This isn't my favorite genre, but I did finish it. First, it's a fantasy about humans, ghosts and demons. It's not going to make sense the way a mystery would. If you can't get past that, you should watch something else. The acting was very good - it was an excellent cast, and they each created memorable, individual characters. Kim Sung Oh gave a marvelous performance as the embodiment of evil; he's worth watching the whole show for. I was less in love with the two leads. The supporting actors were the real stars of this show. I felt it dragged at the middle, stopped watching, then came back to it. It's not the greatest drama, but for what it is - a fantasy, sometimes over the top, and just silly - it's well done. Even the special effects and CGI weren't terrible. It's a solid Grade B as a movie, and I'm giving it 4 stars because I think people are slamming it unnecessarily.
Outstanding drama, excellent on all fronts. Cast, crew - Bravo! Never struck a false note and had a fine ending.
Just watched this for the second time and it's a lot of fun. Lee Hong Ki is delightful, and jung Yong Hwa is also quite charming. I'm sorry that there wasn't more music, with that level of musical talent available. Jang Geun Suk has a wonderfully mobile face, whether he's being all stern or just silly. He sneers better than anyone and probably has the best set of eyebrows in K-drama. The one lame part of the drama is the whole helpless female role for the lead actress - I'm just tired of seeing guys dragging girls around and the girls acting like doormats. That drops it to 4 stars for me. A fun, lighthearted show for a chilly rainy day.
