Bad Guys: City of Evil sets itself apart from its parent drama, Bad Guys. The way the writer ties in the parent drama into this one is simple and sets the tone of it being in the same universe, but ensuring that this drama is not its parent, and has a story of its own that is carried out in a completely different manner and for different reasons than the original. No watcher should go into City of Evil expecting the same story or something too similar to the original Bad Guys—you'll be disappointed and won't be able to enjoy the story as much if you expect it to be so.

The story itself is an okay one, but one that most of us who have watched dramas surrounding corruption and prosecution should expect with a few twists and turns that give City of Evil it's heart. As it gets towards the end it loses some of the plot and some plots holes (to me) never really get resolved or in the midst of so many plot devices, get lost in the overall story. However, the gem in this drama isn't the story line, but the heart of the cast who did a beyond amazing job with their characters. There isn't one character you won't be rooting for, you won't cry for, from main cast to supporting—and if you watch close enough, you may recognize a familiar face or two from Bad Guys. Above all, Bad Guys and City of Evil are the exact same in one area—the teamwork and camaraderie between the characters is really admirable and what I really watch for.

It's packed with great action scenes, and the music score and OSTs from the drama help set a really great mood for such a dark drama. I don't think I'll really ever rewatch this drama much as I did Bad Guys, but I overall really enjoyed watching it and suggest it for somebody who wants an action packed drama with really great acting. It dives right into the chaos and you just get to go along for the ride.

This drama was packed with action. I loved every moment of it. I have a type...and this shows was filled with them. Love the strong big tough guy that can kick ass but for all the right reasons.

All of the main characters were great. They didn't need to say a word...they just needed to beat everybody up. Yang Ik Jun my fav prosecutor. He knew the law and knows how to kick ass at the same time. What more can you ask for? My fav.....Joo Jin Mo (OMG!!!) He had me at hello. He could be put up against thirty men and he would destroy all of them. I knew that no matter what the situation was, if he was there...they could fight their way out alive. Ji Soo (Han Gang Joo) is much better here than in Strong Woman. Although acting wise it was a little of the same but a bit darker. He used his fist to do most of the talking. and Han Jae Young (Park Jin Tae) rounded these beautiful men for me. It was a smorgasbord of these men and I couldn't get enough. I would definitely feel safe with men like them watching over me.

I know it is acting but everyone in that show can sure take a punch. There is no reason why you can still walk around after being stabbed, beaten with a metal pipe, hammer or bat.

Corruption, murder...the usual stuff you see so I was ok with it. At times, I was a bit anxious when the bad guys were blatantly getting away with murder and couldn't be caught. I know it was to stretch it out but I wanted to go in there and beat them up myself. I liked the way they basically created three stories that all circled around the same bad guy...Jo Young Gook. He was very good as the bad guy. He and Ha Sang Mo to me were funny. I know they were bad but I still liked them. Jung Suk Won although a bad guy was sooooo sexy. I loved watching him and Joo Jin Mo fight.

I loved the hip hop music being played throughout. I don't really pay attention to music but I felt it was appropriate for this type of drama.

Re-watch...I don't really like watching an entire show over again after I am done. Perhaps and episode here or a part in a particular episode I can do but not the entire thing.

From the ending, it looks like there will be a third installment of Bad Guys. Tae Soo from the first one showed up at the end. I think it would be epic if the guys from the first drama teamed up with the guys from the second one. They would be unstoppable. Criminals would not stand a chance. I would definitely like to see that happen. Hopefully, I won't have to wait long. YAY!!!
