Is anyone watching this damn sexy drama? I am so hooked on it, and a large part of it is due to Jung Kyung-ho's excellent performance as Shi-hyun. He's absolutely riveting on screen and I love his every scene. Shi-hyun's bromance with Soo is awesome, side characters are well-drawn, music is gripping (love the theme song), and cinematography is lovely.

I'm watching ;) I so love this drama. Not your run of the mill idol stuff. Someone liked it to Ghost. Mmm..
Not sure BUT the story is very intricate. Just when you think you've got it they throw you a curve ball.
I will be with this one to the end.

There's a lot of us watching it but we fangirl and rave about it in other places, sadly... :wub:

Well, we can fangirl here too :D

Jung Kyung-ho... what a revelation he's been in this drama. I adore his every scene, his every move. I can't imagine another actor as Shi-hyun, he's that awesome. And I'm totally loving the Shi-hyun + Soo bromance, so much so that the last bits of ep 8 were heartbreaking!

Thoughts on the bloomin' romance? Apparently there's a kiss (I haven't seen ep 9) and also a bed scene...

This show is amazing. The cast is really selling this frightening dog-eat-dog criminal lifestyle, and I'm loving it. I can't believe more people aren't gushing about it! I wonder how it's doing in SK? Anyone know? :lol

I really love this drama but something is bothering me. Can someone tell me why they are censoring the knives in this drama? I just watched Episode 9 and they even censored a knife that is only used to cut an apple.... xD I'm really confused

Apparently all this censorship is to protect the children from picking up bad habits or something. So on network television knives are blurred out and you don't see people smoking much. Genitalia is also out, as is profanity. Supposedly the rules are a teeny bit more relaxed for cable, but not by much, really. Ironically, there's no censorship of alcohol on TV.

So poor Shi-hyun got both his tattoo and knife blurred.

Okay, thank you for explaining it to me.
Personally I think that this censorship doesn't help much because it is sooo obvious what is happening. xD

A great drama......full of actions, suspense, emotions and mind-blowing twists.

I really didn't like the ending......kind of disappointment for a lot to be build on for 20 episodes.

Also I didn't like the fact that everyone was working undercover.....and no one is counting.
