Likes: It’s good to see another romantic comedy with big stars like So Ji Sub and Shin Min Ah. They looked great together! Shin Min Ah’s character Kang Joo Eun was funny and easy. She always tried to stay positive and worked hard for everything. On the other hand, So Ji Sub’s character Kim Young Ho was very serious and his way of life was strict discipline and planning. It’s good to see these 2 main characters complement each other. Furthermore, the chemistry between the two was undoubtedly strong. They were so comfortable with each other. It’s cute to see the girl being more aggressive and flirty then the guy being more reserved.
Those fatty masks were so well done especially Oh Soo Jin’s! I think the girls were so cute looking chubby. Chubby Kang Joo Eun was very cute though she lost that pretty dimple.
Epic meeting at the police station! I enjoyed this part very much. Ex-boyfriend protecting his ex-girlfriend, ex-boyfriend’s current girl came to a rescue, ex-girlfriend’s future boyfriend came to testify. It was so twisted, it was awesome.
These drama has lots of great moments. Let’s take a look at my favorites…
- The umbrella-kiss moment – so that was Kim Young Ho’s taste of life. As coffee with cream to the chubby Kang Joo Eun.
- Meeting coachinim at Ayang Bridge moment – girl running towards sexy coach waiting with open arms!
- Boarding-departure moments – when one escapes one’s world, off to the other’s.
- Sexy moments – we get lots of these when our 2 main leads are oozing with sexiness.
- Pat-pat moments – letting go.
- Meeting the family moments – awkward!
- Proposal moment – our Kim Young Ho pulled a great proposal his girl truly deserved.
Supporting cast is awesome! Starting with the supporting leads, they were the main leads’ serious competition. Im Woo Shik and Oh Soo Jin can actually do a spin off. Other characters who made good impression were Snake and Ji Woong (truly Hyungs), Snake’s persistent girl, chairwoman/grandma who was always looking fierce, Young Ho’s assistant who always looked stiff but best supporting actor award, I’m giving it to the angry uncle-in-law!
Leading man in this drama is definitely the total dream guy! Trainer of Stars (given to have a sexy body), heir to Gahong group (rich boy), can do DIY treatment (a doctor), very helpful of others in need (a savior), can knit (a pink scarf for his girl) and last but not the least, can pull off an awesome proposal (lucky girl).
Ending with a promising wedding and short epilogue revealing an extravagant gift for grandma!
Dislikes: The leading men’s outfit especially the suits are not so impressive. Young Ho’s were always looking to big for him and had too much padding, he looked like an asthmatic person. Woo Shik’s suit prints were such eye sores!
So Ji Sub looks too thin, too tired and too pale in this drama. Far from the very sexy So Ji Sub in The Master’s Sun. He’s still sexy but not as sexy.
Awkward family meeting. Kang Joo Eun overdid it during her first family visit. They just could have omitted that part. It was too painful to watch.
Last episode was just lots of flashbacks!
This drama made it to top 10 in 2016. Watch video…
