I found the drama really cute, the slapstick moments were great, I'll also have to say that the acting was surprisingly good, considering for most of the lead cast, this was a debut drama, and all in all I'd say it was quite a nice watch.
What was less than perfect? The story is overly simplistic and I feel that it seems unfinished, or at least unpolished. There are moments when you could just imagine how the story should really develop, but you see a very superficial and a stitch-work dialogue that just fills in redundantly in exchange.
It also feels a bit dragged on at times, but still an enjoyable drama overall.
All in all, I'd say give it a go, you'll certainly enjoy the comedy, though don't expect to get a performance of a lifetime from the actors.
This series is really best described by 3 words: funny, short& sweet.
