Here’s the latest review of our current favourite show.
While we were met with a shocking turn of events at the end of last episode when Na Hee Do took it upon herself to declare her feelings for Baek Yi Jin by confidently going in for a kiss, this week presents heartbreak laid out on a plate full of broken expectations.
Baek Yi Jin finds himself drawn towards Na Hee Do however he retropects as the weight of their past and the people around him reinstate how being together would be the worst idea for them. This in turn, adds a burden about separating from Na Hee Do forever which is what he would hate more than not getting into a romantic relationship.
Rejection doesn’t bode well with the talented fencer who finds herself slipping down and losing focus. However she takes it in stride and Baek Yi Jin gets jealous of her interaction with other boys.

Deciding to finally date each other, one of the most cinematic scenes of the show unfolds under the snowfall when Baek Yi Jin finally accepts their love.
