Detectives in Trouble (Hangul: 강력반; RR: Gangryeokban; lit. Crime Squad) is a 2011 South Korean police procedural television series starring Song Il-gook, Lee Jong-hyuk, Song Ji-hyo, Park Sun-young, Jang Han-sun, Sung Ji-ru and Kim Joon. It aired on KBS2 from March 7 to April 26, 2011 on Mondays and Tuesdays at 21:55 for 16 episodes.



Based on real-life cases, this Korean drama focuses on a group of detectives in the Seoul Gangnam Police Homicide Division who solve crimes with their variety of skills and investigative methods. At the forefront of the team is the hotheaded detective Park Se-hyuk and the cold, commanding police chief, Jung Il-do. Se-hyuk's impulsive, act-first-think-later methods, instincts honed on the streets, and pesky habit of threatening resignation clashes with his superior Il-do's strict, by-the-book style. The two also share a painful past, with Il-do being the detective on the case involving the death of Se-hyuk's daughter. Along with tenacious reporter Jo Min-joo and the rest of the homicide squad, they must now overcome their differences to solve crimes together.
