    Eve Says:

    It is a really enjoyable drama. I was hooked on it all the way to the end. Yoon Na Young character was growing on me. Excellent acting. I love her! Overall a very exciting, logical flow of plots uncovering the workings of a chaebol empire. The synopsis was not accurate in describing Yoon Na Young. Good job to the cast! More such shows please! Hopefully a continuing series. Ms Shin, great acting. Bring on more!
