  1. 1 : Cur_Lee Says:

    first i thought it’ll be the sequel of the first season,
    maybe it’s just going to be like endless love drama (four seasons with different story)

  2. 2 : taraLuvJJ Says:

    i love i need romance season 1 so much.. i really don’t care if they have different casts and characters as long as the storyline of this season 2 is interesting, funny and good as season one.. but i hope a better ending not like the season one was..

  3. 3 : tey Says:

    wow finally Lee Jin wook coming up!!! its long waiting after City of Glass

    hope you doing well here!!!

  4. 4 : Micc Says:

    Same here, loved the first season, curious to find out how this one does.

  5. 5 : Mystisith Says:

    @taraLuvJJ: Exactly what i feel and hope. What i expect is: The same “tone” and modern touch.

  6. 6 : Nancy Says:

    The spelling on the sinopsys has the girl called a “he” so it looked like it was about three men instead of a woman and two men.

    (@Nancy from admin: Thanks for inform us. We just updated the synopsis. Please take a look.)

  7. 7 : Charlie Says:

    I loved last I Need Romance. I liked the leading lady, she was so cute, and the chemistry between her and the second leading man, but was not into the leading man at all And also toward the end, the uncharacteristic changes of the romance ruined the ending.
    I hope this one will be equally as sexy and exciting as the previous one.

  8. 8 : julie Says:

    If the story same with season 1, I hope she will be ending with the second leading man

  9. 9 : stellatan Says:

    haha… Two best friends (in real life) fight for a girl… That is interesting.

  10. 10 : Momo Says:

    I love the first season and hope this one will be great as well.

  14. 14 : Rania Marlina Says:

    If the story same with season 1, I hope she will be ending with the second leading man

  15. 15 : sylvia Says:

    It’s nice to see Jung Yu Mi once again, I’ve like her since Que Sera Sera. I am also happy to see Lee Jin Wook in another drama but I am not fond of the other actor, I hope he’ll just be a supporting cast here.

  16. 16 : Muyamoh Says:

    I’m watching this drama. It’s not as good as the first season but it’s not bad. I just hate YM. She is totally stupid and her personality is hateful.

  30. 30 : drina Says:

    i love this drama to pieces!
    i adore the characters.. They are all seem so real and their lovestory are so touching and heartwarming.
    YeolMae’s bravery to love, to be hurt, to end and to start her new love with Shin Ji Hoon is worthwatching..l

    It’s WONDERFUL!!!. I couldn’t get interested in the first “I Need Romance”, but this
    one is great. Love the characters, the story, the actors, the eye candy, the whole thing.

  35. 35 : VictoriaCze Says:

    I want Yeol Mae to stick with Syeok Hyun but where the story’s leading to now says otherwise. )))))))):

  36. 36 : drina Says:

    i just watch until eps.10…
    cant wait to watch the rest;)

    do you guys know what’s the name of seokhyun’s illness?

  37. 37 : drina Says:

    btw, i really can’t hate Yeol Mae…
    I looooveee her!
    she’s a smart girl, success in her career..
    eventhough sometimes she could be really annoying, self-absorbed, selfish, childish, stubborn, ill-tempered, but she is also loyal, warm, passionate, loving, caring, ambitious, funny, quirky, adorable, romantic, simple, sexy, sweet, cheerful, independent..
    a very lovable character!

  38. 38 : Micc Says:

    Didn’t know this would turn out to be a great drama. 16 episodes just flew by, no dragging, no unnecessary drama, just a nice and clean portrayal of lovers in love.

  39. 39 : angel Says:

    i really love this drama…awesome!!!! it”s so sad that it has to end……
    I can’t say which is better,,,if it is the first season or this one because they are both great… i’m looking forward for INR season 3…

  40. 40 : Putri Says:

    I wanted ji hoon and yoel mae to be together, but they weren’t 🙁
    however, I love this drama so so so so much! better than the first season I think, and I really love yeol mae’s character, she was annoying sometimes, though hehe, but, I really love her, she’s adorable 🙂 I just didn’t like the fact that she was with soek hyun, I think she should be with ji hoon instead of him or just not started it if in the end, she wasn’t with ji hoon. ugh I feel like I overreact about the story lol

  41. 41 : Putri Says:

    and I really like this–> “the opposite of I love you is not hate or dislike but I loved you” I dont know why, but, it seems so true keke~
    one of sentences that I like in this drama

  42. 42 : drina Says:

    putri: itu pernah gw bikin jd status fb, put.. wkwkwk;)

  43. 43 : Hanako Says:

    It is an awkward movie to me and never like the series being crazily in love with a man over the years, and never gave up but suddenly met another man and also suddenly crazily in love with him knowing him for a short time. I never like the last year’s I need romance too, not a logic story so to me it is an awful series among many series I watched. Women are not that desperate as this movie showed..what the heck. How can someone changed overnight just like that?? it will take time for people to changed if rejected by

  44. 44 : Doris Says:

    lovely… a must watch. I think this is better than season 1

  45. 45 : ina Says:

    hmmm.. Sorry 2 say this. Good acting but about the story its not too good.. For me the point of This drma jst bout how to good acting n kissing, not the story..

