Shin Ji-ho, 27, has an overwhelming number of titles that precede his name: pop pianist, beast pianist, musical actor and composer, to name a few.

The writing has gotten sloppy. It's obvious that we're supposed to be transitioning now to making the possibility of a romance between Ha-ni and Hyeon-myeong a serious one, but it's also just as obvious that Hyeon-myeong isn't much of a character in the first place, at least for this kind of storyline...More
