I'm not sure why this has an 8.5, but I found this drama thoroughly entertaining! If you want to see my "GIF Review" of this drama, which is basically just a fun overview, it's at my blog www.devonandcornwall.wordpress.com
So, for story I gave this a 9.5. I loved the pace, I loved the progression, and I really enjoyed the growth of the characters. Our OTP were super cute, although I will say read more that their chemistry wasn't exactly sizzling. Maybe that's why people didn't give it higher ratings? No, they weren't ready to claw each other's clothes off with their steamy gazes, but their love was just as satisfying and intense--just in a different way. Because they are different characters than the usual drama, and so of course their love would be unique.
The cast was my favorite part about this drama, so I gave that a 10. Every character is fun to watch. Even the "bad guys" were hilarious in their comedy of errors storyline, and the way that they sort of accepted their karma when it came calling. Almost like they rather expected it all to crash down on their heads. The OTP had so many moments worth remembering and re-watching, and I think my cheeks started to hurt from smiling. Our side characters were hysterical, and even though a lot of time was spent on them towards the end, I didn't mind. Actually, I loved it. They were a joy to watch. And I usually hate side character stories!
As far as "fun to watch" dramas go, this one was dang near perfect. There were sad and emotional parts sprinkled in there, but for the most part, it is a positive drama with a GREAT ending. Incredibly satisfying, with all loose ends tied up, and questions answered.
I watched this during a handful of "sick days" and "snow days," and it cheered me right up!
