COMMENTS

This is a much better episode than episode 2. Park Hae Jin has a great expression at how he turns warm and cold just by a wink. Moreover, he is one of a kind of hero who helps others behind their back: he helps Jae Woo out of SangCheol so that Sangcheol can stand up for himself, he helps Seol find out who cancelled her registration, he helps Jooyeon to fix her wrongs… He is not alike many main man characters in other idols films: gets involve in any matters that the main female character has, helps her out of bad guys, go save her right away. Jung helps her in the way, in my opinion, more like reality. You know, life sometimes cannot be like films.
What I like the most about this drama is: every situation is relatable and it makes me feel curious in every time I watch it. The actors and actresses are unique. Kim Go Eun has done the best of her and she is talented. She is unique and she’s not like any cutie cookie actress nowadays, she is unique, like I’ve said, she has her own style of acting and her own beauty.
Finally, I’m quiet curious about the relationship between Jung, Inho and Inha. Like I’ve said, this drama makes me curious and I want to see the next episode right away.
