Story: Again the best part of the story was its simplicity just like Romance is a Bonus Book. It doesn’t have many evil villains other than a short arc of an ex-stalker (1 and a half episode long). The biggest proof of the simplicity of the story is that there is no love triangle involving the leading couple. Which tends to be the main focal point of most of the Korean dramas. This could have an opposite effect on some audiences as they may have wanted more spice in the story.
Cast: The cast was amazing, I am not a big fan of Yoo In-Na but she was good as well. Lee Dong-Wook was amazing with his down to earth, simple minded by the book type character. You could feel and see the innocence on his face when he was acting. The two CEO cousins and the manager were really funny as well. I felt Sang-Woo was underused and didn’t like the actress (she is the only exception) played the character of Yeo-Reum that much. The other love story of Moon-Hee and Yoon-Hyuk was really enjoyable. My only issue with casting was the absence of a cameo by the comedian Jo Se-Ho (Happy Together, infinity Challenge).
I personally really enjoyed the show and hope you guys did as well. And if you haven’t seen it yet I would highly recommend it, you guys. Especially if you enjoyed the leading couple in the GOBLIN.
