Cast & Credits
Some weaknesses are the sometimes unnatural acting and maybe the repetitive elements, but it can also be argued that the repetitiveness is the way to simplify and shorten the story.
It has some fluffy elements, but not as much as dramas that specialize in swoony moments. It's more realistic. I appreciate this kind of bickering chatter a lot more. A lot of the time I was like it would be great if there's somebody in my life who would say stuff straight to my face like this guy.
I think the tags attracted the wrong crowd for this drama. I don't think the point of this story is the age gap. According to ep1, their age gap is only 4 years (26 and 22). I assumed they are same age until I saw the tag and checked.
This story is also driven by the dialogues, like the references to the animal kingdom, historical facts (e.g. housewife started in Taisho era), and why the characters make such decision for each episode, so those watching raw will miss like 60-70% of the drama.
The ending is a bit ... (I guess no spoiler) but I think it is the ending this drama needs. It's very consistent with character development.
I already rewatched some of the episodes just to catch more details. Because it's different, I think I may occasionally rewatch parts of it.
