Kang Oh Su, a young crime detective is also the 2nd son of a rich lawyer who disapproves his career choice. Several murders occur, with tarot cards left as hint. One day, he receives a mysterious package at the police station, with a Judgement tarot card and a letter in it. He soon discovers the person who made all those tarot cards is no one else that Seo Hae In, the witness of an homicide case he was involved in 12 years earlier as he was a troublesome kid…
This drama is sooooo good. The actors are good, the story is solid. It’s very well filmed… The music chosen gives a peculiar atmosphere. It is quite dark without being an horror drama. There is lot of mystery, with a touch of psychic powers and romance. I personally loved it but I would totally understand why people wouldn’t like it. It is not a “standard” drama as per say, which I like.
