Having solved five cold cases that even a detective with supernatural powers couldn't do, she is a genius profiler. She has a secret that drives her to do what she does. These two highly-skilled professionals meet their match—a serial killer with abilities that transcend theirs combined. It's going to be a fight worth watching.

This drama should be categorized as 'psychological horror' smh... Am I the only one feeling like I'm suffocating while watching this? NGL I'm worried big time about the next episode, hopefully the preview is edited to mess up with us, like they've been doing so far!

Also TWOTM has surpassed Crash Landing on You's ratings nationwide and in the Seoul area and Sky Castle's ratings in the Seoul area. It is now the #2 highest rated cable drama nationwide and #1 highest rated cable drama for Seoul! Congrats!
