First of all I don't know why the drama is called 'Chun Ja's Happy Events' when there wasn't that many happy things lol - the entire drama had a melancholy vibe to it with a few happy moments here and there and romances blossoming around - but definitely nothing to be considered "happy events" for the most part. and I also don't get why they named it after Boon Ho's mom 'Chun Ja' when the drama basically flows around 'Boon Ho' and her life... O.o

I enjoyed pieces of the drama as a whole but there were quite a lot of what I call "draggy" or "tiresome" scenes/parts - the first 33 episodes were really good then it dragged from episode 38-58 and even after that in-between some more good scenes it was still dragging on one thing that I hated until almost episode 80! -_- Then it got good again until someone else came to try and wreck the happiness *sigh* then it dragged for a couple episodes again 104-106 - after that it was good until the end (even if I wasn't able to see the last 5 minutes of the drama :'( ...) To be honest I skip watched most of the drama - I only watched Boon Ho/Joo Hyuk's scenes together and a few of their scenes apart and a few scenes of Joo Ri and Jung Woo (skipped a lot of their scenes later however). I didn't watch anyone elses scenes involving their own stories and lives b/c I didn't care about them. I went into this drama for Joo Hyuk and Boon Ho (their characters) so... yeah... and I could only find this drama on Soku a LONG time ago when I downloaded it from them - I checked today so I could see if I could find the last episode 111 pt.5 to watch but I couldn't find them anymore :/ and it was raw on that site anyways (it is a Chinese site).

Story is about Boon Ho who under pressured circumstances pretends to be her dead bosses girlfriend since she is pregnant and needs to protect her unborn child from her rotten ex and his even rottener mother. b/c of this she and Joo Hyuk form a bond which later paves the way for Joo Hyuk to fall in love with her. (don't worry the "secret" doesn't last the entire drama it comes out rather fast).

Cast: Joo Sang Wook as Joo Hyuk - My absolute favorite character in the drama (why can't JSW play more characters like this??! He's so good at these kinds of characters and these characters make me find him attractive - while his "comedic" dramas I find him unattractive) lol - He is from a rich household, he lived overseas for awhile and had his heart broken, he comes back for his brothers funeral and stays and starts to be drawn to Boon Ho (although he doesn't know it at the time) and he lets himself be dragged into a "relationship" with another girl that his mom wants him to be with and the girl herself chases him but he was as cold as ice and stone in it. His face was like a rock that wouldn't break and whenever he'd see Boon Ho his face immediately broke into a smile ^_^ He is a guy that when true to his feelings is trustworthy, reliable, honest, and giving - I really liked him and in the end he was my main reason to finish the drama ;)
Seo Ji Hye as Boon Ho - She is sweet and nice but way too "passive" (can't think of the right word to describe her) but she always felt OVERLY guilty for things she did and or people she hurt unintentionally and she is also too full of 'noble idiocy' that I hate in drama characters -_- She'd sacrifice her own happiness b/c of her guilty conscience - seriously annoyed me at times. She also cried a lot. But other then those negative things she was a generally nice person and her character outside of those factors was likeable. I liked her with Joo Hyuk the best.
Eun Soo (they baby) was so loveable - such a cutie pie!!! I really liked having that baby in almost every scene after episode 40 ^_^ I loved seeing Eun Soo, Joo Hyuk and Boon Ho together ^^
Jung Woo and Joo Ri were an entertaining couple at times and at times a bit obnoxious (more like Joo Ri was the obnoxious one) and she could be silly and a bit cute too while Jung Woo was more serious and calm as opposed to her quirky weird character lol

Music was nice - I liked the songs by Kim Byung Hwa and Jang Seung Hyuk the best ^_^

Re-watch value.... probably not - I might go back and "record" Joo Hyuk/Boon Ho scenes and delete the rest of the drama lol (takes up less space that way. If you're a fan of Joo Sang Wook you might want to find it and watch it however as his character is the best in the drama!
