Transferring this short review from my FB archive after Paulo Coelho posted about this in twitter.
I watched and get enamored by this kdrama when the trend was on Crash Landing on You (starring Hyun Bin and Son Yejin),
This show is delicately underrated, I tell you. Honestly, I wouldn’t have given this show a second glance if I wasn’t even a Ma-aena (Manila-based IU fandom).
The whole ambience of the show is brooding and borderline melancholic and I wasn’t in the mood for brood that time. Of course, never judge a show by it’s cover and trailers. I’ve never seen a show that feel so real, heartwarming and had amplified compassion, empathy, sympathy and a lot of shit that this world should live by for the humanity. This show didn’t have the typical cliche. Far from it.
The story feels so raw and well-written. The cinematography is art itself. The characters are justified, intricate relationships between the characters and the actors gave justice to their roles. The whole show let me put everything in perspective and you may call me OA but watching this is such a fulfillment.
I still cry for Ji-an’s grandmother to be honest. It was such a great great story Must watch.
