So how would I describe this show? This story tried to be too much. It was a romance mixed with slapstick humor, and dark thriller. How did those elements combine? Not too well, actually....but the parts that were good were good enough to keep me watching until the end.

This show started off strong and I was loving it up until about a little over halfway, when it dawned on me that read more the story was just kind of nonsense. But the leads are so freaking adorable (and probably every teenage girl's dream fantasy romance) that they kept sucking me back in every week. I said the other day that I didn't think I'd had a girl crush on anyone in a show yet, but Park Bo Young may have reached that status for me. And Park Hyung Shik is almost too pretty - but his acting as Ahn Min Hyuk crushing on Do Bong Soon --- I just "can't even" with him. Too cute for words. They were so cheesy together, but this ahjumma was eating it up. Seriously....this romance is what the show has going for it. But even that is unrealistically done. This show is just fluff....lots and lots of fluff.

The story line is chaotic. There is an evil villain that is just too horrifying to be in a rom-com. It was very jarring to go from sweet romance scenes to a creepy masked kidnapper who is terrorizing young women. And the slapstick antics of the gangsters and the high-school gangsters and the screechy femme planning team leader was funny the first time but became just useless filler that was pretty annoying fast forward material. And a lot of people hated that, although played for laughs, the mom seemed abusive (may be why the writers tried to explain that one away in the final episode.) There were funny parts, sure, but they overplayed their hand with them quite a bit.

The only thing I would rewatch in this show is the moments with Min Hyuk and Bong Soon.

Would I recommend it....sort of. I mean, you'd have to know going in that the story makes no sense, but as a backdrop for a super cute, cheesy beyond belief romance...if you can deal with that then, yeah, go for it. I was entertained for sure (otherwise the rating would be like a 4). But if you need a plot that is logical and a more 'mature' (not THAT kind of mature, but more grown up) romance, then this one won't be right for you.

Okej that the first thought that comes to mine mind when somebody asks about this drama. Just ok.

Cute, charming actors... relatively satisfied with their performance.
The story itself had a few flaws, but it's nice for a change that the female is strong enough not to be pulled by her wrist.

Well, good to past time when you have nothing else to watch. I don't know what but something is missing

Where the boy sees her doing something (gaming) and falls in interest with her. This is a good feel movie, that has the same love interest feeling like the others. Good Watch, with the same cheesy love.

Both deal with the male lead being in love with the female lead and she falling for him.
Though there are no supernatural elements, and the characters are in high school and not adults. Both have similar in the way the characters fall for one another. I found the movie cute and refreshing, the first I watched it, and while watching this drama, I got the same feeling behind the love story.

    I think I'm one of those who's don't understand the hype about this drama, it's looking promising at first, a lot of laughing but then the storyline goes MEH and the ending kinda make me wanna scream "WHAT THE H***?".
    PHS and PBY make a great chemistry though and can easily make it to list one of cutest OTP.

    This could have been a great Kdrama Rom-Com because the leads had it in them but unfortunately the writers decided to add a thriller plot that was poorly done and added some random side characters who got a lot of screen time for no reason...
    I liked the main leads, I liked that for once he was the son of a former gangsta and not another chaebol family, I liked that she isn't a poor girl saved from her miserable life by the rich guy, I LOVED her mom...
    So much potential wasted unfortunately...too bad.

    a great refreshing story for a romcom and I simply love everything about the female and the male lead!! sometimes just plain random, especially the side stories, and there's sweetness sparkling out of every corner ~ * ~ * a bit too much for me at times ^^° I believe a story about women's empowerment with so much cuteness is something only Asian drama can pull off.

    This is one of my favorite couples!
    I loved this drama in the beginning, including the comedy. Unfortunately from the middle to the end it was full of annoying filles scenes and I didn't like most of the characters; If you skip the fillers the experience is better.
