I’ll be real, other than a promising plot one of the things that got me to watch Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People was how charismatic and cool I thought the main lead looked. And charismatic and cool he was. When I began watching Rebel I wasn’t really looking for a love story, but more of a story in which the underdog triumphs, and that I got.

Yoon Gyun Sang, along with the other impeccable actors of this drama kept me glued to the screen episode to episode.

Now let me let you in on all the things I could not get enough of in this drama, other than the charming leads half smirk that did all sorts of things to my heart.
