The story line is so confusing and hard to keep up with. The legal jargon and debating is so thick and bogs your brain down, especially when hearing it in Korean and trying to read English subtitles. There are so many characters to keep track of. The writers keep telling the story through flashbacks, seriously, almost every 2 scenes is a flashback to a different time and all the skipping around has you confused what the heck is happening.

Mr. Queen took me on a see-saw ride with really funny moments, followed by draggy politics and edge of your seat cliff hangers. The cliff hangers are probably what had me holding on to the show until the very end. I just couldn’t see where this drama was going and how it was going to end.
True Beauty is a high school drama tackling the issue of school violence and beauty standards in South Korea. This show had a lot of the same vibes as My ID is Gangnam Beauty. But it wasn’t only the premise that was the same, it is because they share the same lead, Astro’s Cha Eun Woo.
Vincenzo takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and along the way skews your moral compass. It’s a jarring ride between gruesome murders, slap stick comedy and love and loyalty to family and friends. The titular character Vincenzo Cassano, played by Song Joong Ki, is your antihero. He is good looking, has a confident swagger, amazing fighter, smart and cunning and yet is a villain who murders people that get in his way. But he is also a murderer with ethics, he only goes after other villains. He doesn’t believe in justice through the law, the only way to fight evil is with evil. The worst kinds of villains to him are the ones who harm the innocent. His character leaves you in a state of rooting for him, but also pretty disturbed by him. This constant conflict stays until the very last scene of this lengthy 20-episode drama.
