    this one is currently being aired in my country, so i have not finished. however, i read one of the comment how CSW looks like gay male here…hehe… i agree, absolutely, with that comment.
    i have made the same comment in CSW’s page, call me old fashion, old school, whatever, but i prefer males, real men, with short hair cut, i mean not not too stylish – you know, heavy bangs, curled and such – which to me make them look too, too “metrosexual” with a tinge of gay-ness.. but i also note that most of the hair style of korean males in the new series are like that, compared to the older series, like Jang Hyuk in “Bright Girl success story” the hair style was different then.
    i wonder, is it the influence of gay hair stylists perhaps..? hehe, i note that there are a number of gay people (no intention of discrimination or condescending here, peace) who work in that industry (fashion, make up, hair style and such).
    altho there is something comical about the portrayal of the story, but the funny-ness is different from, say, Secret Garden kind of funny (i like SeGA kind of funny), while it has its own entertaining points. i guess the low rating is because the leads here are, well, perhaps, a bit older..? and their kind beauty (both male & female leads) are the kinds that not all could appreciate..? of course CSW is handsome and Hyo Jin is beautiful in their own ways, however i prefer the Yoon Kye Sang (Pil Joo) to be with Ae Jung, instead of Dokko Jin, alas ! i am not the writer ..hehe…

    Thanks Tyna for the reply but this is not what I want. I am not referring to the Real ove theme songs.

    In the drama, Dok Go Jin has his mobile phone and I would like to find out where I can find and download his ringtone. Thanks once again.

    have finished watching this. to me, it plays a lot with “references”. of course by nature jokes, comedy etc are playing with references. you have to have the right previous knowledges or references to be able to get the joke or the funny part of it, otherwise it will be lost. an american joke or comedy might be lost to foreign audiences since they probaby do not have the right knowledge for it – something like cultural gap. and to me, this series plays a lot with that kind of references, it requires a certain amount of previous knowledge from its audience and to me, some of it are sort lost in translation since i am not korean. e.g. there are number of songs – theme songs – from other series or movies like Queen Seun deok, Secret garden etc that are being used in this series, in order to get the jokes/comedy across the audience have to know the context of each song – the scenes where those songs were being used, then relate it to the current scene, then you’d get the comical side, if not – then it is lost. also there are terms/sentences, e.g. at the end, which was being dubbed here as “healed already”… i dont know what is the intended joke of that one since i guess that is probably have something to do with other series/movies or something of Korean culture. and other references to cartoon characters and such. and probably that’s why the success of this one is not as high as, for instance, Secret Garden – i dont mean to compare it per ce, just for the sake of explanation. Secret Garden’s funny-ness is more or less more universal and original, does not require that much of previous, specific knowledge. just my opinion.

    if i were the girl, i would choose the doctor. he is more kind and considerate. the main lead is so boastful and conceited. he might change for the better
    yet because this is only in real life, character can’t be changed.
    i won’t be a masochist to fall in love with such guys.
    it seemed to me that that is the current hairstyle in korea these days but
    i find clean-cut hairstyle more manly. i don’t like the hairstyle of the main lead star.
    the story is more realistic no complicated plots at all and fast pacing. i found no fault in this series.

    miriam Says:

    this is a typical korean love story and just like most of those who posted comments here, i like it.
    one thing that i found sore in the story…… it is those POTATOES!! if they
    can delete the scenes about the potatoes, i think it will be better. i don’t
    like my lead male characters to be TOO SENTIMENTAL, like talking to the
    potatoes. it is a TURNOFF and it is not too manly. DokkoJin boasts of his
    being a macho here, so the potato thing is a big no-no. it demasculinizes
