In last scandal, the male lead was still a bit of a child at the end. In this one, the male lead really grew up a ...

I actually liked Marry a Millionaire. The show sort of ended at episode 10, but they kept going for 6 more that didn't really make any sense.

They really had no place to go. As if she would go with the guy who humiliated her like that.

And he was a real good guy, even if he was pretty stupid.
