    Watched the first two episodes. Something missing. I don’t know if it is the script, the casting or the directing. Si Wan gave an awesome performance in Misaeng but in this drama, the characters are not all that interesting for some reason.

    The girl’s father going to such extremes to protect his daughter and his business was an interesting idea in the plot, but a betrothal could have remedied the threat. Given that wasn’t a viable option for reasons not revealed to us, I’m hoping that the rest of the story will keep me interested.
