Likes: I definitely love the main story of Lee Soo Yeon and Han Yeo Reum. How they met the first time, how rough was the beginning when they started working together, how they fell in love, how they struggled with their relationship and how they got through the hard times. The chemistry is top with these two. They suddenly made Incheon Airport a romantic place (just like Namsan Tower).

The top leads are great! Lee Je Hoon is a brilliant actor (not just handsome but he can really act). I love his role here… seemingly awkward to the people around him and also anxious of any commitment but that super strength he got from the machine made him look like Iron Man! He did so well in this role. As for Chae Soo Bin, she’s always the bubbly girl, a very good support to LJH’s role. Best is the chemistry of these two!

Although it’s a clear big ad placement for the Incheon Airport, it’s  nice to see how it functions everyday and to see which team is responsible for which job. The sub-stories might be made-up but it’s like that in real life… every sector and every person has a story to tell.

Every episode has a short side story which is really a good addition to the main one. Each side story normally ends every episode so there’s always a new one to look forward to. They definitely keep you interested.

I love the supporting love story of the security couple. I found these two so cute together! A spin-off perhaps?

Kim Ji Soo still looks great for her age! She has this cute face but her roles are always the serious ones just like this one. She was also the best dressed in this drama, always looking elegant in her office outfits!

Lee Dong Gun still looks handsome! His height is always a plus. It’s good to see him take a good supporting role where he can show off his acting talent rather than force himself in a lead role which is not so challenging.

The ending with epilogue! One year later… I love this kind of ending. Somehow whatever problem existing gets solved after a year or two or even 5.




Dislikes: Did I miss something or what? Did Han Yeo Reum’s dad die? It wasn’t clear for a role which was important for both leads.

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)
