Kang Chil Woo is a lowly officer during the Joseon era. Chil Woo is not a very smart and one of his life long goals is to become a midlevel officer. However when night falls, he is no longer that low level officer but instead a top assassin in an assassination organization. He gives out punishment to criminals and gives justice where needed. So Yoon and Chil Woo have a tragic love story. Yeon Doo is the daughter of a fallen yangban who owns a textile shop. She falls in love with Chil Woo after he rescues her from thugs who were harassing her.
This was an alright drama. Not the best, not the worst. This was definitely no where near the quality of Iljimae.
I really don't know what the heck the makers of this show were thinking putting this out after Iljimae. This had pretty much the same concept as Iljimae but was waaaaaaay different in many ways. So in a way, I was dissappointed.
For a drama like this, I thought the skills and production would have been better. The acting sucked big time with the exception of Yoo Ah In. His character was nice. He did an outstanding performance but it wasn't able to hold the show up. Goo Hye Sun's performance, I thought, was the worst out of them all. I think I rolled my eyes everytime she spoke. Totally overacted and she just wasn't right for the part. Eric's character as Chil Woo was okay but I really don't think they knew if they wanted him to be serious or boring. Well, he came across, most of the time as boring. Or maybe his costar, GHS, just made him seem that way.
The story wasn't half bad, which made it easier to watch. I will say the first 10 episodes were stupid and made not a whole lot of sense. Eventually, thankfully, the story did pick up and I was able to finally enjoy it for the most part.
