Se o dorama fosse refeito com foco no Gwi e trama em cima do Gwi até com romance sem que ele perca o estilo maléfico e humorado, nossa, seria meu sonho! kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

I enjoyed it,however, I don't like when the things aren't developed properly or when they don't pay attention to when
scholar's face was burning bc of the sun but suddenly he was able to talk with the crown prince in the room during day time and he didn't have his black robe on... o.O

I'm also not satisfied with the end...
is she going to become a vampire? if not, she will grow old and then die but what happens to scholar then ?! plus I just can't imagine him being with the old her :P wtf or hmmm, how come he was able to bit her and resist her blood so easily ? and many more things like that...

I do recommend it, I was curious all the time what's gonna happen next and there were exciting moments :)

I liked it a lot. Lee Jun Gi has my heart! XD
I liked the plot, the OST, I even liked Gwi. Srsly, I wished
there were a happy ending for him as well. I didn't want him to die.

I don't understand the negative comments about this drama, not a masterpiece, but still, quite an interesting one and it gradually became more and more interesting.

The acting was amazing as always from Lee Jun-ki, but I liked the others' acting also. I was impressed by how good Lee Soo-hyuk played a villain!

Indeed, I wished the ending to be something more, but still, it was alright! The OST was really beautiful! 4/5.

I don't know if she really commited suicide, all that was showed after the explosion happened one year later. And it makes quite sense for her to be alive.

Already rewatching it ^^ Interesting story, awesome cast, acting and unforgettable OST! ★★★★★

The only thing that bothered me:

The ones who turned into vampires looked like they were transforming into animals or monsters.
I don't know why I have always believed vampires were just elegant, dark assassins :P

Boring, waste of time.
Gwi was kinda cool though...
