First, I have to say that this movie holds a special place in my heart, since it came out back in 2014, I waited for various months until it was subbed like a crazy stalking woman and I was not disappointed.

The Mole Song: Undercover Agent Reiji is a over the top, too much like an anime, makes you laugh for no reason, kind of movie. It can be very silly and read more if you are not in the mood for nonsense and foolishness, don't watch this movie, you are not gonna like it. But if anything is game, enjoy, i laughed my ass off.

At first look it is just the simple plot of a bad police officer ending up in a undercover mission, how it is in Japan it is obvious on the Yakuza. But what makes this movie different is the take out on the hero journey, from the moment of been chosen for the mission and the process of entering on the yakuza clan. It is just so crazy and unexpected, you never know what it is gonna happen on the next scene. And it gets you, you can't stop watching.

And believe me, there is a song.

My real reason to watch it was because of Ikuta Toma, who is one of my favorite actors in Japan, and it had been years since I last saw him in a comedy. If you know him, you know Hana Kimi and if you watched it you know he is a master of comedy. So when you hear about him staring in a comedy movie, you get excited. And his work in this movie is excepcional, he shows a character that is stupid and cute and a pervert and an innocent at the same time. You can not do anything but laugh.

Apart from Toma other performance I really liked was the yakuza brother, Masaya Hiura. The actor made a great job and the development of the character, it is very well done. Hightlights for the relationship between him em Heiji, for me it was more interesting than the romance betwen Heiji and the police officer Wakagi Junna. It was a bit out of the place and there are scenes that i asked myself what she was doing there, in my opinion they should have done a different pace on the romance, but in the end it served to its proprose.

Other point i want to make is about the fashion and the concept of the movie, it is out of this place. it is gangster funk cartoonish kind of vibe, remembers a lot of animes from the 80's. For me, it gives a nostalgic feelings of my childhood.

Overall it is a pretty outstanding movie and i recommend, it is a great fun. And to watching Toma in comedy is always amazing, makes me miss nakatsu... hum, i want to watch hana kimi again!!!!

This was the first Korean drama that I ever saw! It will forever hold a special place in my heart...

This one touched your heart and showed you that love is possible in the most unlikely place and with the most unexpected person. This is one of those that gives you hope for love. It shows you that love can truly conquer all, if you just have a little faith in it. read more I'm sorry, I'm a hopeless romantic! That was really mushy and now that I've said that, I can review the drama. Great chemistry! The cast was awesome. My favorite is Uhm Ki Joon's character (Chae Eun Suk). He was such a refreshing reminder that love comes in all forms. i half wanted Kim Sun Ah's character to end up with him. A must see... again and again and again... :)

I've seen the lead actors in several different movies/dramas, I think they are very talented performers. This drama was so sweet and endearing, you fell for the characters and wanted to see them happy no matter what. There was great chemistry between all the cast and that is key. When the cast of a drama or movie lacks that chemistry, it will come through in their performance and we (the audience) will read more sense that.

Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won lead this all star cast and they delivered! A must see if you haven't already...

I loved this show!
No, it isn't typical or remotely normal in the kdrama world, but that's one of the many reasons I liked it so much.

I will say this: get trough the 1st 2 or 3 episodes. When I started watching this show, I really wasn't feeling it! But now it has become a favourite of mine!! So give it a chance!!

Mysteries are my cup of tea, and when read more mixed with comedy: yes yes and yes!
The story is pretty good, the plot makes sense and keeps you wondering trough out most of the drama, which is the point.
Plus, the characters are just adorable! I found myself falling deeper and deeper in love with their flaws and qualities, their funny inside jokes and their interesting ways of looking at everything.

Acting wise, it's wasn't perfect, but it was pretty great!
I need to give a well deserved bow to Jin Ji Hee! She did a great job, specially in the final scenes of the finale (won't spoil, just watch!!), which where definitely a challenge!
And also, Mr. Kim Min Joon! Wow! Just wow!! He was just perfect. Sultry and seductive, yet scary, and even vulnerable, all at once. I've fallen for him at this point! I'm pretty much planning on watching every drama and movie he has been in!!
Still, all of the actors did really nice in my eyes! Kang Min Ah was adorable, smart and wise, Lee Min Ji was messy and explosive, Lee Stephanie was sweet and sexy, Hye Ri was funny, cute and spontaneous... oh, and Han Ye Joon also stood out to me! I didn't think he was brilliant, but he did make me want to see him in a drama again!

Lastly (I promise I'll leave now...), I think the true reason why I loved this drama so much was the relationship between the girls in the group. Their friendship is beautiful, crazy and genuine, and that's how it should be!
This kdrama made me want to join the Seonam High School Investigators club...

By far my absolute favorite drama! I have never posted a review b/c I hadn't found a K-Drama that didn't lack something with the ending! I was starting to think that these writers had no idea how to end a drama. Then I watched this show... It had everything: mystery, suspense, drama, romance, comedy, and even a little bit of action. And they did a phenomenal job w/ the finale! All of read more the actors did an AWESOME job! Shin Sung-Rok, who played Lee Jae-Kyung (psycho brother) did a FANTASTIC job!

This drama had such a promising beginning and then it went flat! There were so many unfinished story lines that it's not worth the watch.

The story is developed very well, i loved the attention to minimum details.
Generally, the acting is good, i just think that it misses romantic scenes, too focused on the main plot (not that is a bad thing).

