Our Temp Opinion
I am not that much interested in this drama, due to the genre which is not common and rather boring for me. I try to hold myself and start to watch the first episode. AND finally !!! One laugh after another comes up during the time I watch the interaction between cast. TBH the series is boring, the storyline for the first two episode is predictable but the interaction between the cast saved the title. Proceed with cautious guys !
