  22. 22 : Rowena Says:

    I had a chance to watch this series during the long weekend. My copy has a very bad english sub. However, some words are understandable enough so I did patiently watched it to the end, if only for it’s romantic plot. Am not saying that it is an outstnding drama, but nevertheless I like the way the friendship developed slowly but surely into romantic love. It’s worth watching also considering the good chemistry of the lead stars. This storyline has been used many times, but this series has given it a new twist. And, yes the lead guy is the “Mr. Hong” of Love Story In Harvard, right? His character here is more adorable, but I prefer his looks in the “Love Story…”. Give it a try!

  23. 23 : M'sian Ahjumma Says:

    There’s something I can’t put my finger on Lee Jung Jin. I mean his facial expressions. Maybe he had botox coz his face appears stiff and cold at times. He strives to break out from that mould many times but still I don’t feel any warmth radiating from his expressions. His built and dressing on the other hand is cool and sexy but I can’t say the same for Soo Ae. She’s too skinny and her face dominates the screen! I don’t think they have much chemistry together and throughout the series, I was wishing for Jung Jin to be paired with some other sexy star. The ending is predictable to say the least!

  24. 24 : M'sian Ahjumma Says:

    I can’t quite put a finger on Lee Jung Jin. I mean his facial expressions. His face appears stiff and cold at times and he tries to break from this mould throughout. Yet I can’t feel the warmth radiating from his character. Maybe he had botox or something. But his dressing and built is handsome and sexy. However I can’t say the same about Soo Ae. I mean she is too skinny & her face dominates the screen! How I wish the hero had a sexier heroine. I fail to see any chemistry between them. As friends perhaps but lovers???

  25. 25 : M'sian Ahjumma Says:

    I can’t quite put a finger on Lee Jung Jin. I mean his facial expressions! They are stiff and cold and his skin is stretched tight when he breaks into a smile. Maybe he had botox or something. He tries to break out of this mould at times but still I can’t feel any warmth radiating from him. His dressing and built however is handsome and sexy. But I can’t say the same for Soo Ae. She’s too skinny and her face and pouts dominate the screen! I don’t think she is likable for my taste. Throughout the series, I wished for a sexier co-star for Jung Jin coz I can’t find any chemistry between him and Soo Ae. They’re made for friends but lovers?????

  26. 26 : M'sian Ahjumma Says:

    Lee Jung Jin appears too stiff for my comfort. He could have botox done or something which explains his expressionless face. However his dressing & built is handsome and sexy. I can’t say the same for Soo Ae though. She’s too skinny & her face & pouts dominates the screen. I can’t find any chemistry between Jung Jin & her. As friends perhaps but lovers???????

  27. 27 : M'sian Ahjumma Says:

    Lee Jung Jin & Soo Ae does not do it for me. I mean “Chemistry” Jung Jin’s expressions are one tracks & he had difficulties trying to break out of this mould. Even when he smiles, he appears without a wrinkle. Soo Ae is too skinny & her face & pouts dominate the screen! They’re better off as friends but as lovers?????

  28. 28 : cris Says:

    hi,how to download is movie……

  29. 29 : HannyBae Says:

    did Lee Jung jin also play in Love Story in Harvad (as an evil lawyer, I forget the character’s name)?

  30. 30 : Helen Says:

    I love this film… I saw it 3 times! The chemistry between them works for me. They are both great actor and actresses! I think it’s funny and heart warming!

  31. 31 : estela Says:

    I loved watching this drama. I find it romantic and sweet. I loved the characters, the dialogue as well as the lead actor and actress. The story is very true to life. I’d like to watch it again in the internet with english subs. Does anybody know where i can see it?

  32. 32 : dete Says:

    how many episodes in total ? 17 or 16 ? any body knows? thanks.

  33. 33 : Ivy Says:

    it’s 16

  34. 34 : Elmer Says:

    This is a great drama 😉

    believe me it is worth watching it!!!!

    I Love how their friendship that turns to be a true love 🙂

    I really love this drama.

