POV DISCUSSION: You’re All Surrounded Episode 1 – 2 (Review)


Okay – I’m on board this one🙂 The first two episodes was a mix of comedy and suspense, and I liked what I see.

I wasn’t that excited about this because I’m not really a fan of Go Ara, but I’m giving her a chance since she grew on me a little since Reply 1994. It helps a lot that Cha Seung Won, Lee Seung Gi & Ahn Jae Hyun are all in it – plenty of eye candy for me🙂

And the storyline is interesting, and so are the characters – and I’m just basically SOLD. I think the drama would be fun throughout, and might get a little heavier as episodes progresses because we’re dealing with detectives and murders which happened in the past, but I’m all in🙂


vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h00m59s95We start off being introduced to Seo Pan Suk, a detective who is trying to bring a case to trial and convict a suspect by the help of a witness. vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h01m32s168vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h01m35s194The witness is Kim Ji Yong’s mother, who gets threatened if she does take the witness stand.

vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h02m18s112vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h02m22s153But she still takes it, and dies – and Ji Yong witnessed the whole murder.

vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h02m29s227vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h02m32s1Ji Yong blames Seo Pan Suk for not keeping his promise to protect them.

However, the murderer arrives at the school instead.

And that’s how Ji Yong became…vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h08m59s32Eun Dae Goo.

vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h09m15s185And he has a special relationship with Uh Soo Sun as well.vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h01m24s82vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h01m18s30vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h02m01s202They knew each other when they were teenagers after a fight. vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h04m31s164vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h04m33s182And she saw the murderer at the school when Ji Yong/Dae Goo was being chased.

vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h05m29s237Anyway, now in the present is four rookies who were sent to Seo Pan Suk who totally drives him nuts, and he is constantly scolding and asking them to resign.

vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h06m31s90vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h05m56s244Dae Goo is doing his own investigation secretly, and plants a camera in Seo Pan Suk’s house, and even makes a duplicate phone.

vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h08m16s108vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h07m52s124They were all sent to go undercover, and at the club when there was a stabbed victim, Dae Goo frozes and is reminded of his Mom.

vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h08m46s152vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h09m09s125And they all got a scolding, but Seo Pan Suk realizes they really tried their best.

vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h09m26s48vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h09m23s17vlcsnap-2014-05-11-11h09m53s54And his phone starts to vibrate, and so does the phone in Dae Goo’s pocket. Both stops and vibrates again. Dae Goo is nervous and Seo Pan Suk turns to look at Dae Goo.


I don’t think Seo Pan Suk is a traitor – but maybe there was a traitor around him back then, that’s why the murderer got back his pendant and managed to find Ji Yong at the school.

But we know that Dae Goo holds a deep grudge for Seo Pan Suk – and it will be interesting to see how it all unfolds in the future.

As of now, I like how everything is being set-up, and the characters are interesting. Four different rookies together growing to be proper detectives? YES, I’M SOLD. I think it will be nice seeing how the same young rookie detectives who has completely no experience, slowly turn into people who can really be called detectives and protect the citizens.

And yes. EYE CANDY.

And of course Cha Seung Won & Lee Seung Gi battling it out? That’s perfect~
