Hard Pill to Swallow
The plot of this drama is a little entangled for the average viewer. The first half of the series is slow-burning, but it has a strong narrative. Despite its flaws, the drama is still worth watching for the entertainment value alone. It hides its imperfections by constantly flooding you with scenes that make you want more.
