What should I say more?! This series can be categorized as one of the best, a must see, as it combines the street factor with all the read more violence, gangs and raw characters with detective work and funny moments. For me this is the recipe to success.
The personalities of the cast were thought through until the end, the BGM fitted perfectly and the whole plot was done nicely.
It was my first Drama. I totally recommend that to everyone.
