Eun Dae Gu (Lee Seung Gi), Uh Soo Sun (Go Ah Ra), Park Tae Il (Ahn Jae Hyun) and Ji Gook (Park Jung Min) - otherwise known as the P4 - are the new recruits in the violent crime unit at Gangnam Police Station. These rookies are neither enthusiastic nor passionate about their new jobs and have joined the crime squad for varying but unbefitting reasons. They are led by an erratic and hot headed Seo Pan Suk (Cha Seung Won) who wants nothing more than to wash his hand off of the incompetent new recruits. You're All Surrounded follows the journey of these young cops as they fumble, learn, fall in love and find their way to becoming people the citizens can trust.

I'm loving this show!
Go Ah Ra is so funny as Uh Soo Sun and Seung Gi is great as Dae Gu...
I'm concerned about Detective Seo, I'm not so sure if he really is the bad guy, maybe he was working undercover to catch the big guys...
I read comments about how people didn't feel comfortable or connected to Go Ah Ra/Uh Soo Sun. I think she delivered the character well, given the way we saw her from the past story in first episode. It matched her personality and faces, and especially after watching her in Reply 1994, I think this role goes well with her. Of course I want to see some depth to it, mainly the reason she wanted to be a police/detective (I'll get sad if it's really only for the money).
Seung Gi-oppa is as and as usual. New kind of role, so happy to see him taking this. I'm waiting for the episode where he smiles, or maybe act so sweet and romantic like in King2Hearts or Brilliant Legacy..... I'll sure be dead by then.
About Seung Gi's role, I guess Dae Goo will fall in love for Soo Sun... It would be great haha
Ah, episode 4. How is it possible that I feel so sad in one scene, my eyes starting to get wet, and then laughed so hard on the next few minutes? It's ridiculous. I love this series so much. <3
The only strange thing is how Dae Gu is still on the team after that bunch of strange and offensive attitude...
The series genre has romance in it, but I hope it won't dominate too much. It's fun and refreshing being like what it is. Although with Seung Gi-oppa, romance never fails. <3333333
And it's the same here, I felt so sad in some scenes and a second after I was laughing so hard lol (dat scene where Soo Sun asked for Dae Gu to apologize and then everyone is jumping on the guy haha)
Yeah, that. It was especially sad since it seems tough for everyone, not just for Dae Gu. Poor puppies.

Wooooooooooooooow, can't wait til the next episode!
YAAS is getting even better, it's a great surprise, I wasn't expecting this drama to be so good.
Episode 5 is as cool as usual. Ehehehe. I'm growing to sympathize with Pan Seok. He has it rough being a detective, he wants to help here and there but unable to do so and eventually falls apart. His family story is just too tragic. That makes me want to believe that there is no way he is the bad guy from Dae Gu's past, but who knows. I have a feeling he was set up or deceived somehow, though. But he's also funny. The way he gives love to the rookies, the way he hides his smile and being proud of the rookies is just cute. <3
So much skinship this episode, lol. Looking forward for the day Dae Gu and Soo Sun become roommates!
Episode 5 was great! I don't want to believe that Seo is a bad guy either... it seems like he is a good cop giving his best to achieve his goals. Now I'm a little concerned about Kim Sa Kyung, when she talked with Pan Seok on the elevator, he said that the guy who was in front of her door is "as old as her older sister's son". The name of Dae Gu/Kim Ji Yeong's mother was Kim Hwa-Young. I wonder if she actually is Dae Gu's aunt coz she's probably from masan as well since she had a child with Pan Seok and their son died 10 years ago (Dae Gu's case occurred 11 years ago so their son was already grown up and they lived together probably).
Maybe I'm just thinking too much lol. So many theories popping inside my head.

Wooooooooooow, this episode 6 was the best! Can't wait to watch the next episode hahaha
Seriously, sometimes I'm frustrated by how mindless Korean drama sometimes is. If you want to stop someone from saying something while she is talking, and your hands are full to shut her mouth, I may go with stepping on her toes or just hit her with whatever I have on hand on that moment instead of kissing her. In front of my team leader. But that is a fan service, so yeah... I'm happy, but I just don't get the logic.
Oh, well. Episode 7 should be a fun one with this love love going around the air.
I tried the first 6 episodes of YAS, since it was praised so much (here but other places as well). I have kidn of mixed feelings about it.
Positive of course is the comedy, which is not outright hilarious but made me chuckle a few times here and there, the cast overall is convincing (surprised about Go Ara to be honest) and of course Cha Seung Won whose acting makes the others look like amateurs. His portrayal of a haunted police detective might be a bit clichéd but still touching while his backstory really is mysterious, pretty much the main reason i will continue watching the show, besides the murder mystery of course which, once revealed, will probably prove Seo´s innocence (for example he could have been blackmailed somehow) or show that he just made a mistake and otherwise is a really good guy.
The main negative point is Lee Seungi Gi and basically everything about his character which leaves me totally apathetic. I know that he is famous for doing the rude and bratty thing in dramas but while it certainly worked in King2Hearts and partly in Nine Tailed Fox, here his character is simply annoying, not to forget his acting is poor as well + the way he behaves is completely illogical. I mean his highest priority is to find the killer and also prove that Seo is guilty and for that, a cooperative behavior is much more logical instead of making enemies everywhere.
Cha Seung Won rocks this series with his various expressions and character twists. I also enjoy watching him very much. As for Seung Gi and Dae Gu's character... I think the way Dae Gu is laid down is pretty natural. Sure there are some bumps here and there, but I don't think the actions are that much illogical. It seems to me as if he didn't originally plan to work directly under Pan Seok. And on top of everything I can hardly imagine if you can be in good terms with the main suspect of someone who destroys your life, even if you have to pretend about it. This is not the other type of revenge drama in which with a change of identity the approach differs too. It will be more effective to pretend to be friendly indeed, I guess, but this course of action is not too unnatural for me.
Episode 7 seems quite interesting. I don't know if I want the romance to come kick in so fast around this time but I really hope it won't overshadow the main plot. Romance can wait. XD
