SPOILER ALERT

First off, I was actually a little skeptical to watch this drama due to excessive praises and high rating from all the popular review sites and friends. Well, through my experience, even though the review were all saying great things it turns out just nice for me. However, this drama definitely deserves all the recognition. I usually took almost one week to watch a drama but this drama had an exception. I just couldn't get enough of Seri and Jeong Hyuk. True to every reviewers out there, they really looks good together !

The plot was actually simple to understand. A little details of Seri's family life was actually very relatable to the world of chaebols. Growing up in a competitive and cold family made her unfamiliar to interact with other people. When she ended up in NK, she had the warmth of a family from the woman in the village also the friends she never had in Ri Jeong Hyuk and his company of five. 

Ri Jeong Hyuk had to hide and sent Seri back to her home country without getting caught by the State Security Department (something like the police through my understanding) because he couldn't trust the man in charge. Having a history of losing his dear brother, all the mysterious accident made him anxious to hand her to the man.  The journey of hiding and sending Seri's back to her country was a challenged, they failed a few times, got caught by the SSD, met Jeong Hyuk's fiancee and Seri's ex-fiance, and finally got caught by Jeong Hyuk's father. There was so much things happened in order to sent her back and in all the mess, there were countless funny scenes that got me laughing so much and the romance between two main casts in between the chaos were just so cute!

The heart-wrenching scenes picked up from the moment the two casts were separated, and let me tell you, I cried a river when they finally reunited. Another plus point here was the cameo of Kim Soo Hyun who acted as a spy from NK, a character from a movie, 'Secretly, Greatly' (oh, missing this movie because it is one of my favorite) and Choi Ji Woo  as the actress that one of the comrade love. 

Beside the two main character, I really love it when Seo Dan (Jeong Hyuk's fiancee) and Gu Seung Jun (Seri's ex-fiance) on the screen. They had a great chemistry together. Even though they only realized the love they had for each other a bit late, they really cute. With Seo Dan's cold and fierce and assertive personality match with Seung Jun's quirky and fun and caring personality made them good together. Ohh how I wish they had a little different ending.

The ending of this drama was a little sad for me despite the main couple still together but it is still not enough for me. I mean, two weeks in Switzerland and wait for another whole year?! Aren't that a little excessive ? Or  is it just how NK works? Well, I am not sure but I really need them to be together like together. Another sad thing was, Seri could never asked how the ahjumma back at the village how they're doing let alone met them. As for the closure, she named her next product with their names and face.  They're just between the borders but they can never met again. Same goes to the comrades in Ri Jeong Hyuk's company. They would be wondering if Seri's doing well and can never communicated with her again.

The scenes were all so beautiful and picturesque and my most favorite was the one when Seri's and the comrades went to a picnic. That was a beautiful one. And of course the scenes shoot in Switzerland. That country always had a beautiful places that I really wanted to visit. Maybe someday.

I didn't intend for this review to get this long lol. Anyway, there is rumor for season two, is it true ?!
