    Ep 1:
    Oh, I just started it this morning.
    Ryu Jin plays a bumbling idiot, who can’t do anything rt. He was hired as a broadcaster just for his looks. It’s gt to see them make fun of sb w good looks on tv. This is much funnier than Hi Kick.
    There r plenty of familiar faces. Siwan is so pretty. Who is the girl who works in the convenience store? I know I’ve seen her recently, but in which drama?

    I like the chars in this show.
    The Ryu brothers r precious. Tho Ryn Jin’s char is incompetent, a cleanliness freak, he has a heart of gold. I wouldn’t have believed his fear of his father, except that I have a cousin who is the same way. As an adult, she is afraid to talk back to her mother, n would ask me to talk to her mother abt the smallest things on her behalf. The younger Ryu brother is so likable. I like how he is not afraid of his father. He is easy going, but has a mischievous side.
    Talking abt mischievous, I remember now! That girl in the store is from Mischievous Kiss. No wonder she looks so familiar, as does every one else on the show. It feels like meeting up with a group of old friends! Ha!

    Ep 6:
    Ryu Jin Hwang IS a bumbling idiot alright! He thought Si Wan stole 1m won. I love that Si wan has so much air time. What a sensible young man his char is. N they keep making fun of Lee Ki Woo being as tall as a tree. Ha ha ha.

    Ep 11:
    Siwan dresses up as Heo Yeom in METS.
    Ahhh! P-r-e-t-t-y!

    Why haven’t the episodes been subbed lately? =( I really want to catch up on this sitcom. BTW- can someone tell me if Ki Woo is supposed to be Jung So Min’s love interest in this show? They are so cute and funny together! =)

  6. 31
    KDaddict Says:

    It doesn’t look like Ki Woo is Jung So Min’s love interest, at least no to date. She has a rush on Ryu Jin’s char since the day they met in univ.

    KDaddict Says:

    My mistake. I was thinking of So Hyun, you were talking abt So Ming. Their love line is still Unclear up to ep 30. They seemed to have made a good connection at first, but nothing has come it of it yet.

    The love line between Daddy Ryu n the program director is entirely uninteresting.

    Thanks KDaddict! ^_^

    I hate stupid chars, even in a sitcom! Ryu Jin’s char is so incompetent that he can’t even rent an apt properly. He got v upset when his father wanted to propose to his boss, so he wanted to move out, huffing n puffing. That char must be in his mid to late 30’s. I say, it is hi time he moves out with Siwan, so that Siwan wouldn’t have to suffer his dad’s ill-treatment. But in the process of ap-hunting, he got all his money cheated by a con artist! What grown man with years of working experience would be that stupid! That is not sb I can respect, even as a fictional char.

    Ep 35:
    Not too fond of this show right now, bc it is so focused on Father on his girlfriend. Siwan hasn’t been showing up much, nor So Ming. Lee Ki Woo is just a secondary char, n so is the girl next door, Soo Hyun. Not much story going on except Father’s courtship n wedding.

    intyce Says:

    I’ve watched up to Ep.40 and I guess Si Wan has a little crush on So Min. ^_^ I thought So Min would be matched up with Ki Woo but it looks like he and Soo Hyun have something going on.

    Anna Says:
