Police Unit 38 will lie, cheat, or swindle you for your taxes

If only there were enforcers as scary-looking as Ma Dong-seok (Bad Guys) going after rich people for not paying their taxes in real life, people might follow the rules. Though I think the point Police Unit 38 is making with its first teaser is that the usual tactics don’t work against these people, which is why you need to resort to drastic measures. Enter Seo In-gook (I Remember You), a master con artist who’s going to start using his evil powers for good as a member of a special task force that goes after tax evaders.

The new OCN police comedy comes from the writer of Bad Guys and Vampire Prosecutor and the PD of Hidden Identity, and tells the story of a very specific police unit designed to go after people who try and skirt their taxes. The drama’s title is named after Article 38 (legal code referring to tax payment) and has the word “con” built into it, in a pun. That’s because they’re going to employ some underhanded tricks to get these people to pay up.

Ma Dong-seok plays the upright chief of the unit, an honest and hardworking tax collector who truly believes in equality. In the teaser as rich people are tearing him to shreds, he narrates, “Whether you’re [born with] a golden spoon or a dirt spoon, let’s just do one thing — pay our taxes — fairly!” Even his character’s name, Baek Sung-il, is a pun on “the people” (baeksung).

Sooyoung (My Spring Days) plays a civil servant in the same department who always follows the rules and acts according to logic. The pot-stirrer will be smooth-talking con artist Seo In-gook, who sidles up to Ma Dong-seok in the teaser and calls him a frustrating ajusshi. With a cheeky smile, he offers to go get that tax money owed like it’d be the easiest thing in the world. The teaser closes on the tagline: “I will con you to the end and collect!” I have a feeling that snazzy-suit-wearing young man is up to no good, even if he’s working with the good guys, but somehow I don’t seem to care.

Police Unit 38 will air on Saturdays and Sundays after Vampire Detective, and premieres June 18.

Seo In Guk just pulls off suits magnificently. I loved the way he was styled in I Remember You and I have a feeling I'll love his clothing in this too.
And gosh, I could listen to him talk all day, kept replaying his part in the teaser. He looked super sexy loosening his tie!

I was thinking this is the Korean, Tax Evasion version of White Collar. Seo In-Gook's character even makes me think of Matt Bomer's character.

Yeah,me too. Even though i've not watched Catch Me If You Can(my sister did) and only watched the (incomplete)first season of White Colar job,I always love this kinds of storylines,will surely get back to those.
Can you believe that I've only heared of Seo In Gook and have never watched anything with him in it except for that Oh My Ghostess cameo,but get excited anytime his name pops up in an up-coming drama or movie? Its the same with Lee Min Ki,Song Joon Ki,Yoo Ah In and a few others too(can you believe it? I really need to start watching something). I'm desperately looking for A Warewolf Boy(Korean movies,so hard to find) and SKKS before sinking into Secret Love Affair and Six Flying Dragons.

THIS TEAM.

They're gonna start another awesome universe with great (morally questionable?) characters that will make you fall in love and want more.

Then they're gonna end the season on an open note.

Then they're gonna say "We swears we're planning to make another season. Soon. Sometime. Wait for it."

Then they're gonna make you wait years to meet said characters again.

Then they're gonna build another universe instead.

Gargle, rinse, repeat.

Tell me about it!
I have never had the chance to follow a Seo In Guk drama in real time. I watched King of HS last year and Reply 1997 this year. And then there was no looking back. I had found my ideal Kdrama guy.
So I am really looking forward to wait and watch each episode of this new drama in June. And also very excited to jump online to read all the comments that will flood the message board here at dramabeans (if they choose to recap it)
Fighting!

Seo In Guk!!!!!! I have been waiting so long for this! Thankyou GF for this trailer.

Btw has anyone else noticed that SIG is perhaps one of those few actors whose look really changes with the clothes he wears. if he wears formals, he looks suave, mature and sexy as hell. If he wears casuals, he looks like a cute though naughty teenager, and sexy as hell.

I know I said his look changes. But oh well! he really can't not look sexy.

Looking forward to stellar performance from the cast and hopefully (for SIG's sake) a hit show! IRY was so good but it did not get the ratings. SO I really hope Police Unit 38 does well in the ratings area!

Haha, no I haven't bookmarked that post and you probably don't wanna know what my newest google search entry is in order to find this gem. :-D

Oh, I'm actually Asian myself, not Korean, but I'm familiar with the nosebleed phenomenon though I grew up associating it with males getting it when seeing sexy women and not the other way around. lol

0

@Angie I can imagine what your search entry was. In fact I just tried it before typing this out :P

I am Asian too (Indian) but never heard of nosebleed (other than those associated with the illnesses caused by extreme weather). But then again Asia, and even India itself, is huge. This is a very interesting phenomenon though :)

1

I think it's an East Asian thing (I know it from watching Hong Kong comedies when I was little) and probably derived from anime since it's sooo random without any scientific proof whatsoever. lol

0

Lol it sure is random. But anything can happen in anime. It would be so funny (and embarrassing) if it was actually a real phenomenon. Oh maybe they could do a show on it- a la Pinocchio style. Only it would be funny rather than a serious condition.

Okay so i am in office and all I can come up with are these stupid possible kdrama ideas. Must focus. :P

The premise is a lot like White Collar which is one of the most fun tv series i have ever binge-watched. Sooooo excited for this cast. I really wish they will go White Collar route with slick fun cases and avoiding any dark secrets, birth secrets, or being too heavy in general.

Surely i am not the only one who wants cute bromance interaction from SIG & MDS or Sooyoung and SIG being sassy and flirty to each other right RIGHT?

If you wanna watch In Guk in his element, if you want to see his acting chops in action, try watching King of High School Savvy or Reply 1997.
