Okay, I'm *such* a rabid fan of Kurosagi and Liar Game.

From one fan to another, I highly recommend the Korean drama "All In" (it's at Mysoju if not on Crunchy). It's not about swindlers per se, but it's got a lot of gamblers, petty tricksters, gangsters, and corrupt business leaders who do a lot of underhanded maneuvering and strong arming to get what they want. It's amazingly good, one of my favorite dramas now. Very character-oriented with a strong plot (although the ending was a bit rushed). The two leads are fabulous. I'm totally in love with Kim In-ha (played by Lee Byung Hun, who is SO frigging hot) one of my favorite male characters ever (up there with Han Tae Woong from Snow Queen/ Noon Eui Yeo Wang and Lee Soo Hyun from Time of Dog and Wolf-- and obviously Kurosaki from Kurosagi and a few others) because he's *such* an incredibly strong but sweet guy, and the main girl, his love interest Min Soo-yeon (Song Hye Gyo) has a sweet but solid personality that's very loveable (not to mention she's really pretty-- I envy her lips :P). The plot's reminiscent of the Count of Monte Cristo in some ways, another reason I like the show. It's 24 episodes long, being Korean, but every episode is so full of exciting happenings that it's not boring at all (unlike some other shows I've seen). I watched the whole thing it in like two days cuz it was soo~ good. There are a couple good reviews of the show at -- http://www.spcnet.tv/Korean-Dramas/All-In-p31.html -- if you're interested.

Robbers is another drama about a swindler, this one also Korean. I've only seen the first episode, but it seems like it could be good. Might be worth a watch (although I don't think I'm gonna like the main guy as much as In-ha *sniffles* In-ha's hard to beat, he kicks major tush quite literally).


I think im going to watch All In, but its broken on mysoju
I watched Robbers, its a bit draggy but the main actress is great. I love how versatile she is at acting from My Girl to Robbers.

Are there any swindling dramas(preferably j-drama) besides Kurosagi and Liar Game?


Robbers- Its a kdrama about this swindler named Kwon Oh Joon who makes women fall in love with him then take their money. He owes money to these guys who give him 3 weeks to pay back 30 million ( this part im not too sure about, but it doesn't really matter) When Jin Dal Rae (the lead actress on My Girl) was overheard having 30 million, Kwon decides to have her as his next target. But he has a really hard time getting her to fall in love with him. Dal Rae is a widow with a daughter. Her husband died before her child was born. This drama is funny and sad. Its a bit draggy though.
