Not completely sure how I came across this little series but I am glad I did. Story | 5 high school students have an exclusive club where they pick a mission for each day and have to complete them all by a certain time. The leading lady, So Eun, becomes involved and helps the guys complete the missions given to them. It is literally a very basic plot. Extremely basic actually, but with something so simple that the writer(s?) were able to expand greatly and even though the story isn't anything special, it ended up being a feel good drama. Cast | I knew 5urprise were all actors/singers but I didn't realize they all did a series together. They all had specific type of roles and the characteristics and personalities fit everyone perfectly. Kim So Eun was a pleasant surprise. I didn't realize that was her until she took her glasses off. I loved the chemistry she had with all the male leads! I liked her character development the best. It wasn't too fast or too slow thankfully. They put her at a nice pace and her character was quite enjoyable to watch. Music | Ah. Great thing about having actors who sing, they can sing all the OSTs and I really loved them all! Hey U Come On was my favorite song from the drama. Rewatch | definitely. it's so short and extremely easy to get through. It was also a nice break from all the typical melodramatic dramas i've been watching lately. Overall | Such a nice drama. The first few episodes I kept saying - why. why am I watching this?! - but it was nice to see an actual story develop, character chemistry develop and watch something that had more fun elements than dramatic. I do wish this drama was less of a dramatoon (is that the right word?) and more of an actual drama. With the same elements of course. Again, the story was easy and simple to follow,so maybe I just enjoy school dramas more than I should. I really loved watching this cast together and the random cameos. If you're in a drama slump, I highly suggest watching this to get you by!
