Review: Three words. BEST DRAMA EVER. I was so blown away with this drama. The main thing is the plot. It is beyond excellent. Contrary to usual asian dramas whereupon it’s all about shallow love and marital difficulties, it was refreshing to see a drama with a good plot, great acting, and lots of gunfights and explosions. Basically, I got too involved with this drama and was, like, shouting at my computer screen in excitement. This is so wonderfully crafted and I could watch it again and again. The two male leads acted brilliantly and in spite of all the secrets and angst, they still managed to inject some humor in difficult areas. I applaud this drama with hands and feet because it is really the best drama ever. Oh, and the soundtrack kicks ass (see the download link in the ‘download’ category).
