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 .

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.

      Watch Iljimae if you're looking for action Zorro kind of story, and you can neglect the romance part there! :)
