Sigh….so disappointed so far… I can totally see why the ratings were so low.
I’m up to episode 7 right now and the one and only highlight is the eye candy that our King provides..he’s never looked better in my eyes..but that’s not enough to last through 16 episodes!! I like the main actress but they have no wow factor during their scenes at all..I think it’s suffering from very bad writing..the love story just has no real substance and definitely no progression..the plotline is convoluted and hard to follow (at least for me)..and to tell you the truth I don’t care about following it at all. It’s not the first time that I gave up on trying to understand the twists and turns but I was always compensated by the rest of the positives but I can’t say the same for this one. There are quite likeable secondary characters (like Woo Do hwan in a duo role for instance) but I keep nodding off while watching this…not a good sign..I hope that it improves..fingers crossed!!
I’m not sure why a drama that made my eyes well up so much resonated so deeply with me, but this one sure did. I’ve seen it billed as a melodrama (which I normally avoid), and I can see that, but to me this story lived on a different level. So let’s take a look under the covers… Spoilers after the jump.
With only the final episode to go, this should be the time when lovers are rewarded and villains or problems vanquished, but is that where we really are? Can we not just enjoy a satisfying dinner of happy pretty?
Spoilers after the jump, and I’m not going to even apologize for the pic spam.
Okay, we’ve still got 3 more long episodes to go and we have to use up our current stock of tissues already? More questions and more answers, but seriously, I’m almost wishing I remained in the dark. Spoilers after the jump.
