Thoughts: This drama is pure love and perfection! The anticipation was worth it. It has a lovely mix of everything and does not allow one aspect to overpower the other. It’s definitely enjoyable as I found myself fully invested immediately. I was grinning with the wonderful chemistry between the leads and was biting my nails with all the suspense with the gunman assassination. The seamless transition between these two emotions has to be attributed to the deft direction and editing. The characters are all wonderful and memorable. It helps that the acting elevates how interesting they are more. It was a light watch but at the same time, there’s just so much content you can talk about later on. It’s great how it doesn’t rely on cheap machinations to move the plot. Everything is interconnected and leaves room for more to come. Ahhhh, I want to see the next episode already. Now if only there were more episodes in a week.
Initial Rating: 10/10
