This series has a full cast of great actors. The storyline is good and it kept me interested all the way through. Park Si-Hoo as the lead male was the reason I wanted to watch the series and he doesn't disappoint, though all the actors were excellent. I really recommend this series especially if you like Park Si-Hoo, or any other cast member.. I have watched almost all of his series as he is such a good character actor as well as being sexy. He has a lovely voice too. I don't want to give any of the storyline away, suffice to say he's a Journalist turned Prosecutor and the plot has personal and business intrigue.

Deserves to be watched

Lately I have been investing quiet sometime in the kdrama world, I noticed that many of the highly rated shows are actually disappointing, while on the other hand there are many which are unfairly underrated.

This show is one of those underrated ones. I started watching it for both the genre as well as from Park Shi Hoo and Kim Ji Hoon.

Back to the drama, the plot and story is well written,the way you are collecting pieces of the puzzle each episode is good, also the cliff hangers in the end of each episode was enough to keep you going.

The characters: some of them were good, while others failed to develop along the 16 episode.
The best character from my point of view was Tae Soo Ho the older brother, he was provided a good back story and a good development.Na Young Eun was also one of the characters that developed along the drama. On the other hand the worst character and the weakest was Han Jung Won, she wasnt provided enough backstory so we can see the impact of her marriage on her personality. Also she didn't have any character development through the 16 episode.


As for the acting, I have seeing many actors and actresses (specially actresses) only acting depending on their looks.Their facial expression never change their eyes never reflect the feeling they should be conveying.
Park Shi Hoo is not one them, he is a solid actor, he have good facial expressions and he can convey his feeling through his eyes. That was proven in Princess man and this show as well.

For Kim Ji Hoon I came across him in flower of evil and I was interested to see him in a different role here, though it seems like his role pretty close to that in FOE, so I was a little bit disappointed.However he managed to act his role perfectly.

As for Jang Hee Jin, she was pretty good in conveying the devastated woman, though it feels like this is a almost similar to her expressions in FOE, i need to watch her in a different character, to see her acting skills.

The background music was good it caught my attention, some of the pieces had that classical vibe which I personally love.

Overall I found it a good watch not the perfect one, though it is underrated in my opinion.

Finally, I felt obligated to provide my review on the show due the the little number of reviews posted, and the unfair low rate may be this can help give it chance.
