K-drama Feels:
  • Interesting plot but the biggest flaw of the story is giving out way too many golden spoon. It kind of reduced the importance of an otherwise powerful selling point.
  • Golden Spoon has managed to convey the rich versus poor comparison very well, albeit, they showed it in a way that poor is synonymous with good and rich is synonymous with evil.
  • Great acting. The characters were really well made and you can instantly tell that they have so much chemistry together.
  • The beginning of the series was well done, but after the series came to the middle parts, it started to be processed slowly.
  • Even though there were times that I didn’t actually like how the story goes but I did enjoy the whole series.
  • If you love fantasy you will like this.
  • The series beautifully portrayed a poetic message about life — that everything comes with a price, yet money is not everything.

 

My Rating – 8.5/10 (Is it perfect? NO, but it was very good.)
