So... Is it as bad as we feared? Hell no!
So... Is it in fact good?? Hell yeah!!!
Seriously, I mean it! And I am not biased at all! Sure, I love Park Shi-hoo and I have listed him as my No 1 actor (even before Lee Jun-ki), but Park Shi-hoo aside, this drama makes me very happy.

The biggest unconventionality is our lead male character. It starts with the name, "Jean Thierry Cha" (pronounced Sha, à la French), and ends with his apparent insanity. His best friend is his psychiatrist, who asks him whether he is taking his medication as he should - betcha he isn't!!

There are other, little things, which make me hopeful for a fun ride. The music: zippy and used strategically, like the Kill Bill theme when he struts into Seo Yoon-joo's apartment. The topic of revenge: used with a smirk. Jean Thierry Cha: "Here comes Edmond Dantes"; next scene: Seo Yoon-joo tells her husband how she can relate to the fact that people like revenge movies like "The Count of Monte Cristo", because revenge is so much fun (of course thinking of how she is taking 'revenge' on Han Se-kyung for looking down on her). And in comes the man from her previous life, out to ruin her for his broken heart.

And of course, the acting: Moon Geun-young: A+; Park Shi-hoo: A+. It was reported that Park Shi-hoo seems a bit smitten with her, and said something along the lines of: "I feel like her looks are unreal during our shoots. It′s like she′s jumped right out from a romance comic; I can′t tell whether I′m in a dream or reality when we′re shooting." I'm with you, Shi-hoo! I can't stop looking at her and be fascinated ...
