Undesirable Prosecutor: Episodes 1-two
Opening to a powerful week, Undesirable Prosecutor sees our delinquent prosecutor hero fighting off criminals although also starting to weed out the undesirable guys in his personal workplace in his quest for justice and righteousness — all with the aid of a group of unlikely folks supporting him.
EPISODES 1-two WEECAP
We get started the drama with an entitled, evil, wealthy CEO and his goons laughing at the corruption and incompetence of the prosecution. But police officers quickly arrive to arrest him, cutting brief the celebration.
Our hero JIN JUNG (D.O.) arrives, whistling like he has no care in the globe. He appears like a college punk who gets into fights all the time — which he does (and a lot) — except he’s essentially a prosecutor, and a single who usually stands on the side of justice and righteousness.
So why does he come to the rescue of this evil-seeking CEO? In reality, Jung is just pretending to suck up to him to get his hands on some important proof.
Regardless of acquiring caught red-handed, the evil CEO brings out his goons to beat the prosecutor up, but that does not faze Jung due to the fact he has his personal backup — except they do not show up. Oof. Attempting to make contact with them, Jung ends up acquiring lectured by his function superior SHIN AH-RA (Lee Se-hee), a star prosecutor who’s in charge of maintaining him in verify.
Properly, even if he’s alone, he’s capable to beat all the goons with only a kendo stick. Undesirable guy caught and justice served!
The subsequent day, at the prosecution workplace, Jung gets a scolding from Ah-ra. Frustrated, she wonders aloud how he even landed his job. Jung, of course, answers with a confident “I was just talented and fated to be a prosecutor.” Oh my, I looooove him!
He reminisces about his elementary college days, when he allegedly witnessed his 1st injustice — his teacher accepting bribes — and decided he ought to teach her a lesson (by placing a gum on her car’s keyhole LMAO).
He initially wanted to be a swordsman, so he joined the kendo club in higher college. But regardless of his outstanding talents, he was passed more than for the son of a kendo athlete. So he decided to be a prosecutor alternatively. And he did so properly that he became his class’s representative. Except, of course, he’s Jin Jung, and he arrives in a tracksuit with his kendo stick slung more than his shoulder, lol.
Providing up, Ah-ra merely tells Jung to create an apology letter. No worries, Jung’s an professional at this due to the fact he’s currently written hundreds of apology letters, and he’s fairly fed up about it so he just modifications the date on a prior letter. She will not notice anyway! LOL.
In his workplace, his loyal and trusty investigator LEE CHUL-GI (Yeon Joon-seok) enters with new case files, but Jung is fed up with these “trivial” cases… till he finds a murder case in the file. A lady was killed in her residence, allegedly by a delivery guy who has currently confessed.
Jung meets the suspect, a delivery guy who was found seeking bloody at the scene, who recalls the incident with no guilt. He allegedly killed the victim due to the fact he identified her rude.
Regrettably for Jung, the case is promptly wrapped up due to the fact the suspect confessed. But he desires to investigate additional, due to the fact he’s got a undesirable feeling about the case, pondering the crime is also fantastic. Something’s off.
As Jung appears at the suspect becoming taken away, he bumps into Ah-ra, who informs him he desires to show up at their group dinner no matter what. The face he tends to make, haha! As the time to meet draws close to, he tries to make an excuse — His gas! At residence! He left it on! — but Ah-ra knows him also properly. She’s waiting for him outdoors his workplace, so he’s forcibly dragged to the venue.
Due to the fact he does not want to be there, Jung does not partake in any activity, and just eats to his heart’s content material. Regrettably, LEE JANG-WON (Choi Kwang-il), the deputy chief of the central prosecution workplace, calls him out. Ah-ra tends to make Jung leave, but the a single who gets the blame is his boss KIM TAE-HO (Kim Tae-woo), the solemn-seeking head prosecutor of the crime division.
Outdoors, Jung mutters that he didn’t even want to come to this occasion. But it is not for naught. A coincidental meeting with a different guest offers him a clue about the murder case: the suspect is left-handed, but the murder weapon was made use of with the ideal hand. So Jung rushes out to confirm his suspicions — to the ire of Ah-ra. Poor girl. (Must we make a aggravation counter? Lol.)
