“We had the same dream"

Synopsis and personal opinion:
An independent and self-made woman at the peak of her career meets a young immature man. They date each other for a while, but soon enough love apparently vanishes without leaving a trace … if a baby isn’t to consider a trace.
This is a story of struggles of a single mother in a hypocritical and corrupted society; a woman in a men’s world. While I’m not new to our society problems and how women are, more often then sometimes, treated, in a lot of episodes I was shocked, angry, in disbelief of how ridiculous certain events were. The writers tried to portray many social issues, : condition of single mothers in Korea, corruption, parental rights laws, work rights and ethics, mentally abusive parents etc. The love story itself was very subtle and wasn’t really the main point; the two main leads weren’t able to overcome and admit their own faults until the very end. I would somehow compare them to the English classical characters of “Pride and Prejudice”.
Park Tae Yeon isn’t Darcy, but he represents Pride. He can’t deal with reality, too prideful to analyze his own behavior in an adult way, to admit his own mistakes, take a step back and resolve the situation. He isn’t the typical lead, more of the anti-hero figure actually. I really wanted him to grow up, to fight for himself and for what he was feeling inside, but..
Cha Gi Yeon on the other hand is Prejudice. She’s strict, also very prideful but in a healthy way, she knows who she is and will fight until the end, but she isn’t able to bend, to understand more, to let herself go because she doesn’t trust men, almost a hermit.
Both aren’t able to comunicate, but hey .. ain’t nothing new in kdrama world.
Seems like people never want to sit and talk, but pile sh!t over sh!t until it all explodes.
I won’t digress with other characters or else this will be a very very long and boring review, but know that there’s a gold digger and I would like to pull her hair out. One by one. Slowly.

Actors:
No Min Woo -> I really like him, but I wish he chose a better character
Park Shi Yeon -> Surprising. Very very pretty
Bae Su Bin -> AWESOME!!! Neutral Bad character, fantastic interpretation

Music:
Personally didn’t like it. Nothing special and I actually don’t even remember one song

Recommend/Rewatch value:
Yes I do recommend, not for the "love story” but for opening eyes on social issues.
I liked it, in fact I watched the entire drama in 2 days, but the end and how FAST it was wrapped disappointed me pretty much. I had expectations on the characters development, but they didn’t give me this pleasure.
I won’t rewatch it.

Wow. They took exaggeration to a whole new level with Best Wedding. I love the writer is bringing to light an issue that is prevalent in some countries. I think in the US most judges tend to give custody to the mother, but it is a case by case basis in most states. Plus, in the US there are all kinds of family dynamics. If this drama (even exaggerated) is a depiction of Korean reality when it comes to single motherhood and what makes people family, then it is just sad. Honestly, this drama had me on an emotional roller coaster. I almost gave it a 10 for that alone. However, some of the characters could have been better developed. For example Park Tae Yong was all over the place. Even until the end I was uncertain of his character. I had the same feeling about Hyeon Myeong Yi. I also thought the side stories were unnecessary and boring. Regardless, the ending was OK.

Park Shi Yen and the writer did an excellent job balancing the strength and vulnerability of Hyeon Myeong Yi. Bae Su Bin was also good as the strange and unusual Jo Eun Cha. Their characters were the most consistent and had the best growth. The other actors were fine also. Little Dan is just too cute.

Side note: Although I don't find No Min Woo to be that great of an actor, he does strip a few times in this. Worth watching those parts. Keke

The music was appropriate.

I will never rewatch this.

This is a good drama. I recommend it.
