This was better than i expected, but the big emphasis on drinking got tiresome, with the same intro played over and over again. Key played a really obnoxious character and gave him life and depth - a good job. It was fun overall.
I've tried watching this several times and I always find myself dying of boredom. Maybe this gets better after the 19th episode, but I'll never know - I give up. I just don't find ji Chang Wook to be a very interesting actor. YMMV.
This was certainly the eye-candy drama of the year. Is there anything more gorgeous than Lee Joon Ki in a period drama? The story was also good. IU was a bit flat (as had been expected) but the rest of the cast was first rate. Worth watching if you like historicals - or just pretty Korean men. ;)
