Seven celebrity sleuths discover that they are a part of an operation called Project D, in which they are implanted with a chip containing the DNA of famous detectives throughout history. Led by a man only known as “K” (Ahn Nae-sang), they are recruited as private detectives and are given a new case in each episode, all the while figuring out the mystery behind Project D and its inception.

- Puzzle-solving + location-hopping + amateur detective appeal + directed chaos = Busted!
- The story is very interesting and every mystery has its charm.
- I watched this primarily for Park Min Young, but then I fell in love with the show in its whole.
- The cast has a super dynamic and their interactions and friendship is really sweet to watch!
- My favorite episodes : Ep 5 (The Last Vampire) and Ep 6 (Battle of the Detectives)
- I really enjoyed watching Busted!, and I totally recommend this if you want some laughs and just something to take your mind of things.
It’s a mystery-solving variety show that puts the viewers in shifting emotions of excitement and laughter. This was so much fun to watch.
