Cast & Credits
Here's one of those dramas where it's really a matter of life and death that a person's real identity stay a secret. But, as usual, you can't tell from how that character acts. For this drama, I felt like the main actor just wanted all the face-time they could get, which ruined things. If the drama is based on that secrecy, and the secrecy is treated like it's not really all that big of a deal, then you lose what drew people in to watch it in the first place.
Additionally, none of the characters stood out of this episodic drama --not even the main one. It's like the whole show itself is a filler for something else. Entertaining enough, but not captivating. It's not bad, nor is it good. It's just... there.
You know that genre of music called "easy-listening". If there were a comparable genre like that for j-dramas, this would fit the bill.
