Well since you can read my review to see how I feel about the show, I’ll keep this short. I thought it was one of the best dramas I’ve seen in awhile. It was a great deconstruction piece, that’s very dark and really draws you in. Before you know it your addicted to it. I really love this show, it even made my top ten. But many of you guys will hate the show, because of it’s characters. That’s sort of the point, to dislike many of the characters, but still. If you can’t stomach certain characters that are realistic, yet despicable this show is not for you. However if you’d like to watch a dark drama, with realistic (and flawed) characters, with an amazing story to tell, this is it. And be warned, this show is rated mature on ANN for a reason.
Also the ending was amazing. Try not to spoil yourself, because it’s even better without knowing much about it. But the whole show was great IMO.
