Let me start off by saying I was really superficial watching the first episode and almost dropped it because I didn't think the lead guy was that attractive. So ridiculous!!! This guy turned out to be one of my faves!! His dorky/nerdiness is so endearing and I was so attracted to how all in he went with his feelings. It was sexy to see how confident he turned out with knowing she just needed to catch up to where he was at in their relationship and was willing to wait for however long. This couple is pretty cute and even the secondary couple was cute as well. Pretty light and fluffy nothing too dramatic or super evil characters. Maybe a bit of petty jealousy but nothing too annoying. I like how you see her growth and trust in herself and those around her, where she eventually does grow out of all the luck stuff. Would def give this a chance, don't be like me and judge a book by its cover!
I don't watch scary stuff. In fact I can't even watch trailers to scary movies! Ha! To be able to actual watch this and finish these episodes makes me realize how amazing this drama is! The storyline and characters made everything worth enduring, even those bursts of creepy/scary moments. The comedic relief was everything! Very hilarious and I thought both actors did an extremely well job portraying their characters and also they are some of my favorite actors so I'd probably believe anything they are in.
This drama was so funny and light! Nothing too majorly serious happened but it was a story about finding that one person who can move your heart and accepts you for who you are. I enjoyed that when they did finally decide to be together they didn't waiver from their relationship. I liked how he never gave up on his love for her and no matter what he was not giving her up for anything. The main couple was really endearing and I think that's why I gave this such a high rating, I really like them together. Gong Hyo Jin is turning out to be one of my favorite actresses and if she's in it I am willing to give it a shot. (Except maybe It's ok, that's love, I'm sorry I could not get through the first episode, it seemed all over the place! Will maybe try giving that one another shot at a different date)
I think that this drama was one of the most well-rounded ones I have watched. I feel like I flew through the episodes. I was watching the first episode and then it's like I finished the drama. It just went by so fast because it just felt so enjoyable watching every single episode. This is not a drama with like murder or somebody trying to kill somebody, it does have quintessential love triangle and also somebody who's trying to backstab somebody else. Really you watch it for the characters and their stories and you become involved in their Triumph and their defeat, and you root for them and hope they make it in their life. I read somebody else's comment I think about how the writers were a little bit of trolls in this drama, and I couldn't agree more LOL. They were trolls in the best possible way. This drama really made me laugh it made me cry sometimes but really was just super enjoyable to watch and I really recommend you taking like a day or 2 days to binge watch it all if possible because this was just a joy to watch. The couple would just keep me smiling their relationship with each other was just so much fun to watch and just made me so happy LOL I was sad that it ended. I definitely recommend you taking the time to watch this great drama.
First of all I DESPISE love triangles soooo much! Of course that's part of the M.O. of all Korean dramas (with the exception of maybe a handful). So imagine my surprise that I was able to put up with ALL of the love triangles in this drama. There were multiple love triangles and not just love interests, but family and even between friendships. I think the honesty the characters had with each other was what kept me moving forward watching this. This was actually a really good and interesting story and the actors did a really good job. I really enjoy Gong Hyo Jin, she is one of my favorite actors to watch and usually I enjoy everything she does. This was great to watch, not really fluff fluff, but not too heavy on the heart. Def recommend this when you are wanting to watch something a little unconventional.
I did not fly through this drama. I kind of took my time and watched it when I could, it was a good story overall. I think some part of it just frustrated me to no end. It was the whole story line with the best friend and no matter what she did it was like she was never punished or she never took responsibility for how horrible her actions were. I think her character just frustrated and angered me and I really wanted to see her suffer LOL. I guess I was just being petty about that character and her storyline. But I kind of feel like all the adults who did bad stuff did not really face any consequences in this drama. So it's okay to watch but please keep in mind some of the situations are very frustrating and they don't get taken care of in a way that is satisfactory, at least to me. The main characters are really cute together, although there is a little bit of second lead syndrome.
This drama was actually on my to watch list for the longest time. Actually this was recommended to me by a mdl friend and I decided to go ahead and watch it since I had at one point planned on watching it to begin with. I am so glad she gave me the recommendation, if she hadn't I probably would not have started this drama. It was short to-the-point super enjoyable, funny, cute and the main leads were awesome. I definitely recommend this drama if you're looking for something short cuz you will speed through this. This is definitely a good drama if you're waiting for something else to come out or if you really don't know what to watch I definitely recommend this. Super enjoyable I loved it the main guy so attractive lol great drama! And I mean it did have kind of like a love triangle but not really nothing really crazy happens in it but it's really really good to watch.
