Review :

I must say this is one of the underrated drama of 2019. I think the drama would have been popular if they casted popular idol actors, I’m not saying the characters didn’t do justice to their roles but the drama would have been a hype. Another reason why I think it’s not that popular is because the storyline is a bit controversial in Korean society. It tackles about the struggles of the students and the dark side of Korean education where not only students go extreme methods to pass the exams of their preferred University but also the perks of being having connections and being rich makes the rich students get preferential treatment. 

The first episode itself will really make you hooked. So I strongly suggest before judging the drama, please watch the first episode first.

Throughout the drama, there will be a lot of disturbing scenes that talks about prostitution, rape, murder, bullying and other disturbing things so if you’re not comfortable with that then I suggest you skip this drama because there will be A LOT of it.

Each episode is at least one hour long and trust me it didn’t feel that long though there are lapses, I think it’s good in general. I like how each character grew throughout the drama though I wish the ending was a bit better. 

An hour long ending for this drama is not enough like the ending should have at least 2 episodes? But at least it’s not a hanging like I would have gone nuts if the ending was hanging I mean the storyline is great but with a hanging ending? I hate that. 

So if you want a drama that’s not usual in Korean drama storyline (no romance can be found here), then I strongly  recommend this drama. I swear it’s worth 16 hours of your time.

Will you watch it again?


4.6 / 5

As much as I love the thrill and the secrets unraveled during the drama, the ending sucks (for me) but the ending may be appropriate to some readers so please do comment down below if you have any opinions or inquiries about this drama.
