I really don't understand why that's the case. I really like this drama. I think its dark (with funny elements), sometimes frustrating (but that makes the plot realistic - taking down corruption isn't easy) and full of interesting characters, either fighting for justice or holding on to power, by any means.
I love So Ra, especially in ep12 when she outran him, but then he caught up and laughed at her, then she outran him again~~
And there's literally no reason to compare this to Stranger, although I have yet to finish it, but the whole plot, backstory and characters are all different...
the only thing in common is the two amazing female and male leads that are EQUAL character wise...
It always astounds me that certain people (probably rather young ones) feel somehow that if they like one drama of a certain genre they have to hate others of the same type - as if it's disloyal to like (in this case) Stranger & Falsify LOL I too think Stranger is better - but I still LIKE Falsify! Good grief!
idk about the others, if they missed the point of what you were trying to say.. however... i didn't miss your point, but i think the reason why Ginger replied rather coldly to you, is that the way you putted it, "sounded" quite arrogant and sarcastic. yes, you can like several dramas of the same genre indeed, but that doesn't mean that you aren't allowed NOT to like everything of the same genre. to think of it now, it was kind of hypocritical for you to react the way you did. (but i wish you a great day/night anyways! please don't be upset about me, i really don't want to hurt anybody, just stating what i feel is right and wrong. i could've made the same mistake!)
Wow - I sound arrogant? Your entire comment comes off arrogant. Yes, I was being sarcastic - because tons of posters find it impossible to like one drama without dissing another which is ridiculous. I made no mistake whatsoever.
Of course one doesn't necessarily like all the dramas in a genre just because one likes the genre.
Can't imagine what's not to like about Nam Goong Min - totally fantastic actor - but if you don't like crime/intrigue type suspense dramas this is NOT the one for you - especially if you don't like the actor.
I'd watch Criminal Minds rather than this if I were forced to choose (thankfully I'm not) - & yes, that is just a crime show w/o the political stuff.
I didn't say he is not a good actor, I said I don't like him.
Watch a lot of his drama, even like some of his role, notice his improvement but the spark just didn't start. De gustibus non est disputandum!
I'm forced to choose cause I don't have time to watch everything while on air.
But sometimes I make the wrong call, and found out later on that I miss a good drama.
That's why I start asking info.
thx for now I will stick to criminal minds.
I want some action, bit tired of political stuff.
That's a rather silly statement. This is also an excellent drama - different kind really. Both are eminently worth watching. It's kind of like saying that just because Hamlet is fantastic you can't watch any other tragedy LOL
I'm so happy that Nam Goong Min finally made his name as a lead after all these years, he always end up as second lead role even when he carries most drama he acted. Chief Kim was already a hit and Falsify hit 12.5% already so it will probably be his next hit in less than a year!
