I don't believe in writing reviews before finishing a drama, but seeing as there are idiots rating 1 star after reading JUST the synopsis I felt I had to rate it, especially since I'm enjoying it as much as I am. For me it's what Perfect Wife should have been. You see actual motivation to cheat, and not for the reasons you'd suspect. You can feel how much the husband and wife love each other despite all they're going through and you can see the tragedy of them decieving each other to prevent them from hurting more. The wife seems irrational at times, but she has a tumor in her head and is suffering from the trauma of dying just like her mother who she watched die. I actually like her and all the characters in the show. It's brought up more serious issues and addressed them more sincerely than I've seen in other dramas. If you want a feel good drama with your Mary Sue and Marty Stues, who's biggest crises are getting an +A and confessing to their crushes, go watch your sappy happy drama highschool dramas and let your sunbaes enjoy a real melodrama about life and death.
Slow start, but you will be hooked by the forth episode. It will also break your heart multiple times throughout. This is not a "kissy kissy romance". It revolves around the speculated lives of two real Joseon artists, so the plot mainly focuses on that. However, there are two romances throughout the story. The acting and film score is superb. Most impressive to me is the lead, Moon Geun Young who portrays a woman raised as a boy. Painter of the Wind is worth a watch if history interests you.
Lee Jong Suk's entrance as a lead in this show was disappointing and I blame the writing. Despite having an odd super power he can't turn off, we don't see it in action much and he doesn't seem to mature much throughout the show despite many opportunities for growth. The sudden relationship between him and Lee Bo Young's character didn't feel organic either. The side love interest Yoon Sang Hyun does a great job at his character, despite his character making unlikely decisions.
