Let us know in the comment what you think about the drama based on its first week of broadcast, would you recommend or not?
1- Ji ChangWook is back with his perfect acting
Ji ChangWook never disappoints in acting. He is finally back from his mandatory military service and this drama is his first project. From the first episodes, there are no doubt that he has the ability to draw you into his character.
His character also suits him perfectly and is ready to make us swoon with his good looks.
If you like loud comedy, this drama is for you. Some scenes are a bit exaggerated but that makes it funny.
With characters waking up after 20 years, the characters are disoriented as well as the families that have been looking out for them for all these years. There are plenty of hilarious scenes.
3- A likable lead female character
Won JinAh acts as Go MiRan and her character is already likable. She accepts any part-times to make money and tries hard in everything. That is a pretty “common” female lead.
What makes her a likable lead female character is the love and support she gives to her little brother. Her brother has an intellectual disability and is a victim of bullies. There are plenty of scenes where her distress and anger for people bullying her brother touched the viewers. She tries her best to support him.
4- Links to cryogenics
Adding to the fun and engaging plot, the drama has also links to cryogenics and science experiments. The lead couple was frozen for 20 years but that is not all, there is a whole secondary plot about this.
Murders and science secrets built up anticipation for upcoming episodes. There will be more action and thrills.
