This is the first Taiwanese drama I watched in more than 10 years, and it really surpassed all my expectations. This is a deep, mature, well-constructed story about collateral damage resulting from an act of violence. At only 10 episodes, it moves along at a very good pace with no unnecessary fluff. The dialogue is sharp, spoken by characters who are well-defined by their moral values and dispositions. Most importantly, this drama is thought-provoking and timely—especially for me as an American.

If I were to describe this story, I'd say, imagine tossing a stone into a pond. This drama is about the ripples extending outwards from the stone; but not only are we looking at these ripples, we are also prompted to ask ourselves why the stone was tossed in the first place. It's of interest to note that the title is translated literally as, "The Distance Between Us and Evil," which really says a lot, because a major theme in this series is examining the distance between labels: good/evil, victim/perpetrator. In the end, the story serves as a wakeup call for society, a reminder that we all tread between the lines.

I would recommend this to those who prefer serious, heavy dramas that bring important topics to the table and enjoy character studies. This is produced by HBO Asia, so those with HBO subscriptions may be able to access it; if not, hopefully subtitles surface soon.
