I didn’t expect there to be so much blood in this drama. It was a bit unsettling. My stomach was constantly churning while watching the gory crime scenes and mangled bodies. But that was my own fault because I was usually eating something when watching dramas haha.
Anyways, yeah…lots of blood and mangled, creepy bodies. The censoring helped but at the same time you could still kind of see it. I wish they didn’t censor knives though. So ridiculous that knives are censored but not guns. Okay Korea.
There wasn’t much crime solving to this as I was expecting it. It was more of responding to crimes as they are happening/happened. It gets really nerve wracking watching the perpetrator get closer and closer to the victim or just watching them beat the victim up. Plenty of times I had to stop watching because it just got too intense for me. This drama gets really dark and psychotic crazy. It’s serious 100% of the time.
Overall, it was a really good drama! I would recommend it to those who likes fast-paced action crime dramas. This drama is kind of dark and serious and there’s a lot of blood so please keep that in mind if those things bother you.

I don’t think I have any complaints about this drama at all? Except maybe the ridiculousness of censoring knives…the bodies are creepy as fuck too ><
I noted Jang Hyuk’s slurring in the first few episodes and a commentor pointed out that it could be because of his character being depressed and consistently drunk. But I’m not sure that’s the case because even till the end, he still had the slurring speech. Might just be how he talks…lol. I got used to it so it wasn’t as noticeable. Though it doesn’t really matter much to be if he slurs or not since it doesn’t affect me reading subtitles anyways haha. But just wanted to note that.
The ultimate boss/bad guy though…is crazy. Like literally. The ending made me go wtf too because it looked like a dream sequence but did he really die like that?
