Be Arrogant is a short drama that still manages to deliver interesting characters and a solid story line. The relationship between Do Ra Hee and Hong Ha Ra is the highlight of this drama, the development of it and the impact it has on the characters. Sismances, sisterhood, and strong female friendships are sorely lacking in a lot of dramas. I also appreciated the realistic view of relationships and just how messy read more they can be. No Cheol is the male lead and he is a huge jerk with very few redeeming qualities, something that Ra Hee and Ha Ra point out many times throughout the story and both women constantly question why they still have feelings for him. I have seen similar scenarios in real life of women staying with a guy that they readily admit isn't good for them because feelings are not something that you can turn on or off, no matter how much you want to or how hard you try. Shin So Yool is the standout here, I had only seen her in supporting roles and I am really impressed by her acting-I hope to see her in more lead roles in the future. Overall, Be Arrogant was a surprisingly complete and satisfying drama despite the short run time.

This is the first mini-drama I have watched, and I did not regret watching this :)

It may run for a short time but it has delivered its story very well. The actors did well in portraying their characters. Before watching this, I've been wishing No Cheol to be with Hara, but as I watch the drama and found out their story, how I hated him and wished for him to be read more dead instead :D :P hahaha.

I love the sisterhood relationship here. How nice to think of it if you have that kind of relationship with your sister just like Ra Hee and Hara.

Anyway, this was a nice drama. Good for killing some boredom. I like this drama, because you can just finish it all for like 3 1/2 hours?? Since its very short. This is something you could re-watch because it doesn't take a long time to finish watching it, well, I think for me.

Both are about fashion, and have strong heroines; I do I do is about romance while Be Arrogant is more about friendship, but they give a similar vibe

both have good female characters who have a second chance and build the life they wanted

    i liked the first part when it was more focused on a friendship between girls and their business. the second part got more focused on romantic relationships and i found it kinda boring although i must say i liked the plot twist towards the end and ending overall.

    it was average but enjoyable

    I didn't expect this to be so good. It's really short but so much happens. It's a new fav. Would this count as a second female lead syndrome show? I think She was Pretty was the only kdrama I've seen with a legit second female lead.

    AH!!!!!! SO THE GUY IS THE ONE FROM SUFBB ???
    I can't stop thinking that he looks familiar !

    Anyway the drama is pretty good. I love the story and the actors are really great as well ! Sadly I'm watching on YT and they mute some parts of the drama, but still overall I enjoyed it. And also it's SUPER short (which is nice in my opinion) but has a ... deep meaning somehow I guess ? It's just interesting and different from other drama :)

    WHAT A GEM! I started watching this one expecting to drop it after the 1st episode because the description did not really catch my attention & the episodes were short & only 10 of them... BUT, IT WAS AWESOME! The story is engaging, full of interesting situations & completely different than other dramas. I fell in love with all the actors & their performances were so natural & real that you cannot help but adore them. You really get to hate them @ their worst & then you slowly fall in love with all their good & bad parts. It was not contrived, did not have all those clichés typical of dramas &, maybe because it was so short, each episode was just right with no superfluous scenes. I'll be re-watching this one!

    I want to watch this for Yoo Min Kyu and Shin So Yool, but the question is if it'll get subbed or not.
