I don’t dislike this drama. I enjoy it. That being said, there really is some campiness and cheesiness baked in. The fight scenes between demons or demons and humans makes me laugh at just how poorly executed they are and just how fake they are. Forget about wire work not being very believable at times, the blocked out fight scenes

Gah! I’m currently in the middle of watching episode 19 and I’m steaming. That lowdown dirty rotten…lots of bad words. I hate her, I really do.

As predictable as this drama can be and as bad as some of the acting and situations can be, it does have its charm. I’m not saying the actors are bad or can’t act…more like the staging and things just seem just like that—staged. Not quite natural. Anywho, these episodes see some interesting developments for our characters. After going out

I tried watching this drama several years ago, but ended up quitting it. Not because it as awful, but because the video quality was so low and the English subtitles were rather lacking. Now there’s better videos an the subtitles are complete! The earlier episodes have some bad grammar and confusion, but its overall good enough quality to understand what
