Genre: Workplace / Comedy

N0 of eps: 20          Release date: 17 Oct 2014

Rating: ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣   It’s really well made so don’t let my rating stop you.

Recommended: If you like character development, workplace dramas or Yim Si-wan

Reasons for watching: Hot actors, high viewership, sounded interesting enough

Reasons to keep watching: Yim Si-wan. Got bored at episode 8 or so

Re-watch it: Pending. Mmm…probably not because there will be other things to watch

Gush time: I originally wanted to watch this because I saw Yim Si-wan’s picture and thought mmm cute and that feeling has only increased. He’s so cute.

The characters’ development and interactions were really good. The most important part of any story!

How hilarious are those poses

Rant time: I thought it would focus more on how baduk helps him with his work but it’s hardly brought up. I started to lose interest at episode 5.

Conclusion: It had an 8.4% rating for a cable drama [1% is considered successful] so I thought it would be amazing. My hopes were too high I suppose. There was nothing really wrong with it except the story became a tad boring. I’ll continue watching someday. But Yim Si-wan is indeed very cute!
