Competently executed detective thriller that seems to generate polarized reactions
It's weird that all the other reviews so fare are either 10s or 0-3 and the comments either damning or lauding, it just seems to be a normal detective thriller to me. Maybe it's the cross-cultural Chinese foreign student element that creates the huge reaction but since SBS specializes in multicultural progamming you'd think viewers would expect that. A normal well plotted twist-and-turn detective thriller for mine.
