An unlikely group that runs a noodle shop are actually “Counters” who hunts down evil spirits.
This series made me excited from the onset. I am a fan of fantasy-mystery genre and the fact that it has this cute storyline of superheroes in guise of diverse ordinary noodle shop employees made me really look forward to it (to the point that I made an announcement of its premiere a week ahead
Every actor suited the roles perfectly well and I love their characters. I have become a fan of Sejeong and Joe Byung Gyu.
I don’t know what happened in the production but I am glad that there’s continuity in the story despite changes in screenwriters (episodes 1-12, ep 13 and ep 14-16 have different screenwriters)
Also props to Lee Hong Nae who played the role of Ji Cheong Sin (the evil spirit incarnate). He has this poker-faced stance when he was doing his mission yet you could feel his warmth when he was with the children in the orphanage. Oh and can I mention that he looks hot and handsome too?! I hope that he will be given more projects after this.
All in all, The Uncanny Counter is a very enjoyable series from episode 1 to the finale and I look forward to its season 2!
