The series was just added to Netflix, and these first episodes were so visually striking, I wanted to get a post up and plug it now rather than waiting until all 16 episodes are up. The stop-motion animation opening sequence was so beautiful & creepy.

I really enjoyed these first two episodes so thank you for the heads up.

The one scene that really kicked me in the gut was the little girl crying that she wanted to live with her father even after all that he said and did. I've been in that place.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the love story will go with a heroine with antisocial personality disorder. There was a thriller/romance novel called "Jane Doe" by Victoria Helen Stone where the heroine was a sociopath that was terrific (and now I see there was a sequel, I'll have to get on that) that I was reminded of when watching this show. While the Cosmo interview says the show is about an “unusual romance between two people who end up healing each other’s emotional and psychological wounds.” I don't think the show is going to do something stupid like having love cure Mun-Yeong out of her ASD entirely. But clearly there's going to be something transformative happening for both the hero and heroine from their interaction, so it will be interesting to see what happens. Not to mention finding out the answer to the mystery of what happened to the brothers' mom and who/what the butterfly is.
