One more "Flower Boy" series are over... and I am left with yet another broadly smiling face. Though I will not spill compliments that these series left me breathless, like the previous, "Shut Up Flower Boy Band", did, but this drama, in its genre of bubbly, funny, cutey-cutey-cutey, totally had me from the first moment till the last.

First of all, I am now noticing a pattern in the series as I read more have watched all of them, though they are called "Pretty Boy" and hey, who can say you don't see enough pretty here, but has anyone also caught him/herself on the thought that the characters crated for these series seem very real? I mean, forgetting about the bubbly front, there were real people, real feeling, real problems, and I like it so much, that it feels real watching these characters. I like characters that have depth, and the series have never failed to give me the characters. And though at first you may thing Enrique is the most funny, cute and bubbly character you could ever see, throughout the series he will show you so much humanity, so much sadness, so many unforgettable words... Though Dok-Mi may seem the girl who has closed herself and hasn't thought about her life ever since, will show you so much smile, so much strength, so much pain that she has been through and how much she grows by the end of the series, how much she changes Enrique and changes herself...

As the drama is mostly a comedy, I thought it is important to note that you'll find here not only comedy but also real characters who will make you feel for them, which I really appreciate.

This was the 3rd drama I was watching with Park Shin-Hye, and she again proved her abilities, I adore the girl.
Yoo Si-Yoon was just adorable as puppy-panda Enrique, I hope to watch other things with him.

Music was, like the drama, cute and calm. I really like the slow piece during the sad parts, and Park Shin-Hye's song, so alike her character and warm to my heart.

Well, I'm writing my first review because I want to defend this drama.
First of all, I thought I wouldn't like it and I didn't even want to watch it, but I didn't have anything better to do. And I'm glad I did.
I really liked it!
Seeing comments, it looks like people really love this drama or reeeeally hate it.

The story: was new. I've never see a drama about a read more shut-in's love. The script was really good and I enjoyed it.
Eventhough, I have to say that you won't like it if you like dramas with a lot of events. Nothing really happens, characters talk a lot, go round and round. But as I said earlier, dialogs are great so it wasn't frustrating.
I think that's the reason why people love or hate it. It's the kind of drama you watch as a distraction.

The actors : Park Shin Hye was really great, she didn't have her usual pitiful crying face. Yoon shi Yoon was really cute and broke my heart a couple of times with his red eyes. His acting was a bit over the top sometimes but not exaggerated. He's really good when he's acting serious or angry, I was impressed.
I think I've never laughed so much watching a drama. Almost every episode made me laugh out loud. Kim Ji Hoo is the best at comedy.
The only one I didn't like was Park Soo Jin. That's my opinion but I find her odious, really not my type.

Music : I don't remember anything, but a couple of songs were good. Maybe not enough music?

Rewatch value : I like rewatching but I don't thing I'll rewatch it. Maybe in a couple of years...

Overall : this drama is part of the flower boy serie. Of course, there's flower boys, cuteness overload, crying, misunderstandings, love triangle(rectangle,pentagon,hexagon). But strangely enough, they wrote it in a way that wasn't boring or frustrating: it's worth it. It's not the best drama ever, but it's not a bad drama.
Give it a try if you're hesitating! You'll be hooked right away!
If you don't like flower boys, don't watch it. But who doesn't like it? ;)

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

    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.

    I was surprised that so many people disliked this drama. I just finished it today and I really liked it. If you do want to watch this drama I suggest that if you find Enrique annoying then maybe you should stop watching because he does not really change. Also don't go in thinking that this will be a thought provoking drama because it's not. It's more of a light fun drama.

    Finished this yesterday! Loved the characters (especially the flower boys!) and there were many funny moments! I must admit, around the last episodes it started to get kinda boring! Was good for the most part, give it a try!

    It's not a bad drama, not so good either.
    The story was dragging on and on and on...
    The plot was slow and plain.
