  14. 14 : Mystisith Says:

    Hope it will be a good comedy! For some reasons I’m rapidly getting tired of Ohlala Couple which I thought I would like.
    A mix between On Air and History of a Salaryman would be awesome!
    I will try to keep my expectations low and see what happens…

    love jung ryu won the first 2 episode was pretty entertaining LOVE it lol

  26. 26 : Micc Says:

    First two episodes were entertaining! Looking forward to more.

  27. 27 : butterfry90 Says:

    The song that came out is very nice. It sounds like yesung. Is it him?

  28. 28 : Hanako Says:

    I wont watch this movie as I never like this actress, her first drama was with Kim Sam Soon and she is acting like a bitch in that drama and if she is a main actress I wont watch her movie. It is awkward when you watched other dramas you just feel they don’t suit to be main actress like So Yeon who acted like a bitch in All About eve suddenly became main actress…sorry to say I wont watch for this one , I guess there are better other dramas to watch

  29. 29 : Mystisith Says:

    @Hanako: Different kind of roles is what actors and actresses fight for. They would be bored to death if they played always the same characters. Furthermore she is an excellent actress: All those who have seen History of a Salaryman can testify on this. She has a strong personality and I prefer that over formatted doormat actresses. I guess in the end it’s your loss.

  30. 30 : AandK Mom Says:

    Watched first 2 ep. Seems promising. Will definitely follow this.

    Does anyone notice that in a lot of dramas, the lead ladies’ faces look very unnatural at the beginning? After a while, they look more natural. I always wonder is it because they just ‘touch up’ their faces right before the start of the shooting. :>

  31. 31 : KDaddict Says:

    I’ve heard (seen rather) ppl say they don’t like this actress cos she is ‘ugly’. I don’t think she is. Granted, she is no Kim Tae Hee, but I think there is a place for actresses who do quirky roles, which are more funny than romantic, who make u laugh rather make u swoon. Heaven knows there r enough Korean actresses whose raison d’etre is their beauty, natural or touched up.

  32. 32 : KDaddict Says:

    And Mystisith is right, in #29: this actress was hilarious in History of Salaryman!

  33. 33 : kdfan Says:

    JRW is beautiful and so talented. Love love love her in Salaryman. Is this drama as funny as Salaryman? Will start watching soon.

  34. 34 : robert Says:

    @hanako:jung ryu won is a good actress. you are the b**ch ,not jung ryu won.

  35. 35 : hshshs Says:

    siwon is amazing in this drama, love his crazy character so much!!

  36. 36 : kdfan Says:

    can’t imagine k drama production is as crazy as depicted. ep 1 is exhilarating. started with AK at the peak of his trade but ruthless to the core, and he toppled all the way down bec of an act of conscience. it’s nice when it’s quite clear where the story is heading. looks promising.

  37. 37 : KDaddict Says:

    Eps 1, 2:
    I find these 2 eps fantastic! I’m pulled in by the acting of both leads. KimMM n Jung RW r Both acting powerhouses. It’s good to see that the leads r so balanced in their gt acting skills. Whoever doesn’t like Jung RW, well, it’s their loss.
    I CAN believe that the world of drama production is that crazy. We were given a glimpse of it in On Air. The char of Anthony Kim might be a bit exaggerated, but not by much.
    Even after he is down n out, n finds a 2nd chance in Lee Go Eun’s script, he keeps lying to her abt her marketability, n market value. The Japanese investor’s young beautiful wife understands Korean, cos she is chuckling when she hears him lie when he translates to Lee. I hope she will tell Lee what the Chairman actually said in praise of her script.
    Kim is such a jerk that you can’t help but hope that he’ll eat a lot of humble pie, n will suffer a lot at the hands of the Chairman, who is obviously a big big gang boss.
    I’ve seen such a Japanese gang boss in this exact same big Japanese mansion in an earlier KD, but can’t remember which one it is at the moment. Was it in History of a Salaryman?
    This is funny in a much more sophisticated way than Ohlala Couple, which is but a one-trick pony, in cross-dressing!

  38. 38 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 3, 4:
    The struggle between A Kim and his former asst, now Oh Tae Pyo, lays bare n exaggerates the competitiveness between production companies. Kim’s nemesis Oh is definitely the bad guy. Yet when he make plans to take down A Kim, I want him to succeed!
    Siwon playing the numbskull of a popular actor is entertaining. He played a similar role in an earlier show, Oh Lady, w Chae Rim. That is the bright spot of these 2 chars, which r otherwise quite dark. I was getting disheartened by all the betrayal n dirty tricks it takes to survive in the k-ent ind, until a good guy finally becomes of station S. Finally, we see ONE upright person in this whole show, besides Writer Lee!
    I hope the new station head and Lee together give Kim so much humble pie to eat that it comes out of his ears!!

  39. 39 : Meow Says:


    Wow, u recognised a good talent when u see one! Jung Ryu Won’s acting in Kim Sam Soon was so impressionable that you really remembered it so well! 🙂

    I do agree that when ever i see her in any casting, it’d remind me of her part in KSS. But it also get to show how well she portray the character. Also a correction, KSS was not her 1st drama, she has been acting for a few years way b4 KSS comes along. KSS brought out the best in her, i guess. (Though i must say she still have rooms for improvement, especially her facial acting skill…)

    So, my conclusion to your “verdict”… don’t watch if you won’t. It’s your choice and your lost, not ours! ^_^

    Can’t wait for Ep 5… ^___^

  40. 40 : sousou Says:

    Good surprise for this ending year 2012.
    There were a lot of goods dramas this year.
    This one is very interesting

  41. 41 : kriss Says:

    Hey! I’m not sure how this drama will turn out but what I’m sure of is I love the first two episodes!

  42. 42 : kimchilee Says:

    if anyone has doubts about Ryu Won’s acting, should go watch Princess Ja Myung Go.. her acting there was superb. Her face is one natural beauty without any make up or hopefully without any plastic surgery.. she is as natural as can be. She looks better without any lipstick..

