This is one of the dramas I would like to binge watch just because 2 episodes per week ain't enough. It's a very typical kdrama romance, but very light on the angst so it's very enjoyable to watch. I never expected much from the leads. I've only seen SungHoon in Noble, my love and I'm not impressed with the acting there but he is a surprise in MSR, he improved alot in read more the acting department and I especially liked the way his eyes expressed how he feels during the last part of the ep 1, the one night stand. I felt that the acting on both leads made the scene passionate but less racy. The story so far is fast moving, no unnecesaary scenes (the beauty of 12 episodes).
I recemmend this to those looking for a romcom with great kissing scenes.

I am writing this review after watching 4 episodes. It is funny and there is not a moment of boredom. Every episode had made me laugh. The actors have good chemistry. So, if you want to watch a funny, romantic and a cool drama this one is for you.

This drama is fantastic and romantic, but is not cliche.
The man is cute and girl afraid of relationships.

The male leads give off the same vibe. Lie to Me the male lead is a bit more stiff. The female leads are somewhat similar. Also the second male leads are similar. My Secret Romance is like a more light hearted version.

    I've never seen a drama with so many slow-mo-scenes before.

    This is such a cliché drama yet still strangely entertaining.

      I literally said that today as I was watching it. I think the reason it works is because the drama doesn't take itself too seriously and you can tell the actors are having fun they are not stiff

    A light romcom, definitely not for those into complex romances (such as those w dark themes, etc.). I watched this drama for Sung Hoon and I love it so far! I am happy that OCN tackled this genre, because I love OCN's crime drama, and I didn't expect that a romcom from them would be great too.

    I'm trying to hold off and watch when more episodes are out so I can have a nice friday of binge watching but it's so hard when the reviews are so good!! Should I go ahead and start or wait until it's almost done?

      It is silly & cheesy but rather witty & cute, plus I'd say Sung Hoon is more than worth watching & certainly qualifies as something good LOL
