  6. 6 : Jukbang Says:

    Chance for going to bed are higher after watching this drama.

  7. 7 : Hyeongnam Says:

    If you enjoy mystery for mystery’s sake, this drama is probably for you. I watched 2 episodes but it failed to peak my interest enough to continue watching. It’s a lot of carrot dangling, but them carrots don’t look all that tasty.

    I think it fails for me because it is focused on the negative of our human nature—scheming, betrayal, envy, lust and jealousy—so much so there’s no room for a character to root for.

    Perhaps the next couple of episodes will prove me wrong. Do I don’t care? Nope.

  8. 8 : John Toh Says:

    This Korean drama that i have not seen just now on ONE channel under channel 820 but it will be showing either this July or August 2018 on MediaCorp Channel 8 from weekdays 9pm to 10pm but it will be shown as the repeat telecast from weekdays 8am to 9am .
