Have you watched this Omona? What are your thoughts?

[My opinion]I decided to give it a try after hearing good things about Lee Honey's character and I must say I absolutely love Cho Yeon Joo! She's a blast, a weirdo with a bad temper and good fighting skills, she's already promising to be fantastic as the 'new' Kang Mi Na. She's definitely going to rock the life of those terrible Hanju people and I am so here for it.
I've only watched one movie with Lee Honey before but I was very impressed by her perfomance in those two episodes. She managed to play two extremely different characters with ease and made them both endearing.
The only thing I hated was Mi Na's in-laws, they are all horrible persons and I can't wait to see them suffer!!!

Oh and the synopsis is a bit misleading (at least from what we've seen so far) when it says that 'Mi Na was a troublemaker born out of wedlock'. While indeed 'born out of wedlock', she's not a troublemaker but a victim who stays silent when people mistreat and abuse her.

Finally for those who watched The Fiery Priest (I haven't yet), you9;ll get a nice surprise in episode 1 ;)

Have you watched this Omona? What are your thoughts?

[My Opinion]Yay finally a new crime drama!! This is another type of show I love to watch so obviously I had to give it a try (and no, it has nothing to do with those pics of Namgoong Min and his muscles, nope, not at all lol) and what a great surprise those episodes were. I loved them (even if I made fun of Han Ji Hyuk and called him Tarzan during the first episode), they were dark, intriguing and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I am now totally invested in discovering what happened to Ji Hyuk during his last mission and who is responsible.
The action scenes are great and pretty violent (so be warned) which is something I expect from this kind of show so I'm not disappointed.

I must admit that I only know Namgoong Min because of 'I Live Alone' (I have 'Hot Stove League' on my to-watch list but also have too many things to watch :( ) but I am so pleasantly surprised by his performance here. He's excellent as the lone wolf type looking for revenge and damn what a physical transformation! Just for that I applaud him, that's a loooot of dedication! We love an actor totally invested in their character ^^.

Can't wait for the next episodes!
