Have you watched a drama that you want to know how it ends but you don't want it to end because if it ends, you wouldn't find anything equivalent to this? Well look no more. The story of this drama is one of a kind not the regular thief and criminal, cat and mouse hunt. If you're tired of the gooey romance and the common love triangles, and you want something more read more substantial go for it because this deserves all the praises it can get.

Story : the story is almost flawless and fast paced enough that there isn't a single episode that wouldn't give you a high. The twists and turns that happen are almost realistic and you will find yourself getting slipped into the story.

Acting : Ma Dong Seok and Seo In Gook. DO i need say more? the characters in the drama are played so well, you start believing in them. They take you a roller coaster ride and they do it well!!

I dont write reviews normally. But for this drama, I had to :D ! Probably one of the best I have watched till date. The writer keeps you on hook until the end. Twistception at its finest. You wont be able to predict anything, trust me ! Not to mention, each of the characters have a special spot in my heart now. Of course, this is only due to the spectacular acting read more by the stellar cast. Seo In Guk and Ma Dong Seok stole the show :) With shows like these though, re-watch might not be as great an experience as when you watched it the first time. So with a very heavy heart, I say goodbye to these wonderful characters but with the hope that one day I would have forgotten the story enough to return back to it again.

    This drama was great from start to finish, each character had such a individual personality which they played so well. It really brought the drama together and the loyalty was really god to see. God, I need another drama like this.

    Wow. I did not expect that I will enjoy this one a lot. After reading the comments, I am guessing that they were referencing the Bad Guys series at the ending? Is it also a good series? Is it too serious? A serious drama full of tragedy is difficult for me to finish. At least this drama is tagged with comedy so I gave it a try, and I have no regrets after. You do not really need a lot of funny scenes to enjoy this drama. It is already entertaining, the script and story line it is so clever and amusing.

    I really like this drama because each episode has surprises that it keeps me on the edge of my seat. There's no boring part for me. And I love the three lovely ladies here - they're composed and mature unlike those childish and annoying female leads in other dramas.

      Same thoughts. Too much unbelievable occurrences, but the comical side is well-done.

    This is a nice hidden gem, that I wished more people would watch. The cons were daring and I was always surprised as to how they would pull them off. VERY Ocean's 11. But THE best part for me comes at the very end (i'm talking ab the last 2 minutes) when a surprise character from another OCN drama makes an appearance. I'm sure it was just a nod to Bad Guys rather than a true link from one show to another, but I still fan-girled for a solid 20 minutes afterward!!!
