The Main Cast

Powering the film are respected and talented actors portraying detectives disguising as chicken restaurant crew members. Ryu Seung Ryong (Miracle in Cell No. 7) portrays Chief Go, a resolute but under-performing cop who invested his retirement fund into the fried chicken business.

His team consists of unreliable Detective Jang (Lee Hanee) and the determined goal-setter Detective Young-ho (Lee Dong Hwi). Rounding up the cop team are the youngest, enthusiastic Detective Jae Hoon (Gong Myung), and Detective Ma (Jin Sun Kyu) who used his parents’ chicken recipe, making their restaurant famous. Together, the five of them fry chicken in the morning and fight crime in the evening.
