The drama dealt with a strange man who repeatedly kiss the girl. Initially, one could feel that the lead would be embroiled in betrayal or jealousy. Rather, it’s full of love. The scenes are not intense but quite intimate. you cannot find an Episode without a Kissing or intimate scene. So, if you want to watch a breezy romantic story, then it would be an option. Apart from it, there is not a thing to say about this drama.
The series consist of only 10 Episodes with each running time of 25 Minutes. So probably, it’s not a bad one.
