Her wedding photographer, Park Moo-yeol, is a rich playboy who helps Eun-jae avoid embarrassment by pretending to be her husband. Soon after Moo-yeol's family goes bankrupt. The family home will be sold if he can't come up with money quick. Eun Jae meanwhile is convinced that if she read morebecomes wealthy Young Hoon will come back to her.
Eun-jae and Moo-yeol decide to join forces. They move in together and invest in moneymaking schemes one after the other. Making money unfortunately isn't as easy as they had hoped.

I liked this drama. It had good acting even though the male lead was kinda a wimp. Letting a girl kick ur ass all the time is just sad. I liked that Miss Kim was a strong woman and took care of business. I really enjoyed that the story flowed well and that the characters were interesting especially when they interacted to develop relationships. Those of u that watch this will enjoy it.

This is one of those dramas that never got much recognition but is wickedly good once you into it. I remember I didn't even plan to watch it but got hooked after checking the first episode. Actually, it's not that special anymore but back in the days, such strong female characters and "weak" male characters weren't that popular.

The drama is generic yet fresh and different. There are slow and boring moments read more but mostly the show keeps a nice pace and has good dynamics, the balance between comedy and seriousness is really good. The acting, well... at first it seemed like the worst acting ever but the characters grew on me quite a lot and after finishing the drama I missed it right away. Some of the characters were ridiculous to the point it was actually hilarious and I guess, it's better not to take this drama too seriously. There is a certain brilliance to this whole drama if you ca get past the fact that it's completely ridiculous. All in all, the plot and everything in it was pretty realistic too.

Ah, and the chemistry! The chemistry! The chemistry between miss Kim and Moo Yeol is great, actually near the perfection. When they are together they are whole and when they are apart something is missing. Though, from the very beginning, they were a bit too comfortable with each other considering they had just met. And I'm surprised there is not contract dating and such, I was sure there will be one but actually, the dating thing wasn't important at all.

Both heroines are kind-hearted and wronged, but plunge through and turn lemons into lemonade. (Kim quite literally). Also, both have a quiet, sunshine quality, though Attic Cat has better characters and Ms. Kim has more comedy and faster plot.

    After seeing their chemistry in I Have a Lover I am tempted to check out this drama

    why the rating are so low for this show, if you are into rom-com and hate those pity girls who get victimized all the time and those cocky male leads, then opt for this show, this show puts forward a story of a couple who tries to resolve their issues by working together and both have their own qualities, just loved this show ;)

      I've noticed that a lot of older gems don't get the ratings they deserve on this site and I'm really not sure why. I know they're not as popular, but this drama really is an old fav of mine so it's weird to see how many rated it a 6 or 7...
