2014. The capital of South Korea, Seoul, is portrayed to be a halcyon, prosperous, economic hub at the forefront of the urbanizing Korean Peninsula. On the contrary, beneath its glittery façade, the citizens of Seoul are subject to the tyranny of its capitalist government and domineering high society.
As a wave of brutal crimes threaten to disrupt the aristocratic regime, a task force is formed within the Seoul Metropolitan Police is created to ensure Seoul rests within the fists of the aristocrats. The newly constructed task force, consisting of the perceptive Psychology professor Song Joongki, the stoic medical researcher Lee Soohyuk, the enigmatic I.T. genius and hacker Lee Jongsuk, the dexterous forensic pathologist Baek Jinhee, the new but adept prosecutor investigator Kim Woobin, is led by the seasoned, veteran detective Kim Soohyun to crack the cases.
However, the team soon discover themselves in a blazing inferno of staggering deceit, grotesque murders and scheming aristocrats--- Will they be able to withstand the battle and stabilize justice in their tattered city? Will they become pawns on the chessboard, or will they crack the game against the blue bloods?

the author's note
Sorry to keep you waiting, but yes, finally I'm back with a solid mystery fiction. I took the time to list out all the cases because I have planned each and every one of them already. Now, all that's left is to write them. The characters are original, the plot is original, and everything has been planned to detail because i'm pretty determined to get this one right. Do check out the soundtrack as well. I picked songs with lyrics that would match the plot itself.
Some of you must be pretty boggled about the actors and actresses used. Well, I thought they would suit the characters I thought of best, so I picked them. Furthermore, it's more flexible to use personas who don't exactly have a fixed image in one's mind. As for the main pairings, there are five guys and I don't intend for the majority to fall for Jinhee. This is not a harem story. There are other girls in the story for a reason. But for now, I will keep the final pairings a secret.
Warning: If you read TPM and expected something just as light-hearted, this is not for you. This story is much darker, much more frustrating and (hopefully) much closer to reality. The main genres might be mystery, friendship and all the routine stuff, but I think the main thing this story will capitalize on is the idea of change. I'd like to expound, but I guess it would become clearer as the story progresses.
P.S. Everyone will be referred to by their real names, e.g. Luna will be Park Sunyoung. This is all with the exception of the first case, where Kim Kibum/Key will be referred to as Key due to him having the same name as SuJu's Kim Kibum, and Park Sooyoung/Joy will be referred to as Joy, because her name similar to SNSD's Choi Sooyoung.
Well, that's it for now. If you have any queries, feel free to comment/wall-post/PM me, or reach me on Twitter @thecandyce or my ask.fm at ask.fm/thecandyce, or my instagram @laurahokijanto. Hope you all will enjoy this story!
