Two of the finest male leads in K-drama deliver great performances, matched by Gong Hyo Jin all the way. Moving and entertaining character of an old man with dementia was created by Shin Goo. The supporting cast was likewise excellent. The writing was strong throughout. This is an outstanding drama all the way. And, 16 hours of Jang Hyuk - can life get any better?
Charlie's Angels in Joseon - who would have imagined it? Pretty lame CGI and unconvincing green screen., but a funny action romp. Good acting and nice action scenes as long as you're not too critical. For most things, it's a 3 , but for what it is - a good piece of fluff - it's a 4.
I have mixed feelings about this one. I like music dramas, but the music here wasn't wonderful, and there were too few songs, repeated too many times. The sound quality is awful - I was ready to go buy new speakers until I realized I should listen to some cds first - and they sounded fine, so it's teh recording quality here that's so bad. It's frustrating when song lyrics aren't subtitles in a music story, too. On the plus side, the acting was good, the plot held together - except for the overly rapid resolution of the custody issue in the last episodes - that was rushed and poorly developed and sloppily resolved. The HwaJa character was amusing at first and very tiresome by the end. So the good and bad balance each other - this isn't a must see, but there's no reason to avoid it, either.
