Storyline

Veteran detective Sang-gil and beat cop Eun-yeong are in charge of a case that seems to involve a simple act of self-immolation. Sang-gil initially thinks that it was an accident, but dog bite marks discovered on the body lead him to believe that someone had terrorized and murdered the victim. He and Eun-yeong investigate the source of the drugs found in the body and discover the victim had been pimping out young girls. At the same time, another murder involving a wolf-dog crossbreed occurs The two cases are labeled serial killings. With a connection between the victims uncovered, Sang-gil and Eun-yeong track down a potential witness. While questioning her, one of the mysterious dogs strikes out of the blue, killing the witness and stunning the cops. Written by CJ Entertainment

Weak female lead..
18 August 2015 | by prettybutterflySee all my reviews

The plot was a little too far-fetched and the sexism ruined the film for me. The way the female detective was treated in this film was pretty vile. You can tell it was written and directed by men. The story had promise, but once it unfolded it was a little too unbelievable. I wanted to see the female at some point take charge and not sit back and allow herself to be physically and mentally abused by her male counterparts. It was obvious that she was more intelligent than the guys around her, yet she continued to allow them to ridicule her and treat her poorly. Perhaps this film needs to be remade with a strong female lead.
