On 2018-Feb-07, it was reported that there was a large dispute on set of the series on the 5th, between lead actress (Go Hyun Jung) and the producing director. The following day, Go’s agency officially announced that the actress would be leaving the team due to irreconcilable differences with the directing team concerning the production process. The agency also denied the initial reports that her sudden departure was due to her physically assaulting director Joo Dong min; stating that “there was indeed a verbal conflict but reports of physical assault was nonsensical”.

  1. 1 : Jinci Says:

    Legal drama again????? But I will watch this because Shin Sung Rok is a talented antagonist, and he will make viewers mad.

  2. 2 : jarlieuy Says:

    ohhh interesting LJW… last drama was goodbye, mr black

  3. 3 : MaxT Says:

    Will watch this one.

  4. 4 : Karen Says:

    Can’t wait 😁

  5. 5 : Evaf Says:

    The story similiar with the good wife at the begining,i hope will be much better.

  6. 6 : Hyeongnam Says:

    Up to episode#2, the drama portrays—unwittingly perhaps–excesses eroding morality and the ensuing reduction in humanity can be seen in each of the lives that it touches. It is the train-wreck of depravity spiralling towards an even more hellish existence by the minute. The drama captures it all too well. The cast is good—very good.

  7. 7 : ulita pepe Says:

    cool drama. waiting for 5 episode but I hope none of the guys killed Yeom Mi Jung… maybe her death happened because of some accident… feel sorry for her anyway

  8. 8 : OK OK OK Says:

    Return drama is nice. so far i am enjoying this mysterious crime solving….. 😛

  9. 9 : Liza Says:

    I really enjoy this drama. It is too bad has to ended like this. Remind me of criminal minds series where the main cast got fight with the director, and being terminate by the team. But the worse is, this drama is still afar from finale, what would happened to the rest of the story?? This is the first time ever happen to korean drama industry. Usually they use pre production drama.

  10. 10 : Yura Says:

    OMG i watch this kdrama because go hyun jung.. so sad when i hear the news that GHJ leaving… i’m like (T_T)

  11. 11 : annmasae Says:

    Enjoying the drama. Will continue watching even if I will miss Go Hyun Jung who is a great actress. Hope the plot does not take a strange turn to accommodate her departure. Glad to see Lee Jin Wook again. Am a big fan.

  12. 12 : Eny Says:

    So good, just watch ep 16, really unpredictable….make us keep guessing who’s the real killer, changing the lead isn’t big deal because the story is the strongest point in a drama

  13. 13 : OK OK OK Says:

    I am chasing this drama – so exciting 😛

  14. 14 : scarlettmoira Says:

    GHJ is a sorry loss acting wise. The actress who replaced her isn’t really suitable for the role. She looks nice and stern and doesn’t deliver the icy sarcasm GHJ does. So far she looks to be copying GHJ’s acting than creating her own. Hope she will warm up to the role because I do like this drama. And hope they maintain the high ratings because the ensemble cast is good and the story material is quite solid.

  15. 15 : didibib Says:

    I miss Go Hyun Jung, the drama is not the same

  16. 16 : OK OK OK Says:

    So disappointed that lead actress Go Hyun Jung changed. Her acting is great.
    Though I also I The new actress acted in other dramas, I still find it so weird n loss the excitement to watch RETURN bc both actress acting, feeling n expressions are different. So sad. 🙁

  17. 17 : Jukbang Says:

    After an unfortunate fiasco .. the story line is drastically change . Looks like an American 80’s thriller drama with a cheap budget.

  18. 18 : confused Says:

    With the change of actress, the story line took a dramatic turn which is confusing to me. The female lead was initially investigating the crime so as to get Kang In Ho off the hook. She was an outsider trying to understand what happened. However, after the new actress took over, it became her story and she is the mastermind behind the killings. Really puzzled how the story developed to this stage now with many people involved who were not initially. Frankly I didn’t find the acting of the original female lead good as she was always smiling and not threatening enough. However, the replacement is a complete opposite for she is so dark and menacing. It’s just so odd.

  19. 19 : nia Says:

    feels like watching 2 different dramas here. first is mystery, then the lead actress decided to go down the dark side, became a maniac with an excuse to kill

  20. 20 : Kel Says:

    I miss ghj. Changing d lead is rely affecting my likeness towards Tis drama… m contemplatin if I shud stop chasin. The lead actress now is good but not as good as ghj. Ghj acting is much stronger with impact in this role. She’s just natural in Tis. But luckily d plot writer did a great job.

  21. 21 : kiki Says:

    such a good drama, so captivating. even changing lead wouldn’t stop me watching till the end.

  22. 22 : Asarainbow Says:

    Ended very poorly. Like writer/director just chop it off in the end. Didn’t give viewers satisfaction of how the remaining 3 evils were dealt with. Especially the most evil Oh Tae Suk.

  23. 23 : Kay Says:

    Fantastic drama! Lots of thrills, angst, and tension. All of the actors were amazing, and the story was so interesting. The mystery was executed well with great cliffhangers. I was glued to my screen all the way through. Excellent!
