8 episodes in and I am enjoying almost every thing about this police procedural. I like the quirky male lead, the detective team that has unofficially adopted him and the surgeon that shares his past.

What I personally don't care for is how they're gunning for a romance between Jing Tian (the entomologist)  and Jin Ling (the coroner)... they don't give off the right kind of vibe quite frankly. Honestly she seems more like a bigger sister to him. The surgeon, Wen Bai, would be a better fit for her. 

 

Honestly the romance is unnecessary especially when the bromance is far superior.

Started this series just only. I think the drama quite unique and very informative. 

 

The ep 1-3 case with ants pretty interesting. The Amazon's ritual for celebrating boy grow up is so gruesome, and the bad news this is true story.

 

The ep 4-6 even more interesting, it's first time for me to hear about nyotaimori.

I think everytime Jing Tian appeared, the case also follow him? 

 

Note :

The ML looked really young! I checked the actor is 23 y.o. But he really looked like underage 😅. In the drama, he's a postgraduate, not too sure how old is he? The FL indeed looked like a da jie for him, eventhough the actress is 28 y.o. Heard there will be romance? I'm also not too sure, but we'll see.
