    A fun drama to watch. Really interesting. A good drama to begin with after the ending of MDBC. KBS really pulling all stops for their year end drama. Kudos!

  20. 20 : V Says:

  28. 28 : Diamond Says:

    Thank goodness Yoo Seung Ho & Yoon Shi Yoon declined the offer as lead actor. The reason i love watching this drama definitely because handsome yet cute Kim Young Kwang who really express the sweetness as the drama title. Ofcourse beside the interesting story line itself.

  29. 29 : Moped Says:

    A sweet and pleasant drama. Good drama for relaxing after a hectic day.

  30. 30 : chill Says:

    I am a fan of both Yoo Seung Ho and Yoon Shi Yoon but I am glad they declined the offer the role just seems perfect for Kim Young Kwang. I can’t wait to see Yoo Seung Ho’s next project.

    Soo Ae is as beautiful as ever. This drama is light, fun and sweet. The couple look good together.

  43. 43 : chacha Says:

    I really love this drama..whatever about the rating..i really enjoyed watching this drama ^^

  44. 44 : tigerb Says:

    two more episodes and the issues will be resolved. i want to find out why kwon’s father gave the land to na ri’s mother when she was 15. i don’t know about competing dramas on mondays and tuesdays, but this series is good to watch – one of those that you don’t get flustered by the characters lives.

  45. 45 : Ryan Says:

    it’s interesting at the beginning but i found it become more boring at the middle episode i stopped watching it when episode 10.

  46. 46 : tigerb Says:

    with all the flashbacks, seems like the writers could not do anything more interesting, should have shortened the number of episodes to have an impact. the ratings are understandable. didn’t get the info i wanted to know, but that’s okay.

  47. 47 : AG97 Says:

    I’m so glad it ended well. So hottie both KYK and LSH 🙂

  49. 49 : TWoo Says:

    Never liked Soo Ae in any drama till now. I’m on episode 2 . . . hilarious.

  50. 50 : parasss Says:

    The female actress Soo Ae not good for this drama coz she’s face names now a women not young women or girl. So not match for acting cute for her face. For 2 actor lead, she like mama, cant be girlfriend even here she’s older then them. Or maybe she can cover for her age with colour her hair or make curly or straight hair or more long so that audience not see her face but look how colour her hair, how shining her long hair with balck colour n bla.. Maybe difficult to find actress for mid level actor. Actually if Korea choose some models to be actress not choose from girls band, maybe handsome actor can be balance with how much they have pretty actress. As we know models have good looking also good for style.

  51. 51 : TWoo Says:

    One of the annoying things about this drama is how the leads sometimes talk to each other like they’re actors reading off their character’s lines. The writer(s) wrote a draft and did nothing more to it I guess.

  52. 52 : Daisy Vega Says:

    Don’t care what others think about this drama. I believe SWEET STRANGER AND ME is a grrrrreat drama! It’s certainly one that I’ll be seeing again and again. There may have been an age difference in the actors but as some special guy once quoted, “age ain’t nothing but a number, baby.” I loved the way everything was settled and how they got ready for the final episode to come to a close, which was the best! I hate when they try to rush the ending. CONGRATULATIONS cast and crew for a job well done!

  53. 53 : Emma Says:

    I’m still watching this drama. And I really love it until now.. I wonder why the rating is declining.. The story line is a little bit unusual, it’s what made this drama interesting. Falling in love with your misterious young stepfather?? Hmmm…that’s why I want to know..

  54. 54 : doris aguirre Says:

    it was good until ep 10 after that every episode is dragging…….

  55. 55 : Coolbeans Says:

    I am trying hard, but, I honestly cannot remember anything about this drama except the cute model was in it and he lived with the lead character’s mother. I doubt if I made it to 8 episodes.

  56. 56 : rain_hye Says:

    like this drama.lead character i an ideal man next to lovers in paris.

  57. 57 : rain_hye Says:


  58. 58 : Kay Says:

    This was a really so-so drama for me. It started out really promising and had some great characters, but the story was so slow and felt like it never went anywhere. Just an okay watch.
