Squad 38 (aka Task Force 38 aka Police Unit 38. Sidenote: commit to a freakin’ English title, aigoo) follows Baek Sung Il (Ma Dong Seok), a tax collections government worker who spends his time hunting down those guilty of tax evasion. His department shows up at offices and homes, distributing seizure sticker notices on valuables all up in the place. Those moments are often met with some resistance.
Dream job, right?
Squad 38’s got a fresh energy to it; its slick, it’s dirty, and I like it.
It’s a new day when the family man whose occupation is to seize the scammers, gets scammed himself.
Add a freshly incarcerated con man to the mix, one bribed official too many (your own boss!), and a filthy businessman who keeps showing up and mangling all of your diligent, law-abiding efforts.
