Honestly.. I am still trying to figure what was the story that the writer was trying to tell in the end? I could say this is a drama about trying to seek justice and uncover the truth behind a case from years ago. Or it could be a drama about how Alexithymia and psychopathy intersect. Or it could just be a story about a young man learning to control this ability that he found. Or it could be all of these, but simultaneously none? Idk I just feel so incomplete after finishing this drama.
The Good: Okay acting overall from everyone. Some were stronger than others. The sets were also nice to look at and there was a nice energy between Jisoo and Sungmo that allowed for certain things that later occured to be impactful. It was nice to see Lee Ahn develop his powers as the story progressed.
The Bad: Characters were story driven rather than feeling as if they were palpable human beings. Useless scenes were amplified and the plot does a lot of tell then show, implying that users are not big brained enough to notice the hints along the way. There was no romantic chemistry between Lee Ahn and Jae In.
The Ugly: Killing Jisoo for no reason but to increase everyone’s man pain. Watching this drama during Women’s History month almost felt like an insult.
Overall, I can’t say I enjoyed this, but I don’t detest it. I feel like Korea drops the ball often on these type of crime/justice shows and it is almost never done correctly. It felt to me like the drama took parts of other shows without anything that was unique or a charming point for itself.
Rewatch Value: 1/10
