OMG, there was sooo much epicness in the first episode, I amscared they can't make the whole drama epic as that :X
There was an awesome OST, an awesome cinematography, awesome acting from the characters, awesome lines, awesome moments - sad and funny, and interesting - just awesome story, can't wait to watch MOOOOORE ASAP, but in the same time, if it is so awesome in the end, I am afraid I read more can't survive when it's over (and I am scared of a sad ending :X can't take it after "Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo")
I already love it, just watch it, give it a chance, I hope you'll like it too :)))

The cinematography is stunning. This is hands down the most beautiful drama yet this year! Which is quite a feat as some of the most beautiful dramas have been coming out this year. Sure some unique camera shots are barrowed, such as Kim Shin being seen through the eyes of the man he had just beheaded. (Sleepy Hollow anyone?)

Some how it escaped my attention that Kim Go Eun would be a read more main character! What a follow up to Cheese in the Trap. So far I really like her in this role! She's so cute and I love her energy.

Of course the boys, Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook, are amazing. Just the small time they have together really sparks their chemistry. All the sneak peaks at them together from the trailers have been promising and hinting. It's gonna be amazing. >_<

That said this episode was basically an information dump. There's a lot of ground to cover and the writer just wanted to get it out of the way. Which makes me sad. This year shows have been masterfully giving us the background info. For all it's problems Doctors did it well and currently Legend of the Blue Sea is really showing us how it's done. So I found this episode a bit all over the place as it quickly tries to establish the core story in one episode while moving the present story forward. It's not the worst I've seen, but it doesn't quite move smoothly enough. Some of the emotional impact is lost due to the speed.

Overall I'm super excited for this drama! The wardrobe/make up is awesome! The Angel of Death's wardrobe is so awesome. On anyone else I think it would be tacky, but Lee Dong Wook is so freaking hot a garbage bag would look amazing. Kim So Hyun's guest role was awesome and I loved her in it! (I had a freak out moment when I thought she would be in it for more than a guest role.) Gong Yoo looks so amazing and he's already adding so much depth to his character.

I look forward to how the story will go moving forward because it has so much promise in this rough episode. I like the mix that's going on. This balance of fantasy and a modern day Cinderella story. With all kinds of extra bits tossed in.

Well for first episode I felt so many things ..
I cried like a baby when she saw her mother in candle light
I laughed when the boys were tossing pepper
and I am surprised of the cast.
This HAS to be a good drama really.

^_^
I just thought at first the age gap between the mains is huge (physically) but I kinda like them
Hoping there will be a love triangle.

Gosh this drama is such a roller coaster and this was only the 1st episode!
It had me in tears at the beginning, broke my heart in the middle and had me so giddy with happiness at the end! I'm seriously in love with this drama (certainly the 1st ep) :D

Usually it's normal when smt sad happens in a drama you've been watching to have a tear in your eye, since read more you've been emotionally invested in the characters life, here? A completely brand new drama, yet 15 minutes in and I had a tear in my eye. That's quite something. 15 minutes more and it managed to bring another tear forth. That right there is some truly amazing script & acting.

And by the end of the episode I was so giddy with happiness, I totally laughed out loud.

The overall cinematography was so beautiful, it truly was like watching some super amazing grand movie, didn't feel like a drama at all! The music also added the feels.

And characters themselves. Their interactions. Fabulous!

If the rest of the drama will follow the 1st episode it'll be one of the greatest works ever created. nuff said ~
