This drama was like a breath of fresh air.
Not a very unique story but presented in such a way that it was relatable and cute.
And the romance was 100% believable

I was hesitant about starting this drama, because I'm not really into the sports genre, but I totally don't regret watching it! Truly, one of the best dramas ever! The SWAG trio was great <3 hehe
The mains were so natural! They did an amazing job, the supporthing cast as well ~
Bok Joo's breakdown when she just wanted to quit everything and do nothing... I can relate so much, because the same thing happened to me 2 years ago and LSK portrayed it so well!

I didn't like Jae Yi. For a 30 year old man he should know what he wants, I didn't like the way he chased after Ah Young in the end.

Bok Joo x Joon Hyung will forever be one of my favorite couples!
They are just the cutest! >o<

Very heartwarming and light drama with a nice doze of humor and seriousness.

I didn't watch this drama until last week since at first I thought it would be boring but I decided to, and I'm glad I did it. Another reason I didn't want to wacth this was because I didn't like Jookyuk's acting but he was great here. Never thought it would left me wanting more (I usually find kdramas boring after 8-9 episodes).

Tbh I don't know how to explain it, the main couple were so cute and refreshing I couldn't stop watching their scenes together over and over. They actually talk about what upset them and they don't overreact if they misunderstand somenthing about the other. A lot of people already said it but I loved their chemistry and how Joonhyung looked at Bokjoo, you can see how he really loves her and cares about her since the first moment. Their relationship felt real and not just a set up because they're forced since they're the main characters.

And I agree with what @ilate said, I think Siho's character development was a bit rushed.
