  5. 5 : yoori Says:

    hwang jun eum is good in acting…so pretty….

  6. 6 : kim bong Says:

    i already like this drama…all lead are good.

  7. 7 : Dino Says:

    Like the drama’s simple to goodness story. Has good vibes.

  8. 8 : Dino Says:

    What is Hyun Joo going to do now? She’s vowed to stay single. But yet lined up, right at the doorstep to her heart, are two fine eligible young men who loves her. Will she scrape her promise to herself and open her heart to one of them? Or go with the flow of her past lives’ pre-ordained destiny, whatever path it might end up to be? Love is pain. Dilemma, dilemma !! I sure do not envy her situation. Woah… let’s meditate….!!

  9. 9 : jay je Says:

    Hwang Jung Eum woowww…
    i always like her drama. This drama too. Simple and almost every end two episode made me laugh. hopelly happy ending.

  10. 10 : Dino Says:

    I have a feeling that in the end she might not end up with any one of the guys. She might opt to go on a solo journey. Staying single is a bad habit. Hard to break. Its a world of its own.

  11. 11 : lili Says:

    im a big fan of Hwang jung! watched most of her drama and never disappointed me ,

  12. 12 : USA Says:

    This is the most ridiculous unrealistic b-s drama I’ve ever watched — and won’t be watching it. Don’t know what the hell the writer is thinking. The lead woman character is in her 30s, and have guys make asses out of themselves, a wealthy handsome on at that. How these boys are groveling over one stupid brainless idiot of woman is just an insult to our intelligence. Yes woman power is a good thing, but don’t create out of your rectum and call it entertainment. This show is stupid, insulting, unrealistic and most of all not comical. In the beginning it was cute and comical, but the way the story is dragging out with 2 imbecile of men over one brainless chick is not even for cartoon show. Ridiculous. DONE!

  13. 13 : happyghost Says:

    @USA #12

    How sad !!

    Your choice. Dont watch !!

    This drama is a rom-com anyway. And maybe its idea is to exercise and re-awaken the funny bones in your body as well as your sense of humour a little ?? No? No like this ??

  14. 14 : two angel Says:

    @ Dino

    I feel the same way. She doesn’t want to hurt one of them so she choose to be single. hopefully in the end he will choose Hyun min

  15. 15 : Dinopie Says:

    @ two angel #14

    Yeah, its a tough situation she’s in. Mainly cos she’s got a choice. A choice of staying single. Sometimes in life, its not too good to have too many choices. It’ll leave us sitting on the fence or making us more careless with our life.

    If she got no choice or a way out, her mind might automatically be in “action” mode. Decide on A or B.

    At this stage, I cant decide which guy would suit her… oh dear, why am I the one choosing now. I am not being wooed ! I am only a viewer of the drama. Help ! I dont need this ? Gotta meditate…. Peace !

  16. 16 : Dinopie Says:

    The situation has gotten complicated now. Seo HyunJoo’s parents are taking sides !! Each parent backing their favored potential son-in-law. Is there going to be war at the home front !! Oh gosh !!

  17. 17 : Dinopie Says:

    Park DoKyum cried…. !! (Oh poor guy). He thought he has lost Seo HyunJoo. He looked so miserable. Poor guy. ( My heart skipped a beat when I saw him cry).

    Park DoKyum stay strong ! Its still early days. Nothing is set yet. Nothing is over, until its over !! Fighting !!

    Seo HJ has not made any firm indication yet where her heart really belongs. And of course, poor Park DK does not know about this. He jumped to the wrong conclusion that he’s already lost.

  18. 18 : Dinopie Says:

    The story is going velly velly slow…. snails even move faster. Oh story, please, hurry up a little bit, eh ? My coffee is getting cold and my bottle of chocs is running low…. plus *** (censored)
    ****** (censored)…

    Oh, slow burn….

  19. 19 : Dinopie Says:

    Oh gosh…. finally got to watch what happens next…

    (My coffee is topped up. Got meself a fresh bottle of chocs…. I ‘m all set….. ☺ )

    Ayuhhh…. waited whole week… only to end up wanting to squeeze some characters’ neck !! (Chocs didn’t help to keep my deteriorating mood in check).

    Frustrating to note that some people can be so obsessed with their previous lives, not one but three past lives !! Hwang JiWoo is this character. He’s not living in this moment. He’s not living in reality. He manipulates, plans and plots as if he’s running a corporate entity, to re-direct his present life and invariably Seo HY’s, wanting to return to their historical life. Its not going to work,
    Mr Hwang. Nobody can change what’s already writtened in the Book of Life, past or present.

    Same goes for the devious, conniving and vile Kim SunHee. Dont you think these two (Hwang JW and Kim SH) deserve one another ? Living in their own time warp?

    And poor Seo HJ and Park DK are caught in the middle of all the machinations that are going on ? Its just as well Seo HJ would not have a part in it and broke off with Hwang JW. I am glad for her. And I am glad too that Park DK is there to watch over her.

  20. 20 : Dino Says:

    Reached this episode where I really have had a shock !!

    Found out that, Kim SunHee the current troublesome torn between the lovebirds SHJ and HJW, was also a character in our lovebirds’ past lives !! There she was terribly jealous of the couple. So much so that like her present self, she was full of devilish schemes to break them up. Oh me gosh !! Unbelievable !! She was soooo mean then. And she is still the same, mean and evil in her present life. Is it that some souls not change, during the process of reincarnation? Gosh !!

