Oh, no post yet? I thought of coming here and lurk instead. Aigoo...

My first impression, well not exactly first, more like second or third since I've been following this drama progress ever since Jo In Sung was mention of taking the lead role. Yes, I'm so Jo In Sung bias. Since this is his drama comeback after a long long long feverish chant of having him back to dramaland, I'm all invested. Whether or not if this drama will suck.

Back to topic, my first impression, awesome cinematography. It made the whole cast looked like they bathed in unicorn blood or something. All of them so pretty.

Storyline, everything is for now well placed and paced. I've never watch any of Noh Hee Hyung drama before. So I'm still iffy if the drama will stick to its current course. Chaebal, dont disappoint, Writer Noh-nim.

Acting, as I've mention before I'm JIS bias, so even if there are a couple of scenes where I felt he was being a tiny bit overacting, I'd just let it passed. Elsewhere, JIS is just awesome. Playing in his best element. Those closeup shots made it really hard not to stare and drool. Hee.... Yes, I'm in fangirl mode.

As for Song Hye Kyo, I've never despise her. She has been lovely ever since she appeared in Full House. I didnt watch Autumn In My Heart. It was too soapy and I wasnt into korean drama during tht time. *gasps* Chincha? Yes, yes. I wasnt into korean drama during its first Hallyu wave. Anyhoo... SHK is doing a great job being a blind chaebol with no split personality. Just another thing to mention, doesnt SHK ever age? Like damn, tht's one awesome unicorn blood she bathed in.

Kim Bum and Eun Ji, it's fun to watch this adorkable pair get together. :wub:

I'm gonna stop here before I get too deeply invested.

Oh wait, I have to mention this. Love the OST. Especially song by The One. Cant wait for it to be released officially. :wub: :wub: :wub:

Meanwhile, this is one of TWTWB OST Fanvid sung by Yesung.

Well, I didn't want to make a post one after another so I waited for some (you daryn :P ) to comment before I do.
On my behalf, I'm totally hooked. Got hooked by first beautiful scenes and cinematography then by JIS. I really had forgotten that I've seen him in 'Frozen Flower' so I was impressed by him. Initially, my reason for watching TWTWB was Kim Bum only but right now I am watching for both of OTPs.
Somehow, KB reminds of his character in Padam Padam (I know they are not similar) and bromance between him and JIS is so cute and so fun to watch.
As for SHK, I always wanted to see her acting as I have only heard of her beauty and my first impression of her is really good.
Can't wait for Wednesday :mrgreen:

I knew I would be the one having a double post here but did not know this soon. :unsure:

Just watched ep4&5 now and I have to say that I am really loving this drama. and what's with all those close up shots of JIS and SHK? as if they are about to come out of your screen any minute.
now to the mystery bit, at first I thought secretary Wang is OS's real mom now I am thinking if she is OY's mom.
the pace is quiet slow but somehow I am not minding that at all. I have watched both eps and it is only Thursday.

I had high hopes for this drama but it kind of fell flat for me.

I really loved this drama. After watching the end, I never regret starting it. Really, the cast was almost perfect, it didn't feel like a regular drama and also the shots were like a movie in every episode. I guess everyone has different taste but it kept wide awake and interested every week without that feeling of boredom towards the end.
Jo In Sung is an eye candy, really gorgeaous and without denying Song Hye Kyo talent, I feel his acting was the reason this drama was something else.
