Hong Ra On later destined to meet Lee Yeong (Park Bo Gum) who is Hyomyeon’s crown prince. During their first meeting Hong Ra On does not know that Lee Yeong is a prince and vice versa Lee Yeong does not know Hong Ra On is not a man. This typical disguised type of plot is going to be taken turn on love relationship between the main couple.

 

Our Temp Opinion

Don’t take this against me, but even before watching the drama I am already feeling discourage with the concept. The only reason I try to watch this drama is because of Park Bo Gum, I like how he portrayed his character in Reply 1988 and was curios to see how capable he is in playing other character. The other mini reason I decided to give this drama a shot is to answer nosy feeling on how will the writer of the scenario pivot the boring and predictable concept toward something interesting during this hallyu wave era.

Up until the first two episode, I am not even amused by the time of watching this series, it’s too cliche for me. I dont see Kim Yoo Jung is *my deepest apology toward all of her fans* quite good in catching up with Park Bo Gum acting performance, several time during the interaction I can see the glimpse of awkwardness during the scene*or maybe I still am can’t move on from Reply 1988*. All in all, I am quite surprised with the story which is well written but a bit disappointed with the chemistry of the cast, hope the next episode will be better. Worth the time guys !
