In the broadcast on this day, the icon of reverse driving, Brave Girls, Interpol of the National Police Agency, investigators responsible for serious incidents, translators, and producers from conflict areas appeared. Together with Yoo Jae-seok and Jo Se-ho, they talked about their lives running without giving up until the end with passion and spirit.
Jeon Jae-hong, a police officer, told the story of working with 194 countries to track down criminals to the end of the earth. His strong sense of responsibility, which is struggling to realize justice, attracted attention. Jeong Hee-seok talked about his life as a serious investigator. From unforgettable child abuse cases to tips as a veteran detective, he drew attention.
Translator Sung Gwi-soo himself was surprised by sharing the world’s first strong sense of calling that translated the entire collection of Lupin in search of the disappearing manuscript of “Ghost Lupin.” Kim Young-mi told an extraordinary episode of her life as a producer specializing in conflict areas. The story of yourself, who considers his trauma his destiny and runs for the right to know society, added to the touching feeling.
Finally, the Brave Girls, who are writing a reverse driving myth, drew tears and laughter by honestly revealing their busy status from the movie-like story that they thought about disbanding, to the moment they really wanted to give up, just before the video came up.
Producer Kim Min-seok, who directed the production, said, “It seems that the patience of the investigators, Interpol, documentary PD in conflict areas, Lupin translators, and Brave Girls has been sympathized with many of you who must go to the end.”
“I really appreciate the viewers,” he said. “The story of Brave Girls’ driving back was very touching to me, too. Just as the junior PD wrote the caption, “The dust that was scattered bloomed with flowers,” I think the moments of joy did not come suddenly, but had to wait a little long time to bloom. I hope you continue to do well in the future.