    You can watch this in wwww.mysoju.com

  35. 35 : Kimberly Sarreal Says:

    Rowena is right, really bad english subtitles, none the less, it’s so far entertaining and interesting (up to episode 6). A lot of dialogue I wish I had better subtitles to understand the bantering back and forth…

  36. 36 : Kimberly Sarreal Says:

    Totally worth the time and money. Really cute drama, enjoyed both actors; Lee Jung Jin & Soo Ae.
    Lee Tae Sung was a nice surpise after seeing him in Time Between Dog and Wolf, such a creep. He really pulled off the young sensitive jock in this one… Looking forward to lots of good stuff from him in the future.

  37. 37 : crisa Says:

    i watched the this series already…ang i felt captured by it…my emotions burst…it gives me strength and it also reminds that in life when you failed, you should stand up again and still go on until you succeed…it also signifies that friendship is very important in our life…even if we have our different lives after college..we should not forget the friendship we had in the past..we should cherich all every single time with our love ones and friends as wel….thank you… merry xmas…hapi new year…thanks for reading.. =p

  38. 38 : Cindy Says:

    I just finsihed this drama and I absolutely loved it! It’s very suitable for me as I am over 30, haha! I ejoyed the pairing up of Lee Jung Jin and Soo Ae. I think they have good chemistry, better than Choi Ji Woo and Lee Jung Jae in Aircity!

    The characters of Lee Jung Jin and Soo Ae in this drama suits them very much and I think they look good as friends or lovers!

    Anyway, this is the kind of Korean drama I enjoy! Happy endings!


  39. 39 : petite Says:

    I love this drama !!!!.
    It is one of kind that can touch us and make us want to see it again and again.
    I never get bored watching this drama.
    Highly recommended for K-drama addicts !!

  40. 40 : panyangbear Says:

    This drama was one of my favorites! Luckily, my DVD subs were also good so I really enjoyed this all throughout the last episode! Lee Jeong Jin is irresistibly HOT!!! thumbs up for the drama!!

  41. 41 : maria Says:

    highly recommended…will not waate your time..

  42. 42 : marvin Says:

    ‘was really touched by the story… im 30 too and i also grew up with my friend, went to the same school… stood by each other, set up dates for each other, irritated each other… and at the end… we MARRIED each other, when did it happen? how? we honestly don’t know… sometimes you don’t need to go looking out for love. sometimes it just finds you… it was there from the very start.

  43. 43 : alchocoholic Says:

    I soooooo wanted to like this drama especially after hearing all the hype about it but i just couldn’t. I found the first 3/4 of the series slow and kinda boring and the storyline really only picked up towards the last few episodes for me. It’s a shame really, because lee jung jin and soo ae make a really great couple and were brilliant in those last episodes.

  44. 44 : Gemini Says:

    … what a lousy ending!…. a forgettable series…. you wasted my time… it did not bring the best of the leading stars who became famous with thier series (Love Story in Harvard, Love Letters)… too bad…

  45. 45 : Ann Hash Says:

    I LOVE THIS DRAMA!!! I wish it never ends hehe~ By the way, Lee Jung Jin really looks “good” in this drama ;p

  46. 46 : dqps Says:


  47. 47 : dqps Says:


  48. 48 : 7 Says:

    Actually, I hate to watch dalja’s spring so if its like dalja’s spring ,i think i will hate to watch it…

  49. 49 : HannyBae Says:

    Love it…love it… loveeeee it. Le jung jin and Soo Ae so funny in this drama.

  50. 50 : Chul Soon Says:


    great comedy-drama!! i love them both!! tha subs are goog unlike other Korean Dvd subS that is very hard to understand!

  51. 51 : Hollywood Says:

    It’s not to bad a drama, however, the Japanese version “Hotaru no Hikari” is better.

