Tell Me What You Saw


Assalamualaikum, and good errr early morning dearest ! How are you all doing ? I am doing finer these days or at least that what I convince myself. I just finished watching this drama and immediately write the review because I am too excited for this drama. So, here we go !



Title : Tell Me What You Saw / Say What You Saw
Episodes : 16
Genre : Crime, Thriller
Network : OCN
Director : Lee Joon Hyung
Writer : Go Young Jae, Han Gi Hyun
Cast : Joon Hyuk, Soo Young, Jin Seo Yeon, Jang Hyun Sung, Ryu Seung Soo
Plot :

Oh Hyun Jae was a criminal profiler who disappeared five years ago after losing his fiancee in an explosion. That explosion happened because of a serial killer with the nickname, 'Peppermint Candy' to the public and 'That Guy' in the police community that was pursued by Hyun Jae and his team. Cha Soo Young is an officer in a rural area. She possessed an ability to remember the things she saw the way it was. To uncover the truth of the death of his fiancee, Oh Hyun Jae recruit Soo Young in his team.

SPOILER ALERT

This is another drama that put me on edge all the time. From the moment of the opening scene, it already had my attention on and I managed to finish this drama with only three to four days (seems like a long time ? well, it is too quick for me ). The first few episodes definitely catch my attention because Jang Hyuk doesn't even stand up on his scenes but still got me focused on him. He did a great job playing with his tone and his expression. Even when he had recovered, he had not much action scenes like in other dramas he starred in. It was one of the new side of him that managed to amaze me.

Every actors played their part really well, especially Jin Seo Yeon. At first, she portray a strong-will, charismatic and collected type of leader but when she faced her traumatic past, she crumble and became a woman that every woman is (I am not saying that we, women are weak but at some point in our life, we are, in fact, everyone had their weak point that they wanted to hide)

The plot was filled with twists and turns and if you did not pay enough attention, you may get lost. One moment they found the guy and next he wasn't. There was too much things to uncover and too much sides wanted to catch 'That Guy' for different reasons. One moment they teamed up and another they betrayed. It can get a little confusing but I managed to catch up. The real killer was definitely unexpected even though I kind of jokingly point him out at some point. 

They say, human are directed by their instincts. But I beg to differ. Someone with good heart can sink into wickedness, while someone with wicked heart can overcome their own wickedness. I'll tell you what I saw. I saw the will. The will to fight against sinking into wickedness. Whether someone is a good person or not, it depends on what one chooses to be. - Cha Soo Young

Almost all of the cases they investigate were cruel and brutal. It was a challenge for me to keep watching. However, towards the end of the drama, all of the members in the team were investigating their own case and I think it was a mess right there. However, any other scenes were beautifully directed. I loved how there was not much unnecessary script of the characters panicking. It shows professionalism of the police member to stay calm in a negative situation.

A WARNING from me, this drama  is not suitable to watch with children as there were lots of disturbing scenes that should be keep away from them. Oh, maybe those with a weak heart and old people doesn't fit to watch this drama. The disturbing scenes could get really extreme and brutal.
