Cast & Credits
Problematic characters are interesting.As the title suggests, this drama is full of characters who make bad choice after bad choice. I felt like the drama did this particularly well by not trying to excuse the character's bad choices but also keeping their characters human.
As for my negative points, I felt like the ending a was a bit of a cop out but it also might be just my personal taste. A couple of the actors were at some points wooden, although overall I think the acting was good. Some of the characters did not have fully fledged characters, and their whole character appeared to be in order to carry the main characters, rather than having their own lives. The kisses were at times very awkward (even more than usual) but that may have more to do with censorship issues (just a guess).
Overall, the music was good, and most characters kept me engaged. I liked the fact there were multiple storylines to follow and that they overlapped well, and I felt like the storyboarding kept this very interesting. I enjoy dramas that have characters who I don't particularly like but who are interesting, and think anyone who is also like that might enjoy it. I also liked the fact that the drama mostly avoided playing on the weak female lead that I feel is overused in many dramas.
