K-drama Feels:
  • The series offers a unique blend of fantasy, romance, and comedy that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy.
  • This drama has a strong start and is really interesting in the beginning. Until the curse was lifted up it was fun and lighthearted as I expected it to be.
  • The plot can be predictable and the pacing can be a bit uneven, with some episodes dragging and others rushing through developments.
  • The story can feel a little slow at times, especially in the middle episodes.
  • The characters were likeable and the main couple was enjoyable.
  • Watch it if: You love cute romances, fantasy elements, and lighthearted humor.
  • Skip it if: You crave complex plots and deep character development.
  • This drama has some good parts some cringe, some annoying elements, some fun, some more or less predictable twist.
  • Overall, the story was not that bad but the storytelling made it kind of worse.
