    @ Birdybuddy#249: I know, right! But you know, I’m way ahead of you, in terms of being totally addicted to this drama. I worked my whole stretch of night shifts and guess what I did when I got off………..watch SWP! Good grief, I swear I was pretty wide awake when watching it! And even had the energy to write my post!

    Absolutely unbelievable but that is the magic of SWP! What makes this drama so endearing to me is that I connected with all the characters………I loved all the four main leads! This drama is truly refreshing in so many levels…….all the characters are so lovable that no one got on my nerves………the angst between the OTP was short lived and most importantly, no noble idiocy! (Writernim, you’re the best!)…….and above all, there was absolutely no wavering as far as the OTP’s feelings are which makes this drama simply adorable!

    I reeeeeeally love this drama and I’ll miss it a LOT, seriously!!!!

    one can easily watch this drama with no qualms at all, understandably getting higher ratings in s.k. it’s a relationship made in heaven so to speak, so the other parties interested in the lead characters would have no chance to break that love and friendship. it’s a fun series and good to watch!

    The best drama ever!!!The overactings and exaggeratings ,I dunno but just amazed me. The leads did their best and am happy for them. They played their role so well that they can relate to us naturally. Salute to all of you especially the main leads.

    @Adeul #259: why? you wished kim hye jin ended up with kim shin hyuk? now that i am typing this, i noticed they have the same last name. would it work in s.k.? (stupid question)

    Dy.K Says:

    Luv it how the writers wraped it up…so much exceed expectation. Who is the real TEN, the real 2nd generation of Jisung Magz heir..definitely didn’t see that coming.
    And the chemistry between the cast. HJ n SJ the first love couple, HJ n HR the besties, HJ n SH the weirdo couple and last but not least SJ n SH (i don’t how to label them but EVERYTIME SJ drunked, SH alwasy there to piggyback him 😀 )
    The lead couple succeed in giving me a sweet vibe of a pure first love. And the writers put a sweet story of first love reunited.

    This drama made me a Choi Siwon fan!

    malou1010 Says:

    The final episode was just absolute perfection, seriously! It was the sweetest and the most heartwarming episode ever. I got everything I have envisioned to be a PERFECT ENDING for Hye Jin and Sung Joon. Aaaaaww…….that ending just completely melted my heart! BEST ENDING EVEEEEER! I couldn’t be any happier!

    SWP is truly a drama like no other! Finally, I got myself an honest-to-goodness RomCom. The “Com” part had me laughing out loud coz it was just so insanely hilarious! But, oh my gosh, the “Rom” part was the best ever! Absolutely adored the OTP’s beautiful and heartwarming journey to finding their love that almost got away. What I loved the most was that writernim was never stingy in giving us precious OTP moments. Every single OTP moment was so magical………just couldn’t get enough of it!

    Aaaaaahh, jinjja, I totally loved SWP! Most definitely, it’s a keeper for me and has become one of my favorite Korean dramas of all time. It’s an absolute must watch kdrama of 2015. Great story and brilliantly written (You’re the best, writernim!); Awesome Director and Cinematographer; Beautiful OSTs; and of course, a PERFECT cast who were all absolutely amazing. PSJ did an excellent job playing Sung Joon. He owned my heart since day one. I was so drawn into his character that the more I got to know him better, the more endearing his character became. He’s such a brilliant actor who gets even better with each role he plays. I’ll always be a fan! And wow, to be paired with HJE, was like an early Christmas gift for me! I love them so dearly!

  16. 266
    malou1010 Says:

    Another stellar performance by Hwang Jung Eum. I’m super proud of her! She’s such a perfectionist when it comes to every single role she plays and it shows when you watch her dramas. Seriously, there’s something that’s purely magical about her acting. When she does her emotional scenes, she brings you into that moment where you feel the rawness of her emotions. But, oh my gosh, when she does her physical comedy which she has definitely perfected, she turns into this goofy character who is just absolutely crazy funny and so darn adorkable………….that you can’t help but laugh your socks off! What an incredibly gifted actress! I’m such a huge fan of hers!

    I hope MBC gives HJE, PSJ, CSW, and the rest of SWP cast lots of major awards come December coz they surely deserve it. Fingers crossed……..HJE, JS, and PSJ of KMHM will likewise get major awards…………and a Daesang for JS, MBC! Absolutely loved both dramas!

