I see the same elements of this show from Arang & the Magistrate (and that was a good drama). I really want to love this drama. And I've known the casts on other dramas and I especially love seeing Jung Il Woo as the lead. But there's no major progress on the storyline so far. Do we have to know more secrets from the past? Is there a twist or something? I thought the King would die any moment soon 'cause he's been going nuts for a long time now. The villain is not even good at being bad, for all we know, we just need that dragon to be alive again or else there won't be any action at all. I've been waiting for our main leads to do something, you've seen too many ghosts and yet no one bothered to ask what do they actually know??? I bet the ghosts have so much to say, but no, they're just walking around then disappearing on thin air. For now I'm giving this show a 3. Hoping it will pick up on the 2nd half.
I don't know about some people here.. but I LOVE THIS DRAMA--the first half was silly but hilarious and cute; while the 2nd half was melodramatic and yet entertaining, too angsty and ridiculous--which is again, entertaining! There are too many great scenes here, and the acting of Aaron Yan is superb! Sure, the first half was definitely where all the fun fluffy moments are, and it started being serious and leaning on the frustrating issues, but that's how I enjoyed this drama even more. It's not entirely rainbows and for me, that's more relatable when you see how crazy or stupid the characters could be for LOVE, GREEDINESS, GUILT OR PAIN... in the end, it should just leave you with lessons learned and maybe more matured judgment on life and people. So yes, I WOULD WATCH THIS DRAMA AGAIN AND EVEN RECOMMEND IT.
So I am currently on a back-to-back drama marathon of this and Fall In Love w/ Me... which is why I am torn on shipping Aaron with Tia or Puff.. ugh.. and I equally love his chemistry with both actresses. Aaron Yan stole my heart on these 2 dramas, I love his many expressions and his hot and cold image.. not to mention he's so good-looking. I'm glad I decided to try taiwanese dramas while watching the recent Kdramas as well. I RECOMMEND THIS DRAMA along with Fall in Love with Me :)
