I loved this drama from the start. The action started right from the beginning and the main Character Michael King was "oh sooo cool". just the way I Iove my main man. I guess most people would either love it or hate it. It's an entertaining drama if you don't take it too seriously but won't like it if you want something deeper. Like watching an Korean version of the old James read more Bond Movies. I for one absolutely loved it. Song II Gook is so incredibly hot , definitely eye candy treat for me. Will be looking for other dramas by him. Main couple could have had more romantic scenes together, that's my only issue.

So I past on this drama before when I was newer to dramas because I read a large amount of negative reviews and also the only person I knew in the cast was Han Chae Young and she wasn’t worth getting me to give it a chance. In the last couple months I've become familiar with Song Il Gook and even Han Go Eun. Recently I was looking to watch an intense read more drama so I decided to give the first episode a shot to see if it was bad as everyone was saying…

Story- I was surprised by how engrossed with the leads and the plot I was right from the start. I liked that the revenge started from the getgo and you didn’t have to wait for exciting things to happen. It remained engaging right up till the disappointing ending. There many plot wholes and I wanted a solid close to the romance. Speaking of this big romance that is suppose to make the main character change his ways, I wasn’t satisfied with the way they wrote it. The leads had few scenes together and they weren’t even that romantic. SIG’s character had more romantic scenes with the other 2 female lead characters. Even though the ending and the romance disappointed me, the writers did a great job of keeping me glued to the screen.

Acting- Song Il Gook’s character was a man of few words but his looks were definitely fitting of his character. He was really perfect as Michael King/Peter Pan/ Choi Kang Ta. Han Chae Young did a great job with what she was given. Towards the second half she had fewer and fewer scenes. They both had amazing chemistry though. The acting by the other main leads was perfect because their tortured characters were very believable. Han Go Eun was really really good. Some of the acting by supporting characters was questionable though..

Music- I really liked the score it heightened the scenes well. When it was suppose to be intense it was. The OST was good for the drama but not enough to listen to outside the show.

Rewatch- I would watch this again because it was an exciting watch but because I didn’t like the end I wont be watching it for a while.

Overall, this drama could have been better but I think its pretty good and definitely worth watching if you like exciting action dramas or if you’re a fan of Song Il Gook.

Both male protagonist have a cool demeanour, is fighting for something (a goal to reach). Both dramas have cool "agent" scenes and a female protagonist that fall in love with the male protagonist.

A Man Called God isn't nearly as good as Fugitive: Plan B but they both contain very similar elements. The main characters both have a team working with them to accomplish their missions. If you liked A Man Called God you might like Fugitive: Plan B but not too sure that works vice-versa.

    I am all over the place on this one. On the good side, I found it loads of cheesy fun and surprisingly addictive considering...the bad side. This thing was at least 6-8 episodes TOO LONG. They beat the premise to death when they had at least a ghost's chance to resolve it with some degree of believability. But then they spent the last episodes dragging their feet over the main conflict, going back and forth with the good guy and bad guys exchanging 'wins' that were totally unexplainable, completely undeveloped and out of the blue, and completely nonsensical. There were enough plot holes to drive the White Truck of Doom through! The idiotic ending just had my eyes rolling. So cartoonish. Not that the core resolution of who dies and who doesn't wasn't completely predictable (except maybe one), it was just the way they handled it that cheapened it and made it eye-rollingly cheesy. Still...the good outweighed the bad. I still enjoyed it overall...just ended up ff through A LOT of the last half dozen or so episodes....mostly the overused fight scenes. The fact that I never put this on hold and marathoned it straight through means there was 'something' (what, I still cannot figure out) that kept me wanting to keep watching. 7/10 pushing it.

    Ok. I just read in Wikipedia that this series is based on a comic book!! Lol!! So I can't fault it for feeling like a comic book made into a TV series - cause it is!! Oh and I forgot to mention, Mr Cobra had poison dripping claws too

    Ok. I was wondering if I would stay with this one. I'm at episode 11. 10 minutes to go and our lead protagonist is being attacked by....dun, dun, duuuun Cobra!! Yes folks, Cobra. A patent leather pants wearing, no shirt wearing, spikes and chains wielding a whip!! Yes a whip - LOL!!! I sorta, kinda enjoy this series. The three main lead women are drop dead beautiful gorgeous and I'm sure the ladies think Song Il Gook is HOT! Heck I'm a completely straight guy and I know he's handsome!! But this scenario took what was already teetering on comic book antics and pushed it completely into comicbookville!! It has some earmarks of James Bond, but also some aspects of Batman. No not the Dark Knight Batman, but the 1960s seriel Batman! Talk about style over substance. Yet it isn't completely without its charm, but right now if I graded it after 11 episodes of 25, it would be a 6.5 out of 10. Being a bit generous today

    I am sorry (actually no I am not), this drama was bad. Ridiculous plot. Fake situations. Repeatable. Dragged. Shallow.

    I am beginning this series to venture into a possibly new KDrama/KActionDrama area I haven't ventured into. It's on Nerflix so that makes it convenient. I am telling myself if the story or action get ridiculous to just go with it. Wonder if I will enjoy it! Here goes!

    For those who finished this. Is it worth it ? I'm a bit skeptical because of bad comments.
