Places To Watch:


Episode Count:



To be honest, I almost quit this drama during the first episode. But because of my love for the two leads, Kim Yoo Jung (Saet Bull) and Ji Chang Wook (Dae-Hyun) I made myself push through… and I’m really glad I did. Kim Yoo Jung is AWESOME! It’s so great to see her all grown up and kicking butt.
Hard Pill to Swallow
WARNING: You must give the first episode at least 30 minutes before switching it off. And you must give the drama itself until the end of the 3rd episode before making a decision. It starts off a bit all over the place and may have you questioning whether you should continue or not. You should. Remember, this series is based on a Webtoon and can, at times, get a little fantastical. The first few episodes can find you a bit lost in the mix. because of the animated nature. So it takes a bit longer to get to the heart of the matter.
