Cast & Credits
The story presented in this drama is typically a triangle love that many modern dramas have showcased. The only thing that differs is the time setting. A third story is written with consistent and good pace. And after that, the story progression seems to become slower. Although the pace is slower, the story and the pace are consistent. The first half of the drama is spent for the love story between the female lead and second male lead so don't be surprised if the appereance of the first male lead is not as much as the second lead in the first half. This drama isn't cringy but it's draggy. There are many plot holes but i still can grasp the story. Sometimes, the logic of the characters are illogical. The story is interesting but it lacks of details and it has quiet a lot of fillers. The ending is quiet good, confusing and rush at the same time. There are too many characters died in the end. The ending for this drama (republican era arc) is just the same with other republican era dramas
The casts' acting is good. I don't have any concern about it.
The music of this drama is quiet pleasing
If you're looking for romance drama with happy ending, i don't recommend you to watch it. But you can give it a try
