Typical ROM-COM K-drama with Usual Cliches..

STORY - average
This drama has usual k- drama concept which has been shown over the years .
There is an arrogant male lead who later changes into better person,
Naive female lead who is push over but suddenly become strong person after going through so much stuff and would say Enough is enough (I wouldn't say Just Enough),
Evil second female lead who can do everything to ruin FL's life,
Borderline second male lead who acts on his emotions and then feel sorry.
Many secondary characters/couples which are used for comedic relief.
Little Suspense/mystery as salt
But NOT a MEDICAL drama!

It started off with "not getting along with each other" due to misunderstanding on ML's side, then become "fallen in love with each other"
Seung joo was warm-hearted but after going through accident, his personality changes and he become very arrogant, aggressive and insults Joo In ah in every possible way, which In ah bears considering he is like that because he is traumatized and need to be cared for. Seung joo changes after some time and realises his mistakes and fall in love with In ah.
It gives off a feeling of lakorn in first few episodes.
But as time goes, Seung joo realises Love Is Fatal for him and there are usual make up, break up scenarios.

The ending was literally rushed & really really average and you feel - "Seriously? That's the end?" and then "but its ok at least drama is over."

Acting - good
Personally I didn't like the start and end of the drama, but I liked the part where main leads were together.
Thankfully, the chemistry between Ji Hyun woo and Lee Shi young is watchable so this drama was bearable for me. I enjoyed their interaction. It was good seeing Hyun woo in romantic role after Queen In Hyun's man. He should do better dramas. This is really sub-par for him. But he was good playing Seung joo as you would hate him at the start and then he grows on you. Lee shi young is great actress. she really gives a feeling of naive and nice character.

I watched this drama just because it was JHW and LSY.

Music - average
Rewatch - mostly no.
You can absolutely skip this drama. If you want to watch this, then watch from Ep. 6/11 to Ep.14/28.

Risky romance is a medical drama with no medical cases. The story like to focus on the relationship between the two protagonist and to built a romance that didn't really make sense. The male lead was too violent and childish, making it hard to imagine him with the girl. His condition, moreover, was used only when needed and they just forgot about it when it wasn't aiding the plot development. The ending, in addition, was rushed and didn't conlude everyones' stories well. At least this drama wasn't boring to watch.
