I had this drama on my list for a long time. The length and synopsis kinda dragged me a little until I decided to start. Baker King Kim Tak Goo was a pleasant surprise and way more than I expected. It could have been shorter, I’m sure. Some situations go in circles and repeat themselves a little, but that’s mainly the only detail I can find in the story.
The cast is great, we have renowned stars with great characters, known by other famous works, and they happen to be all together here. That’s a plus to get our attention.
