  1. 1 : OK OK OK Says:

    Both leads are pleasant and soothing to the eyes. :)
    Hope their characters played here are welcoming too.
    Not like other drama where one of the lead appearance or characters are “irritating or annoying”

    The 1st related photo, the short hair girl in pink peach blouse, DOES NOT look like Sung Yu Ri at all.

    I love comedy romance :) :) :) :) :) :)

    The first episode is quite good.
    I ‘think’ it’s my favourite first episode of May aired dramas.

  24. 24 : OK OK OK Says:

    Have watched Ep1. A little disappointed becoz not very funny. :(

  25. 25 : rubie ann sayson Says:

  29. 29 : Rien cute Says:

    Uri sica snsd bakalan nyanyi ost ni drama hehe…

    Smg jalan cerita nie drama baguz….

  30. 30 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 3

    Still don’t know what the drama trying to tell. I find it a little bore especially when SYR’s father is an addict gambler. If he still continues to be an irresponsible husband & father, hope his hands will be chop off soon so that he cannot gamble anymore rather than torturing his family members.

    Now he suspect his daughter SYR won the 142 billion dollar toto and he is going after it as though SYR owes him. Fed up.

  31. 31 : jeannie wong Says:

    why this drama Romance Town is not shown i pps.tv?

  32. 32 : miera iera Says:

    haha…i love this drama…
    i like it….
    so romance….

  33. 33 : elham Says:

    Boring boring boring … .
    too much maid story , it makes drama more and more unbearable !! I am watching this drama because of sung yu ri but how long i can do this ? – i have on idea .
    The guy ,gun woo is really handsome but a bit overacting specially as getting angry !
    I DO NOT know why they fill up the story by just maid’s problems and somthing !! there are some intreasting characters who are capable to make a new hit …
    we have left 4 eps and to be honest , there is nothing !

  34. 34 : rica Says:

    I beg ti disagree it is just getting exciting with its twist and turns and anticipated romance happening

  35. 35 : tiech Says:

    this drama is good. i’m getting excited for 5th and 6th episode.

  36. 36 : love Says:

    i am in love with this drama. gah, episode 5 come sooner!

  37. 37 : Sarang Says:

    It’s a really good drama but it’s a bit messy at first. The thing is we fall in love whit the drama no matter what.

  38. 38 : Miimii Says:

    I didn’t watch it yet but it’s on my Drama List ^^!!
    Sung Yuri Unnii

  39. 39 : OK OK OK Says:

    No Soon Geum (Sung Yuri) strikes 142 billion won — that is equivalent to around US$131 million. If divide by all the 5 maids including SYR, then each will get around US$26 million. Wow !!!!! :) :)

    Is the winning money so huge in South Korea? Or the sub translate wrongly? :)

    Anyway, its soooooooooooo lucky to strike 1st price lottery. When will be my turn ???? Hope it will come soon………………… ^.^

  40. 40 : OK OK OK Says:

    At ep 6

    I find the drama is improving. 2 guys after SYR & she starts using her winning money to beautify herself & buying apartment.
    Hope to see more of Sung Yuri & the lead male Jung Gyu Woon. Kamsa Hamnida :) :)

  41. 41 : Nicholas Says:

    The drama is getting better and better. I’ve seen all 6 episodes. I the
    beginning was very confusing, like” Who are these people on 1sr Street?”
    When Gun Woo returns from New York nobody says anything about how
    different he looks after having lost so much weight. I the 1st and 2nd episodes Sung Yuri was overacting. From Episode 3 on she got better
    and better. I hope the plot picks up in interest in the following Episodes.
    I’m praying it will. I want to see Sung Yuri succeed at a great comeback
    to television. She is such a good,dedicated and talented actress.
    Sung Yuri, fighting!!!!

