"Play"I liked this episode. Yes the two leads don't interact, at least not in person. But for someone or anyone who reads the book it's quite easy to fall in love with both leads being able to embody the characters. The only thing that is slightly off is the casting of the best friend. Her actions and vocalization remind me of a child and she's supposed to be a sophomore in college. read more I hope it gets better with her in the plot line.
"Family Drama "Okay. I love family Melodramas. They are my guilty pleasure. This one seems to be one of the good ones with a strong introduction to all the families and most of the love lines to come with the preview giving you a glimpse into the next ones. I think it's quite interesting the family dynamic and each character interaction seems to have good chemistry whether it be hate, love, or platonic. It's read more very well casted as of right now. The only storyline that bothers me is the Second Brother but hopefully it gets better.
"Never Monologue!"Didn't Joon Gook learn anything from The Incredibles?!? Whenever you monologue you lose. It isn't all about you. :D
"Amazing..."Could they give her worse bad luck? The girl can’t seem to catch a break, but its adds the mystery and drama. This first episode really just drives you right into the problem giving you a lot of information, but not much in character development. Character background though is really important in this episode, also her sad scene was perfect for me. She's very physical, and with a drama that is dubbed read more over, I think thats whats a good quality to have.
"interesting Beginnings"So far, the start is interesting. The way it's set up we see his perspective more than the female leads, which is different, where you normally see hers first. It kind of makes her side of the story more interesting to find out.
""They finally got together! Yeah! Okay I love how sweet that exchange was, but I also love Zi Yu hammering him the next day, ah friendship. The build to the big villain is getting slightly slow for me, but the ride is fun on the way. The arsonists case takes centerfold as we try to figure out the mastermind is. Also, don’t lie to someone you know is going to figure out read more the truth, it only hurts them in the end. Especially when you believe a psychopath killer is dead and he isn’t.
"Okay Start "Okay, I have to admit. I find the scene where she gives her letter extremely awkward. Its comical, but awkward. This episode for me, makes me think that's there not much to this character other than impulse, and doesn’t make me feel bad for her idiocy, instead makes me feel sorry that the actress was given. But I keep thinking of when this was made, and the dumb girl with a good read more heart was more the norm back then (At least in my viewer experience). I’ve seen better first episodes, but since I’ve seen this show twice already, I know the character development gets better as time goes on. So I’m excited for the next episode with more main character interaction. I do like how they destroyed the house in this one, it's more plausible than other adaptations I’ve seen.
"Is this second lead syndrome?"The acting is getting better and better each episode and the male lead has amazing chemistry with all the ladies but seriously...am I rooting for the villain if I'm rooting for Choi Yoo Jin? I know I know, she's not really innocent and may have killed someone, also she is kinda crazy, but I kind of like her chemistry with K2 better than Anna and him...
"Nice"The roles fit perfectly to the actors and they fit perfectly together. Looking forward to their romance and adventures together. I wish there would be an episode (or two) where they're lost in woods or something, I imagine it to be hilarious :D
""I love where this is going. Things are not rushed and very realistic. I think it portrays friends falling in love very accurately. How getting used to someone can lead you to ignore your feelings and start feeling too comfortable. You unconsciously bury any feelings that might lead to a significant disturbance in the long term relationship and in turn protect yourself from getting hurt. You avoid any risks that may lead read more to failure and end up being stuck where you are not moving forward or backward. This state of limbo is a recurrent theme throughout the show. It applies to all aspects of their lives be it their careers or their love life and when they start to take a step forward in one aspect the other gets affected as well and starts desiring more as everything is interconnected. I think this has more depth than it lets on.
""I really love the flow of the story and I love how min young acts.
"Qu Yuan is extremely naive > < "Qu Yuan is extremely naive > < and it looks like cant fight at all and then even enraging the emperor. I mean, who doesnt know that u cant speak honestly with the emperor?
"Realistic and relatable"I picked this drama up because I LOVE LOVE LOVE dramas about friendship and growing up and I feel like we don't get to see a lot of sisterhood in romance dramas as much as we should // ie. girls supporting girls!!!
"Unexpected"I expected this show to start off in a peaceful way.
"So beautiful"The opening scene with Noh and Yuri was so beautifully done. I am in awe with these two actors. They committed 100% to their character, the connection with each other, and the emotional depth needed for such a scene. They performed like seasoned veterans. I am so proud of these two young stars. Their scene caused me to cry more tears than I've cried in years.
