A clash of wills, fortunes, and egos commences.

From the beginning I decided not to watch this drama actually, that was because there were a lot of other dramas I wanted to watch instead, and the casting and plot didn’t really interest me so it never got on my list. But recently I read somewhere that Golden Cross was one of Koreas most underrated drama ever, and sometimes it’s true, never trust the Koreans rating system :b Anyway, so I watched it, aaaaaand… Damn, i gotta say, whoever said the drama were underrated spoke the truth. It was really exciting and good. When I watched the few first episodes, I said they destroyed my faith in humanity, and now they have the rest of the drama to restore that faith. I don’t want to spoil anything, but it wasn’t completely restored.
I loved the love story, they make me wonder if it’s possible to love a person that much.
The one I feel the most bad about is Um Ki Joon, ottokaae how is he going to restore his image, omo, he played the most hateful character ever. Here is a fun fact about the drama :b That character was supposed to be played by Park Si Hoo, but because of his scandal KBS decided to replace him. Despite his scandal I would rather have Park Si Hoo play it !
