Commemorating Kim Joohyuk's 49th Death day, a review of his last drama from a fan of Gutaeng Hyung
Korean drama with a taste of Japanese dorama. That's what I got while watching this drama. Not only it only has short episodes count (8 instead of the usual 16), it also has undeveloped romance in it like typical Japanese dorama.
Investigation news bulletin Argon lead by anchor Kim Baekjin (KJH) got a new member, almost-up contract worker Lee Yeonhwa (CWH). Surprisingly, Yeonhwa works very well as investigative reporter despite being looked down by her co-workers. What Argon team has to go through to deliver news item is the main plot in this drama.
And I love it. Every twist and turn makes me stay to marathoned all 8 episodes. The little to no romance actually works for me, since it doesn't pry audience's attention from the main plot. And after the bar set high by Signal, this is the investigative Korean drama that can be up there with Signal in my personal list of 'best drama ever.' #argon #kimjoohyuk #cheonwoohee #dramareview #koreandrama
