Synopsis:
Takakura So witnessed his father's murder at a young age. Pledging to catch the killer, he grows up to become an elite cop in New York City, where the criminal lives. His character is cool-headed and disciplined, yet adapts well. Because of major drug dealings, he gets sent to Tokyo to conduct a joint investigation with the Japanese police. There, he gets teamed up with, Kudo Maruo, a detective from a special investigative division. Kudo is a hot-blooded fighting expert due to his earlier days as a delinquent, but he makes a strong impression with his stylish appearance and is always interested in going on group dates. His personality, interests, and investigation methods are completely mismatched with Takakura's, but the two somehow work together to crack the case they've been given. --Tokyograph

Cast:
credits: baidu
~Oguri Shun as Takakura Sou
Police Sergeant, New York City Police Department. An elite detective with a background in military-trained combat, who is pursuing Jinno, the boss of an international drug syndicate. He is taken off the case as the officer in charge because Jinno gets away but after he escorts Matsunaga Yuki, who holds the key to the case, to Tokyo, he remains in Tokyo and continues his investigation. He is serious, has a strong sense of justice, and is usually calm, cool and stoic. He has a good knowledge of military-trained combat but also has an inflexible, stubborn side. When he enters crime scenes, he goes on an offensive which makes him seem a reckless renegade to the Japanese police but all the actions are based on his personal experience. He is blunt and unsociable and bad at expressing himself. However, deep down he is a kind, gentlemanly guy who loves his mother and younger sister very much. He is proud and his assertive remarks often meet with strong opposition from the people around him, especially Kudo and Yuri. He has a direct, sincere manner of speaking but is at times prone to making silly mistakes. Because he has been away from Japan, he feels a little old fashioned and does not know much about colloquial language and other things. Cooking is his forte.

~Mizushima Hiro as Kudo Maruo
A detective with the Metropolitan Police Department’s Special Investigation Division. A former delinquent and leader of a motorcycle gang. However, he retires and undergoes rehabilitation because of his growing desire to be useful in society. He studies hard and becomes a police officer at the age of 20. He beats up the bad and works hard each day to stand by weak citizens but … his efforts are also often fruitless perhaps as a result of his hot-blooded nature. An expert in all martial arts such as karate, judo, and taekwondo. He sometimes knocks criminals about too much and complaints about him come in. He gets excited over everything and is warmhearted, cheerful and positive. Because of this big brother personality, there are many juniors from the local police precincts who adore and respect him. His interest is in dating parties. He is a flirtatious ladies man who has yet to meet his ideal female.


~Yoshitaka Yuriko as Matsunaga Yuki
A mysterious female who was standing in a daze at the crime scene of a drug syndicae that Sou and Maruo were pursuing in New York.

~Tanaka Yoshiko as Takakura Kyoko
[i]Her husband, a detective, died 17 years ago. After that, she raised Sou and Karin by herself. A kind, gentle and sincere person. However, she has an inner strength and was prepared that her son would be a detective. She does things at her own pace and because she calls Sou without hesitation, she seems quite a bother. But, she is, in fact, truly worried about Sou, and tries not to show it too much. She is from a well-off family and her present home used to be the home of her parents. She and her daughter, Karin, get along with each other like sisters.

the plot sounds kind of like the TW drama Black & White. Just the part about the two unlikely partners though. One the hero and the other the ruffian. Looking forward to it.
