How Love can melt a cold girl's heart

i think i've been getting more and more harsh in my ratings as time has gone xD. i used to give everything 9s and 10s. Now i kinda like this drama, but my average score for it is less.

So onto explanation for this. I'll be bluntly honest, I only really wanted to watch this because i have a big crush on moon geun young. There I said it, i had a insanely shallow reason for wanting to watch it:3.

This drama was...ok i suppose. The amount of effort to make Moon Geun Young's character seem cold hearted and emotionally drained and hurt was obvious. Also obvious was the fact they intended to chronicle the story of a girl who was hardened as a child to be cold and wary of warming up to people, and follow as she slowly opens up to the world and melt her ice cold heart. The parallelisms to cinderella are mildly obvious, it's the story of what cinderella woulda been like had she not been so innocent, this is a cinderella that was broken. The plot was interesting i suppose, although i have the feeling that further pondering might yield better thoughts, my thoughts right now are that it was interesting, but not overall amazing.

And in my rare moment of shallowness (oh yes there's more shallow), i didn't think the male lead was all that handsome or amazing, but that may just be my jealousy getting in the way, much like i don't think Jae Hee is an amazing actor out of pure jealousy of who he was able to smooch in 2 of his dramas.

The one insert song, sung by Yesung, was ok i suppose, but i've by now mildly grown tired of one insert song dramas, unless the song is just that flippin amazing.

Don't misunderstand though, in all honesty, this drama was pretty good, and it's a touching tale of a hurt child growing up and being changed and warming up to the world thanks to the love of people around her. The story is touching, i just am mildly disappointed at the end result, not because it was bad, but because i just personally feel that this could have been soooo SOOOOOOOO much more than it ended up being, although the end result was not shabby as is.
