Fifteen years ago, a female child was kidnapped on the way from school. At that time, Saegusa Kento, who was a first-grader in elementary school student, witnessed the girl being taken away. A few days later, the girl was found in the dead, and detectives Ooyama Takeshi and Iwata Kazuo continued to investigate the crime but the culprit was not found. As time went by, Kento started distrusting the police. Fifteen years later, Kento is now a police officer and criminal profiler. One day, Kento finds a walkie-talkie that allowed him to get in contact with the past Takeshi. Police officers Kento, Takeshi, and Misaki then set on a journey to solve cold cases.

This drama was a crime thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout of the show. And I was so captivated by scenes and events that where showed.

Story:
For me this detective story was surprising and entertaining. It was something completely new and different. The way how past and present evens were connected only by an old walky-talky was brilliant. Story has many questions left to answer and is kept for the audience to decipher on what they want to happen is very intriguing. The ending was unexpected but expected at the same time. I am satisfied with the ending.

Acting/ Cast/Characters:
At first in my eyes Kentaro Sakaguchi was that actor whom I can’t imagine playing dark themed dramas or movies but this drama proved me wrong. The way how he deals and delivers his character emotions and thoughts was amazing.
Also Kichise Michiko, in my eyes, did a very good job showing her characters soft side while still being this strong independent woman who has sealed her heart from the outside world.
The chemistry between characters was good too. I liked how Saegusa Kento and Sakurai Misaki coming into each others lives did show trust build up towards each other and some character development. But I did see some lack in character build up but I couldn’t wrap my finger around it.

Music:
For opening and ending scene is used BTS – Don’t Let Go. Starting this drama, I thought that songs part was chosen weirdly or randomly even. But as I continued the drama, I got used to it and at one point I caught myself thinking that the part of the song might be chosen for a reason.

Notes
I hope we will be able see more of these type of dramas/ movies from Kentaro.

So I got excited after seeing that Japan decided to make a "Signal" version from the 2015 Korean Drama "Signal". After finishing it, I realized that it is practically the same story-line, but shorter. If you want a longer version of "Signal" then watch the Korean Drama from 2015.

Story: The story was as awesome as the kdrama, except much faster paced. The suspense is there as well. However, I would have preferred if they changed the cases to different cases then the original 2015 kdrama (at least a little bit - all they did was reduce the amount of cases for time).

Cast: I think the cast was well thought out, however the main lead seemed a little out of place for me (my opinion).

Overall I do recommend it to everyone including the people that saw the 2015 kdrama version.

Sorry if this comes off as a bad review, but I had mixed feelings from this drama.
