I just wonder if apart from his wonderful abs there is also a plot in this drama....

Or one is just too distracted to focus on anything else, so it simply doesn't matter... :lol

Episode 3 was really bad, some filler one. Not even one moment of abs of uri Pretty Oppa.

I think there is some plot here, I'm looking at it actually.

the "do girls like when's guys drive well" scene in ep 3 was well done
The heroine is mighty fine too ;) I like her lack of tsundere and lack of obliviousness. Those traits are in 90% of kdrama heroines so this actress is refreshing. She was the same in Fashion King.

Hard to believe she does not fall for him immediately - as he is handsome, dedicated to her, intelligent businessman ..... *dreamy eyes* ;)

@Ethlenn, I agree with you that Ep3 was kind of loooong (too little of handsome Oppa), but in EP4 there was an improvement.

And I want two-timing idiot to get punished for breaking the pretty heart of Pretty Oppa!!
And more scenes of Kim Sung-oh.

I want the shameless two-timer to be alone and miserable. I also want more Kim Seong Oh.
I've said it on Twitter. He's loyal, cooks, loves family. I prefer him as a boyfriend to the lead.
This is kdrama, so it would never happen, but compared to these crazy women, I'm game.

Hey! You stole my recap! I will sue you for copyright infringement! Poor Hazel Eyes Oppa will be sad if either his idiot brother or idiot hyung get hurt though.

In all honesty, I know I have to watch last 3 eps, but I really can't say where this drama is going. Oh look, a surprise factor, that is something good, right? Right??

Bad drama is right. It does not improve and Song's acting gets lost completely towards the end. He never could get down into the emotional side of a role. As for abs. Well can't say they move me. Never did care that much for abs. Have seen better anyway.......in person...
Like the young guy. Looks as though he could really carry a very strong romantic role someday.
