Gu Ae Jeong is a has-been idol trying desperately to stay in the spotlight, despite her bad reputation with the public. In contrast, top star Dok Go Jin is beloved by many, but behind the scenes is vain and rude. The two meet and fail to get along, but their paths continue to cross when Ae Jeong ends up on a popular dating variety show, hosted by her snooty former band mate (and Dok Go Jin's former girlfriend) Gang Se Ri.
An interesting story that shows the behind-the-scenes life of the entertainment world, it's an eye opening experience that's funny as well.
The writing was a clear strong point for this show, as metaphors were taken and spun into more metaphors, merged together and ended up taking on multiple meanings. The plot was fast and interested, sometimes a bit too crazy but never enough to alienate the viewers. The acting, while sometimes over the top and cringe-inducing, was still heartfelt when needed and definitely rooted in talent.
A great rom-com and fun to watch. The Hong sisters did it again.
