My Thoughts

What an interesting plot. A mysterious drug and a boxer. This isn’t the first time he played the role of someone who knows martial arts which initially made me feel not-so-happy, because I am afraid he’s falling into stereotypes.

He is also playing someone who is good with martial arts in “Wok of Love,” but I am excited to see him back so soon with another drama.
