    I watched her first time in personal taste, and I liked her in that drama, but after Protect The Boss and Bachelor I got annoyed with her acting … ^^`

    Kdrama_fan Says:

    This drama is very absurd. Especially, the character of Baek Gun Wook is strange. He can get the company of his former girl friend by marrying her. What a naive story plot it is! This Mr. Kim character is also very unrealistic. This daily show will continue more than 100 episodes? Come on, make the story move forward.
