If there was ever a drama out there that emphasizes on the phrase: "Nice guys (Or in this case 'girls') finish last", this drama would be it. A very heart-breaking and suspenseful series all leading up to an ultimately morbid ending.

Sophie was the most innocent of all the characters in this series. It's a shame that such a beautiful plot with her and her love interest had to come to such an abrupt end. In my opinion, it was a very unfortunately waste of character development.
