Likes: Detective, serial-killer mystery is my cup of tea so this one was a treat! And it’s a great one at that. When I started watching the first episodes, the whole series was almost done. So I don’t have to wait for a week for 2 new episodes to air. I could watch straight away! Which was good so I could focus on the story. And yeah this is such a brilliant story covered in intricate web of mysteries. This didn’t end with the capture and death of the serial killer. It went on and like me, you’ll be surprised!
Consistently good. Every episode was great. It was always a teaser. It makes you suspect everyone. It makes you try to solve the puzzle on your own. It was so engaging.
Cliffhangers. And of course it always end with a really good cliffhanger which makes you want for more! I have a 1-episode per night watching rule and this series made me watch 2 in one night! Soo good that it’s bad 🤭.
The OST. Even the soundtrack is awesome. It adds to every suspense. I especially like the one with the guitar by Ha Guen Young & Very Berry. The main song is also sooo good, Timeless! Or just listen to the complete Beyond Evil OST.
The brilliant cast. It’s rare to see a lot of stand out characters in one show. It’s normally focused on the leads and their roles. In this drama, you’ve got to keep up with every character because they’re just as important as the leading men. Everyone was brilliant which makes this drama a gem.
The leads. But these 2 were beyond awesome…
Shin Ha Kyun as Lee Dong Sik – Oh my gosh, I find him gorgeous! Is it the age, the wrinkles, the messy hair, the voice, the crazy smile, him wearing the uniform, maybe all combined! He is such a fine actor. I love him here as Lee Dong Sik, a police officer who almost lost all hopes finding his missing twin sister. And on the road to finding her, he realizes people very close to him have got something to do with her death. He had to hang on to the last strand of his sanity. Very well portrayed Shin Ha Kyun, love this guy!
Yeo Jin Goo as Han Joo Won – I’ve been watching this guy since he was this young crown prince in an older period kdrama. He had great potentials back then! He turned out to be one of the best young kdrama actors and he’s been consistent through the years. I knew he would do good… no actually great here. I wasn’t disappointed! As Han Joo Won, he showed arrogance from being well-educated and well to do. He realized the hard way he could only learn and understand people and situations from experience. He was a junior of Lee Dong Sik, loathed him at first but ended up teaming up with him. This just shows, a young Yeo Jin Goo could be as competent as the veteran Shin Ha Kyun. Well done!
In addition, these two acting – especially when they were bickering were a scene to behold! Their characters were so good with words. No one would want to back down and they could go on forever. Just love these two!
The big arrest. I thought that was very dramatic with all those gun pointing and missed shooting. It was nerve-racking!
The sentimental arrest. The very last scene (I’m not gonna mentioned who got arrested), it was moving. Made me cry too 😥.
The epilogue. I was so happy to see what happened a couple of years later. It was short but that was enough. It was a good closure.
Dislikes: Nothing to dislike. It was great from start to finish!
