Aj Excellent cast, plot, and integrated stories with lots of wry humor, mystery, gentle romance, action, perfect closure. The leads who were also of course in Jumong have great chemistry. Highly recommended.

wiksday I don't know that Song Il-Kook is 3 years older than Lee Jong-Hyuk. but in this drama Lee Jonng-Hyuk looks older than him.

Quan Hello, yes, I also think it's him, the actor who played excellently along with Kim Nam-Gil in "No Regret". (In here his name's rendered as Lee Young-Hoon.)

Vallery Is it possible that Kim Young-Tae is played by Lee Yeong-Hoon?

Quan ... hello again ... guys, KDrama/films fans, please, if somebody out there can share the actor's name of Jo Min-joo's funny boss in, I'd really be grateful. (The other funny character is played by Mr. Oh Yong) Thank you in advance. His character's name in there is Jang Pal Goon, as stated early in Episode 3, when they were awarding a good-job certificate plus flowers to Min-joo. I think he's one very good actor and I wonder if there are other dramas out there with him in it. If I knew his name then I could look for them. Again, thank you very much...

Quan I rated this drama 100%. I like the personalities/roles of Song Il Guk and Song Ji Hyo here (plus the others in the main cast also). Despite that she calls him 'Ahjussi' still Park Se Hyuk and Jo Min Joo are right for each other, they're funny together, not sticky sweet to each other, each passionate of their respective jobs, supportive of each other, accepted as a close-buddy-pair by everyone around them, and so their 'romance' wasn't a source of 'stress' for me. Their bond, and the scenes where they are together, was a 'comfort zone' to me all throughout the drama, since the scenes have crimes for base stories. The crime-storylines cannot be underestimated also, especially the last case, on which I really gave my full attention to. I am relieved that Se Hyuk and his team are shown to be competent cops who sincerely care for people, and so for me this itself is the drama's statement, that evil intentions does not pay. Wow, the actors/actresses here are among the best, including those who played small parts. I salute Mr. Jang Hang-Seon (as Retired Team Leader Kwon) and Mr. Kim Kyu-Cheol (as Jo Sung Tae) for roles that are unforgettable to me. This is among the dramas I am never tired of watching repeatedly, the music is good, there's always something to laugh about, there are many very important life lessons to be picked up, though I do speed thru some gory scenes (!!ironically I learned a nice Korean phrase from one of them: "jal-hae-sseo-yo", meaning "Well done!") The bonding within Se Hyuk's workteam and the hilarity in Min Joo's workplace also endear this drama to me (thank you!) !Park Se Hyuk and Jo Min Joo! Aja! You're my favorite pair! Thank you 'Crime Squad'!

Abyss I love this drama so so so much!! It's more intense and REAL than most overly cliche K-drama.. I love the relationship between Detective Park and Reporter Jo.. they're both so adorable :) I was hoping for them to be more romantic though :). Perfect ending would be they end up together and maybe do a 2 years epilogue or something where Min Joo will go to the station and let Sae-Hyuk knows she's pregnant or something.. that'll be so sweet~ and at least Sae Hyuk will have second chance at being happy and have a great family..

I wish there will be 2nd season!!! ;__;

dramalover Song Il-Guk and Song Ji-Hyo again in jumong

queenlala i am fanatic any crime story but SORRY to say, this drama are unbelievable slow, boring and stressful. This is the worse plot crime drama i ever watch. No wonder the rating so low.

Zetsu Who was songhui ?? She's soooooo BEAUTIFUL <3

Isabella I love this drama! is anyone knows any good detective Korean drama like this and not too old ones?? if do please tell me. ^^ thanks in advance

fatemeh It was very very beautiful I LOVE IT...

Nad Just want to say , i very-2 like this drama. Don't miss it until now. Hope there will be a drama like this again. Hwaiting !

lara I really hope there is season 2 for this drama....there are lot of unfinished stories than can be continued. Especially for the lead characters Song Il Gook and Song Ji hyo...Crime Squad is great. I hope there is really a season 2!

NewKDramaAddict I really like this drama! I am a lover of the unconventional. I was saddened that Sun Woo-Sun left! She was my favorite. Was not super crazy about the replacement.

Jun-Yeon i like this drama a lot but i feel sorry for Det. Park and Ms. Heo for losing Hae-In like that. Really sad... :(

@ Jackie That was a really mean thing of you to say. Even if you don't like the drama, please don't express your thoughts to us. I'm sorry you don't like this drama and I hope you find a better one for you. If you like violent TV, consider CSI. Please don't insult more dramas online. Have a nice day~

Jackie this show is the smelly armpit of kdrama. it stinks.

nida dela cruz i like the tandem of song il guk & song ji hyo, and all the other cast in the tv series, our family always watch the show every monday & tuesday here in Manila, i like both of them way back the movie jumong. they are funny and there is chemistry in their acting. i hope for the continues drama of detectives in trouble or the of the same theme.

Judy This drama seems cool and action . I really liked the first two episodes CUZ they were very interesting .

I'm looking forward to watching what will happen next ^_^
