IMO The fact that the ratings rose from 2% to 20%+ is actually a good way to know its good.

The drama had no star power/major promotions, and pple started watching it cos of 'word of mouth' of how good it was.

I've finished it & it honestly was good. I fell in love with the acting of almost all the cast & the production & story crew did a good job telling the story. Would highly recommend. :)

a bit surprising that the ratings increase was so little from the last episode to the finale. usually it is higher.


anyways, superb ratings

Kim Seo-hyung is such a good actress, she was great in temptation of wife (greatest rage ever) too. Last ep was too cheesy for me but I guess they had to change it at the very last second since the script was leaked!

Unfortunately, they overdone the happy end, it was too sugary and not realistic enough. Anyways it was still the best K-drama I've ever watched.
