Both are dark and gritty dramas with a similar feel to them. They both have unconventional protagonists who are criminals/involved in the underground criminal world and deal with organized crime, are filled with action, and contain interesting plot twists throughout the series.

written by the same writer, both dramas are filled with action and the dark side of the society. my beautiful bride is more a romance and is more of a single man show, where as cruel city makes you root for more than one single character. in my opinion cruel city has a much more superior storyline but my beautiful bride is also a worthwhile watch.

Both action dramas with breathtaking fighting scenes and all. Lee Min looks hella sexy just like Jung Kyung Ho <3

Antihero male lead who is extremely physically capable.

Sizzling chemistry between male lead and older female lead.

Introduction of a younger female lead who is more innocent and serves as romantic interest.

Cruel City is very much inspired by Infernal Affairs and the Hong Kong crime noir.

Both show undercover cops loosing themselves in their new identity. Also, the line between right and wrong is blurred for the undercover as well as for the spectator.

They both involve crime and both dramas will make you not want to move away from your seat! :) Both are beautifully made dramas. Also, they don't have much romance in them.
Recommended by Drama_Lover
Romance is important part of plot, but doesn't cover the rest, which is dark, mysterious, more 'for adults' I would say.

Both involve people trying to uncover secret organizations. Also, both are revenge dramas filled with action.

Its theme on gangster, love, lies and hurt and "softees" of supposedly hard core men...

Even though Cruel City is about undercover cops it's also about going up the hierarchy of the underworld and getting revenge. Last is also about climbing up the ladder and also about revenge. But most importantly, both dramas will make you wonder what is good, what is bad, what is the right thing to do and what is justified,

Both are crime series & though the story might not related at all, it gives you the same feels: goosebumps & keeps you sit on the edge of your seat since it's full of suspense & unpredictable twist and turn. You won't regret watching this, it truly is a masterpiece.
