This show works brilliantly as a 6 episode mini series with very strong performances from all involved. Including minor characters live Ji-Yoon’s child and father.It might have been able to swing a second season of 6 to 10 episodes, but I think they would have ended up rehashing covered ground by the end.
More American shows need to follow this example and leave the audience wanting a little more.
