    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!

    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.

    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!!!!

    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!

    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.

    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 🙂

    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!…

    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!

  11. 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 🙂

    @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

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

  15. 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.

    It’s on Gooddrama.net
    Happy viewing!

    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!

    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

    Erin Says:

    Love this flippin’ drama, that’s all.

  22. 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!

  23. 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!

  24. 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! 🙂

  26. 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.

    @hny i think the one without eyeliner was when he was a young man. AK the older n mean man never leaves home without eye makeup n probably sleeps with it!
