It’s over, and the feels are still here.. That’s what my ranks are based on!
Well , this drama was the most I was waiting for this year – except of Criminal Minds of course ( because of LJG), and I can say I liked it from the first episode.. The acting was a little raw then, but the cinematography, the mood and the music made it for me! I wasn’t really familiar with the actors before ( except Jong Hyun from ML), and I want to say three of them really impressed me!
Im Siwan – it was really my first time seeing him, and he was great, from the first moment till the last! I wasn’t always agree with Won’s character, but he gained my love and respect in the end!
Yoona – I’ve seen her in couple of episodes of Love Rain, and I’ve heard some bad rewies about her, but I loved her and her character so much in this drama! There’s always something annoying for me in the female lead in all dramas, but I haven’t felt it here! She was always adorable, cheerful and brave through all the story! And she could convince me when she started to love the one she loved..
