I personally liked it. I have only read chap.1 of the webtoon (b/c I am not someone who reads webtoons) before I started watching this drama, so I can't compare the two. But I thought the drama was made really well and the entire cast did a stellar job.

Story: About a man called Frost who due to an accident when young lost most of his emotions and had his hair turned read more white. He and his team of "buddies" solve cases dealing with psychology. Every episode deals with a different case - but there is one underlying case involving Frost that starts showing itself mid-way.

Cast: Dr.Frost (Song Chang Eui) This is the first drama I am recognizing him in and I think he did a great job, he's attractive even with the 'white' hair ;) His very rational and thought processing mind was very believable. I liked how I could see the puzzle pieces come together in his eyes. I wouldn't mind working for him myself^^. Yoon Seung Ah (Jung Eun Chae) First time I've seen this actress too, I liked her as the novice apprentice who has a totally different character than Frost - they worked well together. Cheon Sang Won (Choi Jung Woo) was great as the head professor. (I always enjoy seeing this actor in dramas). Song Sun (Lee Yoon Ji) at first I didn't like her b/c of her animosity towards Frost but about half-way in the drama, she stopped acting rude and was then pleasant to watch ;) Nam Tae Bong (Sung Ji Ru) I loved him as the Detective - always bringing new cases for Frost to help solve, he made the drama even better by being there. All the supporting and guest characters did a good job.

Music: It was good and suspenseful at times but I don't remember any actual songs.

Re-watch Value: 5.5 - If I get hungry for some psychological stuff again I may re-watch a couple episodes here and there.

I never watched the webtoon, so I have no idea how the drama relates to it. This review is solely based on watching the drama.

It is a nice light psychological thriller. It isn't really suspenseful. There is no major action, no romance, no emotional revelations, no real character development. However, it is interesting if you like psychology which I do. The main story line is tied together neatly with the weekly read more "who done it" story line. I enjoyed it, but I kind of had it figured out about mid way through the drama. I have seen better psychological dramas.

The acting is fine. Nothing stands out. I have seen Song Chang Eui do better. I am a huge fan of Sung Ji Ru and he excels as Detective Nam.

The music is fine.

I won't rewatch this.

If you like psychological dramas, then there are better choices, but this one is ok.

Both main male character's lack something because of an event in their childhood.
In Stranger the main guy lacks emotions due to a brain surgery during childhood.
While in Dr. Frost the main guy has trouble sympathizing with other's due to an injury to his frontal lobe as a child.

He and she and their team. World of crimes, suspense, detectives, police. A developing bound between male and female lead (in "Dr Frost" - only a feeling of romance).

    Overall entertaining watch. Definitely my type of drama (unsurprisingly since it's OCN). I really liked the characters, but some of their actions didn't make sense. Jung Eun Chae as Sung ah was really likeable. She seemed down to earth. However a couple of times she imposes her own bias on some cases (2 cases) and never gets addressed. Lee Yoon Ji as Song Sun was again very likeable, but I find the way she does her job very unprofessional. Don't get me started on Prof Cheon's actions. My favourite were the duo Dr. Frost & Detective Nam ;)

    Still a great drama, although it was completely different from the webtoon. I recommend to watch both this drama and read the webtoon XD

    I was planning on watching this drama, but knowing that it's based off a webtoon I decided to read the webtoon first and then watch the drama. After having done that,I have to admit, I really dislike the actors for the main cast, they don't fit the characters at all!! I've seen Song Chang Eui in many dramas before and he is a great actor; however, in this particular drama he didn't bring the character to life at all. Despite the main cast, the story line is quite interesting...it's like a continuation of the webtoon almost.
    With this drama, I recommend watching the drama before reading the webtoon...otherwise your expectations for the cast will be too high....

    This was a good drama but not as good as some other dramas from OCN. Still better than usual dramas. The ending was good. I sure hope they'll make another season !
