Hong Bin is an arrogant man with an anger problem. He runs a game company, and the employees all fear him. He is always angry, and his sense of smell has gotten more sensitive. His secretary hasn't told him what happens during his blackouts when blades spring from his back, and he ranges destructively around the city. One day, Hong Bin goes to the hospital to see his employees who were beaten by him. There, he notices an intoxicating scent coming from a woman named Se Dong. (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

The story is a typical melodrama with some comedy, cute moments, and the supernatural thrown in. I get why the drama was cut short. The story was going nowhere fast. Maybe it was a lack of chemistry, but the romance was lacking. I appreciate the writer's attempt to delve into the psyche of a person with a horrible or devastatingly sad childhood. I also enjoyed the dynamics of all of the father son relationships. I just didn't see the point of the supernatural aspect. The story was just so pointless. It wasn't horrible. It is just nothing special even with all the potential. Plus the ending sucks.

I would have dropped this f it weren't for Lee Dong Wook. He strangely made Hong Bin seem real to me. Through the bad writing and quirky character I could see the man with a warm heart that was so in pain that he made himself and those around him miserable to the point that he grew blades. It is an interesting concept. Too bad that is all it was.
OMG...Shin Se Kyung will just never get better. She had her cute moments as Se Dong, but they seemed forced and in the end she reverted back to that blank stare. I knew it going in. I only have myself to blame. It wasn't all her though. The writing of her selfless character isn't great either.
The other actors are fine, but nothing stands out.

The music is OK.

I will NEVER rewatch this.

I don't recommend this drama. It is mediocre at best. I only gave it a 7 because of Lee Dong Wook. I probably over ranked it.

This review may contain spoilers
I don't know how to write a preview without being spoiler :) so i wil try to make it short.
The leads here are not typical at all , so if you are looking for cool arrogant male lead or cute naive girl , you won't get it .both lead have a weekness points in their personality have to be recognized and fixed.the silence play a role in the drama was impressive , the superpower and the blades were metaphor and choice the lead has to make
I find the story simple ,but indirect
The direction , cinmatography and the music were awesome
Lee dong wook was perfect and his expression was wow
SSK was cute but sometimes i get annoyed by her stare gaze esp.her character needed more expression
Kim kap so was perfect too
The flaws, it has a slight slow pace , the supporting characters were needed to be more contributed . the first episode was over the top .over used of flash backs at the first
.enjoy it ,thanks
