This drama was an accidental one: I found it online, while looking for crime dramas, and ended up with this one. It’s a good drama with well made stories, though a bit too unrealistic if you ask me. I know that all crime dramas are somewhat unrealistic, but this one kind of had grotesque ones. I like a well-made story as much as the next person, but compared to the quality of the stories, the bodies/props really seemed badly made. This can also ruin a bit of it, but if you don’t mind that, the acting and portrayal of the characters is great. It is serious and has funny moments - so this is your typical crime drama. It has a main story too, which is very nice, so I do have to say, it is a good overall watch.
