    I don't know what they were thinking naming this drama Cunning and single again,when actually Ae ra is not like that! It should have been named differently!! Something along the lines of: No longer married and once again single,or Blessing in disguise.I don't know anything but cunning single lady or cunning and single again!!
    Don't get me wrong,I like the drama,my only problem is with the title!!

      Thank God someone finally mentioned it! I really thought that she was going to be a conniving gold-digger based on the title and description, but she's not like that in the slightest.

      My thought exactly. And the description in the wiki is completely misleading.

      I hear ya, I really hope that the despicable Gook family shrivels up and die, especially SH. YJ will redeem herself by getting the company back for JW, that is my prediction, but the writers, like you said, screwed up royally, I'm so with you on that.

    The final two episodes will air next week. They were thinking of doing both episodes today, but decided against it.

    That whole family is crazy, I'm sure of it now lol. You can say they love hard, but if someone told me more than once they don't want me, Id leave. I don't feel bad at all for brother or the sister. Really funny drama though. I'm enjoying it, flaws and all lol

      That's not love, that's nothing but selfish despicable obsession, SH, the brother is so much worse than even his father, I hope they all shrivel up and die, every last single one of them. Although I predict the sister, YJ, will redeem herself and save and get back the company for JW, that'll be the only thing I like about her. Totally despicable, shallow, self-centred, sick, pathetic, and all of that is a serious and grave understatement of that whole Gook family, no wonder the wife/mother left, oops, ran from that despicable pathetic selfish trash of a family...

    it's soo sweet drama! ^^, but I don't like Na Ae-Ra personality, because her character shows that all women dates just because of money....

      Are you watching the same drama as the rest of us or did you just read the synopsis and made this comment?? Unlike in a fantasy world where love conquers everything and happily ever after endings, in real life just love between ppl isn't enough. You know basic requirements for humans are food,clothing and shelter right?? and you need money for all three. Just love isn't enough. If any of the above three are not satisfactory it'll cause strains in a relationship over the time no matter how much they love each other. Its in human nature.
      If you are mentioning about 1st episode when she started dating(taking interest) after finding out about his intelligence and ability to succeed what's wrong with that??? Everyone starts dating for different reasons. If some starts dating based on looks(attractiveness) will you complain about that too?? For me its how she behaved in their relationship matters most. She literally gave her everything in that marriage even in those difficult times for four years and even then the reason for the divorce was not the money. You simply have no basis to judge her character as money-centric at any point in this drama. I have watched quite a few rom-com kdramas and have to say Ae ra is one of the properly fleshed out(closer to real world) characters I've ever seen. Most of the heroines act all goody goody like only love matters and money is not important at all. It works in dramaland but not in real life.

      Some MDL commentators like to think they'd marry broke losers with no job and ~love~ would be enough to get them through the hard times. And yes, she gave everything...even her child's life for the relationship to work. I freaky love that AR isn't a typical candy female lead.

      haha sorry guys xD, at first then i watched first 7 eps, i think only that way, but if you watch more we know more and more about her real personality, not that side what she shows to everyone, so i think i am little soon juged her, cause she hide her good side, so guys don't be that critical! :)

    I sure hope YJ redeems herself and her actions by the end, I think she's extremely shallow and despicable of a person for what she's done thus far, but I have faith in her that she'll do the right thing in the end, whether it's saving JW's company for him, or something, I just hope she see's the change in AR and does the same for herself, change herself and her attitude. I so loved how she told her father off, and let him have it straight between the eyes in ep11, now she just needs to take a good long hard look at herself, and I do, I really hopes she changes and redeems herself. Her father and brother are cooked, especially her brother, he deserves to die an old and lonely death like his father...

    I just marathoned the first 14 episodes and this drama is great. I was bit skeptical about Ae-ra's character from reading the synopsis and I'm glad she's nothing like what is described in synopsis. I like her character overall. Feisty and reserved at appropriate times.

    • docnty 4 days ago
      I think the sister, YJ will come around in the end and redeem herself, probably something to do with saving the company from her father and brother, but I just have a feeling, she will redeem herself somehow, I have hope for her, but her brother, I have no words strong enough to describe how much of a jackass idiot, prick, bastard, despicable, evil, trash of a shallow person that he is, and his father's not much better...

    What do the Gook siblings are expecting seriously ?? Do they think that if they marry Ae Ra and Jung Woo they could live happily ever after ? Like,you know, this is totally normal that my husband is my sister-in-law's ex-husband...

      One of the unrealistic flaw of the drama.

    • goldenmellow 2 days ago
      They are crazy and selfish. They "love" AR and JW, but aren't thinking of their feelings. Another thing is, the father would never even accept AR in the first place. She's a much older divorced woman. SH doesn't even think of how awkward she'd feel or what she'd have to go through.
