The Good Detective

모범형사 / The Good Detective

This drama is about the battle between detectives who try to reveal the truth and those who frequently cover it up.

Set in Incheon, South Korea, detectives try to catch criminals, who hide ugly truths. Kang Do Chang (Son Hyun Joo) has worked as a detective for the past 18 years. He was born and raised in Incheon. He investigates cases using his experience and personal connections, forgoing scientific technique or reasoning power.

Meanwhile, Oh Ji Hyuk (Jang Seung Jo) is an elite detective. He has 9 years of experience. Unlike Kang Do Chang, he investigates cases using evidence and insight into the criminal’s psyche. Due to trauma from his childhood, he does not share his feelings. He is wealthy thanks to his late uncle, who left him with a large inheritance. Jin Seo Kyung (Lee Elliya) works as a newspaper reporter. She is a 5 year veteran and passionate about her work.

Neither the forensic skills nor the deductive or inductive reasoning skills fit the description of the detective in his 18th year, Gang Do Chang. However, his true qualities lie in being righteous and diligent. Returning from a 1-year leave of absence, Oh Ji Hyuk is a graduate of Korean National Police University who can be a little unsympathetic, but he specializes in catching criminals based on his keen insight and attention to detail.

The two with completely different characteristics are put into a team and become involved with a crime from five years ago that ended with the murderer Lee Dae Chul’s death sentence. Being the detective who undoubtedly arrested Dae Chul at the time, Do Chang finds himself in a tight spot when he comes across the evidence that proves Dae Chul’s innocence, following a recent murder case involving Dae Chul’s daughter, Lee Eun Hye.

If the verdict is overruled, not only Do Chang but also all parties related to the ruling will be held responsible. Caught in the middle of those who seek power and those who seek the truth with evidence against him piling up, Do Chang tries to act upon his guiding principles to properly settle the lose-lose situation. It’s now up to The Good Detective to either save the innocent man from a wrongful execution or submit himself to a tempting corruption.
