Bad and Crazy episode 1-6 discussion post

Soo Yeol, the competent ‘bad boy’ on the police squad, regains his humanity after meeting ‘K’, the righteous but ‘crazy’ guy. Despite having a mere high school diploma, Soo Yeol is an accomplished member of the drug squad. He’s ambitious, so he chooses pet cases of his superiors and produces their desired outcomes. Often that means turning a blind eye to injustice, especially if it stands in the way of those preferred results.
With promotion time looming and without anyone’s backing, Soo Yeol fears exclusion once again. Congressman Do Yoo Gon had given him some hope of advancement but dashed when the righteous but crazy ‘K’ entered his life.
What can go wrong when the ‘bad boy’ and the ‘crazy’ guy join forces?
Lee Dongwook, Wi Hajoon, Han Ji Eun, VIXX N (Cha Hakyeon)

[Reasons to watch]
1-Copious amounts of Lee Dongwook and Wi Hajoon flirting and shirtlessness. Bad and Crazy, more like Bad and Tiddies.
2-Buddy cop dynamics.
3-Humor with a dash of murder mystery and intrigue.

[Skip it if]

1-Violence. Not really gorey but people get beat up a lot and there are some graphic scenes.
2-Campy over-the-top fight scenes.
3-Not medically accurate depictions of mental health (I have to be vague in case people aren't past episode 2).
