This drama has good beginning but viewers will defiantly get bored after watching 4-5 episodes. This drama had above 7.5 rating but that got dropped suddenly in 3-4 weeks. That was so hard to watch full episodes again and again to just write good review. 

“You can avoid watching this drama since it has no powerful storyline. “

The characters of this drama are played so well. This drama shows about the seducing game but there are lots of complications than Seduction. The point is if Shi-Hyun was the best player in that game then how did he fell for Tae-Hee. He just needed to ignore her like he did before with his Ex-Girlfriend.

“Watch this drama if you really wanted to waste your valuable time.”
