However there's a problem; Ha Ni is one of the worst students in her school while Seung Jo is the smartest with an estimated IQ of almost 200. Determined not to graduate without having revealed her feelings to him, Ha Ni gives Seung Jo a love letter, who wanting nothing to do with her publicly humiliates Ha Ni. When Ha Ni's house collapses during an earthquake, her father is invited to live with his old friends. At first Ha Ni is excited but her world gets turned upside down when she finds out that Seung Jo is their son. Despite this, Ha Ni seizes the opportunity and embarks on a hilarious journey to win Seung Jo's heart, all while trying to keep their living conditions a secret.

I have to start by admitting I've dropped this series two or three times in the past because I got bored of it, but I finally just finished it, and I'm actually glad I did. It's not a groundbreaking drama by any means: high school (/college) romance, with the female lead your typical spunky, down-on-her-luck girl that's had a crush on the idol of her school for years, who doesn't even know she exists. He's the cool, well-off guy with a better-than-thou attitude.

What kept me coming back to this drama was actually the actor for the male lead, because I first saw him in Boys Over Flowers and loved his character there, but was deeply displeased by how things went for him and desperately wanted to see him get a better ending. I figured watching a drama with the same actor as the male lead instead of the secondary was going to be as close as I could get.

Along those lines, when I first realized who the secondary male love interest was in this drama, I was kind of relieved, because the character seemed so over-the-top that I couldn't really take him seriously at first and figured I wouldn't get too upset when he inevitably didn't get the girl. But as the show went on, his character kept growing on me little by little, because he's just so darn DEVOTED to Ha Ni. It didn't matter that she never took him seriously and continuously pined over a guy that wouldn't give her the time of day, he remained eternally optimistic and enthusiastic. It was sort of endearing.

Seung Jo, the male lead, also ended up surprising me. Because in spite of all his genius and natural talent at anything he tried, he still had no more idea of what to do with his life than any other typical high school graduate, and seeing that really humanized him to me.

The only other thing I particularly enjoyed in this drama was watching the odd friendship develop between Ha Ni and Gyeong Su, the guy from the tennis club, over their respective one-sided loves. Every time they got together it was entertaining.

Overall, yes, I still found this drama boring at times, but it seemed to get better as it went on. The ending was satisfying for all of the characters (even the secondary guy!), and almost felt like a giant fluffball. So as long as you don't go into it with terribly high expectations, you might actually enjoy it.

I have such a mix feelings about this drama... seriously...let me start first with Oh Ha Ni as in most of these kind of dramas she is annoying as hell and of course she needs to make full out of herself all the time...but her constant stalking and obsessive, puppy-like loyalty/affection for this jackass is pathetic and unsettling, especially once they start college. I cannot for the life of me understand why she would willingly like a guy who corrects her grammar and grades it!, publicly embarrasses her, and treats her like trash. Her whole existence - choosing a college major, a career, her life goals - all revolves around trying to impress him and getting him to like her rather than finding her own purpose in life and dating someone who will actually treat her like a human being.

I did sympathize with her the first few episodes, but by the end, her high insecurity and obsession with him were too much - I found her to be almost completely unlikeable by the end of the series.

And Baek Seung Jo...boy he looked HOT as...but his character...he verbally abuses her 98% of the time and manipulates her lack of intellect out of boredom and a way to challenge himself rather than actually wanting to help her be a better person. He is emotionally distant, arrogant, and cold for most of the series, and his version of “tough love” is mostly cruel toward the highly sensitive, sweet but dumb Oh Ha Ni. Even at the end I was still confused if he liked her or he wanted her only because she was falling for other guy.

So what I am trying to say is that Playful Kiss definitely amps up the asshole guy/derpy but sweet girl concept, but the ridiculously annoying behavior of both the leads left me disappointed .

In both dramas the female lead has a crush, for over few years, on a guy who doesn't even know about her existence. The male lead in byeoreul ttadajwo is known as a heartless man, just like the male lead in jangnanseureon kiseu. When the female lead decides to give up on her crush, it happens that she's forced to move into his home. Though slowly the male lead falls for her, he decides to get married to another girl, who is loving and determined to marry him.

