Cast & Credits
Story- Really funny in the beginning but does get a bit dramatic towards the second half. The twist involving the female character kind of weirded me out but I guess it made the drama more interesting? I don’t know. While it was something I hadn’t seen before in a drama, I felt uncomfortable at times because it brought the quality of the romance down for me. After episode 12 it did get to be a bit draggy and when the end finally came it was welcomed=)
Acting/Cast- Love the leads. They had a really great chemistry. The acting by the female lead was outstanding. I'm a new fan of hers. Kim Rae Won was Kim Rae Won, not bad but not outstanding either. I didn’t like the supporting characters at all. They were too meddlesome. Park Shi Hoo was quite forgettable in this one.
Music- Very good but not something I will listen to outside the show.
Rewatch- I would watch this again b/c i loved the leads but not for a while cause the story was so average.
Overall this is your average romcom with a twist.
Although the story is a total wreck with all the drama cliché, Kim Rae Won and Jung Ryu Won gave justice for the whole show. It even garnered 17% viewership which isn’t that bad in Korea if you ask a couple of netizens.
The story is about a movie maker (Choi Seung-Hee) who caused the death of his girlfriend. After the incident, he has the trauma of driving the car and finding love again. (I know… I know… I told you the cliché!) Then one day during a movie project he meets Kim Bok-Shil, the exact replica of his dead girl friend’s face. So in denial, he started to follow her around and discovered that she’s a complete different person. The girl was a country bumpkin, the opposite of his refined dead girlfriend. As he gets closer to her, they eventually fall in love… but there is a catch: is he in love with her face or with her as a person? (Told you, the cliché on same faces.)
After this, there were a couple more twists which led me to tear my hair out in frustration, but I bore it down because for the love of Rae Won and Ryu Won. Aren’t they just perfect for each other? Their names are even a match made in heaven! (Wishful thinking.) Aside from the main casts, there’s the perk of the comedy within the drama which made it more bearable to watch.