Back at the group dinner, the deputy chief is drunk and even losing his temper. But Tae-ho reminds him of his upcoming promotion, stopping him from producing a scandal. Following the drunk deputy chief leaves, everybody breathes a sigh of relief. No a single likes him at all.
The subsequent day, Jung continues his investigation, questioning the detective in charge of the report. But the detective is uncooperative, creating excuses and telling him to keep behind his desk. Jung accuses the detective of taking a bribe, and points practically escalate into a fight ahead of he gets kicked out. In the scuffle, Jung was capable to snatch the sketchy detective’s telephone, which they run for testing.
Returning to his workplace, Jung gets shocked by a waiting Ah-ra, who orders him to wrap up the murder case. Everything’s simple, so what is he even waiting for?! But Tae-ho arrives just in time to settle the matter. Following reviewing the case file, Tae-ho makes it possible for Jung to investigate additional, even if he’s dubbed as their department’s “Mr. Troublemaker.”
Jung delves deep into his investigation, and he does come up with some thing: the detective in charge is genuinely suspicious, so he basically kidnaps him, lol. Seeking ominous, Jung threatens the sketchy detective, although Chul-gi begins swinging a hammer. It appears the detective’s gonna get hit — except Chul-gi swings a tiny also tough and lets the heavy hammer fly behind him. Chul-gi tries once more, but he misses the detective’s hand by just a couple of inches. The detective confesses in worry, ultimately providing a written statement.
The subsequent day, Jung visits the suspect once more, questioning his motives about his written confession. Although he appears a tiny nervous, the suspect sticks to his story.
Regrettably, the public is clamoring for justice, dubbing the prosecution incompetent. Tae-ho gets a lecture from Deputy Chief Lee, who tells him to promptly wrap up the murder case. But it turns out that Tae-ho gave Jung the green light to continue investigating due to the fact he has his personal suspicions, in particular about the involvement of Deputy Chief Lee.
Jung and Tae-ho are each taken off the case. It is reassigned to OH DO-HWAN (Ha Joon), an ambitious prosecutor in the identical division. Jung shares his suspicions with Do-hwan, but the latter dismisses it. Appears like Do-hwan is prepared to do something to move up the ladder promptly, even if it indicates prosecuting the incorrect particular person and letting the genuine murderer escape. In a flashback, Do-hwan is shown to have produced a deal with Deputy Chief Lee, even negotiating a greater reward for himself to do the dirty function. The case promptly goes to court and the incorrect suspect is sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Ah-ra confronts Do-hwan, accusing him of becoming a rotten human becoming regardless of becoming a talented prosecutor, just as Jung arrives. Do-hwan paints a dark image of the reality of the prosecutor’s workplace: a corrupt spot exactly where only these with funds and connections manage the energy. A rotten spot exactly where the righteous Jung does not match in.
Rebutting, Jung tells him he knows the truth, but he’s just playing dumb. “You know what the genuine concern is? You preserve crossing the line just due to the fact I select to play dumb. In this case, you crossed it large time. That is why I’m going to take all of you down.” Then he promptly punches Do-hwan. Oof!
Of course, his action comes with consequences. Deputy Chief Lee catches him mid-punch, so Jung is promptly kicked out and sent to the Civil Affairs Division — the so-known as “garbage disposal office” due to the fact it is exactly where delinquent prosecutors are sent to make them quit. There, he meets messy-seeking PARK JAE-KYUNG (Kim Sang-ho), head of the Civil Affairs Division. He’s chill, and he’s accepted his position in the prosecution. In reality, he almost certainly got the head position due to the fact he’s been there the longest.
At evening, Jung sets up a trap for illegal taxi solutions. A taxi driver is taking a quiet lady residence, but Jung seems to inspect the car for illegal taxi solutions. It turns out the “woman” is Chul-gi in complete disguise, total with complete makeup, lacy blouse, and sparkly skirt — and he gets ideal into a street chase. Damn, I enjoy these partners in anti-crime crime!
