K-drama Feels:
  • The series portrays the journey of the main character, highlighting her resilience and strength amidst challenging circumstances.
  • The beginning is strong and extremely funny.
  • The first 10 episodes were so good but then… I don’t know what happened but last few episodes bored me.
  • This had a lot of potential, and is not that’s bad, is just a pity, they could have done better.
  • The ending was good. It was just what was needed to conclude the series.
  • With so many heavily plotted K-dramas out there, it’s nice to have something lighthearted, with a good balance of drama to watch.

My Rating – 8.0/10 (It wasn’t great, it wasn’t horrible, it was just ok.)
