[+ 822, – 28] Honestly I think the writer was trying to just mess with the viewers because so many people were sure Junghwan was going to be the husband and in the process went too far trying to mislead them.
[+ 964, – 277] Hyeri’s personally just fit the character at a young age…she wasn’t good at acting. Her acting today was awful and the story was bad too…
[+ 873, – 186] I think Hyeri just fits the high school student role so well whereas her acting as an adult still seems a little off.
