I can't believe how much I love this drama...

The characters feel like real people that actually have impacts on everyone around them. This is awesome because many times writers of dramas tend to forget characters that aren't in the main couple/triangle. I love that this drama shows actions and reactions of so many people, all while being able to keep the viewers absolutely in love with the main characters. No one read more felt overshadowed or forgotten, and you can feel how everyone involved really cared about telling this story.

The cast is filled with some of my favorite actors of all time, so of course the acting is superb. The mark of a great actor is that you completely forget that they aren't their characters while onscreen, and the entire cast pulls this off perfectly.

As for the OST...probably the best I've ever heard. This is the first time I've purchased music from an OST, and I bought not one, but two songs from this drama. One particular song is used to drive the plot further emotionally, and in the two biggest scenes it's used, it works perfectly to really capture the viewers' entire being into that scene. Those scenes hurt so much, yet I found myself watching them over and over because of how heartbreaking they were and beautifully they were put together.

I already want to watch it again, and I've just finished! This has definitely become one of my favorite shows (not just kdramas!) of all time.

OKAY. THIS DRAMA IS CRAZY GOOD.

The characters, the story, and the relationships were all so well thought out! I loved all of the characters, and they all have really wonderful relationships with each other- that are REAL. They fight, bicker, annoy the hell out of each other, get seriously frustrated with each other, and they realize that they all have their own flaws. And the story stays realistic, (funnily enough to read more say about a drama based on mental disorders) showing the true struggles people in relationships (wife, mother, girlfriend, brother, daughter, etc.) with people with mental disorders have to face. It's really wonderful. The cast acted out everything brilliantly- the emotions were conveyed very well and wow, some of the best acting I've ever seen.

AND THE MUSIC. *BREATHES DEEPLY* I DON'T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN TO Y'ALL HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS OST. LIKE... THESE SONGS. THEY'RE GREAT. THEY FIT IN SO WELL WITH THE SCENES AND I'VE DOWNLOADED A BUNCH OF THEM AND I NEVER GOT TIRED OF THEM (like I have with very many other songs in other dramas) AND WOW. A++++++++++++++++++ TO WHOEVER PICKED THESE SONGS. A FREAKING PLUS.

Anyways, I totally recommend this drama! It's probably one of my all time favorites now and I loved this drama from start to finish!

For a country still dealing with its own discrimination towards mental disorders, I thought this drama was just plain- WOW. Wonderful. Seriously, good job!!! (I'm in awe)

KMHM has a very different dynamic than It's Okay That's Love, but both include plots that actually focus on the premise of mental illness. KMHM does a good job of subtly showing us the pain that D.I.D. causes while keeping the show lighthearted and fun.

The on screen chemistry is also off the charts.

Pinocchio is not a very cliched love story, which reminds me of It's Okay, That's Love. They both have great themes/lessons to learn and take part of. Not to mention how phenomenal the two drama's actors are! Please watch!

      I definitely agree! Every single person in the drama has some sort of disorder, it's exaggerating the situations in real life and the lead actors are always fighting. They're not teenagers so why one of the two main actors always has to be in a bad mood and ruin the other one's mood?! It was really annoying, everyone was too stubborn and in the end they wanted to make up with a single apology.
      And one last thing, the plot could have developed better, I think they put too much focus on the "not very important" parts

    I am so disappointed! I feel like I would have absolutely adored this drama if it wasn't for the fact that I started it when I was in a major drama slump. :( Gahhhhhhh!!! I just need to watch it again in 6 months.

    I'm having withdrawals...even now... I miss it. I've never re-watched a drama for fear it won't be as good as the first time, and ultimately ruin my view of the series. Any drama re-watchers who can offer advice?

    Just finished watching and I think it was a great drama with unique characters,good storyline and amazing ending. Somehow it's just different from any other k-drama, I recommend it :) One more thing...I've watched most of the drama's that has Gong Hyo Jin acting and I can say that she has never disappointed me till now.
