This drama was one of my most anticipated dramas this year (the other two being Gaksital and Innocent Man), and I’m glad it didn’t disappoint me. It even surpassed my expectations.

The story wasn’t really so original, though there are some hints of originality in it. The story loosely reminds me of 49 Days because of the idea of a mission in order to receive a reward. But I liked the story anyhow, because the concept was somehow original in a lovely way. The fantasy element was just daebak. I so love the fantasy. I love it, I love it, I love it! The fantasy really carried this drama up to the end. Also, I love the side stories. This drama has got to be one
of those with great side stories.
The cast was amazing. They were convincing enough to make my heart break into pieces and put those pieces back together again each time. I never found Lee Jun Ki attractive, but why is he so damn gorgeous here (or is it just me who thinks that way?)? I guess I’m starting to believe the theory that post-army look is agfjhkljhklfjlgkjglkjgkjhdfljgksd so much better than their pre-army one. Moving on, Lee Jun Ki’s attractiveness is not really my main point, but the fact that he’s such a good actor. The guy knows how to act and I was really surprised with how good he is. Then there’s Shin Min Ah, who I think is really a perfect catch when the drama involves a mythical creature or any of that sort, so I wasn’t really surprised when she was cast in this drama. Oh, and how I adored her in this! She gave me a different feeling here than when she was a Gumiho, and I love this feeling. As for Yun Woo Jin, it’s the first time I’ve encountered him, but he has a lot of potential in acting. He may not be as good as the other two, but he had those moments where he shined, at least for me. Oh, and I’m gonna miss those adorable puppy eyes. As for the supporting cast, they’re too many for me to write about each one of them, but I just want to say how I adored all characters. Each character had good substance and it really helped a lot that those characters were well-portrayed, so I commend the actors for that.
Beautifully twisted and awe-inspiring, this is truly an endearing drama that may have some forgettable moments, but the feeling it gives will surely linger on.
