Do Bae Man became military prosecutor only to make more money and be successful. On the other hand, Cha Woo In, recently joining Bae Man’s team, became one for her revenge. As these two different purposes shows, the two have very different backgrounds and personalities. However, as they work on the same case, Bae Man and Woo In help each other and even grow together as fine military prosecutors.
This drama came on to my radar after I stopped hating Ahn Bo Hyun from Itaewon Class and fell in love with him in Yumi’s Cells. When I saw that he was going to be in a military drama, I was all in.
The first half of this show started off strong. I was interested in everything going on in each episode but the second half lagged a bit. The ending felt like it came super fast and though I was ready for the ending, I wasn’t completely blown away with the ending that we got. That’s not to say that I hated the show at all, it just wasn’t the favorite that I was expecting it to be.
I love me some Ahn Bo Hyun and I thought he delivered a fantastic performance in this one. I loved him, his character, and was rooting for him in the most background romance ever. The romance lover in me wanted the romance to be more front and center but I wasn’t mad about what we got. Jo Bo Ah was a great female lead. I enjoyed her vigilanti ass and loved how kick ass she was. Their pairing made me happy too so that was good.
The overarching story being told here about Noh Tae Nam and Noh Hwa Young was interesting as well. I won’t say that it didn’t come without it’s fair shares of frustration but I was invested in what was going on and I wanted to beat both Noh’s with a bat throughout most of the show but in the end, the one that redeems themselves won me over. I cried in the end (yes, even when I thought things moved a little slow) and that was a testament to how great everyone’s acting was.
Overall, this drama packed a bunch of action, with an interesting story, a colorful cast that moved the story between episodes nicely. Now, if the ending had matched the beginning in pacing then I think I would have given this one a higher grade but still, it wasn’t a bad watch by any stretch.
