StrawBan’s Review:

Although it was a light and fun drama, the plot wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. Jun is really cute pretending to be a dog though. His acting is always as good. I somehow felt that the lead girl – Koyuki – wasn’t as convincing. The plot was also kinda guessable. Having seen a lot of dramas so far, there was nothing super surprising.

Also, the music was kind of strange. I mean the instrumentals. Maybe it’s just me!

On the other hand, I really learned a lot about dancing and all! This is all psychological. And I didn’t know modern dance was like that! I personally am not a huge fan of dance, partially because I don’t understand it and also because it never really attracted me. All I’ve ever seen was like, k-pop dance (yeah, I know haha) and ballet. So … yeah! In this drama, you can at least feel the need of the other person in the main characters. I sometimes still think that it’s kind of awkward that Jun is always so cute and all, but with this distant feelings at times … hmm.
