Likes: I love the story! I enjoyed every single episode of it! There was a good balance of comedy, romance and drama.
I love the title Queen In Hyun’s Man. It didn’t make much sense in the beginning but it definitely did in the end. Well done!
I love the characters and the actors who gave life to them. First I wasn’t so sure with a scholar and actress tandem but it was just well done that the chemistry between the 2 was undeniably strong since the beginning of the drama.
Lots of kissing scenes! That’s why I love Yoo In Na’s character, she would always find a way to kiss him :). So sweet!
The never ending interrogation by the actress’ assistant / manager about Gim Boong Do’s background. I just thought that was funny. They even did it again in the epilogue.
And I love the ending! Not because of the kissing scene 😉 but how they close the story without being dependent to that talisman (though it was really useful at the start). It was just fate! It was fate that she was asked to narrate that documentary that made her remember things about him and made her call him which connect her to him just before he was about to die and so on and so forth… And yeah I’ll just include the last kiss :).
Dislikes: I really like that Gisaeng who gave Gim Boong Do the talisman so I was so sad that she had to die like that. She was so heartbroken already not to have him. Aside from that, it’s hard to think of something I dislike.
