Cast & Credits
It has the treasure hunt feel to it throughout, which supplies danger and intrigue, it has a romance plot that is realistic and honest, it has political aspects and the far reaching hands of corrupt and powerful businessmen, and it has police investigations. I mean really, what more is there?
The actors and actresses all played their roles really well. Especially Kim Sun Ah as Heo Cho Hwi and Lee Dong Gun as Kim Bum Sang. They were very real characters and their romance was just wonderful to watch. I swear you can feel them fall in love, feel their intensity, and they're very 3D in their personalities. I've seen a lot of romance dramas, and I have to say that even though the romantic plot wasn't the main priority, these two are my absolute favorite couple. That's even taking into account QIHM's couple! They fit so well together, their teasing and one upping each other was hilarious to watch, and their love and comforting of each other was even better. It was a fun ride to see them finally trust one another.
The supporting cast was also very well acted. The crazy and conceited Joo Hyun was hilarious, if not annoying at times. I really enjoyed watching her character develop and strive to be more and think more than just about herself. Officer Kang was also played very well. While he may be considered second male lead, I really loved him. I can't say much more without giving anything about later plots, but he's adorable.
The music in this was pretty good. There were some times where I thought they could have chosen a better song, but it never really detracted from the scenes. Overall, it didn't bother me too much. There is that one song (Can't remember the name) that is the ending theme that I really enjoy and is stuck in my head. XD
I guess my main point is, if you want hilarity, romance, danger, a good plot,intrigue, treasure hunts, and realistic couples, this is a drama you have to watch! I could gush all day and fangirl all over the place about this drama, but I'll force myself to stop and console myself over the fact that there isn't a second season by re-watching it and pretending there is. :P
Story: Kind of have mixed feelings about it. It was very well written because it had a plot and at the same time kept the lightness of usual romcom fare. I also liked that the romance was very simple and straightforward. However I'll be honest and say that the antique crimes setting wasn't the most fascinating and often bored me. Cute simple ending.
Acting/Cast: Kim Sun Ah and Lee Dong Gun are already known to be talented actors but i just loved thier chemistry. It wasnt intense or anything but thier relationship felt very natural which matched the lightness of the drama (it didnt focus heavily on romance).
I thought it was interesting that Kim Jung Hwa played a supporting role when she started out playing main roles in dramas and movies. I dont know but her acting in this was just over the top. It really made her character annoying. I did think her side romance with the Chief was cute. Oh and I cant forget to mention Park Ki Woong who although only had a supporting role as KSA's brother, he managed to play a significant role by the end. He is just an amazing actor so it was nice to see him in this.
Music: Fit the drama but nothing too memorable.
Rewatch: I dont think this is something i have to see again.
Overall if you like light crime dramas then you'll enjoy this, but if your looking for something more engaging id say look elsewhere.
