As I've said, this one is not about the love between the two main characters and how they overcome all the obstacles such as I've listed above with their love.
Rather, it's about how a husband and wife adjust to each other, how they deal with the shock they experience when they get married for the first time.
In fact, the guy doesn't even love the girl, but marries her nevertheless. (which is a blesphemy in Korean dramas)
I already knew that but that's not a new concept. It's been done before. Many dramas have focused on how married couples have to adjust to each other. Also, characters in K-Dramas have gotten married in the past even though they're not in love.
donilpark said:There's no misunderstandings in this drama.
Yes, there is. I'm not referring to stuff that's kept from them but misunderstandings between them. When you have a married a couple that barely knows anything about one another, you're going to have misunderstandings.
Yes, so it started out with high ratings, but fell because of good competitors like Secret Lovers (which I also enjoyed very much) and Seodongyo, although these shows didn't get high ratings themselves.
I only said that they didn't cut this down to 18 episodes because of low ratings.
14.2 isn't high ratings. That's not even close. Ratings 20 and above would be good. Getting ratings such 10, 11, or even 12 is considered low. If a drama is set to be a certain number of episodes, the only way that's going to change is due to ratings. If ratings are great they might expand the series a few episodes. This has happened in the past with dramas such as Who's My Love & Dae Jang Geum. If ratings are really low then the network airing it will often reduce the number of episodes. Recent dramas such as Stained Glass, 3 leaf Clover & The Prince's First Love have been reduced in episodes due to low ratings.
Last thing, I'm not trying to change your opinion of the show. As I stated before, all that matters in the end is whether you enjoyed the drama or not. However, I disagree that this a new concept of drama. I think this falls in line with the typical K-Drama. It wasn't a bad idea for a drama but it could've been done better.
