So...this drama. I DON'T EVEN KNOW.
Honestly at first I just decided to watch it because I am a huge Park Shin Hye fan and Yoon Shi Yoon fan, and I was like hey! Its a flower boy drama with some of my favorite actors, but I didnt expect too much!

I WAS WRONG. This drama had some of the sweetest, saddest, and fangirl inducing moments!! By the last few episodes I read more was sitting on my couch fanning myself to stop from crying and having to pause the episode. Causing my parents to give me weird looks XD

Yoon Shi Yoon did and amazing job at his role. When he was being his spazzing self, he was the most adorable thing and could make absolutely anyone smile with his positive attitude. But when he was sad...LAWD GET THE TISSUES OUT. He is so convincing with his tears you would believe he is actually getting his heart broken. SO I APPLAUD YOU YOON SHI YOON. You did a great job with this role!!

Shin Hye also did a really good job playing someone with little to no personality. I cant say I liked her character much. She just seemed more cold hearted than introverted...which bothered me being kind of an introvert myself. Just because you got bullied once doesnt give you the right to treat people like that..BUT ANYWAYS. Good job Shin Hye!! Considering every role I have seen you in you have been bubbling with personality...You did a great job not bubbling XD

Anyways, the music was also really good!! I havent personally looked at the names at the ost tracks but the song that would play when something sad was going down was so beautiful and had deep lyrics. DEEP.

I dont rewatch dramas myself...but If i did I would totally rewatch this one and I recommend this drama to everyone!! It was a great storyline and is very fun to watch!!

THAT WAS MY FIRST REVIEW DONT JUDGE XD

So I finally managed to end this drama (I stopped for so long but there is not much to watch at the moment) and I must say I am a little disappointed.
At first I really like the storyline and I love the main cast so I figured this had to be good...
Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. I don't know if it was because of the lack read more of chemistry between the lead couple or just the fact that I got tired of hearing one cheesy line after another but I have to say I did not get into it.
Simple as that: the story is pretty good but I just could not feel any of what was going on in the romance.
The cast is good, the supporting roles too, the music is pretty, the script is full of beautiful declarations and confessions but there are no exiting situations that gets your heart jumping just because of the events and make you want to scream "Kyaaaa" very loudly (like the infamous sit-up scene in Secret Garden, the "Caught in my room" scene in Itazura Na kiss or the whole living together part while disguised as a boy of HanaKimi).
I guess it depends what kind of romantic drama you like but in my case, actions speak louder than words and love declarations are just not enough to get me going crazy for a drama.
So I would say it is a good distraction but far from being a roller-coster for my heart which is usually what I look for in rom/com dramas. Only my opinion of course.

Both series show the relationship between neighbors and female lead doesn't trust people easily. Let's eat has bonus food eating scenes.

    Yoon Shi Yoon is sooooo cute~ x3 But Park Shin Hye isn't the right actress for this kind of drama.

    No chemistry between the leads, you could so see that when they were kissing, and even more so when hugging, I don't remember once when they're heads actually touched when hugging. Even when interacting, just no chemistry at all, there was more chemistry between her and the 2nd lead, so sad to say... I really love her as an actress, and thought she did a great job, but she needs to bring more passion when acting in a relationship... I could only give this drama a 6 for these reasons, as well for the fact of the love triangle, when are these dumb stupid writers gonna write a proper romance without love triangles or main/2nd lead romances??? WHEN???

    I just watched episode 15 and it has no sense. Like someone is going lets try this and that and a bit of this. If it had been more episodes I would have dropped it. I really hate when there is no story and here it is like that - at the beginning she wants him to go then changes her mind and then he wants to go...And she changed her min in a day...really bad...I think all k-drama story writer should just write the story to make sense from the beginning to the end and not pay attention to rating. Like this I have the feeling they are trying to make an episode more interesting to attract the audience - in the story over all there are soooo many things that dont go together... sorry my opinion )of a lot k-dramas!!!)

      I so agree with you in that Korean writer's really have a way to ruining and/or destroying an otherwise great drama, for me, it's about 80% of Kdrama's that are like that, so sad to say...

      I know. I started watching Gapdong right away because I thought the idea of a serial killer in a k-drama would be awesome... And I stopped after episode 6 because it gets really incoherent. They keep adding things that dont add up...Im still watching gapdong but 1 episode every 2 weeks...And ofc there are some that have an amazing story...I wish all of them could be like that...

    Whole drama I was expecting Go Dok Mi and Oh Jin Rak to be together, but nope.
    So that was disappointing for me. But actually nice show.

    I actually liked this one but still not enough to be included into my all-time favorites. I dont find any characters annoying. Loved the guys in the neighborhood plus the webtoon manager. A fun and light watch and can I just say that I liked PSH here more than in Heirs.
