Kang Sun-ho, a high school student, played by Jin Young, does not dare to have any dreams. Having been orphaned at a young age and raised by a family friend, he can’t allow himself the luxury of feeling passionate about anything. Instead he keeps to himself, works diligently at school and learns some top-level hacking skills.
He marvels at his adoptive brother’s ability to fall passionately in love. “What’s your ideal type,” he asks, to which his brother replies, “a girl.” Sun-ho does not get it, but he quickly learns what it means to fall in love and, with that love, discovers a dream that will define his life’s direction. The object of his affections is judo star Oh Kang-hee, played by actress and singer Krystal Jung. Kang-hee wants to attend Police University, so that becomes Sun-ho’s dream too.
There’s only one snag. Sun-ho’s fate is tangled up with that of Yoo Dong-man, a police detective, whose passion for catching the bad guys often leads him to act impulsively and jeopardize entire operations.
Played with comic charm by actor Cha Tae-hyun, Dong-man’s heart is in the right place, but his inability to follow procedure threatens his job. One more disaster and he will either have to be transferred or quit.
Dong-man and Sun-ho are connected in a few ways. They talk anonymously online and then when Sun-ho hacks into an illicit gambling site that Dong-man has been unable to crack, they face each other in a police station. Sun-ho is sent off with a warning that Dong-man should never see his face again. Dong-man is also transferred with a warning, but he’s sent to the Police University that Sun-ho is about to attend.
With comic book flair, crisp dialogue and an engaging cast, the drama’s first episode already promises a heartwarmingly hilarious series. The police university students must learn how to live up to the ideals of integrity and honor, which can occasionally require breaking the law, as Dong-man has so often done. Will Dong-man forgive Sun-ho for his one-time criminal hacking or will he use Sun-ho’s special gift to bring down illicit gambling sites once and for all? How can he resist?
