I have never been a big fan of crime shows. They have never held my interest, this includes shows like Bones, Law and Order, Criminal Minds, etc. They are all the same and it gets really old after a while. These feelings have crossed over to dramaland as well. So really I steer clear from a show like Pride and Prejudice but I have a thing for Choi Jin Hyuk. So I decided to give this show a try. And I am overall glad that I did. It was an entertaining show that kept me watching until the end. But it definitely wasn't perfect.
The story follows Han Yeol Moo who is starting her first year as a prosecutor. She decided to become a prosecutor because of the murder of her younger brother years before. As she tries to unravel the mystery behind what happened to her brother and the connection between his murder and her boss Koo Dong Chi.
The show really has a good mystery too it. Each new episode revealed something new but would keep enough things hidden to keep the audience interested. It would have been nice if toward the end of the show they would have started to answer more questions and added less to the mystery. By the end of the show we had so many loose ends to tie up but unfortunately they weren't able to. The last episode was probably the thing that disappointed me the most about this entire show. It was so horrible to watch this final episode that didn't answer any questions and left us with an ending that was bitter.
The performances from the two male leads were great and were probably my favorite part of the drama. I loved their bromance and how their relationship went so much further than just friendship, they were family. Lee Tae Hwan stood out with his performance as Kang Soo and he is now engraved in my heart forever. He portrayed the emotions so well and every time he cried I wanted to cry with him. I am looking forward to seeing his acting develop in more dramas! And Choi Jin Hyuk was as dashing as ever and it was so frustrating to see the main girl accuse of some horrible things at the beginning of the drama. I am so sad that Jin Hyuk is going to be serving his military service this year. I am going to miss him!
Baek Jin Hee wasn't my favorite part of this drama. I think the biggest problem was that I just didn't like the character she played, especially at the beginning. Her character did grow on me as the drama went on but I was never fully invested in her. Her chemistry with Choi Jin Hyuk is what made me like her more
This drama was a good watch up until the end. It was suspenseful and entertaining and the chemistry between the two leads was really great. I think this drama suffered most between a complicated plot that was too much to tie up in the number of episodes they were given. And having a villain that didn't seem real and for most of the drama he was this invisible force that I didn't really care about. But for all it's faults it was an entertaining ride.
