Starts out OK but really slows down after first 3 episodes.
7 May 2012 | by Windsun33See all my reviews

Unfortunately, this series starts out fairly well, but then about 1/3 of the way through it really starts going downhill.

If the series had stuck to the main plot and characters it would have been OK, but the introduction of never-resolved subplots, and totally extraneous characters ended up spoiling it for me. For example, far too much time was spent on the totally air-headed presidents daughter, who added nothing at all to the story, and is left at a dead end. Flashbacks were way overdone - it seemed like the object was to fill up space rather than advance the plot.

In general, the main plot and most subplots are so full of holes and unresolved issues that have to wonder if 3 hours or so was assembled from outtakes to fill the alloted number of episodes.

If you are a Korean Drama fan, "Lie to Me" and "My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" are much better choices.

The series started out like "The Dirty Dozen" and ended like the purple dinosaur "Barney Goes to School" video.
