the actors gave reasonably good performances. eric mun was his usual smexy self. lee kyu han showed some range as the cold-orphan-turned-cfo who could show his soft side to the one he loved (until after he got her & went a bit mad). jung yoo mi's hair was just wrong & distracting. you'd never know she's quite an attractive girl from watching this drama, but oh well. the other female lead was good as well. this was straight melo but w/o some typical cliches like the controlling parents, the poor female candy who lets the rich female cow abuse her, etc. my only complaint is that DF cut scenes--usually they cut the first minute or so from each epi, but in the last epi they cut a scene with yoo mi talking to her sister at the airport & a montage before the very end. not sure why they did this but b/c it didn't detract from overall show i won't say more.
i'm only on episode 2 so i can't give a full review. however, so far it's pretty entertaining and interesting. i can only hope this drama does not go the way of too many dramas before= starts out strong then fizzles out to end in mediocrity. my one complaint is that the musical numbers are NOT subtitled. i speak very little korean--only what i've picked up from my years of watching dramas--and i can only understand a few words here & there during the songs. it really detracts from the viewing experience not being able to fully understand what's going on at those times. this issue is more dramafever's fault than the drama's fault but i had to rate it one less star because of this drawback.
i really (really) REALLY love this drama. it's so funny & even though i'm not korean, i can totally identify with the throwback 90s vibe in all its glory. but am i the only one creeped out by tae woong liking shi won and asking her out!? it's not just that he's older than her (i'm married to someone 9 yrs older than me so i can understand that part) but the age difference coupled w/ the fact that they grew up together, they're like brother & sister, he was a teacher at her school, and he was with her sister (another girl younger than him & whom he tutored) kinda throws me off. ijs . . .
