My Comment :
I have this drama actually since last year but I was lazy to give it a go because the story line did not really interest me. I just finished watched it recently and it’s like what I guess, the storyline is a bit slow but the chemistry between Kim Hyun Joo and Go Soo is good. The OSTs are good as well.
The drama is purely love story and these are further information for the synopsis.
Young Hoo was a nice and good looking guy but unfortunately he was poor and slow thinking. His good look was also the reason that made Eun Young had a crush on him, back to their school times, and even wrote him a love letter but then, she lost the feeling after knowing the fact that he was not a bright student. Young Hoo never knew that Eun Young looked down upon his ability.For him, she was the first love that he always remembered.
Years later, Eun Young and Young Hoo coincidentally met again. The meeting rekindled Young Hoo’s feeling to Eun Young while Eun Young tried to avoid him. Young Hoo was heartbroken when he accidentally heard Eun Young’s humiliating comment on him.
When he had a chance to participate in a Joe Millionaire-like reality TV show, he planned to use the opportunity to win Eun Young’s love through it. He did it partly because it was the suggestion of the PD of the show,Yoo Jin Ha. Less that he knew that PD Yoo was making use of them for the show. He was interested in Young Hoo and Eun Young after accidentally knew about their relation. The people behind the show made up a story that Young Hoo was a heir of a rich family. Even Eun Young was made to believe it. Through the show, PD Yoo seemed like wanted to see if Eun Young was a real material girl. Would she turned to Young Hoo again when he knew that he was a millionaire? Or Was true love exist between them?
For some time, Eun Young was really drawn to Young Hoo until she knew the fact. Her feeling to Young Hoo kept on changing between love him or love him not whereas Young Hoo stayed the same, except that he was now decide to use his own way to express his love.
Slowly but sure, Young Hoo’s sincerity and true love moved Eun Young. But it was a bit late when she realized her own feeling. It was as if she had her own karma for what she did to Young Hoo before. She had to go through the rough path to win Young Hoo back and made him believe that she truly loved him.
