Review No. 14: White Christmas

Description: The most prestigious school in Korea is located on a remote mountain side, only the most brilliant students attend this school. One year, during the winter break, 6 students decide to remain at the school for their own reasons. The main character stayed back at the school because of an anonymous letter he received that sounded like a threat. Soon, the 6 students discover that they have all been sent this letter and they must unravel the mystery surrounding it if they hope to stay alive for the new school term.

What I think about it:
Plot: It draws you in from the very beginning. This one is a wonderfully mysterious thriller but at the same time not too scary for me. I enjoyed it for the most part. For an 8 episode drama, it was really well done.

Since this was a very short drama, I will not go into too much detail. I don't want to accidentally spoil anything for those of us who have not seen it yet.
 The characters were well developed and brought to life by the skills of these actors. I enjoyed getting to know each one of them.
 My favorite character was Yun Su.

The Ending: This took an unexpected turn. I'm not sure if I liked it or hated it. I definitely want a sequel of this though. I feel like the story is a bit unfinished.

In Conclusion: I give this drama a 3.5 / 5 stars. I liked it a lot and would recommend it. However, it's not something I'd put on my to re-watch list. Once was enough, I think.
