The Uncanny Counter Season 2 Episode 4 Review
Episode 4 brought in another round of So Mun saving the day which really needs to updates at this point. The Counter may be really strong, but hoping to see the story focus on the others is not a big request to make.
Meanwhile, Jeok-bong is proving himself to be here for more than just comic relief and I am very excited to know how the expenses are taken care of.
With that said, what did you think about the episode? Let us know in the comments below.
