  25. 25 : 0708julia_jj Says:

    Because it’s KBS drama special, usually KBS world will upload it in youtube like adolance medley & sohee’s drama but it will takes up 3 week later after airing

  26. 26 : kalak Says:

    The first two episodes’ ratings were a disaster – dead last at 3%!
    What’s happened? People not interested in BoA any more?

  27. 27 : Lisa Says:

    I have found a new site where you can watch all new episode of this drama http://www.hddrama.blogspot.com

  28. 28 : taraJJ Says:

    thank you for the link 🙂

    not everyone who want watch this drama bcoz of Boa.. me for example interesting to watch this boz of Choi Daniel and Kim Ji Won..
    about the ranting, I think bcoz Hope for Dating airing in the same time slot with Master’s Sun (which has more solid storyline and castings) and Two Week (starring by Lee Jun Ki,,we all know that LJK has a lot loyal fans)

  29. 29 : Jill Says:

    I love Daniel Choi and would definitely love to see this drama!

    But as for the ratings i think its because of Master’s Sun and Two Weeks which is both great incredible dramas too! ^^

  30. 30 : sapphirewon Says:

    I love this drama, really really love.. i watch it because of choi daniel,, and he’s really good actor.. i love him, i love cha ki dae ^^

  31. 31 : emmanuel Says:

    I didn’t understand the story when I watched .just forget about the cast what did u think about this drama?

  32. 32 : joan Says:

    nothings wrong with the cast..all i want to know is that is this really an interesting drama?why got low ratings?

  33. 33 : nio Says:

    link please, i can’t found this link for streaming 🙁

  34. 34 : doni Says:

    Here is a link 😀 for this drama

  35. 35 : Misa Says:

    I watched the first two episodes, and it was alright… Hope this drama gets more interesting later!

  36. 36 : mic Says:

    BoA’s Acting is not good. Perhaps this is why this drama have low ratings

  37. 37 : maknaee Says:

    this drama has a good story. i think i got some lesson from watching this drama kkk

    her acting isn’t that bad. the most reasons was cause their air time same with Master’s Sun and Two Weeks. maybe yeah..

    This is my second (or maybe third?) time watching Siwan’s acting. Woaah he does a great job~ he has improving since i watch him on The Moon That Embracing the Sun. Looking forward to his drama next time~

  38. 38 : safi Says:

    plzzzz tell me where can i download or see the videos?

  39. 39 : Zzzzz Says:

    I think this drama make a 1 special episode because the ending is very confused for me hehehe 😴😅

  40. 40 : dinaz Says:

    I was only interested in this drama because of Daniel..it was nice looking at his handsome face.. 🙂 love his acting as always..about the drama well its not as nice as it was publicised..it was going on smooth,sweet and cute until the umbrella scene..i thought that scene was so beautiful but it was totally spoilt by jin guk’s entry..but atlast it was that yeon ae and ki dae were meant to be with each other..so ok!but i wish the drama had ended in the umbrella scene with ki dae and yeon ae meeting each other for the first time..

  41. 41 : diana Says:

    @emmanuel..me to i dont really care about the cast, BUT THIS DRAMA is INTERESTING ^^ so sweet I like it..

  42. 42 : myeon Says:

    I love this drama. But i hate the ending 🙁 need moreeeeee..

  43. 43 : elie Says:

    They should have continued this drama or made it a movie at least. I liked it.

  44. 44 : Rena Says:

    Love this drama!!!! but Wish they had more episodes and more moments together….I wish someone will make the continuation of this drama but the same characters/actors actress…

  45. 45 : annalyn Says:

    its so boring to watching this..its to short for watching 2 episode!

  46. 46 : annalyn Says:

    Its to short for watching 2 episode!

  47. 47 : OK OK OK Says:

    nice movie – i enjoy it very much – ALL main casts put up a good show.

    Siwan ssi, you look so “cute” here – ha ha – I never guess its you if I did not read the actor’s name (I prefer your looks in Misaeng) 😛
    Like Daniel Choi too – suave.

    Please have Episodes 3

  48. 48 : tigerb Says:

    ‘waiting for love’ at you tube: the four people had the wrong reasons getting entangled in their relationships. would have been two disasters had they not broken up, and two people met as they seem meant for each other.

  49. 49 : tigerb Says:

    some people want more episodes, some people think the drama is boring and cut short watching. really it all depends if you feel romantic watching the drama or not!!!

    one thing i can say is that actors should not use eyeglass frames if there are no lenses in them as they look stupid.

    a note to producers and directors: stop using eyeglass frames if you want your actors to look pensive or thinking deeply. their talent to act should do that without ‘no lens eyeglass frames’!!!
