1-The reason I watched this : I just read the synopsis then I unconsciously started to watch and finished it in three days dramathon

2-Storyline/Plot : Totally loved the story, it was well done plus the events passed by so smoothly without any blanks or slow moments.
The start was really awesome,I really enjoyed the hilarious moments at the beginning. The rest was good too although I still prefer the beginning of read more the drama.

3-Acting/Cast : Lee Da Hae has done her role in a perfect way; I haven't noticed any mistakes in her performance although her character fell into the usual dumb lead Korean female in some point but I really liked the way she lied; it was very believable and super hilarious.
Lee Dong Wook and Lee Jun Ki were my special eye candy in this drama, I am really sorry for saying this but when I see them on screen all I was thinking about were shallow feelings for those two actors looks so I really can't talk about their acting skills but I can say that they had usual characters as a lead male and a second lead male.
Other cast weren't that bad but they weren't that great either. However, I will say this: Park Si Yeon was really annoying as a character and as an actress.

4-Music : It was the same song played all along the drama but it was good enough to hear over and over again.

5-Rewatch value : I don't think that it could be fully rewatched but there's some moments that deserves repeating them.

6-The ending : A nice cute ending not that special but I totally loved the two guests who showed up in the last episode.

7-Overall : This is the type of drama that's highly recommended to romantic comedies lovers.

This was one of the first dramas I watched and yet, after many others seen since then, it's remained one of my favourites. As opposed to others, I loved that the writers let the protagonist's relationship really develop until anything actually happens between them. It really made their attachment believable and it really caught my heart.

Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae really impressed me with their acting skills. I often read more find the childishness of the leading women in Kdramas annoying, as I feel it makes them look downright stupid, not cute. Yet Lee Da Hae's portrayal of Yoo Rin was unexpectedly endearing and funny. Lee Dong Wok was amazing in this role and he didn't play the character as too cold and arrogant, but just right.

I don't know what it was exactly about this drama that really grabbed me, but when it did, I was hooked. I usually hate extreme silliness or angst, and but for a few moments, this drama did these elements perfectly. In addition, even the secondary characters' storylines were interesting and captivating. I often find myself skipping through these plot lines, but, here, even the second male lead seemed more than just an instrument of conflict.

Overall, for me, this drama will stay as one my favourites for a long time for its simplicity, clever humour and well developed romance. Some scenes will stay in my mind forever like the orchard scene, the moving elevators or the romantic farts of Mrs In-Sun. I really recommend this drama!

Plot-wise these two have pretty much nothing in common. If you enjoy the acting of the female lead on the other you will enjoy the acting in the other one too. I personally found the female leads pretty similar with their over-acting characters and tacky clothing. They're similar to the point I would think they're siblings.

Since Coffee Prince is a classic romantic comedy, here's another classic. There's no tomboy, but there are some pretty funny scenes and it's an easy watch.

    i have to be fair. the music was one of the best K-Drama OST i've heard. i have the full album in my 5stars list.
    the drama, well i dropped it after episode 5. as much as i admire Lee Jun Ki and Park Shin Dae's awesome performances, "My Girl" is all the same old poor girl and rich boy love triangle. the difference is this time, it's more like the European ones. the boy already has made up with his girlfriend, but suddenly finds someone funnier (and cuter, IMO) and there you go. they actually can make a sequel in which Gong Chan sees another girl (probably his real cousin) and leaves Joo Yoo Rin. and so on...

      I know the feeling, I watched Beautiful Life, I knew it would be sad, but the last episode, she's dead on the floor and he's adding makeup making her look pretty, and he's just full of emotion, even now, months and months later, I still think about it sometimes and catch myself crying, it really moved and shook me up. I wish, for once, there would be just a nice romance drama without idiots, love triangles, hurts, etc, that lower the goodness of the drama, I'm watching Wonderful Days, just an all out and out awesome drama, but once again, it has a few really stupid, despicable, ludicrous people in it that just trash and destroy the goodness of the story, it would have been a real masterpiece had it not been for these dumb idiots... It's still airing, but almost finished... I am so like you, I want to laugh, love, have fun, and cry for all the right reasons, sometimes sad but for the right reasons, not getting frustrated, annoyed, angry, livid, etc. Yeah, Hotel King looks like it's a good one, someone told me I'd probably like it, I just have one more episode of an airing drama to watch then I will start on the 2nd ep of HK. Hehe, yeah, I feel bad for the computer too, but I feel more bad for my wallet... :))) LOL... Not sometimes, I ALWAYS get involved in each and every drama or movie I watch, sometimes the roof lifts from me screaming at the screen, I cry when I see chemistry between two people. I watched the Taiwanese version of Fated To Love You last night, and my heart was all bubbly, just watching them together after they got back together, made me with I was the guy having the relationship. When watching these drama's, it makes me yearn and long for what they have, it really makes me all the more lonely, but I don't think I can handle being in a relationship for fear of being hurt again. I could right a very thick book on the many ways I've been hurt through the years. I have a super thick impenetrable iron wall around me protecting me, and right now, nobody can get through, that's how much I've been hurt. I'm EXTREMELY bitter, but not to the point where I'm not sensitive to others' suffering, pain, and hurt. But yeah, it does sound like we do have the same taste in drama's... :)))

    Everyone was so excited about LDW and LDH reuniting in Hotel King so I decided to give this another try and watch it before Hotel King. I don't know why I couldn't get through the first Ep years ago but I absolutely loved it this time around! The comedy and LDH were spot on. It's definitely not for everyone but I love the over-the-top campy acting and humor.

    I have just a really quick question, in the recommendations, Ayacherry said the forbidden love between siblings, um, where were the real siblings in this story? They were fake siblings, and not even siblings, they were fake cousins, and it is not wrong to love your cousin, and/or even marry a cousin, at least in Canada, even in the Bible cousins married and were blessed by God, Jacob and Leah and Rachel were just one example of cousins marrying. But to say that My Girl lives out every angsty moment of the forbidden love, that is so totally bogus and so wrong, especially when they weren't even related. Sorry Ayacherry, wrong drama... :))) I so wanted to give this a rating of 8 or 9 if it hadn't been for the 2nd leads and the dumb 2nd male lead's mother and our lead's grandfather. For me they all destroyed a most wonderful and enjoyable romance drama for me... :'(
