I was looking for something different from all the ongoing drama and a drama that does not air every Wednesday to Saturday. I need something to watch before that because I might go crazy while waiting for the next episode. Especially for TKEM, the theories are just mindblowing. While searching, I accidentally found this new drama and I just fell in love with. Let me give you 6 reasons why you should give it a try.
1. O C N
Hiwa-hiwalay talaga ang letters for emphasis! Lol! I actually imitated the animation of the logo on the left corner of this drama. The way the letters have a space in between them. This network has not yet failed me. I love most of the dramas that I have watched from this network. Like Tunnel, Save Me, Class of Lies and many more. To be honest, I was not expecting much when I started watching but it’s the type of drama that grows on you.
2. The Story
Based on the two episodes that I have watched, the story revolves around the title, Team Bulldog : Off Duty Investigation. It actually tells one story but it has two story tellers. A detective named Jin Kang Ho (Cha Tae Hyun) who solve big cases without any police backup and Kang Moo Young (Lee Sun Bin), a director for a TV show called Fact Check. Each of them targets to get the truth known and to find justice. They both have different methods but always ends up meeting at the same destination.
3. Cha Tae Hyun, The Detective
One of my favorite actor. Seeing him reminds me so much of Sassy Girl. And his movie Along with the Gods, especially after seeing who his father is in this drama. I am laughing whenever he says that he is rich in this drama, maybe because just like the people he says it to, we find it hard to believe that he was really well off (Sorry Cha Tae Hyun). But at the same time, I am also curious as to where his wealth is coming from. I love the way he makes the drama a bit lighter even if the cases that he handles is a bit heavy at times.
4. Lee Sun Bin, The Director
This is the first time I have watched her in a leading role. I must say that her chemistry with Cha Tae Hyun is there. Their ‘unfriendly’ banter looks sweet even if it’s not. And that horse neigh is really something.
5. Supporting Casts
Here are some of the people that you will see with main characters.
A. The Asthmatic Gangster
He is big, and he can definitely put you down. Just seeing him is enough to scare you, along with his sidekicks. He fights well, but he always have his one of a kind inhaler ready when he is having a hard time to breathe. Meet Teddy Jung (Yoon Gyung Ho) an owner of a bar called Red Zone.
B. The Criminal Profiler
He used to be a rich son in Search WWW who really loves his wife even if the marriage was just a contract. He was so serious in Search WWW that I was not expecting to see a funny side in him. Tak Won (Ji Seung Hyun) rans his own private detective agency while selling some networking goods. He used to be a police officer, a profiler. But now he helps Kang Moo Young as a consultant. You will definitely see a different side of him here.
6. The Cases
I enjoy solving the cases along with them. It’s interesting how both of them are so different and yet they are so similar. I have never imagined seeing Cha Tae Hyun as an action star but he pulled it well. I am looking forward for more episodes and cases for them and how their tandem would work out in the end.If you love crime solving drama with a bit of comedy, this one is for you. You will enjoy solving crimes while laughing your heart out.
