May 28, 2022I suspect for a Korean native the plot is complicated, but if you're reading subtitles it's really difficult, but ultimately worth it. My first time watching I stopped because of continuity conflicts (guy gets stabbed in front left, then later it's the top left and finally it's shown front right). There are so many. The makers stayed true to an emotional thread riding rough over issues of continuity. Also casting for flashbacks becomes an issue when a key female character looks like a professional model with a distinctive face and then they cast a younger person in a flashback that does not remotely resemble her. Confusing. And then the ending while emotionally satisfying didn't make sense given the rules that were clearly laid out and important for the earlier plot development and motivations. Despite so many of these issues, it's worth sticking through.
Feb 20, 2021The show has a some average and amazing moments. The end is ultimately unsatisfying but the journey getting is ok. The last 2 episodes has some great pay offs offset by the last 5-10 mins. If you need to read up or look at what or why it means the show has not delivered a solid ending. The last couple of minutes take it from a 90 to a 75 overall a out of 100!
Oct 10, 2020There are hundreds of inconsistencies. And the ending was majorly shit. Inconsistencies: [MAJOR SPOILER ALERT] The main female protagonist (Ha-ram) has the ability to see shadows, which we find out are Grim reapers. If a Grim reaper possesses a human body, Ha-ram can see the shadow inside their bodies rather than on the outside. However, if the person is wearing black attire, Ha-ram won't be able to see any shadows. There was one scene however, where a criminal was wearing a white top on the inside of a black leather jacket, and she was able to spot the shadow from the front because of the white shirt underneath. However, when male protagonist (Han Moo Gang) was also wearing white on the inside, Ha-ram couldn't see the shadow??? There was also a scene near the start where Han Moo Gang was wearing a white hospital gown, and Ha-ram ALSO could not see his shadow??? A scene towards the end, a flashback of the Han Moo Gang was shot by a gun. At the time, there was a detective with him and saw him got shot. The detective ran to see who shot him, and saw his young daughter lying on the floor with the gun about 5meters away from where the Han Moo Gang got shot. However, apparently the detective just disappeared, and they never explained why he didn't follow the Han Moo Gang, who apparently just slowly walked away??? They also never explained why Ha-ram can see her dad's shadow, when her dad is in fact possessed by a grim reaper. So is a Grim reaper here to collect the soul of a another grim reaper??? Major plot hole. There was another side character, Leo. Who was also possessed by a Grim reaper. He was almost never wearing black. And apparently Ha-ram never saw his shadow. Like piss off. The entire plot of the show was for Han Moo Gang to figure out who was possessed by a Grim reaper. Grim reapers apparently can't pick up remote controls because they phase through them, but they can sit on chairs. ??? And too many more to list.
Apr 08, 2020This is an incredible series that kept me invested until the last half of the last episode. That last half cost it 1.5 stars for finally breaking the story universes rules, several times. It is still well worth resding(watching if you understand Korean)
