'38 Police Squad' has finally drawn to a close, and as I expected, everything was resolved perfectly.

The squad did have a backup plan going on, though Jung Do had to offer himself up as the martyr in the process. With an illegal funding scam that killed four birds (Ahn Jae Wook, Choi Chul Woo, Sa Jae Sung, and Chun Gap Soo) with one stone, Jung Do & Co. set things right once and for all. The drama tried to fool us once again into believing that things were going terribly awry, but after being tricked for the past 15 episodes, I refused to fall for the ruse. 

When you think that things are going to sh*t...

Nahhhh Sung Il's got everything under control! 

Lo and behold, the squad did it once again. With the help of former enemy Ma Jin Seok, the crew snatched $10 million right from under Choi Chul Woo's nose and placed it into Chun's unwitting hands. And boom! You've got another successful scam from our favorite crew. 

I thought the drama couldn't have a more perfect ending, with Chun Gap Soo admitting to his wrongs to the world, he and Sung Il finally achieving closure regarding Min Shik's death, Choi Chul Woo paying his backed up taxes of $100 million, and justice being served all around. 

Bad at being a father...bad at his job...#sadlife #trustory 

'38 Police Squad' was a very feel-good story which gave hope to the working people that the Sung Il's of the world do, in fact, exist, and that they are doing all that they can to be the people's voice. Though reality may not be as sunny as the drama lets on, it was heartwarming to watch all the same for all its crazy plot twists, the friendship, and its overall positive message. 

There were some unanswered questions as well. We never found out what happened to the intern who had his head bashed in by Bang Pil Gyu's son, Mayor Chun and Sung Hee's strained, strictly business relationship still teeter precariously on the verge of breaking, we didn't find out what happened to Dami and her grandfather, and Sung Hee and Jung Do never truly reconciled. Oh, and we still don't really know this Chairman Wang and how Jung Do became so close to him during their time together in jail. 

That's right, I gotcha you old geyser! 

Then I realized that not everything in life is so lucid, and people don't always get a happy ending. That's just how it is. Plus, the drama's focus was on Sung Il to finish the work Min Shik started, and he ended up doing just that...and more. So I'm okay with the unanswered questions.

Any crime drama with Ma Dong Suk will always turns out great. I love him. Highly recommend his "Bad Guys" drama with Park Hae Jin also.

After all this drama's success how can people not recognize sunbin at "I can see your voice 3" when she went there as a participant?

Sorry but 8 is too low for this masterpiece; this drama was gold and after finishing it I find a lot of the other dramas I am watching lacking in everything, especially a good plot. Every episode, I was at the edge of my seat, and this finale hit the nail in the head. It was really sad to see jung do end up in jail again, but that doesn't take away from how great of drama this was, instead it signifies why it's such a great drama because they were willing to go to such lengths in order to let justice prevail. All in all, will miss this one dearly.

But I just have one question, why did it end like that? does Baek sung Il have a twin or was he just pretending?

Probably A Easter egg. You know bad guys.

It will be hilarious if they did a crossover special.

The End