    Meow, you are right. her acting in KSS was so memorable, I’ll always remember her from KSS and Princess Ja Myung Go.

  43. 43 : Melda Says:

    I like her better in Princess Ja Myung Go.

  44. 44 : Micc Says:

    Although it is still great cast, great acting, the obstacles after obstacles plot is driving me nuts!

  45. 45 : dramamama Says:

    I’m enjoying every episode of this drama. Kim Myung Min is outstanding as always. Jung Ryu Won is also doing a great job. Love watching them together…

  46. 46 : swift Says:

    I did not put much interest in watching this drama but found it to be interesting as the writer is emulating some of the elements/ situation encountered in producing dramas, even though most of the plots here are fictional. Yet, the writer is giving us some insights of the key people involved in the decision making of drama slots given. We as the viewers only need to pick and choose dramas that are of our interest, whereas the great efforts are taken to make dramas possible. Uhmmmm………

  47. 47 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 5, 6:
    This show is SENSATIONAL! And I don’t even have a Kim Myung Min crush. I mean, I can see he is an outstanding actor, but I don’t go goo goo ga ga over him. But the show itself I completely adore at this point.

    Siwon is sooo funny making fun of the ’empty-headed top star’ persona. I can see his acting improve by leaps n bounds.

    What I love most is the plot. Yes, there is obstacle after obstacle, but they feel real. One wave laps over Anthony Kim. He almost falls down. Yet thru tenacity, audacity, cleverness, he finds a way to stand up, each n every time. It is an intelligent script to tells us Stories of behind the scene going-ons in getting dramas into production in the pursuit of ratings.

    But why r all of Anthony Kim’s suits 3 sizes too small? N why is he wearing a dead animal on every jacket?

    JungRW brings to life this girl who is committed to her writing, true to her ideals, n cares abt the ppl she works with. She’ll be a good influence for Kim.
    I like it that so far, there is no hint of romance, but this being KD, will both men fall for her in the end?

  48. 48 : jangerr Says:

    This is such a gem! Nothing seems to be good currently so I was quite hesitant to watch this… But what a pleasant surprise it has turned out to be! Finally, there’s something for me to watch!

  49. 49 : tera Says:

    Dear Hanako…no one expect you to watch this drama or other drama…so you don’t have to voice it up coz it make this comment board messy….by the way if you don’t like jung ryu won or kim so yeon…who cares…just keep it to yourself…the casting has been done and the drama has started…no one ask for your opinion….I’m sorry if my comment sounds offensive and i understand every person is entitled to their own opinion…however since this comment site is for public, please just try to focus on the plot or storyline only…don’t judge it just by character played by the actress before this….

  50. 50 : hny Says:

    finished watch 6 eps of this drama..Interesting n gave me a knowledge about make/produce a drama! … Nice to see Jung ryu won act again… for me she is good actress in KSS..now I love his character as writer Lee.. No doubt for his act. Kim Myung Min.. now he Become old actor who enter to my favorite list 😀 , n dear Si won like always.. just makes the drama ‘Blink Blink”… but I like him..cutey 😀 😀
    Anyway.. this is the third drama I will watch for this month after I mis u & FH2.. Now I’m curious with next eps ..it’s seem writer Lee got Amnesia,,aigooo !!

  51. 51 : eve Says:

    i couldnot stop laugh watch ep 5 & 6 its so funny and i’ve got full excited watch it thos two ep run with a cruel problem but softly had been solve,and i love watch the character show a deep impresive for me
    i love this drama more and more

  52. 52 : sara Says:

    I’ve watched 5 eps and i can tell i like it. The story line is fresh, acting is excellent and we can see what’s happening behind the scene of drama making business.

    I hate most of the characters except Anthony. I ‘m sure lots of people can’t stand him but i love his persistent, confident personality and never-give up attitude. At least he is honest with himself and his beliefs regardless of what they are. KMM is shining like always. He is so strong that overshadows everyone and stands on his own. I sometimes feel he is too big for the small screen when i’m watching the drama. He has a kind of charm that you even can’t find in some of the most handsome actors. Really the best Korean actor ever. I hope his character won’t have any love story or that hateful theme of the bad-boy-changes-because-of-the-woman. He is gorgeous by himself.

    I don’t like LGU character. I even hate her. She is so fickle and weak mostly like a tree which is shaking even with a breeze. But i like JRW. She is doing great. But am i greedy if i wish the actress was Ha Ji Won or Kim Sun ah? Someone as high level as KMM?

    Siwon. I haven’t watched any of his dramas nor i’m a Suju lover so officially it’s the first time i’m watching his work. I don’t feel anything. He is neither as great as Micky nor as stiff and weak as Kim Hyun Joong. He is ordinary.

  53. 53 : Gene Lau Says:

    I couldn’t stop watching this drama. 1. I haven’t seen a black humorous one for a while. 2. The story is pretty intense. Love Love Love it….

  54. 54 : wazabi Says:


  55. 55 : Mystisith Says:

    This drama is one of the best of 2012, if not the best. It’s smart, witty, well acted (even Siwon whom I was worried about, delivers perfectly), well filmed and full of heart. The music is epic. Who can say this drama is boring?

  56. 56 : mic Says:

    rating this ep? horse doctor rating:17.7%

  62. 62 : kdbig Says:

    oh my god its like the salaryman all over again, the characters are hilarious and intense comedic story LOVE it

  63. 63 : Afra Says:

    away from the love romance drama … It's a true business story , YOU NEVER GET BORED in any sec while watching it

    great acting !! Anthony omg !! <333 love his acting , everything is sooo good in this drama <33 !!


  64. 64 : salsa pyareka (@salsapyareka) Says:

    I love king of drama n I want this drama be the best

  65. 65 : unknown unknown Says:

    Kim Myung Min is really outstanding in this drama. There was one scene in the car where Anthony Kim looked at Lee Go Eun sleeping/drooling. His expression of disgust, especially the look in his eyes, was just excellent acting. His overwhelming screen presence in this drama so far is just amazing.

  66. 66 : jangerr Says:

    This drama is RI-DI-CU-LOUS! As in ridiculously good!!! The storyline, the plot, the cast, the acting – all are simply immaculate.

