Gang-Yoon, played by the brilliant Cho Jin-woong, is a cop who will do whatever it takes to get the job done, and most of the time, whatever it takes is not the most moral way of going about things.
Gang-Yoon is flashy, wearing designer brand suits and expensive watches. While there was a moment where he could have easily arrested an individual who’s been found to possess drugs, Gang-Yoon lets him off scot-free, much to Min Jae’s surprise. This is just the first account Min Jae sees of Gang-Yoon’s shady behavior, but it doesn’t stop there. As Min Jae continues to work side-by-side with Gang-Yoon to obtain more information on him and see if he does indeed have any involvement with other illegal trades, Min Jae enters into a whole different world of corruption he was never familiar with when he first started his career in the police force. But, for Min Jae, this is more than just a job, it’s an opportunity for him to really learn more about the death of his dad while on duty.
