I wanted to watch this because of LDW but I am definitely a scaredy cat so maybe..... its better if I don't😅

It's not scary as in ghost/jumpy moments kind of scary. Its the characters and brutal scenes that makes this show dark and scary for me. So if you're not someone who can watch eeekkky brutal murder scenes, don't watch. Lee Dong Wook's character is really scary.

OHHHH MANNN I am l o v i n g this show thus far! I am generally not a big fan of LDW, but he’s so good in this! He does that creepy-nice-disconcerting kinda thing so well – & this coming from someone who had serious doubts about his ability to perform the part. I’m kinda loving the ajumma of Eden Studio lol – “... What’s porn?” 😂 I [Spoiler (click to open)] hate all of the cats being killed; it breaks my heart & brings up horrible memories. Im Siwan isn’t at his best, but he’s doing alright, nothin too outstanding. He’s gradually getting better as the plot progresses, tho, so there’s that at least. Can’t wait for the next episode!

Siwan's character and his acting was really doing nothing for me in the first two episodes but slowly becoming more interesting specially on episode 4. Lee Dong Wook scares the shit out of me since he first appeared!

This actually sounds fun. My friends were actually looking for something scary/terror ro watch so I might just suggest we watch this. But I'm dreading having to look for it subbed in spanish because I'm sure it's going to be difficult to find * pls Viki have it subbed, I'm praying *

Not usually a fan of LDK's acting, but he was charismatic, fun and sweet in produce 101. So let's see if I like him here.

I'm not sure if this one is on Viki =( but I found an episode on this website maybe they'er planning to sub all episodes. I saw they have lots of kdramas on this site subbed in Spanish.

The problem with those websites is... they use google translate! Lmfao It's a mess as you might expect. That's why it's so difficult to find, I have to watch a portion of the episode in so much places to make sure it's not google translated. I ended finding one that was fine, they clearly had run google translate through it and then revised it afterwards. There were some sentences that were off but I could tell what they were by reverse translating.

The first episode was do creepy! I didn't expect it to be that much. It's really fun!

I'm not really a fan of gory movies/series so I'm really surprised at myself that I'm able to sit through the episodes. The police/crime/mystery part is making me curious enough to survive watching it.

ooh looks interesting. It's one of the rare ones not on viki or netflix (which I have subscriptions too and can use on my phone) but I will remember it for when I feel like using my computer again.
babyjenkski 10th-Sep-2019 03:28 am (UTC)
I only have NetFlix and VIU (I'm so thankful for VIU coz they sub fast and have most of the kvariety and kdramas that I really like!) but dramanice plays well on mobile browsers so if you want, you can watch it there =)

jong woo is gonna become part of the gang?? and write about and past it as fiction.

everyone in eden studio is creepy in different ways but LDW is the king of that.

the CEO is gonna be his first victim what an ass and that coworker.!!

Police girl is the best we need more cops like her.

babyjenkski 10th-Sep-2019 03:37 am (UTC)
If my senior at work is as antagonizing as Jong Woo's, I don't know if I'll last.

And yes, LDW is scary creepy!

Wow this show is amazing.
This is one of the most interesting drama's I've watched in a while, next to Trap (from earlier in the year.)

I'm so invested.
Lee Dong Wook's power!
He's such an amazing actor, really gets into the role...

Also, I can't wait to see where they go with our Main Character.
I wonder if it will be a slow descent into madness and his inner darkness within will be unleashed.

So many ways they can go with this show, I can't wait to see what happens next.

Thanks OP for bring light to this show!
I wouldn't have known of it because I don't follow dramas like that.

You're welcome and glad you're enjoying it! I'm a bit surprised at myself as well coz I'm not into gory stuff but the good acting made me stay and curious to how things will turn out. Will Siwan's character be a murderer too or will he be assisting the police to solve the crimes? I'm really curious.
