Likes: It was hard to resist another romcom with two big names in Korean drama. With the art gallery as the backdrop, it was promisingly artsy and gave us ideas and details how this kind of world works in the background. Definitely, another learning opportunity.

Park Min Young paired with Kim Jae Wook, I was absolutely looking forward to it! Both have previous successful projects under their sleeves especially Park Min Young, who had been a star in big kdramas in the past. Kim Jae Wook, on the other hand, it was my first time to see him in a lead role. My wish was granted, I was desperately waiting for him to grab a male leading role. I thought he was more than ready for it. However, how they did in their roles here was a different story. I would categorize Kim Jae Wook’s role as a “like”. Here’s to why…

Kim Jae Wook as Ryan Gold – He came out as the really cool and talented Ryan Gold at start and although that character didn’t last so long, Kim Jae Wook did so well in turning Ryan Gold as the melancholic, broken person who was once abandoned by his mum. He wasn’t perfect. There were time when he appeared unsure but boy he just looked sooo good the whole time. Got to give credit to the costume designer for dressing him up so well.

Chemistry wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t over the top but it wasn’t bad. The two leads carried this out well.

Generous with kissing scenes! Now come on, who wouldn’t like that?

Was it just me or Cha Shi Ahn was really cute? He was so cute and adorable that I got to dig up more about him. Voila! He’s a YG baby! Check out one of his MVs 해야해(heyahe). So cute!

I love the twists towards the end. It was so predictable in beginning that having some unexpected twists kind of caughtup with the dull mid-part of the drama.



I love the story and mystery behind Lee Sol’s paintings. It was a big plus in the storyline. I thought it was so touching to see them pieced together.

I so love Eun Gi! He might not have been as well-dressed as Ryan Gold but he was so genuine, he looked as hot as RG.

Dislikes: I unfortunately found Park Min Young’s character here very irritating. It didn’t suit her at all. You could tell she was trying hard but she always came out unnatural. I’m a fan of her since Sungkyunkwan Scandal and it’s the first time I dislike her in a drama. I also dislike some of her outfits! Those checkered and ruffled dresses were sooo tacky!

Cliffhangers were so misleading!

Too obvious Dyson and Baskin Robbins ad placement!

Ending got too corny.

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)
