Shadow Detective: Episode 1 (First Impressions)

by solstices




Starting off with just the right dash of humor, Shadow Detective introduces us to our tenacious and competent hero with a slightly out-of-the-ordinary day that quickly escalates into a tragedy. Am I intrigued? Most definitely.

Editor’s note: If there is sufficient interest, drama coverage will continue with weekly Drama Hangouts.


In an amusing opening, police lieutenant KIM TAEK-ROK (Lee Sung-min) casually barricades a scammer in a convenience store with a toy sword. It’s the perfect introduction to our protagonist, who’s highly observant with a keen sense of intuition. With all the blasé banality of suggesting a lunch menu, Taek-rok hands out advice to the coworkers who seek him out for help, easily leading them straight to the heart of each case.

Our detective may be a seasoned veteran, but all those years on the field haven’t been easy. Back in his cramped goshiwon room, Taek-rok takes medicine for his panic disorder, and we see a notebook filled with tips on how to prevent dementia.


Taek-rok is pragmatic, which means he’s not all too enthused when newbie SOHN KYUNG-CHAN (Lee Hak-joo) trails after him like an adorable puppy. Kyung-chan has just been assigned to Taek-rok’s team, and his first mission is to stake out a drug dealer’s lair without blowing his cover. Unsurprisingly, skittish Kyung-chan gets caught barely a minute in, LOL.

He’s saved from getting his eyes poked out when teammate LEE SUNG-AH (Kyung Su-jin) fearlessly storms in, wielding a chair and taking out the men holding Kyung-chan hostage. (Kyung-chan quickly runs to hide behind her, aww.) Sung-ah makes quick work of the other lackeys, while the drug dealer makes his escape.


Of course, Taek-rok is waiting outside, and he gives the drug dealer a casual wave that suggests they’ve done this maybe fifteen times before. A hilarious chase scene ensues, since they’re both not very fast, hah. Then the drug dealer’s phone rings with a call — it’s Taek-rok, asking him to stop because he’s out of breath, LOL.

Neither wants to stop first, so they both end up counting to three. The moment they stop, they wheeze in lungfuls of air, just barely ten feet apart, and I’m wheezing too because I can’t hold in my laughter. Then the drug dealer takes off again, and Taek-rok chases after him but gets into a minor collision with a motorcyclist.


That’s how we get introduced to GUK JIN-HAN (Jin Gu), who asks if the escaping drug dealer is the culprit, then takes off running after him. Hah, does that mean he could have stepped in earlier, but decided to sit back, enjoy his lunch, and watch the chase play out?

Jin-han catches up in no time, tackling the drug dealer to the ground for Taek-rok to arrest. (LOL, Taek-rok collapses to the ground afterwards, so completely spent that the drug dealer even asks if he ought to call an ambulance for him.) His work done, Jin-han walks off with a casual salute to Taek-rok.

That very afternoon, Taek-rok and Jin-han cross paths again — Jin-han is the new section chief of Geumo police station. The reason for his transfer? He got demoted for talking back to his superior, hah.

Jin-han doesn’t mince his words with Taek-rok either, disparaging his age and advising him to retire from the field. But Taek-rok’s no pushover, and he gives as good as he gets. The pair may take jabs at each other, but there isn’t any hint of malice. On the contrary, they seem to find amusement in their verbal sparring.

Shadow Detective Ending Explained: Does Taek-rok Identify the ‘Friend’? Will There Be a Season 2?

Ashima Grover, November 17, 2022

After a short and precise run of eight episodes, the Shadow Detective Ending (형사록) has unfolded new mysteries while endangering the life of one of the major characters in the list. If you’ve already watched the show and are in search of some answers for the same due to overlapping events during the finale leaving you puzzled, then this is the right place for you.

However, if you’re yet to watch the series or the final episode, I suggest that you leave this page without ado. Here’s all that happened in the season 1 finale’s ending. Brace yourselves, it’s about to get emotional and heartbreaking.




The themes of regret and remorse are the primary driving forces of Shadow Detective Season 1, mostly manifested through Taek-rok’s character (Lee Sung-min). The veteran detective nearing retirement carries the burdens of some of his wrongdoings throughout his police career, and those scars traumatize him till the end. Believing that he’s unfit for the job due to the resulting inhibitions, he keeps blaming himself for almost everything bad that goes down around him.

He carries the load of his younger colleague, Hyun-seok’s death, his daughter’s early abduction, and the mental bruises that experience inflicted on her, not being able to solve a few cases in the past, thus incriminating the wrong person for the same and a lot more. On his guilt-ridden path, he barely has any comfort and support, but his team – Sung-a (Kyung Soo-jin) and Kyung-chan (Lee Hak-joo) – and the newcomer – Kook Jin-han (Jin Goo) – offer him some consoling relief, whether he accepts it or not.


His relationship with Jin-han is especially as complex as it can be. The last two episodes lend eye-opening revelations, digging deeper into the dynamics shared between them and further briefly probing their history. Hopefully, the following questions will clear most, if not all, of your doubts.


Who is the ‘Friend’?

Call it unfortunate or fortunate, but Jin-han was the ‘Friend’. However, since he was working under Chairman Jang to accomplish his motives against the corrupt ties between Geumo Police Force and the Development Committee, someone else may likely assume this identity next time around. In the first season, it was mainly Jin-han blackmailing Taek-rok, fueling the means to his ends, with his ultimate goal being to take down Chief Gwang-su.


Who is Chairman Jang?




At his previous station, Jin-han was just as keen on exposing the corrupt ties of the higher-ups, but the subject of his investigation was Chairman Jang. He promised the public that he would bring his wrongdoings to the forefront, and to do so, he joined forces with an insider, an accountant working with Jang at the time.

However, his informer is murdered as per Chairman Jang’s orders, under the guise of it being a suicide. Jin-han then gets reeled in by the Chairman, who blames him for this loss and further lures him into his scheme, using his ill son as bait. Jang promises him resources for his son’s treatment. Threatening his family was enough for him to have a strong hold on Jin-han, who was left with no choice but to work for him.


Jang offers him a final mission to accomplish, surrounding the Geumo police squad. He even calls this case a “matter of life and death” and proposes his promotion to the post of commissioner in return. And this is how Jin-han was compelled to blackmail Taek-rok as a means to reach Chief Gwang-su.


Does Taek-rok Confront Jin-han?


Taek-rok resolves Jin-han’s case using older case files. Receiving Hyun-seok’s burner phone at the tavern further helps him piece the puzzle together. Once he unlocks it, he finds video proof of Jin-han killing Hyun-seok and uses the same to lure him out, while Jin-han arrests Sung-a for withholding information on Taek-rok’s whereabouts after a ‘witness’ comes back with her statement, claiming Taek-rok to be the murderer.

In the end, both detectives decide to meet and settle the case once and for all. Jin-han provokes Chairman Jang as well and asserts that he’ll deal with Taek-rok on his own and end the matter for good. Once they meet, Taek-rok empathizes with Jin-han’s scenario and reminds him that he can still turn things around and go back to his family.
