    I rarely comment a drama in this site. Once i comment it must be a drama with a good storyline. This drama is unique. When you watching first or second episode, you will think “aah, it’s like me. The story of 3 couples (6 person with different type exactly). This 6 persons really resemble us. For example Yoon ji ho, someone who must giving up for her dream to be a writer because of reality (she must get a job that giving her money). This drama not pushed to be a drama with some fantasy (a poor with a rich, a poor be a rich, or something loke that). It just like our daily life. But, how could the writernim makes a daily life to be such a good drama? The way Yoon jiho and Nam se hee talk each other is something sweet haha

    Ive been watching korean drama since 2008 and I know which kdrama is good and just so so.. But I just want anyone to know that this drama is so worth it to watch .. Ep. 11 will make you go crazy.. It feels so nice watching the two of them . The leading lady I dont think she is that famous cause I only see her on Playful Kiss but she acted cute there . In this Kdrama she is very matured. And I only watch LMK few times too. The storyline of this drama is so different. It feels more realistic 🙂 and the leading lady here has a strong confidence on herself. Plus Bok Nam omg you so cute 🙂 new oppa lol..

    I just feel sad cause the last airing would be on Nov 28. I hope they will air special episodes..

    Cute cute cute!! Perfect actors for those 6 characters! Waiting to see if the old generations’ belief on marriage still holds true. Hmmm, which couple(s) will survive & grow with life… Jung So-min matured before our eyes – from Father is Strange.
