- Seo Kang Joon thoughts on starring in his first-ever thriller : “I’ve appeared in many sweet romantic comedies and melodramas, but this is a genre I’ve wanted to try for a while… I also want to become an actor who doesn’t discriminate against genres, so I chose this [drama].”
- The drama was full of twist and suspicions.
- The plot is really complicated and the way the story was presented was a bit messy.
- This drama was more characters driven than plot driven. Each member of the team has his own story.
- The cast did an awesome job. The characters are the strong point in this show.
- Han Suk-kyu played amazingly well as Do Chi-kwang, and till the end I wasn’t sure if he was good or bad.
- Kim Hyun Joo deserves serious praise for her turn as Han Tae Joo.
- Seo Kang Joon has a string of strong performances under his belt, and he doesn’t disappoint as Kim Young Koon.
- They concluded the drama nicely and I like the fact that it gives you the vibe that maybe they will make a second season of it.
- There is something missing in this drama but it’s a good thriller with psychological background.
My Rating – 8.0/10
