Cast & Credits
Story: The premise was a little cliche for my taste. Two twin brothers who feel at odds and are polar opposites? Not exactly a twist. But somehow the writers managed to infuse a scattering of random cliches and use them to create an original and action packed story. It wasn't perfect, but at 4 episodes long, this drama special was a nice watch when you want a break from the cutesy rom-coms of dramaland.
Acting: None of the actors were very well known, and you could tell they were new to their jobs, but that didn't affect this drama the slightest. They all had a very nice stage presence.
Music: Was there music? I honestly can't remember. *shrug*
Rewatch value: The second time is never as good as the first, so I don't think I'll be rewatching. I might skim through it again if I'm bored, but I wouldn't watch it all over again.
Overall: Nice story with nice actors. Not exactly a forgettable drama, but not exactly something I will remember forever.
I don't usually watch melodramas, but this was only four episodes long so I could consume it in one sitting and now looking about at yesterday maybe I shouldn't have. I'm convinced I cried in my sleep my eyes felt heavy and my soul sad this morning.
There was a plot device revolving around drugs trafficking but the real story was about twin brothers Do Eun Chang and Do Shin Wu and how through one bad decision both of their lives are changed. I wanted to hug them both and tell them that it was going to be alright. This is the first time a drama has made me want to comfort the characters. It's a must watch for everyone.
