Cast & Credits
The 30 episode drama series had its dull moments, but it did not spoil its essence.
I really enjoyed the storyline and the acting. A few of the characters were over the top especially the brother and sister team. Her voice was annoying, but bearable.
The music was fair. There was one song I wanted to add to my kdrama ost list on YouTube , but I couldn't find it. It was one of the best song for the drama.
This drama is not big on romance. That's a good thing. Like most Korean dramas I watched there was always two men competing for the lead actress heart. This time it was three, even though, the third one was overlook too many times. I am please to say that he will eventually be in heart because he is already apart of her soul.
