When Yeo Ju is depressed because she can't write a story about a gumiho without copying stories of someone else, she meets the brave Alex in the subway, who saves a stranger. Inspired by him and her best friends words, she decides to stay close to him and let him be the new main character for her book. For that, she even disguises herself as a boy and starts to work as "Bunny" in the nail shop where Alex works.

It sounds like your typical gender-bender?

Let me tell you, it is not. Of course they will find out that she is a girl sooner or later, but the drama about it was missing. Nobody cared, they just accepted it and went on. The first few episodes were horrible to watch. Somehow, the concept of this drama reminds me of a japanese drama, just that the execution of it was a lot worse. Every episode they have a customer and Alex, Kay and Jin try to help them. Alex can magically read from their nails what kind of body condition or problem they haave, Kay is the strong guy and Jin is the beauty that helps out with the rest. I'm not against the concept, but at first it felt messed up. You don't know the characters and with that can't understand why they do what they do. And even though you're supposed to get to know them better through their customers problems, it was hard during the first 3 episodes.

To be honest, after I got used to it the drama somehow seemed not so bad and cute. Alex was nice but the story with Bunny and Kay was more intense and interesteding. And Jin was very cute with his storyline. But now to the major issues of the drama.

First of all, what was that gumiho-storyline? And why did it have to be so random? This was nowhere near a good drama, this was a average fanfiction. I've even seen better fanfictions out there! The ending felt so forced and still was so predictable, that I got bored after the first 2 minutes. Aside from it being obvious and predictable, why was the main problem only mention in the second half of the last episodes, after giving some kind of "hint" in the first 2 or 3 episodes? It really was ridiculous.

And don't even let me talk about the storyline... Feeling developement is non-existend. Neither for the main cast, nor for the side cast. Alex changes his feelings as much as the main girl or Jin and Bunnys best friend do. It was random. I tought, maybe the writers were sitting there with a roulette and just randomly based their decision on who to hook up with whom on that.

This drama is your everyday fanfiction, with many obvious "plot twists" and strange stories. I can't bring myself to give it more than 2*, even though I liked the middle part of the drama and enjoyed the story during that few episodes.

Worst drama EVER.

Poor acting and awful plot. Everything about this drama was bad, I don't even know how I managed to finish it. Jae Rim's character kinda saved the drama from the worse, and his acting were a lot acceptable compared to the rest of the cast. Well, anyway, I guess I enjoyed it a bit.

It was funny to watch, but i think they focused too much on the side-stories (the one with new people every episode) rather than on the story as a whole. [2]

But I love the fact that she ended up with Kay and not Alex, since most dramas would have turned out the other way! Unexpected and I was team kay! :P

I liked it, even though the acting was pretty bad. And I hated that they put all the really good storyline in the last episode. The ending was perfect though<3

It was sooo bad. It took me almost forever to finish this drama. I didn't drop it because of Jae Rim and Cheondung. The story was awful, the female lead was terrible. Almost everyone failed as an actor/actress.
I rated it 2 instead of 1 because...
at least she ended up with Kay. (I was a Kay x Bunny shipper) Plus Jae Rim was hot and played his character well.
