    Love to see Park Hae Jin in the drama again. It’s a good drama.

  14. 14 : Jagiy Says:

    Love to see Park Hae Jin again in the drama. It’s a good drama.

  15. 15 : mangaman Says:

    Been watching the first few episodes, and something strikes me right away. This KDrama has the look and feel of a Japanese manga comic.

    From the hair styles on the “drop-dead” gorgeous actresses, to the stoic looks of the male characters, the manga influence is so obvious. They even have a Japanese grandfather figure with samurai sword, as well as the car salesmen who look like they came right out of a manga story.

    I suppose this drama was either tailored for the Japan market, or they hope to make a bundle when thay finally sell the broadcast rights to the Japan market. Glad to see it’s one show that doesn’t take itself so serious. Curious to see if the director or writers are into manga.

  16. 16 : mingbaihua Says:

    if the main actress who eventually ends up with ha ryu is not kim jaehee…i will be more than just disappointed with this drama…i dont really like the idea of ha ryu and min daehee considering the fact that kim jaehee is too pretty and cool a character to be wasted as a second actress.
    moral of the story…the drama will suck if kim jaehee and ha ryu dont end up together…and its not just my opinion..all my friends and literally everyone i know think alike.

  17. 17 : eugene Says:

    Yes the drama would be suck if HR and JH not end up together. have you watched ep 14 the ending scene. JH comes and hugs HR and he hugs her back and Dae Hee witness that scene. I love the ending of ep 14.

  18. 18 : lovelyMonster Says:

    I will really really disappoint if HR and JH not end up together.
    At the beginning I watch this drama because of Park Hae Jin.
    But now, I watch this drama because I love HR and JH so much.
    It’s very great if HR ♡ JH have happy ending. Otherwise, I feel that I waste my time to this drama

  19. 19 : efaa Says:

    I want Jaehee end up with Ha Ryu….pleaseeeeee..let it become true.. -_-
    Yes!it will feel that we are wasting our time watching this drama if Ha Ryu not end up with Jaehee..I hope director was good in making a decision..they look good together..

  20. 20 : eugene Says:

    Episode 16. Almost the end of the drama but the relationship between HR and JH still not goes far as i wished even DH and HR already break up. Hopefully, the director will make more than 20 episodes to let HR and JH have time with each other. If JH and HR not be together at the end, this drama is absolutely wasting everyone’s time.

  21. 21 : Me and I Says:

    im also hope ryu and jae hee e together at the end.still my one of my favorite drama

  22. 22 : diehard fan Says:

    Oh yes, I luv the ending of epi 14 and the part where HR went to looked for JH in the country and enjoying the bbq.So sad when Hr told JH that he preferred their relation like they have initially.Would hate the show if both of them din end up together lor. Anyone noe what the ending would be like?

  23. 23 : FLIP. Says:

    eh ? i want Da Hae and Ha Ryu to be togother .

  24. 24 : Kitabui Says:

    So sad 🙁
    Maybe HR and DH will end up together.
    I love HR&JH more.

  25. 25 : funnyghost Says:

    Me too :((
    what reason do I continue… ‘Cause the love sence of Ryu and Dae Hee? No, I isn’t intersted in it initially.
    Thought I like PHJ acting, but I don’t see the chemistry of Ryu and Dae Hee, I just see the Ryu’s eyes always direct toward Jae Hee.

  26. 26 : hong Says:

    The songs sound good though. Any info on the OST?

  49. 49 : ptsh836 Says:

    @Furious Jane (#37): did we get this disc fr the same dealer?? the subtitles did me in; had me brains in a jumble trying to decipher what nice elephant (how siang), the room tt grows (hui chang), calculate (suan leh) all literal & direct translations fr the chinese subs presumably done by experts in china…i was so tortured mentally i wanted to throw the whole disc into the rubbish bin…but park hae jin (ha ryu) saved me with that handsome face of his n his superb acting…never really got to finish this drama….a pity really otherwise the story seems fresh n interesting.

  50. 50 : Amanda Says:

    I like HOT BLOOD. I like ha ryu and jae hee so much.

  51. 51 : casper Says:

    i like dahae with ryu….

  53. 53 : sttears Says:

    I love it, and i love the Haryu and Dahae pairing despite what anyone says! It was already predictable that Jaehee would end up alone because she wad in for the competition of car selling against seungjo
