When I tell you that I have wanted to watch this for so long, I’m not exaggerating. Basically from when I started watching dramas has this been on my watchlist. There were so many things that I ended up loving about the drama. The beginning was a bit rough. I didn’t know how to feel about Choi Kang Soo. I knew there were things he was keeping to himself but maybe it was my own cynicism that made me wonder if he was genuinely a good guy or was this an act. I wasn’t sure how his good guy was going to interact with Lee Dan Ah’s hardworking hardass but what I really liked was that the romantic aspect of this show wasn’t in your face. It felt natural and went at a nice pace. No need to fall in love at first sight all the time.
Like I said, the beginning was rough because I didn’t really know where things were going. I also ended up taking a break because I really couldn’t see endgame to the conflict between Kang Soo and rich boy, Oh Jin Gyu. But after taking a couple weeks break, I got back into it and realized that there were biggest story plots than that drama. When the story started to shift from Kang Soo standing up for injustice to him really building up the brand that is the Strongest Deliveryman, I think the show truly found its identity.
The highlight of the show was the acting of the whole ensemble cast. Outside of Kang Soo and Dan Ah, I really ended up liking Oh Jin Gyu. I went in knowing I was going to love Kim Seon Ho in anything but at first I wasn’t here for his spoiled brat routine. But he actually made it work. Only person that I really didn’t like was Lee Ji Yoon. I get her purpose but instead of coming across as a reformed spoiled child, she came across just plain annoying and I really don’t think she should have ended up with any of the leads.
In the end, I thought this was a good show that showed what can happen when you’re a good person with honest intentions in life. People will stay in your corner when you are in theirs and that felt like the message that came across. I like that message the most.

“I went in knowing I was going to love Kim Seon Ho in anything” LOL. That is a bit too relatable.
It’s so hard not to love him when he’s just…. amazing.
