    WHY there is no ONE said anything about TIMFL plagiarizes Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tats (JDorama)
    although i must admit that TIMFL has more interesting story n visuals.
    BUT it still called PLAGIARISM.

    Sinopsis Because This Is My First Life Says:

    Couple in this drama I think less suitable. I think Lee Min Ki should be replaced with other actors.

    I like Jung So-Min, but not suitable with Lee Min ki

    but I loved with story…

    Reem Says:

    I liked their first kiss idea it attracted me to the drama; however, the lead actor has no emotions and is so cold I sort of hate him he should change a bite after ep6 at least because we started to feel bored.

    Thank u
    U made me laugh a lot

  38. 38
    reem2017 Says:

    Am I the only person who hate See hee he is so cood and even when he is jealous he just talked to Boknam and didn’t express his interest even when he is alone. I think that he is mentally ill.

    If I could talk to the writer I will tell him to change See hee attitude please. I like this drama so so much with its surprising ups but the only two things that keep me watching are the lead actress and Boknam although I feel like he is bad guy but he is totally cute

    Florensiana Says:

    danidevinenz Says:

    This is probably the first time I’ve started a kdrama that’s still airing… and I almost regret it because a week it tooooo long to wait for episodes and I want to binge watch the entire series haha!! But I’m absolutely in love with this, I adore Se Hee’s character ,some people think he is toooo cold, but I think that’s what I like so much personally and it makes the small breakthroughs of emotion have so much more impact because of it! Enjoy <3

    Simon K Says:

    Very interesting drama and I like Jung So Min a lot. Not sure about Lee Min Ki though. The main character is emotionally cold but that do not mean he should have no facial expression at all.

  48. 48
    AJ Castrence Says:

    I enjoying the twists in this drama. Min Ki’s portrayal of Se Hee is very effective.

  49. 49
    sanjinyeon Says:

    the passionate kissing scene was so beautiful with the line ” His fragile heart, that might have been broken before, came to me” without any words but that kiss explain a lot of feelings of See Hee for her. The love story of the three girlfriends are really unique but exciting and who knows maybe it really happening in real life.
