Han Sun Hwa as Kang Se Ah
Huh Jung Min as Lee Hoon Dong
Yoon So Hee as Nam Hyun Hee




Likes: A fun, light-hearted drama. It was good to watch it with a heavy drama on the side.

Ki Tae and Jang Mi’s characters together is hard for me to imagine in reality but it’s good to see it at least happening on screen.

Kim Hae Sook did it again by acting as a potential evil mother-in-law turned nice. She’s always great!

2AM in the house in the person of Jung Jin Woon! Still some work on the acting but what a prety face!

It ended happily. Specially, happy for Ki Tae’s mother to finally dump that ass of a father.

Dislikes: Yun Woo Jin as lead is still weak. He got upstaged by Jung Jin Woon (by looks).

Joo Jang Mi character was a bit annoying.

The story though fun was very common.

My Rating: 7 stars! (10 as highest)
