Destined With You: trailer, plot, and cast
Destined With You is like your typical office drama infused with various magical elements. A lawyer named Jang Shin-yu (Rowoon) is bound by a creepy, centuries-old curse. After meeting with a shaman, he finds out that civil servant Lee Hong-jo (Jo Bo-ah or sometimes spelt as Cho Bo-ah) holds the key to changing his fate. The story takes an interesting turn when Jang Shin-yu mistakenly downs Lee Hong-jo’s love potion.
Other cast members to watch out for include Yura from the former K-pop group Girl’s Day, Ha Jun (Bad Prosecutor), Lee Bong-ryun (Crash Course In Romance), Park Kyung-hye (My Roommate Is a Gumiho), and more.

Destined With You: ending and brief thoughts
Destined With You ended on a satisfying note. Hong-jo's annoying bully from high school (who still causes trouble for her at work) and her creepy stalker are finally taken down. The chemistry between our main leads never fizzled out, and their love story (which had its tragic origins in the past) made watching the finale and the entire show worth it. Kwon Jae-gyeong, the second lead in the story and the one who sometimes made us doubt in the beginning about his intentions towards Hong-jo, shone in the end with his sincere heart.
In our opinion, Destined With You wasn't a perfect drama as it had several filler scenes. However, the show also had its strengths such as its harmonious blend of genres, the thrilling romance, and the impressive acting skills of the main cast.
