Cast & Credits
Pros: there are a host of characters with unique personalities and methods. The acting is superb and totally believable. You completely believe these characters are who they are. This drama allows a cool inside look into crime, loan sharking, corrupted officials and the underworld.
Cons: The lead female is clueless and is constantly tricked. Each episode is the same, a problem is presented the lead tries to solve it, she requires someone’s help to resolve the problem, they solve it together, and she is tricked again. Although the lead character attempts to be a robin hood; it seems like she is constantly thwarted and is unable to accomplish any real goals. What annoyed me the most is there are no characters who have positive relationships and everyone seems to be very selfish.
The verdict: This drama was bleh. I fast forwarded my way through it unable to take how bored I was with watching the same person being tricked over and over again. Additionally I have begun to appreciate the side stories that other dramas usually develop. I think this drama is best for people who like problem solving and trickery; as for someone like me who likes dark comedies or rom-coms this wasn’t a good fit.
