    Love this drama a lot. Ji sung perform a great acting here, funny, attractive and of course very entertaining. Once you start watch this series, you won’t stop until it’s end. Kind of addictive. One of must see Korean Series ^_-

    This drama is HILARIOUS! Since I first started watching it ‘today’ I haven’t stop laughing!

    @479 Indria: I totally agree with you about ‘you won’t stop unti its end’ because its hard for me to stop! I periodically pause to like comment here finish chores, etc. and hurry back to the drama; just like I’m going to do after I finish commenting here!

    The story line is wonderful and the humor is like a breath of fresh air. There are some of my favorite actors in here…Chairman Cha (Park Young Kyu) who plays PTK’s father in I Do I Do. This man has a beautiful speaking voice. Then there’s Cha Moo Won (Hero Jaejoong) that also acted in a Japanese drama that was excellent! Seo Na Yoon (Wang Ji Hye) who acted in How To Meet the Perfect Neighbor which was also excellent! Also the grandmother and Na Yoon’s mother are some of the most wonderful supporting actresses in my book. Well, I’m got to go and watch some more!

    Wow…I really need to take my time and reread before submitting. My grammar is appalling! hehehe

    @480 Ivy: I don’t know if you’ll return to comment on this drama again. Yet, if you do, I’d really like to know if this was an adaptation of a real life story? Anyone else, you’re welcome to reply if you want to, as well!

    I enjoyed this Drama from the beginning till the Ending. Chi Kang Hee & Ji Sung seemed like a Real Couple. I love to hear they have married in a Real Life :-) 2 Thumbs up for Song Jung Hyun- the director.

    Very Good Ending.

    I also give 2 thumbs up for the screenwriter Kwon Yi Young for this magnificent, creative expression of humour in the lives of chaebol families and a ‘commoner’ who has finally stood up and made an impact in their lives. An ex-thug is the only and I repeat only person that could kind of get away with this. Being fearless is the key to No Eun Seol’s survival and she wears it WELL! I’m glad that the thought of toying or playing with Eun Seol didn’t enter the minds of the 2 Cha cousins, Ji Heon and Moo Won; 1st of all, it wouldn’t have been allowed by Eun Seol! hehehe

    BRAVO…BRAVO…BRAVO to everyone before and behind the cameras…to the production teams and investors!

    usa-mary Says:

    I can’t say enough about watching this drama! The scene where Chairman Cha walks in on Ji Heon talking to the faceless cut-out is oh so funny! His suggestion instead of the cut-out that he would rather see him with had me ROFLOL!!!!!

    From beginning until the end, I stayed fixated, engrossed, and entertained the entire time. I really didn’t want it to end, so I’ll do a re-watch to see what I’ve missed!

    usa-mary Says:

    Now I’ve seen quite a few kdrama chaebol blind date scenes of prospective husbands, but this one really stood out! Normally, the men are the usual well educated, manicured, well-dressed, spiffy clean-cut, narcisistic, money conscious-to a fault, knows your lineage, give or take a few momma’s boys who refuse to have separate homes, ready to jump your bones (at the chaebol female’s suggestion, of course) brats!

    Yet, this one is so different from the norm that I ask if everyone would please join me in ‘applauding’ the writer and director for selecting this ‘rad’ sketchy, bandana head-wrap wearing, free-spirited, leather clad biker dud that met with Na Yoon! When I saw him, I was almost as shocked as Na Yoon was! Though most likely educated, he appeared to be the type that would smash empty beer cans against his head while out partying with his motorcycle buddies! Oops, wrong country…they do that in movies over here in the U.S.! He looked highway bound and boiler-maker ready! hehehe

    This show became boring towards the end. As soon as the main couple got together, the excitement fizzled out and died.

    a romantic comedy, a good reprieve from the serious dramas i’ve watched these past weeks. i thought the proposal scene was morontic, nothing exciting. some people would probably like it. it’s a 7/10 for me.

    i like this sweet

    Violet88 Says:

    Hillarious, funny, cute, sweet, great storyline, great chemistry, great execution, great casting/acting.. countless words to describe how awesome is this drama.. all in all; daebak.. Love the OTP, 2nd pair (Mo Woon/Na Yoon), Ms Wrestler, Chairman Cha, Grandma.. i love how they relate to each other and love for each others..

    The Cha cousin is really childish and their constant “fighting” is too cute to handle.. elevator scene is funny (Chairman Cha/Ji Heon/cover CCTV, Ji Heon/Eon Seol/Chairman Cha/push Eon Seol towards Chairman Cha in reflex…) hahaha..

    Ji Sung is very cute as Ji Heon and his physical movement/facial expression really convincing under all kind of scene (funny, scared, panic, in love, charisma, etc)….
    Eventhough i found Choi is not that pretty but she did well in her role that makes it believable both man fall for her and and she deserves their love/affection since her personality
    Somehow i can’t help but think that Lee Bo Young could pass for this role (Eon Seol) as well.. :).. sorry, just my wishful thinking to have this lovebird couple to act in rom-com as OTP.. no offence to Choi fans..

    Nevertheless there’s some plot that i felt could have been better without, e.g. secret fund plot that makes Eon Seol as the suspect for info leakage, separation/break between JH/ES.. JH claim that he promised his father not to contact ES at all.. and he really didn’t make any kind of contact to her at all.. not even a phone call/message.. it’s not supposed to be that way for a couple who really in love with each other.. it really makes the other party hurt and lost faith..

    Put that aside i’m still giving this drama solid 10/10.. lurveee this drama to bits… peace.. :)
