Based on the American television series of the same title, this Korean drama remake will satisfy anyone who loves a good, exciting police procedural and crime thrillers featuring a group of elite agents from the National Criminal Investigation (NCI) to solve crime cases through their expertise of criminal profiling, criminal psychology, white hacking and the like. The cases they solve range from domestic and violence to complex psychological ones.

As the agents work through their expertise in solving each case, a few also portray a personal and vulnerable side of them as some cases involve their friends and family members, or even having been gone through some horrific situations themselves which still left an impact on them before joining NCI.

Although each agent is brilliant in his/her own role, I've to say Team Captain Kang Ki-Hyung (starring Son Hyun-Joo) left a deep impression on me not only of his brilliant acting but also of his role as the lead profiler who guide his team through his sharp insight on how a criminal's mind works as well as offering support as and when needed. Other supporting roles such as profilers Kim Hyun-Joon (starring Lee Joon-Gi), Ha Sun-Woo (starring Moon Chae-Won), Dr Lee Han (starring Go Yoon); and white hacker Nana Hwang (starring Yoo-Sun) as well as the media specialist Yoo Min-Young (starring Lee Sun-Bin) complement the group and no one is a minor role in my opinion as each plays an important part in solving a case.

After watching this I've a deeper understanding of how a profiler works and I truly have great respect and admiration for them given the challenging tasks they have to face everything they solve a case.

    I have a friend who watches the Kdramas all the time. Didn't know they made these kinds of shows too. I might be more willing to try this than some of the dramas.

    I used to watch Criminal Minds but after several seasons I lost interest. I think it just felt like they were trying too hard to find weird cases!

    Jenny - I love Kdramas. They're kind of addictive and though some are overboard with the melodrama, I still enjoy watching them. :)

    Iliana - I'm not familiar with the American version so I can't comment. However, this one kept me engaged and plus, each case offers some insight in a way.

    I want to watch this one! I watched some episodes of the American version, but it was really violent. I'd like to see the way the Korean version approaches the idea of criminal psychology and profilers!
