Episode Count:



Fans of suspense thrillers will enjoy the rollercoaster ride of this drama. The male lead’s stone-cold persona in the beginning had a major character development as the show progresses. All the cases handled by the lead characters turn out to be connected to each other, making the plot more interesting. The secondary plot about their love story add a dash of lightness in the supposedly dark drama.
Hard Pill to Swallow
The beginning of the series can be described as messy and dragging at the very least. It will take a few episodes before you find yourself hooked in the drama. But just when things begin to heat up, the show starts to become a little bland until the last parts of the story. The writers could have written a better ending.
