Thoughts: Honestly, I went into this with no hopes of it being good. I’ll admit, I’m a bit shallow when it comes to my dramas and if I don’t find anyone remotely attractive then my interest level is lowered. But it was a Sunday, had nothing to do so I said fuck it. And I’m glad I did! I don’t know how long this show can keep my interest but I love the whole Romance is a Bonus Book vibe it has going on. Instead of books, there is food and math. One of those things I really like. There is even a little underlining mystery happening. It’s a bit obvious but I am intrigued to see how it unfolds. Plus, the more I watch the more I can tell Kyung Ho apart from Nam Goong Min, cause you can’t tell me they aren’t the same damn person.
