Review 1 :

It is sometimes said that opposites attract and this is the case for these two completely different personalities but which complement each other wonderfully.

I really liked this drama with the “  feel good  ” feeling as they say, you feel good watching it.

I really liked the two main characters.
Min Ah always has a beautiful smile that gives us this feeling of joy and Kim Soen Ho is bright too.

The story is not always rosy, they also have their experiences with their scars each, but the whole is presented with humor and simplicity which is pleasant.

Small flat on my side for the “neighbors” that I found on several occasions far too intrusive but most of the time because they cared about each other, even if for some it could be too much.

A nice ending that they took the time to pose with delicacy for all the characters without any haste and it’s very pleasant.

A drama to see when you want a simple little romantic comedy just to feel good.

Review 2 :

Freshness, sweetness and good humor

These are the 3 words I find to describe this drama that I really enjoyed watching.

Honestly, he’s not perfect. However, I am conquered.The more I progressed in the episodes, the more the idea of ​​ending this feel good meeting in Gongjin saddened me.

The character of Du Sik was perfectly played by Seon Ho. I really liked this role of leader, darling, pampered and loved by the whole village.His story is the one that touched me the most. We don’t necessarily understand this somewhat extreme state of mind at first… But we move forward and discover its history and finally: we completely understand.We’re talking about a feel good drama and yet its story is very sad, I think. I shed a few tears sometimes. It was the perfect dose of melodrama for me.I can’t wait to discover him in other roles because I really enjoyed his acting. I watched this drama during the rumors that broke out about him and I’m relieved that things seem to be working out for him because he is really very promising.

Hye Jin is really cute.She gives the air at the beginning of a pretentious upstart then over the episodes we discover a woman full of tenderness. I really enjoyed the development of this character.

I found the main couple cute but at their age, I confess that II clearly found the cute side sometimes overplayed, especially by the main actress. I sometimes felt like I was with a couple of awkward friends haha. But I was so in my cocoon in front of this drama that finally it passed.

I really liked the fact that the drama doesn’t just revolve around our main characters.I really liked the Gongjin people’s side stories. Honestly, all the characters were very endearing: small, big and bigger. They all had their faults, but an incredible solidarity.

We learn very good life lessons from all these stories.The landscapes and scenery are beautiful, we travel … I’m a fan of 

Du Sik ‘s house, I would like to live there. It looks so cocooning with that exposed wood and those books everywhere.The OST is magnificent and perfectly reflects the atmosphere of this drama (freshness, sweetness and good humor). I have a crush on the main song Wish by Choi Yuree.

You will understand, I highly recommend. For me, it’s a favorite in the genre.
