Прекрасная дорама, посмотрела на одном дыхание. Знала, что не засну, пока не узнаю чем все это кончится. Отличная задумка с синдромом, потрясающие актеры, как гг, так и второстепенные, + неплохая игра и красивая лав стори для девочек, что еще нужно от типичной корейской дорамы? Хотя корейцы любят затягивать и закручивать сюжет, но потраченное время в данном случае окупится впечатлениями от просмотра.
Единственное, что меня огорчило, не показали, что руководитель и Ю Ра сошлись, хотя так долго к этому вели.
