Where to begin......lol The basic premise of this drama is.....hmm, I can't remember what it is? Why is that? Strange. All I seem to understand is that the lead (Geun Suk's character) is adored by women wherever he goes and is just too pretty to pass up. Frankly, I'm getting tired of seeing Geun Suk in these cocky roles. The man is full of himself enough as it is off-stage, please don't read more cast him in a role that'll kiss his ass for an hour. That being said, he is quite a good actor, he emotes very well through his facial expressions (which can be rather humorous), and can also cry convincing which is oddly a pet-peeve of mine when an actor can't shed tears without going overboard. IU is doing pretty well for her first role in a drama (I think this is her first, I dunno), but its nothing remarkable. At least she can act, plenty of idols turned drama actors can't act worth a damn once the cameras start rolling, but this chick has got potential to grow as an actress. The plotline is a mess however, only God knows how horrible it will get by the end of the drama lol We all know dramas tend to take a nosedive in the plot department in the final episodes, it's not going to be pretty for this one...

I love this type of JGS usually. I typically call him hot and spicy...and smexy. He is great with his emotions but the acting did seem forced in scenes. You have to over look that certain things would never happen or are just not logical because otherwise half the Asian drama would never get watched so I wont dwell on those things like the hospital scene for one. Right now there is read more no chemistry between the leads good or bad to catch my attention it's just kinda not there right now. I have read reviews saying it was so so at best but I have to watch it. I love JGS style and I love that the writers let him have it because his long hair is just wahhh! However, the story is kinda slow and I'm no feeling "it" so far. I barely made it through the first episode. If this really caught my attention I would be up all night trying to watch them all. I think part of it is there are too damn many girls for my taste. I like me some eye candy and so far not getting any. When YB and SKKS came out I was totally fixed and even Mary Stayed out all night had me anticipating the next episode but this one I"m ready for bed. Hopefully the following episodes are better.

I am just starting to watch this, literally on epi1. And there are, already, scenes that have not been executed well. At some point his (Jang Geun Suk) acting seem forced. The last scene in the hospital was vey unrealistic. His mom was not positioned properly while being defibrillate while him on the other hand was on the bedside crying hysterically and not to mention the count of people inside the room. read more The practitioners are obviously having a hard time executing their job. ( I'm sorry can't help it. Nurse here. Hehehe) Just my POV.

But I am looking forward to the potential progress of the drama. I've already laugh a few times so I'll see through this drama until the end. And plus, Jang Geun Suk is really a pretty boy.

I can also say that this was somehow different from ohter 'poor girl madly in love with the rich guy who doesn't give a damn 'bout her'types of dramas..(ehh long title ;p) I think I lowered my rating because of the really bad crying scene. though I really like the second female lead! :)

The girl Bo tong is so irritating and childish , she doesn't seem to have 26 years old, i could give her max 16 years old according to her behavior .

The crying scene was the worst crying scene i've ever seen.

The first one was good, and different. Not what I expected, but it was a good start. So many mystery!

OK, this was not what I expected. I thought this wouldbe some easygoing drama but I seem to have been mistaken. THis drama has actually some depth to it. And the first episode wasn't exactly romantic either and just subtly funny. I found this episode rather tragic, to be honest. But I liked it. It's definitely something to look forward to.
