    Sounds like a fun drama. 20 episodes though.

  2. 2 : N.O Says:

    Sounds boring, about Corruption! How about Serial murders instead in the Joseon era! I love Korean historical dramas, with all the mesmerizing traditional Korean socio-cultural values, but need more gripping Thriller storyline.

    And please, NO weak & stupid good guys!

  3. 3 : Liza Soberano Says:

    Any upcoming Korean Drama that will be shown in Philippines?

  4. 4 : HeeBa Says:

    Where is Sweet Home posters???

  5. 5 : Sanyi Says:

    Where can I see this drama, it’s not on Viki.

  6. 6 : violet88 Says:

    Great drama.. Let’s show our support to this drama.. Available in iQiyi.. You can watch from this platform every Monday and Tuesday same time as the drama airs in KBS..

  7. 7 : Kenny Says:

    Yeah I like it , especially as the two main characters start to show their feelings for each other. I like the mystery, action and a little humor, not too mention romance. I give a 8 star out of 10👌

  8. 8 : Jukbang Says:

    When the servant has more dialogue and screen time than the male lead. LOL. Not to mention the wooden acting made this drama a flop from the start.

  9. 9 : Pixcake Says:

    Hey Sanyi

    i’m watching it on http://www.iq.com. It’s quite funny despite the investigation theme. It’s L’s last drama before he enlists for military so gonna watch him before he ‘disppears’ for 2 years 🙁

  10. 10 : Cheorin Says:

    The script is about as exciting as watching doggy poop on a hot day.

  11. 11 : minrakyu Says:

    Dramanya seru.. menghibur juga,,,recoment deh buat ditonton..

  12. 12 : Lynn Ong Says:

    This drama is quite interesting. I like the L and Nara for their acting and chemistry. Lee Yi Kyung was comical and a good actor too. What I like most about this drama is the fact that they solve the crimes in one or two episodes and not draggy and boring. The crimes are different and the 3 display skills in solving. At lst I though the royal inspector is not talented but he turned out to be kind, a good fighter and archer. He is also crafty. The one I dislike most is the emperor. He should have more power and fighting skill and not swayed to his ministers demands. Corruption is obvious. Why must he depend on a whole load of dumps.

  13. 13 : Silverswan Says:

    One of the best drama in 2020/2021 . Love the story and love main actor and actress and I think they were all great
    L as Sung Yi Kyum
    Nara as Hong Da In
    Lee Tae Hwan as Sung Yi Bum
    Lee Yi Kyung Park Chun Sam
    L is a real good actor in this drama , and Lee Yi Kyung as usual a comedian and with that good looking half brother , the drama is perfect from start to end . Great drama
