The best part is definitely the cast; for all the eye-glowing and floating blue orbs the magic comes from actors like Choi Jin Hyuk. The dark fairy tale mood of the first couple episodes gradually finds a fun lightheartedness (after what happens you're going to want some fart jokes thrown in). It's totally makjang, but entertainingly so. Besides CJH, Jo Jae Yoon was a scene-stealer here and always made me smile. The rest were commendable, and LSG was adorable as always. Suzy very slowly warmed up to it, and although I love the girl, I would've cast someone else. Yoo Dong Geun was absolutely perfect for Lee Soon Shin. My only gripe was with the director for the following crimes: inappropriate ballad-playing, endless staring contests, excessive reaction shots, and elongating scenes overall. Nevertheless, I hope to watch more "Writing of the Nine Houses"; plenty of great writing between the absurd melodrama.
