Summary: Gong Shim seems to be the unluckiest girl with no proper job, an easy target for bullies and also lacking in the looks department. She meets 2 guys who are becoming her defenders. One is a lawyer who’s renting her rooftop room and the other one is an heir. She’s falling in love with the lawyer who she thinks is a simple guy but turns out to be someone else.
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Rich Boy Poor Girl

Seo Hyo Rim as Gong Mi
Likes: It’s a light-hearted drama with genuinely great leads. I love Nam Goong Min! His role here is not the usual creepy and super sexy but sexy nevertheless. Min Ah as Gong Shim is a pleasant surprise. She did so well for a kpop idol. She gave edge to her Gong Shim character (the way she looks, talks and walks.) A natural talent indeed.
Also the chemistry between leads was top and instant. I love watching them both. Eventhough there weren’t many kissing scenes but everytime our leads were together, they show an amazing chemistry!
You could rely on some funny moments. Entertaining side kicks, jokes, surprising scenes.
The outfits were quite realistic. Gong Shim’s wardrobe was very well thought of and consistent. Same with Ahn Dan Tae’s outfits. They both looked like commoners (0f course until Gong Shim got really pretty and begun dressing sexy and Ahn Dan Tae started wearing suits).
Moms’ fights and dads’ bromance! Love the scene when Gong Shim’s mom slammed Joon Soo’s mom on the floor and both dads found out they were both member of a fan club during their younger years.
I love Joon Soo and his unrequited love. Too bad Gong Shim wasn’t just into him but he’s got my precious Ji Hoo’s award (I will make this award official soon so watch out for it).
The ending was quite cliche but totally loved it! Gong Shim turning into a beautiful swan (with proper hair and sexier outfit) is a sight to behold. The typical one year after without communication turned out alright.
Dislikes: A lot of holes with all that kidnapping story. Too weak.
Joon Soo turning against his own uncle and mother was unimaginable.
Gong Mi, Gong Shims sister didn’t come too strong in the end.