  52. 52 : yeri Says:

    I like this drama in terms of LJJ is sooo cute in this series! Really like movies about friendship-turn to-lovers kinda stuff. I like the scenes where Hyung Tae shows how he cares for his best friend,really nice and sweet! Though the ending is predictable, I mean, of course we all want that kinda ending right? I don’t mind the ending is rather dragging, but at least it’s a happy ending.
    By the way, I think Hotaru no hikari is different than this,though is about friends-turn-lovers as well,but it is good too.

  53. 53 : 2010MAL Says:

    i just watch this drama..like it so much it’s diffrent than others dramas..so touching…i want friendship like them…mayb one day…

  54. 54 : Kelly Says:

    Bad drama+lousy ending.Wasted my money and time.Never watch!But some parts are really so funny that made me rewatch again and again.

  55. 55 : mina Says:

    I didn’t even understand the ending….

  56. 56 : Masria Says:

    Opinion is never right or wrong.
    I think the 1st episode is really boring. But I forced myself to watch more of the drama. And it gets better! I even watch 5 episodes in 1 day. I like the fact that the main actress is not the “act cute” type. The ending is very frustrating though…made me wonder what was going on in the director’s head. hmm…overall, worth trying!

  57. 57 : Sasha Says:

    I bought the dvd and it had really crappy subtitles..didn’t make any sense at all.. Then I watched it on mysoju and the subtitles were great and made perfect sense… and even the drama is pretty good…if you have seen a crappy dvd i recommend you to watch on mysoju and the ending will be totally different…if you don’t understand Korean like me!

  58. 58 : Soul Collector Says:

    I really really liked the drama. Maybe because its about ppl around my age, its a lot easier to relate. Love how they describe the relationship and the fine line between women and men. the main actors have beautiful friendship. I probably consider this drama as one of my favorites. sensitive and sweet.

  59. 59 : Pauline Says:

    I came across this drama by chance and didn’t think much about the show cause the main actor and actress were unknown to me as I have not watched their dramas before. After watching the show, I changed my mind and despite the poor ratings, it is a good drama about friendship and love. I consider this drama as one of my favorite dramas too.

  60. 60 : angela Says:

    best-friends-in-love type.

    the ending is touching.

    hehe!! 😀

  61. 61 : Maggie Says:

    I think this a good Drama.. how the a friendship turns in love… i would like to have a best friend as Hyung Tae.. so Touching. Is true that the firsts episodes were a little bit boring but i watched the next episodes and i think is a good drama… The end was a little bit strange and good. but i think that a excelent end would be that Hyung Tae asks to Nan Hee to get married. The songs are excellent , i love it!

  62. 62 : Elnaaaaaaaaaz ! Says:

    it’s diffrent than others dramas..so touching…I consider this drama as one of my favorite dramas .I really really liked this drama.

  70. 70 : BEST Says:

    This is probably the only Korean drama that did not insult my average intelligence. Very strong dialogue, good editing and acting. Isn’t Lee Jung Jin hot?

  71. 71 : jennie Says:

    Yeah, I agree with you. Saw this a while back. I remember thinking that the dialogue was good..pretty decent drama! Didn’t understand why ratings were so low too!

    I love this drama,so entertaining!!daebak i love lee jung jin

  107. 107 : tc Says:

    I like Lee Jung Jin in his latest drama, One Hundred Years Inheritance and whilst waiting for new episodes, I decided to try out this drama since he is the main lead here.

    What a lovely surprise – this drama is so wonderful and underrated! Lee Jung Jin is so much better looking and hot in this drama than his current one. His chemistry with Soo Ae is so awesome and really one of the best I have seen in Kdramas so far. Their acting was so natural and believable. I must say this is one of best friendship turned lovers genre that I have watched so far- even better than award winning Tdrama, In Time with You.

  108. 108 : mystisith Says:

    @tc, I did the same as you: Discovered the lead in AHYI. Nothing interesting in rom-com land lately so I started watching this (saw 3 eps so far). It’s a very good surprise! Funny, romantic, sounds real. Not a single boring moment with fillers. It should have had better ratings than that awful 7GCS… I wonder why MBC lost its touch when it comes to rom-coms.
