First, I'm really excited to write this review because I think this is a drama that many underestimated, including me.
I swear on my life that at the end of the second episode I had no doubt that the drama was a mess, too extravagant and I didn't understand any character. However, my younger sister encouraged me to keep watching because, I don't know why, the drama had fascinated her.
Now that I've finished the last chapter I must honestly say I swallowed my words and curses. This drama was absolutely great, lovely and especially smart, while still being funny and eccentric.

There will come a time (approximately in Chapter 5) where you will not be able to stop and it will become the best remedy for a bad day, it will be the last thing you want to watch before going to sleep.

The performances of the young detectives make love the weirdness of each character. The misunderstood Ahn Chae Yool and her adorable brother (seriously, I've become a stalker of this actor) were the characters I loved most. Hye Ri was so sweet that no doubt will soon give much to talk with her next drama.
In fact, there are two characters who, although they influenced the history, I think they were superfluous: The teacher Ha and his unbearable mother, I totally hated their characters because their existence didn't make sense to me.

However, it's gratifying to see that a Korean drama begin to confront sensitive issues such as abortion or homosexuality.
One point that I found unique about this drama is that there was no representative song, just the sweet whistled melody of the intro.
In short, this is a drama that yes or yes you'd want to see again. I hope you give it a chance and do not miss it because you'll beg for a sequel ... like me XD

Story
First word that comes to mind is refreshing. It's not your typical Korean drama maybe because it has very minor romance. Instead, numerous interesting mystery cases and youth-related issues were brought up.

Personally, I thought that this drama felt very youthful and quirky. Despite the seriousness of certain issues in the show, it felt more toned-down, possibly to suit their targeted audiences (teenagers and young adults??).


Acting
The main characters have very distinct personalities that I felt were very well portrayed. Some had to be really awkward and annoying due to their characters as school outcasts or even possibly nerds. However, some viewers might find it unpleasant and disturbing to watch their immature behaviour. I personally feel that the characters were intentionally written that way, although it might seem quite an exaggeration for high school students to still behave childishly.

Also, good acting by young (possibly newbie) actors and actresses who took on the supporting roles. For instance, Chun Young Min who played Ah Ra was very memorable. I recall feeling her frustrations when she was yelling at her dad.


Cast
I thought it was weird how they made the teachers play multiple roles throughout the show. Maybe just for laughs, but thankfully it was not confusing and it does not affect the clarity of the storyline.

It was also rather nice to see new and young actors and actresses.

Music
Honestly, I did not recall anything memorable or special.

Rewatch value
I definitely wouldn't mind rewatching (even though I usually never do).
In fact, I would love for them to have a squeal!


In all, I feel that this was enjoyable and rather light. However, it should not be taken too seriously due to the nature and the theme of the drama. I wouldnt recommend this if you're into serious and mature dramas. However, if you're thinking of taking a break from romance-heavy dramas, you should give this a try!
