Synopsis

Ju Yu Rin has lived all over the world with her father, scraping together money and often running from their various debts. She speaks multiple languages and is even a skilled tour guide on her current home of Jeju Island -- but one thing Yu Rin is especially talented at is lying. She can scam her way out of nearly any situation. Seol Gong Chan, the youngest hotel director in the country, has spent the last few years searching for his long lost cousin in order to grant his dying grandfather's last wish. After a fugitive Yu Rin dives in front of his car in her attempt to escape debtors, Gong Chan considers her an extreme nuisance, but then he discovers her talent for lies. Knowing his grandfather is running out of time, he asks Yu Rin to pose as his cousin in exchange for pay. Everything goes according to plan.. until Gong Chan's thrilled grandfather makes a miraculous recovery. Now Yu Rin has to keep up the lie, which normally isn't a problem for her -- but she's starting to fall in love with her new 'cousin'.

I watched this mainly for Lee Dong Uk (Wook). A few years ago I started it, but didn't get very far. Then after sometime...same thing happened again, and so I really put it aside. This time though, I stuck with it and by the end of the 1st episode I was really into it. I literally slapped myself for not having stuck with it earlier...but maybe, I am just at the stage now where I can appreciate things for what they are instead of nitpicking. That said, its enjoyable. There are cute personalities all around, and its a fun change to see a pleasant attitude from the "wealthy" family.

Lee Dong Uk did a really good job here, I can say though..that he really has come a long way because right now he is soo much better. Same can be said for Lee Jun Gi, except he wasn't as good as Wookie was back in the day, but now he's pretty darn good.

I understand that some will get frustrated with Lee Da Hae's character, but its bearable...at least until the last 3 episodes where there is too much of a push to make her a martyr of sorts. This is where things began to drag because there was just so much focus placed on making her this super selfless individual, that the storytelling part came to a close halt...until about the last 5 minutes of the very last episode, where there was a mad dash to patch things up.

Anyway, if you like cute/funny/romances then give it a try. I don't regret it at all.

The main, male and female leads of Hotel King also starred in My Girl.

The personality of the boy and the girl in both dramas are the same.

I loved the first episodes, but after that, it got too dragged. :(
If I watched it in 2005, I would probably like it more.

in the 5 or 6 first eps .. i dropped this so many times .. i couldn't stand yu rin but i tried to finish it bcoz of my friends and found it lil better after those 6 eps and even cried :(

It was a good drama but I wouldn't go as far to call it amazing or a masterpiece. My Girl certainly had it's fair share of flaws. It had it's funny moments but it also had it's boring moments. I'm a fan of the Hong Sisters but this will have to be one of my least favourites.

Ju Yu Rin is a funny character, I liked her, and the ost, too ^.^
The story was good but really the ending .. what can I say.. it was so sudden so I don't know what happened exactly, the first thing whose brother me in this drama xD
but overall I like it, very funny (at least to me) and dramatic too ^_^

I agree that it took me a few restarts to get into the series and by some parts just dragged on to long, however by the end I was a sucker for this drama and will recommend it to people. Made me think of full house at times which didn't really spoil the drama for me personally. I understand why some would find the drama overrated but the idea was not that average to me and Ju Yu Rin character (personality) definitely made up for everything the drama possibly lacked
serendipity 06 Apr, 2013
In my opinion I thought the start of the drama to be average, easy to put on hold and I would rather spend my time watching a drama worth the hours I would spend. However as the drama progressed after putting it on/off hold twice I came to really like the drama around episode 9. By episode 10 I could see why people love this drama. I wouldn't go as far to rate this a masterpiece but it'll definitely get a great rating from me. Quite sad I just fell in love with just 6 more episodes to go :/
