OK. Some people won’t agree with me on this review, I know, but here we go! I generally don’t watch a drama unless it’s over or near the end in Korea. I heard sooooooooo much about it. All my friends were like ‘you should watch it. It’s so good!’ blah blah, blah… So I started watching it. Well, it was good but really not as good as I was expecting it to be, considering the huge buzz it created. To start with, in the reviews, they say it’s like Korean male version of Sex N the City. I think they are definitely not that daring. They should be more careful in their comparisons but the ensemble is still enjoyable! The cast is really good, Su Ro is coooool and funny. The little intros at the beginning of each episodes are funny. Although it is not an original idea, I loved the proposal dance. For the down parts, Ha Neul/Dong Geon couple often do a little too much, they obviously try way too hard to look cute and that annoyed me a lot, sorry to say. They could have been a lot more subtle in their game. Yun/Mae Ah Ri couple also annoyed me. Why does Mae Ah Ri has to cry like a baby all the time??? If they wanted us to understand that she was much younger than Yun, well, we got that! No need for her to cry like a baby. I felt like she was crying all the time and it kind of lessen the impact of their final scene where crying, at that moment, was understandable. Too much of any thing kills it, right? In the end, Tae San / Se Ra couple and Jeong Rok / Min Suk couple were the most interesting, the more realistic and the ones you can relate to easily. This drama develops a good story overall but because of the acting ‘problems’, for me, it doesn’t go pass the 4 stars. I believe it could have been much, much better.
