His external actions contrast with his inner turmoil and, finally, he is filled with self-loathing at his revenge's successful result. Written by
Unusual and worth a watch but ultimately unsatisfying.
This is a strange story with some very dark themes. It starts of with the plot looking a little like Dangerous Liaisons but moves into different territory as it progresses.
There are a few surprises as we go a long, there is a little humour and the lead actress is very beautiful.
The acting is mostly good especially from the two leads, the actress playing Dajung is the weakest cast member and is often unconvincing.
Unfortunately it does move into more melodrama as it progresses and becomes a bit to much like soap opera at times.
They also should have ended it one episode earlier, everything was tied up and resolved and then they added an extra episode of very confused plot that tries to inject some pathos but instead comes across as very contrived.
It was worth watching once but I can't imagine wanting to re-watch it.
