Best drama I've ever watched!
5 September 2019 | by minahosgorenSee all my reviews

I don't know where to begin, but let me just say this; it is a drama that you'll never forget. You will want to watch it over and over again and you will feel the same way as if you are watching it for the first time everytime you do. But I must also warn you that it will be an emotional roller coaster.

Character development, casting, cinematography, soundtracks, costumes, all is impeccable. The only thing I can criticize is that the last episodes are a bit rushed due to low ratings in korea (hard to understand) yet beautiful nonetheless. Unlike most people I found the ending satisfying, it was intense but a series like this wouldn't end any other way in my opinion. And like everyone else, I'm rooting for season 2 too.
