This drama is amazing!
Another kick-ass character from OCN series. Of all, Hero is the cutest and most idiotic and imature chracter. Which actually make you love him from the first episode to the end. His change from rich playboy to the real HERO is hard and full of blood, yet... this journey is fun and action packed.

Storyline is very interesting and full of excitment through the whole series (well, it read more has only 9 episodes which makes it easier). The story is dark and full o special effects and action. It just feels like one long Batman movie! :D

As for acting... i gave it 8, because of Yang Dong Geuns acting. He is great actor and he gave this character a special charm, that wll make you fall for him. But in some psychological aspects, i felt like he overacted some scenes. But I felt that just in one scene, so its not such a bad thing.

So... this drama is great. With every episode, you will want to see more and more... i hope, that there will be second season, because it would be great.

Looking around mine "On-hold drama list" I came across Hero. I remembered that drama was very exciting at first. But ... some other dramas are airing in the same time and Hero was put on-hold. It' not this kind of drama that will make you crazy in the end of every episode.

I love the whole lonely hero fighting for justice concept. Well I'm a huge fan of Bridal Mask and City read more Hunter and they are the most awesome heroes ever!

Cast did a good job, but overall I got a feeling that they are lacing in some departments. The main lead was adorable, clumsy trouble-maker but in the end writers tried to put to much dept in his character and that made him just a kid playing justice. I loved the music, it's was really great, actually I never had an opportunity to hear Korean rap - quite good :) All instrumental background music - awesome!

I'm a little disappointed how the story developed, I know they cut the drama from 10 to 9 episodes, but come on some actions were completely illogical. I did not regret watching it, had some fun during the show. Overall drama is good, if you like action, fighting corruption and supernatural powers this is a drama for you.

Both protagonists have supernatural streight and try to fight evil with it, while continuing their everydays' life.

It's both everyday-life drama mixed with superhero-supernatural streight.

    For those who finished this. Is it worth it ? I'm a bit skeptical because of bad comments.

      Okay, my opinion, since no one else has answered. I started this drama...two years ago? Something like that. I watched the first 6 episodes. I liked it, but didn't love it; left it there, intending to go back to it.

      I just finally did so and finished it a day or two ago. The story isn't complicated enough that I even forgot much of what was happening. That might be a bad thing if you're just watching straight through, but it worked for me, haha. Anyway, I liked the last three eps, too. Overall, I thought it was a good drama, not great, but good. There is something of a decrease in quality from the beginning, but it never gets truly bad. To me, at least. The ending isn't even a bad ending. (I go into all kdrama endings with very low expectations, though.) It seemed to me that they were leaving it a little bit open in case of a second season, but clearly that never happened. It suffers a little because of that, but still. I found it enjoyable.

      And it's 9 episodes. It's not like it's a big time investment. :) So if you're still wondering 8 months later...

    1st episode was good, dark, it felt almost like watching some good hbo tvshow, then it turned into crap

    This was a very good, creative drama. My only complaint was our hero's mask. While Yang Dong-Geun always gives an intense performance, he's a mumbler and the mask didn't help (thanks for subs). Other than this minor flaw, I hope there'll be a season 2.

    I watched this, and it had a unique feel to it. I'll recommend it to those who like a bit of humor with action and less sappy love stories.

      Were there only going to be 9 ep from the beginning, or did they shorten the last part?

      I'm not sure myself. When the Drama started, I looked on the Official Website. Back then it was supposed to get 10 Episodes, but now it says 9..

    I'm on ep.3! And the whole story is fucked up, it's good but really confusing. I don't know, now longer who is the bad guy or the good one! Haha. Ofc the main actor Cheol and YiOn is good, but then I don't know. :p
