The idealistic Choi In Ha has her work cut out for her when she becomes a broadcast journalist, especially when she suffers from a condition known as “Pinocchio syndrome,” which makes her break out into hiccups whenever she tells a lie. Her rookie colleagues include Choi Dal Po, whose shabby appearance masks his true eloquence and sharp memory; Seo Bum Jo, a wealthy heir who has had everything handed to him in life; and Yoon Yoo Rae, whose fangirl knowledge comes in handy in covering the news. The 20-something newbie reporters pursue justice as they try to discover themselves in the process.

My Thoughts-

I have watched this drama three years ago and never re watched it again so I don’t remember much now. I binge watched this drama and I was hooked. I don’t think there is anything that I disliked here. Lee Jong suk is a good actor and needs more dramas like this.

Favourite OSTs

I loved both the OSTs. Tiger JK is my favorite singer since then.

My ratings- 8/10

Story- 8/10

Cast/Acting- 8/10

Music- 10/10

Rewatch value- 5/10

  1. I loved this drama! Especially because of the critical and accurate way they depicted the media and how they shape stories. It isn’t often that you find a series (korean or otherwise) that will openly say that the media manipulate the information they receive to follow the story they have already planned before even receiving the accurate information.