    It started off at such a frenetic and maniacal pace that it leaves one breathless. There are so much plotting, strikes and counter strikes from the moment go. Just when you wish it will slow down so that you can catch your breath, it does just that. And when it slows down, it starts to show the heart and depth. Oh! What a gem of a drama this is!

    The leads are such a hoot! Love, love, love KMM! His Anthony is certainly larger than life. From the way he dresses – with his fur collar and a size too small suits – to the way he sneers and smirks, he epitomises self-centredness and arrogance. I agree with unknown unknown @65 above that KMM is really outstanding. He has such a magnetic presence that makes you felt drawn to him against your will.

    Fortunately, JRW is able to hold her own beside him though just barely so. She brought to Go Eun a spunkiness and earnestness that is truly endearing.

    Will certainly be following this drama very, very closely.

  67. 67 : Antonella Says:

    The best drma

  68. 68 : Katherine Says:

    I like so much this drama

  69. 69 : Hyuna Says:

    Fighting Siwon oppa!!!!

  70. 70 : jangerr Says:

    Ah! I forgot to mention about CSW in my #66 post above. Actually this role is right down the alley for him. It is more of the same. His Hyun Min character is somewhat similar to that of some of his previous dramas, namely Oh! My Lady and Spring Waltz. A good looking, arrogant, egoistical and slightly dim-witted hunk of a star (or star wannabe in the case of Spring Waltz), kind of like a male bimbo or ‘himbo’. But one can see his improvement and his comfort level over the years. He’s definitely relishing it right now, hamming it up and enjoying himself immensely!

  71. 71 : kriss Says:

    Yes, yes, yes! This drama is a riot! It is certainly evident the 3 leads are having a blast!

  72. 72 : salsa pyareka (@salsapyareka) Says:

    may be achallenge for choi siwon to act as arogan person likekang hyeon min…,

  73. 73 : dramamama Says:

    Love this drama so much. KMM as outstanding as always. I admire JRW’s character as LeeGoEun. She always sticks to her belief & principle in a mild (as in not ruthlessly) & persistent way. She cld have chosen the better offer (luxurios apartment & all) by the rival co. at the beginning but instead she chose to keep her promise to Anthony who at that time, cld not give her much but was taking advantage of her & her much sought after script! If only there’s a slightly stronger love line in this drama, it wld have been perfect for me…. Can’t wait till the next ep…

  74. 74 : dramamama Says:

    Oh yeah, forgot to add one more point: It wld be fantastically marvelous if this drama can be a couple of episodes longer. I really really really love it!

  75. 75 : hny Says:

    this drama make me think is that really hard just for produce one drama!! .. is it necessary to risk a lives! .. OMG, if it is true .. how lucky I’m as a spectator who get entertainment from a drama that resulted from efforts unimaginable sacrifice. 😀

    Anthony Kim.. no wonder Sung Min Ah still want you.. the scene between you n min ah at sofa.. you looks so cold, but lying in your lap min ah can feel how warm you, and with only one finger caress .. min ah can feel more than one sensation 😀 it’s amazing power you have as a men!!… agree with @jangerr, U has magnetic presence…

    JRW.. so far she act is good, the way she tried to get in to anthony personal life … very sweet, not too agressive . I like it >>> CSW .. hope can see his role improved in next eps also the rating move up..coz I think this is great drama. fighting KOD!!

  76. 76 : unknown unknown Says:

    Everybody quickly go and watch Episode 9. Kim Myung Min’s screen presence is unbeatable here – just excellent acting especially the crying parts. There was another actor that I thought was superb this year – Joo Won in Bridal Mask. For those who have seen both shows, do you agree with me?

    The King of Drama is very captivating so far…should be one of the best drama this year. Anthony Kim is such a flawed character but as a viewer, I can’t help rooting for him and hoping that he could beat the odds.

  77. 77 : sara Says:

    @unknown unknown
    I haven’t watched BM. But i firmly believe KMM is the best actor in Korea and no one has reached to his level for now. Read this article to know how great he is.


  78. 78 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hi @sara

    Totally agree…Kim Myung Min is an awesome actor – deserved all the acting awards that he has received so far. Joo Won in Bridal Mask is a worthy successor if you have a chance to watch the show – the kind that could make the viewer root for him whether in tears, laughter, hero or villian moves all in one character/one drama.

    I am glad that Korea has such leading actors so that viewers like us can enjoy many more great dramas to come.

  79. 79 : jangerr Says:

    Fasten your seatbelt before you start watching episode 9. This episode will bring you on an emotional rollercoaster ride. First half will have you tearing and sobbing your heart out while the next half will have you punching your fist in the air in jubilation. All the while it will have your heart thumping wildly, especially the last 10 minutes or so… The ride begins, once again…

  80. 80 : jangerr Says:

    @74 dramamama & all KoD fans

    Good news! Our wishes may just come true! SBS is reportedly negotiating a four-episode extension of KoD, and things are looking likely that it will happen. That will be such a wonderful Christmas present!

  81. 81 : KING2Hearts Says:

    every episode get Worse … in overall it’s really BAD DRAMA

  82. 82 : jen Says:

    This drama is DAEBAK! Kim Myung Min’s performance is excellent and the chemistry between the two leads is perfect…even though the love story is not setup yet we get to see glimpses of it…
    I love how almost every single episode will keep us on edge…Ep had me crying and laughing at the same time…I really hope they give us 4more episodes to see their relationship develop more.

  83. 83 : sara Says:

    @unknown unknown
    Yeah, ep 9 is daebak. I think even his co-stars are impressed by his acting. When he walked on his four and begged, i felt sooo sad. I could feel his pain, his hurt pride and how he was willing to save his work whatever it takes. Even in crying scenes. I’ve noticed that lots of actors stare at some place or their co-stars and don’t move their eyes so they can make them watery and we think they are crying. But he doesn’t need to do that. He has become one with his character so his tears flow automatically.

    This Drama is DAEBAK !

