    This sounds like the American show “Lost” that aired some years back. A lot of strange things happened on the island the plane crashed on. It was a big hit and I loved it.

    This, of course, will be a different story line and charater personalities. Should be good.

    Look promising, can’t wait for it. I’m already tired of The Legend of Blue Sea, know already what is going to happen at the end of the story.
    @ChaCha, episode 1 going to airs on 18/1/2017 and that is only the preview of the drama only. I don’t know what’s the heck they give ratings on the preview too?

    Sanyutip Says:

    Can’t wait! Love it! I had watched “LOST” and “Gilligan’s Island” and seem this show had both of the dramas elements. It’s might exciting story. Intense, thriller and comedian genre.

    Koreanfan Says:

    Watching the introduction, seem like I already know the whole story about it. Their crash well planned by some politician lady named Jo Hee Kyung who want to destroy the Legend Entertainment Group but somehow, Ra Bong Hee survived. Now, she got to murder her before any evidence leak-out. They try to inject some poison to make her unconscious or crazy in the last scenes. Is it something got to do with business rival or her son scandal with that Legend Entertainment top celebrity actress?
    Hahaha! Is just my prediction of this drama, please don’t take it serious.

    Let’s enjoy the show!

    @Mia no offence but ”Legend of Blue Sea” was Boring since the beginning till the end sorry I really love Lee Min Ho but this drama was too damn boring and predictable 😀

    Hannah Says:

    After watching first ep, I blame President Hwang for removing seat belt as well as life jacket from the plane.

  28. 28
    Sally Says:

    Why I don’t feel some excitements in episode 1? Maybe all of them are still newbies in the showbiz, their expressions are so fake. Even in the private plane, they don’t have stewardess or stewards to attend their needs and the pilots never give warning signs to them to sit calm and fasten the seat belts. Plane is going down but they still can moving around. Poor directing.

  29. 29
    Nina Says:

    This drama is look like very cheap production and direction. How come a plane crashed in the open space but no immediate actions by the authorities to find this missing plane? What are aviation doing at that times the pilots are shouting for help?

  30. 30
    Koreanfan Says:

    My gosh! Now, I know what is a cheap production means? So sad, preview presented so well but in reality, this drama didn’t deliver what they wanted to show?

    Crashed in an open-space and can’t located them is definitely NO-NO! “Lost” crashed in secluded mysterious island but this one not even near yet. Funny, the plane wreckage so much but I don’t Jong Ho and Bong Hee got bruises and blood stains. They look superb. Jong Ho got appetites to eat in such tremendous situation. What an entertainment?!

  31. 31
    Van Says:

    Disappointed. Decide to drop now. Come to know that director was Ashbun for Angry Mon.

    Action scenes is good but no the story and their stiff acting skills, make me feel so boring since the beginning episode 1 and now, episode 2. (u_u)

  32. 32
    Kimmy Says:

    I thought this drama is going to be hit if they seriously focus on all the 9 survivors in the secluded island. But the beginning episodes already explored us the only survivor had to deal with a bunch of random authorities whose want her life to end. Then, this story will be boring, it won’t focus us to those missing but constantly flashbacked the past scenes to give us hints.

    I found it weird that Ashbun directing, always added those classic jazz musics which it annoying those intense scenes, turned into comic relief scenes.

    Actor Joon Ho is a kind of goofy characters, he can’t be serious once in his life and so annoying he be around with Bong Hee. Their acting skills really need to sharpen abit when come to this type of thriller dramas. Me too, don’t feel excited to wait for another episodes cause they just joking around with their acts.

    This drama is quite interesting. I can’t wait next episodes.

    syu12 Says:

    I love the cast. Especially Jung Kyung Ho, Oh Jong Se, Kim Sang Ho. They are such a good actors. And my new girl crush is there too Lee sun bin <3 Definitely worth watching!

  35. 35
    Hannah Says:

    I really can’t stand Joon Ho’s character here. He’s annoying as hell. Plus, I don’t really like Jung Kyung Ho, so it’s kinda hard for me to keep watching this drama.

