Review:

I really wanted to watch this because I love both Seo In Guk and Jang Na Ra. I especially liked Seo In Guk in Shopping King Louie (read my review here) and Jang Na Ra in Fated to Love You (read my review here). I actually watched half of this drama the 1st time and didn’t finish because I found it pretty confusing. Nonetheless, I finished the second time!

This drama has a bit of a dark side and is sometimes pretty creepy because of the murders/psychological issues. Throughout this drama there’s an overarching case they are trying to solve but also has smaller crime cases on the side. The thriller aspect of this drama kept it really interesting. However, the reason I didn’t like this drama was because I didn’t feel like there was much chemistry between Seo In Guk and Jang Na Ra. Maybe it’s because I’m so used to her character in Fated to Love You, I wasn’t really able to get into her character in this drama :(. I also felt like they didn’t have enough interaction to really justify how they felt for each other. Nonetheless, they did a really good job playing out their parts and this drama had a really interesting plot. There are also not many romantic scenes and mushy gushy stuff. If you’re into thrillers, action, crime scenes, and psychological dramas, I think you will enjoy this!

Feel free to start an open discussion about this drama in the comments below ^_^ I’d love to discuss the plot, delve deeper into the storyline, etc!

Overall Thoughts:
Happy (but also kinda sadish) ending
Thriller/creepy
Interesting plot
Not much romance

    1. Thank you!

      This drama’s main storyline begins with Seo In Guk returning to Korea to try to solve a murder case that may be connected to a murder case from his childhood. It also seemed as if the murderer is trying to “reach out to him” as well. He then starts to work with Jang Na Ra, who actually had a crush on him ever since he was a child! This drama’s more of a psychological/murder case type of drama and doesn’t have much of a romance aspect. So throughout this drama, they slowly unravel the story of Seo In Guk’s childhood and the murders that have been happening.

      Let me know if you have any other questions! ^_^
