I've just finished watching this drama and couldn't wait to write a review because it is one of the greatest dramas I've ever watched even its score is too underrated than its real worth.

Story: I don't really understand why I really like the story of it. Okey, it is different than other dramas I've ever watched but has nothing extraordinary though. Still, like the idea of drama-within-drama and also the mixture read more of comedy, drama, romance genres.

Acting/Cast: I think one of the most important reasons I love this drama so much is because of the cast. Every actor and actresses in this drama made a great work. This is the first time that I've ever watched a drama of Jung Ryeo Won&Kim; Myung Min and I really like them. The energy between them is really good and worth to watch. But for me, Choi Si Won is best among the cast, I re-ally love his role and his acting even I'm not kind of person who likes this type of characters. Just before this drama I was thinking to watch Oh! My Lady; was not so sure but I'll definitely watch it for Si Won, he is fabulous. While watching him, couldn't keep myself but laughing. He is the one made this drama so much different from others.

Music: Osts of the drama are good, too. Maybe without watching the drama they are not the type of musics that I want to listen all the time but it seems like that they are cut out for this drama, really good and really fit in with it.

Overall it is one of the greatest dramas, and without any doubt everyone at least should give a chance to it.

Let me just say, from the start, this is truly worth your time watching. If you did not understand the intricacies of drama making, you will. How much is fabricated? Only the writer knows. But I must applaud the writer because I was totally satisfied with the ending and it was as I expected. There were very few periods where you weren't sure where the writer was going with the story. I read more think the story was totally put together great. Now, let's get to the acting! I watched this for Jung Ryu Won and as usually, she did not disappoint. Her role as Lee Go Eun was amazing! Love her more now! Kim Myung Min, I was happy to finally see him in a role that I actually liked! Sure, his character was straitlaced and strict but you cannot help loving him, regardless. That's good acting! Choi Si Won, I think he was totally channeling Dokki Jin (Greatest Love), you could not help chuckling whenever he was on the screen. Oh Ji Eun did a great job as Min Ah. The rest of the supporting cast were wonderful and each had their own memorable moments. So worth the watch and I officially stamp this with a drama marathon warning! Yes 3 days, and done! Great drama!!

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!

    As a long time Asian drama lover..... they used all clichés on purpose right? I was like "In a typical drama this usually happens next...... wait, seriously?! Whaaaat? Again?"

    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!
