The mystery of this drama is so omnipresent like everyone is suspect and there are a lot of characters to focus on. I am certainly enjoying.


When I think I have the plot figured out, there are sooo many twists! The teacher/ assemblywoman’s family is EVIL but the teacher is so fine I can’t lie lolll. Everyone is suspicious, but yeah this show is one of the best things I’m watching.
