This drama is extremely underrated. I've enjoyed every minute of this drama and I know I'm going to rewatch it for sure. I've laughed, cried, was mentally broken down,... and watched it as a marathon because I couldn't stop.

Every scene was made in a artistic way with a unique camera and music which suited the scene and was creating the atmosphere so you could feel the actual emotions. I would like read more to point out how logical was the plot. It happens a lot in dramas that some things don't fit together and it seems a bit weird. Here, every scene had a logical reason why to be put there. It was amazing to see that some scenes from the beggining were actually much more important at the end and had much more meaning behind it.

Also the acting was so beautiful. I can't find any other word how to describe the acting. See it for yourself.

After a lot of dramas which weren't good I've finally experienced the feeling when you finish drama and you feel empty the next day and the day after,....

If you're looking for an intelligent drama and has a hidden meaning which can be also interpreted to a real life - I wish you a pleasant and deep experience.

Evil Minds is dark, psychological and complicated, it's a drama with an intelligent plot that unfolds step by step, using some well chosen flashforwards and flashbacks.

In 1998, Fang Mu is an arrogant but brilliant student who can profile a criminal in a few minutes without hesitation. But when we move to 2001, he is not the same self-confident guy anymore, he has built a barrier to defend himself from the past, read more from something that happened three years before. We don't know what made him change, we find our answers slowly, as we go on with the story.

Each murder case is brutal but well-designed. You find yourself absorbed in the story and when you finish the puzzle, you notice how the pieces fit together perfectly.
What grasps the attention is also the inner struggle that Fang Mu has to fight. "If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you".

As I said before, Evil Minds is a dark drama but it's also beautiful. With "beautiful" I mean the artistic quality of the filming, the quality of the scriptwriting and the choice of the soundtrack (especially the ending song, "Flying Horse" by Luo Er).

The acting is very good, especially because they aren't veteran actors. (And Chen Ruo Xuan is really cute ehm ehm XD).

I feel indebted to Evil Minds, so I recommend to give a chance to this great drama that has gone unnoticed.

Make a Recommendation More recs (2)Recommendations

both drama's are about solving crime, although god's quiz is more focused on forensics and rare illnesses. A common theme between the two shows is the balance between the protagonist and the final antagonist.

Both have mini episodes of crimes but Evil Minds will mess with you more...wayyy more. Evil Minds is more psychologically disturbing...
Both have overarching themes that tie together but Evil Minds is WAYYY more intense and messed up but it's still really good all the same.

    Can someone please explain me the ending? I didn't get it at all.
    Why all those events were showing in reverse?

      Good question. I didn't get it either. Hoped that the answer might be in the second season - it isn't.

    The two main characters are interesting and so are the cases, but the storytelling and the editing are a mess.
    I just wish the story was told in a linear fashion that would have fully allowed me to sympathise with Fang Mu's plight.

    This criminal psychology drama made me hold on to my seat and held my breath for some seconds. Psychologically disturbing but it made me crack up my mind to analyse and guess the scenarios. The stories were very intense and well made and consistent.

    One of my favorite series to date, very gripping and intense, loved the characters, I thought the acting was great and the music fitted the drama perfectly. 10/10 for me.

    dropped because the actor or the character of the protagonist is seriously lacking. Too dull and uncharismatic for someone who's built to be a genius. I get that his past had to do with it but the actor just lacks the presence, the charm and the quirks that make other genius protagonists so fun to watch

    Alright, why are they driving a '2015 Nissan Qashqai in both 1998 and 2001. Although it may be trivial for some, for me it's quite an unnerving fact.

    Beautifully chosen music accompanying the dark feeling of the series. Skillfully performed although I found Chen Ruo a bit lacking. I could feel he is beginner in acting. Some may compare it to Love me if you dare, but I would say the main difference is this series is not for main stream, lacking all the cutesy, pink and iPhones/Audi cars and of course missing Huo Wallace who always needs to look cool.

    A good watch but slow at times and script is uncreative on how they process cases... but i like the dark aspect of it and the twist in the end.

    I stayed up 'till 4am watching this mind-blowing drama. It made me cry, laugh and almost break my jaw from dropping it so much! First class acting and award winning script.

      Personally, I found it better than Love Me If You Dare! I don't understand why so few people have watched it..

      I ended up starting it, and it's a lot darker than Love Me If You Dare. Maybe a little too dark for me!

      No, but I plan to. And I'm in the same boat as you, finding a drama similar to 'Evil Minds' has shown to be difficult.