  42. 42 : ree Says:

    Yeah, at first the drama a lil bit boring. But, i started to like it after the last eps. So, the story will have sung yu ri with double identity. Hope it will be good and the rating can increase. There are so many drama to watch this month. Haehahaha ;p

  43. 43 : lengskee Says:

    just watched the 1st epi last night yup it was boring but reading your comments, i hope i will like it too as the series goes on. watched the cast in happy together last night. Sung yu ri is very beautiful.

  44. 44 : OK OK OK Says:

    EP 7

    I like it. Definitely it is improving. Lead actor Jung Gyu Woon found out the the “rich pretty lady” actually is SYR & i guess he still falls in love for her even she is a maid – not knowing she is a RICH maid.
    Not like 2nd male lead who wants to woo SYR becoz of her $$$$$$$. :)

    Looking forward to ep 8………………..
    I will watch 1st thing in the morning………….. ha ha

  45. 45 : Lakisha Says:

    Superior thinking dmenosratted above. Thanks!

  46. 46 : lovekth Says:

    I will watch this!

  47. 47 : RT (Malaysia) Says:

    i love this drama!!! sung yuri so pretty!!! =)

  48. 48 : RT (Malaysia) Says:

    waiting 4 EP7…

  49. 49 : Prettysmile Says:

    It was nice and funny

  50. 50 : sylvia Says:

    I was surprised after seeing that this drama will have 20 episodes. I wonder how will the story will progress later. I actually watched it because of Yuri, the lead guy is new to me and I don’t find him handsome or charming at all. I also can’t feel the chemistry between him and Yuri, well I just hope that since it has 20 episodes, I hope that the the development of the plot wouldn’t be boring or draggy at all

  51. 51 : Oyabun Says:

    This drama is boring. I started watching and skipping parts already. Who cares about maid’s life? The main guy has no charm and his acting are not good. Supporting guy character is useless. SYR is cute as always but no one can understand what her character is after in this messy storing about rich households bed stories with maids. Very disappointing.

  52. 52 : Lee Na Says:

    Watched to the second episode. The storyline could be interesting but I find that SYR’s character is confusing. Too much yelling for simple matters. I like both SYR and JGW’s acting in other dramas, therefore I watch this drama, but can’t find myself liking it to the second episode. I think I’ll watch it only when there’s no other interesting drama to watch for.

  53. 53 : vahdaneh Says:

    Although i skipped watching the drama because of my exams recently But i keep following recaps .
    it sounds fun and interesting :)8

  54. 54 : angelyurihuynh Says:

    romance town so pretty and funny. Yuri’s changed was success. to gra to you my angel . saranghae sung yuri ^_^

  55. 55 : OK OK OK Says:

    For those who find Jung Gyu Woon not so charming. FYI, I also have this kind of feeling at 1st.
    But now I like him :) :)

    He is a kind a person – the more you see him, you will feel that he is a charming man after all in his own style & looks.

    I like him in Dr Champ.
    As for Loving you a Thousand times drama – He also have built up many faithful fans from there who really likes / crazy about him.
    For me, I have not watch yet becoz its a sad drama but its a good ending. :)

    Hope you viewers will like JGW soon. Cheers

  56. 56 : Suzy Says:

    What is Min hyo rin role? Is she the 3rd love interest or something??

  57. 57 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ 56 Suzy

    Min Ryo Rin works for m2 Kim Ming Joon as a maid. She is 12 years younger than her boss. She is interested in m2 but m2 finds her too young for him.
    m2 Kim Ming Joon wants to woo g1 Sung Hyo Ri becoz he found out that she is very rich lady who can even afford to buy an apartment with CASH upfront – no installment. (g1 strike lottery – she has to keep it a secret becoz her dad is a gambler & also other unnecessary trouble) :)

    g1 is interested in m1 Jung Gyu Woon – her boss’s son.

  58. 58 : crazyme Says:

    gun woo gun woo gun woo….OMG this guy.he is really a hunk.

