My personal thoughts
This is kinda repetitive… So far, the plot description isn’t intriguing aside from the fact that the leading man isn’t rich. I don’t know what to make of the bright female character that has been through rough shit but remains bright. I mean, I’ve seen similar characters with the same description countless times already. This is also not the first time Go Ara played such a character, albeit in a different setting.
Go Ara projects are hits or misses to me, sometimes she picks well, other times it feels like she’s just settling for an average script.
Lee Jae Wook, on the other hand, has made interesting choices thus far. I didn’t like his last project with Park Min Young, more on that here, but I like how she portrays his characters and brings a certain charm to them.
It’ll be interesting to see how this turns out, hope its not just another rom-com.
