Storyline

Kim Ji-Hoon stars as a government investigator in 17th century Korea. Kim Hyung Do (Kim Ji Hoon), originally an ordinary inspector for the government, rises in the ranks due to his single-minded drive. Chosen for a secret organization within the government which investigates unexplained phenomena, he soon stumbles across a series of mysterious, supernatural events, and sets out to discover the truth behind them. In his quest he is helped (and sometimes hindered) by Heo Yoon Yi (Im Jung Eun), a government employee whose enthusiastic belief in the supernatural stands in stark contrast to his own cool-headed logic. Wonderfully filmed and suspenseful, this drama skillfully weaves together mystery, drama, and a little romance in a heady concoction of science fiction and historical intrigue. Written by dramafever

Nifty sci-fi cum historical romance
26 March 2012 | by Miles-10See all my reviews

Set in a time nearly contemporary with the first publication of the King James Bible in the West, this story of early modern Korea during the time of the Josean Kingdom suggests a land in some degree of social turmoil and an emperor who is afraid that new ideas or exposure to new phenomenon will undermine his rule. Nevertheless, his royal secretary realizes that to control the very real phenomenon affecting the kingdom requires gathering as much information about it as possible; and so, with or without the permission of the emperor--and probably with, the royal secretary tasks a government inspector to investigate and write reports about the strange phenomena he finds even though no one will read those reports in his lifetime--or perhaps ever.

All of the phenomena familiar to X-Files fans are there: conspiracies, lost time, unidentified craft hovering over lonely locations, whole villages caught up in mysterious goings on, legendary monsters and mysterious locations. The inspector is a kind of Mulder in that he is dedicated to pursuing the truth wherever it leads.
