cannot help himself making daily trips to the police station. One day, his best friend and detective, Jun-su, is charged with the murder. Dae-man sets out to investigate to prove his friend's innocence. Only the washed up Detective Noh offers to help his colleague in trouble. A cold case specialist blogger's theory coupled with field experience of a seasoned detective and the two launch a joint investigation into their friend's alleged murder.

the entire neighborhood, right?

Yup! Yup!

Go home.

See you.

I'm sorry.

Joon-su, did you

check out his shoes?

Did you see?

- Son of a bitch!

- Take a look!

Do arsonist swear flip-flops?

Those are more for strolling

around the neighborhood!

Why didn't he flee

when the cops came for him?

So that flips won't flop off?

He's a heart-broken man,

you should be sorry for him!

Drop it, asswipe.

Is this your friends' playground?

I'm sorry, sir.

Make sure he gets this message.

If he ever shows up around here,

I'll make him into

a cold case suspect.

Yes, sir.

Crazy bastards...

And let that asswipe go.

'Homicide White Shark'?

Him? Bullcrap.

Gangsters couldn't even

lock eyes with him.

Then why's he here?

Being a legend and all.

While arresting gang members

killing 3 of them.

What? Killed 3?

With his bare hands, asshole.

Since he's so hard-boiled

and uncontrollable,

that case was used as

a pretext for his demotion.

If you piss off the brass,

they'll cut you off like that.

Academy grad?

I thought he was

a lazy egomaniac.

If you don't watch it,

he could f*ck you up.

You're so full of crap!

He doesn't look like

an Academy type.

Did he even graduate high school?


I'm so envious of you.

Not this again, asshole.

I really want to...

smash these legs!

I'm sorry!


Let me try again!



I'm gonna smash 'em all!

I'm gonna smash 'em all!

That bastard!

I want proper legs!

My bud's a po-po!

I'm sorry.

Have a good night!

Take care!


Hey, what's up?

N ow?

What did he say?

He wants to go drinking,
