    A little crazy and unbelievable but very fun to watch.
    I can’t wait to see how all the “bad guys” who murdered So Moon’s parents get punished.

    I am not that kind of type who will watch an ongoing drama, but SERIOUSLY THIS ONE IS WORTH THE WAIT! This drama is crazy (in a positive way). Once I tuned in, I can’t let go. I am thirst for moooreeee. But, I have to wait patiently every week.

    SEJEONG’S acting is ridiculously amazing. She is indeed a life character!

    This drama is a full package! There are comedy, cool action scenes (a lot of women action scenes), and drama that will also make you burst into tears!

    I remember watching 4 episodes, but cried so many times already. WATCH IT! IT WILL BE THE BEST DECISION YOU HAVE EVER MADE!

  10. 10 : Kiki Says:

    This drama is so good. Definitely one of the best I’ve seen in a while. Perfect casting, love the actor who played Ji Chung Shin(evil guy). The only bad thing I have to say was the final epic fight was a big letdown.it was rather funny. But overall I love this drama and will rewatch it one day.
