The entire thing feels like just an interlude, if not an OC-filled fanfiction of the prosecutor series.
I mean, I liked all the individual investigating stories and the interactions with vampire-lady, and I loved Lee Joon and all the "good guys" cast and characters. But I was utterly indifferent to the main story. YuJin/San never appealed much to me --he had more chemistry with the mob-heir police officer lady tbh-- and TaeJun was a horrible character with horribly written issues.
Overall, we are left with too many questions and plot holes, especially in combination with Vampire Prosecutor 1 & 2. Especially San's vampirism was barely discussed or noted. Which just feels like cheating, considering the series' title.

I enjoyed watching this edition to the OCN's Vampire series. It was nice to have new chracters, lure and dynamic added to this fictional world. Lee Joon definitely played his part as Yoon San. The reason the series worked out so well for me was the main cast. They all conveyed their chracters very well. The writers did a good job of mentioning V.Prosecutor that has gotten me excited hopefully for the third season. Seeing Min Tae Yoon and Yoon San on one screen would make me really happy. Can't wait for the next season. If you liked V. Prosecutor you will most likely like this drama as well. The action and cinematography are all done in traditional OCN fashion.The music is forgettable but works with the story. Acting is portrayed realistically (within this world) and the characters are funny and loveable. I'd rewatch if I was going on an action binge or recapping the whole franchise.
