When heinous criminals avoid punishment from the law, all citizens over 18 years old receive a text message polling them on whether that person should receive the death penalty. If more than 50% respond in favor of the capital punishment, that person is killed by "Dog Mask" - unknown, working in virtual world persona. Meanwhile, the police chase after "Dog Mask" and three people become involved because of it: Kim Moo Chan leader of the First Investigation Team at the Southern Police Agency, Kwon Seok Joo former famous legal scholar, who killed the rapist who attacked his young daughter and then turned himself in to the police and Joo Hyun - a police officer who has worked at the Cyber Safety Bureau at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency for 5 years.

Solid Antihero Thriller, give it a try

first of all this is way better binged so you who haven't watched it yet are lucky ones however,

in my opinion no matter how far i stayed away from this it kept maintaining the level of good and thrill that it had, it always had me so emotional it's a good one .. for me to stick around for more than a couple of months, and with such a long wait and bad airing schedule and i watch the first ep as soon as it aired and kept on going but it was all worth it in my opinion .. i was so invested in the story and ep 12 killed me ...

so i highly encourage you to watch it if you're a fan of the antihero tope and if you like unpredictable thrillers ... of course there is stuff you will predict but like I think this one was a drama that wasn't like one of those dramas that were safe ... like each eps is packed with some " nothing ever going according to plan " elements which i really liked when I'm watching a thriller not to mention good acting .. (except one thing that went down that i'm heartbroken about )

and regarding the ending in my opinion this was a good ending tbh i like the fact they somewhat gave us a vage ending it made much more sense because had they actually tried to wrap it up i wouldn't believe it .. they did not have enough time to answer all our questions so it was smart of them to finish it off the way they did .. which also leaves a possibility for a season 2 which i will gladly watch ( if ever ) beecaauseee the show was so good

This show is amazingly crafted and attacks the issue of justice in South Korea. Each episode has me on the edge of my seat and I was always wondering who is gaetal? They developed the characters so well and I am obsessed with the cast! I was hooked into this show from the beginning and it got better each episode for me. I have never seen a show like this out of about 150 kdramas I have watched and it really stands out to me. You’ll want to binge the show in one sitting but it’s a really well done show!! Waiting for season 2 ?
