This drama should be enjoyed as a lightweight romantic comedy type of show. The strengths of this show lie in the way it slowly reveals the backstory of each character and the growth of each character throughout the show in the way they see the world around them and their perceptions of love.

Yoon Shi Yoon and Park Shin Hye make an adorable pairing, probably due a lot to Yoon Shi Yoon read more (who is such an adorable, speed-talking puppy in this show). He balances the mischievous and insightful sides of his character, while Park Shin Hye does well as the shy and withdrawn heroine who grows out of her shell. I love the way all the characters enter each other's lives to challenge their assumptions and perceptions for the better. This is a nice ensemble cast, but not exactly the best out there.

Kim Ji Hoon has entered my list of ahjusshi hotties to look out for - his character Jin Rak is so endearing. Your heart just breaks a little for me every time he plays the better man and tries to put Dok Mi first, but unfortunately you just know he's the type who can never get the girl.

The conflict in the last few episodes felt a little draggy and weighed the show down a little for me, but I still appreciate the way the characters were written.

This drama was cute & funny. I enjoyed it all the way through. I don't think that there was much that I had a problem with. The ending was even full of sunshine & roses...LOL! It was a good drama & I think everyone will enjoy. I rly don't feel like breaking it apart and piecing it back together, b/c I feel that would just be a waste of time. I tried read more to just enjoy it for the entertainment value, which was not hard to do since it was full of hot guys that did cute things even when they r being all manly. So basically it was a good drama that will make everyone happy in the end. Enjoy!

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???

      on a scale 1-10, score 7.8 is pretty high, not to mention that it has 10k votes, you should check the meaning of a word "underrated"

      it's not so high, it should be at least 8.00
      you don't have to be rude to say different opinion than mine, i know the meaning of that word and i still think it's underrated. so back off with that rude comment

    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...

      ooops Sep 24, 2014

      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.
