The series explores the gray area between legal and illegal. Sa Do-chan is a genius who happens to be a doppelganger of prosecutor Baek Joon-soo. Due to certain events, he is asked to pretend to be Prosecutor Baek. Will he be able to outsmart everyone?

Main Cast: Jang Keun-Suk, Han Ye-RiJung Woong-In

What makes this drama different from other con artist theme? Well, it’s the domination of switching between a con artist genius and a righteous prosecutor.  Performances of the switching were quite interesting though I found myself a little bit tiring in the middle of the episodes and wondered if I could stop watching the show.

I found the story nothing extraordinary, but the same political dirty strategy. For 16 hours, they were just keep chasing the same villain who seems very perfect above the law, which is really unrealistic for me. In fairness, characterization-wise and execution are decent enough to be watched and some humor to be enjoyed.

I am not saying you don’t have to watch this, but just don’t hope too much for some exciting story aspects.

Verdict: 7/10
