I’m not sure why this drama came onto my radar but man am I glad that it did. I have enjoyed Ok Taec Yeon in every drama that I’ve seen him in and this drama wasn’t an exception. This drama introduced me to some new actors that I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for and from beginning to end, this drama had me captivated and wanting more. Everything about this drama was interesting.
The story here was out of this world crazy. It was one of the most thrilling dramas that I’ve watched all year the way that the story started, how it unfolded, and then how it ended? All of it was woven together so well that it was hard to say goodbye to this one. I’m going to miss the suspense, the thrills, and the OMG moments.
So this story starts off with a jury trial but as we get more and more into the drama, we start to realize that this particular story starts long before that jury trial but each member of the jury trial was specifically chosen for reasons that start to make sense as the drama continues. The above synopsis summarizes the story of this drama up really well and I’m trying to stay away from any major spoilers so I’ll keep this short and brief. Just trust me, the story is good.
Each member of the cast did their thing in this one. I enjoyed every character (good and bad), and I liked how each character had a story to tell, had a part to play that moved the story along. Not one character felt out of place. There were no wasted characters or space in this one so I thought that was good.
Our three main leads led the way and were each memorable in their own way. They each brought something different, and unexpected, and the way that their story arcs wrapped up in the end was satisfying and just felt right.
Overall, this drama was packed with so much action, angst, and revenge that it was hard to keep up with everything. It was hard to get through at points because of that too. It was a really dark drama with a compelling story and a group of actors that really brought the story to life. I thought each actor did a fantastic job of carrying this story and keeping the viewer invested in what was going on. The writers did a great job of writing those plot twists and keeping those plot twists coming. So was this good? Heck yes. Do I recommend? Of course. Lots of great storytelling here so if you’re in the mood for a good thriller, try this one.
