User Reviews

 
I enjoyed it.
6 July 2019 | by Me_KCSee all my reviews

This is one of the first Korean dramas that I watched and got me hooked. The story is not complicated but is deep enough to get excited on what happens next. The cast and crew did an excellent job. I truly had fun watching it and I've been going back to it (occasionally) to this day.
