HOW IS THIS JUSTICE? Judy and Linda demand justice from episodes 2-4 of "The Uncanny Counter" (경이로운 소문), a supernatural action comedy from OCN, starring Jo ByungGyu, Kim SeJeong, Yoon JoonSang and Yeom HyeRan.
All the rules pertaining to the Counters and their work are annoyingly loosey goosey, so it's difficult to get invested when anyone breaks or adheres to them. Linda posits that there are not enough Counters to cover all of South Korea and wonders how they would cover larger countries, like Canada. Judy wonders why there aren't many K-dramas that cast cops in a positive light, compared to American shows.