    It’s the best show airing these days, hands down. Ep 10, wow!
    @KING2Hearts: I’m sure you’re here to troll for the best KD drama poll. Please spare us your presence, you’re ridiculing yourself with such childish comments. Thanks.

    @80 Jangerr
    Thank you! It wld be a great X’mas present indeed! I’m really looking forward to it. Can’t seems to get enough of this drama especially the ever so charismatic [email protected]……..

  87. 87 : hny Says:

    watch ep 10

    Wow… if all people in that place try to hold back their laughter when Anthony Kim singing.. here, I just big LOL…wakakakkakakkakekekekkekkakakkakka anthony, daebak! 😀 😀

  88. 88 : kriss Says:

    I love the ending remarks by Anthony to Go Eun. It’s simply squeal- and swoon-worthy. Coming from him, it’s akin to a love declaration.

    “Yes, I do. I may not believe anybody in this world,
    I may not even believe in myself sometimes,
    but I believe in you.”

  89. 89 : KDaddict Says:

    Anthony has real ingenuity, in spotting an opportunity rt away, in ep. 9. He also has balls of steel, if not hands of steel, which almost got chopped off.
    One problem solved. Another one arises. Anthony to the rescue. That’s the way of this drama.
    Good as it is, I hope a 4 ep extension won’t just prolong this pattern. It’ll get tiring if repeated a few more times.

    I don’t think the actress playing the actress and Anthony Kim look like they might have been lovers 5 years ago. In the flashback, she looks like a baby.

  90. 90 : torri Says:

    i love this drama, this Anthony is fun to watch , the guys just keeps fighting and never gives up , cant wait to see how he handles this whole script issue next ep

  91. 91 : sara Says:

    Agree. She even told him “i make you love me”. It seems it’s always been a one-sided love.

  92. 92 : unknown unknown Says:

    I particularly like the scene where Anthony stoically and suavely refused the money pooled together by his staff and then rushed into his room with face all contorted to suppress his tears…classic!

  93. 93 : stellar Says:

    SBS and MBC drama decreased every monday because of presidential debate mess up their primetime drama schedule, KBS is lucky to have 2 channel they broadcasted Presidential Debate on KBS1 and KBS2 drama in primetime got advantage with better rating from broadcast as scheduled than the other 2 channels…
    that suck,,,this drama should have better rating,,,

  97. 97 : ggs Says:

    as expected from KBS, they are smart and know how to play with their timeslot and their 2 channels to avoid the competition..

    btw, i read about this drama will get extend before,
    anyone know is that confirmed? this is the only drama i watch now adays don’t want this drama to finish quickly

  98. 98 : something Says:

    correction not every monday but last tuesday and this monday

  99. 99 : KDaddict Says:

    Is Anthony falling in love w writer-nim? He keeps needling her for her lack of kissing experience. He just wants to ‘teach’ her. Ha ha ha.
    One hot kiss coming up!

  100. 100 : yha jing Says:

    That’s correct !!! Anthony is falling in love with Lee Gue Engk but ignoring his true feeling. Man has the tendency to fall in love with the woman who jokes him around. It’s so funny to see that Anthony pushing the writer to do a better job about the kissing scene. There’s chemistry between two people.
    I hope they can add several more episodes and some love scene between choi siwon and li yuan.

  101. 101 : kriss Says:

    Yup, yup! They definitely have feelings for one another, though both of them are not admitting it and maybe not even aware of it… Look at how they look at the other ‘secretly’… I’ll certainly welcome more episodes to see their relationship develop. A hot kiss or two will not hurt! Haha!

    As for HM, I hope to see him falling for MA and then all the antics he’ll do to get MA to fall for him. That will be so hilarious!

  102. 102 : hny Says:

    ep 11-12
    Hurdle after another !!… anthony so hard your life…. ^_^ btw,
    … is that true,… your real name is Kim Bong Dal…wakakakkakakkekekekkk.. I love that’s car scene.. I’m so excited see your face expression.. lucu bangetttt 😀
    and SW ..oh MG..You are ‘super-mischievous’ , eating garlic before kissing scene … wakakakaka .. hilarious! while Min Ah getting ready even she brush her teeth… I don’t know maybe it will be fun if the writer makes both of you falling in love (CINLOK) 😀
    Kiss scene in this week eps .. begun, not so so.. but sweet I guess althought is just Go Eun’s dream…and I think the relationship between anthony n LGE is better like Go Eun said to SMN.. just like an evil CEO and angelic writer!.. they would be always fun together than as a lover..
    I hope this drama have more than 16 eps.. coz I’m to lazy to find another drama, if KOD already end.

  103. 103 : elaine Says:

    loving this drama so much… hope to have more than 16 episodes… The main actor and actress are awesome! siwon is so funny and loving it! great casting… please more episodes!!!!

  104. 104 : KDaddict Says:

    Kim MM may not be a ‘Flower Boy’, n he doesn’t look as sweet as Siwon, but he usually looks fine as himself. So why r they giving him greasy, slicked, combed over hair, with a big puff, eyeliner that is too thick for his eyes, 3 piece suits that are 3 sizes too small, n dead animals on his collar? It is not very flattering, is it? It makes Anthony Kim less attractive than Kim MM.
    I’m guessing that if they had styled him differently, the show would have better ratings! Boo.

    But I love the way Siwon is willing to make a fool of himself. Look at how silly he behaves when filming w that actress he hates. He is as mature as a 6 yr old, and he is lovely!

  105. 105 : tc Says:


    Totally agree with you on Anthony’s appearance. Really find it hard to accept his oil slicked hair and his eyeliner which turned me of in the first episode. I nearly quit the drama but luckily the fast paced plot managed to keep me captivated.

