I think the drama was pretty good. I admit it got pretty boring at times but it was still watchable. I find the main actress really really cute. She really is a baby-face. She looks so young, I'm jealous. I just have one question. Do people really care about age? I mean you shouldn't look down on people who are older than you and that's why I hated so many people in read more this drama. Instead of respecting their elders they look down on them for being old. Well anyways despite all that the drama was great. It was worth watching!

This is one of those dramas that promise more than they deliver. The story caught my interest - the idea of a baby-faced 34-years old beauty that has to conceal her age in order to advance in the design world who also happens to fall in love with a much younger boy in the process had the prospect of a very interesting and funny show, but I certainly set higher hopes than read more this drama accomplished.

The drama lacks depth - even for a light drama this seemed too light (and this is coming from a person who likes watching shallow things from time to time). It grabbed my attention from the very first episode, I was hooked! Then the following few episodes seemed very promising - the scenario unfolded brilliantly, the story kept getting better and better that I was eager to see more; the chemistry between the 2 main characters was also very pleasant. But about halfway through that spell broke. It felt as if the story got stuck in a point and it just dragged its way to the end. The romantic scenes between Lee So Young and Choi Jin Wook always left me wanting more. It was like something was missing. They had a real potential to develop the relationship on a deeper level but they kept it on the surface. To me this was the most disappointing aspect.

Acting: Even if you don't like light dramas or feel like you can't connect to this one, at least Choi Daniel is a good enough reason to watch it. If it wasn't for his character I might have given it up at one point. I would give him 10/10 for managing to put a smile on my face each time he appeared in a scene :)
The supporting roles also added to the humour of the drama. It wouldn't have been the same without Team Leader Kim Joon Soo ;)

Music: Pretty good. It completed the atmosphere quite well. Memorable enough to be recognize if heard outside the drama, but subtle enough to not even be noticed during the scenes.

Overall though, I guess this is a drama you should keep for when you want to have some light humour. One can certainly enjoy it, but don't expect much emotional depth.

Both revolve around making clothes...in both the female lead always competes with the 2nd female lead who tries every trick to win!
Recommended by Ginger
Both set on fashion and designing. A cute tale of romance and survival in the fashion world.

    I like this drama sooooooo muchhhhhh, what i like the most of course it's love story between choi daniel n jang nara. I can see how much he loves her, and she loves him too, but she just think that their ages differences is the biggest problem. But when choi daniel came to know about that, he still loves her, and jang nara shows her feeling towards him at the end. And i like how daniel choi is trying to help her no matter what and if i being her, of course i will love him too. And the last thing that i like about this drama is the hero is not pictured as a veryyyyyy rich man, but they still have a sweet date like an ordinary couple:)

    if it wasn't for Yoon Seo I would have liked it much more. She's just too hateful.
    But the story itself and the other actor were really awesome. I loved them

      Not just as the character, I have never liked Ryu Jin, he's always an overbearingly controlling, arrogant prick in all the drama's I've seen with him in them, and this drama is no different...

    I watched this while it was airing and actually stuck with it. the romance is cute -not your typical male lead. The fact that jang na ra looks so young and does have a baby face. I always looked forward to seeing the designed clothes.
    This drama is light and has a lot of sweetness to it. if you're board and have time to watch give it a try.

    I AM SOOOOO GLAD I KEPT WATCHING! Although it was hard to keep going from episodes 1-3 because I really wanted to kill the female lead (I thought she was too weak) I kept watching & the rest of the episodes kept my interest. They were clever, funny & full of twists. I would watch this drama again.
