    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.

    Great drama with a wonderful script. I am cheering the main couple on and hope they find happiness together. The Kim Chee making episode was so funny and entertaining. That’s when I knew they should be together FOREVER.

    Just realized the main actress played one of the main characters in “Father is strange” but must confess she plays this roll so good, now one of my favourites.
    It has been a jolly good drama, bit of a different story line to the norm so that makes it more entertaining, looking forward to the last two episodes, hopefully will have the nice ending I hope for

    Lee min ki is ❤. Let’s admit that He is not so good looking like joongki, changwook and any other oppa out there. But damn i found him very cute and can’t take my eyes off of him every time he’s on the scene. He has extraordinary charm that makes me feel inlove 😂😍❤. Try to watch him on his movie Spellbound and monster. He is really good. 👏 👏 👏

    This drama is really good. Worth to watch. My top 1 among the other airing drama now. Excited for the last 2 episodes.

    And also.. Bok nam my gahd!!! ❤❤❤

    iLy Says:

    There’s many of male lead character with quiet, cool, and no expression, but this one – Nam Se Hee (Lee Min Ki) is one of the best male lead I’ve ever watch. Jung So Min in Playful Kiss faced same personality too (by Baek Seung Jo) and now deal with Nam Se Hee. Maybe she will always pair with male character with that personality in drama? LoL…
    anyway, I’m very impressed. I rarely posted comment in this website. This drama catch my attention, make me want to posted in here, so, this drama, is very recommended for you.

    Stopped watching kdrama or doing anything at all because life gets in the way.

    And I love how this drama makes me feel warm inside, after a while. Absolutely love the storyline. Light backstory, more about realistic issue, which made you think and feels.

    Love seeing Se Hee & Ji Ho together. Their relationship is not rushed. And Ji Ho narration is <3

    Definitely sad that this drama is ending soon.

    USA Says:

    Park Byung-Eun is a great actor, and made his character come alive in this drama. He and Esom (she was good) could have also been the lead actor/ess in this drama. Glad all 3 couples ended up together, thought at least 1 couple wouldn’t survive…

    sanjinyeon Says:

    super cute ending with memorable lines like ” you’re like a MAC OS – new, interesting, intuitive and very ideal, but my mind and body still miss WINDOWS “. Even Woori has perfect expression every time, that cat is so adorable. The writer, director,actors and actresses and all the staff who works here are all brilliant and thank you for this wonderful Kdrama.

    ‘marriage is the beginning of a relationship’ – i thought that it changes the existing relationship, for better or for worse. it’s a dissection of the relationship between man and woman in different settings. but what bothered me was the relationship between se hee and his dad. what happened 12 years before gave him some trauma that would probably scar him for life. it’s a good watch.

    The last 2 episodes ruin all the beautiful building.. dissapointing 🙁

    iLy Says:

    after watch this drama (and rewatch for 3rd times), I found some weird issue. It’s about Se hee’s trauma made by his dad. If his dad just disagree Se Hee marrying Jung Min, I don’t think that’s a big deal. Maybe the trauma was because after rejected by his dad, Jung Min had stress and his baby is gone. Jung min left him, and Se Hee need someone to put his anger to, and he choose his Dad. He just can’t blame himself because he think if they got married that time, that would not happened.
    But after a while, Se Hee continue his life (Jung Min too). He can graduate from university, get a job, buy an apartement, and life for twelve years until he meet Ji Ho.
    maybe the scar is about being abandoned by Jung Min, the one he loved. Not because his dad.
    But in end of 15th episode, while Se Hee is crying, he said “the person who will be my one and only love is gone”. so he didn’t love Jung Min?

    I had rewatch this 2x and i still cant get over this drama. This drama is so good because this is not a typical korean drama where one of the hero or heroin is rich and vice versa.I never knew abt lee min ki before, and i do agree that he is not as good looking as other actor such as ji chang wook, park bo gum but he definitely has his charms and i cant take my eyes off him.

    silverswan Says:

    For my opinion, to me it is an okay drama and I do not think it is a perfect drama to get an award. It is boring at certain parts of the drama , and to me unlike many chose the handsome actors or beautiful actresses. If they cannot act naturally no matter how handsome or beautiful they are it is useless . Just an average drama for this one , nothing special or unique
