    Say hello to Im Soo Jung, her first drama after 13 years since her last drama “I’m Sorry, I Love You.” and also heard her rejected two projects before taking this one (2013 SBS “All About My Romance, and 2016-2017 SBS “Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim).

    Hope in a positive one for good result. Also say Hi to Go Kyung Pyo since his last year drama “Jealousy Incarnate” (2016). Hope after this, he avoid “second lead syndrome.”

    The first 10 minutes are very boring and I doubt this drama is better than RDTK.

    There’s no evidence that the guy’s music hurts the people around him. There is evidence that the politics, ambitions and greed of those around the guy, causes misery. So why would the writer resort to putting that narrative in the mouths of the characters, when it is clear to the viewers it’s a fallacy? It diminishes the credibility and appeal of the characters themseves due to their lack of intelligence and humanity towards the main character.

    This is the problem; the songwriter helped his band member friends and the company earn a lot of money. He’s the creator of the product (compositions). They (Crude Play) are essentially the “sales people” and “marketing” while the management (Sole Music) takes care of administering the business. Without the product there is no revenue; no-one gets expensive apartments and drive convertibles.

    Knowing this, you would think they’d feel gratitude towards the one that created the hits. Yet they blame him for their misery. In fact, it was the politics and the greed that almost always ensues where a lot of money is made and fame and prestige are commodities.

    The dude with the red convertible hates. He hates how the others make him feel like he’s not a member of the band. Whoopee-doo. He should get over it. Grouping people together don’t automatically make them close. It’s life. He can always leave and do something else if bromance is his thing. But he needs them and he needs Sole Music.

    He attached himself onto a newbie and made her enter a verbal contract that limits her options to grow by working with other songwriters or producers.

    I’m a korean drama addict, and I know this drama is really good cause I watch it first RAW, and then with subtitle, like I did with Goblin, Jealousy Incarnate, Another Miss Oh, Moon Lovers, etc. Don’t know why rating is not picking up, even though I know it’s Pay TV. The characters are so good, especially Yoo Ah In. And he is such a fashionista! Love the clothes he wears. Wishing them the best! Fighting!

    Hannah Says:

    I don’t know why but I want to know more about what happened in 1930 rather than their current story right now. Han Se Ju’s character is so not my cup of tea.

    dramalady Says:

    Hannah, I agree with you. The script is running too much in circles of the present time. Han’s character does not make audiences like him. In fact, I like Yoo Ah In a lot so it makes me frustrated watching it.

    I love the actors especially Yoo Ah In! I hate the mediocre script that is taking baby steps to build the characters and layout the scenario. Uggh! I really wish they would stop making average dramas that try to have both past and future events, like Siamdang, and fail to present an interesting story in both the past and future scenarios. The foster brother, or is it half brother, went from envious to evil. We know because he throws a cat who wants to play with him. Is this really necessary to make him wicked when being in the shadow of the lead character is more interesting without the wickedness? At least, I had some empathy for him! Now, I can’t stand looking at him. The ghost’s character is like a wet towel, Such a waste. I hope this picks up.

    This is just too dark for me. I guest their previous life is more frustating than the present. Even though i really curious about what was happen in their previous life, i’m afraid to know the truth.
