Audience Reviews

1. ” It good. Watch. Captivation. Intelligencze. Thrillerz. Muzique–Ayo-the music too goodd, i”ll be damned. I think its going to explore lot of philosophical queries, and situations about accepting the helpless feeling when we face the inevitable saddenings of the world—psychology of the humans and crime…all of them intertwined, put in some romance burgers too, and you gett “Trolley” to carry all these ideas into a series. It hooked me with just the opening song, cause its tasteful, artistic, mysterious, and with an intelligent touch in it. And damn, the music was the primary reason I perked up to watch it engrossedly. So, do give it a try, Studio S has been producing consistently good series, so I believe this will also be good.”

2. “Kim Hyun Joo’s acting was #MAGNIFICENT, I hope she win a Baeksang for this. At first you would really find her character gullible because that’s how the character is and she made people believe who’s watching the show that she is that kind of person. It’s the same when you’re mad at villains. She acted it very well, I love how her character progress through out the show. I love how this show was written which is based on “Trolley Problem” . It would really made you feel the dilemma of decision making. I love the ending since it was emotionally and morally satisfying. This is now one of my favorite show.”
