**Haters gonna hate** ==I doesn't matter how much hate this drama received, in a year where most of K-dramas fell flat forgetable at least this one is memorable for good or for bad!== [spoiler] While the plot obviously has some troubles to wrapped up the story at least all the cast was good, remember actor can't really make changes on the story so it's not their fault.The only thing I was dying for was to make Yongsan a queer characters, we didn't see much of him and honestly he suffers one of the worst parts in the story, the way writter handle his brother's death was so bad and pointless. And finally and something personal, I had my issues with Dosan at first but I'm a sucker for unconditional love on fiction so at the end I love him.[/spoiler] Would I reccommend this to someone? Probably not unless they're fans of Suzy or Nam Joohyuk Will this be the best K-drama of the year? Definitely not but easily one of the best 15. My score: 7.6/10

It started off strong and had lots of potential, but it kinda came off as a boring story with a boring main couple, disguised as interesting with beautiful actors/actresses and beautiful cinematography (and I happen to love Nam Joo-Hyuk because of _Weightlifting Fairy_). The only subplots I liked were Ji-Pyeong & grandma’s, as well as Chul-san & Sa-ha’s. [spoiler]Also, the ending was the crappiest, most rushed and unsatisfying ending I’ve seen in a long time.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