    However, for all Kim SH’s schemings and manipulations, thank goodness, she did not succeed. Hwang JW managed to fight her off.

    But she wont accept defeat, or acknowledge that what she’s doing is wrong. She vowed to continue to break up the couple. Gosh !

    NOTE : Today news media reported that shooting of this drama has been temporary suspended due to a staff member having come down with covid-19. The pandemic is disrupting life worldwide alright. Postal services in and out of where I live has even been suspended until further notice due to the pandemic.

    Anyway hope the pandemic does not disrupt the screening of the rest of the dramas over here. We are a few episodes behind Seoul in the screening. So this should allow a few more screenings to come for us? 😊

  21. 21 : Dino Says:

    As reported, there’s no screening of this drama for now. N

    Nothing like going thro a deadly pandemic and k-drama blues at the same time. I’m sure there must be hundreds of thousands of sorryful victims like me globally. K-drama is BIG. Year 2020 will surely stay in my mind….

    Anyway. its Ok. Peoples’ safety from covid-19 is more important.

    One bright spark came just now…. Whilst visiting a celebrity’s social media site, I got to listen a beautiful song there. First time I heard the song! Blew my blues away … I listened a few times over…

    Life works in mysterious ways !!

  22. 22 : Dinopie Says:

    For two days in a row, I was anxiously waiting for the screening of this drama to resume, after a short “covid’ break.

    Unfortunately, some other drama has been slotted in its place instead. Looks like for some reasons we viewers would not know, the station has decided to change the drama for screening.

    Bye to our drama heroine Seo GH and our two heroes, Hwang JW and Park DK. Its been nice meeting you and getting acquainted with you.

    As for our drama character, the evil jealous loser, Kim HS (imagine staying jealous for 3 lives?!), may this life be your last on earth. You are better off in hell. Your friends are there. So be good!

    Well, so far so good for this drama. Thank you KBS2 for treating us to this drama. Enjoyed watching it.

    SIDE NOTE : A friendly safety message to viewers who have been contacted recently by malicious and vicious trolls :

    Refrain from interacting with them, or participate in whatever they would like to say or do. They are slander mongers!! Evil. You might be considered a GUILTY PARTY BY ASSOCIATION – should there be any consequence of legal or law enforcement activities later on.

    Beware. Of note, there is one very vicious troll who goes around creating all kinds of trouble, from slanderous gossips, toxic rumours, to porn materials, etc. There is another evil and serious criminal activity online has the attention of Int. Police and a few Govt Agencies. So be aware of “guilty by association” status.

    This site is not spared either. Its posted some porn materials to this site.

    This troll moves around online by using countless online names. Too many to name. He poses himself as a female too. He’s all over the internet.

    Take Care !!

  23. 23 : Dinopie Says:

    In case you are wondering who am I… here is some info as an intro – google MBTI Personality Type – INFJ (Advocate). Accuracy : 97 %. This is all I can give. Then decide for yourselves “who I am”.

    Have a good day !! ✌

  24. 24 : Dinopie Says:

    I am grinning from ear to ear now. Happy!! Just saw KBS’s announcement on tv that the screening of the drama will resume tonight!!

    I had actually resigned myself to accept the pre-mature ending of the drama (ref msg #22 above). Had not expected this unexpected bonus!! What a pleasant surprise! The screening will resume! Tonight! Happy Days are back! Hehe!! ☺

  25. 25 : Dinopie Says:

    The story ended in a positive note … usual fairytale ending that would pleased most viewers.

    Even the jealous scheming Kim HS has realised her wrongdoings and repented.

    Except that Seo HJ and Hwang JW’s marriage has an unusual twist. They decided not to get married in the traditional way. Instead their marriage is living together as a couple, with each person still retaining their personal freedom as an individual. (Hope I have interpreted this “marriage” arrangement correctly).

    The end.

  26. 26 : Dinopie Says:

    Special Chingu, here’s a piece of news tidbit for you. If you wanna cheer yourself up, go watch your latest youtube video. Your No.1 fan was there 1 day ago. She left a msg plus a little bit more, unwittingly.

  27. 27 : Hanako Says:

    Overall it is not bad story but kind of weird showing past lives and same person. Kind of confusing , and funny though a ridiculous ending. Meaning like no string attach. I do not think the rating will be good though the maib actor and actress were good in this drama

  28. 28 : Dinopie Says:

    #27 Hanako

    The subject of “marriage” is, I believe a very hard topic to discuss. Marriage is a universal practice. Its a practice that belongs to every culture and every country in the world. Depending on how its interpreted or drawn out, basically, its a union of a couple wanting to set up home together and be together as one for the rest of their life. And of course, additionally, we now have our modern era’s marriage practice as depicted in above drama.

    My opinion is, whatever marriage arrangement a couple chooses to adopt to signify their union, we will accept and respect their choice and be happy for them. Anything else that comes with it, its none of our business.

    One thing I would like to add…. we must never ever believe or take that a marriage is a slave contract. No. No, never shall it be. Marriage is, nothing but a happy and satisfied union between a couple to live as one, through thick and thin, through coffee, chocolates, and k-dramas, k-pop, gukbap, jokkbal, etc. Hehe!!
