**Haters gonna hate** ==I doesn't matter how much hate this drama received, in a year where most of K-dramas fell flat forgetable at least this one is memorable for good or for bad!== [spoiler] While the plot obviously has some troubles to wrapped up the story at least all the cast was good, remember actor can't really make changes on the story so it's not their fault.The only thing I was dying for was to make Yongsan a queer characters, we didn't see much of him and honestly he suffers one of the worst parts in the story, the way writter handle his brother's death was so bad and pointless. And finally and something personal, I had my issues with Dosan at first but I'm a sucker for unconditional love on fiction so at the end I love him.[/spoiler] Would I reccommend this to someone? Probably not unless they're fans of Suzy or Nam Joohyuk Will this be the best K-drama of the year? Definitely not but easily one of the best 15. My score: 7.6/10

It started off strong and had lots of potential, but it kinda came off as a boring story with a boring main couple, disguised as interesting with beautiful actors/actresses and beautiful cinematography (and I happen to love Nam Joo-Hyuk because of _Weightlifting Fairy_). The only subplots I liked were Ji-Pyeong & grandma’s, as well as Chul-san & Sa-ha’s. [spoiler]Also, the ending was the crappiest, most rushed and unsatisfying ending I’ve seen in a long time. YoU diD ThIs fOr WhaT?[/spoiler]

This drama was interesting at first and all but when I reached the 13th episode I understood why all my kdrama friends were insulting it. The drama is solely focused on the love story that they didn't really show us much scenes [spoiler]on how Dalmi developed herself and how she grew the business along side her sister or even how dalmi's relationship with both her mother and sister improved greatly.[/spoiler] If your a person who likes love stories and not into the side stories, give this drama a watch.

I’ve seen like 10 kdramas at most.. and I’m quite satisfied with this one. For me, as for software engineer, it was impressive to see many tech stuff which was so true. Every technical term, every stuff that happened on computer screen was not bullshit, it was the way it is in real life. Althoug More
