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.

    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 -_-

      Lol why didn't you tell me there is a similar drama to Cunning Single Lady that you know?
      Oh well maybe you will not read this until 2050 or so...

    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... :)
