Brief Synopsis

What is the moral level of Korea in the 21st century? Is this society one where common sense is still valid? A country where just because of the fact that some officials are elected candidates they think they can get away with bribery and large-scale wiretappings initiated by National Institutions. Who are our people supposed to trust? A weak traffic police Lee Soon Ae. Let's hope that she will soothe our surging anger.


Lee Soon Ae - Nam Sang Me

About the time that Soon Ae was about to graduate high school her father's print shop was not doing very well. They were barely making enough to scrape by. So as soon as she graduated she went out to help make money for the family. She married a young police officer, Kim Minook, but shortly after their marriage he died in a questionable car accident. Soon Ae ends up becoming a special recruit police officer but soon finds that making a living on her own is not too easy. After accidentally stepping on the edge of the First Lady’s skirt she gets moved to a neighborhood public security center where she gets harassed by drunks, goes around looking for runaway teens, and get bruises here and there trying to help solve domestic disputes. She has a very troublesome life but she works very hard never to forget her duties as a police officer.

Kang June - Lee Joo Hyun

He graduates with exemplary grades and stands out among his classmates with his outstanding skills in solving cases which gets him promoted as a police captain early on in his career. He is a very lonely person who is frighteningly cold-hearted, doesn't let his feelings be shown nor does he let others come into his heart. But one day he meets the troublemaker police officer Soon Ae who starts to melt his heart.

Park Eun Joo - Yu Sun

She is born the eldest of a family from which many of Korea's best police officers were born. As a child she got all sorts of special education and was brought up not knowing any hardships. She is the most intelligent and talented woman ever to graduate from the police college. It’s hard to believe that her feelings toward Kang June are truly love but one thing for sure is that she can not let someone take the most popular and best officer away from her. But just when she thought Kang June was all hers his heart starts to move toward the preposterous Lee Soon Ae! Just watching her going ahead and solving cases before any orders come down from the investigators stirs up great hatred inside Eun Joo's heart.

Soon after, Eun Joo herself gets into a great accident.
