Oh... Park Hae-jin and Park Sung-woong... together again in another drama. With a title and premise like that, it's definitely worth a look.

 

Sounds a bit like The Devil Judge but from a different perspective.

So, I've been watching this. 1 episode a week is really slow, but quite easy to watch and digest even if you're not all that interested 😅

 

The first few episodes were ok, the story plods along. But ep 7 was a re-hash of what we already know - they told you and then now they must show you by flashback 😆 It's no wonder the ratings dropped for that episode.

 

The acting is good, especially Park Sung Woon. The villian is also not bad.

 

Generally, you already know who is the bad guy, but just waiting to find out why he set up the killing vote, because he should be a target of this vote and not the organiser!

 

And, in my opinion, Park Sung Woon killed the wrong guy so I wonder if the show will just gloss over it. But I guess that also shows why meting out punishment without the law is not the way to go.

Why the heck are high schoolers involved in the investigation? Why? Why?

Why is she leaving highly confidential information around the house for everyone to see?

 

So many dumb things happening in one episode.

It turned out the high schooler had a semi-important role hahaha.

 

I like Lim Ji Yeon in The Glory and Lies Hidden In My Garden. She is versatile. But here, she irritates me occasionally because here character is too much of a "smart aleck"?

 

This drama is also too long.
