Watch this drama because of Lee Seung Gi, and I don’t wanna be a hypocrite by add other initiate reason. Up until Lee Seung Gi was casted, I don’t care for any word for this drama, no matter that the heroine is Ha Ji Won, or the writer and director is the key factor behind Beethoven Virus, Lee Seung Gi is my turning point, yes, I am that shallow.
Now, I am at the point of addicted, obsessed, or add any other words that describe somebody who always longing for this drama. Dare to say, It’s not Lee Seung Gi effect in me (as usual), it’s because the drama itself, in simple word, is AWESOME. Terrific. Superb. anything other that make me speechless.
Enough about me (and my obsession), we’ll talk about the drama now.
-The Grand Picture-
Concluding by my self, each week of this drama has its own topic, the emotional connection for each pair of an episode is needed. The drama starts at a fast pace, a brief introduction (hiding some future hint), less conflict and much comedy (OH! How I miss the comedy!), dark comedy it is. In the first week, we’ll get more about the characters, their background, shortly, mere introduction. The second week, we were introduced to underneath problems: South-North Korea difference in ideality, pride, and prejudice within, trust problem, which all of them is just a small picture of the future problem(s). Let’s breathe a sigh of relieve in the 3rd week, I called this romance week, there is no CLEAR evidence of a political issue in this week, just the growing feeling between the pair. 4th week presents us tears as its main dishes, the back-to-back episode led and provide the viewers very delicious family moment as an appetizer, just to reveal a heavy choice of the dishes, they add a slightly sweet taste of romance and familial thingy to chill your feeling, but not enough to digest all the tears. As 5th week going on…you heard heartbroken everywhere, misunderstand piling, emotion bursting and layers revealed.
