SIGN Review

Title: SIGN
Genre: Medical, mystery,
Episodes: 20
Broadcast period: 2011-Jan-05 to 2011-Mar-10
Cast: Park Shin Yang, Kim Ah Joong, Uhm Ji Won, Jung Gyu Woon and Jun Kwang Ryul.

Yoon Ji Hoon (Park Shin Yang) is a pretty arrogant and rude forensics doctor, but he is very righteous and hates to lose. When leader of the boy band VOICE mysteriously dies, he is put to do the autopsy, but strange things happen, and for some reason is not allowed to do it. The vice-director Lee Myung Han (Jeon Kwang Leol) decides to do it, which is not only weird but something unusual for such a ’typical’ case.
Go Da Kyung (Kim Ah Joong) works for the police, and is assigned for this case, but is shortly after ignored. For some reason the higher ups refuse her to continue working this case, and on top of that she is criticized by Ji Hoon.
One year later, after stealing the corps, and making Da Kyung join the autopsy, Ji Hoon is degraded from his post into the southern district, he meets Da Kyung again, different this time she has become a forensics doctor, and for some reason idolizes Ji Hoon. But the past of the unsolved ’idol death case’ keeps haunting both of the, so they decide to investigate in secret.

This drama has three things I don’t like: tons of conspiracy, constant showdowns, and well corpses… Besides that, it’s pretty good. The story and cast were better than expected, though it somewhat was weird.
The reason my heart rating is so much lower than my star rating is, I really really don’t find conspiracy entertaining, which this drama is completely packed with. People may like it, because it is interesting, and for some reason the world loves when the lead actor suffers…

☆☆☆☆½ / 4½ out of 5 stars

♥♥♥ / 3 out of 5 hearts
