First two episodes gave me a good impression though I do have to say that it feels like...tale as old as time. Yup, something that you've definitely seen in kdrama before. Might be too early to say this so I'll give it a few more episodes. I want to watch something with Jo Boa that I will really like and it's been a while since I watched a series with Kim Bum.
