Episodes 1-2

The fight scenes are interesting, although I wish Van didn't look or act like there was no way he could lose. I guess Van's Suit is immortal too, since it seems to get torn in every fight and still looks brand new. Do Korean car not have airbags? It would have made Mi-ho walking away from the car crash unscathed seem more realistic.
