It was a comedy movie, but I felt a big lump in my throat and a pain in my heart.
Miss & Mrs. Cops is a 2019 action-comedy film. Mi-Yeong is a former police squad officer who starts working at the Public Service Center after her wedding. Ji-Hye is Mi-Yeong's sister-in-law as well as a rookie policewoman who works at the same center. They team up to solve the case of a young woman committing suicide and they discover a network of young men who drug, rape, and film women and then upload the videos of rape on the internet for money. As the higher-ranking police officers stay idle and refuse to help, the two women, with the assistance of a female hacker, start to round up the gang on their own accord.
I mentioned that I felt pain because as the story went on, I remember the biggest issue in South Korea in 2019. The scandal led Seungri of Big Bang, Jung Joon Hyung, and other artists/politicians/businessmen to be questioned and be in custody. I immediately thought of their victims. How were they able to cope with these "big" people in the industry?
I am not Korean, but I felt pain for the girls. In real life, we don't have any idea how many women became a victim of drug-rape cases. We'll never know if someone really helped them. It's not just in Korea, but I am speaking for the whole world.

The movie is a comedy but a painful eye-opener of how the world sees women. Even nowadays when everyone should be equal, there are still quite a few people who see women as someone who can only do house chores, nothing more than that.
I felt kind of annoyed with the male detectives with how they treated miss as she was the only woman in their team. They didn't verbally attack her, but with their looks and faces, you know and feel what they really wanted to say.
In the movie, the two protagonists were passionate about their jobs that even if the miss is suspended and the missus has been away from being a special task force for a long time, they still decided to help the girl who went to their helpdesk because no one was willing to help.

I can't help but compare it to real life. Who helps these women? I suddenly wished that the women in the Miss & Mrs. Cops were real people who are willing to sacrifice their own life for the sake of justice. I also like how all of the women in the movie joined forces in the end. It was oddly satisfying to watch.
Anyway, I also had fun watching Yoon Sang Hyun as his character is innocently hilariously in the drama. It's far-fetched from the roles I saw him before and he did very well.
The comedy scenes weren't cringy and look natural and the same goes for the action scenes. This is not something that I'd watch on the big screen, though, but it's definitely worth the time.
