Things come to a satisfactory end, nothing out of extraordinary happens in the last episode. The second part of the episode was forced and has nothing meaningful to add to the series except the conversation between Se-Ho and his mother.
I found the whole series to be good but nothing special. The story was alright, the revenge part started too late and finished too quickly for my liking. Acting wise no complaints, everyone performed well. The young students were great as well. For me, the cast was the main selling point of the drama so if you don’t like the cast you are not going to enjoy the drama as well. I would rate the whole series between 2.5 to 3 out of 5, good watch enjoyable but doesn’t have that X-Factor to grab your heart.
I enjoyed doing the recaps of the series I hope you guys enjoyed them as well.
Next Mon-Tue drama I will be recapping from either Haechi or Item, let me know which one you prefer.
