    It has Comedy, good looking cast, family moments, cute little girl, romance, deceit and revenge.

    I watched it 2 years ago and at the time I was 18/19.
    Once me alone and then with my parents.
    It is the longest drama I've watched but still 2 short.
    It has the most amazing revenge plot ever in any drama! It was just 2 perfect. And my parents was really crazy about it 2.

    The leading lady is beautiful, her cheating husband is HOT (lol), the guy who falls for her is sooo cute, the evil and backstabbing people around her are SOOOO killable (if u can say that).

    This drama plays with all of your emotions and makes you literary wanna go inside and twist some of

    I needed a jolt of makjang after watching a couple of satisfying and heart-warming dramas (PRICELESS, for example). PINK LIPSTICK delivered: it was 149 (150?) episodes of pure 'makjanginess' - deceit, screaming, scheming, hair pulling, and one very vindictive mother-in-law. The length of the drama will definitely put many viewers off (each ep is only 30 minutes though). I started watching this as filler to my currently airing dramas. I was very quickly caught up in the plot and was soon watching just this drama. It was so over the top that I enjoyed it.

    The romantic betrayal that formed the basis for revenge happened in episode 1. Once the betrayal was revealed, there was a very long flashback that lasted for quite a few episodes.

  • Both deal with revenge and an innocent women who's world is turned around when she finds out her husband and friend have an affair. The world keeps throwing her twists, she falls for another man but he is the nephew of the person she chose to help her get revenge on her ex husband and friend. You just have to watch it to understand it, plus the supporting characters are nice and bring some humor into the drama.
  • Both with a woman who wants to get revenge in the husband who scorned them and the best friend who betrayed them.

    This series would have been better if there was chemistry between the heroine and the person she ends up with. Overall this drama just did not live up to my expectations.
  • girl_on_fire Feb 8, 2014
    God its so frustrating in the beginning but once you get to the revenge its so exhilarating!!
  • girl_on_fire Feb 8, 2014

  • katrina21 Aug 20, 2013
    hmm 150 episode???? idk it sound like a good drama but is it good???
    • KangAhSsi Oct 4, 2013
      It's really good. At least I think so. :) But you have to wait maybe 30-40 episodes before it becomes really good. I didn't get bored with the first 40, but a lot of people do. xD I liked all of it, hehe.

      It's 149 episodes actually, but it just get better the longer the show goes on. So if you hang on the first episodes you'll definitely like it and want to watch it to the very end. :D

      Oh and you have to like revenge! xD

    The longest drama i've watched, yet, the "BEST & SATISFYING ENDING" i've seen compared to the other family/revenge 100+ episodes dramas. It is highly recommended.