  106. 106 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hi @tc-105 & KDaddict

    When I saw the first episode, I really thought that the appearances of Anthony Kim and Lee Go Eun could never fit together – the standards were too far apart. However, this week’s two episodes (ep 11 & 12) turned out to be so unbelievably romantic, subtle but completely drew the viewers towards hoping that the two of them can be together even though they are still as different as chalk and cheese. A glance here and a smile there – so lovely. Very interesting this storyline 🙂

  109. 109 : jangerr Says:

    Ooooo!!! The kiss is HI-LA-RI-OUS!!! Oh, how our writer-nim tried her darned best to resist… to utter failure…Truly, resistance is futile. And that’s not all. Wait till you find out what happened next!…

  110. 110 : KDaddict Says:

    Good to see u again. Welcome to the tea party. The Queen of Hearts awaits! Oh wait……, that’s a diff drama on another channel!
    That goes to show the prowess of the leads. Those two can convince us of anything, given a half-decent script, and this script is much much more than half decent!

  111. 111 : kdfan Says:

    @KDaddict i think Anthony’s appearance meant to show that he created an identity to hide his true self. His sleek hair makes him aloof and cold. His eyeliner rather fearsome. His dressing makes him look haughty. The animals around him is unusual for a man, it screams don’t touch me. Overall, i would not approach someone who looks like him unnecessarily. He is a vulnerable little boy hiding inside a confident looking, fearless and rather flamboyant shell. He is starting to reveal his true self to Go eun. I hope as he opens up more, they will remove his makeup and eyeliner. He looked really good without them as his young self at the airport leaving for US. I can live with his sense of fashion 🙂

  112. 112 : hny Says:

    @KDaddict,@sara SJS n @tc.. Hi,

    did you ever watch ‘ closer to heaven’?… that’s KMM and Han Ji won movie…I just find it on YouTube and try to find the full movies.. it’s seem a great story… could you guys tell me where I can find it or watch OL perhaps, tq

  113. 113 : young locke Says:


  114. 114 : leyeayea Says:

    This drama is so great. It was unique and pretty amazing. :bd

  115. 115 : KDaddict Says:

    I think you r absolutely rt that AK’s appearance is meant to create a distinct identity. It is a rather unattractive appearance or identity. You say you won’t approach sb who looks like that unnecessarily. Me, I find it difficult to accept a heroine falling in love w a guy who dresses like that, becos our style reflects who we r. If it were not for that document holder he is always carrying, he looks like a pimp to me! Ha ha ha.

  116. 116 : KDaddict Says:

    It’s on Gooddrama.net
    Happy viewing!

  117. 117 : jangerr Says:

    Another show by KMM which is pretty good is Bad Family. It was in this show that I first saw him. Like what KDaddict has mentioned, he is no flower boy but still I noticed him then because of his acting. In fact, that is one show that showcased his comic timing!

  118. 118 : stellar Says:

    any news of the extensions? does anyone know?

  119. 119 : wanda Says:


  120. 120 : kdfan Says:

    @KDaddict i can accept Go eun falling for AK after she knows more about him and they went through a few roller coaster rides to save their show, so it’s believable that she can look beyond the makeup n tight suits to fall in love with the person. but for Minah it’s a little harder to imagine her then rookie nor her current diva self being so hung up on AK since they did not show why or how she came to love him. except AK does look kinda cool occassionally despite all that. so it is not so unbelievable for a young newbie actress to been impressed by his then powerful status. and i said he is kinda cool just occassionally bec i find AK rather scary when he sneers and looks condescendingly at others which he does quite often. having said all that i do agree style to a certain degree reflects who we are. he is totally not my style either ha ha

  121. 121 : Erin Says:

    Love this flippin’ drama, that’s all.

  122. 122 : KDaddict Says:

    Agreed! Definitely not my type, unless he washes that grease out of his hair, n heavy eyeliner fr his face, get rid of those awful suits! Hate to admit we do judge ppl by appearance, but his is rather extreme styling!
    Hi there. Long time no see. In Bad Family, KMM totally blended into his char. Totally. His char was so hapless, so harmless, that he hardly seemed like hero material. But that’s the point, isn’t it? Good job indeed.
    I know what Closer to Heaven is abt. It has such a sad n melo theme that I can’t bring myself to watch. Marrying a dying man she just met! Too much for my BP!

    I’m catching my flight for my vacation. So here’s an early greeting to you all:
    Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas n Happy NY!

  123. 123 : kdfan Says:

    @KDaddict i was mimicking korean way of saying ‘not my style’ instead of ‘not my type’. wonder why they use a diff term. Have a great vacation ya!

    And to all k drama friends here, wishing u Merry Xmas, happy holidays, and happy new year!

  124. 124 : jangerr Says:

    @ KDaddict

    Hi to you too! Yes, I’ve been busy the past couple of months. Fortunately I’ve more free time now so can do some catching up. Besides KoD, are there any other good dramas that I’ve missed?

    Wow! So you’re on vacation now! Have a great time and Merry Christmas to you too! 🙂

  125. 125 : hny Says:

    @kdfan..AK style is not my type too,look weird but his act attractive me 😀

    @KDaadict tq , I will watch it b4 new year !!… Merry Xmas n Happy NY!!enjoy your vacation dear,see u next year 😀

  126. 126 : kdfan Says:

    @hny haha he is not as good looking at siwon is it 😀 yes totally agree that KMM’s acting is so good he makes AK’s character so real. all the others act really well too. sometimes its a mystery why the rating is so low.

  127. 127 : dramamama Says:

  153. 153 : Simone46 Says:

    I’m so glad I overcame my reluctance to watch this drama!!! It is an excellent piece of work in acting, script and direction. Kim Myung Min, (whom I had not seen before since I’m a newbie at kdramas), is giving us, along with the other actors, sterling performances each week, even with the low ratings. Too bad, becuz this is a really good series. KMM’s acting takes my breath away. That deep voice… wow! I am glad the drama was extended by 2 add’tl episodes. But can you imagine living your life that way? I would have an ulcer the size of Texas. Being ruthless requires too much energy. I look forward to the continuing trials & successes of Anthony Kim and Co.

  154. 154 : JC Says:

    I love this drama. It’s brilliant how Anthony Kim overcome his problems one after another. His intelligence, wit, tenacity bowled me over! And Choi Siwon is hilariously funny! Gosh, it’s the first time I see him acting foolish! Ha ha ha…And writer Lee, I love her spirit in fighting for her script. Love this drama.

