4 attractive lead actors are all I have to get began on this present. I waited for this present to return for thus lengthy and it didn’t disappoint.
We now have Ryu Soo Yeol (Lee Dong Wook, our favourite grim reaper) who’s a mildly corrupt police superintendent and received his place by sucking up and doing favors for wealthy folks. This finally will get him into bother. Paradoxically, he works within the anti-corruption unit.
Subsequent is Okay (Wi Ha Joon), a loopy weirdo who’s hell-bent on doing the best factor and simply exhibits up out of nowhere. We later discover out that he’s Soo Yeol’s alter ego or imaginary good friend or psychologists would name it Dissociative Id Dysfunction.
Lee Hee Kyum (Han Ji Eun) is a detective within the narcotics unit and in addition Soo Yeol’s ex-girlfriend. I came upon about this present as a result of the motion/stunt director posted her training on his Instagram. She is a badass and former gold medalist for I didn’t fairly catch what it was for however based mostly on the present, she appears proficient in Hapkido or Judo.
Oh, Kyung Tae (Cha Hak Yeon) is the fourth lead character. He was a cop and finally will get promoted to work with Soo Yeol. He’s a kind A and sincere to a fault which additionally will get him overwhelmed up by the dangerous guys.
This present was tremendous fast-paced in all 12 episodes. It had the identical vibe as The Uncanny Counter, a little bit darkish, a little bit comedian book-ish, and all-around action-packed. This present was an ideal motion drama, a cop present. All of us like to see a corrupt cop flip good. I used to be initially a little bit anxious as a result of I by no means wish to see Lee Dong Wook play a foul man though he does it so nicely. Soo Yeol is conflicted. He grew up with a single mom who adopted him when his father died and didn’t get to go to school regardless of being sensible sufficient. Due to all of his perceived weaknesses he feels he has to do such issues to succeed. Regardless of being a little bit corrupt, Soo Yeol nonetheless had individuals who had been loyal to him. His colleague, Jae Seon (Cha Shi Received) even stated to him, “Why are you being like this? We do all of the work and you are taking the credit score. That’s the way it’s all the time been, don’t change now.”
The plot has a sort of inception impact or sort of like Russian dolls. The primary dangerous man took down results in the larger dangerous man behind him after which these dangerous guys take you to the shell of all the dangerous guys and the supply of all of it. So the minute you suppose you possibly can breathe, one thing crazier occurs. This made me glad that I watched this present because it was being aired in any other case I wouldn’t have slept till it was achieved and I’d have wanted time to return down from the anxiousness from the present.
Han Ji Eun is the final word lady’s lady and he or she was a tremendous cop. I really like her unintentional depth in each function she performs. She went from enjoying a single mother coping with bullshit males in Melo is My Nature to a psycho ex in Lovestruck within the Metropolis to a stoic badass cop on this present. She seems to be like she isn’t going to do a lot for a present if you initially watch her after which out of nowhere she brings this surprising depth to her character.
Wi Ha Joon killed it as Okay. I’ve been in love with him since Romance is a Bonus Ebook. This man is aware of the way to captivate whoever is watching him on the display screen, it doesn’t matter what his function is. How this man with a lot expertise wasn’t found earlier than Squid Recreation is past me! He was the proper dissociated persona for Soo Yeol and introduced the loopy. I really like Han Ji Eun and Lee Dong Wook however Wi Ha Joon 100% outshined each of them. Mixed.
A dissociative persona dysfunction is extraordinarily uncommon and occurs when there may be extreme trauma as a protecting mechanism for the one who has it. Soo Yeol went via excessive abuse as a baby and noticed his father die. He misplaced a part of his reminiscence. Soo Yeol calls Okay he alter ego when he lastly realizes that Okay is definitely him. He accepts Okay as part of him and informed Hee Kyum about him and is aware of that he’s part of him to assist him get via a tricky time.
Ultimately, Okay doesn’t go away and leaves room for a second season. However, do we’d like a second season?
