Great story but disappointing ending
28 January 2019 | by mutessshotsneakersSee all my reviews

I was so in love with this show since I first saw the trailer. I knew this was for me because I'm so down for Sci-fi series. Usually, there's not much sci-fi in Korean dramas but this one is outstanding. The beginning of the show is so attracting. It hooked me from the first ep.

The idea of bringing AR game to real life is brilliant. So creative, you could hardly imagine. Movie pace is pretty slow for viewers to catch things up easily. (I wish it was faster like US shows). They did an overwhelming great job on VFX!! The casts in this drama are good as well (they are famous for their great acting). I'm especially impressed by Chanyeol's acting (plays SeJu).

But from Ep.13 til the end, it's full of "flashbacks". They put together cutscenes from previous episodes, which is a waste of screen time. It shows they lack of storyline for the ending. And that's why the ending is very disappointing.

Could've rated 6/10 but because I love the idea, the VFX, and how they film is really cinematic, so 7/10.