Ari's Review on I hear your voice.
Prewritten as the story went along.
I probably should have written some more episode reviews but I felt like I couldn't rate every episode separately, I had to rate it as a whole since of course every episode has its strengths and weaknesses. Plus I never read episode reviews, I only read the main ones to decide to watch. Anyway..
--


Story: from the first read more episode, i was captivated. It was that good, and I am a person who isn't too fond of a thriller or mystery or even horror type of story. This kept me so interested it's unbelievable! I am stepping out of that barrier of watching shows where Ican predict the ending and end up being right. This story is very interesting and I enjoyed watching something that was different. Can you believe I actually dropped this drama before i watchedy, kept it on hold, deleted it and now fially started? I didn't think I would like that law aspect of it either, but, I totally did. It was amazeballs!

Acting/characters: Loved the main lead's Jang hye Sung's character the sassy public defender that you can tell she seriously hates getting hit in the head and wants to take care of her mother. Also loved the acting of both Bo Young ( my first drama with her starring) and Kim So hyun( not my first but her acting skills are amazing, one of my favorites). And of course loved Lee Jung Suk's acting, his smile is sooo dreamy! But seriously I do adore him, his acting skills are off the charts, he's perfect in the roles he has to play in and this drama is no exception, he made me literally cry in this drama and i don't do that too often. and will continue to watch the rest of his drama's that I haven't seen yet.. that are already finished. I also enjoyed seeing Lee Jong suk become rivals in this drama with the man he liked in another drama. ( you will understand if you saw secret garden) In addition, Jung woong In played the perfect villian from start to finish with his mindgames and slowly but surely making Lee jung suk's character crazy.

Overall, should you watch? Hell yes. Although, It was both fast paced and slow sometimes which is a reason I kept it on pause for a while, it is a really good drama and it's interesting all throughout.

(This is my first review)
At first I thought this drama was going to create a Korean version of Sherlock Holmes (has that been done?) but the direction switches and a much deeper and tragic plot emerges. The plot is fantastic and I think it is the strongest aspect for this drama. Although there are mostly dark themes evoked in this drama, I appreciated the light moments that are nicely timed and read more blended with it.
I love the fact that no over-blown romance happened between Cha Ji An (Jang Na Ra) and Lee Hyun (Seo In Guk). In the end, you understand that they care for each other and the pace of their relationship is realistic given Hyun's personalty.
I first saw Jang Na Ra in Baby-Faced Beauty so when I realized her role in this was a police officer, I had my doubts. She is so cute and petite. However, her acting was brilliant to the extent that all doubts were tossed aside.
This is the first drama I've seen with Seo In Guk and he is amazing in this. He never came out of character except when it seemed fit (during the last few episodes). Personally, I think because of his character's cold and unfriendly behavior 99% of the time, the moments when he cried were profound and heart-breaking. You remember that he is still human.
Choi Won Young plays the "bad guy", Lee Jun Ho, excellently. I think the beauty of his character is that the crime he committed is controversial and requires you to really think about what he has done. Which makes me appreciate Cha Ji An's inability to be swayed by Lee Jun Ho's view of himself not doing anything wrong.
Lastly, I feel the ending hinted on a season 2? That would be awesome.
The sound-track is absolutely fitting and lovely.
The moments when Hyun and Jung Seo Ho (Park Bo Gum) spend together as brothers are so adorable.

What I didn't like about this drama (minor things):
The poster. They make Cha Ji An look like a seductive vixen after Hyun's money. It is totally out of her character! Cha Ji An is smart, strong, messy, and clumsy as hell! Make her look that way!

I wish they had spent a little more time developing the closeness of the two cops, Eun Bok and Min Seung Joo. Yes, you get the idea that they are a tight knit team but when Eun Bok "gets in trouble", Min Seung Joo tosses out that he is like a "brother" to him. I felt that that was just thrown in there. I never really felt that those two characters where THAT close. I would have believe it more if he had called Eun Bok a best friend.

The team's outfits. The first time I saw the team I thought they were drop-outs from fashion school. These characters are POLICE OFFICERS and only once was I ever convinced they were dressed for the part. HOW CAN YOU RUN IN THOSE SHOES?

Overall, I recommend this drama.
P.S. It is really hard to not post spoilers but I respect that.

I can ENjoy watching Kang Ji Jwan anytime of day or night. Definitely not what I expected but he cracks me up. He is so diverse and charming. The movie Runway Cop was great too. Had action and comedy and a small bit of romance. But mostly it had cutie pies strutting their stuff. Fun to watch if you are looking for something with comedic action; it was entertaining.

A romantic thriller that is more thriller than romance. From the description and the preview image, I expected a feisty rom-com with some crime fighting thrown in the mix. Instead, what you get is a great ensemble case that tells a morally questionable story of two brothers.

Comedy is well incorporated through out the drama. And while the atmosphere of the series isn't lighthearted, it isn't so heavy that laughter is unwelcome. read more While there may be chemistry between Jang Na Ra (Cha Ji An) and Seo In Guk (Lee Hyun)--and maybe a few other cast members,-- the viewers never truly experiences it because romance is minimal at best with each episode containing just enough romance to keep ships sailing.

By the end, I was left feeling oddly teased, somehow inspired and thoroughly entertained. Overall, although this is not the type of drama I typically watch this drama it is credit to it's cast and crew, especially the writers. The plot felt well thought out and well developed and the characters felt realistic in their motives and flaws.
