Okay, let's see. What can i say of this movie?
It is cute all over, it doesn't bore you, it doesn't make you skip any parts, it enters your heart, grows inside and leaves happily.
I am neutral about the music, there was a german song in the beginning, it was quite fun to watch Daikichi's fantasy and the music fitted it but other than that one song i don't really remember others, means they don't really stand out.
the story is nice, i love Daikichi and Rin's relationship. they do no cuddling, no "i love you so much daddy" but you just feel the love. It is the success of both the story and the actors.
so if you want to have a change of your cliché someone-dying, someone-fighting-so-hard-for-love movies, take the shot, you won't regret it.

The drama had a very good start, nice dialogues, nice colors, nice characters... the first episode has a complicated story and others are just a little bit simpler, which is why i gave a 9 to the story and not a 10.
each character is very interesting, and as someone who watches a lot of dramas this one is one drama i've enjoyed after a loong while.
and soundtrack is just awesome, i love it.

Idea behind: Korean variety shows usually tend to make me shed tears from laughing too much, but i won't deny that it wasn't always the case when i found my eyes burning while watching Grandpas Over Flowers. Na Young Seok PD is truly admirable for coming up with such an idea. Gathering up 4 veteran actors, who have worked day and night for so many years, with families built and lives spent in one single place, thus never really having the opportunity or  experience of traveling abroad in their younger days and filming a travel variety show with them is such a nice idea. Seeing how eager they are to finally see places they saw in pictures and read about, how exciting they find the idea of traveling with good friends at such an old age (the youngest is 69 and the oldest is 79), and how precious this vacation is for them as they all think that this time might be the last one  is so touching yet heartbreaking.Also, in Na PD's some other works , ie. New Journey to The West (which i adore) i sometimes felt that traveling abroad wasn't really an important issue. You could put that team in a four walls room and make them play games and i would laugh at/love them the same amount. But this series has such a nice balance of traveling and other variety points.Cast: The 4 veterans have such a good synergy, and so much friendship built in years they worked together it is always a joy to watch them together.  They all have such a deep appreciation as well as knowledge of art, places and life. (especially Lee Soon Jae; he knows SO much about everyting) They are a really good team although so different individually.  Lee Soon-Jae, the oldest of the group is the most energetic, has an impatient nature (he is always 10 steps ahead of the group) and pretty much represents the kind of tourist who would like to see a much as possible in a limited time, always thinking about the next destination and likes to be outside in the city returning to the hotel only to sleep. On the other side Baek Il-Sub the youngest is the trouble maker and the probably the laziest -mind you he has health issues so he isn't actually whining for no reason, well most of the time- , his ideal vacation is sitting in a cafe, sipping his coffee, eating desserts and observing people. He shrugs when asked about Versailles -it's just a luxurious furniture shop  and isn't really a fan of museums - at all (He is my spirit animal). His personality is very instinctive , he gets tired and angry easily reminding the viewers of a child but is in reality a big teddy bear walking around.  Finding the middle ground between these opposite personalities are 2nd oldest Shin Goo and 3rd oldest Park Geun Hyun. Shin Goo is filled with cutesy behaviour, a true lover of soju (his drunken acts and Lee Seo Jin fanship are the best) and the voice of reason. He knows how to sugarcoat trouble to calm Baek Il- Sub down and jokingly argues with Lee Soon-Jae to make him give in. Park Geun Hye on the other hand finds not getting involved in any arguments the easiest ( with his partner in crime Lee Seo Jin) and is ready to follow any decision others make just to stay out of trouble. Unlike his image on screen he has a child-like nature, has a huge sweet tooth and loves fooling around. Joining these cute veterans to take care of them is Lee Seo Jin who we know of historical dramas and Na PD's later works (he is pretty much Na PD's favorite nagging brother and person to annoy in the present) .  He is, in his own words, scammed to join the show and is ,by Na PD's words, the best thing  he has ever done by casting. Lee Seo Jin impresses by his ability to plan , satisfy the elder actors' wishes and still give a great entertainment performance by- well being himself.Music: Like all of Na Young Seok PD's other works the BGM is perfect and hilariously fitting the alarming moments as well as the touching moments. It is just so well chosen, proving the big effort the staff has put in editing.Overall: The show is a touching, simply beautiful travel-reality show. And with Na PD's signature touch it is utterly hilarious.

Story:
Kim Do Hyung: "joo young please wait a little more." "i will find joo young."
Detective Cha: "i'm sorry kim do hyung, we lost (x person)", "i'm sorry kim do hyung, (x person) is dead."
Yoon Joo Young: " i don't have right to do that.", "i'm sorry do hyung, it's all because of me."
Seo Jin Ki: "yah, banker ajusshi."
Chairman Kang: "will you (do that)?"
Detective Park: "stop talking cr*p."
Although the show was full of promises and potential in the beginning, i regret to say that the whole story can be summarized in the lines above.
A not so regular bank employee with special military skills going after the unlaw organizations to find his lost fiancee was a rare plot line by 2015 (although people going after baddies for a loved one is nowadays almost overused) so i remember being really interested in the project when it was first announced. plus it is written by Cruel City's capable writer. But unlike that one, the supporting roles were criminally underused and poorly written, i think this is the main problem of this series. the whole story revolves around one person (or maybe two - with Seo Jin Ki) and everyone else is just a side character to appear once in a while to create new challenges for Kim Do Hyung. Although Cha Yoo Mi is listed as a lead,  i beg to differ. She was such a frustrating character, she had no depth, never ever did something worthy on her own, always put herself in danger and always lost important witnesses or suspects. I could let it pass if she was a rookie detective but she is suppose to be a chief detective. I could say the same thing for almost everyone else minus Kim Do Hyung. Yoon Joo Young was such a mystery to me. She started badass, going after the mob boss she was working under and daring to co-operate with a detective. Then turned into a complete damsel in distress, then surprised me so much in her car scene in episode 5 and turned back in damsel in distress mode once again to suddenly go (pretend) badass in the last episodes. She is a major character for sure, but i think the 'show' did not love Yoon Joo Young, herself, but the idea of her.
I'm not saying the drama was bad, it is still superior to (most) dramas of the same genre, but it is a pity how much more it could have been. You had so much time to focus on the relationships between Kim Do Hyung/Cha Yoo Mi, Cha Yoo Mi/Yoon Joo Young, Seo Jin Ki/Hak Soo, Seo Jin Ki/Son Hye Joung , literally every one and anyone else. Just half of the writing in the Cruel City would do, but instead you just put Joo Young in danger repeatedly to rescue her repeatedly for 16 episodes.
Acting:
Kim Mu Yeol hard carried the show. His performance was followed by Ryu Seong Soo who was just as awesome. Both Lee Shi Young and Lee El are my favs but they were so underused that i'm hugely disappointed. I won't count every one, one by one but in short the whole cast was perfect in acting aspect. It was just that the characters were superficially written.
Music:
Love the soundtrack. The series is a part of my "on the treadmill" dramas, and the soundtrack plays a big role in this alongside the action scenes.
Rewatch Value:
I enjoyed the series over all and would rewatch it, maybe in 5 years once i forget the details.
Overall:
Again, the series was an enjoyable ride. But it is a huge '-could have been'.
