Featured reviews for

Journey Under a Midnight Sun
J-fan source:
«Since people would have watched it anyway given the cast, you would think that TBS could make this drama as bad as they want; but what they did is pick a thrilling and passionate best-selling novel and give it a sure-sell cast. I know it's a matter of opinion of course, but this is the BEST drama of the season. Period. There's nothing that can compete with this. This is the one to see this season, and everyone knows it.»