    Dyodo Says:

    Totally love Si won’s character in this drama. Previously he always had a cool, arrogant or rich character. I think his witty plus dork character in this drama proves that he can play any role.. Thumbs up Si won, you did a good job. Hope you can take this kind of role or any that will improve ur acting career.

  19. 269
    LY Says:

    I think that there are some similarities in Choi Siwon’s character in this drama as well as his character in The King of Dramas. Watch The King of Dramas if you want more of Siwon. Don’t be discouraged by the poor rating because The King of Dramas is actually one of the best K-dramas of all time. Believe me, apart from Siwon, you may end up being a fan of both Kim Myung Min and Jung Ryu Won as well.

    Found this article and their photo on hancinema korean entertainment news

    In the photo revealed on the official website of Korea Army Training Center, Choi Si-won and Max look happy and manly. Max with his clear-cut face features and Choi Si-won, reminding of the image of the dissembling Ttol reporter from his recent drama, “She Was Pretty”, made the fans seeing the photos happy.

    Choi Si-won and Max enlisted together on November 19th. They will serve as a conscripted policeman of which service is equivalent to a regular military service, after having finished the fundamental army training there..

    Enjoyed watching this romantic drama!!!

    Hwang Jung Eun – Her acting was cute and clever.

    Park Seo Joon – His acting was cool and consistent.

    Choi Si Won – His acting was warm and witty.

    I just finished watching episodes 9 and 10. I like all the main characters and feel it is a very good show.

    I have never seen Koh Joon-Hee (Ha Ri) before. She is really cute, love her hairstyle.

    I can see why she fell for Sung Joon as they seemed to get along very well. It was Hye Jin’s mistake to make her pretend she was her. I think when Hye Jin did that, she probably thought it would be a one time meeting and that would be the end of it, but…..things took a different turn.

    Siwon is really a great character. I am interested to find out what his background is and why he is living in the hotel. I thought maybe he was from another magazine company spying on Sung Joon’s company, as I believe Sung Joon has 3 months to bring the ratings of the company up.

    @Do Fierai — you are correct about the piece of the puzzle. Prior to Episode 8, Ha Ri found the one piece of the puzzle on Hye Jin’s desk, took it and when she met Sung Joon at the café, she gave him the puzzle. There is a scene when he gets home from their date where he puts the last piece in the puzzle. In Ep 10 – Hye Jin did have the piece of the puzzle again in her hand when she was sitting in bed. Some times I have noticed little slip ups here and there in these dramas. When they screen the scenes prior to releasing surprised no one catches the errors. No big deal I guess.

    Nicole Says:

    Highly recommended!

    Love the chemistry between the two leads. They are so cute together! Loved them both in drama “Kill Me Heal Me”, and loved them much much more in this drama! Anyway, Si Won Oppa is very funny too! I liked his acting and personality. Overall, a great drama. I highly recommend this since it can take away all your stress just by watching it.

    Daebak!!! 😀

    As a fan of Korean mini-series, I absolutely LOVE “She Was Pretty.” It is the first time I saw Hwang Jung Eum and thought she was hysterical. Her mannerisms were both real and adorable. The entire cast was composed of true professionals and complimented each other.The story is nicely knitted. I would vote “She Was Pretty” as number 1in the romantic comedy series.

    Actually, I watch this movie because of Siwon :p I rarely watch drama because I have no time. But this Kim Shinhyuk character is too funny and as if Kim Shinhyuk is created for Choi Siwon.
    Hope there will be some dramas casts him after military service 🙂

    minmin Says:

    The last 2 episodes was a real drag just to show the 2 of them (Hye Jin & Seo Joon) getting married. I was fastforwarding the last episode just to get to the ending and.. the reason I watched to the end was the hope that Hye Jin would get together with Shin Hyuk (Siwon).

    Because of the way the characters were developed, Seo Joon was much disliked as he was a pain and a meanien while Shin Hyuk was so kind and caring towards Hye Jin. I hated the ending.

    Hye Jin’s acting / sillyness in the first few episodes was a pain to watch – to the point of it being so ridiculous and awful.

    I had many many laughs though – cos Choi Siwon was really funny! The best in this drama.

    Love all the four characters, they all shine and have their own distinctive personality. One of the best drama i’ve ever watch. So refreshing.

    Dreamcaster Says:

    This drama is really inspiring to keep love alive and pursue your dreams – no matter what… It also tackles the importance of family & friendship, forgiveness & acceptance. And in love, physical appearance is not very important, but how you feel towards your partner. I so like the twists in the story. Never a boring episode. God job everyone!
