To get a boy from her past to leave her alone, Kim Yeon Do uploads a photo of a random guy claiming him to be her boyfriend. However, she does not realize the photo she chose was of bad boy student Ji Hyun Ho. When she ends up spending more time with him to make it up, she realizes that people have a lot more to them than what she sees.

Best Mistake is a 15 episode long webdrama that if I was to sum up in one word, it'd have to be Average, which isn't immediately bad or wrong. Like most average stuff, it's enjoyable to say the least, but I think that for the potential it has, the webdrama choose rather to let itself me mediocre and plain. It's biggest fault is that, in a platform full of content alike this, Best Mistake passes off as something...forgettable.

Starting with its strongest point: it's characters; their often mismatched personalities where the most enjoyable thing to watch. Besides the usual quiet but oh-so-quirky female lead and the bad-guy-is-actually-good male protagonist, there's more complex people that the drama could've explored further. Like the boy with dreams of being a tattoo artists that was the class's president, or the pretty, popular girl with fears of being abandoned; the fun and outspoken best friend of the female lead and even that one cute boy with a bad past with the police that we saw so briefly. There was so much hidden... diversity that I feel that the writers preferred to play it safe with a typical cliché love triangle and two leads that we find almost everywhere in dramas.

The plot, much like its characters, was surprisingly both bleak and unexpected, laced with the usual teen, high school romance based moments but with still some charm and personality to it here and there. The cast felt odd at first; it was hard for me to picture them actually playing teenagers, in high school, when their looks and voices wouldn't match the part. But their performances were nice, and so was the pacing of events.

Other thing that I thought could've been done better is the use of their osts. If I wasn't told that they were sung by NCT U, I would never have guessed it nor believed it. If you have such a good marketing "object", you should promote it wisely and make the most out of it.

I really liked this show when I first started watching it. It was only later, however, that I realized how basic it was. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but it was so similar to other shows I've seen and I was a little disappointed there was nothing that surprised me in the show. Nothing new.
It's nice to binge watch. It doesn't really have a deeper message (like A-Teen does), so it's very light.
What bugged me the most was "the guy changes himself for the girl" - even if it's only his hair and uniform. I really don't like it when people in dramas or movies do that without realizing there's no point in changing for someone. You should change for yourself, not for others. Whether it's your appearance or attitude.
I was also a little disappointed with the acting. The female lead was pretty emotionless. I'm sure all of these actors will get better in time tho.
