Gapdong Quotes & Narration
Based on true life story of Hwaseong serial murder cases, this crime thriller drama will follow the journey of homicide detectives, a genius barista & Webtoon writer to catch the real killer (nickname: Gapdong-yi) as he returns to make another serial killing 20 years after this murder case was closed after it reached its statue of limitation (although more than 2 million police officers dealt with this case annually but the real killer has never been captured. They believe he’s likely a psychopath).
Detective Ha Mu Yeom (Yoon Sang Hyun) is in charge of this investigation alongside Chief Detective Yang Chul Gon (Sung Dong Il). Detective Ha Mu Yeom has a painful history with Gapdong-yi, his father was the suspected Gapdong-yi and he committed suicide. Hence once Mu Yeom finds out that this serial killer returns to the crime scene, he is using all possible avenues to find & capture him. Chief Dectective Yang Chul Gon was the detective when Gapdongyi committed his serial murder cases 20 years ago, so he’s also has a lot of grudges with this mysterious killer. Will these two detectives able to capture Gapdong-yi although 2 million police officers weren’t unable to do that 20 years ago? Only time will tell.
Meanwhile, Ryoo Tae Oh (Lee Joon) is a barista with an IQ of >150. With his photographic memory, he’ll be a great assistant to Detective Ha Mu Yeom & Chief Detective Yang Chul Gon. But beware, he also has a psychopath side!
