Hidden Identity shows how a great crime drama can be entertaining, thrilling and heart felt all at the same time.

The story, at its' core is pretty basic; there's a big bad that the team is trying to catch, and most of the team members have personal issues with said big bad. What separates this show are the embellishments and details. There's a steady buildup to revealing the big bad, so that you're eager. There's red herrings and actual clues, so you can figure it out along with. And not once does the show pull punches; the stakes are as big as they're made out to be.

The acting is great, with good camaraderie and the villains are evil but with hints of humanity when needed.

The largest downside is the slight dragging of the show in the middle. Not enough to be boring, but in a show with so many other strengths, a glaring flaw.

A recommend for any crime fan.

Levei 4-5 meses pra finalizar. Apesar do ritmo acelerado, a história se torna cansativa depois dos primeiros episódios. Apenas no arco final, as coisas ficam interessantes. Pra mim, é 2.5/5.0 (quase 3, heim).

I dunno how many times I watched this kind of plot already - children of mistreated government agents getting revenge. Besides here the supposed victims are murderers and terrorists. But they killed chinese scientists so suffering of chinese children doesn't matter. I'm sick of korean racism already.

The show itself is slick and cool-locking and female operative kicks ass of tough guys not the token dark chick.

I really don't know why everyone says it was perfect, when I was so bored watching this drama..
Around the 8th episode I stopped watching for a while and then couldn't bring myself to keep watching so I just put it on hold.
These days, I'm watching dramas that come out now, so I have to watch 2 episodes a week and then do nothing, so I just thought it would be a good idea to watch the rest of this drama. Yes, I kept watching, but it was only because I had nothing else to do...
I have to admit that the story was good and overall realistic, with not so many kdrama cliches.
Min Tae In dying (and not coming back to life), the bad guys killing people, that there was no incredible love story, etc.

But there were things that irritated me, like Choe Tae Pyeong's character (shallow and always stating the obvious) and the mistakes that were made (shoot-him-already!!! kind of circumstances).
The last 2 episodes were especially hard to watch. I don't know why I was not in the mood, but I kept watching because I wanted to finish this... During the last episode to be honest I was playing a game on my phone and just glanced a bit to understand what was going on...
I don't know if it's just me, but before this drama started I thought that this would be an awesome drama and got all excited, because I love crime dramas and I like Kim Bum, but I'm quite disappointed right now, because it was not bad, but it was also not fun to watch.....
It was good, but not appealing....
Good: 3/5

well I did really enjoy it too much
I liked how the characters are and the acting was really good
everyone of them had his own way and personality

I thought I will rate it the least as very good, but at the end it was really perfect

I didn't cry at all in the last episode when Choe Tae Pyeong thought Cha Geon U is dead at the bus incident
because from my experience in korean drama they always do the same things! when they let you believe that a person is dead he show up at the end healthy

it was interesting drama, worth watching

I am in love with this drama so far. Kim Bum is doing a great job (never thought i will think this way after watching BOF lol). What's more - quite a bit of dramas have tendency to go all out with first episode (or first couple of episodes) and then they die. Not the case with this one. Feels like I am watching a full-length movie and not a drama. And wow, not much humour. I think the first gag you see is in episode 6 or so. Don't get me wrong, I freaking love it this way. An amazing example of a drama that is strong enough to be interesting without any jokes involved. Hopefully, it won't disappoint me.

P.S. I am a sucker when it comes to crime dramas bbuing bbuing

this drama is superior in term of directing and cinematography. Sometimes I get confused if I were watching a tv drama or a movie .Keep the thrilling crime dramas coming, TvN!
