I’ve finished up Heartless City and let’s share our thoughts on the ending.
Overall, I really liked Heartless City for it’s dark theme. It created a whole new benchmark for bad-ass dramas and I’m never looking at a crime drama the same again until they reach the same standard.
Honestly, I preferred the first half of the drama where there was a lot of surprises and twists & turns. The later episodes felt like they were trying to squeeze Soo Min into the storyline.
The only problem I had with Heartless City was that I wished they had marketed the drama differently. Instead of saying it is a drama about a girl who becomes undercover to kill the man that killed her sister and fell in love with him, they should have made Doctor’s Son the main plot. Honestly, the star and main of the drama is Shi Hyun himself, and I actually like that fact.
