I was really excited to watch this drama. As soon as I read what the story was about I wanted to see it, because it reminded me a lot of Autumn's Concerto.

So, it started really good, and then it got tired and in the end it just sucked. The characters aren't well written so it's like hearing them say the same thing over and over again. You never really read more get to know them. It doesn't have good secondary characters either. Her friend, Hyung Sung is really stalker, and I got the creeps watching him, he didn't make me feel anything, just annoyance. The female lead isn't likeable, as opposed to Mu Cheng in AC. Here you don't feel sorry for her situation, you just get tired of her not sticking up for herself. The male lead is really just cheesy, you don't sense any real feelings. And the story has like really huge holes, and in other parts it just keeps repeating.



One of the main reasons I started to watch this drama was because of Jo Hyun Jae, I just simply loved him in 49 days and I thought he was a really good actor. But here, I don't know if it's because he was just starting his career or because the script wasn't really good but he just came out flat. Han Chae Young, who is really famous for her role on Delightful Girl Choong Hyan, really didn't stand out here, she didn't make me feel anything. As for the other two who completed the love square, they were just creepy.



The music wasn't anything special, although it did fit the scenes. I specially liked one which was like the intro to Aerosmith's "I don't wanna miss a thing."



In rewatch value, I wouldn't ever watch it again, specially because I got really bored at the end and just pressed fast forward in the tiring scenes.



Overall, it really isn't a good drama, although if you like soap operas, you probably will like this.

Story- Had an interesting story idea. Started off strong and in the middle got really good. Towards the last couple episodes everything got repetitive. The ending was happy.



Acting/Cast- Okay so I love Han Chae Young as an actress in DElightful Girl but here shes seems to fall flat. I also think she just had an okay chemistry with Jo Hyun Jae. nothing to make me wish they read more were never apart. Speaking of him, I loved him in 49 Days but here he is nothing special. I actually preferred Lee Chun Hee. He was just so cute and his love for the female lead shined through more than JHJ's character. The little boy was too cute!



Music- Very creative as most of the songs featured had the words "only you" somewhere in the lyrics like the Title of the Drama. There was also some funky music involved during scenes.



Rewatch- I don't think I can rewatch this because of the last episodes and because of the lack of exciting chemistry among the leads.



Overall- This is an ordinary drama to watch once if you finished all the other amazing dramas out there.

    Finally finished it,It was good from the start but from episode 9 onward it was just so draggy. i got really bored that even fast forwarding a scene after another trying to find something to capture my attention again was tiresome to do

    I felt it was pretty weak, and I managed to get all the way to the weak ending too.

      LOL, it's funny you just mentioned that, when I first sent you the message asking concerning this drama, I had just clicked plan to watch Pasta, the main actress in it is the same as It's Okay, That's Love, I really like her, I'm sorry, but um, well, she's really hot looking, and seems like the type of person that won't take crap from anybody, really feisty, but at the same time seems to be very loving and caring, yeah, I really like her :P and so I'll be downloading and watching Pasta for sure... Thanks for recommending to watch it as well... :)))

    This drama isn't perfect. Yes, its repetitive and the plot is kind of weak. Still, I like the concept and what the writer was going for. I also fell in love with Jo Hyun Jae after watching this drama. For some reason, its just one of my favorites. It's not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I say you should at least give it a try. This is one of the first dramas I watched so it'll always have a special place in my heart.

    I don't think it was as terrible as the reviewer states, but it was weak on plot and the female lead didn't convey the same as her male counter part. I have seen MUCH worse and to compare this to Autumn's concerto or Fated to love you will leave you feeling let down if you have seen those first. Only thing in common with those is an unplanned pregnancy. I enjoyed watching none the less so it wasn't a waste, just take off your rose tinted glasses before watching.
