And for aspiring designer Kang Young Gul, that somewhere is in a humble stall at the Dongdaemun Market, a crowded fashion district in Seoul known for its cheap clothing and wannabe designers. Young Gul is a little timid about pursuing his dreams to become a famous designer, until he meets Lee Ga Young, a confident young woman who shares his aspirations.

This drama definitely has good actors and they did a really good job. *thumps up*
BUT the screenwriter just wrote some bulls***. (sorry)
Well first of I liked the beginning, but then the story just slowly developed into a really elongated triangle love conflict. Where the girl is going back and forth from Young Gul to Jae Hyuk. Until the end she (for me ) suddenly chooses the other one.

It's not read more really about fashion a lot or not at all. There were only a few sequences about fashion and everyone had to do with fashion, but that's already all it had to do with fashion.
Well maybe I'm too dumb or skipped to much but the ending was kind of confusing.
Just watched it again and it made sense but it was still one of the worst endings I ever saw.

Overall Yuri's acting was really good for a singer turned actress. And all the others were excellent too. But I wouldn't recommend this drama.

When I begin to watch the drama I don't was agree with review but badly now i'm a little agree.

The story can be so good, we have good casting, espacially I really love two boy, Yoo ah in and Lee ji Hoon.

I think the problem, for me, was not in the plot but the length of drama. From episode 12 that was repetitive and a little boring.

The acting of read more the character Lee Ga Young ( I don't say the actress but the characters) was a little chiant, Lee Ga young don't evolved.

The music wasn't bad but not very good like OST of other drama, it's a popular OST and I don't very like.

Oww I the end... Too bad, it's impossible !! Why like that, why ??
It is too far-fetched, not realistic enough!

So I don't want to say anymore because i'm going to post spoiler and I don't want ...

both have the same female lead- she is almost the same in both dramas. both have complicated emotions not traditional in kdramas.

    Yes I agree Ako ... also the main character's personality turning trashier than it already is, another reason .
    You watched this laaaaaaater so you didn't watch it like us from the beginning week by week, you also sound like you read reviews before so that help you lower your expectations unconsciously ....

      The end is bad so of course we could say it's a waste of time only for this reason but it began to be really bad around episode 10 so I don't think the end is the only thing to blame

    Am I the only one who actually kinda enjoyed this drama? xD It was actually pretty good....except for the main character (she was so annoying 100% of the time that you couldn't help but to wish you could go there and slap some sense into her brain) X_X

      No, I enjoyed it too as a guilty pleasure. I kept expecting (for some unknown reason) for it to get better. It had such potential but the writing was awful. They kept doing the same things.
