However, her read morestudent-teaching assignment finds her not only working at the high school that Cha's family owns, but teaching his homeroom class.

I only started watching this because a friend of mine was watching. I initially thought the whole thing would be too silly for me, but I was hooked after the first episode. I absolutely loved the chemistry between Jung Il Woo, and Lee Chung Ah, and I felt ashamed for rooting for them. I can't say enough good things about Jung Il Woo in this. He took a cliché character, and brought read more some depth & charm to the role. Lee Ki Woo was also incredibly sweet in his role, and I developed a little crush on him while watching.

The story is pretty standard, but the cast took a predictable scenario and made it fun to watch. There are many KDramas with similar love triangles, but the over the top characters, and humor, kept the episodes fresh. There are quite a few "poop" jokes that remind you not to take this drama too seriously. There are also quite a few rewatchable romantic moments. I found all the episodes so entertaining, that the time always seemed to fly by. The final episode was a bit weird, but I loved that all the great supporting characters got to have a real finale scene.

This really was a great, lighthearted, romantic comedy that I would definitely watch again.

A very youthful, lighthearted romantic comedy, with minimum melodrama and lots of laughs!

Even though Jung Il Woo is pretty much the star of the show, he is well and truly part of a tightknit ensemble cast that have great chemistry together. Each character of the ensemble have their own quirky personality traits, and their own obstacles (personal or otherwise) to overcome as the show progresses.

The Ramyun Shop is used very read more effectively as the one thing that holds all of them together. Truly a family away from real family.

Both series start with a conflict between a teacher and her student. In both series the student starts to have feelings for the teacher.

Can't get enough of Jung Il Woo? Check him out in this drama. He is just as adorably annoying as he was in C4K.

    This drama makes me laugh so freaking much. Seriously! The story isn't great but just the interactions among the cast is what makes it. Very light hearted drama.

    this drama had the potential to be a lot more than it is. im not saying it's bad, in fact there were two instances where it made me cry, but the ending was very vague and left you feeling very unsatisfied and curious about a lot of important matters. i just wish they had wrapped up the drama as nicely as they'd started it.

    For the people who think of this drama as underrated: can you recommend me some dramas? I have this stupid habit of checking the MDL ratings before watching a drama, and I hate to think that I might be missing other gems like this one...

      A few more: Dalja's Spring & Witch's Romance, literally perfect dramas with practically nothing to complain about at all.. (in my pov, of course, but also re: "general cliches" - they're almost non-existent in these) & that's really rare! ^-^

      i agree with you! i always check the ratings, they are mostly 7 or 6 but when i watch them i would rate them higher, most dramas which are rated 7 or 6 are really underrated!! i also check the comments and the reviews, but when everyone hates the drama and the rating is bad , i just don't dare watch it, knowing that it might be a good one, and i might like it...

    One of the funniest dramas I've ever watched. The exact type of romcom I like. Hilarious, sexy and with food in it. Jung Il Woo oppa was acting so well and cute! I literally couldn't avoid falling in love with him. ♥

    P.S.: This drama taught me how to make ramyun, haha~
