  15. 15 : Kdrama Lover Says:

    Interesting drama, well-done! I do not know well about all the new casts here but they really good acting up their characters especially Park Ha Sun. She is funny and logic in her role as Hana.
    Jung-suk always enjoyed his solo status in eating and drinking making me wanted to see more of his different varieties cuisines introductions. Really having fun to watch this show beside their storylines.

  17. 17 : AmazingK Says:

    Ha Sun just lacks screen presence. Empty pretty face. She cannot cry for God’s sake. And always makes that same pouting facial.
    Like the lead actor though. He’s the reason I watch this as a go-between boredom period waiting for Park Bo Gum and Yoo Jung.

  18. 18 : ally Says:

    Gong Myung is so cute!! Fighting!!

  19. 19 : Jyenie Says:

    Dropped this drama half way through ep 2, find it very very boring.
    BTW, they think you are antisocial or unpopular if you eat or drink alone in a restaurant in S.Korea.

  20. 20 : Jyenie Says:

    Dropped this drama half way at ep 2, very boring to me.
    BTW, they find you antisocial and unpopular if you eat or drink alone at a restaurant in South Korea😂

  21. 21 : ally Says:

    Omg!! They kissed!! Poor Gong Myung… puppy love is over!! :((

  22. 22 : silverswan Says:

    Actually it is not really interesting to watch this drama. I do not like the actress as she likes to twist her mouth , she is pretty okay but with her often making kind of funny act with her mouth she looks terrible
    It is a so so drama, do not think it will be awarded

  23. 23 : USA Says:

    Good character build on the main guy, but who or what the main actress is unclear & confusing. Since Korean culture frowns on one-person dining out, this drama is a telling story that it’s okay to want to eat/drink by yourself. This society will see single dining with its aging population & lower birth rate. The secondary characters–the students are more interesting than the main characters except some parts are disgusting — about pooping. It’s gross & sickening which indicates the writers must be running out of juice to build their character/story for the students. It’s a harsh reality for their economic mobility or lack thereof for this country’s future middle class. Writers must do a better job on the main female character because she’s frustrating to watch anymore.

  24. 24 : USA Says:

    It seems current dramas in Korea are all about women dominating men. This is a tributary state mind set — following the US culture of politically correctness. One gender shouldn’t dominate or subjugate another. Male bashing in the US via media is running its course thanks to the works of femi-nazis lesbians who hate their father, brothers, uncles, etc, and liberal proponents of globalism who want to rule the world while minimizing the weak and small nations. Feminism and globalism want to silence the majority. Logic and humanity have been replaced by fear and intimidation. Korean writers and dramas are doing the works of femi-nazis and liberals, so viewers – be critical of their underlying messages in these dramas.

  25. 25 : Ellen Says:

    I think that I found nice drama after finished “W”. Actually, I won’t watch a Kdrama which I not familiar with the actors but since each time, I watched this recent dramas, come across “Drinking Solo” very unique title and give a try. This drama suits my taste and really won’t disappointed me. I love my mean Prof. Jin, “High-quality Trash”. He had a characters that make you laugh and angry of him at the same times. Can’t miss this show!

  26. 26 : Rita Says:

    To those of us who love food are really fall in love with this drama. From the very beginning episodes, they introduced a lot of the unique and delicious foods make me mouth-watering and gosh! I didn’t know their storylines is so damn good with each of their characters are super amazing. I don’t about you but for me, this drama is really logic in our real life. There are many of us soon like the solo lifestyles. Seeing Jung Suk enjoy his solo drinking and eating to fullest and lately, his self-important style of dating really make you flatter. How can you hate his hilarious characters.

    Actress Park Ha Sun is my first-time see her in Kdrama. Yeah, her looks is very plain and I don’t consider her as an attractive actress but in this drama, she suits to the characters of Hana, girl next door. Blended very well with Jung Suk’s characters make me feel they are getting cuter.

  27. 27 : Strawberry Says:

    Episode 13 make you love Prof. Jin so much. How confident and arrogant of him falls in love for the first-time with Hana? Very cute.
    Pity for Gong Myung knowing that his jerk brother falls for Hana but at the same times, I am happy Chaeyeon admires him. Anyway, I am not approve Gong Myung ships with Hana b’cos ages gap and teacher-student relationship hardly been liked by me.

  28. 28 : Ellen Says:

    @Strawberry, what I tell you? This drama is really good, but soon missing it. It’s already episode 14 by today.

  29. 29 : Solo Fan Says:

    Wish this drama open-up to some people like Jyenie who thought you are antisocial or unpopular if eating alone in the restaurants. South Korea and many developing countries are adapting to solo dinning as western.

