The LONG PILL:

It was wonderful to see Nam Ji Hyun return to do another bright and cheery historical role. You can’t help but to love Do Kyung Soo as Crown Prince, Lee Yool. He brings something so refreshing, naive, and fun to the role. And not to mention, FUNNY. Yes, he’s surprisingly funny. Call me a stalker, if you must, but I stan SO hard for young Jung Ji-Hoon. He’s dynamic. He’s always been dynamic. The same way I use to follow almost any movie that a young Kim Yoo Jung was in, I find myself drawn to Ji-Hoon’s roles. He gives it everything he has, and leaves nothing wanting.
Hard Pill to Swallow
I would have loved to see Nam Ji-Hyun’s intensity match D.O.’s. I totally believed him as a Crown Prince, through and through, but sometimes lost the intensity in Nam Ji-hyun’s brightness.
