Misty tells the story of a famous anchorwoman (played by Kim Nam-joo) who becomes a major suspect in a murder case. Her husband (Ji Jin-hee) comes to her rescue as her lawyer although their marriage is on the rocks. The series will air its finale on March 24, 2017, and will be followed by Something In The Rain (also known as Pretty Sister Who Buys Me Food).


Me? Just an ordinary lad with an extraordinary (says this something called 'stereotype') habit of watching Korean dramas. It started with action-filled City Hunter and the rest, as they say, is history.
  • I’m so happy that it’s getting popular here in South Korea. This is my second favorite drama right now. Mother just ended and it is my most favorite drama of 2018.
