Likes: It’s a very likeable story! Unknown girl and popular guy at school getting together. How did it happen?! Yep, you always want to hear the story.

I love the main characters! The good-looking Lee Shin who plays guitar, snobbish especially with girls who like him but sincere when he likes someone. The bubbly, cute Lee Kyu Won who plays Gayageum and works hard to achieve what she likes to do. Both have strong personalities, they just suit each other.

I really like Park Shin Hye and I think of all her dramas I watched, this one is my favorite. She was great here and she looks good with all the hairstyles! The short and wavy one suits her best!

I’m so glad Jung Yong Hwa’s acting improved compared to when he was in You’re Beautiful.
Still more rooms for improvement but he did a great job here. He’s sooo handsome! The character suits him well.

Another special mention, Kang Min Hyuk! Boy, you can act! I guess I’ll be seeing you more in the future!

I’ve got to give credit to the stylist. Well done! Love how you dressed the 2 main characters but the best dressed award goes to So Yi Hyun!

All characters in the story have been given importance. There was a good balance. I will always remember the grandpa, Lee Shin’s dad, Boo Woon, Sa Rang, Yeo Joon and more!

Dislikes: The falling in love part was done in the early episodes. I was still halfway watching it and the 2 leads were going steady already. So as expected, they had to break up just before the ending but you know, they could have at least come up with a good reason why they couldn’t be together for a year. Anyway, just a smalll thing.

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)
