Stellar, thriller, romantic & out of this world!
Kim Go eun is my absolute favorite thing about this show along with the script, other supporting cast and Lee Min Ho King character. Go Eun adds the much needed emotions to Kdramas. She is such a breathe of fresh air! Simply cannot take my eyes of her. She is natural and couldnt imagine anyone else for this strong role. Quote, Thankfully she isn't just another damsel in distress looking to be saved. In line with her character, she is everything a police detective should be: observant and skeptical, in relentless pursuit of the truth, unquote. The show in itself is fairly unchattered concept which is another breathe of fresh air. I had to rewatch all episodes because they are THAT good and each has a bit of easter egg in it. Goblin, descendants, Mr Sunshine and now The King, Kim Eun-sook you are a genius and more!
