"#Lovely, and dare I say #cRaZy good? … This show takes a deep dive into #mentalillness, and the leading female’s character is extremely selfish, arrogant, and rude… I mostly wanted to hate her, but, as a whole, this #Kdrama was very good, and there are parts to this story I really loved. #fairytale"
"This drama was funnier than I expected! It also had a lot of sentimental moments, not necessarily enough to make you cry, but enough to pull at your heart strings. I felt like the relationships/people were also rather wholesome and cute. This show did a good job with surprising me as a viewer, and the end wrapped up really well and not rushed at all. Loved the chemistry between the actors, definitely would recommend, especially for those who like fairytales and darker perspectives!"
"This is one of my favorite K-Dramas.✨ The storyline, suspense, character development, humor, and psychological elements combine to create a profound series. The elements of people pleasing, guilt, responsibility, feelings of obligation, trauma, and vulnerability in healing were so well done. ✨ 5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Keep reading for more commentary but with a few spoilers******** ************************************ *********** I felt that the characters perfectly represented how boundaries and communication styles can go in either direction. Both characters started out on one extreme side, passive with no boundaries and doing everything for others vs high boundaries to wall people out and remain isolated from others due to trauma and harm from childhood. The way they both influenced each other to find the middle ground made me so happy. I love this series. "
"If you are going to watch a K-Drama this year, watch this one. It’s tragic, heartbreaking, loving. Just a wonderful show: "
"One of the most well-thought and purposeful kdramas I have ever seen. The message behind this drama truly is beautiful, and the development in all the characters fits the theme perfectly. The acting is phenomenal, especially Oh Jung-se. He truly depicts his character accurately and it’s amazing to watch."
"one of the most poignant portrayals of growth and healing your inner child i’ve seen. there are themes of found family, cutting ties with toxic family, grief, finding yourself and putting yourself first. i love that the main characters are all like 30+ so it feels more mature. touches on other important, emotional issues like childhood trauma, abuse and neglect quite well. took the spot for best kdrama i’ve ever watched, easily. "
"I like how the main characters build their own family."