    I don’t think you always go with bunch of friends to restaurants when you getting mature unless you’re still a kid or in schooling. So offensive the ways you said. Like you party-fan shouldn’t watch Kdramas b’cos you don’t have times to be alone and don’t let me see you again comment here since you dropped this drama half-way.

  30. 30 : Beatrice Says:

    Mmmph….I love this show! Prof. Jin is so happy now…he’s dating now.

  31. 31 : Sally Says:

    In episode 14, Prof. Jin should know how hatred of him? All his colleagues hate him, leave him out and in the meantimes, he’s adorable and funny.

  32. 32 : Sally Says:

    Prof. Min’s impersonation of Park Bo Gum is hailirious funny!!! LOL!!!

  33. 33 : Yoan Says:

    Yeah! yesterday, I burst into laughter at Prof. Min impersonating Oh Sung Moo and today, he impersonating Park Bo Gum. Those scenes are hilarious….his own trailer.
    Love all of the casts in this drama, they are amazing.

  34. 34 : Beatrice Says:

    Really recommended this show to everyone, no overacting, no excessive drama….its simple perfect for every episode plus drinking and eating are the main tropic in this drama. People who love senses will find this drama very interesting.

  35. 35 : Koshi Says:

    I love how Prof.MIn put his cap on his head during hiking in this episode 14? New fashion in Korea! Hahaha!

  36. 36 : Beatrice Says:

    So sweet to see Prof. Jin keep following Hana, wherever she goes and his answer definitely said, ” I want to see my girlfriend.”

  37. 37 : Beatrice Says:

    Don’t forget our trio handsome friends now in depress.

  38. 38 : Koshi Says:

    @Beatrice, the couple betting in hiking scenes are the hilarious.
    Can’t believe Director Kim will be the match-maker for this two couple? Hahaha!

  39. 39 : Strawberry Says:

    If you watch episode 14 of this drama, Ki-bum’s advise make me motive again with his wise thinking about friendships over girlfriends. It’s hurt to see him give-up Chae-yeon and move-on but this is life for everyone of us go thru from high-school to married life.
    Only left 2 more episodes of this show, really miss a good drama now.

  40. 40 : Beatrice Says:

    I feel Dong Young shouldn’t tell Cha-yeon about Dong Myung ‘s secret admirer, is a kinda of busy-bodied and moreover, he was a boy. Geez!

  41. 41 : XoXo girl Says:

    How could Prof. Jin hurts Hana feelings again, just b’cos he started to know his brother falls for her? Nonsense!
    Love can’t be force and now, I really don’t like his arrogant characters.

  42. 42 : Silence Says:

    I root to Jini and Jin Woong cuz they ‘re fun and crazy.

  43. 43 : Silence Says:

    Can’t believe he remained his underwear for her? Super cute.

  44. 44 : Leslie Says:

    If I’m Hana, I definitely forget Premium Trash. From what I knew, the beginning Hana know him, already he was arrogant and confident of himself. He doesn’t respect people.

  45. 45 : Really! Says:

    This drama must have been financed by the alcohol companies targeting single and young Koreans. What a joke of story! F for the ending. F for promoting alcoholism. F for sorry ass future for the young generation. Drink away Korean writers. Life must suck for them.

  46. 46 : Nicey Says:

    It says most Koreans are Alcholics. Bad thing also is, almost all Kdramas, characters are fond of drinking whenever they have problems, too bad even the young ones are addict in drinking, not a good example for children. This drama needs parental guidance, if not, do not be surprise if your kids or nephews their hobbies will be drinking.. lol..!

  47. 47 : jamm Says:

    being bad and evil is depend on your self, in my country if you get drunk and sleep on the street, when you wake up , your wallet, watch and your jacket gone. for women, maybe after week, you will get pregnant.

  48. 48 : Raymond Says:

    @silverswan that’s ha sun charm 😂 i fall so hard for that lips act since high kick days

  49. 49 : ali Says:

    HSJ is good at playing role of arrogant character with his sharp charismatic eyes. Drinking solo is a very special drama.

  50. 50 : lclarakl Says:

    Nicey @ 46, I asked a question on the Soompi thread for anyone to list an adult drama where one of the leads or secondary leads do not get drunk. I posted that about 3 or 4 years ago–no one has been able to find a drama yet. It’s truly said that dramas depict getting drama as one of their main plot lines. I especially hate seeing when they depict young women getting falling down drunk in a bar or some type of club scene. What is the message to young women. That is one of the reasons I skipped this drama.

  51. 51 : lclarakl Says:

    Repost–just noticed the errors….darn, auto spell.
