this show is a really fun watch. i greatly enjoyed the missions and the folks from cyrano. that's why it gets a 7.

the story of the OTP was very poorly developed. the 2nd lead got way more attention. it really seemed that with writers got to the home stretch and realized "oh crap! we've got 2 episodes left. we have to wrap this up!!!" and so it ended in a big read more steaming pile of WTF which would have ruined the whole thing. watch the 1st 14 episodes, they are very entertaining.

Story: I think the writers did an absolutely fantastic job!!! I have always been a huge fan of age gaps and I think they did a really good job with this! I just loved it!! Everything About the story was just amazing! I don't think there is much more to say on this... Because it's just so good.

Cast: I love Sooyoung! She was the reason I started this! :) I am read more really happy with her acting! I hope she will be in a lot more dramas in the future! Lee Jong Hyuk did wonderful! And OMO Hong Jong Hyun!!! First time ever seeing him in a drama. I think he's amazing! I loved his character so much!!! I hope he is a lead sometime! I would watch his drama!!!

Also I think there should be a rating for Characters.
The characters in this were amazing!!!! Another + for the writers!! They made every character in this understandable!

Gong Min Young: She is one of my favourite female leads now! I love how she didn't take any of Seo Byung's crap when he was like "I'm not a good man for you"
I LOVE HER!! Her character didn't disappoint me even once!

Seo Byung Hoon/Seo Il Rok:
I liked him! He wasn't that much of a jerk and I think he was really cool and... I don't know.. Like even near the end when he was refusing to just recognize his feelings... Yeah I wasn't happy and I think he should've just down something earlier... But I really liked his character.

Master: He's sooo... I don't know... Just.. :'( I love him! I love how it didn't end with him being depressed. If he did I might have died of sadness. But YES! I love Gong Stone/SeoByung couple! I shipped them to the max... But Master was just so cool and lovely... :'( Why dramas do this to me???

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

They are similar in the sense that they are both romantic comedies with a creepy twist but I have to say "Let's Eat" does it so much better! Another similarity between the two is the idol actors while in dating agency there's soo young in "let's eat" there is yoon doo joon and let me just say is acting completely blew. me. away. I didn't even know he was an idol! (I dont keep up with kpop) Every character was loveable and the love line was much nicer in my opinion because it's not a stereotypical love triangle :)
There is only one issue with this drama which you may realize simply with reading the title. They eat allll the time it WILL make you hungry so eat before hand!

    SNSD Sooyoung, you should teach your girl group certain friend to be like you and dont f*ck up Prime Minister and I. After all, a little bit of romance here in Cyrano was perfectly normal and cute. Thats how its supposed to be ;) Cheers

    I finally took this off my "hold" list and have had a marathon this weekend. I've really enjoyed it but I am so confused by something: why do they call Seo Byung Hoon
    "Il Rok"? I actually was thinking his name was Il Rok ( which is interesting since Lee Jong Hyuk had a similar name in A Gentleman's Dignity) until around episode 14. Someone please explain. I know I'm missing so ething. :(

    I'm stuck in a drama slump, so I have been rewatching some of my favorites, and I can't believe how good this drama is the second time around. I really thought it wouldn't have a very high rewatch ability, but it's still so much fun watching the operations the agency pulls off the second time around :p

    Sorry to say I didn't like this show it was to chaotic for me I had trouble following the story line and with a different couple being brought together in every episode I had a hard time working out who was who. The only thing I was sure of was the couple would get together in the end despite all the random stuff happening to them so it felt like a waste of time for me to watch it.

      How far in did you get before you dropped it? I didn't have that problem, but I can see how it could be seen as chaotic. I think once you make it past the third or fourth episode that the chemistry with the cast just really starts to shine. This drama was definitely nothing new or revolutionary, but it was still seriously cute, and a lot of fun along the way. I don't normally like ajusshi romances, but Seo Il Rok totally stole my heart!

      I got to about episode 7. I know some dramas take a while to warm up and get going so I like to give them a chance but I just couldn't sit back and enjoy it I might try again someday but it won't be for a while.

      I think it's over-rated. It has its possitive n cute aspects, but it's not enough. I finished it just because I downloaded it - I didn't want to waste that time.
