The LONG PILL:

This is not your typical historical kdrama which usually contains a serious vibe. It’s a show which was surprisingly fun and had a great comedy. Every episode will thoroughly entertain you and makes you laugh nonstop, even during the intense scenes. Such a stress buster! You’ll rarely find a unique historical drama injected with a time travel twist that added witty humor to the story. The screenplay is intriguing and the actors did a great job holding the pace of the story. It doesn’t have any dull moments at all. The blending and transition of the historical and modern era were smooth and neatly done. Hats off to Shin Hye Sun for her fantastic portrayal of a male character in the body of a female (Jang Bong-Hwa). She ate it up and left no crumbs! Her confused expressions were all on point, turning her jokes so original and extremely hilarious. This is seriously one of the best and funny historical dramas that demand a rewatch!
Hard Pill to Swallow
You’ll need to be patient for a few more episodes before really being into it. It’s a slow start, but it gets REALLY better as the story progresses. It may be ended a bit abruptly with no proper closure for the characters, but there are some refreshing developments with the plot that you’ll never expect. I just wish that there were some scenes where the protagonist explores what it’s like being in a new female body along with his struggle to keep his real identity.
