This just finished up its Netflix run today -- I don't think I would have stuck with it for the whole season if it hadn't been running on the two-episodes-a-week schedule, it was definitely not a triumph. Did anyone else give it a go?

While I'll give them credit for coming up with a plausible scenario for which Ae Jung and the father both believed the other person was responsible for the breakup/abandonment, and thus the father isn't a deliberate deadbeat, overall Ae Jung seemed to be more of a collection of tropes than an actual character.

Some of the commenters on Dramabeans & MyDramaList were wishing we could have had a series about former(?)-gangster Pa Do and his son, and, I definitely was more interested in Pa Do's storyline than the other characters, he's got a great 'Spy-Daddy' vibe.
