Something About 1% is a great example of a remake done right as well as how a show can successfully cut out fillers and remain entertaining.

The remake has a couple of strengths: great acting and romantic chemistry, strong writing and a run time that allowed for a tight plot with little extraneous detours.

The story is fairly straight forward - a couple begins contract dating which eventually evolves into real love. There's obstacles involved but most of them involve realistic relationship problems (and yes there's the odd one that really only happens in dramas but they get resolved quickly and only further improve the loveline). The entire premise and focus is on the romance; and because of this so much hinges on the romantic chemistry between the leads and they definitely deliver. In fact, it's so realistic you have to wonder how much of it is reel vs real because it's sold that authentically.

The original show was fairly long-winded and dragged out but this is like the sweeter, cuter and infinitely better younger sibling.

A definite recommend for anyone who loves romance, romantic comedy or need something sweet and simple to tide them over.

It was so much better than the original, which was boring and long-winded.

In this remake, the story moves along at a crisp pace. Whether due to its status as a remake or the channel that produced it, the episodes are a little too short for my taste, averaging only around 35 minutes each. More time per episode would have allowed them to flesh out the plot more completely and dedicate some additional, well-deserved time to side characters. Due to its fast pace and abbreviated episodes, the overall feeling was somewhere between a web drama and a regular drama.

The best part was definitely the main couple, and a lot of time is spent on the development of their relationship. Although they followed the clichéd “dislike turns to like” pattern, the change felt natural thanks to their strong chemistry and Jae In’s insistence on showing affection as well as protecting Da Hyeon as his girlfriend. Also, it's a change that the audience is able to support because Da Hyeon is a strong and mature woman, who doesn't cave to threats or demands. Instead, she skillfully negotiates what she wants at all times, which makes her easy to like and respect.

Along with the main couple, I enjoyed the lawyer, best friend, and cousin characters; I wish we could have seen more of them. Tae Ha, especially, seemed like his character would have been very fun and interesting to watch with more screen time. Taking time from Jisu wouldn't have hurt my feelings because what I did see of Tae H, I liked immensely. He was a bit of an underdog character and one I expected to be a problem to the main couple, which is why I liked the unexpected twist in episode 12 when he supported Jae In rather than turning to the dark side of the force. Also, it was amusing to see his interactions with Hyeon Jin, which cemented him as a truly stand-up guy.

As for the technical aspects, I'm happy to say they consistently enhanced the performances. While there were a few scenes with sound problems, the sound quality was high. The music was also tasteful and underscored the appropriate emotions in each episode. There was a good balance of indoor and outdoor scenes, and thankfully, the lighting was fantastic in all of them. Costuming also reflected the style and position of each character without going overboard.

Final thoughts: l absolutely loved 1% of Something. It’s a solid, if short, romance that I could easily watch again without getting bored.

What an amazing drama! I loved almost every single thing about it, the plot, the chemistry, all actors. If I had to pick one thing I wasn't quite satisfied with, it would be the pace. They tried a new format with a 30-something minutes long episodes, and the drama dangerously balanced somewhere in between the rushing nature of web dramas and a dragged structure of typical productions. Nevertheless, it was so enjoyable to watch it didn't really matter.

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to entertain yourself and you're in a mood for a lot of romance, this drama is for you! :)

New channel's experiment with format didn't turn out well. To half episodes' duration they just cut out everything about other characters and that was most interesting part in the original version. I particularly lament the loss of foster sister's story that was quite deep. What is left is a simple love story.

I absolutely loved it. It was romantic, cute, light, without much angst, the two main leads had such a strong bond... Happy little drama!

I love it!! It was sooo cute & sweet; Sure it's cliché but so well made + I had the biggest crush for Lee Jae In, it's been so long since I love a character like that *3*
A really good watch, I totally recommend it ^^

Quite possibly can be one of the gems of 2016.

I liked it a lot. It was cute, easy to watch and character-wise a breath of fresh air, at least for the majority of it's duration.

The mains had great dynamic and I fell in love with their antics.

It was quite similar to All About My Romance at the start. Very easy to watch, very enjoyable and nothing important to follow; just lean back and enjoy the cuteness.

Only problem I had with it is the pacing.
Towards the end we had the obligatory "will they break up? will they get back together?" crisis phase (you know the phase almost always begins on ep 13 of 16 episode kdramas and end at 15/16). I did not like that phase here. It was too long and it did not suit the characters. I would have been happier if they just said "I don't care, I love you" and just continued.


Recommended to everyone looking for a happy, easy to watch drama.

It looks so bad to write twice in a row but I feel that I just have to write a short review since I have been practically obsessed with this drama.

The plot is as cliché as it's predictable but it fellt like a light breeze compared to some of the other dramas this season, just what I needed. The plot was nothing special, for me it was the main couple who made this drama to what it is.

The main couple had great chemistry and I really really liked Kim Da Hyun as a character. She was very real and down to earth and most of the time reacted and gave the exact replys as I hoped she would give. She was straightforward and confident in some areas and insecure in others, just like people are. Lee Jae In was a character with many flaws, but he had a charm which I think could melt anyones heart, I know mine did anyway haha
I could go on and on about the lovable, and not so lovable, characters of this drama. The main character were the strongest and Im Do Yun was a great best friend, I really liked her too.

To prevent the risk of spoiling I will stop here. I have really enjoyed this drama, I am positive I will go back to this drama many times, it's definitely one to rewatch.
