STORY: Pretty dope! If you like rom-coms, this is a good one for you. The episodes are short and palatable and the story is actually really interesting. Most of the time it's pretty unpredictable, so it's a nice change from really cheesy dramas. Things occur pretty realistically (besides of course the whole "I see the future" thing), and the ending doesn't feel like an ending, but a new beginning.

I have a lot of feelings about the ending, but I'll spare you the spoilers. It did leave me feeling confused. It's the kind of ending that's got that perfect bittersweet feel but also demands a second season. And that's the excruciating thing about seeing it on YouTube: it lists the episodes as S1 E1 and so on as if it COULD get a second season. I would definitely watch a second season if it came, though.

ACTING/CAST: I'd say it was really well cast! They all look like they're having fun, and based on the BTS stuff, that seems to be the case. The acting is pretty good; it helps that the written dialogue is actually quite nice and natural. Cha Eun Woo really stole my heart and gave me some MAJOR Second Lead Syndrome, and I'm sure you'll feel the same as well.

My one gripe with the characters is that sometimes they disappear without a trace and only later do you wonder "Wait, where did they go?"

MUSIC: The music was pretty solid. It eased difficult transitions, especially when it came to the title card at the top of each episode. Any background music (which I often find meaningless or annoying in other dramas) is kept to a minimum which indicates, again, good writing and natural chemistry between actors. Want to know if a drama has bad writing? See how often they try to distract from their haphazard dialogue with "mood music." You'll find none of that in this drama.

REWATCH VALUE: I'd watch it again... but what I really want is Season 2.

To maintain a 'watch-life balance', even thriller-suspense lover audience needs to watch light, refreshing drama like this one. I have seen several dramas on life of idols but this one felt different. This is because, even though the main story is the struggle of an idol group to regain their popularity after they face bashing for plagiarism, here the manager was in the focus, not the idols. Seo Eun Soo has pulled the role of a bit clumsy but determined manager perfectly. I liked different songs they have come up with in this drama also. As they have announced it would have another season, I don't have any complaint about the open ending. I felt the chemistry between the main leads is a bit clumsy but I think this might be intentional as this drama will have another season and the main leads probably will have more scope to show their chemistry. In a nutshell, enjoyed this drama thoroughly and will be waiting for the next season.
