My review

Wow, this drama has everything :horror, mystery, murder, psychological,romance, drama and the list goes on. I generally try to avoid horror genre, but this one is not mainly dependant on the ghosts but rather focused on mind reading techniques. Our main cast(Jiang Ship and Yi Heng) enters people mind and try to figure out the hidden clues to the mysteries. Each person mind is fragile and they try to infer their manifestation of their thoughts inside their subconscious mind.
