Loved this show!!
10 March 2018 | by cmaglaquiSee all my reviews

I don't usually go for fantasy type dramas, but this one looked intriguing, so I decided to watch it. I'm glad I did. It was very enjoyable. I like everything about it, and hated to see it end, as with most other Korean dramas. This one was not only fun and humorous, but also very cinematic. I even had fun with all the costumes and backdrops of the show. Nicely casted and great storyline. Watch it! You won't be disappointed.
