Frankly speaking I've binge-watched this strange fairy tail like a guilty pleasure and I was really impressed. It has beautiful visuals and unforgettable OST, clever plotting, interesting combination of power struggle, magic and exotic mythology, romance etc. It could have been a real masterpiece.

But the show has some problems. The lead actor broke his leg when making stunts and that's why (and because of other problems) they had to shorten the drama with a litle bit strange galoping ending looking like a trailer.

Another problem is miscast: as for me I can't watch mature actors playing young characters. All this looks like a 1950s' movie. Particulary the actress playing Kiha is bad with her overweight and bags under eyes. The lead did a very good job, his smile is magnetic, it is a hard task to play a goodie and not to make him dull but he is also old. A younger actor may have coped with all these stunts without injuries.

Also the mythological pathetic flashback in the 1st episode is too long, some viewers loose patience and skip it. Don't do it, it merely explains why the characters receive thier karmic payback later. From the 3rd episode the pacing gets thrilling, from there up to 22nd episode the story arc is very good.
