Great fashion has to start somewhere. 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. Anna Choi, a brassy woman read morewho will let nothing stand in the way of what she wants, and privileged hunk Jung Jae Hyuk create a double love triangle.

This drama is basically filled with eye candy whether you are a girl or boy. The fact that the ending was literally the worst drama ending (regardless of coupling biases) of all time kind of affected my review ratings!! The story keeps you anticipated and guessing plus Yuri did an okay job considering it was her first time. Truly, the storyline in the beginning was really good with like a modern Cinderella read more feel. If you don't mind getting heavily disappointed in the end then go ahead and watch this drama.

Ok, this drama was a colossal waist of time!
it seemed promising at the beginning but it all went to hell from there! The plot Dragged on for what seem like eternity, so much that I was skipping through the episodes. And don't get me started about the characters. They were so inconsistent I had no idea what to expect from each character.

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

it's simmilar how the 2 guys are crazy for the lead but summer's desire is way better though

    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.

      enjoying it wasnt the problem, the ending was the big issue
