Likes: I think what made me really watch this show was the promising cast. Just taking a look at the big names, we’ve got Kim Go Eun, Nam Ji Hyun, Wi Ha Joon and Uhm Ki Joon as main cast. Such a feast for a kdrama fan who’d seen these faces a number of times in the past. Of course, I had high expectations. Did it really hit the mark? That, I’ll talk about later in the bottom.
So, let’s take a look at the big names and their roles…
Kim Go Eun as Oh In Joo – I know she’s a great actress, but her role her kind of annoyed me a bit. She was so gullible. I wouldn’t say, stupid, but simply and annoyingly easy to get convinced. Anyway, Kim Go Eun did so well in portraying that.
Nam Ji Hyun as Oh In Kyung – I love In Kyung’s personality! She was tough and brave. She would always stand up to what she believed in and always ready to fight. Nam Ji Hyun’s chemistry with Kang Hoon was also awesome!
Park Ji Hoo as Oh In Hye – I wasn’t a fun of In Hye that much. I don’t like people getting swayed easily with living in mansion. However, I like the actress Park Ji Hoo. She’s a promising young star.
Wi Ha Joon as Choi Do Il – Wi Ha Joon helping Kim Go Eun solved mysteries gave a Squid Game vibe. The forever, mystery revealer! I love seeing him again, although I wished he had more chemistry with Kim Go Eun.
Uhm Ki Joon as Park Jae Sang – the villain role was written all over his face but I was so surprised how it ended with him. What a twist!
Uhm Ji Won as Won Sang Ah – our great villainess, the master puppeteer, the artist. She was so twisted but remain artistic with her ways. Brilliant acting by the lady!
The Story. I was definitely feeling a Squid Game vibe. Psychotic for sure and maybe because Wi Ha Joon was in it 😊. I like the web of mysteries, they were for sure interesting and kept me hooked all throughout. This is of course based on the novel Little Women, so it’s also about sisters who’d gone through difficult times in their lives. It’s a coming of age drama wrapped in psychotic mystery 😉.
The Mystery of the Orchid. I like the importance of the orchid in the show. Not only it was beautiful, but it was representative as well. So once one is not part of the orchid family, he or she becomes a loose orchid, meaning time to die. Of course, the orchid is managed by the main villainess, who’s I think was the star of the show.
The Main Villainess. Of course she was psychotic, but you’ve got to give her that. She was an artist. She wanted to give life to her art. What a twisted mind, but artistic as well.
Singapore with Love! It’s good to see kdrama travelling out again to film. Although, I always associate kdrama with Seoul but it’s good to see other beautiful cities as well. Singapore was of course a great choice. Still wanna visit the place one day!
Cameo Surprise. One of the first episodes had Song Jong Ki cameo! What a treat! And what a great-looking sales person!
Dislikes: I think the cast was excellent, but the story was quite weak. I like the mysterious approach, the puzzles and everything, but so many loose ends. The plot was also quite messy, it was all over the place. Hard to keep up especially with so many characters in the story.
