  1. 1 : tigerb Says:

    guess this drama is confusing/not interesting enough for a lot of viewers?

  2. 2 : Ling Says:

    Great start. Great acting.
    Can Lee sung min get any rattier?

  3. 3 : Ling Says:

    Shim Eun kyung brilliant

  4. 4 : Ling Says:

    Enjoying this drama.
    Yoo Teo finally stepping up to the bar. Was beginning to think he was overrated till that “look” he gives Shim Eun kyung when he realises there’s more to her than meets the eye.

  5. 5 : Flo Says:

    I really like this drama, and I’m not the type to watch a drama because of its good rating … I think more about the storyline, the writer, the PD and the actors

  6. 6 : Ling Says:

    Lee sung min truly is a character actor. Misaeng’s beloved chief oh sang shik vs the sly ultra ambitious unscrupulous monster heo jae, wow they couldn’t be more different and played to perfection! It’s great to see good roles are finally coming his way : )

  7. 7 : Ling Says:

    Such great drama. So well written. Captures so realistically the shenanigans of law makers who are supposed to be fighting for the people. And of course, the acting is first rate.

  8. 8 : Ling Says:

    Such good acting down to the actor who plays the south korean president

  9. 9 : Ling Says:

    Shim Eun kyung – one of the best actors of her generation

  10. 10 : Ling Says:

    Some of the best acting from Go soo

  11. 11 : Ling Says:

    Yoo Teo – the breakout star of the drama. Hoping this performance gets him more notices.

    It’s really too bad the drama is airing amidst the coronavirus epidemic, with episodes 11 and 12 airing as the number of virus infections spikes in south korea.

  12. 12 : Sukhipanna Says:

    Love Shim Eun Kyung’s acting here. She is so good here!

  13. 13 : Ling Says:

    #12 Sukhipanna.
    Yes, she’s really good, isn’t she : )

  14. 14 : Ling Says:

    Episode 11.
    Heo jae – “Between China and US, when has Korea ever not been a weak country?”

    Hard truths. The political reality.

    But this is the country of people who donated their gold during 1997 financial crisis to save the country, and this is the country which, during the 2002 Fifa world cup, led by example and cleaned the streets after matches. In other words, whatever the actions of its governments, its people are not to be taken lightly, and when push comes to shove, it’s people will prove their mettle.

  15. 15 : tigerb Says:

    i like this series. one may have ideals to think what is best for the country but there are so many factors which cannot be manipulated in sync with what one wants in the end. go with the flow? no. be honest and don’t be corrupt. it’s sad, that after what happened, heo still thinks he is right. he’ll have plenty of time to ponder in jail.

  16. 16 : OppaOppaLive Says:

    my first law drama had watched, good.
