The Korean drama “Flex X Cop” starring Ahn Bo Hyun and Park Ji Hyun has started airing and is available to watch on Disney+. The first and second episodes are released and here is the recap.
In the first episode of “Flex X Cop,” we are introduced to Yi-soo, a carefree and wealthy young man. He receives a message about a kidnap case and decides to play the role of a cop. However, things take a turn when his best friend, Hyung-wan, gets assaulted by the real killer.
Yi-soo, who is wearing a cop uniform, is mistaken as the criminal and arrested by Kang-hyun, one of the police officers. Despite his attempts to explain the situation, Yi-soo is sent to jail, causing problems for his father’s election campaign.
Kang-hyun realizes her mistake when she finds evidence at the arrest spot that Yi-soo was telling the truth. To cover up the mistake, she announces to the press that Yi-soo was capturing the culprit and will be joining the police. In the second episode, we see a flashback revealing that Yi-soo agreed to join the police force to protect his elder brother’s reputation.
However, his colleagues, including Kang-hyun, are not interested in him. Yi-soo disrupts the police station by throwing a dinner feast and transforming his workspace into a gaming setup. Kang-hyun tries to give him boring tasks to make him quit, but Yi-soo excels at them.
They receive a murder case, and Yi-soo uses his influence to gain access to the restricted area. He eventually finds a clue that leads them to a famous agency. Kang-hyun takes Yi-soo to the agency to gather information, but she leaves him on the street.
Yi-soo meets his friend, who encourages him to find the murderer. Determined to prove himself, Yi-soo takes up the challenge and makes a bet with Kang-hyun. At the autopsy room, he experiences a panic attack but hides it from Kang-hyun. They receive the autopsy report with some clues.
Yi-soo identifies a man in the CCTV footage and tries to share a rumor he heard at the agency, but the cops ignore him. He recognizes a location in a photo and confronts the man, Taeyong. A fight ensues, and Kang-hyun arrives to help. Yi-soo and Kang-hyun must now defeat Taeyong’s men together.
