"Police University" gave viewers an intense and remarkable episode during its broadcast on August 10.
The drama became a hot topic after the students set foot in Korean National Police University. As the viewers get to know the characters, secrets after secrets are being revealed.
Yoo Dong Man Welcomes Kang Seon Ho, Oh Kang Hee, and Others to Hell
Though Yoo Dong Man (Cha Tae Hyun) blatantly tells Kang Seon Ho (Jinyoung) that he isn't fit to become a police officer, and he should just throw his dream of becoming one, Kang Seon Ho was still admitted to the university after his final interview, along with his fellow police aspirants.
But the detective and professor wouldn't just let him off the hook easily as he volunteered to train the students in the "Chungram Training" which will test their agility, vigor, and physical fitness.

The troop was divided into three units where Park Min Kyu (Chu Young Woo), Oh Kang Hee (Krystal), and Kang Seon Ho (Jinyoung) acted as the units' respective captains.
During their orientation, a possible love triangle was hinted at when Park Min Kyu offered to carry Oh Kang Hee's suitcase.
In the university, their physical fitness and mental stability were put to the test many times, but like a real police officer, one must not falter.
Oh Kang Hee Becomes Kang Seon Ho's Inspiration During His Struggle
Kang Seon Ho's (Jinyoung) self-esteem, physical fitness, and mental stability were not only tested during the vigorous training but it was also tested by his nemesis and professor, detective Yoo Dong Man (Cha Tae Hyun). Yoo Dong Man, with his grudge against Kang Seon Ho, makes his life more difficult than it already is. The detective gives him the harshest and coldest treatment he could ever give to one of his subordinates.
Though facing a difficult time inside the university away from his family, Kang Seon Ho receives comfort from his fellow police student, the one who makes his heart beat, Oh Kang Hee (Krystal). His desire to be like the other strong and warm-hearted unit captains was strong, and it took its toll on his head, making him doubt his own capabilities. But the sweet Judo girl appeases him by enumerating the characteristics that make him shine and stand out. With this, Kang Seon Ho's desire and determination to become a police officer grew stronger.
Revelations and Secrets Unfold Before Cha Tae Hyun
Despite Yoo Dong Man's rough and unlikeable facade, he is forgiving and empathetic after letting Kang Seon Ho and his brother off at the police station for their criminal act of stealing from illegal gamblers.
Much to Kang Seon Ho's dismay, the detective's hatred and vendetta against him became bigger after the Yoo Dong Man figured out that Kang Seon Ho didn't just steal once, but twice. "Doing it once was a mistake, the second time is easy. But on the third, you will never feel guilt anymore."
The words pierced right through Kang Seon Ho, who immediately knelt and asked for forgiveness and a second chance. But the disappointed detective thought he was through with chances and walked out. Yoo Dong Man's last straw was to not get stuck as a professor in the university and go back to the precinct as a respectable detective and police officer was his online hacker friend named "Yoon." "Yoon" could be the answer to his problems: the one who'll help him catch illegal online gamblers and redeem himself.