  46. 46 : WitLily Says:

    very good and simple story (this maybe like “sex and the city” korean version). very entertaining (with many kiss scene 🙂 )

    i love this movie! jang!!
    ENTERTAINING, simple, not so serious but also meaning full,
    i love all of the character..

    thank u for made this 🙂

  49. 49 : dramamama Says:

    Enjoyed this drama! Initially, i hesitated watching it thinking it wld be just another typical 3-some love story but i’m glad tt i didn’t miss it. The plot is simple, short & entertaining. Jung Yu Mi potrayed the character JooYeolMae really well. She’s very cute! I love seeing YeolMae with the sweet & gentle ShinJiHoon being together. The two actress & actor have good chemistry. Well, those r just my own opinion. I think this drama is worth watching…

  50. 50 : girlwholoveskoreandrama Says:

    Really enjoyed this drama..worth to watch.. Theres always a reasons when couple fighting. This is reflection of how couples nowadays.. But if i were her,I will choose ji hoon because he’s kind hearted plus she loves him too..

  51. 51 : annie Says:

    I sooo love this drama. Just the right romance, twist, drama, everything. The cast was good as well so believable. I’ll watch it again and again…

  52. 52 : Aisha Says:

    I want english subtitles for this draaamaaaa :(((

  53. 53 : Loraine Says:

    i love this drama.. and for me its really a nice story. Although we can’t accept the fact that this could also be happening in real life but based on my experienced, it really does exist… a girl who is so in loved and so passionately loyal to the guy, but suddenly can give up because she is only human who could be tired of the same scenarios, that the guy doesn’t say anything if he really loves the girl… 🙂 well, i can’t even remember how many hankie i have used while watching this season. LOL

  54. 54 : ance Says:


    not sure if this is a spoiler…but since i’m saying that it will be a a happy ending, i guess it is… 😉

    i love this drama…i like that even though it’s season 2, and they lessen the spicy bed scenes (that’s in season 1) i love the characters here and the story more…i love lee jin wook here coz among the 3 dramas i’ve watch of him, he finally got the girl!!! i think this season is more close to reality or like what’s really happening in real life. loved those 3 girls and their partners…this is the first time i’ve watched a drama that i don’t mind who will the lead girl end up with but of course i can’t deny that i love happy endings!

    congratulations to the cast and crew![/spoiler]

  55. 55 : tomokoeiki Says:

    I just finished watching ‘I need romance’ (season 1) and cont. watching this season 2 drama. I’m a bit disappointed to find that season 2 (storyline) is not entertaining, not as good as season 1 (actor/actress/storyline are awesome+great!).

  56. 56 : shinta Says:

    Ji hoon, sarangehyoooooo.. *kiss kiSs kiss

  57. 57 : julie Says:

    i really enjoy this drama. it’s about friendship & romance. Worth watching!

  58. 58 : awesome micaela Says:

    This drama is amazing. More people should watch it. It actually reflects reality and shows that although the 3 girls have grown up, they’re still best friends and act like little girls around each other. LOVE THIS DRAMA! The only thing is (A BIT OF A SPOILER HERE) Jae Kyung should tell the girls and Seok Hyun the truth about her marriage. It ended without her clearing it up with the rest and they continued to think she’s an adulterer until the end. I LOVE THIS DRAMA!

  59. 59 : usa-mary Says:

    This drama so far is really good. Yay! I don’t mind a bit of ‘spoiler’ info at all! It makes it more interesting to me. I’m half-way through and looking forward to see how the end will unfold. Wow! Even though I like both men Yoel Mae has chosen, I’m looking foward to who the screenwriter will have her choose!

  60. 60 : usa-mary Says:

    Awwww..oppa! Now I know why you wanted to protect Yoel Mae and why you have the views toward marriage to the extent that you do. Though on one hand I can empathize and understand, yet it still doesn’t justify the clamming up (which I hate with a passion) at crucial times when your lover needs validation.

    Did someone mention hanky? I had better brace myself and be prepared for the last few episodes that I have to watch. The next episode is really going to be a tear-jerker! ~sigh~

  61. 61 : usa-mary Says:

    Well, the last few episodes became an emotionally chaotic mess that somehow balanced out. Only an author can pull such magic acts. All I can say is that if someone had just drove off and left me to walk home on a dark, dreary, deserted road; taking me a week to get home, no phone calls to see if I’m alright…not even following me to make sure I was safe. By the time I reached home, he not only had better sold his side of the home, but had better moved clear across the globe! YAY!

  62. 62 : usa-mary Says:

    P.S. There were many broken relationship rules between Seok Hyun and Yeol Mae in this drama. Like effort, consideration, respect, and patience. Seok Hyun-shi, fine as he want to be and sexy to the hilt had a terrible mean streak at times (partly due to fear), along with a coldness that would make Antartica shiver and Alaska plead for mercy! When he loved Yeol Mae he could surpass the heat of the Equator and make her purr like a pleasured feline. Yet, when he clammed up and didn’t communicate…it was time for Yeol Mae to chill…of which didn’t happen until his hotness, Ji Hoon, entered her life and patiently taught her these attributes in their relationship.

    Last, but not least…if this was reality, I would have a serious tete a tete with Yeol Mae. There’s a huge difference between having an author take a pen and change a person’s outlook and outcome with a few strokes on paper; compared to reality where some people don’t change with in 10 years time none-the-less 1 year. Oh well…such is a screenwriter’s choice.

  63. 63 : zeez22 Says:

    I love this show.. So sweet… finished it within 24 hours!
