  7. 7 : suzi Says:

  8. 8 : Ivy Says:

    suzi, you can see the synopsis as shown above.

  10. 10 : ziw Says:

    i’m still waiting this drama’s last episode in indonesia.. i can’t wait longer..

  11. 11 : pandabear104 Says:

    can you guys tell me if this series is worth my time to watch it?? I’ve been looking for an amazing drama to watch. just finished to series thank you and loved it. hoping this series will be my next favorite. thanks.

  12. 12 : Ayu Says:

    A friend of mine told me that this drama is one of the best drama besides “I’m Sam”. I’ve watched until eps 3 but I can’t enjoy watching it so I didn’t continue it. I don’t know because of the casts is too many or the storyline is not usual but I still hope that I can enjoy watching it someday. Can anybody ensure me that this drama is one of the worth watched drama?

  13. 13 : Rowena Says:

    Ayu, you really have to continue watching for you to really enjoy it. The first 4 to 5 episodes are very important for you to be able to grasp the storyline. It has an unpredictable plot. The characters are bit weird but you’re going to get used with them as the story progresses. I am in episode 15 already, and I can’t wait to know the ending of this story. It’s not the usual type of drama, it has several twists that will keep you interested to know the truth! It has all the ingredients of a good series. I just hope that it has a satisfying ending. However, even it if doesn’t have a good end, I still recommend for others to see.

  14. 14 : m'sian ahjuma Says:

    I love Bae Doo Na and she is lovely in this series. You’ll enjoy her acting here as she is in her elements. This is a light hearted and romantic comedy and you’ll soon be laughing away your stress and worries. After Coffee Prince, there was no replacement for the high you get and this series was my cure!

  15. 15 : Rowena Says:

    Yes, Bae Doo Na is really good in this series. Everytime she cries, I cry also. This is one of the series that has a not so good start, but would keep you glued as the story progresses. You just have to really watch it continuously and intently up to the end. Park Shi Hoo is quite looking here. He has good chemistry with Doo Na.

  16. 16 : M'sian Ahjumma Says:

    Park Shi Yoo has definately improved in his acting since he first appeared in “Which star are you from”. You’ll emphatize and weep with him throughout his difficult love relationship with Doo Na. Sometimes I just wish for a simple love storyline whereby he will be free to court Doo Na and not encounter so many obstacles. They are both too heartbreaking to watch especially when his mother whose appearance may be the genteel type uses such crude measures to separate them. His fiancee has only one expression throughout that is of exasperation and long suffering. I just wish she will give up and disappear. This drama started out light-hearted but gets bogged down with a mysterious murder and unwanted investigations and for several moments, I had to stop viewing as it gets too intensed and stressful when the lovers had to face so many difficulties in their path. I have yet to finish this drama becoz I think I can anticipate the ending and not liking it one bit!

  17. 17 : Mulan Says:

    it seems a little bit complicated, but this drama really empasized the true meaning of love and friendship. my rating is 6/10. sounds good.

  18. 18 : ooi Says:

    hi all
    I have finished watching the whole series,it is quite interesting and entertaining,the wicked father and daughter ended in jail ,so happy ending for the handsome young prince and bae

  19. 19 : Kimberly Sarreal Says:

    Enjoyed watching this drama, acting was good. Of course, English subtitles stunk, but that aside I would recommend this drama. I especially liked Park Shi Hoo in this, he’s manly but sensitive. Bae Doo Na was adorable, very believeable in the part, you wnted to be her friend. And, of course, Kim Seung Woo is always a pleaser…

  20. 20 : D_nila Says:

    I enjoyed so much this drama, relationship in between, can’t wait to see the last episode, cannot find the second part of session 2.
    ooi…., would you mind where can I buy it ?

  21. 21 : Hollywood Says:

    OK, guys. I will give this drama a try since you guys recommended it highly. Trust your judgment.

  22. 22 : Sal Says:

    I’ve finished this series and it is very good, highly recommended and am glad the ending is good too. Loved the chemistry between Doo Na and Park Shi Hoo. Everyone acted well and ending for each also very good. I rate this series 8/10. The other very nice series is “Bad Couple” very funny and yet sad too with interesting story line.
    Anymore very nice Korean series to recommend anyone??

  23. 23 : Kimberly Sarreal Says:

    Well, Hollywood, what do you think, not bad, huh??? I look for your recommendations, keep them coming…

  24. 24 : raspberry Says:

    i found the d-addicts site, but problem is how to download it,, i tried it before but it takes forever to download one episode… i just need someone would tell me the steps how to download the raw and the subs, how to play it, what i need and what should i download first… can someone tell me step by step??..plzzz and thank you..

