Fucking outstanding. 

I randomly stumbled across this on netflix and decided to watch it because the plot seemed interesting enough, but I really didn’t expect to get this sucked into a show. Amazing characters, amazing story; It really is a masterclass in character development. I grew so attached to some of these characters that it genuinely kinda ruined my day when some of them died (Sae-byeok, I’m still not over her).

But I can’t talk about character development without mentioning episode 6, c’mon. So many emotionally devastating moments that it was even harder to watch than some of the gore in this series. The fact that it’s able to be just as gut-wrenching even without that much violence goes to show how this show is so much more than meaningless violence.

The show is very politically charged, a great allegory for class struggle and overall fucking amazing. Dark, gory and sad but will still leave you at the edge of your seat wanting more.
