There are two women named Oh Hae Yeong, who were classmates in high school, getting all mixed up in each other’s lives because they share the same name. The problem is that they not only share the name, but they also have the same occupation, which is probably the bigger issue. They both come to work for the same large catering company, but one is a team leader while the other is read moresimply an assistant manager. Then there’s also a man in their lives, who has the ability to see into the future...

I have come really close, really REALLY close, but I've never given a drama all 10s so easily before. It's not because it's perfect, but it's because I loved every single episode from beginning to the end. The cast is Amazing, and includes some of my now favorite KDrama characters EVER! The story was totally different than any other romcom I've seen, and kept me fully engaged from the beginning until the read more end. My rewatch score is an easy 10, since I was often tempted to rewatch episodes immediately while waiting impatiently for new episodes to come out. The music has been on steady rotation in my playlist too.

Most people will be skeptical that this drama deserves all the praise it will likely get, I know I would be. A common question has been, "Is it really that good?". Umm... YES. The answer is YES, in ALLCAPS.

Let's start at the beginning, which most people call slow, but I was completely fascinated from the very first scene. I had a friend who was a sound editor, and I always thought the job was so fascinating, but I love the way they weave that element in throughout the show. I think it's the attention to details like that that makes this drama stand out more than others. Add the psychic premonition/flash forward element to that, and I was hooked for sure. I just had to know what was going to happen next.

I think the writing was really extraordinary in how they married all the different genres together without ever totally losing it's charm. Watching it felt like being on a roller coaster. I liked the ebb and flow of the story... Some moments are cute, some intense, some are passionate, some are heartbreaking, then frustrating, then suddenly hilarious... In telling the story of a mature and truly complicated relationship, they never settle on sticking to one approach for too long. Some people who joined in for the romance may get annoyed during the depressing & frustrating parts, and those looking for suspense probably got bored during the extra romantic moments, but I was too invested in the story to ever be bored, and I knew the story would never stay on one type of moment for too long. I know that personally that "surfing" shirt kept haunting my dreams... One can criticize certain parts of the story for not being realistic, but being real is not my criteria for a great drama. In fact, the only other drama I could see myself giving perfect 10s to is Secret Garden, for most of the same reasons, and that is definitely not a drama that relies on being "real". All the authenticity this drama needs comes from the portrayal of the characters.

Seo Hyun Jin as Regular Oh Hae Yeong, and Eric Moon as Do Kyeong, are not the ideal dream couple on paper. They are emotionally damaged, dysfunctional, and certainly imperfect, but I fell in love with both characters as they fell in love with each other. Regular Oh Hae Yeong's vulnerability broke my heart, and yet inspired me. Do Kyeong's guarded personality was frustrating, and yet I was completely empathetic towards him. The banter in the beginning was fun, their chemistry is perfect, the intensity of their intimacy got me in the feels, and they have the best KDrama kisses EVER. Seriously... ever. No need to fear them touching lips together while standing awkwardly. Eric plays repressed so well, that you would never think that he had it in him. I definitely swooned several times. I am a romcom fam, and have a lot of favorite couples, but they definitely leaped their way to the top couples on my list.

Then there is the rest of the cast. If I could give higher than 10 to some of the supporting cast I would.

Regular Hae Young's parents are the best parents in dramaland... FACT. The family moments were equally touching and laugh out loud funny. Kim Mi Kyung is just so good, and Lee Han Wi balanced her out perfectly. Any scene with them in it was automatically a good one.

The rest of the supporting cast were all 10s, or close enough, and there are way too many too mention, but shout out to the bromancemobile!

Jeon Hye Bin, and Lee Jae Yoon didn't have to rest of being attractive. They each had complicated characters who had me rooting against them while totally feeling sorry for them. I admit that I HATED Pretty Oh Hae Young, but that's because she played her part so well. Tae Jin was much more sympathetic, but both of them made the complicated love dilemma work well.

Kim Ji Suk, Heo Jeong Min, and Heo Young Ji all had very fun & memorable characters, but the true MVP of this whole drama to me is Ye Ji Won. She is my power animal! I had no idea, in her first scenes, how much I would end up adoring her character. Even If the story sucked, and the rest of the cast sucked, I would still be glued to the screen waiting to see what kind of shenanigans she would do next. I don't want to even slightly spoil any of her moments, because the surprise randomness of it is what makes it comic genius. I need to stalk her in something else. If you know of any dramas where she is particularly awesome, please let me know!

