    Aigoo… 2 more episodes left and still i’am left hanging if the two leads will have a love story.. tsk tsk… but definitely i love the drama.. i agree with Zia that it should not be an open ending… i still haven’t got over with the ending of Prime Minister and I that ended with that fatal hand shake! So please writers make it a happy ending…

    i wonder the writer try to develop the love line or not….i think we’ll be left with hanging ending about the love line…..
    the production team seems more interested in developing and sharpened the legal issues in the drama…not that i don’t like that…..

    Kim Myung min is really a wonderful actor….

    CoolBeans Says:

    I had high hopes for this drama and lost it about midway through when they focused on the legal details of the financial banking crisis. I feel mislead based on the initial descriptions/synopsis. This is a drama for bankers, brokers and accountants only!!

    Ressa Says:

    I think most of the viewers wants a happy ending loveline between the two main cast. But, writers have their own writing style. We can’t say it’s a mistake. This writer’s previous work was Golden Time (MBC, 2012), and there isn’t any loveline between Lee Sun Kyun and Hwang Jung Eum. But, I just don’t like why some of the news that this drama will include in romance story.

    Synopsis of this drama just mislead me. Actually, it’s a good marketing way for this drama, but, unfortunately, the ratings isn’t good as they think.

    Well, comes to the end for this drama. Unfortunate for this drama, because they have to premiere when Sewol Ferry Tragedy was still on, air once a week for two times because elections and World Cup, comes to cut 2 episodes, because Kim Myung Min’s schedule. Well, K-Drama Industry is tough one.

    We can’t underestimate actors and actresses which potray the character in this drama, and the writers who made the story. It must be stressful and tiring for them. But, as my opinion, for whole 15 episodes, there are some which satisfied me and which not satisfied me.

    I have to say, the writers’s story is depth enough as a legal drama. But, it’s just “all in” there, not out that much. Hoping for some loveline story is useless for this time, because only one episode left. This isn’t same as “The King of Dramas” Hopefully have a good result for this.

    I Thought PMY’s Jealousy towards KMM will make a loveline. But, as the others in this forum say impossible, I would like to stay same with them.
    It’s not a mistake to writer, it’s just dissapoint for me to enjoy the drama.

    What’s with this dramas ending, I’ve been watching korean dramas for 8 yrs or more now but this is the very first worst drama ending I’ve ever seen! Nothing’s reveal about the truth of his accident yet , could he recover his memory? Ahhh — where and what’s the real story end of this drama!😨Really disappointed 😰😨😱

    This drama was so interesting until the ending.
    I’m still confused what happened at the end.
    Despite the terrible ending i really enjoyed all the other episodes.
    I love KMM and look forward to his next drama.

    Jenny taw Says:

    What kind of ending is this ? Kim and intern should have love line. Already I feel that the intern appearance is so little, and now?? Disapointed and fed up – as if rushing to end the show.

    tigerb Says:

    i’m so disappointed as i feel cheated with the number of episodes cut short by 2, resulting to an unfinished ending. i didn’t realize it was the end until i came to this website to check on the ratings. i thought that maybe they cut it short because of the ratings, then i saw the reason posted above. i was totally enjoying the series, the mentor being challenged by his protege after kim was helping people only to find that he originated the plans. amnesia made kim a totally different man after the accident, and i was waiting if the ending would turn him back to his arrogant and smug self. ahhhh, so frustrating! other viewers didn’t probably like the series as there was no romance, and pmy did not have as many scenes in her role. oh well, that’s that!

    MC Says:

    Was very disappointed in the ending. Great writing till the last episode. But for some reason, Kdramas have a habit of doing this. It was a great cast and storyline, but with the ending the writer gave me, makes me fell like I wasted my time. What a waste of such a great cast!

    koreandramabase Says:

    The storyline is absurd and not clear ! I have a good expectation cause Park Min Young starring in. But I got Disappointed watching the ending and thinkin “What the hell with this drama?” 🙁

    sonedaisy Says:

    i watch this drama because park min young.. but i was mislead all the way till final episode.. she had so little screen time almost surplus to the drama.. no love story line at all.. this is the true legal drama.. their plot and line are all so technical..

  18. 118
    angie Says:

    this drama started well, but into the 2nd half of the series the writer lost track of it. i do love political and court room drama but this one i didn’t like at all especially towards the ending. the lack of romance btw kmm and pmy is not why i didn’t like this drama. i just expected too much from what the 1st half of the story promised and got disappointed. one of those drama that makes u feel frustrated at end. all in all, if your a lawyer, financial analyst, etc then am sure you will find your footing with this drama, for me it was gibberish

    arnie Says:

    i enjoyed this one thoroughly , like being the fly on the wall listening in to all the backroom deals being made by those in power moving all the chess pieces to their benefit while a dumb public is entranced by the kardashians .( dissapointing end though)

    bblve07 Says:

    what a boring drama! i think this is interesting due to a positive comments here, i watch this bcoz of parkminyoung and jin yihan, but there time on screen is so short… this drama focused on financial problem and on court only, the
