Kyaaaaaaaaaaaa this drama is just WOW big times!!!!!!Every scene was better than the previous one! The only question that I was asking myself during this drama was: "Why I haven't watched this drama before?"

Why you MUST watch this drama!
- A beautiful pure love story between a gumiho Choi Kang Chi and Dam Yeo Wool
- intense with a lot of action!
- it makes you laugh
- and what I read more always LOVE about a quality drama is that it gives you all EMOTIONS

The beginning was soooo DAEBAK! A love story between Choi Kang Chi's father and mother was something that it made me keep watching it! l And then (after the first 2 episodes) my addiction started! EVERY SCENE IS UNPREDICTABLE AND FULL OF TWISTS!!!!!
The ending of this drama is EPIC! I can't get over it and keep replaying that scene over and over! :D

Music: This drama has one of the best OSTs of all time! From the thrilling to the romantic ones! I seriously loved every ost in here!

Acting:
Suzy is a good actress,I like her, but yet her crying face seems a little fake. She pulled this off pretty good ;)
OMG! Lee Seung Gi was a major reason why I started this drama. I'm a big fan of him and in this drama he was AMAZING! OMG, while he was crying I was crying along with him :'(
The other ones are pretty good too :D

Too add one more reason why I liked this drama is that there are true quotes about life, love, friendship...
I just LOVE this kind of drama and I soooo thank writers! It's very unique and epic!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE! :D

The reason I began watching Gu Family Book was honestly because of Lee Seung Gi , but as the drama progressed I fell in love with the storyline . I got "the feels" in every single episode. I couldn't wait till the next episode aired, I would wait for what seemed like forever, it seemed like a new episode would never come again, it kept me wanting more! Just when I thought read more I knew what would happen BAM!!right in the face! It would blow my mind how many times it was able to surprise me . As for the romance of the drama, it .... I .....ugh....there's no way to put it into words that would describe it as magically as it is. I feel this pain in my stomach as I'm writing this review. The "feels " it gives me while just thinking about the drama can only be understood once you watch the drama from beginning to end. As for the reason why I rated the rewatch value so poorly was because I cannot afford to break my heart twice from such a perfect love story.. I cannot afford to shed anymore tears . Once I watched this drama I told myself that I would never watch anymore dramas again, because my heart hurt so much. I couldn't believe how much it HURT me . But I LOVE IT. My favorite drama .

I found the two series relatively similar, the men are strong fighters, you cry your eyes out watching random scenes (either because you cringe for the bad acting or fangirl over touching that man's perfect body), as always the main girl is annoying, stubborn as a mule and won't take no for an answer. The perfect nosy woman that people like for no apparent reason.

The difference between the two of them is the fact that Suzy can't act and Jang Geun Suk is cutter than Lee Seung Gi.

Conclusion?! Just watch Hong Gil Dong it's actually much much better..

both have the same main lead (lee seung gi) and are about a gumiho wanting to become human. A big difference is that gu family book is a historical drama :)

    I am watching it right now, but the acting skills of Kang Chi's mother was so bad. She couldn't even cry properly. That was the worst character and the worst actress I have ever seen. Story itself captured me in. Suzy got better at acting. Overall, I loved it.
