Rijouku woooow~ Osum I love this drama now I'm going to watch I need romance 2 >.< and the 3 xDD

asd Great characters but I hated the main lead because she was so naive. Guy cheated twice and she still loves him and forgives him? I just don't get it. And they had no chemistry at all.

Tim My first time seeing Jo Yoo-jeong in anything, but it certainly won't be my last! She is delightful on screen and about as perfect as any person has a right to be. Wow!!!

Beaz Loved the show up until the last episode. Horrible ending! Also couldn't stand the female lead. So stupid and annoying.

bita i see this movie last year and it was very good

Ahoo no any other series can catch the place of the first series of i need romance, it was the best an so thaouthful

Pada Im currently watching this movie right now... I'm enjoying a lot! Its really good so far... There some things they could change but so far everything is great!

Cateva BEST romance drama! Great cast, great acting, great script, great story. MUST watch if you are into romance genre. I am surprised that it didn't have hiigher rating. 5 out of 5 rating.

Ronaldo I definitely say that I enjoy watching this drama. It meet my expectation about the ending which make the story worthy particularly the realization and reconciliation of ex-lover. real great!!!

Dianne I wanted to watch this Drama mainly to see Choi Jin-Hyuk who played Wol Ryung in "Gu Family Book". I loved his performance in "Gu", as much as I loved his performance in this drama!! I must be the only person in Korea who had never heard of him, but now I see that is changing!! He is such a special actor with God-given talents... I wish him well in all he does!! A new fan from Alabama in the USA.

Hwa Most of the episodes were really cool and funny but the ending was just lame! I wanted In young to end up with Bae Sung-Hyun ;/ and why didn't that hot photographer end up with Park Seo-Yeon?? they looked pretty cool together r..r anyways I enjoyed this drama pretty much

Mai I love this drama the story is wonderful but the end is bad... No one likes the ending.

chendy y. listianti I love the story.. It just dislike the ending very much.. I wasn't sleep for watch this movie.., but i dissapointed for the ending.. Totally dislike!!

lilyace i so love the story but like the others, i felt sad with the ending.. I so wanted it to be Mr. Lightweight--Bae Sung-Hyun (Choi Jin-Hyeok) and Sun Woo In Young (Jo Yeo-Jeong) .

Anyway, GREAT Korean Drama indeed!!

Deby Irawan I really love this k.drama. I'am a learning photographer. I love when they took a picture of the drama in photograph look. I learn very much from here. Really nice and awesome story.

Poleng naaaa I sooo love this Korean series at tvN :3 though I haven't watched it from its very beginning I really love its message and the lines ftw!! The actors are suitable for their role, plus points that I can't help myself to crave watching it..

rainfairy im crazy about this drama.i cant get enough of it.since i stated it im watching it on and on and at the same time that i want to know the end i dont want it to finish.their style is 100%different from k.dramas.i love all k.dramas but i wish them to be different like this.i cant wait for the i need romance2.the story is soooo realistic i mean of course all the girls wish for a guy who loves them for good but reality is another thing.i like the friendship between the girls in this drama and how they share their feelings is so refreshing. tnx tvn i always watched kbs sbs or mbc dramas its my first time to watch one of tvn dramas.im a fan now.good job

Diamond This is definitely one of my favorite kdramas! :') It's also very funny and easy to watch. Highly recommended... I love Kim Jeong Hoon and the cast had great chemistry with one another. The ending was awesome! There was a lot of emotions and the part were Sung Soo was talking to In Young's dad made me tear up. You should definitely watch this drama! ^^

angel this's an amazing drama. it's really exiting, hilarious, realistic and gorgeous... At the end i saw something as 'we need romance 2012' i hope there really will be a second season. Pleaseeee make it. by the way, i wanna thank the casting director. really good job. they have the perfect chemistry.

meg Super funny and easy to watch. Highly recommended when you are tired of all those emotional dramas!
