The King Of Dramas is a complete fun ride, full of amazing characters.
It is fast paced and never gets boring.
The story is about a brilliant CEO of a drama production house, who gets fired and then he struggles to again achieve his position.
The show is full of laughs and positive energy. The acting by everyone is excellent, especially Kim Myung Min and Choi Si Won.
One of the best comedies of 2012.

It was full of suspense and the story is well written... I was just tired of watching rom/com dramas, so I decided to try this because of the good reviews... I was not sorry at all. Cho Si Won's part was kinda irritating after awhile (the actor in The Greatest Love - Cha Seung Won I think was better for this kind of role - he was not trying too hard, he read more made me seriously laugh). Makes me think of how dramas are really made and how demanding they are and how "fake" actors can just fake it in front of fans... The bad part, the fans fall for it and idolize them.

Thematically, the stories in MK and The King of Dramas were very similar. A boy who has wronged a girl in the past now needs her help to save himself and his dreams, while also trying to help her fulfill her own dreams. Trust issues abound, but they both pull you into their struggles and have you cheering at the TV for every win they get.

The story is also about drama production. It has a great plot, developing characters, of course great OSTs and love chemistry!

    I'm rewatching this drama for the 13th time, and I am still just blown away by how amazing it is! The entire cast is just brilliant, and you can't help but fall in love with all of them. Especially Kim Myung Min's Anthony Kim!

    I loved this drama! I very much enjoyed the really good and endearing characters especially Anthony Kim, the man I so wanted to hate but could not help but to love! Kim Myung Min was BOSS in the role of Anthony Kim and I do agree with the comment that he had the best suits. I thought he rocked them like a superstar male model as he strutted about the place LOL! Not to be out done kudos to Choi Shi Won, who really did a great job portraying the egotistical, ridiculous but very sweet Kang Hyun Min; I laughed every time he came on! I always enjoy Jung Ryeo Won because she usually takes roles which has the female lead as spunky and independent. She's 'Ace' in comedy roles and I loved her as Writer Lee Go Eun. The battle of wills and chess moves in the game of revenge was really entertaining for me and at times reminded me a little of Golden Empire. Really good watch!

    Kim Myung Min was great! Choi Si Won was so amazingly annoying, it was hilarious to see such a different side of him. The first couple of episodes were pretty annoying because people kept leaving and pulling stupid tricks, but the drama really grows on you and before you know it you start to really enjoy it :)

    I rated this with a 7/10 because of the abuse of flashbacks and some parts of the ending. I really enjoyed the romance in this drama, the way it developed i mean. AND of course....Anthony Kim ;)

    I don't think I'll ever find a drama as good as this one and that makes me so sad.

    Great drama! Superb acting! There was not a boring moment! One of the few shows that didn't drag and it got better and better. Kim Myung Min is such an amazing actor. You could not help but love him! I loved the way they pronounce Anthony! Choi SiWon was really good and he made me laugh so hard! I am gonna miss it!

    This was a great drama, the story kept me hooked (for about 15 episodes). After episode 15, the only reason I stayed was the Hyun Min and Min Ah couple. But the story was great and hilarious. A good light watch!

    Watching it right now, so far I am hooked... But I am just disciplining myself to prioritize and do more important things first before I sit and watch or else - it'll be hard to stop watching.
