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.

Random drama needs random comments xD
Team Kay all the way!

I got a friend that was stabbed with a pen (He's so stupid that stabbed himself by accident), he said it hurts like hell and he had to go to the hospital... But obviously, that it was kinda dramatic... Just to make Alex plays the hero of the day~ Yeeey... I'm so pissed right now lol

Am I the only one who sympathized with Dr. Nobody?
I mean, when he starts to sing/dance Wonder Girls was kinda cute xD
But, yeah, WTF these girls are thinking? If you wanna play around, just don't have a boyfriend!
Don't take others for granted!
How can she doesn't fall for Kay charms? IT'S A LOAD OF CHARMS!
Girl, if you don't want, can you send him to me? By FedEx Express? THANK YOU!
I just hate these dumb indecisive type of characters... Annoys me like hell!
I still think she'll end with Kay, just because the ZERO chemistry between her and Alex.

argh! I'm so frustrated right now!
How can she do that to Kay? I know she likes him since ever, but why she accept Kay, huh? Argh!
The preview almost made me cry because of Kay T^T But I have a feeling that she'll choose Kay in the end (Hope until the end!)
And Come on JiSoo... you have Jin so stay with him you little brain -_-

This drama is totally random and crazy... XD

I must say... it does NOT get any better :/
You can say that Alex is the main guy...

Oh dear, god! Episode 9 was full of crap! :/
Ji Soo meeting that doctor and having those sudden feelings for him!
Come on! Don't make the girl look like a slut! :/
She and Jin were one of the best things of this not so good show... hope she completely rejects that guy in the final ep.
& once again... crappy stuff with the main couple... now Bunny wants to be with Alex??
Really girl?? Make up your mind already! >__>"
And when Alex got stabbed with a pen O___O Seriously??? A pen???
& he even had to go to the hospital for that??....
I still really like the Kay x Bunny moments because they are so cute! ^o^
But this this is me mostly all of the time while watching this drama...

Huh... I don't know what to think anymore... just be over already... xD
