Gwaenchanhah, Sarangiya (original title)

Stars: Gong Hyo Jin, Jo In Sung, Do Kyung Soo, Sung Dong Il

A love story between a psychiatrist and an author who had schizophrenia.

★★★☆☆

Obviously, nag-marathon ako ng mga drama ni Gong Hyo Jin. Ang ganda ng start nito, promising. Maganda din ang soundtracks. Ang ganda ng settings, ng quality ng shots, ng aesthetics in general. Pero like any other k-drama, parang meron silang mundong umiikot lang sa kanila kung saan (halos) halat sila may issues na related sa theme ng drama (syempre). At bakit lagi na lang may annoying quality ang character ni unnie Hyo Jin wae wae wae.

★★★☆☆

Gist: Sobrang pogi at talino kasi ng oraboni ni female lead kaya ginawa ni princess lahat para mapangasawa sya kaya inalay sya sa black magic ritual para patayin si female lead para hindi siya ang maging reyna. Nagkagulo sila dahil.sa pogi.
