Imprisoned in 1952?

Almost 50 years in solitary.

That's a record.

One gold ring.

One handkerchief.

One wooden figurine.

You carved this?

It passed through the 4th and

a 5cm long 2cm wide abrasion.

Injection marks above

the right talus...

Must be a narcotics addict.

Now I'll begin.

No left kidney,

right kidney... 150 grams.

Right lung, 500 grams.

It was found at the crime site.

Looks expensive...

can't be the victom's.

It's peculiar knife.


Judging from the angle

and depth of the wound,

the murderer is a 175cm

tall man with strong arms.

The suspect remains unknown,

and we haven't identified

a source for the knife yet.

Any clues about the word

'Dae-ryang' found on the victim?

We're searching through

personal and company names.

There are 29 people nationwide

with the name Dae-ryang.

We're checking one by one.

Well then, follow up on

the narcotics angle.

And you do a futher

search of the crime site.

Yes, sir.

What about the black

market for organs?

The victim had no left kidney.

He probably sold it

to buy narcotics.

All right, let's investigate

that first.

Detective Oh!

You know what'll happen

if you get another reprimand?

You'll be sent to a district

office and stripped of your gun.

Leave your gun in its holster.


Organs wanted

Oh my poor Byung-ho,

how will I live without you?

If I let you die, how will

I face my parents in heaven?

I want to live.

Please, help me.

- Do you need an organ?

- Yes, we need a kidney.

Here's a down payment.

Hi, there!

I knew I smelt something bad

in here, it's the cops.

It's me, Detective Chun!

I'll ask you an eight-word


and you give me

a one-word answer:

Only three possibilities:

'Yes','Yeah' or 'Yep'.

Do you know the home

of Yang Dal-Soo?

This place is a dump.

He's got moonshine here.

Your phone is now disconnected.

Please pay your bill at once.

These are the documents of

the victim, Yang Dal-Soo.

Address is Geoje Island,

but his national ID

has been revoked.

What a record... smuggling,

fraud, assault, narcotics.

So splendid!

Anything from his phone records?

On the day he was murdered,

he made eight calls.

- One was to shilla Hotel.

- Shilla Hotel?

Yeah, and the other 7 were

made in a space of 10 minutes.

Were those calls for drugs?

So I asked my informer

to look into it.

I have to go.

It's my daughter's birthday.

She's waiting for a present,

so I need to get her one.

I hope I don't get

any emergency calls.


Detective. Oh, it's me.

If I get caught ratting,

you gonna bail me out?

Start talking.

It's Kim Jung-Cheol's number.

The dead man bought

drugs from him.

and worked as a dealer.

Don't look for me often.

You shouldn't play with fire.

Kim Jung-Cheol,

I'll ask you

a five-word question.

And you give me a one-word answer.

Only three possibilities.

Yes', 'Yeah', 'Yep'.

Did you kill Yang Dal-Soo?

Start talking.

You'll regret this.

I'm sure you will.

- Hi, honey.

- Hi!

Stop, or you'll regret it.

I said that you'd regret it.

I never even touched

a hair on his head!

Damn! I just sold him

some stuff.

Where were you at 10:00pm on

May 9 and 1:
00 the next morning?

- I was... somewhere.

- Where?

I had something to do.

What kind of thing?

Not a big thing.

Do I have to beat it out of you?

- I was chatting on the internet.

- Really?

Ask the owner of the cafe,

he'll tell you.

Chatting with whom?

With a middle-school girl.

What a guy.

How could the dead man

afford the drugs?

He had money. I heard

he got it from his rich friend.
