Yes, we have seen the premiere – they both are simply adorable!! 16 episodes will be a challenge but they have an amazing chemistry. Only one setback for me – if this will be similar to The Extraordinary Attorney Woo in the structure, i.e. – each episode has one legal process – I’ll get bored, because we just have had so many legal stories in The Extraordinary Attorney Woo, I think I have had my share of legal courtroom action for a while. I hope it will be more about them, their story, their romance.
Posting an update after the 2nd episode….. ah, what a disappointment already…I really really dislike when the writers portray a hysterical woman.. Why? Why did they have to do it? I liked the character of Kim Yu Ri in the first episode- passionate, smart, funny. What did they do to her in the 2nd episode? That scene in the cafe when she was interviewing somebody to hire in order to help her with the cafe – she was screaming at Kim Jung Ho like a crazy, hysterical, violent woman. I really dislike when they portray women in this way. To give a man a reason to say to us one more time: “Why are you so hysterical, do you have your period.?” What a turn off for me. Even if I like the acting of Lee Seung Gi and wanted to continue watching- now I really do not know if I want to continue. Also – too many clichés – the love triangle with the doctor, the jealousy, the guilt..this is all so old… I am disappointed..
