Silly plotting and sophomoric directing are somewhat compensated for by some great performances. It has some plot twists that are so badly done they're almost funny (in one or two I literally laughed out loud), but the leads never fail to give themselves to their parts 110%. It's almost worth watching just to see Yoon Gyun Sang give a lovely, understated performance with a great deal of gravitas.

The plot becomes increasingly ridiculous to the point of makjang.. The directing, in particular the blocking, was noticeably bad on more than one occasion.

For those looking for romance, this is not your drama. Having said that, there was something compelling about the Adventures of Scrappy and the Giant that I tuned in for each week. No matter how silly it got, the actors really sold it and that carried me through to the end. I won't be rewatching it though

I did like it, but I wouldn't like to watch it again.
For the story, I felt that it was dragging too much sometimes, especially in the middle of it. Although it is worth to be patient until the end. I've done it and I don't regret it.
For the casting, my favorite characters in the whole drama are Kim Yoon Soo prosecutor, Kwak Young Jae, and Ki Myeon Joong. Honestly, it's worth to watch it because of this 3. The 3 actors did a great job to impersonate them.
Music of it wasn't bad but it didn't make me listen to them besides the drama.
Overall I give 7 because of those 3 characters, 'cause they are worth to be watched.
