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.

    Wanted to watch this on dramafever but only 2 episodes are available for free the rest are premium so I would have to pay. Is this Dramafever's new thing now where only premium members can watch their exclusive drama? Cause it used to be that episodes were exclusive for premium users for 1 week and then was free to the public. Is it not like this anymore?

      Yea it sucks. Even viki does that too. I stopped using dramafever and viki but luckily there are sites that upload dramas where you can watch for free. You can watch this at dramafire

    over used cliche plots are the best when it's done right with good looking leads that have great chemistry ;)

    They need to clone this director. Something About 1%, My Secret Romance...this kind of romcom realism is what kdrama needs.

      That's my guess. Sort of a lite version of Loving, Never Forgetting. I'm betting on some good feels later on. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    This is what I needed. A little risqué, lighthearted and fun. I missed when K-Drama used to be so straightforward and happy, if they ever were. So far it's light on the angst and heavy on the OTP which is great and I like that it doesn't shy away from usually taboo things in K-Drama. I love that dramas are starting to take this new turn where the guy is super into the girl and not just the cold tsundere all the time. I also love the artist that does the opening and would love to know his name

      Maybe because of the South Korean presidential election. Not sure, though.
