User Reviews

 
Sorry to give a score of 6 to Jisung
28 December 2018 | by madbird-61243See all my reviews

Jisung's acting is as usual superb. The drama offers a role for Jisung to apply his amazing acting skill. But that is the only good point of the drama.

The storyline is too illogical and loose. The plot fails all the efforts Jisung put into the role. It is a total waste of cast.
