I was interested in this series because it features one of the prettiest, and underrated, actresses, Hwang Sun-Hee [she was a supporting actor in City Hunter, playing the veterinarian role].
In the beginning episode, it appears to be a cartoonish and poorly scripted series, but quickly evolves into a highly sophisticated and cleverly written story of multi-layered police/judicial corruption, with the main character - - the prosecutor who is also the masked vigilante - - played by Joo Song-woo of the male model-type looks, and fairly effectively.
The police/task leader, actress Kim Seon-o, does a great job, and when her character reveals what she's deduced about the prime motivation of the former crooked cop, now construction company CEO, it is of such an intelligent level that most dumbed-down American and Canadian viewers might not understand - - equating to some of the reasons behind the privatization of prisons in America, as well as why our two former governors, Gary Locke and Christine Gregoire, brought in so many ex-convicts to the King County and Puget Sound areas [by signing the Interstate Compact on Adult Offenders - - in order to expand organized crime, one must have an employee base, after all].
Police corruption and political corruption are always financially rewarded and strictly involved with the profit motive.
