That was ok, not counting the massive loopholes….

I think neither SBS nor screenwriter Kim Sun-Ok anticipated the lack of interest in the 2nd season of this drama. I was surprised by how low the ratings had been at times.

I kinda expected people to be more critical of her writing this time, but not to this degree. I was genuinely surprised that even international fans had issues across the board with the drama’s writing.

The issues this drama has with its writing are very similar to the issues Penthouse had. But that drama had a huge fanbase and despite declining quality, the ship had sailed, and a lot of people had invested a lot of time into the initial hype that they wanted to see it through. Not including those who thought it was great.

I wonder whether the response to this drama will make her re-think her writing or not. It’ll be very interesting to see how she writes the next project and to what degree it’ll be similar to her last two dramas.

Walking away from this drama, I personally LOVED Lee Yoo-Bi’s performance the most. I was so surprised by how well she commanded her character despite how utterly ridiculous most of the situations were. She really shined in this project. Lee Joon did so well too and Hwang Jung-Eum was genuinely infuriating, she did a good job too.

I feel bad that these amazing actors didn’t get to enjoy praise because of how bad the script is.
