I actually pushed this drama back for a couple of weeks because I thought the premise seemed like any other school drama, but I promise it's so much better. There were no villains or dramatic tropes, just our homegirl Bok Joo growing up and gaining confidence. The male lead was adorable and had such a great personality, because I'm sure we've all had enough cold, stoic male leads. The characters were written so well and I fell in love with every single one of them, even the second female lead and that's pretty rare.
The story was really well paced and was relatively light but definitely kept me interested. It was such a cute story that kept a smile on my face the entire time. This drama broke out of a lot of tropes that dramas normally have. I love the fact that Joon Hyung was WILLING to go to a therapist to talk out his problems, and that he actually has an aunt, uncle, and brother that took him in, cared for and loved him. There was no sibling rivalry though it may seem like that from the plot description, and because the brothers were so supportive of each other which was extremely refreshing.
This couple had so so so much chemistry. They felt REAL and GENUINE and I got so many feels. The second lead female Song Shi Ho actually had a lot of depth to her character. She wasn't just a jealous ex-girlfriend there to cause problems for the main couple, and she definitely showed a lot of growth as the drama progressed.
I loved the soundtrack (esp. Parts 1 & 3) and I still have them replaying on my phone.
I thoroughly enjoyed this drama and wholeheartedly recommend this well developed, genuine, and adorable drama. Go watch it! And I will leave this review with one word: SWAG! (this makes sense once you've watched the drama .-.)
