Qin Feng, why do you want to get

into the Criminal Police College?

Is it so hard to answer?

You can try again next year.

It's no big deal.

I bought you the plane ticket for

a one-week vacation in Thailand.

He will receive you.

He is your great-aunt's

husband's cousin's wife's nephew.

A distant uncle. The number one

detective of Chinatown, Tang Ren.

Time is gone with the wind.

The past is past.

We are childhood sweetheart...

What? Grandma Wang's son

has gone missing?

It's such an important case.

I'll totally take it.

Get out of the car.

The gold is not here.

- Are you sure?

We have searched everywhere.

No sign of it.

Sir, Kon Tai is here.

Thank you, Huang.

- What for?

For protecting

the crime scene for me.

Are you on drugs?

This is my precinct,

so the case is mine.

I have been on it for 3 months

and almost solved it.

Now the gold is gone,

and the suspect is dead.

And you tell me this is your case?

- My precinct, my case.

Come again?

- You've got a problem with that?

Don't make me punch you!

- I'll sue you for that.

You've got a problem with that?

Suspected murder weapon.

Check for finger prints.

- Check for finger prints.

Check for other entrances.

- Check for other entrances.

Pull the security footages outside

the house and send to my office.

Pull the security footages outside

the house and send to my office.

Don't you repeat my words again!

- Don't you repeat my words again!

I win!

- Tang Ren, some dumb luck.

You have somewhere else to go?

- Don't leave right after you win.

Leave? I have an azure dragon

drinking on the left...

...and a white tiger

tail-whipping on the right.

Put sand in your pocket

and the money follows.

Sit in front of a tree and

God of Wealth will come.

I'm going to win everything on you

including all your clothes.

Not you.

Autopsy report.

It's mine!

What are you looking at?

What are you doing here?

You think you are in

a gangster movie?

You two,

come to the conference room.

Come on.

- Come on.

The victim Sompat, 37-year-old

male, owner of Sompat Workshop.

The suspect of

the gold robbery in Chinatown.

The cause of death is

blunt head trauma.

Eleven fatal wounds

on the back of head.

According to the wound edges,

the murderer is a mid-aged male.

The murder weapon

is this iron vajra.

I can't believe

he killed him with this.

What about the finger prints?

- We are processing it.


- The entrance?

No other access to the workshop

other than the front door.

Yes, yes, yes.

- Locked room murder.

I have pulled all the video

footages near Sompat Workshop.

There are four cameras

outside the front door.

The footages are automatically

overwritten every seven days.

We have the footages.

- Yes.

What about the gold?

- It's gone.

I assume that Sompat's partners

killed him and took the gold.


You all know that

Mr. Yan owns the gold.

Even the mayor called me for this.

I feel a lot of pressure.

The one who nabs the suspect

and gets the gold back...

...will be the deputy chief.

Yes, sir.

Tang Ren, you have lost your mojo.

- It doesn't make sense.

Come on.


- Tang, when will you be here?

Qin Feng.

Welcome to Thailand.

Sorry to keep you waiting.

You know I'm a famous detective,

and have a lot on my plate.

I was on a big case just now.

Are you a mute?

- I am...

Not a mute, but a stutterer.

Forget about the college. After

a few happy days in Thailand... will even forget

your grandma.

Bangkok is the most interesting

place in the whole world...

...and the paradise for guys.

Tai, you're late.
