Let me start by saying that this opinion is obviously in the minority, so keep that in mind. :)
I think for me, the biggest disappointment about this show was its' unrealized potential. I loved the premise and I hoped it would be so much more than what it was. If I hadn't held any expectations, it's possible I would have liked it more.
That being said, it still had entertainment value. The plot is decent (if a bit cliche) and there are some really funny parts as well (the dad video was just hilarious!). In addition, I liked all the cast well enough individually, and the film is very polished from a technical standpoint (typical of Netflix productions).
But the show's execution just didn't work for me. The pacing in particular felt too rushed, which made it hard to engage with the characters, and I couldn't buy the chemistry between the main couple at all. That being said, I can't fault the actors themselves, since there were no glaring issues with their actual performances. It just seemed like Netflix tried to squeeze 12-16 episodes worth of content into 6, so there wasn't time for the usual character development etc. that I have come to enjoy in other K-Dramas.
In short, I can only recommend this to viewers who are looking for something light to kill time. Then again, your mileage may vary!
