Overall: A Gentleman’s Dignity one of the cutest Flower 40’s (F40') of all times and of course not a typical Korean drama. The storylines well written and delivered from the first episode till the last ones. Four friends, who are always protecting each others in whatever situations, always be there as true friend. One thing I need to tell, I never felt they’re 40’s while watching them. I will give them fair read more enough like 10/10 ^^, because they deserve it.

Acting: They’re having their own personalities in characters. DoJin as cool handsome lonely man, Taesan as warm hearted cingu, Yoon shy nerd cute attorney and Jungrok as hottest playboy on earth haha. Actually I just want to tell you guys that I’m smiling while typing these because they’re so funny haha jin jha funny, cheongmal. Kim Haneul and other 3 divas also doing very good job in supporting, although you saw these divas fighting each other sometimes, but I bet they fails to get on your nerves. Haha they’re pretty too. Each of opening episode you better get prepare because these F40’s will make you laugh like crazy except when Yoon’s wife death moment. X_x I didn’t realized I cried my tears out, those without word scenes really touch my heart deeply, I never cried that much after Secret Garden.

These F40’s really did excellent job in acting, flawless, cutest, funniest and great chemistry between cast especially Dojin, Taesan, Jungrok and Yoon. You’ll miss Dojin's Betty, Taesan cursing skills plus Hwak haha!!, Jungrok's ring and Yoon's nerd glass.. They made my day. AGD is mixed feelings drama, funny, sad, dreaming and desires, exciting and loving and this is really best romantic comedy ever aired. From my personal view, although ImMeahri can be irritates some times but I pity her. Her relationship with Yoon makes me cries so many times, cutest forbidden love story. The way Yoon hides his feeling towards her sometimes can be frustrating at a moment but luckily they live happily in the end.

Music: Every times I hear to High High, I just imagined the 4 of them gathered and making havoc everywhere. LOL. That song really makes my heart jumping exciting every times I listen to it and Jonghyun’s song called “ My Love” in acoustic version, omg he really has an angelic voice. So good sexy voice. I shares my video links. Enjoy it.

Re wath value: I did rewatched them and I will rewatch them after this, especially opening of each episode ^_______^. They’re cute.

Can't believe I haven't written a review on this gem! Here we go....!

Story: Simple, comical, romantic and to a point - mature. Love the 4 dudes and their antics. If "I Need Romance" is the female equivalent of "Sex & the City", then this here is the male equivalent of "101 ways of how to get under a woman's skirt - the blokey guide".... minus the emphasis on sex, of course. read more I love the little 'prologues' at the beginning of each episode. They are proof that men are just overgrown boys and they will always be up to something naughty! A well put together drama that ends well for everyone.

Acting/Cast: Whatdaya expect from veteran actors & actresses? Quality and believable acting of course! Even the young idol actors are not too stiff, but I must say that I am very relieved that they are not the main focus of this drama. They add a comical dimension to the drama without looking as if the writer was trying too hard on the comedy part of things. Well done!

Music: Nice OSTs worth downloading.

Rewatch value: High - simply because the episodes can be stand alones but they all contribute to the overall picture of the story. So, if there is a favourite episode or scene that you want to replay over and over again, you can! Furthermore, this drama gives off a nice relaxing feeling and a venue for women to nod their heads off in agreement at all the silly things and behaviour men engage in! Definitely a keeper!

Overall: Full marks. Highly recommended. Time to fall in love, people!... unrequitted, of course! ;)

male friends whose relationships are presented in a comedic way. Romance and comedy..the recipe for great success.

Both the dramas have quiet a different story line, however the romance in both the dramas are interesting and refreshingly different.
Main leads have great chemistry in both the dramas. The supporting characters are also quiet interesting and have their own story line.
Both are light hearted romantic comedy, if you like one don't forget to give the other a try.

    This drama was immensely popular in Korea. Jang Dong Gun has been one of the most bankable stars in South Korea for more than 20 years. As a foreign viewer of Korean dramas and movies, if someone asked me my favorite Korean actor, it would be Jang Dong Gun and Lee Byung Hun. Just look at its Korean ratings and you will get the idea how popular this was in Korea. I guess it doesn't have much popularity on this site because its 5 years old but its pretty good and deserve to be watched by foreign audience.

    Re-watching it for the second time, still amazing and hilarious!
    Though I forgot how annoying Yi Soo was, 'specially when she talks to herself and behaves so dramatically, like a kid.

    I can't stand Kim Ha Neul. I find her acting either stiff or exaggerated yet in this series I learned to ignore it..that's how good it was.

    It was a pretty good show. Except for the last 3 or 4 episodes I felt like it was dragging too much and I skipped through most of the last few episodes.

    I have watched 7 eps of this drama when it first aired and loved it but I got busy with real life that I had to put it on hold and it has stayed there for 4 years. Now I finally picked it up and finished it, and I must say even after 4 years have passed I still loved it. Their friendship is precious! There is nothing to dislike here, wonderful 4 male characters, lovely 4 love stories, mixture of comedy and melo and cheesy but fun lines! Mature love story, I'm not a rom-com fan but this is the kind of rom-com I'd enjoy. I really really enjoyed the ride just as much as enjoyed it the first time 4 years ago :)

    None of the leading actresses in this drama can cry. They sound so fake. ESPECIALLY Yoon Jin Yi, urgh. I cringed every time. At some point I even had to mute the sound... =.=''
