Joo Won, Shim Eun Kyung, Go Kyung Po, Park Bo Gum, Bae Min Jung
Drama Rating: 7/10 Neck Score: B
This was actually a very well done drama, but I always got so angry at it that I'd have to force myself to watch it every week, until I realized that I was relating too much to Joo Won's character Cha Yoo Jin. It was like seeing myself (in a highly dramatized and exaggerated form) back in high school or early college years. I would just get so pissed at everyone who messed with him that it was hard to watch. I found myself getting so freaking annoyed at that adorable other guy that I couldn't stand him. I wanted to like him as a person, but he kept just making me angry. Sigh. That's what I get for going through a grumpy cat type phase just like Yoo Jin, with the whole not expressing feelings, not liking skinship, thinking everyone is an idiot, not wanting to get close to people... I never had a traumatic past or a bad relationship with my father though (my dad is pretty cool). Anyways, once I figured out that I was able to appreciate it to the fullest. There are so many good characters, and everyone acted all the parts so well. With Nae Il's character being so quirky and childlike, there was a big danger of her being annoying, but Shim Eun Kyung did a great job of keeping her cute, funny, and realistic. Also I might be in love with Go Kyung Po even more now. That guy is adorable and has a great neck. Worst part about this show was actually all those flippin' turtlenecks that Joo Won kept wearing. WHY!!!!!! Other than that there were a lot of cute clothings. And huge props to their classical music soundtrack. They very cleverly used a lot of really good pieces that enhanced the show. That might have been the very best part of the show. So much good music. If you know and love classical music this show will be a lot better and more meaningful. If you don't, then it will just be average I guess.
