    I read as far as “serial killer” and immediately thought ‘hell, no!’ 😁

      Haha, yeah, that’s always a hard pass for you πŸ˜‚ It won’t deter me though as long as the trailers look interesting enough, hehe

        Yup, that they are. πŸ˜€ Serial killers are a dime in a dozen in dramaland these days and don’t seem to bring anything new or exciting to these stories anymore. Just one more addition to the “same old same old”. In a way it’s kinda sad how ‘serial killers’ have become just another tired trope to try and spice up mainly unoriginal plots.

          Yeah, serial killers are in about every other crime drama as well as popping up in many genres that just mix in a dash of crime. I too wouldn’t mind seeing some more originality in the crime thriller genre, but luckily, I do enjoy serial killer story lines as long as the main character stories are compelling. The serial killer just kind of aids in their journey of growth, much like many other tropes (I know you don’t like many of those either though, hehe πŸ˜‰ ). It does sound like there are some more unique sounding plots coming up in the next year though, so maybe we’ll find some fresh ideas in the thriller genre for a change πŸ™‚

      Yeah, I’m one who doesn’t mind the serial killer trope either, hehe. They are in just about every other crime drama though, so many people get tried of it, which I do understand. I’m a big fan of Yeo Jin Goo, so if the trailers look good, I’ll definitely give this one a look πŸ™‚