I already mentioned rewatch value, but just to be clear, I am tempted to rewatch the whole thing right now. I'll try to wait longer before I watch it again, but I will, without a doubt, be watching it all again... and again.

The music is now my one of my favorite OSTs. I listen to certain songs over and over and never get tired. What Is Love is too cute, and I love that Seo Hyun Jin is singing! Ben's Like a Dream started playing in a store and had me singing along like I know the words... no, I do not speak Korean, much less sing in Korean. Maybe I by Roy Kim is like musical crack. Needless to say, the OST is really good.

Overall, I don't know what I am going to do with my Mondays & Tuesdays now that it's over. I rarely watch on air dramas, but I am so glad I watched this one. I think it was worth it from beginning to end, and yes I did like the ending, but I won't say too much about it other than that I thought it was... in it's own way... perfect ; )

So yes I recommend it very highly. I think a romcom hater, or a melodrama hater, or a suspense hater could all agree that there is surprisingly a little something for everyone. I also loved the message at the end.

Now excuse me while I make some room for this drama, and it's cast on my favorites lists.

In the end I'm very glad about my drama trade I did with another MDL user because it made me watch this little gem, that I surely would have never touched on my own. The summary and the promotional covers never piqued my interest.

There are so many things that I love about this story. First of all is the idea in itself. They did a pretty good job with explaining the read more visions, making them convincing without making it look too much out of space. With the same pace Do Kyung was getting an idea of what was actually happening to him, it made me understand it step by step, too.

The way the romance was emerging. From the original setup to the new one. Well explained and real. I got a pretty good feel of how deep their emotions were growing and I liked the idea of "fate" here. I loved how that whole relationship was developing, even though they sometimes seemed a little foolish. But that's what love actually is, right? Acting against all logic and not getting bothered about other people's opinions. What makes you really happy and how do you want to spend that one life you got?

I was dying with pleasure seeing all that skinship. It felt comfortable and real and made me very, very happy. When it seemed like their pent up emotions were finally exploding, I felt the same. I'm a sucker for hugs and here are so many tight embraces that I wish I had someone near me who would hug me just at the same time, lol. And their kisses... Don't get me started with those. All these things are one big part of what made this romance so intense and beautiful.

The acting was very impressive. Eric blew me away. His character drew me in to a point where I couldn't stop but root for him all the way, no matter what he did. I saw his remorse, I felt his misery and I enjoyed his approach to slowly change himself and become happy, no matter the outcome. Same goes for Seo Hyun Jin. Her despair, her hunger for love and her feeling of betrayal of life itself were crushingly unfeigned.

There is some really strong writing in this drama. Some dialogues had a big impact on me and made my heart flutter all of a sudden so many times. The story did a pretty good job at riling up my emotions in every way possible.

I also loved the side stories. Interesting characters even though some of them were a little exaggerated. I enjoyed them nevertheless. Do Kyung's sister was one hell of a person. Her on/ff modes were hilarious but what I loved the most was that no matter what, she stuck to her family, supporting them in her own way whether blood-related or not and was always like a guardian. I also loved Hae Young's parents. Although her mother was really, REALLY stubborn towards the end, I enjoyed the time when she was silently giving in, showing that she truly loved her daughter and wanted her to be happy.

About the two second leads here...
Well, I didn't really care for their stories while watching the drama. Now, at the end... Well, of course they had their reasons for behaving the way they did. The other Oh Hay Young... as the story went on, her character became more palpable and explained some things, but it didn't change the fact that I couldn't care less. She had her chance, she blew it. End of story. Han Tae Jin... same goes for him and on top of that he was a petty loser. He couldn't accept the facts, acting all childish, throwing one tantrum after another. Do Kyung and him both did wrong. But at the point where Do Kyung realized his mistake, Tae Jin blamed others and continued his raving, staying blinded by his anger.

The ones I disliked till the end were Do Kyung's mom and Chairman Jang. No further explaining. Just stating that fact.

If there's one thing to complain about, it would be the dragging in the middle and until ep 16. I know that every scene and every moment were important for the story and can't be considered fillers. But I still think that they could have made some things a little shorter and not putting me in such agony >.< (although it makes you wonder if I would have gotten riled up about it with the same intensity, if they HAD made it shorter, right? Haha...)

In the end a very, very enjoyable roller-coaster with many memorial moments. Lots of emotions, lots of ups and downs and very satisfying in the end.

