    WYWS Says:

    For the past drama of Suzy I can say that she’s doing really good in this drama. I really admire all her hardships despite of all the criticism of the salty haters of her she keeps on going! Fighting our Bae :*

    I wonder if woo tak is related to Jung Jae Chan and Nam hong joo when they were young.

    Dina5765 Says:

    Actually i really like this drama..but i dont know, not like any LJS’s drama, until now i can’t feel any chemistry between suzy and LJS, sorry if i’m mistaken. But we’ll see until then. Fighting!

    Era Says:

    wonder why suzy is still bad in acting. I love this drama, but suzy. she ruins the drama with her bad acting. beautiful isnt enough. look at the rating. lee jong suk is ma wish

    JustAPasserby Says:

    Geez, some ppls here always love to shade on Suzy.. some of u blame Suzy for the low ratings? pls take a look with who WYWS being rivals..
    Hospital ship always come 1st with 2 digits now having a neck to neck ratings battle..
    we got the lowest rating as well as other dramas, it’s bc of Chuseok and baseball season..
    if u only grading the drama with the ratings only then almost all dramas are flop too then.. since all drama kinda having low ratings as well.. even TOL has struggles now against WC..

  11. 61
    random Says:

    if the ratings bad it’s all Suzy fault, when the rating up suddenly it’s somebody work..
    hmm.. so far the knets even on Nate are praising WYWS and Suzy acting..
    if u just see a drama bc of the rating it will be ur lose..
    this is the lowest Suzy dramas rating so far as well, but it’s not due on Suzy acting LOL, there are various reasons for that.. and guess what despite that it still hold the 1st place in it’s time slot, even has the most buzz worthy dramas in 3 consecutive weeks,
    if u just judge someone acting just based on the drama ratings, I highly doubt it..

    Neni Says:

    I love bae suzy.. As a singer, performer, dancer. She’s so beautiful, i love her group as well, their songs. But.. As an actress, it doesn’t suit her. I’m trying to watch this drama, because of LJS of course, n i don’t expect that much from suzy. It’s just to bad.. Because this drama could have better rates if…(you can guess it yourself b’cause it’s too painful) just trying to be honest. In my office… There are 5-6 people who love kdrama, especially LJS. But all of them don’t want to watch this drama. Great story but no chemistry, i love the villain and LJS.

    lululu Says:

    I think all idols turn actresses always get underestimated by public. They need time to prove their qualities.

    Tbh, I dont like Suzy as actress (I’ve watched her dramas since Dream High tho). But, I think WYWS is her best performance so far. I like her character here. Her acting improves too.

    I love WYWS. One of the best kdramas so far in 2017 for me.

    lestari Says:

    I like Suzy as an singer too, and I don’t see any progress in her acting in this drama (sorry for Suzy fans). Jung Eun Ji from A Pink and IU are so much better in acting than her, but in my opinion Suzy is a golden child in Korean Entertainment Industry so she is always having first opportunity to get involved in good dramas I think JYP must focus to improve her acting, because despite of her lacking in acting, she is a humble, nice and beatiful person that makes her popular.

    DeeAn Says:

    I can’t feel the cemistry betwen LJS and BS. They acting just so-so. Poor LJS the caracter not strong enough.
    BS face so flat on every emotion.
    Love the second lead actor police officer woo tak 😍😍

    tigerb Says:

    thought reading the comments would make me decide if i should watch this series based on the plot and story line, however most comments are about the lead actress. how unhelpful!

  17. 67
    Hannah Says:

    I don’t hate Suzy, but I don’t love her as an actress too. She’s the kind of idol-turned-actress who I don’t feel excited nor annoyed when she’s cast in a drama. However, I’d say that she has IMPROVED a lot in this drama. I love her in this, BUT I think she needs to work more on her crying scenes, it seems forced. Other than that, I’m starting to respect her as an actress, not just an idol. Fighting Suzy!

    damacrazy Says:

    I must say im not a fan of suzy but i am loving her in this. she is daebak in this drama

    Simon K Says:

    @tigerb, if you don’t care about who is the male and female lead, I would strongly recommend this drama based on story and directing. The story is not totally novel but there are enough twist and turns here and there. I also appreciate the way the director tell the story. Give it a chance unless you are one of those people who don’t like Suzy regardless of how she perform.

    Kdramaqueen Says:

    the rating so bad…

  21. 71
    tigerb Says:

    thanks, Simon K (#69) for giving me your thoughts on this series. don’t care much for suzy, or any other s.k. actor these days. just want to watch something different, hopefully not boiler plate.

    Yoly wang Says:

    Like Kyung Sang and Sung Kyung cameo …they are so funny…hope to see them paired up in a comedy drama!

    hana_goh Says:

    this drama is worth watching..if you don’t care about the rating or how other people think about suzy bad act all this time.. i enjoy this drama so i think it good to watch.. love the dreaming scene, love the funny scene.. Especially in this drama we can’t find cool LJS (like berfore in W or Doctor Stranger or Pinocchio), love his characters as not perfect man, but still awesome as poor and dirty prosecutor… recommended.. hwaiting all cast!

    sanjinyeon Says:

    Up to the last episode Kim Won Hae and Lee Jung Suk make me cry, but my tears are all tears of joy because the story is good and the ending is nice, all the actors and actresses who played their characters are all great, so every drop of my tears are worth falling for this kdrama.

    this drama really really recommend… you must watch!!

    Simon K Says:

    I totally agree with #76 that the story was not too heavy, the director and writer shown some restrain, not like typical Korean drama. There are many illogical plots everywhere (like the prosecutor drinking beer with witnesses the day before the trial or personally prosecute someone who assault him). It probably will not become a classic that people still watching after 5 years but it certainly worth watching if you have not done that yet.
