Eric has a different feeling that make you wanna watch him. His acting is not amazing but he is good. Han Ye Seul is pretty and she is good at acting. But I think she needs work on her facial expressions more. She use only one for shocked, frustared, sad and angry!

Drama keeps repeating itself all over. it seems like happy ending but a problem come up; they solve the problem, read more again seems like happy ending *DININININ* -evil background music- another similar problem come up! Only one villian cause so many problems. They can create different problems or they can choose someone else to cause problems for lead actor & actress.

Thay can make this show 14-16 episodes and just finish it smoothly. Ending was good but it could be better!

So many stellar. Yes they need advirsement. Eric use his own drama for his own group = fair enough. But using them so much ANNOYING! I'm trying to watch a drama here!

Hello there, past addiction for the past few months! This drama is ridiculously good, and ridiculously bad at the same time. How can that be? As much as I love our main character, I can't even tell you how many times I was hell bent on throwing objects at her via computer screen. At the same time, she's lovable, quirky and extremely clueless, which is how most heroine's are. Did I mention read more she kicks ass, like literally? There's a love triangle and I honestly can't tell you who I was really rooting for, but all in all, I was content with the ending. There's annoying secondary characters (like all dramas) but they sort of turn out to be lovable. LOVED IT. Must watch, for serious.

They both have that cross of action and romantic comedy. I kept thinking that Rain should have been casted for this part, though I loved Eric Mun.

All the surrounding and circumstances are different, but the feelings between the main couples (the "type" of love) in these two dramas seem similar to me. They start out with almost enemy like relationship, the man treats the woman sometimes really badly... but the girl in both dramas is the type who can take it all and some more, very strong girls both of them. Both pairs also end up in a difficult situation later on where they need to decide how much they can give up for their love.

    I liked this drama. I don't get why many people think it was bad. It wasn't that bad.

    I agree with all the negative it was kind of a waste of time , I dropped it in 5 episode and still felt I l lost those 4 hours. Save yourself the trouble unless you just like looking at Eric but there's other dramas for that.

    How does this have such a high rating? It was pretty bad. I thought it was a spy parody. The fight scenes were hilariously bad along with the special effects. And what was with that random car explosion at the end? Yea because cars just explode when they crash. And they didn't even explain where Choi and Myung were for a year. So stupid.

    Would have dropped it if Eric wasn't in it.

    I found this drama boring in some scenes but I enjoyed the sweet romance between the couple (Eric Mun and Han ye seul).

    One of the worst KDrama I have ever watched. It's starts off great, then notsogreat, then really really really bad. You were warned. It makes no bloody sense whatsoever. So stupid. I can't believe I actually finished it.

    Great show overall, the acting was pretty good and I got attached to the 2 main actors. I'm sad they haven't done anything since this series ended. The bad points are the last few episodes felt a little stretched with some useless and repetitive scenes, I mean how many times do you need to try to escape/get captured/leave the country, I think the 2 episode extension from 16 to 18 episodes was not necessary. Also a big change of mood happened, from E1-12 the show is more of a Rom-Com then changes to more of a Melo-Rom for the next episodes, but in the end it came back a little to Rom-Com. But these bad points dont change the fact that this is one of my favorite series and im really hoping to see more from the 2 main actors.

    I love "Han Ye Seul" but hated "Han Myung Wol" for deceiving and playing with a mans heart. I felt like killing her so many times by somehow magically appearing in the drama. I've seen melodramas, tragedies but I have never been so irritated by a drama like this. I don't know if it's because this drama is that good or just junk. You just gonna have to decide yourselves. Duration of this drama has been like a love–hate relationship for me. I just couldn't let go of the fact how cute, adorable and sexy "Han Ye Seul" was throughout this drama.
