Crime Squad Review

Title: Crime Squad
AKA: Homicide / Detectives in Trouble
Genre: Action, crime, police, (romance)
Episodes: 16
Broadcast period: 2011-Mar to 2011-Apr
Cast: Song Il Gook, Lee Jong Hyuk and Song Ji Hyo.

This drama follows the detectives of the Special Task Force. Park Se Hyuk (Song Il Gook) left his teaching job, so he could become a detective, in order to bring light on the case which caused the death of his 6-year-old daughter. Five years he has been solving cases and is known to be hotheaded, aggressive and stubborn, but has not been able to find out anything about his daughters case. He lives his life in depression and rage, until he one day gets a new Team Leader, Jung Il Do (Lee Jong Hyuk), the man responsible for his daughter’s death.
Jo Min Joo (Song Ji Hyo) just got a new job at a third rate website as a reporter, but hot-blooded as she is, she tries to get scoop, really close up, ending her meeting Se Hyuk, and they somehow become a dynamic duo; the reporter and the cop.
As a new case shows up; a bank robbery and a kidnapping, Se Hyuk soon finds out that the man behind it, is the man who also lost his girlfriend in the same accident where Se Hyuk lost his daughter, and he tries to make Se Hyuk even more confused about his daughter’s death…

I actually didn’t expect to like this drama as much as I did. It’s fresh, different from all the other Korean police dramas (if you ask me), and pretty good, as an action/crime drama. It has a very light feeling to it, and I have to admit, the actors are great, even the dude from T-MAX…
The storyline is strong, and goes pretty neatly, I’m just surprised about the deaths, and the corruption, all within the main characters. Anyhow, a great drama with great actors and great storyline… Sort a recommendable, for some…

☆☆☆☆ / 4 out of 5 stars
