Genre: Romantic Comedy, CEO with troubles past.

Why did I press play? It was a hot new drama and I wanted to jump on the bandwagon.

Thoughts: Episodes 1 – 4 episodes contained many funny scenes – in fact my stomach hurt from laughing. Mainly the parents and the Bong Se Ra – cue the hilarious grab dance. The story line is fresh and original (mostly).  Sadly after that, all the clichés starting rolling in and with that boredom. Many people love it, so it’s worth checking out.

The bad: The family feud between the brothers – annoying and nothing new.

Who are the main characters?
Kim Mi So played by Park Min Young
Lee Yeong Joon played by Park Seo Joon
Lee Sung Yeon payed by Lee Tae Hwan
Kim Ji Ah played by Pyo Ye Jin
Bong Se Ra played by Hwang Bo Ra (hilarious co-worker)

Theme: It’s hard work to pursue your dreams. Love it best, when someone loves you for you. 

What it’s good for? Something humorous albeit a little boring, but ticks all the warm and fuzzy boxes.

Interesting Facts: The writing for this drama is the same as “Touch Your Heart”, “Because this is my first time” & the “Let’s Eat” series. Familiar Wife”, ”
