My personal thoughts
“The Uncanny Counter” is super fun and in a way a milder version of what I usually see on OCN, I kind of didn’t expect it to do this well but I am happy for it.
I love love everyone’s performance, I think they make a great team and have great chemistry together. With 10 more episodes, I am looking forward to reporting more on its ratings. I am keeping an eye on how it wraps up. The first half review is coming out next week, so keep an eye on the blog.
Jo Byeong Gyu is seriously on his way to becoming one of the hottest Korean actors, he is such a talented actor, he’s come far after working so hard on getting the recognition he deserves. Everyone is doing great, Sejong is so entertaining and a good actress, Yoo Jun Sang is so sexy and funny and Yeom Hye Ran is such a treat and does well holding the team together.
