I don't know one KPop group from another so when I watched this, it was simply for my enjoyment. In ways it reminded me of the short drama called Fight; however, there was not a group of people, just one. I like it! Maybe its the me who likes violence but it was a deep story. When the main character found himself so into the violence that he really could not stop, read more that's when it really got interesting. Definitely a different take on the causal effects of bullying!

I have finished this really short drama and I love it! It is somehow better than the japanese drama, why? Well because the korreografi of the fights are better executed in the korean version and the cinematography as well! Really loved the music in this, it got me hooked and with an epic feeling!

BUT, even though i think they developed characters and story really good in 4 eps.. I think this read more show deserves more episodes :( Cus afterwards I rewatched some scenes cus i can't believe it's so short and I want more!!

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Both are about a teenage boy getting involved with gangs through fighting. Both series have "gang wars" and concentrate mostly on fighting.

They are adaptations of the same manga Holyland, leading the same story line.Both of them are well done and they offer you a different taste with their acting and shooting.

    I kinda like this adaptation. I know a lot of fans of the manga prefer the Jap version. But I find that this version isnt too bad. Action scenes are fantastic! Well off to watch the Jap version, now! :)

    This is a very good ACTION series. However, if you're a huge sucker for romance i suggest you find something else. I'm a huge sucker for romance myself and I liked it, thought not for the romance points, but for the action and in-depth explanation in fighting scenes. Don't get me wrong, I do recommend it, strongly even. Just prepare yourself not to get blown away by a sweet romance.

    If you're actually interested in the manga adaptation (amazing manga btw), then you're probably going to dislike this version and I highly rec watching the Jver. Technically they're both about the same length since thats 20min per ep and this is 60 and yet it still manages to do everything better. Main lead actor Shin Dong Ho did not suit the role at all and imo he can't act, it's always the same monotone expressions, even when he's supposed to be this complex char. So to sum it up, bad adaptation and terrible acting not to mention boring. My only regret is not watching this version first so I could get rid of the bad aftertaste.

    When I first sas Dongho on the poster i immediately wanted to see it. The poster looked so cool.
    Even tho the Drama was kinda boring, like he was on the streets all night, I still liked it a lot. It made want to be strong and confident. This drama is only 4 episodes, but it teaches you that ANYONE can do ANYTHING.
