I have always found it hard to finish dramas, but this one was super easy for me! I was checking every week for new episodes 😉 It kept me interested throughout the whole series and I can safely say this is my favourite drama 😉 Okay, on to the review!
Story – 10/10 I loved the storyline, it was a mix of everything. Sweet, Romantic, Tragedy, Comedy, etc. The only thing that I thought sucked was that a lot of the characters led a really sad life ;( And I won’t spoil, but they did take out a love storyline that I would’ve been very interested in watching!
Acting/Cast – 10/10 One word: AMAZING.Everyone played their role perfectly. I had decided to watch this drama mainly because of my love for Kim Soo Hyun (since WISFC days, he was genius there), Jung Il Woo, Yeo Jin Goo & Kim Yoo Jung (I LOVED THEM IN ILJIMAE!) and pretty Han Ga In. However, I fell in love with all the other actors too! Lee Won Geun and Song Jae Rim…I found myself wanting them to come on screen every second! They’re both such hotties lol~ now I’m a huge fan of the both of them! I also loved Siwan, he did a great job and he was so adorable! I think he even looks better in sageuks than in reality. LOL. Hands down, best cast, I wouldn’t change a thing 🙂 *I also loved the eunuch!* lol~
