I have to say that though there were quite a few holes in this drama on the whole I’m glad that I watched it. Would I recommend it? Hmm… maybe, and only if you’re like me and really love Lee Minki, but don’t get me wrong, there were some real positives.
I can’t say enough about the excellence of the main group of actors..especially Lee Minki and Seo Hyun-Jin. They had amazing chemistry, but were also really comfortable with each other too. From the BTS videos on YouTube I saw that they seemed to have lots of fun as they shot the scenes and that’s definitely reflected on screen. Though his robotic performance felt very familiar… his face was able to convey a sentiment or reaction very well in a subtle way (and let’s face it I was studying him VERY closely, LOL!).
She really is a very skilled actress, a powerhouse full of energy. I’m thinking that Yolette would have especially loved her because she took nothing from anyone. She gave as good as she got and she enjoyed her bad girl image. She wasn’t perfect and she made me really mad at the end but I won’t soon forget this character.
But, this wasn’t only about the main couple. I also really enjoyed the scenes where the secondary characters interacted because they were able to really feel like individuals who were just spending some time together (and not always peacefully). They even had an adorable miniature dog who was passed around like a little treasure. LOL What more can I ask for?
As expected there were many questions for which we got no answers. I felt that the writing really failed especially in the last couple of episodes. The final episodes felt rushed in one sense and very slow in another. I think that this drama could easily have been much shorter. It didn’t need 16 episodes for this plotline at all, though it was nice to see the guest cameos.
