geraldine i love this story full of funny scenes and superromamtic.Lee min ho your the best

Aarthy i love lee min ho............... super love story this i love this romedy

kyomuhendo I love this story... Park Gae-in and Jeon Jin Ho

JapKorFan I really like this show. I've binge-watched it for at least 2 times already. LOL. The casting was good - I think they all fit to their roles, especially Lee Min Ho whom I really see as some guy who looks like he could be gay. No offense Minhotics. However, I can't really merit the show for best acting since there were a few parts in the show that seemed so awkward in my opinion - one of which was the scene where Jin-Ho was forcing Gae-in to go away and then suddenly he pulls her back; dang, that what was an awful scene. Generally, I'd give it am 8 in 10.

hibat Its pretty good

clara Pls I wan to start watching korean drama but I like the matured ones like secret garden or city hunter or secret love. Please send me movie names that I can watch. Meanwhile I like this one but not too much.

grace oyeronke I like the drama,especially the story line.The cast too were wonderful especially jin ho and gae in.In my own rating this drama makes more sense than the celebrated "the heirs".

AJ One of the best KDrama romantic comedies (despite the tiresome evil 2nd lead cliche) where the writing is snappy; the adorable leads are pitch perfect, and their chemistry is a delight.

sha it's awesome

suriji The female lead should have watched Haruka Ayase in Hotaru. Now that's a drama where the female lead was able to portray an immature slob yet very adorable.

dramaviewer This drama is horrible. The girl is untolerable, annoying and stupid. She is supposedly 27 but acts not like 16 but like she is 10! And she is a slob! When Lee Min Ho gave her the "game over" kiss you would thing that their relationship would move forward but it shuts down from there. She won't even let him into her house any more and she supposedly loves him! How lame is that? And why do Koreans do that in their dramas? They have like 10 episodes where the guy and the girl long for each other and then the kiss happens somewhere in epiosde 11 and then everything goes back to square one. Stupid. Don't they want to kiss more? Or at least hold hands? It's just plain dumb. The only great Korean drama I've seen so far was Secret garden and for a start the girl did not act like she was 10 yrs old.

RE I love and watch many times ... <3 I hope see lee min ho and son ye jin together again <3 they so perfect together <3

oyin help guys!!! I don't understand Korean. What happened on episode 14 and 15?

pete I love and watch many times. It is very funny and emotional. I loved Park Gae-In because she is very honest.

Man likes a honest woman and normal looking more than very smart and beauty.

Adey girl I really love this drama

Mimi Wow this is one of my favorite..loved every part of it

ki min park love this one... but i really didn't watch it yet.. hahaha i am looking forward to buy a copy.. of course, because of lee min ho oppa

yetty Very interesting and captivating movie, luv u Lee min ho

Sue Love this series, but clearly based on 1999 movie called Three to Tango.with Mathew Perry who plays an architect who pretends to be gay while designing a cultural center who moves in with a woman. ver funny cut movie

WUTTTTTT Exactly 44:56 episode 11 Kim Nam Gil(main guy in the drama, Bad Guy) is in the shot, right between the 2 girls having a coffee. that cameo was wicked cool lol

Hanin Guys guys guys.. for all of those who are saying its Dostana.. its not.. all indian movies are based on Asian or Hollywood movies so chill

chhavi @angela...yup i have also watched the movie dostana but this drama story is way much better than dostana story...

angela THIS IS DOSTANA! Well the same plot line except two guys in the Bollywood movie pretend to be gay to move into the apartment and fight for the girl. ANYWAY, sounds really good and will watch it when i get the chance swamped in dramas right now

michelle Am not seeing my comment, hope it's getting to u guys.

michelle I don't know How u guys do this but it's really d best.

michelle this movie personal taste is superb,I don't really watch seasonal movies that much bcos I dnt have d time too,but since I started this one I have been glued to my tv set,u guys r doing a Great job and Am loving it.

anandaRamartha Late about 2 years, I just finish watched it now :p.. I never thought this series has touched my heart enormously. Can't get enough to see Jeon Jin Ho everyday. Son Hye Jin n Lee Min Ho really make great couple here. The chemistry is real, and the role performed perfectly by both. One of the best korean drama ever. I don't care if in Korea it was not a big hit, but for me it is. Hope to see those two couple in another project together. Luv

seaway What a drama series this was. Son Ye-Jin's portrayal of Gae In was amazing to say the least.

Asian Korean Drama Aficionado This kept me laughing my heart out at the beginning but balances it off well with such a romantic plot.

fateme the best thing about this drama was yoon eun hye and lee min ho ! they make amazing couple

sauyin zhi Super great show. I love Son Ye Jin. Her performance is flawless. Lee Man Ho is handsome but he need to work on his acting skills a bit more. Over all, Lee's performance is better than I expected though. I real match of Lee and Son. I wish they will be casted in the same drama in the future.
