    Been watching dramas for over 6 years and this one should be top 10 of the season. Great acting and interesting plot.

      i really disagree with what you're saying because the drama is really good so far. You probably only care to see the young actors and not the old but i feel like the entire cast has been doing really good in acting overall.

    It's pretty sad seeing people not wanting to watch this just because it's 50 episodes. Maybe it's because I'm used to watching american shows that end up having about that many episodes if not more. I can understand dropping if it if you aren't interested, but if you watch multiple currently-airing dramas throughout the year, is watching one 50-ep one that different? Aside from the fact that it's one story instead of multiple stories, obv.

      I think many drama viewers avoid longer dramas because they're used to shorter dramas, which start and finish in a short period of time. 50/120 episode dramas require a commitment of about 6 months if you're following them week by week or even in a marathon, it's a lot of hours. My point is that with dramas, not only from Korea but overall, we get used to such a "quick" watch & resolution that some people get scared or are put off by longer stories. I guess American/western shows are indeed very long too, but perhaps they feel they to go by quicker, because of the separate seasons factor? I really don't know how to explain it but I get what you mean! You made a really good point :)

      -- Aside from the fact that it's one story instead of multiple stories, obv. --

      That's the point, I was used to watch american tv shows and drop it completely after I find out k-drama... why? Cause if they are short, you can see and appreciate many more stories, rather than look at the same story dragged season after season, or for 50+ ep.

      to me it's like to read a lot of books in a year, instead of just 4-5 books.
      (I hope I have explained, my English is not perfect.)

      I don't despise long k-drama, I have watched many, but this year (2017) seems to be the long k-drama season, a lot has come out and it's difficult to follow them all.

      It has become frustrating, at least for me that I started to appreciate dramaland for short series.

      I normally try out the first 3 ep. of every drama and decide what to do.
      but I can understeand why some people drop it just cause it's 50+ ep.
      It's not only about time, it's about to want to watch different stories.

      separate seasons are definitely a factor, and this is actually something 50-ep dramas have in favor of american shows. American networks go season-by-season, so a lot of those shows are disjointed or have no clear ending because the network just wants to make a lot of money.
      50 episode dramas are pretty much already guaranteed their 50-ep run and (in theory, since this is my first long kdrama) have a lot more room to have their story planned out and ending worked out.

    From the synopsis i thought "This looks like Korean version of the Leverage". Is it though ?

    • Reply
      whatever 5 days ago

      tl;dr: So far, no, but it seems like it's leading up to having some similar vibes.

      It has a similar "Robin Hood but with more people" thing in the synopsis (I liked Leverage a lot so I have high hopes for this), but so far the dynamics are completely different, and it has a pretty clear overarching plot that Leverage didn't have, as it was more episodic. But we're only 3 episodes in and haven't seen the main cast yet so a lot can still happen.

    How was it??????????? It's not a sitcom, yeah??

      Far from being a sitcom. It's a melodramatic, makjang-y weekend drama that has a lot of characters and secrets and crying. It's similar to the likes of East of Eden or May Queen. So far we're still in early stages, but I'd say so far, it's been engaging. I'm curious to know what will turn out of this and the relationships between the main characters.

    I should not complain of 25 fridays and saturdays seeing my beloved JHW. But 50 eps is too much yet I will still watch it just for him. I fell in love with him in Queen In Hyun's Man. I hope it is much better than his trot drama. I love him but I really cannot finish that drama.

    I like the female lead. This GG idol is better actress than the female lead in K2. I love her pureness in Moon lovers and I thought her and NJH will be dating. Hahaha.

    Now let's start on this crazy 50 eps drama.

      Actually if you watch two episodes of a 50-episode-long drama every weekend, it's fine (I do the same with Father is Strange right now). Binge-watching long dramas can be a pain the ass though.

      It is just 2 episodes every week, so 50 eps is ok \0/

    Guys give it a try don't be put off cuz of the 50 episode tag. It's only 2 episodes in and I am suffering because I want more and just can't wait. I even saw the 3rd episode's preview more than 5 times and I think I will be seeing it again.
