I'm torn with this drama: I loved more than half of it, but once it hit a certain point (around epi. 17) it never really recovered IMO. I love a good K-villain, but Kang Sun was a bit too cruel in the end. What saved the entire show for me was Ji Chang Wook's great acting & Tae Yang's optimism & work ethic, as well as the relationship between the Fresh Men. read more I didn't mind Jin Shim as much until she decided to stick by Kang Sun's side once the truth came out. I lost all respect for her after that. I loved In Beom; I'm glad he didn't accept KS's crap anymore. Overall, the show was nice but all over the place in the end. I enjoyed the tender/goofy moments but found some of the melodrama to be a bit much. Honestly, if you want to watch a better drama with a similar plot line I HIGHLY recommend the stellar "Can You Hear My Heart"!

First and most i watched this Drama from the reviews it got and i thought why not try it. Here it goes.

The Story: A story about a boy who wanted to make his dreams come true of owning a store. This individual goes through a lot of problems (involving rich chebole family) throughout the drama what happens well i will leave that for you to see :)

Actors,apart from the supporting read more actors the main once seem to be a bit awkward between each other. Han Tey Hang gave it all his when it comes to the emotional scenes and you could feel his pain and suffering, but for Jin Shim it felt like dry wood to be honest i didn't connect with her at ALL.

Overall: After episode 20 this drama just took forever to get to the point and when it did, it left me scratching my head. I fely like i missed a whole episode. I think the writer was trying to hard in my opinion to reach that melo-dramatic-over-the-top story line. It was funny at times but i kind of wished i didn't waste my time on it :( enjoy and let me know if i made the wrong judgement of this drama.

Both are dramas about a young man that endures many hardships and setbacks as he pursues his dreams, but always remains optimistic and never gives up.

    Ji Chang Wok as well as most of the other excellent cast made this otherwise very confused drama watchable. (Although I feel that Wang Ji Hye was miscast). All unfortunately were however let down by the scriptwriter(s) / producer(s) who could obviously not quite decide what genre this drama was meant to be.

    I liked this drama but I think they should've cut it to 20 eps. There was some dragging in the middle...

    I dont see how this drama dragged.... like one of the reviews above there's basically two different stories being told at the same time between the two main characters. Each character I think was played well. AND off course this is a tv drama, they're always going to add more dramatic and sarcastic things when being based on real life stories. But in comparison to dramas in general it was good. This 24 ep drama was gradually told from start to finish compared to 16 ep dramas where they mostly cramp all the important stuff in like the last couple episodes.

    This is like an old style drama, there's an evil mother that you couldnt understand how her crazy mind is working and other annoying characters. But i love the main couple love story and also how ji chang wook achieved success ;)

    The beginning was so good with the childhood parts! I started to watch this because of Shin Won Ho, but after Park Soo Jin appeared it was very annoying, I really dislike her... Her speaking and such. She was annoying in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho too... (sorry fans). Dropped it too.

    Had to drop this drama. Too much of a drag for me. I really loved the beginning and JCW's acting, but I didn't like the progression of the story.

    I would have given it a 9 if the ending didn't drag on and on and on and on and on. A few loose ends, but all in all a decent ending. Still just an 8 for me though.

    There was so much more I wanted from the ending but it still ended pretty good.
