Comment: The synopsis above doesn't make this drama sound very interesting, but when you watch it acted out convincingly, it's really enjoyable, at least to me.  I'm a sucker for love/revenge plots, which explains my love for Sealed with a Kiss. I love watching emotionally conflicted male leads who are torn by their duty for revenge and their love for the enemy's daughter. I think the two main leads in this series have great onscreen chemistry together. Even though the main actor may not be the traditional good-looking Korean star, but his infectious smile can completely melt your heart. Don't get deter by the "Romeo and Juliet" label, the ending of this drama is very different from that typical tragic formula. I'm not going to spoil the ending for you, but you won't be disappointed.
