Detective K and his loyal sidekicks Seo-pil return in this sequel to the 2011 hit film Detective K: Secret of the Virtuous Wido.

To solve the case, he enters a world of intrigue populated by gun-wielding courtesans and murderous bandits, but what he finds is an even darker mystery when the bodies of young slave girls wash up on the shore. Can Detective K solve the mysteries with his trademark inventiveness and bring the criminals to justice?
