Ending Notes

Cherry Blossoms After Winter

The chemistry between the main couple is really good and the friendships were well portrayed. As many webtoons and manga are being now brought into dramas, this was also a good drama worth binge watching.8 episodes 20minute each swept away like seconds. The story still remains fresh in my mind even though I saw this when it was ongoing and it’s been months now. Strongly recommend you to see this teen webtoon based drama, you are going to love it!
