I was looking at this a few days ago on mysoju....I'm undecided...I don't think it's my type of show. Then again I might end up loving it.

I loved it! I watched only for Tamayama Tetsuji but the show became addicting fast. And since it's such a short drama......the show came to its point fast and the show was nonstop.......

Totally worth it!
