Likes: I won’t say no to another Lee Min Ho! Plus it’s Park Shin Hye as the leading lady.
Huge intro! Hollywood, mansion, car, rich californian lifestyle… it was exciting!
Eye candies! So many of them.
One kissing scene that I really like, they didn’t hesitate!
Favorite characters award goes to Lee Bo Na – rich, cute, pretty and she delivered her dialogues pretty well. Another one goes to the mom of Kim Tan, she was the star of the show.
Why Choi Young Do? Hah, the bad boy image, the looks, the hairstyle, the ride, the hotel and he always looks terrific in his outfits!
Why Kim Tan? Got to admit, I’m not yet over the Jun Pyo syndrome plus the surfing board, the car (at least when he was in LA), the top Chaebol label and yeah he fought for the girl that he liked.
Dislikes: It was overhyped! The story is just average… poor girl meets Chaebol, father disapproves and so on and so forth. It was lacking good side stories that could keep the excitement. What a waste of characters, there were plenty of them like what happened to Rachel, she started very strong. How about the pair Bo Na and Chan Young? Choi Young didn’t end up as the great Ji Hoo (BOF). The story became draggy very early because it was too focused on the 2 leads.
The ending? I was hoping for a good epilogue that could save it all but unfortunately none.
This drama made it to top 10 in 2013. Watch video…
