    I watched this drama 3 times already.. the most unforgettable drama i have ever watch! The first time i get so obsessed over the actor, Jang dong gun ssi i miss you in drama i hope i could see u in another drama soon. Jang dong gun is the number 1 highest paid actor in korea. Her character in AGD is so different with his character in his movies, in this drama JDG looks soo different but he said in the interview that its almost like his usual character in real life . Aaa i feel like i want to watch it again 🙂

    The best Kdrama I’ve watched after AAE! JDG you’re the best! So handsome and gorgeous for your age! You still got that charisma where you captured lots of women’s heart! You’re swoon worthy, an eye candy, indeed! Wish you could do more dramas like this when you’re not doing films or movies. Please? I miss you acting in the small screen. Can’t seem to get enough of JDG! So obssessed, I keep rewatching AGD!

    @angel1201, the title of the opening theme, “Smile” feat Jay Kim. You can download it at mp3skull. Hope you can find it. If it’s not available there, you can find it in other site just type AGD’s OST. Hope it can help.

    amri jang Says:

    @shoishiev, don’t you think it’s kinda rude promoting another drama using this thread? Why don’t you go to the “I do I do” thread instead? We’re all raving about AGD and everything about it, then here you are talking about another drama? Please respect the readers here. You’re out of line and totally insane discussing something that doesnt even exist in this thread. If you can’t do that, then don’t leave your comment here.

    amri jang Says:

    @KDaddict, JDG is much better looking than BYJ. I think BYJ has lots of Japanese fans because of “Winter Sonata”. But Korea loves JDG. He also has lot of fan base in other Asian countries and Mexico. Personally, I’m a huge JDG fan back in his AAE days so I never really cared about other Hallyu stars. He’s the only Korean I love!

  12. 862
    amri jang Says:

    @lovemoon, AGD was really meant for JDG. It took him awhile to accept the role as he was busy filming the “Dangerous Liaisons” in China. But since AGD’s production waited for his availability, he considered doing the drama. As per their respective ages, LYH is the youngest at 38. JDG’s 40 not 41. KMJ is 41 and KSR is the eldest at 42.

    love… love.. love a gentleman’s dignity! one of the best drama that I ever watched!!!

    My apologies to those ive offended. As I finished reading all the comments in this thread, I realized that this is a diverse world where we all differ in culture, language and personality, hence differ a lot in personal taste and choices. As they say to each his own. So when I read the whole thread objectively, it occurred to me that we have our own preferences that what may be good for me, will not be good for others. Different perspective, different approach and perception. I guess the fanaticism in being a huge JDG fan that made me sensitive reading those “not so nice” comments about him. Being his #1 fan, I don’t care about story line, plot or stuff like that. As long as JDG’s on it then, I’m all for it. Honestly, AGD is entertaining and find it funny in some ways. I never really thought JDG can be so funny, too. As far as his good looks is concerned, I think he has aged with grace. He’s still good looking and not that inferior compared to other Kpop idols. The only edge they have over him would be youth but looks wise, JDG all the way. Again, that’s my own opinion. If you think otherwise, well I respect that coz we highly differ in one another. But still glad that a lot of others like me still find JDG attractive and awesome. I remember reading a news article about JDG saying that when he was in his 20’s, he never really cared about his looks. Then in his 30’s, he thought going to the salon was embarassing. But when he heard some of the comments about his looks in AGD and after watching the first 2 episodes, he started visiting the salon. What an honest man, don’t you think? So maybe if he had been so vain and conscious of his looks in his 30’s, wow we’d enjoy a youthful JDG in AGD. The writer went on and said, it was the first time JDG received negative comments on his looks in years. So that means, JDG is really perfectly good looking that even the media say so.

    @taraJJ, it’s nevr too late. Watch the whole series and you’ll enjoy it. It’s a feel good drama. Very light and no stressful scenes. Highly entertaining and and lots of eye candy if you’re a JDG fan or CNBlue fan. Enjoy and join the thread. 😉

  16. 866
    taraJJ Says:

    @amri jang
    haha I’m not even JDG or CN Blue fan.. So Ji Sub is my first ever favorite Korean actor crush 🙂 and my my fave kpop is JYJ.. but I really… really enjoy this drama.. there’s no character that I hate in this drama.. love every moments of AGD.. all roles has strong characters even Soe Yi Soo’s student…
    and I find the scene when Kim Do Jin proposal to Soe Yi Soo in the end of eps 20 is so romantic, I don’t find it in another KD scenes remind me of some hollywod rom-com movies…..
    i dont listen to CN Blur before but now “hey you” and “my love” become my playlist 🙂

  17. 867
    amri jang Says:

    @taraJJ, I didn’t directly say you’re a JDG or CN Blue fan. I was saying it in general. As I’ve said, we have different preferences and I respect that. Anyway the whole drama is fun and worth your time. If others didn’t enjoy it, then it isn’t really their kind of drama. Maybe they like something else.

    pasby Says:

    i agree with comments of Tyuy – 791/2 – regarding Jang Dong Gun. I saw him in the Good Morning Mr President and here. he wears a thin mustache here. He doesn’t really look fresh and healthy here, too hollow cheek, eyes..tired looking.. not sure why, either on purpose for the character (all work and no maintenance/groomng? hehe) or just himself not being in his best? so altho i am not into Jang Dong Gun etc (here and the President movie), I like this series, but since i have watched so many, so i guess the novelty wears off (it’s a natural thing isn’t it?) and so the excitement is not as much. and i also agree with the comment about hairstyle (someone mentioned about idiotic hairstyle previously) but i guess that is also part of the characters being played – perhaps middle age men who still want to look and regarded as “hip” ? or whatever the term for that .. hehe. i notice that hairstyle plays a very significant part in korean dramas, you can be a completely diffrent char wearing diff hairstyle, same actors/es always with different hair styles in each series – different coloring, tone and cut, even within the same series like Fashion King where Jang Mi Hee as Soon Hee, when she first appear her hair was nice, i think her hair was nicely swept – same length – to the side but then when her character was getting meaner the forehead part was cut short, I mean shorter than normal which made her look not nice, unnatural etc and well…i guess that adds to the gruesomeness of her character..hehe. the writer is the same as Secret Garden? i think she showed much more wittiness in SeGa but then of course that’s just my subjective opinion, no offense.

    Sue Says:

    Yes. It’s my first drama with Jang Dong Gun. Didnt fell for him until towards the end of the drama.. Gosh that man could talk with his eyes!!!!!

    Absolutely love it!!! A truly enjoyable drama which could make you laugh and think back to all your first love.

  25. 875
    Rosie823 Says:

    Just finish watching this drama….. wow very entertaining … no boring moments full of laughter and joys … highly recommended.

    For those young K actors who are doing the romance drama learn from Jang Dong Gun – He’s the best, very romantic, his action WOW IT MAKES MY HEART ……. his gaze…. his touch…. his kiss….. Falling in love with him since All About Eve. CONGRATULATIONS & WELL DONE JDC.

    Thank you to all the couples here for making this drama very entertaining. ENJOY watching all the cute moments between the couples.

    My advice to JDG – pl. gained some weight. You look rather thin & tired in this drama but your charm and handsomeness does is still intact.

    Lulu Says:

    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.

    Tirangue Says:

    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)
