THOUGHTS

Jenn: You had me at Lee JeHoon: Avenging Taxi Driver. Add in Esom as his possible partner?! SOLD.


Marisa: Lee Je Hoon as some sort of equalizer? And Esom as a smart attorney? I'm so in!! One of the trailers I watched made it seem dark and revenge. The more recent one had music that you hear in every swindler/righteous con man type of show. I hope there's some fun to this - I like LJH when he's smirking.


Caitlin: I loved Lee Je Hoon in Time to Hunt SO I AM EXCITED TO SEE HIM IN A REVENGE ROLE! I honestly don't think I have ever seen Esom in anything so I am curious about her. You know I ADORE Lee Je Hoon and will watch him in ANYTHING so I can't wait for this drama.

THOUGHTS

Jenn: This is a maybe for me…Love Lee Jung Eun and Kim Bum but will have to see what those first eps feel like.


Marisa: I am not familiar with Kim Myung Min but from what I've read, he seems to be an actor's actor. I could definitely use a drama-drama in my mix of shows right now. And with Kim Bum and one of my favorites Lee Jung Eun, I'm expecting some exciting acting.


Caitlin: This one has an amazing cast but is just not grabbing me. It gives me Hospital Playlist sort of vibes which wasn't for me so I think I am going to wait and see what people think on this one.

THOUGHTS

Jenn: Already worried for Lee Joon Hyuk’s survival chances…but with Kim Ok Bin as his ‘partner’ I think his chances are better than usual - even if this is OCN!! I’m intrigued for sure. This pairing plus the SciFi elements are definitely calling to me.


Marisa: I love Kim Ok Bin and I'm so thrilled Lee Joon Hyuk is getting bigger lead roles. This looks scary and the monsters look gross. So that's a big yes!


Caitlin: You put Lee Joon Hyuk, MONSTERS and OCN together - OF COURSE I AM WATCHING IT!
