1-The reason I watched this : As a huge fan of Itazura Na kiss I was hunting down all the dramas adaptations, this was the 2nd adaptation after I saw the disappointing J-version.

2-Storyline/Plot : This drama cut many events from the manga; there were some changes from the original story but the plot was the same. The foolishness, the childish events, those happy romantic and sometimes sad dramatic moments were present read more which brought back a lot of memories from one of my favorite stories ever!
It was fun to see this adaptation even though I wasn't really dazzled since it lacked many important events.

3-Acting/Cast : I like Kim Hyun Joong because he's attractive but let's face it hes not that great as an actor plus his Beak Seung Jo's coldness really was exagerated sometimes yet it reminds me of Naoki's personality in the anime.
Although OH Ha Ni was a stupid stalker, I never found her character annoying (Probably because she's much better than Kotoko in the Jversion)
The supporting roles were really great especially Baek Seung Jo's mother; her character was really good to watch (a nice change from other evil mothers in Korean dramas) plus Bong Joon Gu and Oh Ha Ni's friends remind me of those from the anime.

4-The ending : Well, there is the YouTube Edition so this is not considered as an "end".
It would have been much bette if they extended it or made a second season because it didn't have much core like the Tw-version.

5-My impression: I felt the story of Itazura na kiss all over again and most importantly I was able to gorget about the J-version disappointment. Even though, I wanted it to be a little different but I didn't hate it.

6-Overall : If you are Itazura na kiss fan you need to watch this.
If you like rom-com then you may like this.
If you like seeing cute cast theb you would like this.

P.S : The korean version was a medium between the disappointing Japanese version and the marvelous Taiwanese version.

Funny how there's nothing really special about this, yet it's super cute to watch, even if they main characters have practically no chemistry together. They still make my heart pound in emphathetic angst at least once every episode. A little too long by the end (the second last episode was atrocious!), but overall a fun little watch. Honestly I thought I would hate this, but I found myself enjoying it against my will.

They both have the main characters live together then fall in love with each other.

In both dramas the girls main goals are to make the guy fall in love with them. But both guys are rude and reject them at the beginning. Both dramas are kinda cheesy but cute.

    terrible acting, okay chemistry, predictable plot, really annoying script, and a TON of cheese is what makes up Playful Kiss. Got through 3 and a half episodes before I had to drop it. Not recommended.

    I dunno, the manga was good because the main characters both changed a lot but this doesn't seem to be the greatest adaption.

    She was SO irritating and silly and I was going crazy like....PLEASE HAVE SOME PRIDE!! And he was so arrogant....!!
    The rain kissing scene was nice though. Maybe the only good thing in it...

    This is the only drama in my "dropped" list. Everybody has their own opinions, I know, but I don't understand how people can say things like "best romance ever" oh my god is the worst relationship I've ever seen the female character is annoying and doesn't have self-respect, and the main male character is really really really annoying and rude. No chemistry.

    Would not recommend this drama. No chemistry between the main characters, drama dragged on forever, and the acting was just okay.

    Too predictable, annoying, and slow.
    I wanted strong characters, I guess it's not for me.

    Please, don't waste your time watching this drama. I don't understand why they would cut so many scenes from the manga. Even if the scenes were included, it was so lacking (not funny or even meaningful) as compared to the Taiwanese ver. It Started With A Kiss. Not only that but the acting sucks as well. It was so bad that I had to skip some of the scenes. Oh, don't expect any chemistry between the lead characters. Not to mention, the characters development was so badly done. Never once was I convinced that Seung Jo loved Ha Ni. Yes, the school setting, houses etc. are very fancy looking as compared to all the other versions but that's one of the factors that ruined this drama for me. I just couldn't relate to the characters.

    If you really want to watch a live action of Itazura Na kiss, just go and watch It Started With A Kiss instead. Now, that's the right way to remake a drama.
