This drama is cute, warm-hearted drama. All the characters developed in their ways.

Kim Seul Gi performs this role well and this role seems to be easy one for her. Ahn Hyo Seop has potentials and I think he can improve further in the future. However, the main characters do not have that strong chemistry. Their chemistry is ok and natural.

The music is great.

This is worth watching drama.

I realize this was a short web series, but I don't think the story was well-developed. I was excited to watch this because, same as most others, I wanted to see Kim Seul Gi in a lead role. I wish it had been in something better than this.

Kim Seul Gi was adorable as usual, so her acting carried this show. Ahn Hyo Seop was just a pretty face without much substance, read more and the same for Yeon So Hee. Pretty much all of my acting points are given solely because of KSG.

I think the story really failed to teach the moral that it seemed to set out to do. I read that someone compared it to 'Shallow Hal', and in theory I thought that would have been a good comparison. However, the characters did not evolve much past the "beauty is everything" mindset. I think this story could have so much better, but the writers blew it. There were two good ways they could have handled the "true beauty is on the inside" moral, and they did neither. I was pretty frustrated with the main male lead and his character's basically non-existent growth. I feel like Mo Nan Hee had a tiny bit of growth, but only related to her own sense of self-worth and not in how she, herself, saw her object of desire. She was almost as superficial as the guy.

The music I didn't notice much, so it must have been serviceable.

I won't rewatch this.

Storylines differ but both take place at a university and both have the attractive guy falling for the conventionally unattractive girl.

KIM SEULGI! To be honest, nothing common for the plot line except that they are short drama/specials. But if you like Kim Seul GI's sass and cuteness you will definitely enjoy this two drama. Her chemistry with all the actors is like omg omg omg. give her a full drama pls (better with doo joon)

    Woaaah!! I just realized that Ahn Hyo Seop is the same dude that had a role in Splash Splash Love! Although I loved the main couple there I still secretly rooted him with her there!

    We are using the version that aired first, which is the online version. The online version is 21 episodes with a duration of 10-12 minutes.
    The 6-episode version is the version that aired on TV, which just combined the 21 episodes into 6 episodes.

    sounds like the American film shallow hal (a super shallow guy gains the ability to see a person's inner soul so he falls in love with someone he never would have: an over weight but wealthy woman. he sees a beautiful and charming model like woman and everyone doubts his interest/believes he is after her fortune because it is counter to his personality)

    this was really cute w/ a great message but seulgi isnt even ugly AT ALL which caused it to stray from the realism but i mean it is about a magic ring after all so its whatever i guess lmao