  25. 25 : lourdesdavid Says:

    It took me a long time to buy this ,”How to meet a perfect neighbor,first I sacrifice watching it in You-Tube,but I am not satisfied so I look around and finally got it. Though the English is not that good and could hardly sense the meaning I just see the picture and I get used to watching Korean films as if I can get the meaning of the dialog. I like it,comedy drama and the twist and turn(that’s why you have to see the beginning)The love triangle is different and was confuse the girl in the beginning,who was murdered,was I highly she the sister of Park Shii Ho and it seems like the little boy was his nephew.Thanks loured

  31. 31 : rhealulu Says:

    why oh why..has everyone stopped english subbing this drama….it is so funny…but no one seems to want to translate it into english anymore…..mysoju stopped….so did crunchyroll…..help….can someone please put us out of our misery and finish this drama!!!!!

  32. 32 : Afro Goddess Says:

    rhealulu, I totally agree with you. If you ever find a place that finishes the HTMAPN series with English subtitltes, please post it here.

    I really like the series and totally agree with the person who said that its a nice show after watching Coffee Prince. It totally clears one’s K-drama palate. You can’t watch something so undilluted as Coffee Prince, then watch another one like it back to back. For example, you can’t watch Coffee Prince and My Lovely Samsoon back to back.

    If anyone knows where to get Episodes 10 and higher of HTMAPN WITH SUBTITLES, please post!

  33. 33 : crystal Says:

    cn sm1 tell me de ending? coz i scared i cnt find de eps 2 watch since i nid eng subs.. haiis wil doo na be wif si hu? i hope!

  34. 34 : Hollywood Says:

    Hello Kimberly, I finally finish watching this drama. It’s good and not boring. I was hestitant but took your advise, did not regret it. The story unfold very nicely with a little mystery behind it. The title of this drama was too long and not suitable for the storyline. The synopsis was pretty lame and did not introduce this drama properly. That’s why I wasn’t keen at first.
    The 1st episode where the detective blunder, it caught my attention as he was pretty funny. I then took the plunged and enjoyed watching this drama. I think our Malaysian Ahjumma finds it too intense.I feel that it a good story which gradually disclose who the killer was and why.
    The lead actress did a great job with exception that she seem to be doing a lot of talking as compare to the lead actor. She did appeared, I believed in Lover’s in Paris and Love Hymn (did not see this one yet, any good?) and she looks prettier than before. I did not recongnized the lead actor but he is pretty cool in this drama. Park Won Sook, played many roles as a bitchy mum and in this episode, she is very comical and I like her better this way. Overall, all the casts performed very well in each of their respective roles. Lesson to be learned too, regarding the pain and shame one have to face being a kept woman. Especially in the Asian society, I know some people in that kind of position, dumb. I bought the DVD and do not mind watching it again.
    Recommend to watch it, you will definitely enjoy it. Intense and passionate.

  35. 35 : Goong Ju Says:

    To Crystal. Yes, they were a couple in the end. Si Hoo oppa’s mom gave her blessing before she died drinking a poison. It was a quite a sad & touching ending. Highly recommanded. Love Si Hoo oppa

  36. 36 : alelie Says:

    i like the cast and the story!better than the other telenovelas i’ve watched…

  37. 37 : crystal Says:

    haha thanks goong ju. i reali cudnt find whr i cud watch the show. appreciate it :)

  38. 38 : dweji Says:

    This drama is definitely the best comedy-drama I watched — i think it’s tons better than “coffee prince” — no competition! :)

  39. 39 : airliebird58 Says:

    I’ve just watched up too episode 13 of this series (Thanks to B.O.N Fansubs for the English subs!) And I have to say it is one of my favourite K Dramas. All the characters are well drawn and played, and the storyline should appeal to all ages. I can’t wait to see how it all ends!

  40. 40 : nina Says:

    i was just wondering… in the ending which people ended up as a couple? is it Doo Na and Shi Hoo? or is it Doo Na and Seung Woo?

  41. 41 : Lumi Says:

    I was looking for a new drama to watch and was lucky to find this one.at mysoju.com From the first episode I sense it was different from most drams and got a few laughs. I was hooked.

    I like Kim Seung Woo very much since Hotelier. Bae DooNa is also good. Both are movie and tv actors and are always very good. Park Shi Goo growns on you you.

    This is not the usual predictable romantic comedy. It is complex and with many twists. It is definitely worth watching it.

  42. 42 : Daisy Says:

    I am so happy to have found an interesting drama with so much going on and a fine cast, both leading and supporting.

    If you are looking for something interesting and fun, this is one to watch.

  43. 43 : sang hee Says:

    I bought this dvd & didn’t regret it one bit! it’s one of my favorites now – the actors are all great & the storyline is just superb! kim seong woo’s character is one neighbor you would want to be next door with — all the characters are fabulous! i love park shi hoo also as well as the lead actress, her 3x divorced sister is so pretty as well, their mother as well is so great! hats off to the producer/director — i haven’t finished watching & can’t wait to see the rest but hope there’s a sequel to this! congrats to all the cast! you did a great job & the script is just great! thnx for this wonderful dvd! it’s a must-see!

