The best thing about this show was the story kept moving along, not as many filler dead spots as most Asian dramas. The bad guys and good guys are always coming up with new ways to win. Many Asian dramas have long periods where nothing much happens.
I'm reviewing this in comparison to other Asian dramas, it would not rate as high compared with Western dramas. The fights, reasoning, effects, etc. are a little low when compared with Western dramas. And, I did have to get past the braided mullet that the protagonist wears for most of the show, maybe a thing in Korea in 2010?
I thought the ending was weak, which is very common for Asian dramas. Poor endings make it look like the writers and cast were suddenly told they had one episode left to wrap everything up with half the normal budget. Often, there is never a denouement following the climax.
Overall I enjoyed it more than most Asian dramas, which I generally find a slow moving. But, I mostly watch Chinese dramas because I speak Chinese.
