Park Young Han and the rest of the team were going against influential people.

The episode continued with Young Han’s attempt to trap Jung Hee Sung, who was attempting to kill his friend and sole witness, Nam Jung Gil.

Team 1 successfully arrested Hee Sung, the son of the police commander. Park Young Han also recommended charging him with murder and assault by victimizing a number of women.

However, Baek Do Seok attempted to intimidate Young Han to cover up Hee Sung’s crime, but this time, the senior detective managed to get hold of witnesses to attest to the claims against Chief Baek.

The said witness was Jung Gil, whom they were able to convince to speak up but who expressed his fear towards Hee Sung’s father.

However, Young Han assured that he would be protected and put Hee Sung behind bars.

While team 1 was planning how to capture Chief Baek, Do Seok is negotiating with Jung Gil’s father, asking him about a huge sum of money, and in return, he would give his son’s freedom.

The father accepted his request but released an order to his men to kill Baek Do Seok.

At the hospital, an inspector was stunned to see Jung Pil missing. He alerted Park Young Han and Jongnam Police to begin their hunt.
