Online, Kang Dae-man is a popular true crime blogger. But in real life, he runs a comic book shop, is always scolded by his wife and assumes the role of a glorified babysitter. His only joy is hanging around the local police station and interfering with ongoing police investigations. Nicknamed “the White Shark,” homicide veteran detective Noh Tae-su was a legend in his heyday before being demoted to work under his junior. Then one day, a horrific murder takes place and Dae-man’s friend and Noh’s partner Joon-su is framed for it! Not wanting to see Joon-su rot in prison for 30 years, Dae-man and Noh have no choice but to partner up and uncover the plot behind the murder. As more bodies surface without any solid connection between them, the two men know that they are running out of time…
The film screens along with its sequel The Accidental Detective 2: In Action.
