Hmm... lets see, when I first heard about it, I thought the idea was kinda stupid, but it was interesting and since many people were watching it, I thought I'd give it a try to, but to say the least i was not disappointed at all

Let's start with the story, it was interesting and easy to get into and the comedy was a plus, it was a bit heart touching at read more some points, where you could actually understand where the character's decision or choice was coming from so on the whole the story was pretty well written though at some points I just got tired of the story since it would have this small bump and I would think i should just get over with it, but it would come back again nicely so all was well, though in the end it seemed to become a bit too predictable, but what can we say that's the case with most dramas

The Acting/Cast I was whole-heartedly satisfied with, not only were they able to pull me into the story but they got their characters quite well, the expressed the characters properly so that you could understand that no matter what decision the character took he had a solid reason behind it. Cha Jung Woo's character is not the type of character that I usually fall in love with easily because usually there's some glitch in the way the character is portrayed, at least for me but what can I say Joo Sang Wook portrayed the character amazingly, he did not eave any room for me to dislike the character. Ae Ra was portrayed nicely by Lee Min Jung, you couldn't help but love her for being the way she was.

Music was okay, sad in a sad part, happy in the happy parts but i did not understand the critical situation music sometimes, because sometimes in critical situations you don\t go around hearing soft music so I did not really like that much. So on the whole there was nothing special about the music, it was fine but that's all.

I'm giving it a rewatch value of 8, because in times when I don't know what to watch and just want to reminiscence about what I've watched, maybe take a little fast forwarded tour through one of my old dramas, this would fit into that category quite well.

So overall I think and 8 best suited the drama from the story to the cast, music and rewatch value

Cunning single lady is a light romance that makes you smile while watching - no tears here, from the very beginning the happy ending is predictable. Even the so called "bad characters" are not bad at all, and you kind of feel compassionate about them. The second male lead is just the cutest thing on earth, and the music is heartwarming!

Watch this as a buffer drama after something dark, long and read more emotionally exhausting ;)

it's about getting revenge from your Ex, but here, it's the male lead getting back at his runaway bride
Recommended by KJDL
Both are divorce-themed stories and both are rom-com; yet Emergency Couple is a bit on serious tone, more focused on drama side than comedy. It's good to watch both so you get a glimpse on how Koreans' deal with divorce and learn more about their culture.

    I loved it! Lee Minjung and Joo Sangwook are great together. The drama is light and funny, and there's a gag reel at the end! You might find the first couple of episodes a little boring, but I definitely recommend it.

    This drama is so cute. I have never wanted the main leads to be together so badly before. This drama was refreshing to watch. I love Joo Sang Wook's character so much. He's such a cutie!!

    I agree this is really a nice watch! What are other drama that has the same light theme? Any recommendations? Aside from the two recommended on top cause I have watched those already.

    BEST.COMEDY.DRAMA.EVER.
    I'm not exaggerating. (well not talking about you who came from the stars, but do I need to mention it ?) Like, well, everything is just too funny in this drama I can't even !
    With the Wiki combo, guys, if you don't know what to watch and you're wondering if this one is good, this is just the stupidest question of the century.

    And the OST of "Big baby driver - Alone again" I listen to it all day long... such a beautiful song...
    I began it saturday afternoon and finish it... sunday morning without sleeping.
    (Now I'm late with my work, YES IM A LOOSER. love ya)

    those two, SangWook and MinJung are really nice together in this drama. I am watching them and loving them. If it weren't for those clingy second leads, this would be much more enjoyable. But Sangwook and MinJung are just lovely and I like how they do care for each other....ah I love them. For now they are my choice for Best Couple this drama season.
