Part melodrama, part comedy, this series takes its cues from the epic legend "The Romance of the Three Kingdoms," with its characters taking on names from the story. One night Yoo Bang enters a dark, mysterious villa with nothing but a flashlight, only to find an executive of the Chunha Medical Group, Ho Hae slouched in a chair, dead and Jin Ho Hae's niece, Yeo Chi hiding behind a curtain. At Ho Hae's funeral, Yoo Bang and Yeo Chi are suddenly taken into custody for his murder. We're taken three months into the past to reveal what led to this murder and exactly who was responsible. During this flashback we meet Choi Hang Woo, a director from Ho Hae's rival pharmaceutical company, who is undercover to steal the formula for their new drug and the Chief Researcher from Chunha Group, Cha Woo-Hee. The lives of these individuals will all be intertwined within these three months to reveal exactly just who murdered Ho Hae, and why.

This drama is full of exciting twists and dark humor. I was a little reluctant to start watching it, but I'm so freakin glad I did. I loved that the characters' personalities had a nice development as the drama progressed. My emotional tummy almost fully satiated--there were heart-wrenching moments where I was just bawling like a baby, fist-clenching moments where I yelled at the screen and let loose curses that would've made Yeo Chi proud, and painful-I-can't-breathe moments when I was guffawing so loud my neighbor came to check if I was mentally stable.

The acting is absolutely top-notch, the music is currently on infinite repeat in my apt, and I would watch this drama again.

I wished that there were more heart-pumping, squee/cringing moments--that kind that make you feel embarrassed and avert your eyes to give them privacy. But that's just me.

If you enjoy having a characters of the following variety:
love-to-hate, endearing, kick-ass, hilarious, hopelessly tragic, and one-you-watch-bc-you-fell-in-love-with-them-in-a-diff-drama/movie/etc

THEN THIS IS THE DRAMA FOR YOU!! ;D

I've watched this drama right after Padam Padam. Their trailer before was so different that I don't know why I was magnetized to watch it. :D LOL! I love the twist of this drama 'cause it won't give you any dull moments especially for the first few episodes that'll make you burst into laughter! 100 percent!!! You'll love Lee Bum Soo (GIANT) and Jung Ryeo Won's (My Name Is Kim Sam Soon) love and hate relationship in this drama. Give it a try to watch this and you'll love it too.