  44. 44 : sang hee Says:

    now that i just finished watching can somebody here shed some light on this please? Park Shi Hoo’s deceased or murdered sister, after he took DNA he told his mother how could it be that she was not his sister & his nephew is actually his brother? The murdered woman was still young & for him to be her son? Also the ending was it the ending while Kim Seong Woo was on the plane heading to America or there’s more to it cause i looked at mysoju & it indicated ‘next episode coming soon’ and that was already on epis. 20? the dvd i got also ended on the plane! pls if anyone here could respond I would appreciate it very much! Overall I give this drama 4 stars & two thumbs up! It’s a different drama & the friendship between the two lead characters is just oustanding!

  45. 45 : mee Says:

    i love this drama………….funny, sad, happy ending…not really happy ending coz Baek Soo Chan still alone hehe but gred A

  46. 46 : lumi Says:

    Sang Hee,

    This drama ends on episode 20. The last scene is when KSW’s character is on a plane to ??.

    A lot of times mysoju leaves the “”next episode coming soon”” sign after the last episode.

    This is a different drama with a satisfying ending. The first episodes are necessary eventhough people may not find them interesting. As it progresses, it becomes better. I liked this drama so much that I bought it and highly recommend it. This is not Coffee Prince, MNIKSS, nor trendy, but very entertaining.

  47. 47 : KoreanBuff Says:

    I regretted I did’nt watched it ealier when I bought it tll I realised Park Shi Hoo was in it. This is the 1st time I came across the leading actress Bae Doo Na. Her selfless love is very touching. Bae Doo Na has good chemistry between Kim Seung Woo and Park Shi Hoo.
    This is a show worth watching !!

  48. 48 : KoreanBuff Says:

    Oh I forgot to add one thing – Park Shi Hoo looks very handsome in this show regardless of wearing casual clothes or smart office wear. He looked so handsome especially one particular side view of him after staying overnight in the office. He is one of my favorite actors.

  49. 49 : DA Says:

    Good show!!! Very nice storyline. The love story between the 3 is getting more and more excited. The question is, who is the lead actor? Till now i still cant figure out as both has same tv time!! haha,, Good show! A MUST WATCH!!

  63. 63 : eka christy Says:

    I think the drama is very interesting, because park shi hoo is my favorit actor

  64. 64 : lisa Says:

    During this holiday season, I am rewatching HTMAPN. This is my nth time watching the drama to see PSH’s excellent performance in the drama. I fast forward those many scenes without PSH.
    What I especially noted in this watching is that PSH looked so young, handsome and noble. He really shines. No wonder, he won the heart of his secretary. I would fall at his feet if I were in her place….especially love the boss / secretary scenes… good chemistry.

  65. 65 : lisa Says:


    Extracts from review of HTMPN in link above:

    “So as all of you probably figured, I’m a huge Park Shi Hoo fan, and for valid reasons, as I’ve rarely seen a better actor with a more scene-stealing, charming on-screen persona than the one he exudes. And unlike other actors who have maybe one compelling role and then a bunch of mediocre, dry pieces (Joe Cheng, along with pretty much all other kdrama male leads), PSH is incredibly consistent. That’s why despite two attempts to sidekick him into a second-lead role, his charisma wins over fans and he edges right up over the initial male lead.

    How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor is the first time (that I know of) where the original lead was ousted by the second lead, aka Kim Seung-Woo by PSH. Very deservingly too. He was the only reason I wallowed through the horrendously boring first quarter and stuck with the rest of this otherwise terribly schizo and mediocre story.

    Yoo Joon-Suk (Park Shi Hoo)

    I’ve read reviews where people say they loved him in PP but hate him in this. Maybe my love for PSH is particularly immense, but I thought Joon-Suk was pretty darn cute and realistic. He doesn’t have the quirky confidence or humor of later PSH characters like Gu Yong-Shik and Seo Byun, but he’s still portrayed charmingly and demonstrates a nice depth and complexity, far more than the main girl. PSH seems to have been thrust into a bajillion troubled-family-background types of roles, but he does them so well, as seen here.

    What I love about Joon-Suk is that he is believable, especially with his faults. Most dramas paint the prince as one who falls unconditionally in love with the girl and becomes blind to all of her shortcomings. However, we know that people, and especially men, in real life are not like that. No matter how much you love someone, you will feel embarrassed if she/he makes a fool of herself and you in front of your old flame by acting like an uneducated oaf. I like that they show Joon-Suk feeling exactly these sentiments, and even better, by showing him honestly trying to overcome his “narrow-mindedness.” Which I personally thought was cute and very representative of the real world. He was a little uptight and overbearing at first, but that’s how guys that really love you behave, especially in the early stages of love before two people build up trust and rapport.
    However, I do see how people may have been angered by him in the last two episodes. Even my PSH love couldn’t quite overcome his cowardly attitude, although he does do it for understandable reasons.

    Honestly, if PSH hadn’t been the actor for this I don’t know if I would have liked Joon-Suk as much as I do.
