A painter gets diagnosed terminally ill. On his 58th birthday, he plans to share his last will and testament. His great legacy and immense fortune slowly draw out his family's inner greed, causing a fierce mental battle amongst them. There are too many people around him who are only after his legacy; including his ex-wife, Ji Sul Young, who has taken care of him, Kim Ji Hye, a former mistress and mother to his daughter, and Dokko Chul, a halfbrother from a different father. They face different outcomes by the different choices they make as their greed overwhelms them. What are the limits of human greed? (Source: Viu) Edit Translation

Not who, but why

It's a pretty decent drama. Some might feel that 8 episodes are few too many for this whodunit setting and I agree but the makers of this drama actually pulled it off and delivered an acceptable outcome. I also think that the length of the episodes helped to get a better understanding of the characters involved. Somewhere around halftime the plot does get a little draggy, but nonetheless the suspense was maintained and especially the last two episodes were surprisingly emotional and entertaining.

I also liked the cast; even though they embodied the stereotypical suspects and seemed character- less and plain in the first episodes, learning about their possible motives and their background stories made oneself sympathise with them. I especially liked the actress who played Bit Na's mother and overall I think the cast did a pretty good job given the limited scope they had to show 'real' character and emotions.

I liked how in the end the focus wasn't set on who actually did it, but on why someone would feel urged to take such an action.
Worth giving it a watch.

United family

Likes
1. Only 8 episodes but every episode was so good! I love murder mysteries so it was so much fun trying to solve the puzzle. Happy that my initial guesses were almost correct, except for the plan and reasons.
2. The family members started off as distant and sometimes antagonistic but they slowly bonded (or at least learned to understand each other) after everything that has happened. It took the death of the most powerful and toxic member of the family for them to "unite".
3. In the end it didnt matter who killed Inho, what mattered was he was exposed for the kind of monster that he really is. It felt like they were finally free of him when they decided to let go of the inheritance.

Dislikes
I felt bad for what happened to one of them and I wish she/he got (and felt) the recognition he/she rightly deserved.

Rating: 9/10
