Ma is thwarted on her path to success due to a case gone awry and is demoted to the department for crimes related to women and children, where she works alongside Yeo, who volunteered for the department.

Penned by Jung Do-yoon (“The Time We Were Not in Love,” 2015) and directed by Kim Young-gyoon (“Like a Fairy Tale,” 2013), the show began airing on KBS on Oct. 9.