These two dramas have completely different plot. One talks about a man who can see the future and two girls have the same name while the other about low and solving some mysteries. On the other hand, the romance, the ost and the comedy parts of these two have the same vibs. The main leads have so much chemistry even in the bts. There's some similarities too, like the man lead didn't have so great past , then the female lead came and turned his life upside down. I think if you love one of them you will enjoy the other .
Recommended by Banada6
Both dramas are laugh out loud in their comedy but still hits the right spot to make your heart ache at times. I love both for being an all-out comedy in the that IT IS a romcom. Characters in both dramas are so real, you get embarrassed on their behalf.

    I re-watched this again about a month ago and it holds up! I liked it just as much this time as I did the first!

    The first time I watch this, I'm in a great mood and my thought for this drama is so funny and romantic.

    But for the second time, I barely laugh. I just laughed at some jokes, but most of it I was crying.

    Why? I'm in a bad mood, I was lonely, and I was heartbroken. I don't really understand at first when people said that people who just broke up can't watch this show, because for me it was funny, cute, and the fact one of my weakness is push and pull kind of relationship. After watching it for the second time, I realized that most of the characters have their own pain and it was so painful to watch I always cried. The golden star here for me is Park Soo Kyung. She always seems tough but she's painful inside. Oh God, it's just so relatable for me because every day I acted like that, but at night I always cried. If my alcohol tolerance high, I'll definitely be a heavy drinker and I would drink every day too to forget about everything and not ever getting sober again....

    Don't even start with Han Tae Jin. Even with him I always wanna cry, because I could feel how he felt. It wasn't his fault, it wasn't supposed to happen, everything wasn't supposed to happen at all, and I'm very sad the fact they can't blame anyone, it so painful to watch. The pretty OHY too, ah everyone is so miserable. I always feel sad on every scene.

    Now I understand why this drama is actually kinda dark. Even tho it's a romantic-comedy, I can feel that this show is a mellow inside.

    So, if u have time to kill to read this comment, if u actually just broke up or feel lonely, don't. This drama just making u more sad and heartbroken. Me too I was very regretting the minute I could relate to all of the characters but it was sooo good I can't stop watching :")

    My name is also too common.. so i can related to the female lead situation.. =(

    And Ji Suk is really a trouble maker... hahahahha~ :D

    I'll try to highlight some key points i found good or bad.
    Negative:
    - It didn't really move me considering it being a melodrama.
    - I disliked the personality of Kyeongs mother and Tae Jin to a point that I felt like skipping some scenes.
    - Some character decisions and behavior patterns just didn't make sense to me.
    - It was a bit hard for me to relate to the whole plot around marriage, probably because of cultural difference and my point of view that marriage is merely tax reduction.
    Positive:
    - I think the acting was really good especially Hyun Jin's.
    - The kissing scenes were extremely good. Did they kiss for real or fake it because it sure looked real?
    - I did dislike the story a bit towards the middle but they summed everything up well at the end.

      Hyun Jin is the center of this drama and she is acting like one..While there are always other characters in dramas which don't sound interesting but they support the character of main leads..
      However, i find it hard to wrap my around this singular feeling of a female Lead, when she falls in love with the boy she tends to forget her pride, honor etc. but in this case her character approves this since normal OHY is a pitifull one..

    am I the only one that thinks the "just Oh Hae Yeong" is prettier than the "pretty Oh Hae Yeong"?
    I mean if you want to make a character prettier than the other don't pick one that wouldn't look prettier
    not to be mean I do think they're both extremely pretty but one is indeed prettier than the other

      Her acting skills are off the chart..especially when she turns off her sad mode to suddenly turn on her happy mode..

      Hm I think in terms of sex appeal the pretty one was indeed better looking and in combination with the character backgrounds considered prettier. The "normal" OHY is objectively not as attractive IMHO but her whole character was more attractive as a whole. The most important part of a woman's body is the face for me and the "normal" OHY face and facial expressions really enchanted me. Hence I can understand why someone might think the pretty OHY wasn't really prettier. It pains me a bit but I have to sum it up with one simple word once again: "subjective."

    I really REALLY disliked the leads of this drama, which is so rare for me, because i usually love all sorts of female leads especially, but instead i found myself rooting for the second female lead (not to get together with the main lead mind you i thought he was horrible) and wanting to see more of her ...

    I always see this in recommendations.. And I'm quite hesitant to watch it. But I give it a try after watching Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim because I was truly mesmerize with Seo Hyun Jin's acting..I'm happy that I give it a try because I'm now in love with this show.
