Both dramas are about a couple who married, divorce soon after, only to reunite again. The dramas share some of the same actors, and a story about love between what began as an incompatible match.
Both series star Jang Na Ra and Jang Hyeok as the main actors.

I like this version better than the Taiwanese version, but it is soooo childish and awkward! The first few episode are really good, but after that, the pace is too slow. I feel like it could've ended with 16 episodes instead of 20.

I've only seen half of the first episode, but do far the main guy reminds me sooo much if a badly played, crazy Chiaki from Nodame Cantabile. I really hope he will soon be more... ...cool or something. Or just a bit less ridiculous would be enough, I guess. XD

Aigoo! I reeeaaally loved this series!! :) Geon's character was so funny! I like Jang Na Ra, I was happy to see her in another drama. Geon's laugh was annoying, I loved it though. Director Tak was awesome too, really liked his character.
I did not feel like 20 episodes were too much. And at the end I was so sad because I didn't want it to end... :(

That part when the baby died was really-really sad and I cried a lot... :'(

I recommend this series. A lot of fun, a little bit sadness but worth it in my opinion. :3

It was ok at first, the it was blah, then ok again and then blah once more...
It was fun watching, but it was not realistic most of the times.
I liked the main couple together, but why all this pain and suffering for no reason???
Anyway, even though I was excited at most, I had to stop watching for a while and then I just couldn't bring myself to watch the last two episodes!
I liked the side stories, Dragon and Mi Young's friend, Daniel and his sister, and of course Secretery Tak!!!!! <3 Without these stories it couldn't last 20 episodes without being too slow, even though it was actually slow....
I had fun, but it was not all that good...
Good: 3/5

I wish it was better. I'm still not sure if the good bits compensate for the bad bits. Too much bad angst. I say bad angst because I normally like angst but not in this drama! Maybe I should label it pointless angst.

I was not invested in the second main lead AT ALL and I didn't really like the supporting characters except for secretary Tak and Mi Young's mother.

Ah and way too much product placement!

On the good side, I loved the main couple chemistry and I would honestly have enjoyed watching them be happy in love for 10 hours. Why do scriptwriters think it's boring? Maybe because it's boring when you've got bad actors or poor chemistry... I don't know.

Both Jang Nara and Jang Huyk were so good they literally saved the show. I was completely entranced at seeing all those emotions passed on their faces. Especially for Hyuk. He looked like a puppy who lost his mother and even though the story was crazy, (and it was Gun's fault, no less) he made me believe it completely.

Liked it but 20 eps are always too much for me. I mean I feel like originally it was 16 but they added 4 more because of good ratings.

Aah another kdrama that could have been great but ended being good bordering on average with the help of lazy writing. Why do you insist on making a 20 episode drama if you don't have ideas to fill all of them? This could have been very good if they decided to make it a 12-16 ep drama I think.

One of my pet peeves is pointless suffering. They do it a lot here.
Geon sacrifices his happiness and pushes Mi Yeong away to spare her from potential but not certain anquish. Then they suffer for some time until one episode from last one and then when everything comes out in the open and no ones circumstances change they get back together. Why oh why did you suffer for then? What was the point?
That makes all their (and our) suffering nothing more than a gesture; something you do until your SO learns how thoughtful you are. It also makes me feel foolish and duped. I start thinking "aaah so you can not think of anything to resolve this and do a blatant cop out and then expect me to be happy for them when they could have been happy 6 episodes ago?"


This is not a bad drama, but a drama full of cliches, under-developed and under-used characters and a lacking storytelling. There are no bad guys here; just some people making bad things. No one gets punished for the bad things, and only a select few admit their wrongdoing; the rest get away with it.
If not for the brilliant 2 mains and Director Tak this would have been a bad drama. They are the ones that makes this fun to watch.

This drama was absolutely a fun ride all the way through. I watched the original tw version not so long ago, and I adored the storyline, but as it got to the ending, it lost its appeal because of some of the overdramatic elements. But this Korean version has taken everything I disliked in the tw version and improved it. Really, everything was so perfect--Lee Gun's laugh, snail couple--everything was incredibly lovable. If there's anything that could be improved, it would be the last episode. The drama never dragged and kept my interest until the last episode, where I thought they could have made the ending a bit more exciting. Nevertheless, if you're a romance fan, I would recommend watching this version over the original version.

If there's only one thing the Taiwanese version did better,
it would be that the female lead was more convincing as someone who starts off as awkward and lacks self confidence. The actresses for both versions did well in their role. But seriously Kim Mi Yeong had way too many envy-worthy outfits to be considered unfashionable.
