I've just started watching this drama, and I must say it's turning out to be one of the best HKD's I've seen in quite some time. I will update my review when I've seen more episodes.
What's lacking in most of these K-dramas is the passion between characters. It would be fitting if the writers did not insult our intelligence and introduced more adult themes to the story line and stopped pandering to the immature and prudish viewer. It's been awhile since I've seen a K-drama which held my attention. That said, I'm very much looking forward to the direction this drama will be taking.
By far, this multilayered drama uncovers the core reality of the fringes of social culture. I was taken aback by the deep well of emotion pouring out of Joon Soo. This darkness that enshrouded his life made for an unstable mind which Hye Jin quieted through her saving grace. In essence both of them used each other to escape their demons (his past and her toxic relationship with her spouse) for it was a symbiotic relationship between the two of them. Unfortunately for Joon Soon, those demons clawed at him at every turn causing his anguish. Even so, he was still able to affect a positive change in Hye Jin's life making his purpose that much more profound. We all have a reason for being, his was to give Hye Jin a new lease on life. This is a series that will grab a hold of you and shake you up as I was captivated by it at every corner. It is indeed a drama for the ages.
