Cast & Credits
It's not that the special is necessarily terrible. It's just........not exactly good either. The characters are still the same, and the situations are (mostly) in line with something you might expect them to go through (although there were a few things that had me side-eyeing), but because the writer doesn't have the luxury of ten episodes to really flesh things out, the whole thing ends up feeling very rushed and incomplete. I think if this had been a ten episode season 2 instead, it probably could have been just as good as the original season as all the necessary ingredients are there. But as it is, it's just a disappointment.
Overprotected Kahoko (the original series) has officially made it into my top ten favorite Asian dramas of all time, so I definitely recommend watching it, but I would suggest skipping this special. It's a waste of time.
