Except for us I don't think anyone watched that, but since the thread is here, I'm gonna write. I loved this drama, all storylines, all characters, better or less executed. And the writer Lee, kekeke...

One more thing, Choi Hyun Woo who plays the magician is a real magician (wtf??), I mean he really is an illusionist in real life too. I was watching some show about magic tricks "magic sth" and he appeared.

This drama is so underrated,this why I created this thread, hopefully more peolpe get to know about it, it may be boring for some and not their cup of tea, but this drama,for me is like a fresh, you just watch it, enjoy it, with no frustration,no pulling hair ,hate for some characters.
The ending was the best ending in my opinion, I wasn't disappointed, actually I was hoping that it will ends that way.
So the magician is a maician? Cool!

@Issy,yah,give it a try, when you need some fresh drama !

Issy, the first episode was a bit awkward but it gets better later on. I'm quite sure you will like it, if you liked I Need Romance. ^^

Quality isn't amazing but I like the plot and characters. At first I didn't like the main actress but I think her acting got better after a few episodes and I got more into her character. In some way she actually reminds me of a friend of mine... :mrgreen:

I still have a few episodes to enjoy.

What kind of drama is this? Is it a k-version of Sex in the City or is it a common kdrama, where the whole thing is more innocent and the female lead comes to "true love" in the end?

Of course I liked INR! but minus the ending obviously :cussing:
Have to admit that I did not like the main actress too and more or less she was the reason for me to leave it for later
but now that E-chan, sham and you Viande are praising it, I might as well fit it between my current dramas I am watching.

And btw. if anyone finds the song from the opening - let me know. It's so cute.
And what's the best part in this drama it's Miru and Jino breaking reason - a misunderstanding. They split not because he cheated on her, she cheated on him etc. but because of a stupid misunderstanding. And it turned out - impossible to go back to where things were before.

Unlike in some other *cough*INR*cough* dramas where stupid lady ditches guy who loves her just to go back to her cheating ex.

Reading your comment about"Hot men",I thought that you already watched the drama!
So you have first :a cable drama so less restrictions, second: the title, yeah because for so many, especially men dating/sleeping that amount of guys makes a slut not an innocent girl, third: writing about that...It's more like geting over your "true" love and discovering new things, I guess,I don't know how this drama will be viewed from a man's angle though...

Yeah, I also tried to find it but nope..

Just finished this and I must say I was more than satisfied to the ending. This series is a true gem! :cheers: I take back my words about the quality. Excluding the first one or two episodes, this is a quality series.

and I want this as my ava or someting but can't really because it would be kind of spoiler:

Exactly! I think that writer Lee's line pretty much summed up this series. It introduced us several kinds of love proudly without shame.

and writer Lee indeed... :wub: Although, I really liked the dancer boy too. So many different men. ^^

Writer Lee is a really unique character in whole k-drama sphere so far. I liked also Hyun Woo, poor kid stuck with a love for veeery free woman^^
As for the dancer kid, he's from Supernova group in real life too, kkk. Unless we're talking about someone else.

Oh, he is? I didn't find any info about him so I thought he was just some new actor (or real background dancer). No wonder. ^^

Yeah, Tanya's kiddo was cute too. Wasn't he called Kwan Woo? Seems that Drama Wiki doesn't have him listed in the cast.

Oh wait... they're both in Supernova?? Kwangsoo and Sungje. :lol

Yeah, my bad, I didn't remember clearly. Oh, so they're both in it? :unsure: Somehow this group was always so irrelevant in my eyes...

@neomonolith: you can watch it fully subbed at dramacrazy.

@Ethlenn, yep, apparently. I have heard that group name before but as there are so many kpop groups, can't really keep up with them all.

Seems that Sungje has been a male lead in a Japanese movie called Kimi ni Love Song wo.

Especially Writer Lee final lines, I died :faint:
The dancer was so lovely, his story was so cute and I believe he will come back when he's 30,yes the guy really keeps his promesses.(can we have a second season? I didn't get enough of this drama :alcoholic: )
Even the Leo guy was something new in kdramaland, we don't see that often!
Glad you ladies liked ,as much as I did, the ending! :wub:

Like i said somewhere before, my hot men comment was born out of the moment, without much thought.

But back to the drama.
In the original the female lead has a bet with a friend, that she can have one-night-stands with 12 different men without emotional involvement. Well, my question was just to look, if the drama was koreonized and the one-night-stands became just dates without intimacy.

Happy there are more people to spazz about this drama.
I'd like to see the second season too, but if they do that:
1. it won't be based on the book
2. it may turn out repetitive.

When I started this drama when it was airing, I was a bit afraid about the ending, because of the poster. JO is holding an umbrella over Miru so I thought "oh no, protective guy and she will end up with him yet again, like in INR". Turned out, I was wrong and they didn't make his character a total jerk either so we can hate him easier.

Plus, Tanya's character...

what's viki?? and yes I can stream. but I want a copy of the subs for myself. it took for ever for me to find it but the subs were missing. I don't mind watching online but I hate all the little hops you have to go threw and when they split it up into 10min pieces just drives me nuts! if you tell me where to watch it I will check it out. Ethlenn suggested Dramacrazy ( i think that was it)
