    I’m not a fan of the main female cast members. SSK’s acting is too emotionless for me, she is beautiful no question there but she doesn’t express her emotions well with her facial expressions. I will try to watch this for male actors who are in it but I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish it. Please prove me wrong female cast and make an awesome drama.

    The promo shots remind me of the aquarium scene from Romeo & Juliet movie with Leonardo DiCaprio.

    I haven’t read the manhwa before, but the original manhwa set in a historical time if i’m not mistaken? At first i’ve been waiting this drama coz good review for the manhwa.
    Finger crossed for this drama. Maybe the production crew want to make something different, like those Romeo n Juliet set in modern day.

    I’m gonna watch this drama mainly because of NJH even though I really really really don’t like SSK. Her acting is so bad. Every time I heard she got the lead female role with great actors, I’ll pray that she’ll improve her acting skills, but never. But still, let’s just hope she won’t ruin this drama as how she ruined When A Man Loves, Iron Man and Sensory Couple for me.

    i love the manga it’s very good and i think the historical set up is also it’s attractive point..but as i see the drama in modern set up i am hoping they haven;t spoil the whole story and it’s no point if they cann’t satisfy the viewers..moreover by changing the whole set up from it’s original it’s just making us curious more…i always hoped one day they make the drama of this manga and now finally it came true but am expecting alot so kind of sad too please don’t make the drama to be flop …hope it is exciting

    Moon Chae Won acts better than SSK.

    Lisa Says:

    I know a lot of people would prefer Moon Chae Won as she can act way better than SSK. But she declined the offer and chose to act in Criminal Minds drama along with Lee Jun Ki which I think she made a right choice. Though I don’t like SSK’s acting, but I can’t imagine MCW to be pair with NJH, the age gap would be so obvious as MCW has a mature feature.

    N Says:

    Aw, I think Moon Chae Won is more suitable than Shin Se Kyung. But I’m still excited for this. 😀

    I see people who dont like shin se kyung’s acting. Well, Lee Min Ho’s acting is bad as well but people doesnt see that.

    I always support Shin Se Kyung dramas, I love her, she has a pure and clean image, the girl who everyone want to be married.

    Popdatbubble Says:

    I absolutely LOVE the cast members!!! Every single one of them! They all fit the characters really well in my opinion, maybe just the fact that So Ah is supposed to be more emotionless and more dark, but nevertheless I love SSK!
