We love that the lead girl for this new drama seems to lean on the usual prototypes of K-drama heroines. Yet Yoo Ri’s persona fits effortlessly because of the vibrant portrayal of Kim So Eun. The tough police officer cutely meddles if she comes across any social injustice, and feeds stray cats on the side. She’s definitely worth being a girl crush!

After Yoo Ri overhears Oh Soo’s conversation with his brother that his shared kiss with her means nothing, their connection drops a bit. To redeem her pride she pesters him to think of a way so that they will get even with the accidental kiss she gave him.
When Yoo Ri chases after a thief, Oh Soo follows behind. They engage in their usual bickering as she demands him to think of how she can compensate him. She then suggests money so he peers at her and asks how much her kiss costs.
Yoo Ri gropes for words as watching fans fainted. Oh Soo ups his game, cornering her underneath a street lamp, and declares he will just return back the kiss she stole.
