Story- Starts of hilariously. The male leads in fat suit getting ready to be married to his love. She leaves him at the alter and after many years he comes back as a hottie pro golfer. Of course he wants to rub it in her face and she just wants him back for his money. Or does she? The drama\''\''s only weakness is the plot drags a lot in the middle. The read more end is cute tho!

Acting/Cast. Everyone in this drama can act. Oh Ji Ho is funny as always and is the Korean Brad Pitt. The female lead is so likable even though her character is suppose to be unlikable. You root for her. The supporting female I despise. She is sooo annoying! The second male lead is a good actor but his looks make his rival role not believable. You def cannot compare him to Oh Ji Ho!!

Music- ordinary

Rewatch- Not rewatchable in my opinion.

Overall- A drama with potential so watch maybe the first 8 episodes than skip to the last 2 or 3 eps. Believe me you dont miss much...

I decided to watch this drama as a sort of timepass and because it had Oh Ji Ho. Needless to say I wasn't expecting much but here's where Get Karl, Oh Soo Jung surprised me somewhat. Here's one drama, which gets rid of the traditional Miss Goody-two-shoes self-sacrificing Kdrama heroine who cries buckets whenever things go wrong in her life and embraced the idea of a strong woman who unabashedly confesses to read more be a gold-digger, as its lead. And who better than a great actress like Uhm Jung Hwa to do this character justice?! The story was a bit unconventional, so was the relationship between the leads...but both Oh Ji Ho and Jung Hwa had terrific chemistry throughout. The plot drags considerably after episode 10, when stupid misunderstandings crop up. Instead of being brave and fessing up, the hero chickens out and gives the bad girl the advantage and they take this long meandering route towards reconciliation. I was expecting more spine from Oh Ji Ho's character and in that respect I was sorely disappointed. Coming to the side characters, the friendship between Soo Jung and her two girlfriends provides lots of comic relief and Karl's manager who speaks Korean with an artificial American accent and Soo Jung's teenage brother are hilarious as well. All in all, a good watch but not remarkable.

Mainly because It has the gorgeous Oh Ji Ho, a dimpled, handsome lead just like in Who's the one, and he's hysterical and sweet as Overweight Karl before he transforms himself into a lean, gorgeous Pro-Golfer. And it has the talented Uhm Jung Hwa as his leading lady upending his life once again.

They both have similar plots: meeting with a past lover/ crush and years later the female leads looks have deteriorated and meets the lead guy again.
Get Karl was a comical drama just like she was pretty.

    Go Man Soo / Karl & Oh Soo Jeong they do have chemo but I have never seen such a sly main lady in K Dramas, She left him bec he could not pass the bar exam and pardon my language but literally fcks off to USA with another guy. 7 years later the fat Go Man Soo turned into a hunk but she still wants him for money, she went to a fortune teller she warned her, but she has not listened her carefully.

    Based on a true story... I really did not like the personality of the main role female and really felt bad for the groom to be, but then again, if roles were flipped and a guy would leave a female by the alter or was having that attitude towards the other half, perhaps it would be taken as more natural. But, because it is not crying feeling sorry for herself female who knows what she wants for herself out of life - everyone judges had badly and perhaps rightfully. I kind of felt that drama although strated well and funny, kind of fated away from me somehow pass episode 10. Still, it was OK. There were a lot of romantic and cute scenes during the whole drama. I somehow because of the 1st part when she left him by the altar never forgive her for that, and when she said he can die - that was totally mean and cruel! From that moment redemption was not an option for me. She lost all the colors in my eyes. It was hard for me to watch her character progress to something else throughout the drama but I must say, at the end I softened quite a bit and said to myself "Not bad story and drama" :)

    I'm watching this because it's from the same writer of Pinocchio, I hear your voice and Dream High. So it must be something!

    I'm currently watching Cunning Single Lady and really like it & I heared this one's similar to it (or also to Hi My Sweetheart which is one of my favorites). But it seems like people tend to hate the female lead in here. Is she really a gold-digger? I just can't stand those selfish money seeking characters -_-

    According to Wikipedia, this is based on a true story, and not only that, they used the guy's real name for his character as well...

      Hehe, one night cost me my monitor, and a patch job to my wall, the mother made me so livid, I punched my bedroom wall beside me and through my headphones at my fairly new 27" monitor. I was looking to get either a 40 or 50" HDTV, well, needlessly to say, that happened much sooner than I wanted it to be, but oh well, c'est la vie, that was the first time I'd ever done that, but yeah, usually it's just cussing at them... :P

      Well, watching quite a few episodes of this super overbearing, control freak, idiot of a mother, yeah, I'd finally had it, I think I even raised the rooftop by a few inches, good thing I was home alone as it was in the middle of the night, hehe, I was so livid, my hands were shaking... :P It really takes a lot for me to get really angry like that, and well, she did just that. I forget the name of the drama, nor do I care to remember it, :P um, but there were a couple of others that got me almost that angry, the brother in Nagareboshi, and the husband in Fuyu no Sakura, both are Jdramas, but then, these stupid dumb love triangles really get me livid too, Love Revolution was one of them, yet another Jdrama. Oh, if I watch a drama where there's betrayal, I get even more angry than that idiot brother and that despicable husband. Betrayal is yeah, I'd best not get started... :)