I don't know if it's because I read the synopsis and didn't really read the reviews (except just to clarify it did have a happy ending), I went into watching this with zero expectations. Boy was I completely surprised! Normally I strongly dislike flashback scenes, this drama was basically 2 dramas in one with the past and the present kind of being told simultaneously, but for some reason it didn't matter to me. Sometimes you just connect with a drama right off the bat and can't explain exactly why, that's exactly what happened watching this drama. From the first episode and all the sadness and brokenness that the characters portrayed I was hooked. The acting was great from both sets of leads (past and present, yes they did have different actors play the younger versions, so a bit confusing) and the story was fabulous, kinda makes me wanna read the book since I heard the book is even better. I really unexpected loved this drama, yes its a little emotionally heavy but it has its moments of comedy and happiness. I'm even thinking of re-watching the condensed 4 episodes, def recommend!
Usually I enjoy the acting so much more than the storylines for most dramas I watch. Thus was the first time where the situation was completely opposite. I loved this story so much! It was the first time I had seen a storyline revolving around gamers especially involving female gamers. I most definitely enjoyed no love triangles lol. The main couple trusted each other and were confident in their relationship. I liked that the female character was strong, intelligent and confident. Unfortunately I can't say much for the acting. The acting was super stiff and like robots at times, it was extremely frustrating to watch. The story line was what kept me going even though it was super slow and I felt like they could've told the s story in half of the amount of episodes. If you enjoy stable relationships and a fresh story but at the same time are very patient and are ok with slow plotlines I would def recommend.
Really funny and heartwarming story about losing yourself and what you want and at the same time trying to figure out who you are. The story was ok, some parts felt unfinished but the characters and the acting is really what kept me going back for more. I really enjoyed both couples and enjoyed that the lead female didn't turn into some wilted flower and kept her can do attitude and no BS attitude through the whole drama. Really good, nothing too soul shattering but definitely very enjoyable.
This completely fit the mood I was in when I watched it. Its super fluffy and light. I really liked the story and characters so I kept watching. If the episodes weren't like 15 mins long I probably would not have kept up with this since the acting was not that great lol. Pretty good if you just wanna pass the time quickly until you find another drama to watch.
I think it this drama is classified wrong. This is not as much a romantic comedy as it is more of a melodrama. I say that because the story actually revolves around a mystery about a stalker like through almost all of the episodes. I think that storyline kind of brought the series down a little bit, just because I feel like it dragged on way longer than it should have. For some reason the characters could not figure out who it was, if they would just have communicated with each other it would have gotten solved a lot faster. I feel like that storyline was just a waste and I could have done with just having the romantic comedy aspect, and really just following the growth of the main character's relationship. I like to watch the hate to love relationships and this was right up my alley and I think that is why I stuck with the drama and I completed watching all the episodes. So I would recommend this if you have patience LOL the main characters are really fun to watch together and they are such a cute couple and there chemistry is pretty funny and endearing.
I started watching this drama since it was a recommendation from another gender bender. I ended up liking this one alot more than I thought I would. I think the chemistry between the 2 leads was hot!! Lol I think if there chemistry wasn't as good I probably wouldn't have kept watching it. There were parts of the storyline that I thought kinded dragged on or I didn't really see the point of why they included those scenes. Also the 2nd lead couple were kinda boring lol I'm sorry to say I did fast forward most of the parts they were on the screen, sorry! Some of the acting was over the top but I am kinda getting used to that with any asian dramas I watch. Woulld def recommend but do go into it with low expectations and I think you would enjoy it more. Would def think of rewatching if just for the fact (possible spoiler ahead but I need to explain why I would rewatch) that I want to see the scenes where they were together after he had already found out "the secret"
A cute story........nothing too major or emotionally moving happens. Its a nice fluff drama that you can watch when you don't really feel like doing anything else. The OST was ok I think what I enjoyed more were the actual sound effects that they would insert, hilarious! Pretty funny overall, good to watch to pass the time.
This is a good drama for someone looking to maybe become emotionally stable again after watching an emotionally draining drama :) it's pretty light and fluffy and good to pass the time. The ending seemed kinda abrupt and I didn't really like how it seemed maybe she wasn't gonna get the opportunity to learn. I do like how you kinda get a behind the scenes look at a restaurant kitchen and how cut throat becoming a chef is.
