My Comment :
I actually do not really like this drama. I feel that the story is very slow paced. Ji Hyun Woo and Lee Sun Gyun are the reason I continue to watch it.
Although Tae Oh was sincerely love Eun Soo but seeing how their age gap affected the way Eun Soo treated Tae Oh made me couldn’t wait to see them broke up.
I prefer Eun Soo with Young Soo. At first glance, Young Soo might be a kind of boring and very serious person but as the story flows, we can see the other side of him. There is something about this character that made me favour him more than Tae Oh. It might be because of his maturity in response things, his calmness, and because he was played by Lee Sun Gyun.
In addition, beside the story of the three main lead characters, there are also story about Eun Soo’s friendship with her three best friends, Yoo Hee, Jane and Yoo Joon and their love story.
