Detective K: Secret of the Virtuous Widow


1782, it's 16th year of

King Jeong-jo,

another case of

corruption develops

while the King fights

to establish his power

against the arrogant

conservative faction.

Tax, the basis of the country's

economy started to disappear

due to corruption of

a unmatched scale.

To find the culprit

behind the conspiracy,

King commands his closest ally

to investigate.

He was given the position of

5th Senior Official Detective

who will search for

truth and justice.

Thereby giving rise to

Joseons first detective.

Detective K:

Secret of Virtuous Widow


Good boy.


Over there!

Go up.


Tie him up.

Hold it there!



Landing needs more work.

Is it you again?

But, not too bad

since I apprehended the criminal.

What are you doing?

Tie up the criminal.

No! He is the criminal.



You are hereby arrested for

the murder of Park Bong-dal!

1 and a half hours ago

Scattered rafter dust,

tight rope...

Begging to be seen as suicide

but clearly murder in disguise!

The scar wouldn't be this wide

if he hung himself.

Excretion would flows downwards,

not everywhere in a mess.

Someone hanged his neck

on the snare

and strangled him from

behind the rafters!

The room has been tidied up

after the struggle.

Who could be the criminal?

Hyun-bang with bad knees?

Lee-bang the midget?

Or Gong-bang with the tremor?

It would've been difficult for you.

If that is the case...

Why would I kill one of my own?

This accusation is outrageous!

You're asked to

match up the pair.


Should be a piece of cake

even for a 3-year-old.

Are you afraid because

it belongs to the dead man?

Who's afraid?

There you go.


What's the problem?

Why did you hesitate

over the same color?

Why can't you say it!?

You're a colorblind.

Who can't distinguish

red from green!

Park wanted to report you

for embezzling public imposts.

You had to kill him

to shut him up!

Let's talk about the details later!

Lock him up immediately!

Sir, what should we

do about him?

He is a stranger to this town

and doesn't seem like

a typical dog thief.

Leave it to me and

I'll investigate his crime.

It is no surprise that

people are afraid of the court.

The innocent gets half-crippled

by senseless torture.

I will not accept a confession

obtained by breaking of bones

and shearing of skin.


He's just a dog thief.

Give him a few floggings.

Wait, sir!

What about the speech

about senseless torture!

Please, wait!

It's time to tell the truth.

Who's behind this?

How many times already?

Sudden deaths of officials

accused of embezzlement,

even before the questioning.

Perhaps it is as you say.

Yes, assassins are sent

to shut them up.

Whoever behind this is

someone powerful.

Perfect deception in

the method of killing.

No such thing as a perfect murder.

This was it.

This needle was struck through

the vital pressure point.

How the pin was inserted

all the down to the eye,

it's the work of a professional.

If it wasn't for me...

I think I should go

into this field.

I think we should request

for an official investigation.

There's no one we can trust.

His Majesty commissioned

this secret investigation for a reason.

You report this

to the King in private,

and find out

where the embezzled funds are going.

What about you?

- I'll go to Jeok-seong.

- Jeok-seong?

The rash behind the neck was caused

by pollen of wolfsbane flower.

It probably came from the killer.

Wolfsbane flower is

a speciality of...

Jeok-seong region.

What a skillful...

no, a vicious bastard!

Sir! Sir!
