Alexandria Kim Shins father is actually his brother so a correction should be made also his brother does not hang himself. Little things but if its a description of the plot it should be accurate. I've attempted to get a friend into a drama once and the description was confusing and made little sense. Chae do woo really captivated me, not only as bad guy but a sick, sad and twisted individual and even tho it ends with him as a inpatient it is very clear that he still retains his drive and most likely in time after everything has settled down he'll be back on the prowl stealing candy from babies. Aside from that its a good drama and I'd watch it again.

Tan I think it will be great if remake this drama to saeguk, with kingdom setting.. Becau a Man wannabe king, and a women wannabe queen

Rutuja Ratings seem good, but only 33 votes? :/ still gonna watch this because of Phillip Lee :D

Gasenadi Please, please include actress Kim Mi-Kyung in the credits. Her role as the detective from Seoul who comes to investigate the Mayor's death adds so much to this already addictive drama. (Uh... I've got to learn NOT to read other comments before finishing; there are ALWAYS those immature spoilers.) GREAT drama, highly recommended.

Kevin-d-MaN-yakk yeah ending is kinda vague...i mean major major vague

farah this i want to korea drama should be...great story, great acting with the great actors but i don't like the ending it's vague to the writer and director please make the sekuel..pleazeeee i want chae do woo release from mental ward

cathy This is the first time that i find in K drama actresses are more compatible to the actors , good drama , worth to watch .
