Lee Min Ho is so different in this drama (more handsome, more 
masculine, more feels...I am drooling ;P). He finally 
changes from flower boy's (Boys over Flower) image to a real
man here. He did most of the action and stunt on his own and
I can say that he did a very good job. His acting skills has
improved a lot! I am sure he will gather more male fans from 
this drama and I already knew some...:).

Park Min Young also did her best in this drama. At first, I 
am curious...can this petite lady be a bodyguard is this 
drama? Can she fight? But she really nailed me down by her 
acting...WOW...Her fighting skills is not bad at all! 

At last I was being spelled by their acting and get hooked 
from episode to episode. For me this is the best action 
romance drama for this year so far. I am looking forward for 
their next drama soon.

I love the casts, I love the story and I love the OST. Let's
listen to my most favourite song from the OST. IT'S ALRIGHT!
