60 min

In the 90s, Shinchon was

the place to be

Streets were filled with trendy

rock cafs and young people

Now, the scene has

moved to Hongdae

In Hongdae alone,

there are over 50 clubs

On so- called 'Club days,'

the area gets packed with clubbers

Not only popular with young people

but also for the expats and US soldiers

creating an ideal environment

for new drugs to flow in

Ecstasy is commonly

known as 'Dori- dori'

Because it makes you shake

your head when you dance

Mapo precinct has seen

an increase in drug offenses

As for Seodaemun,

a massive city redevelopment

project has started

Especially in Sangam- dong,

as if the World Cup Stadium

wasn't enough

they're making a fuss about

an I.T. "city" or something

C. T?

What do they need

a CAT scan for?

No, an "I.T. City," something

to do with culture- technology

I said coffee, not green tea!

But this is coffee

College students these days

have no political awareness

They used to gather in Shinchon

to protest just about anything

City hall square...

has become a popular

choice for protests

When candlelight vigils

were a rage,

Jongro precinct broke their

arrest record in one day

Who left the empty plates

there again!

Geez, why on the floor?

Who are you?

Well, I...

- I'm here to see the captain

- Excuse me?

- Well, the mop first...

- Over there

Do we have any security

measure around this place?

Letting anybody walk in

as they please

- And, you!

- Sir

Is it the captain or a mop

you're looking for?

Do I look like a mop to you?

Who the hell are you?

I'm here to report...

I was appointed to

the post of chief of

Major Crimes as of October 1


He is class of 24

The Academy must have

lowered the bar significantly

That's right

Detective Jo!

What now?

We got a tip about Cheongdo Boys

What should you?

You're asking me?

Get moving, now!

- You!

- Yes, sir

Aren't you going?

Of course I am.



The day is short

Move your asses

The goods have arrived

The goods?

What goods?

They're importing dried pepper

stuffed with ecstasy inside

I see

Painstaking 6 months of

undercover investigation

And, you're taking a free ride

You should buy us all a drink later


Who's that woolly hat?

It's Seodaemun's new chief

I wonder how long he'll last

Is he out for a run

or to buy a smoke?

I say he would fit right in

It's ecstasy

Okay. Let's get to work

Be gentle with the boxes!

You, dumb ass!



There's a fight

It's a turf war over

who takes the hot spot


Don't shake

- On the floor!

- Now!


What are they doing there?

- Detective Jo!

- Come on!

Where are you going?

Get him!

Not so fast!

The package is dispatched

Over there!

Follow that car!

We got a tail

Just one? That's fine

Get a pram ready

Spot 2, have your net ready

Report status

The fish is in the net

Here comes the fish

Give him a welcome

Okay. The fish is turning away

Is that our back- up?

That was fast

They're not one of us

They're Mapo motherfuckers...

Mapo... what?

Not the police?

They're no police

but goddamn thugs!

Shamelessly stealing our

catch from our hands

Whatever you got

planned in mind,

this is our jurisdiction,


And, there is no way you

can take him to your side

Rabbit hole ready

Just drive it right

Hey, hey, hey!

Not that way!

That leads to Mapo

It's our precious baby

- Just drive through!

- No no no no no!

I don't know about the Academy,

but in the Major Crimes world,

where I go is the right way

- Out of the way!

- Out! Out!


Holy Mary!

It's one of theirs!

You can't do this

Mind your baby

What the heck!

The package has arrived

Bro, this way!

Get in!

I haven't seen you around

Who's your boss?

Go go go!

F***ing bastards!

Who are they?

Argh! Mapo's Sneaky Hwang!

Sneaky Hwang?

Nice to meet you

I'm Sneaky Hwang

What's going on?

Officer of the Year

Dirty bastard! You played us

Mapo Police

sweeps drug smugglers

Mr. Commissioner

- How's it going?

- Well, uh...


I got this for you from

the trip to China

What's this fuss about?

Have I done something?

You're asking me?

You hijacked our case that

we worked our ass off for months

How can you do this

to your own kind?

How are we one of a kind?


we're playing

in totally different leagues

You're calling me a bumpkin?

You bastard!

Hey, hey!

An interception doesn't

constitute a foul

You two haven't changed

since the Academy days

There's a promotion review

coming up in 3 months

It's all about the performance

Fishing rods, nets,

electric bars...

I don't care what you use

That was a lot of food

- Hey, Kim

- Sir?

Don't leave the dishes out

Some idiot keeps tripping over them

Yes, sir

You see?

Dumb ass...

Which one of you is

Jeong Eui- chan?


You're embarrassing me

I said which one?


That one standing over there

Now, he's sitting

What's the penalty for speeding?

For 20kmh above the limit,

it's 15pts plus 60 dollar fine

For under, no penalty points

Just a 30 dollar fine

That's all?

Shouldn't it at least cover

a down payment for house

I mean this kind of

speeding violation

He knows

Well, sir...

With your blessing, I'll take

care of the housing issue

I promise you

I'll be an honorable man

Sugar and cream is

the main cause for obesity

Try this instead

The hell with black coffee
