More suspense, mysteries and uncertainties. As the drama plot unfolds, we often find ourselves in a state of confusion thinking what kind of twist or surprise will take place in the next episode.

Ended its 16-episode stint last Saturday (14 July), K-drama “Sketch” was always on our radar because of its interesting storyline that revolves around an ace detective Kang Dong-soo (Rain) with excellent intuition, a former elite special force member Kim Do-jin (Lee Dong-gun) who tries to plot a revenge for the death of his wife, and a female detective Yoo Shi-hyun (Lee Sun-bin) who has the ability to foresee 3 days into the future and sketch out its drawings. Despite their temperament differences, Kang Dong-soo and Yoo Shi-hyun worked together to correct what’s wrong in the society.

It all began with mysteries in the air, as Kim Do-jin’s pregnant wife was killed by a serial murderer, followed by the murder of Kang Dong-soo’s fiance — all of which were somehow foresee by Yoo Shi-hyun in her sketches. More questions arose out of the drama scenes with new characters, but little answers or no clue were given for the next few episodes, leaving us feeling lost and puzzled halfway through the storyline.
