Mi-Young, who used to be considered the Major Crimes Unit's top cop, is stationed behind a desk after having a baby. She leads uneventful yet peaceful days at handling civil complaints and looking after her son and unemployed husband at home. One day, an overly enthusiastic detective Ji-Hye, is consigned to Mi-Young's team, and they bicker over every little thing from the moment they meet. In fact, they are sisters-in-law, and neither are happy about sitting next to each other all day in the same office. But differences are pushed aside when a woman who came to file a report gets run over in front of Mi-Young and Ji-Hye. They discover that the woman is the victim of 'spy cam porn' and was threatened it would go up on a community site in three days. The two cops take the case, but due to workload, no one can handle it in time. Ji-Hye's burning passion for justice rekindles Mi-Young's sense of duty, and the two decide to take matters into their own hands.Written by

I think that the 2019 movie "Geol kapseu" (aka "Mrs. and Miss Cops") was quite entertaining, and it was very much a movie that embodied everything that the South Korean cinema does best.
Writer and director Jung Da-Won ensured that the movie held enough parts of comedy, action and thrills to make it an interesting movie from start to end. So there is essentially a little bit of something for just everyone to be had here in the movie. I particularly liked how the comedy aspects of the movie were kept subtle, as such the movie didn't crash over and became a full-out comedy.
And the lead actresses Mi-ran Ra (playing Mi-Young) and Song-Kyoung Lee (playing Ji-Hye) were so well-cast for these roles and they performed wonderfully throughout the movie. They definitely had a great on-screen chemistry. And I must say that the movie had such a wonderful character gallery, that you just can't help but come to love and adore.
Now, I mentioned that "Mrs. and Miss Cops" embodies everything that is good about the South Korean cinema, but I can't really put that into a more descriptive manner, because there is just something unique about the South Korean cinema, and they make these light-hearted action comedies phenomenally, and "Mrs. and Miss Cops" were no exception.
I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and was entertained from the very beginning and up to the end.
If you enjoy the South Korean cinema, then you definitely have to take the time to sit down and watch "Mrs. and Miss Cops" if you have the chance.
My rating for the movie is a solid six out of ten stars.
