Cast & Credits
Not over the topPhoenix definitely had it's good days and bad days, which I've come to expect in long dramas. There were quite a few characters I didn't really care for, however the ones I liked kept me coming back.
Applauds go out to Lee Ji Eun (Hong Soo Ha) and Seo Jung Min (Seo Ha Joon). Both did a fantastic job in their roles and really kept the show afloat. No spoilers other than the bad guys/girls were bad and the good guys/girls were good. The last couple of episodes I almost didn't watch - but I'm glad I did. Through out the show the writer seemed to really try hard to bring out the humanness in us all and the end focused on that.
If you like Monday through Friday dramas I'd put this on one in my recommendation list. While it may not be the best daytime drama you'll watch, it certainly has a redemptive quality about it.
No comparison to the original - this is just badI loved the original and was really looking forward to this. Initial episodes stuck close to the original and then just went off on its own strange track. The female came across as a diabolical, conniving, materialistic, selfish woman and I had more sympathy for the villains. The second lead was sort of interesting in the beginning and then later came across as entitled and utter brat.
There was so much drama off-screen as well. The main male lead quit and was written off. So was the second female lead. The PD changed and at one point, additional writer was brought in. The writer threatened to quit but then stuck on and said would work with production. The second male lead became the main lead. The ratings reflect the mess.
It got so boring that I dropped it halfway through. I know several other daily drama regular viewers who have stopped watching as well and called it the worst daily they have encountered. If I could, I would rate this less than 1 star but that is the lowest you can give.