    The OST is beautiful too. Anyone can tell me the title and singer and where I can listen to it?

  155. 155 : dera Says:

    Don’t understand why the rating very low.
    It’s a very interesting drama !!!!!!!!!

    at first, i don’t pay any attention to this drama too, but after i’ve watched 1st episode, i totally hooked up ! this is awesome ! funny, and interesting.

    if you say you love watching drama, then you should watch this drama 😉

  156. 156 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hi @gina (#143)
    If you like Micky Park Yoochun, then you must watch I Miss You. He is absolutely brilliant and impressive in that show. The storyline is sad but the tragedies were all finely acted out and understandable. It is definitely not one of those melodramas where the leads are made unnecessary sad, for example due to evil mother-in-laws or scheming ex-girlfriends.

    Anyway, I like Kim Myung Min/Anthony Kim tremendously – he is so larger than life and and the acting is mesmerizing. A lot of time, I think the storyline of The King of Dramas no longer matters to me as I am just watching KMM.

  157. 157 : FoongPing Says:

    This is an awesome drama but why the low ratings?! What is stealing all the viewers’ attention? @[email protected] so angryyy!

  158. 158 : vodka Says:

    Nice drama…can’t wait for Kim to express his love to her

  159. 159 : Ahjussi2012 Says:

    Really enjoying this drama. Glad I was made to watch it. That scene after leaving the money lender’s home should definitely garner KMM an award of excellence. I was moved to tears. Anthony Kim does teach us that sometimes you have to fight low down & dirty to get what you what out of life, (if you have the guts to do it) and his character certainly does. Sometimes Perseverance is a must. I hope the remaining episodes are as outstanding. I lifted my arms and soared today. It was an amazing flight.

  160. 160 : putri Says:

    Korean peoples are weird..i just can’t understand why they don’t like this drama much as I do.? Is the plot too hard? Coz for me,KoD is a great drama.even there is no melo.the script,casts,story line,they are super daebak.anyone,who’s agree with me?

  161. 161 : kriss Says:

    @155 dera, 157 FoongPing & 160 putri – I’m with all of you! This drama is so good that the ratings just don’t seem to make any sense!!! I’m flabbergasted!!!

  162. 162 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hi @Ahjussi2012 #159

    I agree with you that memorable scene outside the moneylender’s house truly showed us that KMM is an actor par excellence. What about that scene where he stoically refused his staff’s offer of money and then ran into his room suppressing his tears. His facial contortions were short of acting magic.

  167. 167 : KDaddict Says:

    Oh no! They extend the show, n Anthony Kim is going BLIND! I hope they r being tongue-in-cheek about this. There r way too many shows that feature blindness. This show has been going strong as a spoof? a mirror? on the K-drama industry. I hope it doesn’t turn into a melo just becos there is an extension!

  168. 168 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hi KDaddict

    I find KoD pretty quirky and can accept a bit of silliness (i.e. AK’s blindness) in the plot since it is a comedy. This is not a laugh out loud comedy but I find myself laughing many times at Anthony and with Anthony. The scriptwriter has successfully created an iconic korean drama character in Anthony Kim – someone who is mean, obnoxious, manipulative, adversity prone yet tenacious, serious, capable, lonely, good looking (tight suit/eyeliner and all), not charming but lately romantic. I am not sure about other viewers but I like all the scenes where Anthony smiles, ever so lightly because he was protrayed as hard-nosed and rarely smiles, until the last few episodes.

  169. 169 : lisa Says:

    i am getting stress right now coz anthony going to blind..cant he deserve a happiness?poor anthony..his life was so stressfull from child and i hope KoD will have happy ending..i cant wait on 7th..

  170. 170 : kelly Says:

    i love this drama! i love this male actor!

  171. 171 : hny Says:

    to bad we need wait till next year to watch next eps…so for staf n crew KoD also all my friends wish you a nice new year, Bye 😀

  174. 174 : Yura Says:

    Love this drama & very interesting drama…….How can it be the last episode???

  175. 175 : unknown unknown Says:

    If the Scriptwriters know any better, they better not make this a bad ending for Anthony Kim! Many viewers will throw their remote controls at the TVs 🙂 It will be interesting to see how the writers can turn the plot around.

    KoD is one of the rare few comedies in recent times and I thoroughly enjoyed watching AK overcoming one obstacles after another and how he transformed from a cynical jerk to a charming romantic. I particularly like the scene where he tried to curry favor LGE’s mother – just a short scene but how endearing.

    Noticed how KoD is not as controversial as I Miss You and Cheongdamdong Alice when it comes to viewers’ sentiments. The comments there were robust, fiery and intense but all so interesting to read.

  176. 176 : fatum Says:

    I really like it so far. The actors are doing a magnificent job and the script is quite good.

  177. 177 : torri Says:

    i am so not happy with the writer making anthony going blind , come on men ! give the guy a break , he deserves to be happy too , well i guess i would just wait to see how the writer ends the last two ep

  178. 178 : tc Says:

    @torri – 177

    Same here. I have been enjoying this underrated drama until ep 16 when the blind plot comes up. This is why I hate extension – writer runs out of ideas and suddenly convert the genre into melo!

    All the while, this drama carries a positive undertone and shows how AK can successfully overcome one obstacle after obstacle . To end the show by turning AK blind will be hitting below the belt and I will feel cheated with such ending. Hope there will be a twist in last 2 episodes .

  179. 179 : stellar Says:

    Admins just a clarification. Jung Ryu Won won the said two awards above for salaryman and not shared with this drama.

    (@Kurayuzaki666 from admin: Please show some prove for us.

    Our prove are:-
    1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jung_Ryeo-won
    2. http://www.dramabeans.com/2012/12/2012-sbs-drama-awards/

    @admin Oh I see my bad.

  191. 191 : Kurayuzaki666 Says:

    But dramabeans stressed that SBS did not categorically labled her awards to either for salary man or king of dramas.

