    I never watch korean drama about single mother in love that i really like so it’s new thing for me

  6. 6 : xxxzxxx Says:

    The poster also indicates we have to deal with a cheating housewife – it seems like that is the trend nowadays in korea…

  7. 7 : eny Says:

    base on the poster i,it seems like kim sung soo alone, only holding on the lady beside her

  8. 8 : eny Says:

    i really wait for this drama, because of one article said that kim sung soo will act as the greatest lover , so curious
    I like UTW n Choi Jung yoon too,really impatient………

    I have finished watching episode 1 at Taiwan website, it’s interesting to watch Eugene as a different role. The interesting scene was when Eugene drunk and went to Oh Kyung Soo’s car and mistaken him as Taxi driver.

    I will continue to watch this drama to find out the life of these three women. And what happened to Eugene’s romance ? Is it possible for her to once again meet the right man to love her ?

  15. 15 : Amanda Says:

    Wow! This series special cater for in conjunction of celebration “Chinese New Year” falls on end of Jan 2014! I think their costume wearing “RED & WHITE” mostly its great color during this festive season! Anyway, we shall watch this series & see how’s the comments goes.

  16. 16 : Grace Says:

    I’m loving it 🙂

  17. 17 : Shosh Says:

    Are you saying that Paid channel viewers do not know who to appreciate Korean Dramas? or you think that this is not the kind of drama for affluent society?

  18. 18 : eny Says:

    so far i like this drama

  19. 19 : Micc Says:

    I really want to like this drama as the casts look wonderful. I thought this is going to be a romantic comedy, but after two episodes, so many melo, sad moments I can’t bear to watch. Hope it gets lighter going forward.

  20. 20 : Jyenie Says:

    I likehow Kyung Soo teases Jung Wan all the time and also how Jung Wan’s blurred mom always misleads her 🙂

  21. 21 : meiji Says:

    Episode 4 Rating (AGB Nielsen) 2.500% Nationwide

  22. 22 : eny Says:

    @jyenie
    i like it too, it’s funny
    so many mystery in Jihyun life, thats make me curious n wanna see the next episode

  23. 23 : Suzan Says:

    I very much enjoyed this drama so far.
    It might not have all the ‘young and hot’ stars but the acting and storyline so far are very good.

    Eugene is such a laugh whenever she is drunk and her mum is always giving the wrong advice. Her son is the only ‘sane’ person in their household so far.
    Although she has so much problem, she still has a loving mum and son besides her.

    Jihyun has a pretentious and miserable life. Looks good on the outside but terribly miserable on the inside. Horrible mother-in-law. Daughter going through rebellious stage so not easy.

    Sunmi has a lonely life and is still searching desperately for love even though there is 1 right in front of her. Who cares if he is younger as long as he loves you and has good character.

  24. 24 : PandaMuse Says:

    this drama is really REALLY INTERESTING and will watch till the end!! i understand why the rating is low it’s bcos of other competitors.. personally, this is my first drama in this network since i like sbs.. but seriously.. I RECOMMEND this drama! so so interesting!! i hope it will get more interesting 🙂 and the CAST! wootwooo!! i personally LOVE THEM!! esp these 3 people Eugene Kim, Uhm Tae Woong, Kim Sung Soo..what a COMBO!! <3 <3

  25. 25 : Jyenie Says:

    Just watched ep5, it’s so interesting! Can’t wait to watch the next ep!
    Everything has become cleared for Jihyun and Do Young. Jihyun’s niece is definitely a surprise as I didn’t see it coming.
    Wow, Kyung Soo is falling for Jung Wan but she is too coward to reciprocate!? She is not ready, she needs time 🙂

  26. 26 : Grace Says:

    This drama is really wonderful. All the actors are really good. Excited for episodes 5 & 6. Becoming increasingly interesting as the story progresses. Love it <3

  27. 27 : adriana Says:

    Im loving this drama!!!! Eugene e Tae Woong are great together, and their characters are so wonderfull!!!! I hope it progresses this great!!!!

  28. 28 : Shosh Says:

    I don’t know who chose the name for this drama. The name is the reason for the low rating. The story and the actors are very good and I enjoy watching it.

  29. 29 : chocolatelover Says:

    Love this series right away from the first episode! It has everything you want from a drama; nice flow, good narrative and dialogues, good actors and actresses and beautiful camera technique!

  30. 30 : TC Says:

  35. 35 : Nudge Says:

    They billed this as a sitcom but the only show of humour comes from Tae Woong’s character who is naturally witty. The drama itself isn’t funny. But I like it.

    I fail to see the funny in Jung Wan’s struggle, working two jobs to support her son and mother, barely holding it together. Attempts at funny, like her getting into a car thinking its a taxi, was dampened by what was happening in her life. If anything the scene was a fortuitous early encounter for our main characters.

    Then there’s Ji Hyun. It isn’t easy to fathom the depth of her pain, especially after learning of how her own family betrayed her for money. Yea, the father traded the daughter’s happiness for a few bucks. The two lover’s families tore their relationship apart with such savagery its painful to dwell on. None of it is funny.

    There’s a definite disconnect between the marketing department and the creators of this drama. Just look again at the promo poster after watching six episodes. You might, like me, find yourself in a rolling your eyes moment. 🙂

  36. 36 : eny Says:

    i really like the scene when JH n her daughter meet DY in ep 8, their daughter is really interesting girl she’s calm n straight

  37. 37 : Nudge Says:

    “sitcom” apolies. Its billed as a “rom-com”

  38. 38 : Micc Says:

    I feel like slapping the daughter bad! What’s her problem?? She didn’t do one thing right and she acted like that? And what’s the problem with the mom? Why is she being bossed around by her own daughter?? Then of course, she did nothing right either. Hiding the daughter she had with her ex-boyfriend, and pretending to be naive to marry a rich man. What goes around, comes around!

