I am watching a drama after a long time so that may be the reason I am giving this a 9. Or I just happen to really like romance where the main guy gets jealous all the time. LOL. I put this drama on hold for over a year because it didn't impress me in the beginning. However when I picked it up again I found myself enjoying it. The story is read more cliche but it is alright if you are in the mood for something light.

The cast is quite likable. I felt like they all fit their roles really well and the characters weren't hard to like either. I really enjoyed the characters of Chief and the interns in the ER department. Although the main guy Oh Chang Min lacked depth, the humour made up for the lack of it. For me he was the main love interest just for the sake of it and Oh Jin Hee wasn't special either. I must say, though- having an attractive cast helps. Some of the side actors were so cute that every time they came on screen I welcomed their presence.

The best parts of the drama were the romantic scenes. I enjoyed those- especially the jealousy scenes. I also enjoyed the scenes between the Chief and Oh Jin Hee. They were so cute together and the Chief was all cool, manly, cute and all that. I would have given this drama a 10 if it weren't obvious who she would end up with. Plus I am prone to the second-lead syndrome, you know. Not always but some times.

I liked the OST but didn't love it. The medical aspects of the drama were cool but after a while I wasn't interested in their cases anymore.

Overall this drama has a good entertainment factor and watch it for some mindless fun. If you dislike immature characters, stay away from it as you might end up hating the main pair itself. But you might like the supporting characters so you may never know. :)

I really enjoyed this drama. I've seen a few medical dramas, and I thought this was an excellent one. I liked the plot when I first read the synopsis, and generally, this was the same throughout the show but I thought the plot in the last 3-4 episodes was a bit slow. The side plots added really well to the show- but one of them was left unfinished, I felt.

All of read more the cast were excellent- I loved the chemistry between the leads, and I thought the secondary characters were great also. The cameo in episode 3 made me laugh SO MUCH :D

I really liked the music throughout the show- especially Choi Jin Hyuk's song :3

I'm giving it a re-watch value of six, only because I'm not likely to re-watch this drama, anytime soon.

Overall, I really liked this drama- it was definitely one of the best so far this year~!

Both are about a divorced couple which meet again after years.
But in this drama she's the manager of a wedding department of a hotel and he's a groom. Then a murder case takes place.

    I liked this drama.
    But why does everyone hate Ji Hyo's character (and her) so much? I thought her personality was justified and realistic. She kind of reminded me of Gong Hyo Jin's character in It's Okay, That's Love, but flipped around.
    I actually hate Jin Hyuk's character to death until the 13/14 episode mark...

    Either way the characters and their development were the best in this drama, <3

    This drama is fine, but not that good. Slow pace and a bit boring.

    I think this is one of the drama where you think: Maybe him...no the other one, no, no, this one. I feel like both of them would be a nice couple and it was a long time unsure, who it would be. All in all it was a great drama, that i liked from the first moment <3 Funny and adorable people, thats why from me 10/10 *-*

    This drama is quite tiring to watch. JiHyo did not deserve a bad character like that, Jin Hee is such an embarrassing woman..

    Drama with lots of sweet and hilarious moments :-) The "rival" characters are all loveable which is rare in kdramas.The ending is nice and realistic too.
    I also loved many messages they sent out like it's never too late to pursue your dreams, just do what you like without caring about other people's criticism. It's never too late to learn/study something new, you just need the courage to do so :-) They also subtly criticized some negative aspects of Korea's society/social norms which I really liked as well.

    Ugh, get rid of this bitch Jin Hee, totally erase all feelings for another if you're going to get back with your ex, how nasty and dirty, and low can you get, I feel ashamed for all women because of this spiteful bitch. She doesn't deserve to be back with her ex-husband, he's too good for her.

    Extremely overrated. She's really annoying and the ending is so expected. I gave it a mediocre 6.

    For a K-drama I loved it, usually I tend to get bored halfway or towards the end cause they feel dragged out. But this was really fun and enjoyable, love majority of the cast too. I could defo rewatch it =)

    This show is really good! For the first time in quite a while I found the second leads to be likable! And who don't enjoy a kind of funny but yet serious hospital drama? Well I do and this series is a very good fit.
    Also, this is the first series of the ones I've seen where I started to like Choi Jin Hyuk. I've had a hard time finding him likable before, but in this show he really captured the character well and I found myself loving him! I wont say that he's my new favorite actor, that would be a lie. But I will most definitaly watch more of his shows!

    I love first half of this drama - for me it's totally normal to act a bit childish when confronting love. Especially love from your "younger days". Well... At least I'm like that;]
    Boring episodes? We have forward button for it, right?;p
    And again. I just love JiHyo&JinHyuk acting XD
