‘Chief Detective 1958’ Episode 3 Recap: Did Park Young Han’s First Mission End Successfully?

The third episode began with Park Young Han introducing his team to his superior, Chief Yu Dae Cheon, who seemed impressed with his lineup of new detectives.

Meanwhile, they were given a new task: clearing Jongnam’s market from beggars who were causing disturbance.

Instead of arresting these beggars, Park Young Han asked them to be his ears and eyes for any criminals that they would spot in the neighborhood.

As a reward, Park Young Han would give them food, so there’s no need for them to steal.

Just as he thought that the beggars would be useful, he recommended them to the team when they were given their first big task involving the bank robbery.

Park Young Han and the team studied the group’s movement and predicted that they would rob Jongnam’s bank within the week.

Among the preparations they made was to brief the beggars regarding suspicious people lurking within the area.

Lo and behold, the robbers targeted Jongnam’s bank. Kim Sang Soon posed as the bank’s guard to keep civilians safe.
