“While nothing about “Missing Noir M” is immediately impressive, all-around the production is a fairly strong one. It has something that’s been lacking in a lot of detective procedurals lately- a well-crafted mystery that’s actually solvable by the viewer in advance. Although you’ll have to know a lot about numbers”.
” I watched Bad Guys for the grit and madness and blood. I watched Missing Noir M for the smarts. This show was honestly brilliant….”.
“I don’t know about this one. It has amazing (yes I said amazing) sub-plot stories, but the main story is so bad. So is the ending“.
” Each episode is like a puzzle and I enjoy trying to fit the edges together myself. Not all is what it appears to be”.
” Despite coming in fairly blind prior to the show’s premiere, Missing Noir M certainly exceeded my expectations with a missing persons crime solving unit spearheaded by a genius ex-FBI agent and his highly intelligent team members”.
“It has all the OCN’s trademarks that I’ve come to love so well. M has Ten‘s slick, dark grittiness, God’s Gift‘s super-intelligent crime solver, Bad Guys’ (possible) team bonding and bromance… (…)”.
“Since there will be viewers who are faster at reaching the right conclusions than the characters, either the mystery needs to be very complex, or said characters need to lack all the information the viewer has or be “everyman” types. By giving into the Korean drama obsession with highly schooled , child prodigy geniuses, the series ends up having a lead who at times seems too slow for being one”.
” The episode showed a fast pace development and the continuity of the story is well written. I love the execution and the visuals of every scene. Or am I praising the drama too much just because Kim Kang Woo is playing the role that very much suits him, suave, good looking and intelligent detective.”
“Among my favorite episodes, I really loved the case entitled, “Pure Heart,” for all the twist and turns in it. There’s also a nice flow in progression with the 2 episodes from this case and the final episode of the series as the theme of trust is brought up again and again”.
“This drama was a detailed explanation on what Gil Soo Hyun, the main character, said: “That’s why life is beautiful since it doesn’t always go according to your calculations.””.
