A well done, high concept sci fi show about memories, responsibility, and identity. The story revolves around two twins who discover a mysterious woman in the woods when they are children. Is she an alien? The woman disappears from their life, only to reappear again when they are in their early twenties. At the same time a string of questionable suicides start occurring at the Health and Science College. Who is she? And how is she connected to these events and the lives of the twins? Rotating between 2017, our time, and 2037, when the country has been split into “Normal Earth,” a wasteland of pollution and dust, and “Smart Earth,” a clean environment where all the citizens are on modified mood controllers and live peacefully.
There are plenty of spectacular twists in this drama and the plot was so unconventional, I had no idea where it was taking me from episode to episode. The acting was incredible, especially from Yeo Jin-Goo… wow, that boy has an expressive face, does he not? Murder, mystery, secret experiments, missing persons and aliens! Who could ask for more? (Uh, I could! sequel, please?)
As with all mystery shows – I won’t do a lengthy review since mystery shows are best enjoyed with the full mystery unraveling as you watch. So… do yourself a favor and check it out.
Overall Rating – 9/10. Blue Worms Are Not Your Friends.
