Lately I cannot deny how new Korean drama’s are failing to interest me. They are  bland, the story lines have no real concept and don’t even make me start on all the idols acting.  So am really happy I found this.

When I first read the synopsis of this drama I thought to myself, My kind of cheesy storyline! I love fantasy style stories and as silly as this storyline sounds it proved to be quite interesting and got me addicted straightway.

I have watched 7 episodes so far and it has not disappointed me yet. The storyline is quite captivating. From reading the synopsis you would think it would be quite straight forward because everyone is suppose to have 3 people who would cry genuine tears for you right? But no it seems it really is  not that simple…

I really like the storyline, they have developed the whole plot so well and it just keeps getting better. Its all so different and I hope in the future there will be more fantasy style Korean dramas like Secret Garden and 49 days.

Like in most dramas I do believe that the acting is what makes the drama fabulous. First you have the two main girls. I personally think both of them are  main characters as they play a very important role. Their character’s influence each other. Nam Gyu Ri plays Shin Ji Hyun, the ghost who goes in Song Yi Kyung played by Lee Yo Won. Personally I love both of these two right now, they are my favoriteThey just play their characters so well.The other female character would be Shin In Jung played by Seo Ji Hye. The three main hot male leads is played by Jo Hyeon Jae as Han Kang ,Bae Su-bin as Kang Min and  Jung Il Woo as scheduler (so hot >_< )  They all just act flawlessly.

So far the only flaws I get from this drama is that Firstly the plot seems to drag a teeny bit in certain episodes.  As viewers there is also certain aspects of each character that we still do not know. It can leave us a bit confused. When they decide to let us know background information about the characters we get to know in an quite annoying form, Flashbacks. There is nothing I hate more then flashbacks. =_=

Click on Show if you have watched 7 episodes ^^ Or if you want to know some spoilers O_O


Besides those few flaws I am simply addicted to this dramas and I do think its something you should try to watch ^^
