    RLOL…lovesickness…talking out loud to yourself! This drama makes me want to ‘embrace’ it if that makes sense to anyone on this thread. Its among the BEST dramas that I’ve seen this year. Thank you…Thank you…Thank you Gugu for recommending it to me!

    CEO Cha and Na Ae Ra…actually, there are simply no words to describe their excellent acting and chemistry…really…no words! Everyone’s acting in this drama is phenomenal, and I’m just on ep. 13!

    Well, this we know for sure. Kim Jung Won can’t keep what he overhears to himself even if it meant his life. Forget about mentioning to him when its a secret. He’s a walking, breathing ipad, iphone, tablet, billboard, morse code, smoke signals, cirrus, tele-type, twitter, radio and any other device used to broadcast news.

    @usa-mary: Weeeeee!! You managed to watched it!! Its too sweet right this drama. Its the only one that i cld watch over and over without getting bored. All the characters plays well and no one there is particularly annoying or mean. Glad you love them too.

    @Gugu-304: Managed to watch it? Chingua, I’m on my second time around and enjoying it even more!!!

    There are soooo many funny scenes in this drama. I truly agree with you about watching it over and over without getting bored. I especially like the scene when Ae Ra was talking to that tall, plastic ad figure. That was hilarious. It reminded me of an experience that I had one time when riding public transportation. A man was sitting perpendicular to me in a seat. He pulled out a small packet of trail mix or nuts and offered to someone in the seat next to him. It would have been fine if the seat was occupied. It was empty. Then, he pulled out a bottle of vodka, but didn’t offer that to his imaginary guest. LOL The stories I can tell you.

    @Gugu-304: Managed to watch it? Chingua, I’m on my 2nd time around already. I totally agree with you. This is one drama that I can watch over and over again without getting bored. Ohhh, there’s a few characters that I could poke fun at, but since the drama has ended, I’ll pass.

    I must point out that there are some hilarious scenes in this drama. I’ve found that we can only share so much on this thread now a days. It wasn’t like that 4 years ago. Of course, I wouldn’t reveal the end, but I do enjoy commenting on funny scenes.

    @usa-mary: 2nd time already!! Tell me about it.. I watch this drama whenever i could not zzzz. They made me all warm n fuzzy with love. Am so glad you love them. Another drama similar to this is Emergency Couple. But that drama gets a tad boring in the middle till abt epi 13. I do repeat that drama but from epi 15onwards only.

    @Gugu-307: Yes…can you believe that! I actually pulled a night owl. Something I don’t practice doing often, because I need my beauty sleep. Besides that, dark under eye circles are only cute on panda bears. LOL Now, I’m watching a little each day and its even better since I’m not sleepy. When I think about the leads, the word ‘chemistry’ doesn’t even enter into my mind. The best word that comes to mind is natural. So, natural that I’m singing everyone’s praises.

    Gugu Says:

    @usa-mary: Hahaha… I pulled an all nighter for CSL too the first round. Then went to work and when i got home, was too tired to zzz. The very next day was down with fever and all sorts of allergies dropped by. I loved this drama as they concentrate on the main cast and few selctd ones. Best is meanie characters are kept at minimal. I laugh and cry with them so much. Can’t get enough of them. This is definitely an awwwwww factor drama.
