This drama is about survival, greed, jealousy… I really enjoyed it! It’s a different kind of story. Each episode has its own chore and atmosphere but the series is coherent, well balanced between emotion and action. Each character is well developed and has a life of their own. Episode 9’s structure is interesting. I always liked those puzzle stories, Memento style… 🙂 This is a really good drama full of humanity but just too short!
