Likes: Seriously, the story is not really important here. It’s all about the boys! Yes I repeat it’s all about the pretty boys in this drama! It’s a Cinderella story alright but I’ll get to her later. Let’s talk about the Kang cousins first…

Kang Ji Won (Jung Il Woo) – tough mechanic, rides a motorbike,  very pretty and rich! He’s an orphan so he’s the guy who seems to suffer the most emotionally. Has an unrequited love for his cousin, Kang Hyun Min’s first love Hye Ji so basically you just wanna hug and tell him to give up all his sufferings and come to you haha.

Kang Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyun) – trying to appear like a playboy all the time to cover up his love for Hye Ji. He drives hot cars, hotter than his chicks! His cocky attitude is more charming than annoying. Playful like a child but extremely gifted with a supermodel face! He knows that he’s rich and he’s definitely not afraid to show it off.

Kang Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) – our sweet and kind musician but everyone knows those are never enough to win your girl. He’s quite romantic doing his confession through a song. It made the girl feel loved? No, in this case actually awkward as she was into someone else. It was always poor Seo Woo. But wait, among the 3, he’s the one I’ve got a crush on! Not the character though but the artist Lee Jung Shin of CNBLUE.  Been waiting for him to be in dramas like the other members. My wish had been heared! Thank you!

Eun Ha Won (Park So Dam) – our Cinderella! Not the prettiest. Also not the tallest but you’ll love her like how the cousins love her in this drama. Hard-working, sincere and has the ability to lead and love, she won the heart of everyone especially her preferred Kang cousin Ji Won.

Chemistry! Kang Hyun Min and Hye Ji have the best chemistry but our leads Kang Ji Won and Eun Ha Won are not much behind especially at the end when the story became more focused on these two.

So generous with kissing scenes. Though our leads’ first kissing scene occurred in a much later episode, more were given at the end. Sky Ranch and stairway kissing scenes were my absolute favorites!

Sky House is over the top! It’s befitting our 3 pretty princes although I thought it lacked proper security haha.

Quite thrilling last episodes when grandpa and Ji Won had to go into liver surgery while Hyun Min tried to win the votes of shareholders against grandpa losing his position as chairman.

Lovely twist! When Ji Won and Ha Won found out that they had met before during their mothers’ funeral. Their love got supported by undeniable fate!

Love the OST! Check out…

I just love the ending. Everyone had a  happy closure. Finally a blessing from the powerful grandpa to our Ji Won and Ha Won. The quite childish Hyun Min taking responsibility over his love. Seo Woo back into what he actually loves most, busking. Secretary Yoon Sung’s decision to protect the company. Grandpa’s successful surgery and him making-up with his ex-wife (cute scene). Of course, picnic reunion as ending.

Dislikes: The boys sometimes are obviously wearing too much lipstick. Too much! They’re sooo pretty already.

Though the story shouldn’t be taken seriously, minimal exaggeration of annoying characters should have been applied. Like Ha Won to be less nagging, step daughter and mother less annoying, fake father less stupid…

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)

This drama made it to top 10 in 2016. Watch video…
