  32. 32 : Yu Ri Says:

    like it like it like it <3

  33. 33 : K Says:

    Erm I like it but I kinda disappointed I thought Min Hyuk & Gyu sun end up together at least at the end.I like them 2 together. Remember where he hid the note where she wrote her wish down of their love will blossom.Right at tat moment he think of her its give me a feeling he kinda like her. I thought they will end up together at the end. Well overall it still good with comedy its quite funny.
