Lets see what others say:
I can't believe it's over :( Hands down, one of the best Korean drama's ever. Great actress and actors. AND MOST DEFINITELY the Producers, writers, and director. *applause*
This is the best telenovela I ever saw (I am picky)! Excellent story line and characters- so entertaining & yet full of lessons. Actors are excellent and Lee Min Ho is just drop dead gorgeous! My highest regards to the writer & producer. Sequel please!

This drama is amazing because it’s a lovely, romantic-comedy and approaches love stories a little differently. Its like a realistic love story but with the added touch of a fairytale.
When this drama was hitting news everywhere for Lee Min Ho’s next drama, I was following it eagerly, reading the synopsis and seeing all the pictures. But honestly, it really didn’t give it the exciting start-up it should’ve. I watched only a couple of months after its release, because I came across it coincidently, and I was like "Oh yeh I wanted to see this drama, let’s have a look". BUT IT’S ALOT BETTER THAN WHAT YOU THINK!
It puts a clichéd storyline about this handsome respectful guy, who falls for the unexpected clumsy, careless girl but in a fantastic new way. It actually teaches you a thing or two about love, and what you shouldn’t do or should do at times. It’s a realistic reflection of a lot of people’s love stories.
The casting was fantastic! It’s one of those dramas where you don’t hate the female lead, but you love the way she is and want her to be with the male lead. Those are the dramas that are worth watching. I’m a huge fan of Lee Min Ho, he is always beautiful and amazing. His acting was nowhere near less than our expectations, especially after B.O.F. I though he made a not so good choice when I heard about it, but he definitely knows how to choose his dramas!! I love Son Ye Jin’s acting and her character Kae-In. It great that she took this role, it shows a lot of phases most actresses won’t accept to do!! Even the evil-like character of Kim In Hee played by Wang Ji Hye -I really respect her for it even though people started hating her but it’s because she played it soo well. The whole cast did a great job, I was crying at times, and at others laughing so hard I was going to cry!
