A story about Hwan Dong, majoring in film and is preparing for his graduation project as a movie director. His script wins a grand prize, but he faces difficulty after difficulty while trying to finalize the film. He asks his ex-girlfriend Hye Jung to play the main role in his production, who is understandably surprised at his bold request.

Great drama! Now let's start with the review!
The story - The plot was great and this drama was a great idea! But i have to be honest, that the writer and the director of this drama failed! I think everyone else did their job perfectly. The story itself is very good and i loved it ,but it was going more slowly than i expected ,so when the drama ended i was read more like "Wait it ended?". The story was more focused on the romance than anyting else which i didn't like. I was more interested in the movie making process.
Acting/Cast - The cast was a 10/10, some of the actors that appreared helped this drama becoming a succsess and not flopping. The main leads were perfect, and so were all the other actors. D.O was the reason i watched this drama because i was interested to see how he will do in a comedy-romance and i'm glad he did well it was funny to see him funny for once XD! I was suprised to see Lee Jong Suk's family in "W" being in this drama i recognized them when i saw who was playing the father lol!
Music- Was it just me or the music for this drama was so calming. I really liked the music but when i listened to it, i couldnt help but ask myself why didnt they make D.O sing some good songs for this drama, were they that short on money that they cant pay a good songwriter. If this drama really is for some kind of commercial for phones i can understand why they didnt invest as much as for a normal drama. So if that's true they did great...
Rewatch Value - I would watch it again of course! Why not! Considering soon i'm gonna be a university student - 8hours a day watching k drama's, like i do now?...impossible... so this drama is perfect for college or university students who cant afford to watch even 1 episode of k drama a day.
I strongly recommend this drama, i know i will watch it again.
Overall- This kind of plot is not for a short web drama. If it was 20 episodes the drama could have been better. But i liked it anyway. Its perfect for people who dont have the time to watch the 60 minute long episodes of regular drama's. I really hope the cast can act together again in some other drama because the chemistry and acting was great! If you are thinking of watching, it you should, because for a short drama its great!!!

Honestly, I only watched this one for Do Kyungsoo, as he's one of my favourite actors. However, here, his performance was really bad. Maybe the whole romantic concept isn't his thing. But the story didn't help either. Sure, the main story sounds very interesting, but the final result was bad. Maybe the execution was poor, and that kind of ruined the drama. Okay, I've been too hard on this one, so I read more may add here that there were some cute parts. But, overall, the performances were so-so to bad, the story was not good, the music is easily forgetable and this drama gets 3.5 out of 10 from me.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Both are about ex-couples making films together and their 'reunion'.
Recommended by Klaudia
Both lead characters were very much alike; a kind of awkward boy with a great sense of humor, which was amazingly executed by the actors.

Both dramas also have the same kind of feeling to them; sweet and quite down to earth.

I can't really explain it, but just trust me on this one ^^

    I think it was very enjoyable but the format of it was wrong. I feel like it would be much better if it was a 2-episode special

    I'm probably 100% biased as a Kyungsoo fan, but I loved every single minute of him acting like an adorkable drama king and the chemistry with Chae Soo Bin was super lovely and cute~ Especially the last scene! The theme was quite good as well.

    Cute and funny, it fits really well this type of short story. All the actors were pretty good and natural! Watched for Kyung Soo and I was really impressed with how he portrayed the easy-going Hwan Dong. Now I wanna see his acting in Hyung, a totally different character. (:

    I never thought Kyungsoo was capable of being such a dork and so openly funny without being cringey but he proved me wrong! I'm glad to see him in another drama. Also Chae Seo Jin did a fantastic job! Her character could have easily come across as annoying and childish but never did. I loved the chemistry between the main couple and the bromance just as much! Still haven't finished because I just don't want to let go as it's so cute and short.

    A very nice short film, under an hour. I watched for D.O. I am never disappointed. It's obviously a motivational film. Towards the end our protagonist says in a voice over that his dreams or goals are not just his own, but his friends' and family's also. It's really true. Those who love you, your friends, your mom, your dad, whomever, are just as invested in your dreams as you are. Even if they are against them. Because those who love you worry about you, about as much as you do about yourself. Whatever it is that you are dreaming of, when you give up on it before fighting to obtain it, you not only fail yourself, you fail them too. Because they want you to succeed in whatever it is you are willing to fight for, willing to put yourself out there to achieve. Failure isn't not succeeding....it's quitting before giving yourself the chance to succeed or fail.

    This had some good actors in it but I fail to see any real point to this story. Like really, what was the aim or what they were trying to say with this?
    It should've been longer at least...

      I think it's actually just a short webdrama to promote Samsung phones. I vaguely remember seeing a V-app interview with the main actor, actress and director saying something along those lines.

      He always has been good at acting ^_^ Have you watched It's Okay That's Love? It's one of my favorite Korean dramas of all time and Kyungsoo's acting completely blew me away! I was so impressed especially because it was his first time acting in a drama.

      Yes, I watched him from the beginning and I know he was great, but I still think that he improved so much :)

      He's also really good in I Remember You. He plays a psychopathic murderer. Gave me chills...

    As it is with many web-dramas, it kind of seemed like there was more to be shown, more of the story to happen. I had expected for them to actually focus more on the movie shooting than the process of starting it. And some things somethimes seemed a little too rushed or sudden.
    However, overall, this was quite an enjoyable web-drama, Kyungsoo was excellent in his role, the acting of David Lee and Chae Seojin was enjoyable as well. I quite liked the dialogues as well and this is definitely great for a fun, quick watch. :)
