I chose "Plot synopsis" because good looking actors/actresses don't guarantee good story. I'd rather watch something that's enjoyable or at least "bearable". The next important factor would be the genre. I am a sucker for romantic comedy, something light.

My age group is 26-35 and gender is female.

DBY is so much better than MG! Technically, they are 2 different plots, but casting, acting skill and production value wise, this one definitely beats MG hands down. You can watch ep. 2 first I guess, but you might have to guess to explain few things. This series is definitely worth your time!
