Mr.Korn agrees as he is impressed by his guts to tell what he wants.
I have been waiting for this drama for a year when a small clip of Porsche fighting was uploaded by the director. The hype was something else because the kind of plot or the actors have never been seen until now in any BL drama. Even tho we all knew the plot by reading the novel it still excites me. The wait was over when it was announced to release early. Now let’s talk about the episode, the first episode gave us a brief description of them from how Kinn took the charge of being the leader of the Mafia gang to why Porsche is so desperate of having money all the time. What was more surprising why that they actually showed Kinn violent and let the lead actor kill and be not soft. We do need some kill in Mafia plots or else it will be boring if we just saw the main couple all the time.
The actors really suit each other, still, we didn’t see any chemistry maybe it’s because it’s too soon to judge the leads yet but I’m excited to wait for them to grow in love with each other.
