    watching on dramafever with english subs. terrific crime show. can’t wait until next week. I am a big Bae Doo Na fan too. Saw her in Country Princess (2003) and Someday (2006) so many years ago. Glad she is back. She hasn’t aged at all. The main actor plays his role really well too. Favorite current show along with Lookout (also on dramafever.)

    Honestly it is good but already moving a bit slow. If he is supposed to be super smart and emotional defunct Shi mom is lacking? The questions are missing in the drama. When, why, where, who, what; you can’t so if writers don’t pick this up the rating chart will never have numbers
