    Love how this kdrama dove right into the issue at hand and explored the emotions of the parties involved + showed all their backstories. It started strong but became mellow towarda the end. It’s a drama you wouldn’t easily forget.

    I’ve also watched this- the scenes are really intense and breathtaking! Susundan mo talaga yung storya. And I agree that the plot is unpredictable. There lots of twists.

    Siguro, karamihan ayaw nila ng World of Married. Mabigat kasi panoorin. For me, what I liked the most is yung acting, cinematography and effects – grabe. No doubt marami siyang awards. Pangit nga lang yung ending parang bitin for me.
