The story line of this drama/sitcom wasn't the best, I did want to know more about it but couldn't be bothered to watch all 10 episodes- the only reason I kept watching this is because I'm a fan of Choi Minho (I'm guessing 98% of the watchers are Shawols, just like me). The actors couldn't really do a good jobs with this drama, I've seen many of them in different movie/dramas and they were great- it's just that they couldn't do anything amazing with the badly written story line, non of the characters were realistic and that annoyed me. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend you wasting your time with this drama unless you are very, very, very (and I mean extremely) bored.

Salamander-Man

The idea of a gang pretending to be fortune-tellers to scam people sounded promising, but the show had a hard time keeping up a consistent comedic rhythm throughout. It tried to mix in this absurd humor and wacky scenarios, but most of the jokes felt like they were pushed and stretched too thin. They turned more stale the longer they kept going. While the characters may have been acceptable but they lacked in verity, more archetypes were needed to bring the comedy to life and create a more interesting dynamic. It could've been a bigger problem if the runtime was to be longer. Anyway, even though there were some moments that showed off creative thinking and quirky charm, it just couldn't keep that interesting premise going.
