This show absolutely did not disappoint! It was nothing like what I originally thought it would be and is definitely underrated. The story is unique and something I've never really seen before, though it did remind me of one show. However, this drama holds its own ground very strongly! The cast was well picked, and it was nice to see a lot of diversity, acceptance, and humanity throughout the entire show.

Each episode had an interesting story to tell so each piece (aka episode) fit into the ending puzzle well. and each episode's story did just that perfectly! Granted, I haven't watched a lot of dramas so I may be wrong, and lots of these circumstances are ones I've seen before, however, I've never seen any of these circumstances played out so well (let alone mixed into the story so well) as this show has portrayed them. It was really amazing to watch each person grow and find the place that they belong, either by themselves or with the help of others. This show displayed so many different human emotions with real, honest humility and portrayed humanity as something tangible and kind.

I honestly learned a lot about many different things from watching this show.
