This drama was both a delight to watch and an utter pain in the ass. I get where the director was going with the long drawn-out scenes but while those work aesthetically in a movie, they are just plain awful in a drama. I felt like for a majority of the screen time, absolutely nothing was happening. In fact, it was almost like the production company realized they had about 5 episodes worth of material so they had a pow-wow for ideas on how to stretch that into 16 looooong episodes. I also was not a fan of the like 3 songs that continually played on repeat.



That aside (and getting to the “delight” part) Jin Ah and Joon Hee were adorable and I loved every scene of them together. I especially loved how their romance bloomed and the moments playing up to them actually becoming a couple. Man, it made my heart race at times. I even enjoyed the different conflicts they shared in their relationship and how their various mistakes and misunderstandings were portrayed because it felt really real. I did, however, absolutely hate Jin Ah’s mother and felt like we never got justice for how terrible of a human being she was, no matter all her excuses of wanting the best for Jin Ah. I hated the fact that the drama refused to have her serve penance for her behavior and instead pulled this cop-out of basically everything being okay for her in the end.



Which brings me to the ending itself. Not the worst last episode in the history of finale’s but damn close. I could understand and get behind most of the conflict in Jin Ah and Joon Hee’s relationship because it seemed relatable and natural to me, I could even understand Joon Hee leaving for America and Jin Ah choosing not to go with him. I could not, for the life of me, understand why Jin Ah was seeing someone else after the time jump. It was like she gave up and was just giving her mom what she wanted. Maybe they were trying to show the contrast in her age/life experience compared to Joon Hee by having her “moved on” while he’s still pining away…but that’s a shallow excuse. I can get her being hurt that Joon Hee chose to run away, but I just could not understand her being able to be with someone else and lost most of my respect for her. I also think it would have been better if they had their separation and time gap earlier on in the series so that we had a chance for them to grow and heal together instead of rushing it all in the final minutes of the drama. I just didn’t like it at all. It left me feel like “So what that they’re together again?” because I honestly did not care anymore. I don’t regret watching the drama as a whole but this is definitely getting filed with the ‘what could have been’s’ and ultimately, forgotten.

I enjoyed this drama, it was full of love, really realistic. Some moments were slow so that's why it's not a masterpiece to me, but it's still really good. I agree, the last episodes weren't that exciting as the first ones.

This drama falls into the "amazing first half and boring, annoying second half" situation that every korean drama goes through. Repetitive soundtrack, freakish long episodes and so but so many slow motion scenes. Very disappointed.

It was interesting at first but then it got worst each episode. Their chemistry 10/10. Haein’s acting was really good but the rest was really disappointing. It took me more than 2 months to finish it.

I'm on 10th episode and I absolutely love this drama! I've watched 10 episodes in a row -it's just that good. OST is annoying as hell with some cheesy songs and I expected more passion between leads. There are too many "wall kisses" instead of something more realistic between two attractive adults. Jin A's mother is crazy and I hope someone is going to put her into mental hospital soon. I can't stand her. I hope for happy ending.

Do jeito que terminou, parece que eles só estavam pensando no prazo de entrega desse episódio final, podia ter terminado bem mais fechadinho. Sinto que foi pro intervalo e não voltou.
Talvez se no final de tudo eles realmente não ficassem juntos, seria bem mais interessante
, do que esse final jogado.
Tirando isso, é um ótimo drama, com a melhor escolha de elenco que já vi.

I love the OST so much <3

So the story itself was ok, but some of the scenes were so unnecessarily long that it made me bored a lot of times. And also, it feels like this drama deserved a way better OST.
