Maou

Published on December 10th, 2008.

This drama is a remake of a popular Korean suspense drama called The Devil, which was aired last year on Korean TV. Ohno Satoshi plays the role of a two-faced lawyer called Naruse Ryo, one of which is very kind and the other who’s plotting a revenge on the person who killed his brother when they were young. Ikuta Toma plays the role as Serizawa Naoto, the one who caused the death and is now working as a detective to make up for his sins.

This drama is very exciting to watch, but it’s not mind-blowing. However, there’s a possible favorite-to-be girl in this drama, Kobayashi Ryoko, she’s new to me but I’m looking forward to see more of her in the future (she’s amazingly cute!).

    I actually liked the show! I, of course, stopped watching it a few episodes in.

    Bloody Monday is better but Ohno was so creepy! I have a mild crush on him after Maou though.. but its also followed by a cringe. Lol.

    A hannibal cringe. Creepy..

    I had no idea who Satoshi Ohno or Arashi were until I saw Maoh, and came away from it totally in love with the guy! ^^ It wasn’t enough to hook me into Arashi’s music, but man…I wish the DVD set wasn’t so expensive! English subbed episodes are really hard to come by!!
