Review:
This is a simple and short mystery murder drama that makes you think of who-did-it. I love the idea of trying to solve the case by analyzing the items bought in the supermarket!

Adding Lee Kwang Soo as the lead helps make the show fun and light. But they are always leaving the supermarket unattended, no wonder sales are going down LOL. I had a feeling the murderer was not anyone from the supermarket team so I liked how they revealed each one’s secret/story per episode. You really do not know what a person is going through day to day.

This drama is also not just fun and games because what happened to Yul is heartbreaking and traumatic for a little girl!

Sometimes the actions of the characters are dumb. I particularly do not like Detective Choi and the older police officer. And 5 dollar guy was annoying.

The last episode felt like they dragged the story to be able to have 1 hour episode. The killer was able to get away because the leads focused on room 408 when it was more urgent to arrest the killer. The drama also didn’t really explain why the killer killed the 2 other victims.

Rating: 8/10
