    I love this drama. I watched it and I couldn’t stop laughing. The story line is so good and it’s same with the men life in reality. Lol. All men is just a man. They’re just a ordinary woman when they see a prettier girl than their girlfriend. They cheat and flirt. Hahaha.

    I love this drama but I feel the Colin storyline and Do Jin trying to protect Yi Soo by staying away just messed up the momentum of the drama. Then there’s Me-ahri, ugh, a lost opportunity for great character growth. Despite all that, it was hilarious and fun to watch. I had no clue the ratings were so high in SK wow! I guess they wanted something different and more risqué.

    I didn’t like this drama. The story could have been interesting if the characters had been portrayed differently. First, Kim Do Jin
    is supposed to be handsome but I find the actor quite ugly (sorry). It prevented me from losing myself in the story. Same for Im Tae San! In addition Im Tae San character is way too dramatic about the relationship between his sister and Yooni. In fact, Yooni is the only male character who was pleasing to watch and had a sweet personality. On the other hand, the female characters are really pretty but completely immature! It was annoying to watch Im Me Ah Ri cry all the time and act like a child. She never stood up for herself during the whole drama. She just went from obeying to her brother to obeying to her lover (crying between, during and after the transition). Seo Yi Soo (Kim Ha Neul) is no better. Incapable of taking care of her business, hiding in the bathroom and waiting for the men to save her. I think this drama could have been great without all these stereotypes and all the… drama! (Sorry for my English)