Apparently, this incident was merely supposed to be a public service, a single of a lot of Jung’s been tasked to do because joining the Civil Affairs Division. Other ~significant~ activities contain investigating an affair, chasing a runaway dog, and taking care of drunk citizens — just like a glorified chauffeur.
But of course, although Jung is performing these mundane tasks, he and Chul-gi continue to investigate the murder case. And stars align for him, due to the fact when he goes to pay a visit to the taxi driver once more, he discovers new information about the murder victim. Following threatening to drop him off the balcony, Jung discovers the victim operates as a hostess. And they get a new lead: the hostess bar owner who appears connected to Deputy Chief Lee.
Bringing out his aces, Jung calls for the aid of his “gang”: badass lady gangster BAEK EUN-JI (Joo Bo-young) and genius hacker GO JOONG-DO (Lee Shi-un), the latter who operates for Jung merely to get his indictments removed. In an elaborate scheme to collect proof, the pair encounters a handful of hiccups (acquiring caught in a lie, Joong-do acquiring hit with a taser, and Joong-do acquiring kicked), but they do succeed in gathering proof.
Later, in a secret hacker lair, Eun-ji and Joong-do meet up with Jung and Chul-gi to overview the proof. Apparently, Deputy Chief Lee was caught on cam soliciting the solutions of hostesses. Oof, that is why he desires this case closed speedy!
Although Jung is attempting to negotiate with the hostess bar owner, prosecutors arrive with a search and seizure warrant, allegedly from the incident at the extremely starting of the drama. Jae-kyung appears to come to his rescue, but he promptly offers up. Oof. So Jung ends up in the custody of the prosecution.
Meanwhile, as she’s reporting to Tae-ho, Ah-ra witnesses Deputy Chief Lee slap Tae-ho on the face, threatening to eliminate the latter from workplace when the former gets his promotion. So she breaks Jung out, ultimately deciding to function with each other with him, even if they do every little thing his way this time.
Jung is ready, due to the fact he had Eun-ji and Joong-do tail the hostess bar owner, but he has currently escaped. No matter — Jung has a backup program: he has planted a tracker on the hostess bar owner, so they’re capable to promptly adhere to him to the pier exactly where he plans to escape. But he just left the tracker on a truck. Nooo. It is the corrupt and ambitious Do-hwan who identified it, sending the hostess bar owner away on a flight to Shanghai.
Ah-ra is prepared to give up, but Jung says he has a way. How? By claiming there’s a bomb on the plane. Flight grounded! (Do not do this at residence, guys.) Spotting the hostess bar owner attempting to escape, Jung, Chul-gi and Ah-ra chase him across the locked down airport, apprehending him soon after he threatens to kill an innocent bystander. Regrettably for Jung, the airport safety tracks him down and arrests him for his bomb contact prank.
At his reporter-filled promotion ceremony, Deputy Chief Lee is delivering his speech when he abruptly gets shocked by a pinch on his leg. It is Jung hiding underneath the podium! LOL, this crazy bastard.
Jung addresses the media, promising to reveal the corruption and evilness of the prosecution and sending them into a frenzy. Every person goes crazy when Jung promptly arrests Deputy Chief Lee, charging him with the murder of the hostess.
Wow, what an opening week! I enjoy the tone: it began powerful with the fantastic introduction to our hero. These 1st handful of minutes completely encapsulated just how conniving Jung’s character is, and I enjoy it. I missed seeing D.O. on screen, and he’s performing a great job as usually! We got great introductions to the rest of the characters as properly, but no a single is capturing my consideration like D.O. and Yeon Joon-seok are. Perhaps the other individuals just didn’t have adequate screen time but. Or perhaps I’m just loving these partners in anti-crime crime — in particular how shameless the two of them are about doling out threats to get what they want.
Although we’re dealing with crime and corruption, the show was capable to preserve points humorous and entertaining — I just hope it does not finish up becoming also procedural. So far, it does not look like it is going to be a single case per week, but rather that the large case tackled all through the whole drama will be exposing the corruption of the prosecution — the extremely workplace Jung joined. Properly, no matter what, I’m certain sticking about for the hilarious character of Jung. Hold becoming exciting, Show!
