K-drama Feels:
  • A perfect balance of romance, fantasy, drama, and law.
  • The story is well-paced and engaging. It is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end.
  • The comedy was gold, I wanted more of the love potion comedy and more spells.
  • The sub plots are interesting and kept me interested.
  • Rowoon perfectly embodied Jang Shin Yu in all moods and aspects. He looks so gorgeous in this drama.
  • I just fell in love with Jang Shin Yu, sino ba namang hindi ma-iinlove sa kanya?
  • One aspect of the show that I dislike is their inability to finish the shamanism/curse storyline. Parang yun na yun, magic, nawala na ang sumpa at completely healed na si Shin yu?
  • If you enjoy light fantasy, mystery, and reincarnation dramas, you should give this one a shot.


My Rating – 8.5/10 (Its Rowoon watchable for that alone. But it is also an interesting premise with a nice romance.)
