    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 😉

    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….

    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.

    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.
