I was looking for a cute romantic comedy with a nice plot and nice casting, so I decided to see this, since there were good reviews.
I liked this drama so far, but I was expecting something more from it; I felt like the last episodes were messy and everything was in a rush so in the end I can't give a high ranking to it.

The plot: this drama has a read more cute plot, that develops nicely till the last episodes. It is a soft drama, worth watching if you are tired of melodrama, or action dramas and so on...

The characters: I liked the characters, even though they sometimes made things completely out of character.
For example, Da Joung is a nice female lead, but in the end she start to make weird things without a very good reason.
Kang In Ho was my favourite character, I felt like he was the most human (and Yoon Shi Yoon made a good job with acting!)
The best thing in the whole show were the kids, Woo Ri, Na Ra and Man Se were the cutest thing ever!

The music: unfortunately I can't found anything special in the ost except the piano instrumental.

In the end, I liked this, but honestly speaking, I couldn't feel anything special while watching. I wasn't able to fall for the characters, and I didn't like the end too.
But I recomend this, if you are looking for something cute!

I realized something after watching this drama, I'm not much of a fan of Ahjussi-romances. This drama wasn't bad, but it wasn't my cup of tea (or hot chocolate, considering I don't really like tea).

I really liked it, even loved it, at the beginning! It was funny and I enjoyed watching it. But eventually it got boring and I had a hard time trying to catch up with the episodes.

The read more story is good. I'm not into politics AT ALL but this wasn't THAT boring. Sometimes I didn't understand some stuff but I ignored it so all was fine. The conflicts presented were good and the mystery around the Prime Minister's wife's death and Chief Kang was interesting too. Yet, I didn't care much about anything after watching half of the episodes. I honestly think it had more to do with me than with the drama...

The characters were OK. To be honest, I didn't care much about them either. I was glad Prime Minister Yul was portrayed with the maturity he should have. The other characters were OK but not that memorable. Seo Hye Joo was a character that confused me. I liked her when she was bad-ass but then I didn't like her when she got all emotional. I really liked Park Joon Ki even though he was the villain. He was a good villain. And he was cute despite being old. ;)

My favorite characters, though, were the kids, particularly Man Se! It surprised me how amazing their acting was! Jeon Min Seo as Na Ra did a spectacular job! And Man Se was so adorable!

A lot of people were disappointed with the ending but I thought it was OK. I think they wrapped up pretty nicely and I'm fine with the fact that they left the future to the audience's imagination. Maybe if I cared more about the drama I would've been disappointed with the ending but right now I'm fine with it.

Overall, it was a good drama. I'm pretty sure many of you would like it, and do like it, but it just wasn't for me.

In both the leads pretend to be a couple. Although in PM&I, they pretend to be married while in MND they pretend they're engaged.
In both story line the heroine has to pretend to be married to a weathy man because of a lie.

    Sorry to disagree with the Reviews above and some of the comments below... I didn't think it was boring at all. I loved Yoonah and Bum Soo together even with their age difference! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic comedy. ALL of the cast was great in their performances...

    Too much boredom in 1 drama. How underwhelming. It was so hyped too.

    I liked the drama. I like age gap stories and stories which feature cast with age gap between them (as long as they are capable actors, like here) as love is not limited to hot young idols or people of the same age. I liked how the mutual interest was executed between the leads. I found the concept imaginative in some ways. Lee Bum Soo is an excellent actor and good for this role. I always found Yoona very likeable.

    I did have a problem with the last couple of episodes, though I think the ending itself was just right.

    I am glad dramas like this are made, but this one could have been a little better.

    Hated the idea the main actress is too young for the main male actor plus he is ugly.

      i know right! I dropped dating agency cryano because of the main actor and im not planning to watch this one either for the same thing. I mean the whole plot is messed up .

      1. And what's the problem with that? The point of this is that love is ageless.
      2. So you're going to stay away from every drama that does not contain sexy-male lead eye candy? That's too bad. You're going to miss some amazing dramas then. I'm sorry for you.

      I know the love is ageless is good in reality but if a drama is going to depict that then the actors need chemistry so you can feel the love between the actors. I mean Kwon Sang Woo is 20 years older than Yoona as well but he had good chemistry with her in Cinderella Man where as Lee Bum Soo did not.

      I learned that chemestry, as well as beauty, is on the eyes of the beholder. I loved the chemestry they had . Sadly, the writers ruined the story.

    I really liked this drama, not boring at all for me. Rather than adding so many twists and cliches, I prefer it like this. Just the last episode was totally unnecessary. From a 9 to an 8 point drama from my part now.
