The story line of this drama/sitcom wasn't the best, I did want to know more about it but couldn't be bothered to watch all 10 episodes- the only reason I kept watching this is because I'm a fan of Choi Minho (I'm guessing 98% of the watchers are Shawols, just like me). The actors couldn't really do a good jobs with this drama, I've seen many of them in different movie/dramas and read more they were great- it's just that they couldn't do anything amazing with the badly written story line, non of the characters were realistic and that annoyed me. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend you wasting your time with this drama unless you are very, very, very (and I mean extremely) bored.

SGG is not a romance, but the moods of the dramas are similar: both dramas are comedies and evolve in a town and around a group of friend/a family

    This drama is ridiculous, and the key to enjoy it is to just embrace its ridiculousness. Oh Dal-soo and Im Won-hee are such a hoot!

    This is the first drama I dropped because I couldn't stand the acting. It was horrible

      I understand completely. I could only stand it because of SHINee appearing in it.

    Whoa. How come I came across this drama only now?!
    I have a question though. Is it like the Korean version of Bloody Monday(Which I absolutely adore by the way)? Although, the plot and all is really different, but...

    this was way better than I thought it would be, I started watching just for Minho and not only was his character super cute (and man did he look hot also) but the story was really funny and enjoyable

    Oh and in like episode 6 I think it was, when Minho gets drunk and wakes up the next morning wearing a couple's tee and has like 4 girlfriends come over by far the best part of the series =]

      I also started it for Minho, and I was really surprise because it was so funny.
      Minho has some karma with serious roles who get crazy after some drops of alcohol, like Tae Joong in TTBY ^^

    Don't hate me for saying this... I didn't like it! I wanted to give it shot, because it was different.. And only to find out that Choi Minho was in it, this was of course a good surprise.. But the rest of it, didn't catch me!

      If you like a good comedy, I recommend it, honestly. I mean, I know I haven't finished yet but that is partially because I'm a little flaky (my currently watching list.. mostly things I've been "currently watching" for months hahah) But yeah. Lots of laughs, even if it's not an expertly done drama, it's still worth seeing.
