Definitely not the best drama out there, but a must watch if you love tomboys and girls dressing up as boys. Gyuri does marvelous acting as a boy, so many other girls out there dressing up as a guys do terrible jobs, starting with Sulli's awful acting in To the beautiful you. (But no one beats our female lead in Coffee prince, of course. That was a genious role)
Gyuri is not read more trying too hard to be boyish and definitely remembers the fact that everyone's supposed to think she's a boy in every scene. I had never payed attention to her as a part of Kara until this drama.
I must say I fell in love with Bunny (her character on this drama)
Song Jae Rim (yep that super hot model who was in 2ne1 Go Away, and that Nell's video with Lee minki) Is one of the 3 male leads in this drama, his acting is very good, (even though the character wasnt the best written one) though he looks way hotter shaved and with long hair.
Thunder's character was a bit pathetic and the other lead, Alex had the same expression in the whole 10 episodes of this drama.

If you're in for a drama about GIRL DRESSING UP AS BOY, GUMIHOS, MELODRAMA, ACTION, LOVE TRIANGLE AND LOTS OF SIDE STORIES.
I'm guesing this is for you.

This drama definitely wanted to put as many things as possible in the short time of 10 episodes, still not sure if it was a bad bad idea or it was just needing a couple more chapters to be great.

I felt like they had a good plot but they needed more episodes to fulfill their potential.

It started off the story with a lot to offer, and I feel that even though they tied all the lose ends it would have been better if they had not waited until the 10th episode to do so. It felt like too much was happening that we could not even understand feel the weight read more of what was happening.

We needed at least two more episodes to flesh out the ending a little more.

I liked the ending despite all that. The acting was okay in general from the main girl, but, I was really glad that there were better actor than her in this production including the male leads.

My favorite character was Kay from this show, and that is why I really wish that the ending could have been fleshed out a little more for his sake.

But, if you are bored and enjoy cute dramas you will in general enjoy this drama. I loved the couple moments!

This show is also about a girl who dresses up as a guy to fulfill her dream and that's actually the only thing in common between the shows. If you like gender bender try this out. There is way less drama and more comedy.

Both shows tells that they solved girl's problem except that it has gender bender show in it. I choose this becuz both shows has cute guys! Lol

    I thought the plot was pretty surprising, I was going to watch it just for fun because it seemed quite simple, but parts of it ended up being quite deep and sentimental. It was a nice surprise, and I was never bored. Ending was a little rushed and way too fantastical but I enjoyed it anyways. It was very entertaining and was creative.

      This drama mashed up a bunch of different dramas together. I liked this drama, but you can't take it to serious.

    Hmm this drama was a bit in between for me. I did enjoy the cute cross-dressing and amazingly hot guys but it lacked in plot and dialogue. I found the storyline rushed, far fetched and honestly, Twilight-esque. I gave it a 7.5 because I like nailpolish and Paris. lol xD Tbh I'm being a bit too harsh, it wasn't that bad and it's a short watch if you just want something to take the steam off.

    At first I liked it but the more I watched the worse it got, the last episode just annoyed me it seemed so rushed and the storyline was all over the place probably the worst drama I've watched because I got so annoyed at the writers. The only reason I put up with it was because of Thunder but still not worth it in my opinion.
