The Duo

Rating: (Not Rated - See below)

Genre: Period Drama
Episodes: 32
Cast: Chun Jung Myung, Han Ji Hye, Kang Ji Sub, Lee Moon Shik, Lee Sang Yoon

"The drama tells the story of two men who were switched at birth. Chun Dong, born of noble birth, lives his life as a slave while Gwi Dong lives Chun Dong's life as a nobleman. They both fall in love with the same girl, Dong Nyeo."

Although I liked watching it, I don't think I would watch it again.  Truthfully, it wasn't as great as I thought it was going to be.  The acting and film production is top notch, but that doesn't stop the script from being sub par.  I know that many viewers will probably throw rotten tomatoes at me, but this is just my opinion.

Although it is a good character study, it doesn't have the makings of an addicting story.  When you are watching a good drama or reading a story, you always have a person to root for.  The audience of the story end up becoming one with the main character(s).  They laugh, cry, and root for the protagonist.  However, this story just makes the viewer lost.  What is the main plot?  Yes, they were switched right after birth, but that's not the main point to the story.  Without a main idea, it is not a story.  I mean, if this was a historical drama it wouldn't be so bad since they would be following the history of a certain person, but this is fiction.  You can't have a good fiction without having a goal being reached in the end.

P.S. Anyone else think that the ending was kind of unrealistic?
