Cast & Credits
The acting is good. Kim Sae Ron is a great little actress and I hope that she can keep that skill into adult hood. I enjoyed her portrayal of Yeon Hee with both vulnerability and strength. Yoon Shi Yoon also did a good job as Heo Jun. He had the most character development and he was a cool character. The other actors were ok also.
The music is good.
I won't rewatch this.
If you like supernatural historical dramas or a Yoon Shi Yoon fan, then this isn't a bad watch.
