This show is amazing. You don’t want to miss it. Acting/ Cast- The main highlight of the show is it’s actors. All of them an amazing job especially Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won. Lee Joon Gi as usual aces his role effortlessly. He emotes everything so perfectly that it captivates you to the scene. He has portrayed extremes of emotions in a single person in this show and he did this very convincingly. The control he has on his expressions and body language is marvellous. Those subtle changes he showed were beyond someone’s imagination.
Moon Chae Won was a really compatible female lead for the show. Her portrayal of Cha Ji Won is what the script demands. Since, there were not many dynamics of her character explored I was a bit disappointed. Nevertheless the actor filled Cha Ji Won’s shoes pretty well.
Other actors also did a pretty amazing job. Eun Ha is a princess and with her father she has the best scenes of the series.
Screenplay/ Direction- Something I would say that held the show together were these things. Every episode was full of revelations and still there was so much more to offer in further episodes. I kept wondering after each episode that so much is already revealed, how are they going to make it to the end but they never let me down. Till the very end I never found it boring. Screenplay let me know, how most clichés can be turned into a masterpiece and the director made me understand how many dynamics of the emotions a character can have.
Story/ Plot- It is quite interesting. However there were a few loopholes according to me. It would have been better to cover them up but still, they were something you can ignore. Plot is unusual, as contradictory to the synopsis.
He does have a past but you can never guess it from the beginning until it is revealed. You may make a few hits but the main catch of the past is very unusual.
It is a rollercoaster ride that one may not want to miss. I am sad, it ended. All in all it’s a must watch.
