ThePharma 5Watch Guide!
Best Time To Watch:
Here and There: since there is SO much to take in with this drama, it can feel a bit heavy getting through in a single sitting. It’s probably best for those who have time to take their time and properly digest its beauty, at a slower pace.
The opened minded and patient, KDrama Pro, who ‘s in no rush to binge finish something in a night. This is a great in-between drama to watch while you’re waiting on weekly episodes of new K-series to air.
Although this is one rollercoaster of a ride, love triumphs ultimately. The life and love lessons that came with it moved me enough to watch again!
Cast & Chemistry:
Apart from the two leads, whom we all love and praise, Woo Do-hwan is without a doubt, the show’s breakout star, and ultimate charmer, thanks to his outstanding performance. You will fall in love with his characters, at some point, because he is quite the scene stealer. (The majestic white royal horse, Maximus, is pretty unforgettable too!)
