l said, up on my signal, idiot!

The point was the flutter

right before the sunrise.

l'm sorry l got nervous.

The weather was

perfect today...

Now we have to come back


lt takes sweat to get

a masterpiece, right?

Forget it...

Let's get out of here.

- Oh, come on...

- Why did l bring him along?

Hey, did l want to be here?

You dragged me out here!

For God's sake!

Now what?!

Written and Directed by

Kim Hyoung-jun


So, she died from over-excitement

during intercourse?

A death in the saddle?

ln so-called 'sweet death,' C.O.D.

is usually heart attack for men

and cerebral hemorrhage,

for women.

That's why some say that

men takes in sex through their hearts

and women through their brains...

l'll leave it to yourjudgment.

But the autopsy showed

no sign of cerebral hemorrhage.

She was anaphylactic to penicillin.

You mean antibiotics?

But, that's used everywhere...

For an anaphylactic, even a small

dose of penicillin could be fatal.

The husband takes out a lucrative

insurance policy for his wife...

and visits the hospital to get

an injection for a fake sore throat,

comes home and

has sex with his wife.

A trace of antibiotic in the husband's

semen is passed into the wife's body.

This small hospital receipt played

a crucial role in catching a murderer.

lt looks like you did, sir.

Are you really going to leave?

Stay for another semester.

l'm sorry but l want to move on

and live with my daughter.

l'm tired of living with bodies.

So it is for Hye-won...

lt's fortunate that we have experts on

Gaucher's disease in the country now.

Hey, isn't she coming in today?

She is being delayed

by a few days.

Doesn't she know how much

her dad misses her?

Hang on...

Kang speaking.

l'll be on my way.

My mother would flip if she

found out what l do at work...

What an atrocity in

a countryside like this?

She's chopped up

pretty good.

The hell with a day-off...

Just my luck, eh?


Why should l get

socks for him?

What am l,

a personal assistant?

What's her problem?

Oi! Min!

Yes, sir!

Are you setting up the line

or what?!

People are coming across, idiot!

Yes, sir!

Hey, get out of there!

Come on, out!

Get behind the damn line!

Hey, you! Mister!

You, over there!

Where do you think

you're going?

Are you out of your mind?!

Are you all right?

l am so sorry...


Huh? Do l know you?

Class 21 of Police Academy, sir.

l took your psychology classes.

The horn-rim glasses who came

to my house for questions?

Yes, the horn-rim glasses...

You're right. l didn't recognize

you without the glasses.

lt's been over 5 years and

l never graduated...

but you still remembered me!

l'm honored, sir.

- Hey, doc!

- Hello.

lf you're done talking,

get back to yourjob!

What an atrocity in a

quiet countryside...

This way, professor.

Thank you.

Do your goddamn job instead

of knocking people off their feet!

The victim's name is Oh Eun-ah.

She has been reported missing.

What a beautiful body.

Pink nipples, a deep naval and

perfectly shaped pubic hair...

lt's upsetting to think that such

a beautiful body will rot away.

The perpetrator rearranged

the dismembered parts...

back into the positions

before they were mutilated.

Well, except for one arm.

What a psycho!

Why go through the trouble of

chopping it up in the first place?

What do you think the crime scene

and the body are telling you?




Well, if the killer placed the

body in a location like that...

Maybe it wasn't his intention

to hide it.

You're over-complicating

the matter.

Dismembering a body is

usually grudge-related...

lnvestigate the people around

the victim and it's game-over.

l'll bet it's a crime of passion

or grudge-related.

Why would a robber want to

mutilate the body, huh?


lf l were the killer,

l would've gotten rid of

the fingers and

dumped the head elsewhere

in order to impede

identification process.

But, why is only one arm

is missing?

The missing arm, he could have

misplaced it.

You can easily make mistakes

when you're nervous.

Especially when it's not

a couple of pieces but six.

lt's definitely possible. lt's not

slices of pizza we're talking about...

Let's get started.

Come on. Let's give

the man some room.

Detective Min can stay.

ls that okay with you, Chief?

Of course...

Let's get out of here.

A dead body is no longer

a person.

lt's evidence.

The C.O.D. is brain damage

from fractured skull.

Soil containing granite was found

inside the nostrils, mouth and ears.

And, trace of salt was found

all over the body.

lt appears the killer dismembered

the body by the sea

in order to avoid

cleaning up the blood

and dumped the body parts

near the mouth of the river.

The weapon used is likely to be

a long and hard object.

Most damage was done

near the crown of the head.

ln order to deliver a blow directly

perpendicular to the crown,

the killer was either

over 6 ft 6 or...

he struck his victim while

she was kneeling down.

She was struck right

on the head.

But if her face hit the

flat ground,

there is little chance that soil

gets into the mouth or the ears.

Therefore, l believe she was murdered

where there are mounds of granite soil.

ls there such place in the town?

Granite soil can be found in

a cement factory.

ll-seong Concrete, Ltd...

Because of the Coastal

Reclamation Project,

there are tons of such factories

at the seafront of Kunsan.

So, the killer murdered the victim

at a cement factory,

dismembered the body by the sea

and dumped it near the river bank.

What about the suspects?

The victim had a boy friend.

We haven't been able to locate him.

Find him!

The rest, split into 4 units and

dig up every single cement factories.

Hey, Byung-do...

Who the f***...?

A cop, you a**hole!

Heads to the floor!


So, you saw him yesterday?

At the Chung-ang junction.

Down the road...

Be precise, a**hole!

At the junction... Turn right

at the second traffic lights.

Hey, Byung-do!

What the f***?!

We're working round the clock in

How could a murder

take place here?

lsn't there a point in time

where the factory stops running?

Did you hear what l just said?

Those trucks come in

without a pause of a second.

- Easy, boys!

- This is like a f***ing desert.

Detectives! Do something about

the protesters, instead of hassling us.

They don't seem to run

out of the energy.

Save the estuary!

Protect locals' livelihood!

What's going on?

Out of the way!

Be quiet! This isn't a

f***ing market place!

Hey, Byung-do...

Let's have a heart-to-heart

conversation, you and me.

You whacked her because you

couldn't pay back her money, right?

What are you talking about?
