Kim Baek Jin is a popular anchor, reporter, and leader of investigative reporting program Argon. He does not tolerate unverified reports and requires facts he can personally stand behind. He also demands this standard of journalistic integrity from his team, who often call him "the Psycho" behind his back.

After Kim Baek Jin's team reports on a story that Argon's broadcast station's higher-ups disapprove of, the program is bumped to the midnight slot and Kim loses of his senior reporter. Lee Yeon Hwa is a rookie contract reporter who's assigned to the team to replace him, and she works hard as she's always looked up at Kim Baek Jin as a role model from afar. The team at Argon grows through many trials as they struggle to tell true and meaningful news stories that the public needs to hear—all while the broadcast company tries to undermine their goals at every turn.

That’s my first review , I hope you find it helpful. I tried my best.
The drama is so good .
Kim Joo Hyuk‘s character (kim beak jin ) was an anchor who only tells the truth and because of that they changed his position form nine news to midnight news . Argon team is the most heated team in the news station . They asked for some new staff so they brought them Chun Woo Hee’s character(lee yeon hwa). She only had three months left for her contract to end and she wasn’t qualified .The team was so upset and gave her a hard time at first. Her dream was to write her first report.
The first episode was how to make Pinocchio drama in one episode :D .
A Building was collapsed so to covered it up they made another news about a worker run away from the scene . The other news channel and 9 news in the same channel left the collapsed building news and only focused on the running away man.
Arogan team didn’t do that . They continue the investigation and found out the truth . The truth was related to some politicians and businessmen so the news station tried to make the team stop . Lee yeon hwa found out a new lead and told kim beak jin . He gave her first assignment to find out more info and keep it for the others . She started to become more confident and working so hard to make her dream true. (That’s the main topic). There are other news and you will find out more about the characters in each episode . The drama is so interesting . I love The teamwork here . I wanted more episodes . :((
This drama makes me sad thinking about kim Joo Hyuk . It was his last drama :( . He made his best till the end . RIP :(
I hope you found my review helpful cause it’s been a while since I saw it .
If you have any problems with this review tell me .
I hope you have a nice time watching it .

edit : add disclaimer --- just in case you think why gave such low rating. i could rate a drama as high as 10 or as low as 1. so a 6 is basically average. i notice some people give 8 for average drama---

the pacing and storyline feels weird for a drama with just about 8 hours screentime. given how many the cases were there it make this drama feels slow and rushed at the same time.
it also have a weird screentime distribution between each cases. i mean like the main plot was introduced at the start then went into hibernation until really late eps with not much development inbetween them. it feels really weird how they give a big main plot at the start but then the following cases have little to no relation to the case big case. its like watching Stranger at the start then switch to Ms. Hamurabi and the switch back to Stranger again for the ending. It just weird man.

i also dont like how everyone in the Argon was like hypocrite (well except yeon hwa).
everyone have a jerk side to themselves and i expect some character development but then by the end of the series it feels like the developments dont any meaning. like no real redemption except for one or two.

last thing and why i decided to write (read : rant) is lee yeon hwa. it make me mad how she is underappreciated by and doesnt give enough credit from her colleague through out the whole series (except by "psycho"). she has done so much and they barely notice or show her anything. i mean most of the case were started to uncover because her tenacity and persistence . and the fact she doesnt get enough screentime despite how important her role. but the funny part is because she is flying under the radar through the whole series she could get the job safely.
