"As it always has been and always will be, lovers will repeat the same mistakes by fighting, breaking up, hating, and missing each other. Its always spring as long as we are together"

A very strong and meaningful message given.

`Story`
Although the web-drama was short and note that I haven't read the web-toon, the development of the characters & plot was amazing. It shows how two people loved each other purely read more and after their break up even though they're both trying to move on in different ways there's still a sparkle that keeps them looking back and that's cause they're still in love, no matter how many times they're trying to deny it not just to others but themselves as well.

The flashbacks were so touching and sweet & with the combination of comedy during the whole web-drama Istg it was so refreshing and amusing to watch.

`Acting / Casting`
Not going to hide that I am a BJ & IC so of course I adore both Sandara Park & Kang Seung Yoon, but their acting was still surprising and in a good way of course. They're both amazing at acting and even though it might have been weird for them to act as a couple considering the age gap as well, it's amazing how they managed to make us viewers put that aside and get into their characters so intensively. Some of the other actors & actresses were models and I am so amazed at the outcome of their acting skills, I'd trully consider watching more of them each.

`Music`
Not going to mention how much I loved the music. Other than Wild & Young which is a fantastic song, I fell in love with the duets. Acoustic versions suit Dara's voice best & with Seung Yoon's soulful voice it didn't last much before I got them chills.

`Rewatch Value`
I loved this web-drama and I can't wait to see more of both Kang Seung Yoon & Sandara Park as well as the other actors & actresses. I'd def rewatch it not just for the plot but also for the puns made, for example the come back home scene or . . 'glad i wasn't an idol - especially not at yg' :' )

If you want to watch this, I recommend it at all cost!!

This was a cute, fun web drama. I liked the characters and the acting was good I thought. There were moments of subtlety throughout the series that I appreciated. Looking at it realistically, though, I wish the story had gone a different direction.

While I liked most of this drama, it doesn't really emotionally grab you and most of the time when I watch a web drama I can't wait for the read more next installment, but with this one, I found I would wait a few days or so before going to the next episode.

The use of music in the show is nicely done and there was an episode that made me laugh out loud for the meta humour used.

The ending, I suppose is a foregone conclusion, and while I really liked the last sentiment sad by the characters, I think an alternative would have been better:

(SPOILER-Y! I will write it backwards so that there is less chance of being soiled, even though, come on? you didn't see it coming?)

Read this from the last word to the first for less spoiler-ness.

I did like it, just not as much as others. I would like to see Dara and Kang Seung Yoon in more projects though.

Both 'YG dramas' so we I had similar 'feelings' watching them.
Both of them have the same lead male.

Also about a couple breaking up due to stresses and conflicts, where the guy aspires to find success in being a musician.

    I enjoyed this far more than I expected. Also, I really liked the ending.
    Loved the cameos and inside jokes. And the soundtrack was really good!

    The music style of the band reminded me of Good Charlotte, even the main song sounded far too similar, anybody knows if that was intentional or was I just hearing things? lol

    What I really love about this drama is the OST. Great Songs. It has the movie "Begin Again" feels because music is a great part of the lead role's life.
    Though this drama is made to look cute, it is very realistic, the struggles of the characters are real. With Woori, I felt her in the drum scenes and the attempt piggy back scene (with hyeon woo at the bridge). This is, for me, Dara's nicest acting performance so far. Far better than Dr. Ian (I dropped that drama). I love the cast too, they did well especially Seung Yoon.. They all have good chemistry. I also enjoyed the live performance of the OST on youtube, their thank you event for the success We broke up.

      If you like kpop idols, music, fluff, romance along with lovers fighting and picking on each other... this is worth your time. If not... better look for another webdrama to watch.

    Jang KI young-- I've totally fallen for this guy and I love his characters. I love all the characters, the song and the story. It's short but straight.

    From YouTube. A cute, light, SHORT, realistic young love, web drama. 10 episodes about 16-20 minutes each. Very good music too. Perfect for when you have a few minutes here or there or want a quickie. An 8 for me just for those reasons. I really wish they had a couple more episodes and a LOT more of his music.