  59. 59 : Tia Mirza Says:

    I love JGW. But i like him better in ‘Dr. Champ’ and in ‘Loving you a thousand time’ ;”)

  60. 60 : darla Says:

    i love them much ;**

  61. 61 : OK OK OK Says:

    22 years old Choi Sung Bong – is an amazing guy. May God bless you :)

  62. 62 : car show Says:

    its so pretty and funny.

  63. 63 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 13

    This drama is getting better and better. It let you think – can poor maid end up with rich man’s son. I don’t think so. My personal opinion – only money can give you some guts to go ahead to fall in love with someone rich & handsome.

    When you really strike lottery like billions of dollars, will you behave like these maids here ?? scheming & calculative :)

    Next round, remember to pay for your betting 1st if not you will end up like one of the maid here. ha ha… empty handed.

  64. 64 : OK OK OK Says:

    ep 14

    Watch those maids hiding the money in the hotel and put the sign – DO NOT DISTURB – damn angry. Really naive & stupid. :(
    Now the money is gone…………….

    Can’t they put some money inside the bank 1st?

  65. 65 : tiny Says:

    This show kind of wreid …not sure wat is going on ? =s

  66. 66 : Wongel Says:

    Great drama! NO Soon Geum is my favorite character in this drama. she really is a great actress. I love this drama because it shows the gap between people. it shows how rich people treat their maids and other people. It is one of the best movies I have ever seen!!!

  67. 67 : aigooo... Says:

    i think this drama is possible, some of them they said its not compatible for the maid and richman son, i dont think so coz if your inlove dont hesitate go on follow your heart coz God choose them for each other.

  68. 68 : bench Says:

    i hope in real life SYR and JGW they look good together i’ve watch one of their interview SYR always teasing JGW, maybe she treat her like her younger brother, but i like their chemistry, and i cant help to laugh their film making on the hospital SYR always looking JGW butt lol.and he tease that maybe she like his butt thats why.

  69. 69 : drama freak Says:

    i don’t know why don’t they put the money in the bank?? and at 1st…they can’t recognize the maid after she make up?? HUH??? tht is really impossible ok….hmm… don’t really like this drama….at 1st kinda like it… but now the interest towards this drama is gone….

  70. 70 : crazyme Says:

    i love gun woo and soon geum…

  71. 71 : OK OK OK Says:

    Just finish ep 16. The story is very interesting & exciting. Lead actress deserve the 75 billion won and the apartment she bought & the maid with 2 kids deserve the 10 billion.
    The other 3 maids – did not give out what they have promised to give should end up nothing. :)

    Still better to trust money than man. 😉

  72. 72 : jh Says:

    This drama is indeed weird..Its supposed to be a romance comedy.. but its not really romantic neither isit funny.. why why why??? wats going on???

  73. 73 : mona Says:

    what’s the drama all about???? but i always count on sung yu ri :) all her drama is great……

  74. 74 : Lee Na Says:

    The drama is all about money instead of romance. So “Money Town” suits well as the title 😀 or “Lottery Town”. Nothing is of comedy here. I find it quiet disappointing as I like both SYR and JGW. There are left with two more episodes for this week. I keep watching only because of the lead actors are among my fave. I’ll give it low rating among other dramas airing at the same time as this one.

  75. 75 : rose Says:

    I just keep watching this drama because i like both lead actor & actress,
    but the story line is not that interesting…

  76. 76 : deeAn Says:

    what a disappointed drama :( there’s not a gimmick from the beginning

  77. 77 : Michie Says:

    I want to know the title of a piano song in this drama from episode 18.

  78. 78 : ard Says:

    in retrospect, the vietnamese girl acted her role so well. among the maids, and even among the women characters, ttu acted her role perfectly. min yu rin can’t act. she did not justtify her character as young immature maid. there was nothing extra ordinary about her in this drama. geunu’s grandma is is versatile, how i wish she had been given a larger share of the parts to play. the men did their roles better than the women. JGW justified his role as a docile son who was a little dumb.

    before i buy a film, i always read a comment that film for reference, including Romance town. but I was wrong when I come to assess the film without watching it myself.
    I just want to say, that I like… Romance Town….