    Here’s what it says “I’m so glad for Jung Ryeo-won that she got an award, although I think I’d prefer it if the station distinguished which role she was being awarded for (Salaryman or King of Dramas). I know, she was great in both, but it feels more careless to just lump ‘em in together and say, “Eh it doesn’t matter which one as long as she gets one.”

    (@Kurayuzaki666 from admin: so, what you want us to do now? we already show you many prove.)

    Happy New Year all!!

    HI @ unknown unknown # 156 & # 175

    I’m not allowing myself to watch ep. 17 until the series is finished. I so DO NOT want to be disappointed with the ending. You have twice mentioned “I Miss You”, indicating how much you like it. I have been avoiding it, since the comments mentioned how sad it is. Can’t handle the melodrama, as I am just a big cry baby.

    With that said, can you just post Like/ Not Like if the ending Is not what we all were hoping for?? I’m counting on you. If its going to break my heart like “Iris”, I’ll skip it. Thanks.

    Hi @Ahjussi2012 #192

    Happy New Year!

    Noted – I will watch KoD’s episode 18 next week and quickly indicate “Like” or “Dislike” in this thread as a signal to you to watch the last two episodes or not. You take it from me :-). I understand how it feels – the worst thing than watching a bad drama is to watch a drama that started well/enjoyable and then have to deal with a terrible/lousy ending. It is really hard to overcome that annoyance. 🙂

    I apologise for gushing about I Miss You in this KoD thread. I am enjoying the camaraderie of the contributors on this website and just wanted to share what I felt was an exceptionally great drama (IMY) in a rather long time. If you have time, just scan through the comments in that thread and you will see how robust is the adulations accorded to this drama. However, I must say that this drama needs a lot of serendipity because most people will not even be able to watch past the first episode.

    please do not make KMM blind.

  197. 197 : hny Says:

    ahh this is what we call ..drama,sometimes we not like or agree if something bad happen to our main cast.. but what happen to anthony in KoD ,going blind n make him depressed makes me more n more like his character. so what the writer will make for the ending.. I think I’m gonna like it just like their Kiss 😀

  198. 198 : Reivo Says:

    Because Jung Ryu Won this drama all people know and interest, congrats for award…

  199. 199 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 17, 18–Finale:
    Soo disappointed w the last 2 eps of this drama. I thought it was the kind of drama to make fun of dramas that make their protagonist go blind, have near-death experiences, miraculous recoveries, Not one of them. But with the extension of eps came this whole shebang of cliches. It ruins its own wonderful run, to give a most dissatisfying finish. So glad it is over. Was getting impatient with it in the last 2 eps! Shame shame!

  200. 200 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hello hello @Ahjussi2012

    I just finished watching final episode 18. My verdict for the ending: Neither Like or Dislike. Much as I would like to be decisive, it is very hard in this instance. Basically, quite “Neutral” – I think you should go ahead to watch the last 2 episodes. You won’t be upset but I can’t say much without ruining it for you. 🙂

  201. 201 : Ahjussi2012 Says:

    Hey you! @unknown unknown

    I KNEW I could count on you. I will check it out & thanks for not spoiling it for me. I think I can handle neutral.

  202. 202 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hello Ahjussi2012

    I wanted to give you a sure signal about the ending, as promised. But it is too hard…I think you will understand what I mean after you have finished the entire last episode… 🙂

  203. 203 : hny Says:

    nice ending… bye2 KMM .. 😀

  204. 204 : kdfan Says:

    the last few episodes and the ending bored me .. what an anticlimax!

  205. 205 : dramamama Says:

    … although disappointing that AK did go blind in the end, at least he & LeeGoEun seems blissful, so i take it as … “and they live happily ever after”…..
    My opinion is; despite the not-so-ideal ending, it’s still a fabulous drama overall with brilliant actors and actresses! Thank you all for ur hardwork. I’ve had a very entertaining time watching The King Of Dramas!!!

  206. 206 : Ahjussi2012 Says:

    Hi @unknown unknown # 202

    Thanks for the heads up. Neutral?? I’m too annoyed to be neutral. Any future viewing recommendations??

    I’m only asking, “Why can’t a K-drama that’s a comedy, be a comedy w/o the melodrama??” Overall, I enjoyed this drama. The ensemble cast was one of the best I’ve seen in a K-drama. The writing was really good until the 13th epi. I think it should have ended at 16 epi. It sort of lost its momentum toward the end and they threw in the “kiss” to keep us hanging around for the last epi. (As if we would miss it.) The story line was similar to 2006’s ON AIR, but KOD was bolder and KMM brought along some strong “kick-ass” acting skills. The writing & direction became a bit lackadaisical toward the end; however, I would and will recommend this drama. It was very entertaining.

  207. 207 : Simone46 Says:

    I really liked this drama from the 1st episode. KMM really wore his clothes well, (so neat & dressed to the 9’s). I also admire his posture & acting very much. All cast members performed very well. I have practiced that “stare” but end up giggling every time. I hope this drama gets better ratings in “reruns”. It deserves a larger audience as it was very good.

  208. 208 : vodka Says:

    Where is the special episode?

  209. 209 : annonimous Says:

    where can I find to watch the special episode? What is the special episode about?

  210. 210 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hi @Ahjussi2012 #206
    I sort of knew that would be how you felt about the ending hence I could only signal “Neutral”. Overall, this is an excellent drama/story up until about episode 15. I liked very much the quirkiness, the uplifting way the story unfolded episode by episode, how Anthony Kim beat the various bad guys so ingeniously and easily. This was definitely supposed to be a quirky comedy with excellent acting by the casts especially KMM. Even at episode 18, he was acting so well and flawlessly.

    However, the producer/writer decided to go off track and made the last few episodes into a melodrama. Even with how the current ending of AK & LGE being together, it was still a melodrama although it was not a bad ending. Somehow, as an audience, I cannot punch the air and proclaim this a good comedy at the end…I just feel neutral. 🙂

  211. 211 : KDaddict Says:

    A really lousy lousy finish to a zany, funny series.