The female lead in both dramas has a very cheerful, friendly and fun character. They like to act cute and be a little dramatic. The male lead on the other hand has a cool and cold personality. Both dramas have these two leads living under the same roof and falling in love with each other. These two are really good dramas of love, family and friendship.

É horrível, nem perca seu tempo. Vá assistir Coffee Prince, Goong, Sam Soon, I'm Sorry, I Love You... até a versão TW, mas não perde tempo aqui não!

Não gosto de nenhuma das versões dessa história que vi (J, K e TW, sendo a TW a menos pior.) Personagens principais como o Baek Seung Jo me dão calafrios e acessos de raiva. Mas, se não bastasse o principal ser um grande imbecil, ainda temos uma mocinha idiota e submissa, que não se importa em ter seus sentimentos pisados uma e outra vez. Além do mais, essa versão coreana escolheu atores terríveis, vê-los atuando era sofrível! Pelo menos, devo reconhecer que a So Min melhorou muito sua atuação, seus recentes trabalhos me mostraram isso.

korea should stop remaking these popular mangas/dramas. they suck at it. they rely on the popularity of the cast and how good looking they are. i cant get past episode and tried skipping it but no it was really bad. the acting, the story...they are so bad!

After watching the Japanese version, it's about time I rewatched the Korean one. God, why did I even decide to do this.

As I commented on the Japanese version, I really hate the plot. Ha Ni states she's loved Seung Jo for years even though she's never talked to him. Yeah, that's completely normal if you ask me. Seriously, she's so shallow because she loves him only for his looks in my opinion, considering they haven't even talked to each other before. But of course that's true love. It cannot not be true.

Seung Jo, the cold-hearted jerk. However, now that I've watched the Japanese version, I got to admit that Seung Jo has more human emotions and reactions to him than Naoki. The latter is just emotionless and souless while Seung Jo shows his feelings quite often. Well, at least he tries to show them. Kim Hyeon Jung's acting is so bad that we can't really read anything from his facial expressions besides the usual poker face. And he insults Ha Ni less than Naoki insults Kotoko. But he's still a jerk as he sometimes gives Ha Ni false hopes, making her believe that he might actually be interested in her. And I swear he has a multiple personality disorder mixed with mood swings.
When he and Ha Ni already become a couple, Seung Jo magically changes into a sweetheart, only to switch back to his cold persona a moment later.
Say what you want, but that shiet ain't normal.

Now, moving on to stupid Ha Ni who deserves all this emotional mess as a punishment for her stupidity.

First of all, oh my fcking God, I don't know if it's the actress's habit, or if she just wanted to make Ha Ni seem cute, but I hated it when she sticked out her tongue, slightly biting on it. Like Jesus fckign Christ, what the hell is that supposed to be? Girl, you're not cute so stop. Stop it before I cut your tongue off.
Basically, Ha Ni is an imbecile with a soft-headed expression on her face. Well, at least she has some facial expressions, unlike particular someone. Though a miracle has happened because Ha Ni is less of a pain in the aß than Kotoko. But still not bearable.

Also, I hated the relationship between Ha Ni and Bong Jun Gu in this version. In the Japanese version, Kotoko and Kinnosuke are good friends, so it's understandable why he's fallen for her. However, in this version, Jun Gu seems like a creepy stalker who just won't leave Ha Ni alone even though he's clearly a burden to her. Seems like Korea is afraid of showing a friendly skinship between a male and a female friends. As if boys and girls couldn't be just friends who aren't afraid of touching each other in a friendly manner.

As for the relationship between Baek Seung Jo and Yun He Ra, I just want to say that Ha Ni needs to get her shiet together and stop being a jealous moron. So what if
Seung Jo and He Ra really lived together in one apartment?
It's none of her business considering the guy she "loves" shows no interest in here. So girl, stop trying to ruin his good relations with He Ra just because you're overly obsessed with the guy.

Do I even have to mention that their
wedding is so out of place? They don't even seem like a couple, so this whole marriage thing is really awkward to watch. It mostly looks like Seung Jo doesn't love Ha Ni and he's just forced to be with her.

And I laughed so hard at the script writers for desperately trying to
give Bong Jun Gu some consolation in the form of a foreign girl.
But I appreciate their good intentions though.

Overall, don't watch this drama, please.

Just don't do it.

2/5. The last episodes were kinda cute but it was so painful to watch the whole drama.
