I agree with everyone about preferences. Being retired and kdramas being my passion, I decided to rewatch all 4 episodes. What a difference! Storyline was more connected and slapstick was not a pain to watch. Three parts really annoyed me...boss & assistant director, girlfriends with fortune teller and family at opera dinner. I think these parts really stalled the flow. But I think JCW fans have been conditioned to faster paced JCW dramas??
