Likes: 3 of my favorites korean actors are here: YEH, Yoochun, Yoo Seung Ho!
I love the beginning… the introduction of the characters, the details and the superb acting of the child actors! It was very sincere. I could fell the sadness and the pain.
That kissing scene on the road! It was just beautiful! It wasn’t relevant though. I don’t know why they were in the middle of the road. Anyway, it was beautiful!
The wedding scene! It was a bit cheesy but well I’m a sucker for wedding scenes!
The ending! Somehow I expected this scene to happen. We go back to the time when they were young and Han Jung Woo returned the yellow umbrella and yes his young uncle was with him, even introduced him to Su Yeon. If everything went like that in the past, there wouldn’t have been suffering and pain, everyone would have been happy. But well, we won’t have this drama either :).
Dislikes: It was just bad story telling. I was so bored because there was barely nothing I don’t know. Please reveal the secrets like bombs!
Why’s everyone could just enter that huge house of Harry Borrison. The giant gate and the secret room just made no sense.
Yoochun oppa, the character Crazy Rabbit is not just for you! Please say no next time.
Talking of Crazy Rabbit character, why was it not introduced properly like you know show how great he is in solving cases and catching criminals. Just a short scene with actions and everything so we, the viewers have better understanding why other characters talk highly of Crazy Rabbit. What I remember when Crazy Rabbit appeared for the first time, he was drunk and singing out of tune in a karaoke bar! Total Fail.
Keeping the character of Kang Hyung Joon’s mom almost to the end without an effect to the story was just a waste. I expected she would still be relevant. Also the character of Kim Eun Jo, the daughter of Detective Kim who died earlier in the story, I thought there was still something from her character since I saw her as one of the leading actors as shown in the promotional photos.
And yeah, Han Tae Jun, father of Han Jung Woo, supposed to be the root of all evil here, what was that stupid move in the end, kidnapping Su Yeon that just got you imprisoned. Ah frustrating. And not to forget, the actor playing Han Tae Jun was just lacking some acting skills, sorry. Not scary and villain enough.
