Another one finished!  Your thoughts, Omona?  It was nice to watch the roles of the chaebol and ordinary person reversed.  Other traditional drama concepts were inverted as well.  Some of the romantic moments at the end of the even episodes were executed well, but day-to-day interactions between the couple couldn’t keep my interests.  I was ok with the casting Hye-kyo and Bo-gum but I just couldn’t cheer for them much.  The supporting cast was incredibly weak. Cuba was wonderfully filmed.  Visiting is now on my must to do list!

I couldn't feel the chemistry between the two, and I think its because they had such strong chemistry with their partners in their last drama that I kept comparing in my head

That's an interesting point.

I'm still not settled on why they didn't click. Acting, age, real life friendship, script...It feels like a missed opportunity and yet I couldn't find anything salvageable about it either.

Just coming to this post to say that I love this hipster/artist-hair on Bogum, makes him look less clean-cut.

I loved it, too. There were so many people hating on it...
