He then writes a webtoon series about his past relationships, specifically his four ex-girlfriends, which includes an older, wealthy divorcee, a chic and successful woman who works at an investment firm, and a third-rate, airhead actress. The webtoon reveals plenty of details about Myeong Soo's love life, and it becomes a huge hit. Soon, Myeong Soo is considered a cross between Public Enemy read moreNumber One and National Heartthrob, and his webtoon gets adapted into a movie.
Kim Soo Jin is a film producer who's prepared to do whatever it takes to save their failing production company. Because of this, she accepts the assignment to produce a webtoon adaptation. But to her horror, Soo Jin belatedly finds out that the webtoon artist is her ex-boyfriend Myeong Soo, and that she's one of the girlfriends he wrote about. And as the movie starts shooting, the project also brings Myeong Soo's other ex-girlfriends back into his life all at the same time.

As many already know, Ex-Girlfriend Club had to go through an (uncalled) cut, going from 16 episodes to only 12. Fortunately, this Kdrama didn't seem to suffer much from it and managed to stay true to itself until the very end; so no need to fret about the quality going downhill.

The only valid explanation I see for Ex-Girlfriend Club's low ratings is that it doesn't have any "epic love" nor any read more "bad-to-the-bone villain". It is simply a heartfelt story with a generous sprinkle of fluff and hilarity, as its OST can corroborate. Although the story is unpretentious, the characters are all layered. Flawed yet lovable, the characters are more than just love interests and whatnot; each of them is his/her own person. The genuineness the characters give off is enhanced by the great acting. The cast did a flawless job, Bun Yo Han was especially shining in this drama. The ones behind the cast wouldn't have been able to find a more perfect fit for Myung Soo, even if they had tried. Not to mention how believable Song Ji Hyo and him were at acting as a couple, they were simply the cutest.

This drama, free of the usual draggy angst, can be watched over and over without losing much of its charm. To put it in a nutshell, Ex-Girlfriend Club is the perfect drama to watch if you want to uplift your current mood.

This was an enjoyable watch. The story was simple really, and the best thing about this drama is that they kept it simple. I really enjoyed different interactions between characters, how each character eventually became and individual, and more than the romance, I mostly enjoyed the friendship here.

Of course the main attraction of this drama were the characters. For me it was more how they were easy to relate to more read more than anything.

-Soo Jin is a hardworking girl who wants to produce meaningful movies. To do that she has to accept working on movies she's less enthusiastic about.
-Myung Soo is a webtoon artist who's getting by (though I don't know how he would afford a Burberry blancket :P). He's a positive person, chill and fun to be around.
-Hwa Yeong is a career woman with a crazy side to her that needs to be kept in check.
-Ji Ah is a woman stuck in the image of a classy madame, but yearns for freedom from it.
-Rara gives off the impression of a loose girl who'd anything to reach her dream when in reality she's a sweet person who needed someone to remind her of her value.
-Jo Geon is an artist at heart, with all the negative and positive that comes with it. He's moody, he's unpredictable, he's got a temper, but he's warm, doesn't judge others and reflective.
-Finally, though we didn't see much of Yeong Jae, I found him much more refreshing now that he got rid of that perfectness when it comes to relationships.

I find those are all traits we can relate to, to some degree and I really enjoyed the focus on it. Any fight, breakup or argument came from within, and not from any flimsy external factor, or stupid misunderstanding. The development in the relationships felt natural, and the characters had chemistry. The friendship between the ladies was a delight it reminded me of one of my favourite high school romcom movies "John Tucker Must Die".

I'm not sure if the episode cut was a positive or a negative occurrence. On one hand there was no time to waste on any extra angst, so even annoying characters had to wrap up their act fast, actually making them more likeable. On the other hand, there were some events that felt got wrapped conveniently fast an could benefit some a deeper exploration.

Overall light watch with relatable characters and unique comedic moment,

    I like this drama. It's cute and funny. It's just sad that it has only 12 ep because it was missing something but it's still good how they managed to end it.

      You shouLd watch Love Forecast where Lee Seung Gi and Moon Chae Won was starring. rara or Ryu Hwayoung really looks PSH there. I really thought she was PSH in a minute I saw her. Lol. But then again HwaYoung has voluptuous body and Shin Hye is slender. So I figured it out lol after a few moments. She is a good actress as well. C:

    I super like this drama...I never thought Byun Yo Han can be this charming. I'm looking forward on his coming project. But I need more episode for this...Why they cut it short??? They should have elaborate the back story of the 3 ex-girlfriend... Seeing Hwa Young back story is not enough...I'm really curious how Myeong Soo end up with her 3 ex and how's their relationship was.

    I love the OST...kekeke!!!

    I really like the ost when the ex gf appears. C: anyway just finished this just now. I'm happy I watched it. Its a light rom com with no hidden sick twist. Coz most rom com drama ends up with melodramatic climax where I get annoyed and makes me drop the drama altogether. Soo Jin and Myeong Soo is so cute together. I love all the cast!!! ^___^

    I have mixed feelings about this drama. Here's why:
    1) Although the plot line was strong, I felt that the characters were vague.
    2) I liked the fact that it was short but then again I felt many scenes were missing.
    3) I wish the main couple relationship was more deep but they were cute together.
    In every down I mentioned, there's also an up. It's weird, actually.

    Super cute drama. Same feels with Marriage Not Dating. Although I loved Director Jo, Myeong Soo and Soo Jin are soulmates and that confession of MY in the last few seconds, OMG! We need a flashback of that scene.
