This is a drama about how our conman, Sa Do Chan, who concidentally also looks like Baek Joon Soo- a prosecutor. Due to a number of circumstances, he ends up taking Joon Soo's spot while also having to deal with our main female -Oh Ha Ra, another prosecutor. I think this drama was fun and clever and I never felt it dragged. I like the smart villains were out smarter.
Many of us may consider this drama as Jang GuenSuk's comeback to dramas (apart from his side character in Hwayugi). Now this is one I can call one heck of an actor! Played as both Sa DoChan and Baek JoonSoo and the execution between these two characters is really smooth, I for one fell in love with all the expressions that our conman expressed *-* Heck, i wouldnt say just a double role,maybe triple? for he plays not only Joon Soo & Sa Do Chan but also as Sa Do Chan playing Joon Soo. Romance in this drama takes a backseat really, don't watch it if thats all youre going in for. BUT the chemistry between the two of them is defintely there, and so visible too. Not forgetting our side charcters! They all were very much involved in this, making a fully rounded team I hwoleheartedly fell in love with. As for the music, I honestly did not pay it much mind except the times DC played out his plans flawessly.
This drama ended as playfully as it started out. Rewatch? HECK YES. I went through such a range of emotions that I would very much welcome again. And a seson two if there is, but not hoping for much in that aspect.
Once again, if you are wondering if you should watch this or not? yes yes yes, a thousand times yes. Entertaining and crime-filled, with enough humour thrown into the mix. Still not sure? Get through episode 1. Gurantee suck in if you make it past.
I found the story nothing extraordinary, but the same political dirty strategy. For 16 hours, they were just keep chasing the same villain who seems very perfect above the law, which is really unrealistic for me. In fairness, characterization-wise and execution are decent enough to be watched and some humor to be enjoyed.
I am not saying you don't have to watch this, but just don't hope too much for some story aspects.
