I decided to watch this because of TOP because he is part of the drama. I'm not really into action unless I find the story or characters interesting. This drama is too long and a bit dragging in some parts but the action parts are definitely worth watching. I also want to commend the actors' acting especially the main lead. I can see chemistry between the two love pair. I might not read more re-watch it again because of its length but it's definitely worth watching for action fans. There won't be a second season if it's not, right? so it's worth a try.

i would've given this drama a 10/10 but the ending really fucked up all my emotions right now that was one serious cliff hanger tbh

i loved the whole thing esp. how the actors played it out
i dont even know if i can continue on to watch iris 2 because i am just so emotional right now but you should definitely watch this if you're into drama/EXTREMELY THRILLING SHOWS, and if read more you're a little scared of the gore you should keep in mind that what they show ranges from mild - a little more than mild because all they show is blood, but they don't show extreme close ups of the wounds.

i'm still crying bye

Both have lots of action. All In is a Korean mafia Godfather drama starring Lee Byung Hun and Song Hye Kyo. It's excellent but most people don't know about it since it was produced in 2003.

      The plot is connected, even though most of the characters are different, there's a lot you won't understand without watching this first.
      This one is also said to be better by most people, so there's no reason why you should skip it.

    This was a really good action-filled drama. Although, I preferred the 2nd lead female;
    I have to admit that the chemistry between the main couple was intense. Kudos to the actors.

    I tried to watch this season before starting the 2nd one, but I just can't. The characters don't hold my interest at all. I think I've watched far enough to understand the gist of things. I write this since I know there's a bunch of people that want to just watch the 2nd season. I say 2 episodes of this season and you'll be fine.
