This 18 episode drama sucked me in like a page-turning novel and within less than a week I'm about half way through! It not only packs in a lot of suspense and action about the gritty, dark side of Korea (think domestic abuse, prostitution rings, extreme bullying, mentally ill parents, excessive and extreme belligerent behavior while consuming alcohol and corruption) but it also pulls on the heart strings as the focus is on the actual lives of the people who work as police. This poster I'm using here does not elude the actual feeling of the drama. This poster makes it look somewhat comedic, for which I'd say overall, this drama is not. It's sentimental and sweet at times, but mostly full of scenes about the tough lives these police officers experience. I'll definitely be speeding my way to the end of this drama. I'm full-on addicted. Someone bring me a donut.

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
