This drama has every cliché of the book, all the caracteristics of a revenge drama are there :
+ The deep love story from a very young age is there BUT, the romantic scenes were very few and they manage to make a romantic meeting in every episode even if sometimes it wasnt necesary!
+The big twists were there too BUT there were kind of weak and predectibale.
+The super evil person read more that ruins everybody s life is there too BUT it was too typical!!
The main leades were good enough and believable.the rest of the cast were fine BUT not outstanding!
Kim Nam Gil has became an expert on weird endings in this drama is not an exception!
I have to mention the GREAT song of Boa, that for me is one of the best OSTs of the year.
To sum up, it s a good revenge drama to watch, with a good story with enough twits to not get bord, and a great main leads that match really well BUT it s far from being a masterpiece! BUt it s not a disapointement !

At last I managed to finish Shark by marathon the last 10 episodes in one night. Now I can cross out Shark from my currently watching list :)and off to see a new drama!

But before that, I thought I must write what I feel during watching this. For the story, I give 7. Yeah it's just good, not more & not less for me. Maybe after you watch the ending, you read more might give it lower than that :P

For atleast in each episode, there's a new truth revealed. For me, I can predict what is what, and who is who. The story is enough to create suspense and eager to know feeling, that what's make me wanna keep watching Shark. There's this time when one of the truth unfold I feel very2 disappointed at that fact. In my mind, " It was'nt suppose to be like this!! Ah poor him.." *I try to not give spoiler, so I'll stop here :P*

The acting, it's just good. But sometime I can't feel the emotion. Maybe it's not strong enough to give touching feeling. There's many time when I watch Kim Nam Gil scene, I must see his moustache. And for that, I don't know why :D

The music also good. Among the Ost, the one that keep linger on in my mind is BoA song, Between Heaven & Hell :) * Charari biwo hajaa.. *

I give rewatch value 5 bcoz I don't usually rewatch the drama that I've watched.

This drama is overally good. Moral of the story is "To be honest.Don't hide even if it's the ugly truth, so you can get the peaceful life.If you hide it, you will suffer till the rest of your life, that include the life of your son & daughter too." The end~

Same actor, same story, same vibe. Only the cast is different. Moral of the story: if you're looking for a dark, vengeful plot, always look for Kim Nam Gil.

    omg I can't believe I didn't write anything at all regarding this drama her even though I 've watched it when it was airing... First off all I think the whole drama was perfect! Ofcourse that's only my opinion hence not everyone agrees with it.. hint hint look below.... and second of all I think that some people have to realize that good dramas isn't only about fluffy happy stuff... Just saying that..

    Just finished this drama, and I have to say, the writers really screwed up in a HUGE way by having Hae Woo married off before Yi Soo and her can have a chance of getting back together again. The ending was fitting on account of what Yi Soo had done, but I can only give it a 4 for a rating because of her being married off and as well for a jackass husband who, right away went after her when Yi Soo went missing, he was selfish and didnt have respect for her or his friend, Yi Soo to even care to wait to see if he was still alive, he betrayed Yi Soo and Hae Woo by constantly pushing her till she finally gave in to marrying him. There is no spoiler here as its all in the synopsis. I have to say, shame on the despicable and twisted minded writers for having her married off without them having a chance of getting back together again...

      Uhmm I’m not trying to jump down anyones throat. You seem really worked up about this, i’m not. I never said she being married was a spoiler but i do admit i misunderstood when he goes missing. However what i said was and i quote “ now i know all these events and critical turns of this drama”. You describing events in the drama is a spoiler to ME..
      Tbh i can see that we have very different views and i don't think we will get anywhere in this conservation. Example“ she didn't deserve Yi Soos, he didn't love him enough, if she had loved him enough, she would have stayed single and kept him fully in her heart instead of giving her heart, even partially, to another man” I don’t agree. She thought he was dead ! What was she to do in that situation ? Would you rather have her be single for the rest of her LIFE?? . “Divorce is wrong, so if she had left her husband ....she would have been even more despicable” tbh i find this to be very narrow minded maybe because i’m more open minded. Whatever the case I’m not going to say You’re wrong or I’m right. We are just different.

      Yes, tbh, in my most humble opinion, if she truly loved him with all her heart, yes, she should have stayed single for the rest of her life. The Bible states that except for adultery, divorce is very wrong, and even in adultery it is still wrong, but is an excuse for a divorce. God only allows for divorce in the case of adultery because of the hardness of peoples' hearts, when there's divorce for adultery sake, there's no room for forgiveness and for the working of God in peoples' hearts. So if you say I'm narrow minded, you're saying that about God, and I'd be so very careful in saying that. So yes, in that regard, we are so very different for sure, I believe what God says, and I rever Him too much to be any other way but as you call it, narrow minded. Go ahead, enjoy the drama, I only said one there, there's waaaaaay more in the drama that I didn't choose to say, the drama is a spoiler in itself in that it is crappy right from the get go. Other than her getting married, she is a very good girl, like I said, the writers really screwed up when they made this foul drama... Love should win out in ALL aspects, it's not weak, selfish, or conditional, I'd love to know where the love is in this drama, or the romance for that matter. These writers by having her getting married off really don't know what real love is... All of this, except for God and divorce, of course, is all in my most humble opinion, except for what love is.

      I will say this much, her husband doesn't deserve her either. just a real snake in the grass. I hated every aspect of this drama.

      Clearly we have drifted away from the drama itself and into the topics of the drama. I'll inbox you instead.

    I'm on ep 14, and the storyline is pretty intense... Btw, is there any dress code in Korean legal institutions? I mean, how can anyone take seriously a prosecutor in a tiny little shorts...

    Is it me or does dongsoo in this drama look a wee bit like BTOB's Eunkwang? HEHE <3 anyway this was a great show! i don't like sad endings but I still enjoyed the show, anticipating the next episode every time! Lots of fangirling cuz of Kim Nam Gil (quite obviously, if you haven't watched his shows but only seen his photos you may not think he's so handsome but he actually really is, and kisses well too<3), Lee Soo Hyuk and Ha Suk Jin! Omg Detective Kim and Inhye were really cute together :)
