quirky and cute
22 March 2019 | by tashrimacSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorite shows of all time. The main couple is so lovey dovey and adorable. The entire cast is so good. I love this because of the simplicity of the plot. It's nothing complex. It's about college kids and their everyday situations. I've always liked Nam Joo Hyuk, he is so charming here. The chemistry between the main couple would definitely make you ship them. I watch this drama whenever I'm having a bad day or hard time. It cheers me up every time. Anyone wondering whether to start this or not, I 100% recommend that you won't regret your time.
