  27. 27 : prakash septimus titus Says:

    didnt expect much in the beginning but right now i feel that its going pretty good and ost at end of episode 3 rocks!

  28. 28 : swift Says:

    so far, have only seen one episode only (ep4)
    drama have potential to be interesting with the scandal plots
    yet, the 1st male lead character is too lame, hope the writer can develop his character to be more interesting
    the lead lady quite okay

  29. 29 : maddy Says:

    This is a good drama, but mixes silly romantic, with deeper thoughts about abuse and exploitation of women, so I get mixed signals. Neither fish nor fowl. Also a lot of physical violence so far, I did not expect, and it makes me uncomfortable.

  30. 30 : ChulMin IsHot Says:

    oh man i have already fallen in love w Oh Ji Young …. :”>

  31. 31 : radhia Says:

    not intresting

  32. 32 : ogrenji Says:

    i’ve watched until ep 4 because i thought it would get better,and it’s still not making me excited 🙁

  33. 33 : all-korean-actress-picture.com Says:

    very interesting drama.

  34. 34 : Birddybuddy Says:

    This is my second drama in my list after The man who came from the star 😃👍 this drama is getting more interesting in each ep 😉 can’t wait to c OJY becoming Miss Korea 😝

  35. 35 : Jyenie Says:

    OJY’s bosom has saved the day :). She finally agrees to cooperate with KHJ for Miss Korea.

  36. 36 : myeon Says:

    I wonder why this thread so quiet? This drama really interesting !

  37. 37 : Ana Says:

    I really like this drama, it’s really great so far

  38. 38 : Debbie Says:

    I wonder why the ratings is low.

  39. 39 : Debbie Says:

    I wonder why the ratings is low.
    This is a very interesting drama.

  40. 40 : khalish Says:

    because its air at the same time with “You Who Came From The Star” on SBS and that’s amazing drama. n this week there is “Inspiring Generation”, its difficult to get high rating…

  41. 41 : momo Says:

    its low rating coz any 2 good dramas on kbs n sbs…

  42. 42 : Mel xu Says:

    Interesting drama, it’s nice to have something diffrent story line

  43. 43 : deeyan Says:

    I don’t care bout the rating,,,
    I just care lee sun gyun as kim hyung joon OPPA
    coz he can cure my fever missing him ^_^
    can’t wait for the next episode
    and lovez the ost

  44. 44 : chai tan ya Says:

    i stuck to this drama bcoz of music ….its so soothing……:)

  45. 45 : Micc Says:

    Feel sad about the ratings. The whole cast really delivers a stellar performance! The storyline is not too shabby either.

  46. 46 : Adhe Talla Says:

    Lee sun gyun, he’s the best.

  47. 47 : Ven Says:

    I love this drama. I am always checking for the next episode with English subtitle to be loaded. It is really interesting!

  48. 48 : mona Says:

    this drama soon will end 😀 can’t wait for the dvd

  49. 49 : Micc Says:

    This drama really is in a bad time slot, without big idols like the other two dramas showing at the same time, no wonder the rating is so low. But the two main leads have such good chemistry, their interaction is so natural. Lee Sun Gyun has always proven himself to be a great actor, Lee Yeon Hee can be hit and miss sometimes but she is terrific here.

  50. 50 : Ana Says:

    I will miss Miss Korea, such a great drama, really refreshing and beautiful!!!

  51. 51 : mona Says:

    i heard the news about Jung So Min (Playful Kiss, Bad Guy, Can We Get Married, etc) being a cameo in the last episode, can’t wait to watch !!!!

  52. 52 : rikai Says:


  53. 53 : cuity17 Says:

    How’s the ending??? It worth watching??…

  54. 54 : kingtez64 Says:

    So happy too see some of the character in pasta drama..seems like their reunion w/o gong hyo jin..

  55. 55 : lia Says:

    I’m currently watching this drama and i’m now on ep 15 and yesss i would say this drama is worth watching! I love the couple in this drama!

  56. 56 : do do e Says:

    The Soudtracks are good. Like it..

  57. 57 : ShashaAmani Says:

    I love the couple. It is worth to watch. I like the sweetness in the flow of their relationship. The drama shows something different than the usual nowadays korean drama. It is set in 1990s. That makes me more engrossed to it. I got to know how the korean lives back days. 5 star, no, 6 star for the drama 😉

  58. 58 : Dev78 Says:

    Great drama , I don’t care about the ratings,

  59. 59 : alan Says:

    have just finished watching this drama series and found it to be very touching as we watched Lee Yeon Hee struggled in becoming Miss Korea, especially during the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis period, which we all can take leaf from her hardships..kudos to Yeon Hee as her acting skill has improved a lot since her role in the 2006 film A Millionaires First Love..

    ps – in my personal opinion, the local korean episode ratings for Miss Korea do not reflect the quality of this drama script which i found to be full of positive messages and heart warming….

  60. 60 : Janice Says:

    It was such a drag. A chore to watch this drama.

  61. 61 : miKz Says:

    At first I didn’t know any of the actors and actresses from this drama so it took me awhile before deciding to watch it (except the mother of the lead guy cause i’ve seen her before. can’t remember where)

    Must say this drama is NOT a flop. Gives the light plus innocent feeling and it have a nice soundtrack. It’s heartwarming and nostalgic.

  62. 62 : Fullheart5 Says:

    Curious as to why some people are compelled to sat nasty things. Most of the reviews are good and explain the bad ratings so it means ths drama should have a chance.

  63. 63 : kim Hyo Jung Says:

    But happy ending, at the end everybody happy in this drama.

  64. 64 : Good Says:

    Nice soundtrack. Very good story!!!! 🙂
