    The idea (only the idea) looks like a reversed FAITH. In FAITH the modern doctor went to a few hundred years ago era, while in this drama, doctor from a few hundred years ago went to modern era. #justmyopinion

    Anyways I like opa in shark, he acted so badass but scary sexy on the same time. I want to watch this drama, hope I can see his excellent work again.

    The only thing wrong with this drama is Nam Gil, who is about as romantically appealing as a doorknob. The same can’t be said about Ah Joong. She is so well packaged that if you dropped cardboard cutouts of her in amongst jihadees they’d be convinced they’re in the afterlife and their unholy scripture fulfilled.

    MaxT Says:

    I’ve watched the first 4 episodes and they were pretty good. Kim Ah Joong looked amazing in this drama. I couldn’t believe she was this pretty. :P~\
    Highly recommended. 9/10

    Nonuts Says:

    Kim Ah Joong in the movie “Steal My Heart” a.k.a “Catch Me” played opposite Joo Won. Their chemistry was better than this drama with Nam Gil.
