I needed a jolt of makjang after watching a couple of satisfying and heart-warming dramas (PRICELESS, for example). PINK LIPSTICK delivered: it was 149 (150?) episodes of pure 'makjanginess' - deceit, screaming, scheming, hair pulling, and one very vindictive mother-in-law. The length of the drama will definitely put many viewers off (each ep is only 30 minutes though). I started watching this as filler to my currently airing dramas. I was very read more quickly caught up in the plot and was soon watching just this drama. It was so over the top that I enjoyed it.

The romantic betrayal that formed the basis for revenge happened in episode 1. Once the betrayal was revealed, there was a very long flashback that lasted for quite a few episodes. I made sure I watched each flashback episode so that I could enjoy Ga-Eun's revenge. When the flashbacks ended, Ga-Eun was in revenge mode for basically the remainder of the drama.

Park Eun-Hye was well cast as Ga-Eun. Lee Joo-Hyeon's Jung Woo & Seo Yo-Jeong's Mi-Ran were the perfect villains. My favorite character was Park Kwang-Hyun's Ha Jae-Bum who was consistently a sensitive, caring and romantic person. Unfortunately, I didn't feel a real spark between Jae-Bum & Ga-Eun as they were portrayed by the two leads.

PINK LIPSTICK wasn't perfect: it dragged in spots, the revenge element fizzled (I say this because the intensity of the revenge wasn't there towards the end), and everything was resolved just a little too easily. However, PL worked for me despite its shortcomings. It stayed true to the "love-betrayal-revenge-love" theme. The music was well chosen for the scenes. A musical plus was Chopin's 'Tristesse'that was played (after watching AUTUMN TALE, I love this piece whenever it's included in a drama).

This was good as revenge dramas go. Even so, I wouldn't spend this much time to rewatch it.

It has Comedy, good looking cast, family moments, cute little girl, romance, deceit and revenge.

I watched it 2 years ago and at the time I was 18/19.
Once me alone and then with my parents.
It is the longest drama I've watched but still 2 short.
It has the most amazing revenge plot ever in any drama! It was just 2 perfect. And my parents was really crazy about it 2. read more The leading lady is beautiful, her cheating husband is HOT (lol), the guy who falls for her is sooo cute, the evil and backstabbing people around her are SOOOO killable (if u can say that).

This drama plays with all of your emotions and makes you literary wanna go inside and twist some of the characters necks. Uhmmm I would have enjoyed that. But don't worry the leading lady does that pretty well on her own. No need to help once she has started.
Damn it was satisfying. I loved the way she changed 180*. She is really beautiful. I liked it that the leading couple were young. ^^

It has 149 ep. but goddd I wish it never ended. When I watched it I was stuck 2 the comp. hour after hour. I suggest u watch it all. It is REALLY recommendable.
Plus it has a great ending. U will love it. I guaranty it.
Or else you can get your hours back. xD

    Watched it while fast-forwarding every episode my finger was paralyzed for a while but it is not a bad drama but too many episodes and lots of coincidences.. characters always end up meeting in the same coffee shop,restaurant..etc..I would have believed it and took it seriously if they were living in very Small country or a village not a huge city.
    The hairstyle of the 2 male leads at the start of the drama was ridiculous ..a wig or a real hair i couldn't tell but it was hilarious (Park Kwang Hyun) with Ajumma hairstyle is just NO NO wrong, thank god they changed it later in the series.

    This series would have been better if there was chemistry between the heroine and the person she ends up with. Overall this drama just did not live up to my expectations.

      It's really good. At least I think so. :) But you have to wait maybe 30-40 episodes before it becomes really good. I didn't get bored with the first 40, but a lot of people do. xD I liked all of it, hehe.

      It's 149 episodes actually, but it just get better the longer the show goes on. So if you hang on the first episodes you'll definitely like it and want to watch it to the very end. :D

      Oh and you have to like revenge! xD

      Oh good! I am at episode 30, so I am glad to know that the really juicy stuff will be happening soon. The past stuff is interesting, but it is feeling kinda draggy. I want to get to the present! lol
