Why You Should Watch This?
I watched it because of the drama’s trailer. It showed elements of the supernatural world and as someone inclined to this genre, I got pulled in. I felt the romance but also felt sad at the same time because the Doom character was a tough role but Seo In-Guk pulled it off with much greatness that I fell for him willfully. The way Bo-Young handled her role was mind-blowing. Watching it made me feel like things were happening in front of me as I could feel all the emotions. Many parts of this drama also made me realize that living in the moment is really important.
Unlike most dramas, this drama does not have a second lead but it does have a second couple and they are given enough screen time for us to start shipping and we cannot help but fall in love with Lee Soo-Hyuk.
Also, look out for Lee Soo-Hyuk as he spells the word ‘MANNER’. This one scene took over the internet and many loved his role as a second couple lead.
If you are crazy for Korean dramas which is a combination of romance and supernatural things, then this is for you and If you love dramas with a suspense that blow up in the end, you must watch this because it’s going to take your heart to another world.
