It is intriguing and entertaining. And a little bit odd. Because this is about love for books in Joseon, but it looks simply as a madness about them.

There are bookworms, a bookwolf and a bookpig. There are authors of their books, but also there is a book without the author, because he denied his book. There is also a living book. And bookthieves, and reading under the blanket in the night. All of this is a background for the strange story including murders, sword fights, bromance and of course books.

Scholar Jang investigates the murder case and tries to find the book. In the end will he love and protect the girl or the book?

I love this short drama, it is funny, intelligent and original. The places of filming are really beautiful. Han Joo Wan as a scholar Jang is lovable.
If you love books you must watch it :)
