I admit. I wanted to watch this drama because of Kim Bum… but that wasn’t the only reason! I’ve heard here and there that this drama was actually quite good despite the mediocre ratings. I decided to jump into this drama and I don’t regret it.

This noona-dongsaeng story is now one among others, but we like them as they are, right? Lee Shin Young and Kim Bum form the main couple. She isn’t living a perfect life and she has sometimes a hard time at her job. That’s one of the thing I loved, nobody’s perfect, but nobody’s hateful. Min Jae is this optimistic musician, but it happens that he gets angry, which is very normal. Furthermore, he is just so pretty that I would love him no matter what. And he must be the only man on Earth who would look totally handsome with grey hair! (Maybe TOP too with his silver hair…)

The second lead couple is Jung Da Jung, a famous translator and Banseok, a doctor. They seemed very professional at their job and I really liked their character. However, when they got into a couple, I found them completely stupid and annoying, so it didn’t please me very much. As for the third couple, they were just boring. Shin Young’s ex-boyfriend, Sang Woo, and Min Jae’s mother, Choi Sang Mi, formed a couple, but… They just seem to be together so that the mother would let his son date a woman older. I didn’t find their relationship cute.

Finally, we got the 3rd girl, Bu Gi. She is the third woman in her 30s  and she isn’t married. However, she is more like the strong woman and determined to manage her own life. Her character was interesting and I like how she gave a lot of support to her best friends. There were also Shin Young’s co-worker who helped her a lot or who were despicable.

The storyline was really simple and you could predict things easily and I don’t know why this drama was so underrated. Some of the songs were very pretty. I really loved “Can I Come Closer” by Kim Ye Seul~ So I would name this drama as a light and happy drama that is very enjoyable…
