I absolutely adore chae rim and when you add kwon sang woo and so ji sub in the cast, the show is a must watch. Im talking the 2004 drama we are dating now. Nice to watch the good old dramas when the story is simple but relatable. Its also fun seeing their fashion back in the days plus the pager haha. And watching these huge hallyu stars when they were just rookie actors are entertaining. So here i go with my review.
Ho jung is cute and charming cant believe the guys dont like her. And why cant the guys just tell her straight that they like someone instead of telling her lies? Kyu in – now theres a nice guy. He may look mean but hes got a good heart. Seems like he fell in love with ho jung at first sight. And so funny that she hates him all because he ratted her out to her mom when she begged him not too. Since then theyve been like dog and cat..seems like all he does is catch her at the worse times..when she has boy problems. And yet there he goes still pining for her. I feel sad seeing him watching her wait for hyun min the law student all the while knowing hes got someone else. I also dont know why he wont just tell her about hyunmin jerk and put her out of her misery? Su ji may not be pretty but shes rich and really nice. I wish she had more confidence in herself or maybe cha hee should teach her a thing or two about fashion. Im hoping she ends up with pretty boy hyo jae. I teally like cha hee shes so cool and in the drama you can also see that pretty girls have their own problems too. So hojung finally studied and passed the exam all thanks to mean teacher kyu in. But then she finally found out the truth about hyun min and broke up. Hojung feels sad and is now scared of loving someone. I would too if i had two lousy jerks cheat on me.
We see hojung 2 years later with short hair and someone is creepily taking pictures of her at work and at work. Later he makes a grand gesture by making strangers give her roses. When they finally met im as at loss for words as hojung. He wanted to make it special but damn youre a complete stranger and stalking her is not good strategy. Eventually he wins her over by helping her at work and in school and by befriending her friends. He is a bit jealous of kyu in which is weird since he is dating cha hee. I know a guy that
Goes all out may just well be crazy and i was right! No sooner has hojung accepted him and he begins to show his true colors. Like forcing her to kiss him on her bday? And telling her what hair style or getting enraged at kyu in and fighting with her old boss? Wow this guy is seriously psycho. I canr believe hojung fell for another loser!! The last bit with him forcing her to go to paris and going crazy at her oarents hiuse was half scary half hilarious!! Hope he finally lets her go. In surprised that kyu in likes cha hee. Seems he likes ho jung but i thiught his male pride is making him be with cha hee. But that sweet moment at the seoul tower looks like he likes her back. Lets see how it goes. On the other hand hojae is still his playful self but is being really mean to suji for playing with her heart. I really hope he falls deep in love with her. She may not be pretty but she is nice and rich and understands him.isnt that what he wants?
Ao far having fun watching the show. How i wish kyu in and ho jung gets together soon
