Character Development: 1/10 (completely non-existent)

Soundtrack: 5/10 (Admittedly I did like some of the songs during the drama and not the actual OSTs )

Gentleman's Dignity

Overall Score: 8/10

Character Development: 2/10 (no development after leaving New York)
Plot Development: 1/10 (pretty much the same as their character development)
