This drama takes family dysfunction to a whole new level. Corporate takeovers, conspiracies, deception, treachery and betrayal are the hallmarks for these nonredeemable cast of characters. Each trying to one up each other on that bullet ride to satan's door. Wickedness and evilness veiled under the guise of wealth and power where, money of course the root of all of it takes center stage with her disciples going at each others throats. Know thy enemy and know thy self takes on a new meaning WHEN YOU BECOME THE ENEMY YOU'RE TRYING TO DESTROY. Spiraling out of control into that quagmire of mayhem these characters reach new lows of immorality. It would be interesting to see where the romance fits midst all this confusion. Taking all of this in though, this drama still entertains on so many levels. As misterbombastic says below, this drama is not for everyone. I on the one hand loved it.
I took a chance on this drama despite the theme and I'm so glad I did. It's more of a romance mystery thriller rather than a horror flick which aims to shock and scare. It draws you in from scene one where we are introduced to the main character along with the tragic events leading up to her supernatural ability. We get a glimpse of what's to come (ep.10) when we see the demise of her fiance??? but wait (ep13) puts a new twist on what we believed to be true. This burden she now has of seeking justice for those spirits whom have yet to move on only complicates things even further. Love the tit for tat between her and Gun Woo which has the makings of a great love affair. The twist with the return of her fiance provided closure enabling her to freely love again. All I can say, is that Hyung Joon's spirit is a class act paving the way for her to be happy with Gun Woo. Not only do these two very much enjoy each other, but they also have great chemistry. I'm gonna miss the fun.
Slow like molasses, yet the storyline is engaging and the characters multidimensional. If you can put up with the pacing of the scenes "after all patients is a virtue" then you will be rewarded with a nicely done unconventional rendition of an HKS showing the struggles between love and allegiances. This saga does well explaining the opening scenes by revisiting the events that caused the fall of Goguryeo and a love that shouldn't have existed. Just like the Montagues and the Capulets this romance was doomed from the start. However, the journey they take to hang on to what they have is entrancing. Shakespearian in concept from start to finish this saga more than exceeded my expectations. I loved it!
