Well, didn't see this one coming.
I had just finished my first drama with So Ji Sub (Master's Sun) and was searching for another one of the same genre with him starring as well. Came across this one, and although an action/serious drama was everything I didn't want, I still gave it a try because, well, it's So Ji Sub. And, oh, thank God I did.

The story developed perfectly along the 20 episodes, although in my opinion there are way too many flashbacks and a few fillers. I loved how the flashbacks were displayed and how the quality was pretty different from the present time action.
I don't have many things to point out except I still have my doubts concerning some hidden cameras displayed in questionable flashbacks. Other than that, this drama got all my attention and was the best company for the last days of my holidays.

I had seen Ghost's poster before, but it never got my curiousity because it had Lee Yeon Hee and, well, I really don't like her acting from what I've seen of her. This drama didn't convince me otherwise. She's too... 1 dimensional. In my opinion (although I'm no acting expert at all), she still has a long way to go.
On the other hand, there's So Ji Sub and his eternal amused look with his sympathetic frown (it does make sense if you know what I'm talking about). Since I'm considerably new to So Ji Sub and thus I don't know him exactly well, I have to recognize he did a great job, but there's another actor that took the spotlight. Absolutely loved Kwak Do Won's acting. I saw him on Good Doctor, but his acting there is far from as good as it is in Ghost. He perfectly portrayed the frustrated and mad detective. I must agree with the awards given to the main cast. So, although I feel like taking a point off the acting, I think of both So Ji Sub and Kwak Do Won and I just can't. Lee Yeon Hee, I want to see more of your expressions. Being a pretty face isn't everything...

I took extra attention to the music ever since Phantom of the Opera's theme started playing out of nowhere. It caught me by surprise and it did scare my at first, but then whenever it played again I would just laugh. But that music isn't everything. Overall, the OST was pretty good. 10 points for P.O's sudden "Burn burn out out" at the end of one of the first episodes.

This drama exceeded all my expectations. Lately I've been into a melodrama, 16-episodes drama mood but this actually changed and surprised me. I recommend it to anyone who likes a bit of action, police-related series and really handsome boys. (y)

So, 10 days after I started the drama, I finally managed to finish watching it. Yesterday, I got home after college and even though I was tired as hell and with a fever, I turned on the computer and watched the drama where I had last left it last Sunday or so: episode 15. I remember having thought 'Ugh, there's still 5 episodes to it', but I have to say those were the best 5 episodes ever! Not once (that I remember of, and excluding dramas that I've been watching as they air) have I been so hooked to "final" episodes.
Overall, I gave it a 9 because I wasn't as excited over it as I was with others like City Hunter, but it was an awesome drama, really, really good, and it was the best company ever these past 10 days! Great actors, great storyline, great filming, everything! The only thing I didn't like was Song Joong Ki's song... I felt it was lacking in some way, but I'm not taking points down from it because Junsu's song totally made up to it.

It's worth watching, trust me. Even though I was really busy (and still am), after I read the reviews for this drama, I felt that I totally needed to watch this — and bless my thoughts at that time hahahaha Should have watched it earlier!
The ending was a bit predictable, nonetheless great!

Going to give this a try since no one has posted one yet...
I have to say the beginning is breathtaking and tearful — if you're really focused in the whole film, inside the whole situation (and in the mood, of course), in no time you'll have tears forming in your eyes. At least that's what happened to me.
The story itself is interesting and it's really well portrayed by its actors and scenarios. I'm not really familiar with the characters' situation, but I believe it must be very stressing and desperating.
The only thing I didn't like in the whole movie was Ji Gu's mother. Her personality is very annoying and that kind of affected me...
Anyway, give this movie a try!

Well, I knew this would be good.
I just didn't know it would be this good.

There isn't much I can say. The whole movie is so clever, so... so well-thought. I don't know why it took me so long to sit down for once and watch this. The storyline, the casting... I'm here trying not to be biased considering its two main actors are two of my favorites, but how can I not? It's really, really good. Absolutely recommend it!
