First of, I don't like the shade of lipgloss that IU's using in these episodes hahaha I just had to get that out. Yeo Jin Goo is such a good actor and he's making my heart melt!

I *screamed* when I saw IU's silver nails in ep 3. So so so good.

It's a Hong Sisters drama so it's going to sputter within the next two weeks but I can already tell I'm in this one until the bitter end...

hahahaha you know Hong Sisters drama so well! And same, I'm gonna be here til the end!
dafairyness 24th-Jul-2019 12:16 am (UTC)
haha yeah, this isn't my first Hong Sisters rodeo.

Many people are not very fond of their dramas but I'm generally OK with them. For as long as I'm entertained, I stay and watch =) Plus Yeo Jin Goo is sooooooo good! He's become such a great actor.
dafairyness 24th-Jul-2019 01:51 am (UTC)
Same. Their stuff generally ends up not being very good (I'm looking at you, Big) but they're such huge drama fans themselves that it almost feels like they're writing for each other (lbr you're beautiful is terribad but it's also funny). I can't hate.

He's become so good! I just want him to go to the military now so we can have his drama comeback sooner. Maybe with Park Boyoung.
babyjenkski 24th-Jul-2019 02:16 am (UTC)
Going to the military early on was what Yoo Seung Ho did. I'm not sure if it worked well for him. His works after coming back are half bad, half good. I mean...Remember and Emperor: Owner of the Mask were really good but did not take in the expected high ratings. His other kdramas were just ok. He and Yeo Jin Goo have similar careers having started as child actors and eventually getting the lead roles.

If Yeo Jin Goo goes to the military early, all we can do is hope for the best and wish that his comeback dramas or movies will be good.

That's such a cute take!!
juhli 24th-Jul-2019 03:31 pm (UTC)
haha, this is so true. everyone likes it but also no one is expecting this quality to go on till the end
juhli 24th-Jul-2019 03:36 pm (UTC)
soooo...i already like this drama better than every Hong sisters drama since Masters Sun...but am still not sure if i like like it? I feel like I'm mainly watching for the world building (the thing Hong sisters excel at) and IU's gorgeousness. All the looks she's been sporting in this drama have been a feast for my eyes, I don't wanna look away. Also, her cool or defiant look has so much more depth than in Producer, she grew so much as an actress.

Also, i dig the gender reversal so much!!! I'm hoping the Hong Sisters will keep it going like this (hoping, but not expecting)

Ohhhh yeah IU's acting here is a lot better than in any of her previous dramas that I've seen. I also like the back story they're showing us. Like woah....IU's character has been waiting for that guy for centuries! And curious to see if he's reincarnated as Yeo Jin Goo's character.
juhli 25th-Jul-2019 02:00 pm (UTC)
I wouldnt be mad if the backstory was its own drama tbh haha
