Special Appearance[edit]

Production[edit]

  • Han Ji-min was offered the leading role but she declined.
  • Two Cops serves as the second production of People Story Company (the company behind The Emperor: Owner of the Mask).[7]
  • The series is based on a script by Byun Sang-soon which was one of the winners of the 2016 KBS TV Drama Miniseries Competition.[8][9] The series was planned for broadcast on KBS 2TV as a prize for winning the competition, but due to disagreements between KBS, People Story Company and writer Byun, it was shelved[7] before MBC decided to pick the series up for broadcast. Instead, KBS 2TV aired Don't Trust Her (later re-titled as Witch at Court).
