I love the counters team and how they end up becoming their own family. Each one has their own skills and powers, although why So Moon is the strongest was never explained fully except saying he is the door to the world and Yung. My favorite counter is Ga Mo Tak then the old lady is the second. I liked So Mun at the start, but he keeps crying like a baby in the latter episodes it was annoying. Hana is a bit boring and she needs to change her hairstyle.
I like overarching story about So Gwon, Kim Yeong Nim, and the people who were helping them bring down Shin Myung Hui. Huhu I didn’t expect Detective Yeong Jeong to die!!! However, this could have been 12 episodes, but they stretched the story to make it 16. Scenes were starting to get repetitive in the latter half. I mean, the thugs are trying to kill them, they escape. They try to fight Cheong Sin and the Mayor but they keep failing. Repeat for the next 4 eps until So Moon gets stronger and stronger to finally beat them. I like the main villain and the mayor, but not Ji Cheongsin and the girl. I didn’t really care what happens to them and i just fast forwarded some of their scenes.
3. The people in white arent too helpful. The counters are risking their lives yet they get angry if they try to use the powers for revenge and are too judgey. Why dont they go down and fight the evil spirits then?
I also wanted to try eonni’s noodles!
Looking forward to season 2 coming soon!!
