Omg, I had such HIGH hopes for "Parallel World." The show could've been truly special if not for its structural and censorship issues. Although I can't blame Meng Ziyi's character on censorship. Her role turned out to be such a disappointment :( I haven't read the original work so I don't know how much the show differs from the novel, but the writer impressed me with her creativity and secondary world. It's just such a shame certain key elements were mishandled.

To my surprise, I'm kind of struggling with "The Worst of Evil." So far Eui-jeong's honey trap seems to be sabotaging Jun-mo's operation more than anything else. I really hope that changes soon. Jun-Mo's latest development was a predictable but crucial/necessary one, and it'll be interesting to see how that affects him. Like you said, I don't think anyone is going to walk away in one piece. Jung-bae was a surprise dark horse for me, and I'm hoping he returns with a vengeance.
