The plot revolves around an inexplicable pull between two people and the romance that ensues between them. The main protagonist is the modern-day vampire who is apathetic towards everything in life until he showed up as her next-door neighbor (he's a germophobe, like in the webtoon). Her world changes as she feels the desperate need to get close to him. Will she finally be able to hug him?
~~ Based on theunTouchable Line webtoon created by Massstar.

This drama is lighthearted and fun, definitely something to pick up in between some angsty melos. Although I've only read up to about chapter 40 of the webtoon it's based on, the content of half, if not most of the episodes have been covered so I can say that it is definitely true to its original source. Scenes are depicted very similarly and even the dialogue is recognizable from the webtoon.

The storyline was interesting to me because of the unique concept that constituted the plot (a vampire who feeds off of energy through physical contact and a human who has mysophobia). It was well paced throughout and the drama did wrap up nicely. There were, however some loose ends, but the second season is rumored to air next month so hopefully, those will be taken care of. The climax of the story (within the drama) though, didn't seem to be as dramatic as they may have intended it to be. It didn't create the suspense or anticipation that it probably should have.
 I am actually a big fan of the male lead actor after his drama The Eternal Love, so I found myself inevitably comparing these two. That said, I think both lead actors did a good job of portraying their characters, but I never really felt the chemistry between them. Again, perhaps the second season may change my view on that.
As for the music, I did quite like two of the OSTs. They fit the tone of the story well and were memorable enough, as well as not too overused.
Overall, I would recommend this drama for a short and simple watch, as there are only 16 episodes at around 30 minutes each. I also definitely recommend reading the webtoon!

The drama is fun to watch and it is simple & lighthearted , each episode is about 30 min of duration .

I find the plot interesting as it is not as the other typical vampires series , so it is very superb ! the drama was well paced with the interaction between Li ShiYa & Jiang ZhiHao but the parts where the writer tried to put some suspense into the story did not work as it was not dramatic .

The actors did well portraying their characters , but as for the chemistry between the couple ( ShiYa & ZhiHao ) I did not feel that they are truly in love .

The OST fit the drama mood , I enjoyed it very much . I liked the ( Be Brave To Love ) it just perfectly suitable for this drama as an opening song .

Am not sure if I'll rewatch this drama cause it lacks the suspense , but overall it is a nice choice if you want to watch something light .
