I can't believe that JTBC decreased the number of episodes from 50 to 26. They spent too much time on the adults (the cheating husband especially) that they didn't have time to really develop the OTP. I also love Namgoong Min, but they had him acting so silly and immature that it was disappointing. The other issue is the young Yoo Joon Soo is tall and the adult YJS is shorter than the other man characters that he once toward over---even so, I could overlook that, but they had the adults be very annoying to the point I wished the had stayed with the younger actors. Cutting the story made it feel unfinished.
This drama started out good, but around episode 8 it started going off track. It became very obvious, even before the drama behind the scene came to the surface, that the director was trying to push the second lead into the lead position. The fact that the scripts would be completely rewritten at shoot that they became useless was obvious in that scenes that belonged to Jung with Seol(in the webtoon) were given to In Ho to act with Seol. The fact that there was so much to tell about Jung in order for people to understand his character was replaced with "who cares about In Ho and his stupid piano" scenes. So disappointing because Seol came across as wishy washy--betraying her boyfriend. Seol in the webtoon wasn't the slightest bit interested in In Ho--zero and he knew it. No love triangle at all.
I put off watching this drama for years and to be honest, I don't feel like I was missing anything. Didn't care for the romance. I wanted the lead to go with the other girl because the lead female's character was lacking. I didn't like the fact that she went along with deceiving the Chairman and was willing to turn her back on her friends because she wanted to be this hateful woman's child. I just never warned up to her character--maybe because I've only seen her as a villain in other dramas, but there was nothing to like about her deceiving a good man because her "mother" just wanted to be with a rich man. I'm on episode 16 and I don't think I can finish it--just not interesting enough.
