*** SPOILER WARNING*** The overall show is not that bad. There are a lot of hilarious moments. The main character of the show or at least the character who makes it lively is Seung Yeon, the little secretary. She’s cute and funny. She should have been a bigger winner in the end. I don’t know if you will agree with me but the publisher/writer relationship is awkward, too complicated and gets boring. I skipped several scenes because of that and I don’t get how they end up together because I didn’t feel any emotion, chemistry going on or love growing up between them. The ending is really disappointing . Yi Jin Soo’s character keeps getting on my nerves. I find him a real jerk until the end. Even if he tries to act good here and there, he’s never really honest and genuine about it and it doesn’t make it up for all the mean things he says and do to others. He never acknowledges Seung Yeon. This character is not loveable at all. Also the dance music coming up all the time is seriously annoying… I would have put 2 stars only if it wasn’t for Ham Eun Jeong‘s performance.
