Okay, I stopped watching at episode three and will probably revert once it’s completed. I am not a big fan of Nam Joo Hyuk. Please don’t get me wrong, he’s an amazing actor and he’s also a cutie. Pero just like everything else, naa ra juy uban na dili nimo bet regardless of how cute and amazing they are as an actor or actress. This is my first Kim Tae Ri series. For the first three episodes, so far so good. Bagay niya ang character and I like her humor and clumsiness. I will update this post once I’ve watched all the episodes.
