When popular politician Gwon Yul receives the nomination to become Prime Minister, every news outlet is clamoring for a story, and even celebrity gossip reporter Nam Da Jeong is sent after him in hopes of uncovering a scandal. Instead, she finds herself in the middle of a misunderstanding after compromising photographs of her arguing with the nominee surface. In order to save their reputations as well as their careers, the two decide to fake a loving relationship to the public. While Yul is more mindful of his political aspirations than his duties as a father to his three children at home and Da Jeong only has her ailing father left in the world, they share a sense of morality and conviction that could not only aid his new Prime Minister status, but make their bizarre new lifestyle genuinely functional.

Sometimes boring but still good. I didn't like Yun Si Yun look here.

On hold... I started this for Lee BumSoo, but honestly I don't care much for contract marriage plots...

The kind of drama to watch when I want something light and simply easy to watch. It was cute, but there were some parts that got boring. Still, I like how the two leading characters' relationship built up without it being forced. It was natural and sweet. Of course, the kids were sweethearts and a great part of the drama. ^^

Loved this drama. How cute it was. I saw comments about how bad the ending was....NONSENSE. It was a great ending, for suitable for the series.

I thought it was really lighthearted and funny for the most part and the two main actors managed to really sell the romance despite the age gap. All their awkward and cute interactions were a blast to watch. But then around episode 10 it started to get a bit boring (I even put it off for a while) and then it went completely melodramatic. I know that's really common in romcoms, but they did so well in subverting so many drama tropes that I was hoping they'd handle this part better and not ruin the charm of the show. Overall it was a good watch, save for the last few episodes. So much doom&gloom and the ending sadly didn't compensate for any of that.

The romance seemed completely deflated by the end. I don't get why they built up their relationship so well only to throw it all out the window. I guess cultural expectations played a part, but it was still disappointing to see their interactions reduced to longing gazes and handshakes. Such a downer compared to how it all started and all because they wanted to extensively focus on Na Young (a character I couldn't empathize with no matter how much they tried to justify her actions or redeem her). The family dynamic and the relationship between Yul and Da Jung were the heart of the show, so when the focus shifted, it really hurt the drama as a whole. And don't get me started on that lukewarm ending.

Some episodes were slow and the ending could've been better but overall, it was good.

It was a nice one. I really liked the family part of it's all. The kids were the highlight.
