I miss Kwon Sang Woo!! he used to be one of my fave actors way back when i was in my early 20s. what has happened to him? he seldoms has movies and dramas lately. I think comedy and action is really his forte. and i miss his cute lisp!
I dont really like Dae-man, if i were his wife i would also get angry at him every single day. However i can understand him – he doesn’t want to be a comic book rental owner. he wanted to be a police but failed because of his knees. he loves profiling and is good at it but he is too annoying. Detective has not even arrested him for obstructing or anything. I didn’t read the review or the story at all so I was racking my brains trying to solve the murders based on the clues that they have. My guess was actually the newbie detective. haha. the whole thing about the “murder exchange” was interesting concept but the way Dae Man explained it was too fast, i was trying to grasp how the whole thing worked. I understood Lee Yuma and Detective Ma, but who was that Han Tae Woong guy? (he looks so much like the arrogant detective i thought it was him) I kinda figures out Yong gyu in the end when i finally connected the dots.
I think between Dae Man and Detective No, it felt like it was Daeman was the brains and mouth and Detective No was following Dae man. but they made a good team. Both hilarious and the comedic timing was spot on! and when they decided to create the PI company together – yay! finally Dae Man will finally earn money while doing what he loves most! Looking forward to the sequel!