  81. 81 : agatha villarica Says:

    this drama did not rate high. i think the Chemistry between JGW and SYR was not really great. it did not capture the patronage of many people.

  82. 82 : suzan Says:

    I want to know the title of a piano song in this drama from episode 7.when they were in the island 2 meet his grand mother ..

  83. 83 : Wulan Says:

    i dont really like this drama. i think this drama rather not clear. and the acting not quite good

  84. 84 : hanchaerim Says:

    i feel disappointed with the ending of this drama.. it’s not clear enough.. the character and the acting are not quite good too..

  85. 85 : Dominic Says:

    im really disapointed with dis drama too…i felt bored and struggling to finish each chapter of the drama…to me, the plot is not clear and confusing at the same time…i like eugene but i think dis is not her best acting in a comedy-romance drama…i prefer eugene in her more serious character like the one in Baker king, KIM TAK GOO and Swallow the Sun drama…such a waste…:-(

  86. 86 : Dominic Says:

    This drama is boring. I started watching and skipping parts already……besides, i cant feel any chemistry between the lead actors…:-(

  88. 88 : hanserial Says:

    the director and writer themself are confused that’s why everything in this drama is confusing it’s better to watch by skipping so that u get enough time to watch another good drama

  89. 89 : Sammie Says:

    This drama is total waste of time. Its BORING it doesn’t even focus on romance it’s more centered on the whole money issue. Like seriously don’t watch it. If your gonna watch it skip threw it if your Ju’s curious but seriously it’s totally disappointing

  90. 90 : Annie Says:

    BORING!!!! The title of the drama should be “Money Town” or “Lotto Town”.

  91. 91 : wiwinzin Says:

    this drama is very BORING and really wasting time, for people who will see, i suggest not seeing

  92. 92 : 吳承和 Says:

    好愛這部 浪漫小鎮 Romance Town 超好看!! Good !!

  93. 93 : ericka grace Says:

    this drama have a good and interesting part esp. when the guy didn’t recognize the girl then they started dating, and when the girl won the lottery.. After I saw this episode my mind started to have many imaginations and expectations but suddenly it didn’t happen .There are many parts that are uncleared, made me dissapoint too. The story became all about money… I really hate the ending.. uNtil my sleeping time cant forget and get over with the ending!!!

  94. 94 : Marie Says:

    The ending was a let down, the story was dis jointed and somethings were touched on, but never resolved. Plus, where the hell was San most of the time? He was three for goodness sake… why did it seem like no one was ever watching him?

  95. 95 : ance Says:

    i really want to watch this drama coz of Jung Gyu Woon…i saw him in dr.champ and i think he’s charming…but after reading some of the comments here i don’t think 20 eps of a disappointing ending is worth my time…guess i’ll just watch JGW in he’s other dramas…

  96. 96 : Lacy Dumas Says:

    No wonder this drama got bad ratings! It is horrible!!!

  97. 97 : Orang Kampung Says:

    one word.. Stupid story! Sung Yu Ri is good acting but the story make you stupid to watch.. mean script write is waste.

  98. 98 : Orang Kampung Says:

    disappointed drama..

  99. 99 : Badkitty0011 Says:

    idk why this drama got bad reviews I actually liked it , it was not your typical love story

    and loved how the maids won the lotto and the rich people started getting poor but it was sad when the rich people were still looking down at the maids like they were trash and the maids actually want to help them out

    overall it was good to me so it jus goes to show that u cant always look at the reveiws

  100. 100 : bblve Says:

    i want to buy this film, but i read the c0mments here, so im n0t g0ing.

  101. 101 : ditto Says:

    agree with most of the comments that i read in the last page, it is b-o-r-i-n-g, nuff said.
