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.

I think they are rushing stuff because in every episode there has to be a new story xD
Ep 5.
Gooosh... am I the only one who's happy that Jin got into Ji Su and not Yeo Ju? xD
& that robot girl... damn xD Her acting was nice! *Bitch ever since School 2013 xD haha*

... I don't want to judge too fast, but really, I guess this one will be a 1* drama for me... :/ There are too many things that make me feel uncomfortable. But we'll see what happens next, for now I've only watched 2 episodes.

And I totally agree with @missfeelo ! The thing you can't stand is also the thing that I really hate about ep 2 so far... They really didn't think much about this drama and made me question them... Could it be, they rushed everything, because it's only 10 episodes long?
Whatever, I'll wait and see...

So I watched two episodes and was pretty surprised at the acting, especially Gyuri, she's doing the best job besides Kay imo. BUT THE WRITING. OH GOD, this is so cheesy I feel like I'm wasting my brain cells watching this.

Also, I could not stand how
they made the wife share blame for her husband physically abusing her. It was at that moment I knew I couldn't continue this story. I don't care WHAT she did, doesn't excuse him BEATING her. He has such a violent temper that I can't believe the writers expect us to believe everything with them will work out so fast. ugh. no.

Also, I'm with the other posters, if I do continue watching this it'll be because of Song Jae Rim. I am on team Yeo Ju and Kay! Alex has zero chemistry with her BUT I feel like all the heart pounding she acts out whenever she gets a pat on her head will lead her to fall for Alex. ;sigh;

It will be so frustrating if she ends with Alex ;-;

@eriinnye It wasn't a spoiler. If it had been a spoler, I would mark it as a spoiler. :D We don't know with whom she will end up, these are just theories.
