Dae-ho (Lee Seong-min), a former detective who was cut off due to over-investigation and lost his way. Self-proclaimed sheriff, he protects his hometown 'Gijang' with a remote area as wide as the sea.
When Jong-jin (Cho Jin-woong), a successful businessman to build a beach town in a peaceful neighborhood, comes down from Seoul, drugs begin to circulate in nearby Haeundae.
Dae-ho, who is suspicious of all of Jong-jin's actions, suspects him as a drug dealer and starts an investigation with his brother-in-law Deok-man (Kim Seong-gyun) as an assistant, but the public's feelings have long since moved to the rich and sophisticated Jong-jin…

Let's see, I'm just getting hurt like this. The game is an argument start!


A romantic seaside town in the south! Local emotion, not city
<The Sheriff>, a local investigation drama that awakens the hero who lives in the heart of the father.

From the title, it is <The Sheriff>, which is not found in Korea. 'The Sheriff', who is familiar as the protagonist of a western drama who protects the village alone against a villain who appears in a peaceful neighborhood, is terrified at the moment when he meets Dae-ho, a native of the detective, who dominates the neighborhood as a detective, and Jong-jin, a businessman who came down from Seoul. Instead, I got the relaxed atmosphere of a seaside town full of affection, laughter, and romance. The 'sheriff', who is not a detective or prosecutor, but an ordinary local resident, far from forensic investigation or meticulousness, but has no one to follow in his sense of justice and love. He suspects that he is the villain that cracks the peace. And, stronger than anyone else, the 'encrusted stone' causes the 'rolling stone' to make him very lonely and unfair in his hometown, which was like his own bedroom. Right after he was suspected of being a drug dealer, all his attempts to protect his hometown are misunderstood as a harsh banter. With perseverance, the investigation continues. The local investigative drama <The Sheriff> awakens the hero who is sleeping in the hearts of all fathers through the struggle of an ordinary man to protect the village with deep affection and crude sincerity, and the story of a businessman and villagers who are suspicious only in his eyes.

The movie <The Sheriff> is set in the background of a captain who lives in the romance of the blue sea. Director Kim Hyung-joo, who is home to Busan, naturally thought of Busan Gijang, a familiar space from the screenplay process, as the background of the story, and made the location principle that the symbolic spaces in the movie will be filmed in the actual factory. The production team went hunting around the actual area of Busan that appeared in the scenario, and as a result, Daeho and the members' hideout, Captain Hak-ri with a container, and Dae-ho, Dae-ho walking armed with a backcountry, and Annam-dong, Seo-gu, were used in real scenarios. The places that were marked were able to be captured in the film as they were. Filming in Busan, which lasted for about two months, continued with the beautiful maritime cities of Tongyeong and Geoje. A place that makes you excited just by hearing the name. However, the filming did not go smoothly. As filming began in Geoje and Tongyeong, a huge typhoon continued to pour in, delaying the scheduled filming schedule, and sometimes ending filming in the middle. Despite these difficulties, the staff did not stop the location for 90 days, and added natural art to the deep blue sea as a background to create the unique stickiness and warmth of a fishing village, and <The Sheriff> where you can feel the fishy sea breeze from the midsummer sea. >You have completed a friendly village of your own.
