All the actors played their roles very well and made their characters seem very human and believable. Each character had their flaws and good points. It was very easy to see the family resemblance between the characters because of their actions and helped give a more real feeling to the drama.

The writing was amazing for the sitcom and there were many times where I was rolling on the ground laughing.

The pace of the show was very good for a sitcom as each episode had it's own kind of mini-story but with many story arcs still prevalent.

The story was at times predictable, but at other times not what you expect.

The downfall of this drama would be the ending. If not for the ending I would have given this drama a perfect for writing and casting.

There is nothing extraordinary about the soundtrack of the drama, on the other hand the ost for the drama went well with the scenes and emotions of the characters.

The rewatch value score would be rated higher for me had the ending been different.

Personally, I didn't really like some of the coupling in the drama, but that's a personal taste.

The relationships were very well built and evenly distributed between the characters.

I would recommend watching this drama, even if you're told the ending is surprising.

I like it a lot and I was really addicted to it that I can't watch other stuffs than this but it annoyed me in the end. I could have given this funny sitcom a perfect 10 if not for the last 10 minutes of the show. I feel cheated. Really.. I even want to avoid the future works of the writers and PDs of this show.

So I heard that the PD was more inclined with Jihoon/Sekyung loveline and the writer was more to Jihoon/Jung Eum. That explains why we seen alot of good romance development of Ji/JE. To be honest, at the early episodes of this show I was more to Ji/Se then Junhyuk/Jung Eum. But as soon as Jihoon interacts with Jung Eum, I can see their chemistry very well and their love story was more believable than the Sekyung and Jihoon. Sekyung love for Jihoon can be classified as one sided love and so Junhyuk love for Sekyung. As for Jung Eum and Jihoon, their story is well developed that I really find the ending ridiculous! Like as if the writers/Pds are newbie. Arggg.. In short, the ending don't make any sense no matter how hard I think about it. The ending of this sitcom for me is the worst ending in all the korean dramas that I have ever seen and senseless to the bones.

All the characters are clear except Jihoon. It could be nice if the writer make the ending in Jihoon's POV since his character is very vague than that nonsense ending. There are several times in this sitcom when I thought of him as a "player" since I think he clearly enjoys/loves JE but there are times he cares for Sekyung though not in a romantic way. If only they let the ending be on Jihoon's perspective then I can accept whatever and whoever he choose in the end coz that will explain what IS inside his mind since we only see him in Sekyung's and Jung Eum's perspective.


I personally love the character Jung Eum played. She is closed to reality and very endearing. At first I liked Sekyung but she seems too pitiful and really contrast to JE's character.

Also, this is actually the third time that I seen Yoon Shi Yoon in a drama and heard that this was his debut onscreen acting. He is such an actor and very good looking too.


Overall, this sitcom is a must watch but I recommend that you guys avoid the last episode. I should have listened to the other reviewer of this show then I'll be less angry and disappointed.
