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!!

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!

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.

    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.

    I admit this mini series is not the BEST action series I've watched. I can honestly say that (in my opinion) it is admirable. Dongho's acting may not be Hallyu worthy although the mannerism he established perfected a replica of Kang Yoo in real life. However the magnitude of recognition the episodes get good or bad, it leaves an incomplete impression of having only four episodes and not really having a grounded, firm conclusion. I still wonder if there is a making of part two or if the writer was just messing around. All-in-all not bad word and good job to the actors. I just hope for a more detailed storyline with a complete ending next time.
