Not terrible but nothing special
10 June 2014 | by GracelovesmoviesSee all my reviews

It was alright, something I don't totally regret watching. It is worth watching if you have 2 hours to kill and absolutely nothing else to watch. As with many other Korean dramas and movies,the humor was very forced (e.g. the 2 "funny guys" dancing behind). In my opinion, the main lead was the saving grace of the movie. He played his role well enough, with his air headed laughter making him quite a likable character. I really question the casting of Yuri as the love interest of the two leads though. She can be very attractive, but not with the styling done for her character in this show. While that was necessary since Jung Eun is supposed to be somewhat of a tomboy, the clothes and lack of make up made her look very plain. Of course, her acting is very stiff as well. Her laughter was very cringeworthy. People who listen to Kpop will also know that her singing is not the best. It sounds like her voice was artificially enhanced to a higher pitch, or she was told to sing that way. Either way, the songs in the show were not catchy, the singing wasn't good, and it was cheesy as hell when she would suddenly break into song.