    He was destined to go blind. Wait, there’d be hope. Oh but, he missed that opportunity. No, he chose to miss that opportunity becos sth came up at work!
    So, he went blind as fate would have it. But he the woman he loves is by his side, just like in Winter Sonata, from 2001.
    Good job, good cast, but What is this? Are we still in 2001! Sooo disappointed. Boo.

  212. 212 : Simone46 Says:

    Hi Gang. What are we watching next???

  213. 213 : unknown unknown Says:

    Hi Hi @Simone46 #212

    Come and join us in the I Miss You thread, starting from Page 60. You don’t have to watch the drama but there is a “gang” discussion going on there 🙂 You would find it interesting…

  214. 214 : Ahjussi2012 Says:

    OK @ unknown unknown.


  215. 215 : kdrama freak Says:

    Thanks for not making him dead but blind nevertheless which is NOT an ideal ending. Overall the drama is quite entertaining, good acting from the cast especially from KMM and JRW. Typical old Kdrama ending, not ideal ending. Would like to see more of KMM drama.

  216. 216 : tc Says:

    Overall this drama is entertaining with tightly written and fast plot until the blind plot came up due to the extension I believe. I personally like it better than On Air and World Within which also depict the behind production scenes.

    However, I find the ending unsatisfactory when this drama has a such positive undertone from onset whilst in the case of Princess Man, I can accept the male lead’s blindness because it was supposed to be an epic Romeo n Juliet story but the hero did not die but just ended up blind with the heroine at his side.

    What an anticlimax! I am so pissed!

  217. 217 : K y Wong Says:

    What a waste of KMM’s talent. This is not the right drama for him, or I think this is a poorly written drama.
    The plot is so affected and contrived trying to force drama into a comedy or vise versa. It seems to drag on and on with an ending so fairy tale like that leaves a bad taste in the audience mouth.
    Please find a mature actress to play the mother role! She is so young with such smooth skin, that greying her hair and paling her lips simply did not make her look old. The scenes with KMM’S and his mother are awkward and yucky.
    Make one feels that all the cast members are ACTING.

  218. 218 : KDaddict Says:

    Forgot to say:
    Really really LOVE the char of Hyun Min in this drama. He is one of my fav chars in dramaland. He is so shallow, so childish, so silly, so petty, so vain. He has that idol singer girlfriend whose speaking voice is grating to the ear, who can’t finish a coherent sentence on her own. And yet Hyun Min is striving to be a good actor. It’s just funny, and warm.
    That’s what I ended up loving best in this drama. 😉

    The lead actor is ugly, thats why the rating was down down below haha… But his acting is berry good!!!

  229. 229 : True2u Says:

    “This comment might contain SPOILERS!!!!!!! “I LOVED THIS DRAMA!!!!!!!!! It’s beyond me how anyone can Call the Lead “UGLY?” HE’S DAMN GORGEOUS, AND HIS VOICE!!?!?!?!? *SWOONS* I fell for him so bad. My only problem was the last 2 episodes -_-, Seriously!!!!!!!! Ep1-16 was GOLD!!! I even consider it rivaling my #1 drama City Hall, but those last two episode………. just………. -_-……. um…….. T.T…………. All in all I give this drama a 8.5/10. Will Def, watch again. It was HILARIOUS!!! ^^ But those last two episodes!!! why did they extend it? It would have been PERFECT!!!! Time for me to go check out other dramas the Lead male stared in. See you guys later

  230. 230 : limitzi Says:

  231. 231 : mahvish Says:

    such a GREAT drama and such sucking ratings???? WHY???!!!
    geez, people ought to judge better -_-
    from characters to story, from cast to their chemistry, from heart wrenching emotions to comedy, everything was SO good! i thoroughly ENJOYED the drama!
    i’ve been a fan of both the lead actor and actress’ previous works and they earned more of my respect this time around!
    in fact, for the FIRST time, i not only liked Choi Si Won’s acting, i LOVED the way he delivered his comical nonsencial top-star character! SUPER LOVABLE!!! he spread smiles in otherwise “serious” scenes 😀
    the ending… as everyone, i also thought it could be better BUT i’m fine with it anyway 🙂
    once again, WHY PEOPLE WHY? why the LOW ratings???? how misleading…such a GOOD drama and… -_-

    most under rated drama. don’t understand why so low rating. recommended watch. KMM is so good.

  235. 235 : tigerb Says:

    It’s a shame that this series had very low ratings when in fact it is a very good drama. Was it because of the timing of initial broadcast? I watched this because it was suggested that it depicts similar situations of actual s. Korean drama production. I saw ‘On Air’ too months before, that gave me headaches. But this series was enjoyable to watch. Although it shows the problems encountered from the start to the end of drama production and the ugly things of the industry, it dwells on the life of one person considered ‘king’ and how he resolves problems and hurdles to the success of his dramas. The leading actor was very good, arrogant in this role like he was in ‘Beethoven Virus’, but here he has more heart, towards the end – accepting his self-imposed denials to forget his past, thus making him a changed man. I found funny the scenes of the drama leading actor who was childish, stupidly self-centered, self- promoting, so insecure, clashing with the drama leading actress most of the time. It was a very good watch.
    Question: did the scenes in this drama and in ‘on air’ really depict similar incidents s. korea drama production. I can understand competition and stepping on peoples’ toes, etc., but do bodily harm? Or was that collateral damage?

  236. 236 : Helen from russia) Says:

    the main character was sooo cooool!)))I just fell in love with him!!))))and the drama was very good too!I cried so much!((()))Oh!!I am really deep impressed!!!!)))

    I really love this drama. Nice story about competition in entertainment business. I love the lead actor in this drama. He’s so charismatic and charming. I love to see a cold blooded man – I think that’s my type LOL I think this drama deserves higher rating. I recommend this drama for all of you who haven’t watch it yet. Nice drama!!

  239. 239 : krystal Says:

    And Anthony Kim deep voice and sharp eyes.. ahh love it!!

  240. 240 : CoolBeans Says:

    Anthony Kim should rule the world with SiWon as Vice Emperor! This drama deserves higher ratings. Great acting and a look at the ‘just in time’ writing and production processes of Korea dramas!