    I was excited for this drama because Baek Jin Hee is the main female lead here. I love her! And also because of Chanyeol and Choi Tae Joon. I’m gonna give this drama a chance until ep 4. If the story still being ridiculous, then I’ll stop watching this drama.

  36. 36
    Nana Says:

    Too many things happened at one time in ep 3. It made me confused and a little bit annoyed with the situations in the island. AND it’s a little bit childish most of the scenes.

    This is interesting drama,uncommon drama i love it. but why the rating so weak? Can’t wait watching the next ep

    HanNeul Says:

    after watching 4 episode, i think i love this drama.. they had uncommon kdramas story (that i kinda tired of)… even yeah the acting and production is cheap but lets hope for some improvement..

    gonna root for this drama till the end…

  39. 39
    Friss Says:

    An interesting but so,show confusing drama, first the unrealistic plane crash and somehow like US drama “LOST”. Initially all 9 members survived the crash but in the remote island things go wrong and one by one they got killed, idk how the storyline will flow, not really a hit drama for sure. I Italy the trailer look so cool as it’s the first plane crash scene for Korea drama.

    The authority investigating team lady is another trash for the Korea government, trying to cover up instead of finding the truth.

  40. 40
    Bryan Says:

    Plane crashing, yet pilots didn’t inform the passengers to return to their seats, fasten seats belts and proceed with brace position. Overall the plane till it crash look so fake, worse than “LOST” that crash scene or even National geographic channel “Air Crash Investigation”.

  41. 41
    Twice Says:

    Wow, given all the bad comments here, I may not even bother to watch this ‘train wreck’ of a drama. This may be a good thing, as I can use the time to do something productive. Thanks everyone, you gave me some of my life back.

  42. 42
    Nana Says:

    The plot is promising, but the writing is really bad. Too many illogical scenes. No wonder a lot of actresses and actors reject to act in this drama.

    Lina inverse Says:

    Love it! 😍

    Simon K Says:

    The characters in this drama are so extreme that it is so unrealistic. The bad guy is just plain evil and keep killing people around him. Our hero is beyond reasonable, someone tried to kill him multiple times, he failed to save the bad guy and he told people that “I killed him”. Really? Then the entertainment company behave more in line as a mafia group, send out assassin to China to take care of someone. Not to miss the government investigator that has absolutely no interest to investigate the truth. Even the name is wrong, there are two more pilots, one news reporter (and perhaps a flight attendant that served them drinks). How is that missing nine? The other 3 are not counted as missing? Consider how ridiculous this drama is, I find it strange that I am still watching. Well, I have not found a drama as good as “goblin” or “romantic doctor” yet, still need some drama to kill time.

    pinoygirl Says:

    thanks god, now only 16 episodes long. can’t wait for next drama

  46. 46
    Jeanie Says:

    This drama really funny, maybe the writer is lousy. Look like everyone is survive on the island. What we want to know now is why Tae-ho became killer and kills all of them? Their actions are still newbie, can’t blame them.

  47. 47
    Kylie Says:

    @Simon K, I don’t think only you complaint. There are lot of people complaint about this drama. First, I thought it is a mystery drama about how the missing 9 survived in the deserted island? But now, is like a thriller drama where the psychotic killer, Tae Ho trying to kill everyone.

    As same here, I’m still watching but most of the times, fast-forwarding. That’s why I don’t understand how and where is this reporter, Ki won appears? They can’t find anything in the deserted island but the survivors keep surface after one and others. Why Korean governments so slow to take actions once they found out the plane crash and missing?

    Simon K Says:

    For those of you who like thriller but find “missing nine” too unrealistic, I find another drama “voice” much better than this one. It is much more satisfying. My warning is “voice” is a little bit more graphic and violent than “missing nine” but the story is very good (except as usual for K drama, 95% of police are very stupid and corrupted).

  50. 50
    Simon K Says:

    In episode 10, when the “entertainment” company hire mobs to storm a hospital openly in China, I have enough of it, there is no way I can watch 6.5 more episodes. I quit. Either the write is brain dead or he has absolutely no respect for Chinese police, don’t you think someone will call police when gangs storm a hospital like that? I am speechless, who write a script like that!
