I think this show proves that something can be bad and still be entertaining. I don't know about others, but I felt slightly ashamed of myself for enjoying this drama. I just couldn't get rid of the feeling the writers were doing psychedelics.

The main problem I had with the show was the writing- there were too many elements mixed together. The supernatural element especially was only thrown in from time to read more time- as if someone occasionally remembered it was supposed to be there, but didn't know how to fit it in. The ending felt strange for that reason. The acting was a bit clunky at times, but I felt that the actors did the best they could with a dubious script- or in the case of the actor who played Alex, with a character who was written with very little personality.

But, like I said, I enjoyed this show. The romance was sweet, although I was angry at the main female lead more than once. Jin and Kay had a lot of personality and weren't bad to look at. The case of the day, while usually weird and (for some weird reason) leading everyone to forgive someone who committed a crime, was usually interesting.

If you are looking for something amusing and not overly coherent, this might be for you.

There were a lot of aspects that made me want to like this show, like the idea of it happening in a nail shop and the supernatural aspects were good, but even they could not save it for me. I could not get over the relationship aspects. Normally relationships are normally over done in a drama because there has to be drama, but this was different. These are the least healthy relationships read more I have ever seen. They even set a woman back up with her abusive husband and are happy about. All the men are super jealous and controlling. There is only really one good guy in the show and guess what, he doesn't get the girl! I ended up watching the show, but trying to ignore every relationship that happens in it, but that doesn't leave very much.

    I thought the plot was pretty surprising, I was going to watch it just for fun because it seemed quite simple, but parts of it ended up being quite deep and sentimental. It was a nice surprise, and I was never bored. Ending was a little rushed and way too fantastical but I enjoyed it anyways. It was very entertaining and was creative.

      This drama mashed up a bunch of different dramas together. I liked this drama, but you can't take it to serious.

    Hmm this drama was a bit in between for me. I did enjoy the cute cross-dressing and amazingly hot guys but it lacked in plot and dialogue. I found the storyline rushed, far fetched and honestly, Twilight-esque. I gave it a 7.5 because I like nailpolish and Paris. lol xD Tbh I'm being a bit too harsh, it wasn't that bad and it's a short watch if you just want something to take the steam off.

    At first I liked it but the more I watched the worse it got, the last episode just annoyed me it seemed so rushed and the storyline was all over the place probably the worst drama I've watched because I got so annoyed at the writers. The only reason I put up with it was because of Thunder but still not worth it in my opinion.

    This drama was just all over the place and I stopped watching it about half-way through.
