KDrama - Vampire Prosecutor

Most people, when they see the title, they'd probably dismiss this because they'd would think it's a Twilight meets CSI crossover. They would be very wrong, because it's neither.
Recently I started watching Korean drama series of all kinds and I must admit that they're better than Japanese ones. In some cases they're even better than most American shows as well.
Vampire Prosecutor luckily has a second season so after I write this short review, I'll be continuing watching that. Interesting thing is that second season is even higher rated than first, so I'm very curious to see how they improved such an excellent series.
This Korean drama is, in short, a prosecutor's search of his (vampire) maker who along the way solves various crimes which are more or less vampire related. The series is really well made, with no apparent flaws and a really good acting crew. It will keep you on the edge of your chair for the bigger part of every episode. There is just no way you'll be bored by this one. After every episode you'll be wanting more. 
You can imagine my disappointment when I reached episode 12 just to realize it was the final one. Lucky for me there is a season 2. This series is a must watch. You will not regret it in any way. So go ahead and enjoy!

Prosecutor Min Tae-Yeon (Yeon Jeong-Hun) is bitten by somebody he doesn't and becomes a vampire. Tae-Yeon rejects the life of a vampire and he survives by drinking the blood of dead people and still lives as a righteous prosecutor .
Tae-Yeon also uses his new found abilities as a vampire to prosecute powerful persons normally thought above the law. A mysterious case then occurs and the evidence points to a vampire as the perpetrator. Tae-Yeon now knows that he is not the only vampire. He also ponders why he became a vampire and what truths may lie behind their motives.
