Soo Ae, Kim Young Kwang, Lee Soo Hyuk, Jo Bo Ah, Kim Ji Hoon
Drama Rating: 6/10 Neck Score: A+
I was a little disappointed that this turned out to be more of a melodrama than a comedy. They had made it look so funny, and sometimes it was, but then they couldn't get past the tragic loves part as they were in love but had a stepfather/daughter relationship legally. This seems even more pathetic when everything is eventually solved with no headache and why didn't they just do that in the first place? I did like most of the characters, although I have to like the side characters more than the main couple. The three little dumpling ducklings, so cute. The little sister of the 2nd male lead, hilarious. The 2nd female lead, the most likable bitca ever. She was thoroughly an evil man stealing jerk, but I loved her and totally shipped her with the reluctant neighborhood friend lawyer 2nd male lead. I think I probably said "he's so flipping hot" every time Lee Soo Hyuk was on screen. His attitude was also super fun, as he was so matter-of-fact and lazy. I loved the developing relationship between him and his crazy stalker little sister. I also love how the siblings names were Duk Bong and Duk Shim. I did love Soo Ae and Kim Young Kwang too. I liked how ridiculously their relationship grew, fighting and being "family" then finally getting to be a couple, they were just also all melodramatic at times. really, the worst part is that everything was so dramatic, with his gangster past, and trying to protect the mother's land, and then it all gets solved so quickly. I guess the gangster part didn't, but once the second male lead decided to not be selfish any more then everything was magically solved. It was lamely amazing. Why didn't they just all work together in the first place? Huh? Haha, so not the best, but it was still enjoyable enough, plus lots of hot men and strong women, so win?
