This drama started out great! Everything was adorable and cute. I liked how they explored relationships with the story lines and everything wasn't so black and white with the characters.

But too bad you can't rate a drama off it's beginning even if it's a special.

The ending was not what I expected. After I stared at my computer screen dumbfounded for several moments I realized that this would be the ending read more for the this drama. I almost thought that they might have added another episode and started to look around but I then realized that the ending I saw was the closing of the drama.

It completely ruined it for me because it was too rushed. So rushed that it's hard to make sense of what's happening. The writers obviously didn't have enough time to make a good ending but I think they could have done better than that.

Besides that I think that the cast did a great job. BoA did great too. I believe this is her first time starring in something and she's a singer so I was kind of worried that she wouldn't be good but I think she did a really great job. Choi Daniel was of course excellent as well.

The story line is good. I liked the overall idea and take they had on relationships. It's a extremely funny and sweet. I found myself laughing the whole way through and smiling so hard because of the adorable moments.

Since it's so short and the ending ruined everything for me I probably won't rewatch it but overall I still feel that if you really enjoy it you will probably watch it again.

Overall, the drama is hilarious and is something cute to watch when you have time on your hands. It had a lot of funny moments and really cute adorable moments too. You can also take some tips if you want relationship advice. I still think this drama is quite enjoyable and if the last five minutes wasn't so bad I would have gave it an 8.

This has got to be the best two hours spent on a drama. Great story about love and reality. There is not really too much that can be said without giving the drama/movie away. Just shows that with love, timing is very important and communication in a relationship is important. This has to be as close to the real thing when it comes to relationships that I have seen in a while read more in a drama. It also shows that you can do a lot with 2 hours and still get the main point across. I gave music an 8 because there really wasn't much when it came to music except that mellow background music that fits each mood.

In both dramas, the characters struggle with dating issues. Looking Forward to Romance or Hope for Dating also showings multiple couples trying to figure it out.

    I truly liked this mini-drama! Very surprised at the low, low ratings; but maybe it was because it was too real life without the fairy tale ending?!? Sometimes in love, we push so hard to make things happen that it either never works out or we enter a marriage that is miserable after a while. If this drama was real life, I would say that GOD had a better way without trying to push, push, push to make it happen... Loved this mini drama! If you decide to watch this, try to keep an open mind, forget about the negative comments and ENJOY! http://dramatv.tv//watch-drama/waiting-for-love-ep-2-english-sub.html
