Likes: Unusual story that involved dying and resurrecting with the use of a big marble-looking object called the Abyss. I was willing to plunge into it obviously. Although there were some holes in the story since the start and left unanswered questions, I found it cute, charming, funny and I admire the effort on the gruesomeness part of the story. Yes, not the usual combination and that’s what made it interesting.

Park Bo Young as Go Se Yun – she was great! Park Bo Young seems to like strong woman roles and what can I say, it suited her very well. It’s also admirable of her to take a role which is actually making fun a bit of her looks.

Ahn Hyo Sup as Cha Min – he really looked so good here! I’ve been comparing his looks from Thirty but Seventeen, he had grown so handsome! I’ve been wondering if he had plastic surgery but I think not, just maybe a bit made up in this drama. His Cha Min role was a more mature one which he also delivered well.

The chemistry. This is one of the points that I extra like in this drama. Never mind the hollowness of the story when the leads had an amazing chemistry. Park Bo Young is for sure older than Ahn Hyo Sup but that didn’t affect the spark. It was having lots of sparks in fact!

The kissing scenes. And because of that chemistry, the kissing scenes were cute and awesome! It was never awkward.

The villain. I thought Oh Young Chul was brilliant! The first episodes were interesting because of him.

Supporting couple. Detective Park Dong Chul and Lawyer Lee Mi Do cheesy scenes were ice breakers. I love this couple! They were always there for our top leads.



The OST. I especially love Shalalalala. Funny scenes normally has this as background music. Fallin and Into the Abyss are also great to listen to.

The Ending. This had my tears flowing, it better be a happy ending. And I think they heard me.

Dislikes: The second to the last episode was quite cheesy but still bearable to watch.

Hae Jin’s screaming was really irritating.

Seo Ji Uk was sill lacking as villain.

Shameless ad placement. Hello Tous and Dyson.

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)