  39. 39 : imhel Says:

    I like this drama. I just hope that Jung Wan (Eugene’s character) will not be swayed by her friend Sun Mi’s nagging to the point of harrassing for her to give up the director.

    She should stand firm on her desire to continue her relationship with the director

  40. 40 : cassandra Says:

    Overall it is a good drama. The chemistry between the 2 leads Jung Wan and Director is good. I like the Eugene’s son..such a sweet kid.

  41. 41 : linda Says:

    it is worth watching, not boring at all.

  42. 42 : Micc Says:

    Did Sun Mi really sleep with the director? I was under the impression she was faking, but now pregnant?! Is that a lie too?

  43. 43 : Lucy Applestone Says:

    Hate all three women. I find all of them lacking. The married one is the most stupid. I getad every time this woman does anything, she is that dumb.

  44. 44 : Lucy Applestone Says:

    Cannot stand Sun Mi, she is so deluded I could slap her. She should look on the mirror. There is nothing attractive about that woman and she isn’t even attractive.

  45. 45 : Lucy Applestone Says:

    Watching episode 8. I thought I disliked Sumni but now I hate her! She is the most selfish manipulative bitch! She has never had to struggle, she uses people but most of all.. She is ugly outside and inside. So selfish to want to have a man who has rejected her! And take him away from her friend. I hope he just keeps rejecting and rejecting her until the woman gets it that she has done the same to the young guy! Hate her!!!!

  46. 46 : imhel Says:

    HERE WE GO AGAIN. HERE’S ANOTHER RIDICULOUS STORY UNFOLDING. I DON’T KNOW WHY EUGENE KEEPS GETTING THESE CHARACTERS/ROLES WHERE SHE PLAYS A PATHETIC GIRL NOT KNOWING HOW TO STAND FOR HERSELF. SHE GETS BULLIED BY SUN MI & SHE EASILY GIVES UP HER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE DIRECTOR JUST BECAUSE SUN MI SAYS SHE’S PREGNANT WITH THE DIRECTOR’S CHILD.
    IT’S JUST LIKE HER ROLE IN 100-YR INHERITANCE WHERE SHE GOT BULLIED BY HER MOM-IN-LAW
    I HATE THE ROLES SHE PLAY LATELY.
    CAN’T SHE FOR ONCE PLAY A STRONG-WILLED WOMAN.
    I HOPE THE STORY CHANGES IN EP 14 OTHERWISE I’M DROPPING THIS DRAMA FROM MY LIST.

  47. 47 : imhel Says:

    THAT SUNMI IS THE EPITOME OF A CUNNING WOMAN. I HATE HER TO THE FULLEST. SHE’S VERY CALCULATIVE.

  48. 48 : Maddie Says:

    She didn’t care to protect him from the agony of not knowing what he supposedly had done wrong. She could have told the truth and let the dice fall where it may. But she didn’t, she just abandoned him out there, and for some twisted reason he see it as a righteous thing. How that part of the story played out makes little sense to me.

  49. 49 : Dani Says:

    WTF? Pregnant my a**! SUN MI went to the doctor in the beginning of this drama and was told she is in menopause. She is such a b*tch!!!!!

  50. 50 : Micc Says:

    @imhel-46

    I completely agreed with you! Don’t know why Eugene is getting these kind of roles lately. So different from her roles before and honestly, she doesn’t look like a timid girl, she looks totally feisty! I like her in Wonderful life, Save the Last Dance, I Really Really Like You etc. so much better!

  51. 51 : Micc Says:

    Wow, nice guest star!

  52. 52 : Micc Says:

    Capitalized on YWCFTS! Hahaha!

  53. 53 : Micc Says:

    I knew it! I knew they didn’t sleep together! Good for her telling the truth!

  54. 54 : LINDA 28 Says:

    I LOVE THIS DRAMA,ALL COUPLES ,  Jun Joon Hyuk RELATIONSHIP WITH MOMS  BOYFRIEND SO CUTE , Uhm Tae Woong SO ROMANTIC Kim Hye Ok IS FUNNY

  55. 55 : Maddie Says:

    The father and son did really trade Ji Hyun for their means of livelihood, the shop. While the father sympathised with Ji Hyun when hearing of her mistreatment by her MIL, as soon as she asked they return the shop, both wouldn’t hear of it. Placing all the blame on Ji Hyun for the difficulties in her marriage.

    Way to go guys. You low-life cowards.

  56. 56 : Micc Says:

    I had such high hopes for this drama but it turns out to be just mediocre. Very sad because it wasted such great actors and actresses.

  57. 57 : Maddie Says:

    I was disappointed at how Ji Hyun’s situation resolved in a way. I can see why she chose to remain with her abusive husband, but I don’t see how she can ever be trusting towards him. He abandoned her, abused her and allowed his own mother to plot and scheme against her. No-one in their right mind would ever trust, let alone love their abuser.

    I do commend the decision to keep the family intact and for the adults to take the necessary sacrifices in order to protect the children.

    Overall, the drama was enjoyable.

  58. 58 : khunsaul Says:

    This is nice drama with happy ending. I want to see An Do Young happy with his daughter in the end.

  59. 59 : urm Says:

    director very nice person..why introduction says his director who he is known as a bad tempered and self conceited. ? not at all..very nice and caring person..yeah i like it.

  60. 60 : Shellsbells Says:

    This was entertaining a bit slow not much to really write home about but I watched it.
