I debated on whether I should even type a review, but I think with all the 5 stars and people claiming it to be perfect, another view point might be helpful. I did not like the lead couple. The age difference was disturbing. The age of the actual actors doesn't matter. It's the age of the characters. We have a man (930+ years yes but still a grown man) that looks all of 40 and a teenager, a girl in HS. How is that romantic? Their relationship was that of father and daughter, especially in the way they spoke to each other. I kept hoping their would be some twist. There never was. The 2nd lead couple had a wonderful story and they were a delight to watch. The bromance between the males was great. Honestly, everything worked for me except the main couple. I adore fantasy, but that was not fantasy to me. And in the last episode an important character basically disappears as if he never existed which still angers me.
It's been a few days since I finished and my heart is still breaking. I want to watch it again...now! Maybe I'll head to the original. Damn Joon Ki. I was completely over him! Who told him to comeback. The cast, especially the brothers, was excellent. The story feels a bit rushed in a few places, but it's excusable. I <3 Secret Heart Ryeo.
