At first look, it looks as if Adamas is using all of the methods from the crime-thriller textbook. Heavy rain? Check. Ominous music? Double verify. Lonely and deserted jail cells the place individuals are certain to get murdered? Bring it on. In the primary half of the premiere episode, the dialogues appear extreme and it looks like characters are given cue playing cards. Nevertheless after what looks as if heavy exposition, the story has your consideration, in components not less than. Adamas is the story of dual brothers, each performed by Ji Sung. One is a wry crime novelist identify Woo-shin, the opposite’s a wry prosecutor named Soo-hyun, and each haven’t fairly recovered from the brutal homicide of their stepfather by the hands of their organic father. We realise they’re nonetheless hurting when insistent reporter Kim So-hee, who believes their father was framed, heads straight into the topic with prosecutor Soo-hyun (Ji Sung), and he clearly tells her to get out of his workplace. However, the seeds of doubt have been sown in his thoughts as evident from the variety of instances he reads the outdated case experiences.
Clearly, for those who thought that there’s just one thriller at hand, you’re completely mistaken. Adamas is bold because it builds up a number of mysteries concurrently, nearly giving trigger for fear that the present may prove moderately chaotic, twisted and tangled later. It seems to be increase a number of intricate webs of deceit, energy video games and even a rabid infusion of politics, with the ethical questioning of capital punishment thrown in. The present nearly feels bloated with a number of plot factors, and one can solely hope that every storyline is dealt with in an interesting method, and extra importantly, add to the principle premise. It can be moderately distressing if all these threads lead nowhere.
While prosecutor Soo-hyun muses over Kim So-hee’s phrases, his brother Woo-shin (once more Ji Sung) is having one other journey of his personal—and he has some moderately unusual plans. On the face of it, he has a curious ghost-writing process to perform. He is writing the memoir of a moderately doubtful chairman named Kwon, who resides in a palatial mansion with a number of devoted employees members and his frigid daughter-in-law Eun Hye-soo (Seo Ji-hye). Seo Ji-Hye’s chilly, icy and cryptic behaviour is eerie and truly much more riveting than the rest within the present—now that’s a personality whose backstory we wish to know extra about.
She performs her playing cards near her coronary heart and warns Woo-shin straight off that he has walked into harmful territory and that he higher pack his luggage and depart. She doesn’t mince her phrases concerning the chairman, and nearly stops in need of calling him a assassin. Obviously, for the story to progress, he isn’t going to go anyplace and is extra curious concerning the chairman and his deeds, or on this case, misdeeds. Almost everybody within the sequence appears fishy—most likely to confuse the viewers. Of course, there are clear villains who’re crawling out of the woodwork by the top of the episode, however they may simply be pawns and even distractions. Added to this curious combine is Heo Sung Tae’s Choi Tae-Song, an undercover cop who has his causes for spying on the chairman. Woo-shin has filth on Tae-song, and decides to strike an settlement with him, and his actual motivation is revealed on the finish of the episode: He needs Adamas, a diamond-tipped sword. We simply don’t know why. We add this to the checklist of a number of issues that we don’t know.
The premiere episode of Adamas was partly partaking. While the present appears to be struggling to search out its move, the primary episode has arrange some promising mysteries and characters. Hopefully, by the subsequent episode the present is way extra concise and fewer chaotic.
