    I have strongly mixed feelings about this drama. I watched it for the first time almost ten years ago, as a high-schooler, and I remember absolutely loving it. However now, as an adult, I'm not so sure anymore. There are cute and comedic moments in this drama, and the idea of a modern-time Korean monarchy is intriguing. The lead couple finds themselves under unfortunate circumstances, and both go through love triangles. Yet no matter what goes on in a person's life, it is not, under any circumstances, an excuse for some of the behaviors that go on in the drama: the female lead's requests are constantly being ignored and glossed over (no seriously means no!); she is grabbed and man-handled every single time; she is emotionally manipulated and the list goes on. I had a really hard time watching this drama a second time around. I honestly did not remember it that way. Many things here are simply NOT okay, and should not be viewed as anything remotely romantic, even if it's what we've been raised to believe.

    The first thought I had about this drama was: "Did I accidently open Hell's Kitchen?" And then Sun Gyun smiled and I melted, haha. Remembering his character from Coffee Prince, I never thought that he could be this charismatic and romantic, and sometimes downright mean, but there you have it :) His chemistry with Hyo Jin is amazing, and both of their incredible acting skills really shine through. All of the support cast has their own developing mini-plots and they all come together in a natural way. All 20 episodes ended interestingly and the pace was just right. If you are looking for a romance drama which incorporates lots of food and good humor, this is just for you! (This is defiantly a new favorite ^_^).

    I'm not sure how many times I've watched this drama already, but it's amazing each and every time. EVERYTHING works well here, and is very believable. The chemistry between the main couple is very much real and super-hot (although I was really sad to learn, albeit super late, that they have broken up a long while ago). Watch it! The time jumps are well done, the butterfly effect is present in the drama and nothing is solved Deus ex machina. Everything is explained perfectly well. Why are you still here?! Go watch it!
