More than the overarching story, and more than the cases of the day, it’s the characters and their warmth that wormed their way into my heart, then resonated and lingered with me.Far from cracktastic, but still a good dose of fun.Still, Hong Jong Hyun fulfilled the need for robotic, mysterious, hot hacker guy quite nicely.I was highly amused that in Episode 1, he basically only needed to say, a couple of times.By the time both of our characters had come around to those romantic feelings, so had I.
Plot logic regularly requires some suspension of disbelief, but there are enough plus points in this show to still make it an enjoyable watch.
CLOSING THOUGHTS To be honest, I was never fully invested in the overarching backstories of Byung Hoon and Master and everything else that went with it.
My interest levels with the cases of the day also varied; I liked some arcs more than others.
While not huge, they did dampen the show somewhat, and I could’ve done with a lot less – or none – of these issues. Plausibility and believability is definitely a Thing that you’d need to get past, in order to enjoy this show.
Viewers of this show need to suspend disbelief on a regular basis over the elaborate dating set-ups, flawless timing over things that are out of our characters’ control, and even character motivations. The balance between the Case of the Day and the overarching story of our characters isn’t always well handled. She made Gong Min Young earnest, warm and likable, and was all-around a wonderful ray of sunshine in this drama.
