I was thoroughly engrossed from episode 1. The chemistry between Do Hyung and his fiance is intense. This show is so noir moody it reminded me of Heartless City, so I looked up the screenwriter. Yep, both dramas are written by Yoo Sung Yul. But I hope this one will have a happier ending. The character of Cha Yoon Mi as of episode 5 is still as an observer. She may sympathize but she hasn't emotionally interacted with the others yet. I am waiting to see how her character develops.
I think you just have to be in the mood for slapstick, and I am in the mood because I just laugh along. Its sort of like a Chinese Mel Brooks flick. A shallow but good natured young man who is mostly a gamer, gets sucked into a time warp and lands in the Three Kingdoms. And guess what? - he can still text his sister, who amazingly immediately understands in ten words what happened and gets a solution! Meanwhile roaming around he befriends extraordinary people in Chinese history and gives them advice. Got it? Well, its a load of laughs if you are in a silly mood and can giggle when he tries to comfort an old world maiden that she shouldn't feel bad if she isn't a virgin because young women are naturally curious and want to experiment. :-D
