One of the best adaptations that works for both fans and new audiences
18 April 2018 | by pavat5999See all my reviews

While many details from the original manga are left out, I felt that the story is being told quite smoothly. It fills the details good enough to satisfy fans while letting the new audiences catch up with the story easily.

The quality of moods and tones in this drama are amazing.(Look at all those gorgeous scenes that fulfill our imagination from the original material) The acting is very good, especially those young actors who are the core of this story.

While people may argue the manga/anime is better, I would say that there are pros and cons considering the limitations and conditions of any type of medium. To me considering this as a drama series, it serves its purposes well and is highly recommended.

P.S. the ending soundtrack is one of best things about this series.
