Good and sweet office drama!
The characters and the actors are really making the drama. The story itself is overall simple and linear, but it unfolds at an enjoyable pace.
I didn't really like the first episode, and after completing the drama, it really doesn't reflect the rest of the show, so hang on until the second episode no matter what!
The romance aspect takes the back seat in the drama, the read more main couple has their cute moments, but it's a really small part, and don't expect much cuddling and kissing. However it really fits the story and the characters well, more romance and the drama wouldn't have the same taste. Just don't get in hoping for any big romantic gesture at any moment.
The friendship between Eun Ho Won, Do Ki Taek and Jang Kang Ho) seems really genuine and is used very well. I loved how they linked every character, the side characters aren't just here to serve the main character's story, they are well developed and have their own growth through the drama.
I'm very conflicted about the last episode, while I liked the ending (very open), the whole episode felt rushed. It seemed whole parts that could/should have been developed where condensed in one short scene or just happened off camera. You almost see the writer rushing around to tie up all the loose ends!
I also felt like a few plot lines weren't fully exploited, mostly in the first half of the drama, as if they were trying something but weren't sure what to do with it in the end.
