How is it? I like slightly creepy SIG, but curious if quality is holding up after the pilot.

I do like the show, even though I normally don't like melodramas and I think it's definitely intriguing.

I like it so far. Once upon a time (lol) I watched the Jpn version of this drama but I can't remember that KimuTaku was as creepy as Seo In-Guk is... I'm glad I don't remember much of that drama tho.. no "spoilers"!

I don't think I've seen a SIG drama that I haven't liked. This is no exception.

I still don't know what to think of his character. I'm leaning towards that he's become a manipulative, unempathetic person over time but I don't think he murdered anyone.

Yeah, I definitely agree with that, like his personality is very manipulative, he enjoys playing with people, but it doesn't seem like he's violent.

Yep. I feel like he's a similar in character to Yoo Jung from Cheese in the Trap. Plants a suggestion and watches other people wreck themselves over it.

Thanks for the post, OP! I'm loving this drama so far. Seo In Guk is just so good at acting, comparing this character to Shopping King Louis kind of blows my mind. He is such a compelling presence. So far I'm very much digging the vibe and the cinematography and the storyline. Preemptively shaking my head that Jin Kang will actually be falling for him but at the same time, I would probably ignore the signs and fall for SIG too. My favorite character is Jang Young Nam's character, the brother's friend, she's great and I love their friendship.
