I am new to K-dramas and so this will be my first ever K-drama that I will watch. The sole reason being that its kinda about football (soccer). I hope it turns out good!!!!!!

Gods of the East Subbing Squad are subbing this drama so I thank them for their time and effort :-)

On a side note - Both South and North Korea have already qualified for the 2010 World Cup. Big whoop!

Ok, I am trying to like this drama, but it has quite a few problems and I have only watched the first episode. The acting aside. No one has impressed with their skills, but the plot holes and devices are killing me. I like sports. I will try to keep with this series and the subbing team is awesome and quick, but...
A. The first scene was a little off. I know it was her imagination, but what happened to the guy who was driving the car? You can clearly see him and when the car stops she is on the passenger side and he's gone.
B. She has been filiming this guy play soccer, saw him at the hotel, but she still does not recognize him when he gives her a ride on his cart?
C. Question B + she sees him in the resturant, but walks right past him as if she don't know him? I mean she needs this guy, but she still don't know his face the third time she meets him?
D. You need this person badly. All of a sudden he is right in front of your face, but let him leave the resturant without saying anything? I mean, as soon as I would have saw him, I would have been jumping to sign him.

There are a few more things wrong with episode one, like the whole falling in the water thing and the wedding, but anyway on to episode two.

I Love this drama.. :cheers:

this drama is one of those dramas that starts really confusingly. but latter on it turns out to be a really good and intense drama.. if anyone of you guys watched the drama "Green Rose".. its something like that drama..

Before i would have recommended this drama to yunho's fans.. but now i recommend it to everybody.. this drama is not only about sports.. it has another humanly side of it.. :cry:

i just reached episode 7 and yunho is soo hot and his acting is 180 degrees improved from the beginning of the drama :wub: .. i must tell you i was upset in the beginning because of his awkward acting. but it turned out to be temporary only.. i don't want to blew it for you.. you guys just have to watch this drama... :thumright:

I'll leave you now with some picies :salut:

I have heard this is not doing well. I actually like it a lot. A very good villain in the lawyer. He gets sleazier every episode. I would think after his omai went so badly, he would give it a break. But he just keeps digging a deeper hole for himself.

I do think she should go to her father and tell him just what kind of scum ball he has for a lawyer. He needs to know

I'm a very picky person when it comes to drama! but I am Hooked on after the first Episode! I started watching this with the mind set that it's gonna be bad (due to viewer's comment and wiki low raiting) Despise to that. I decided to watch it for Yunho-Oppa~

His acting IS kinda awkward in the first episode. but after that. He's totally into it. I"ve been watching 10 episodes non stop All day today! Can't get enough of it! <3

I don't even like Soccer! LOL. And he made me Cheer when he goal! BLAH! YUNHO! You're too awesome!!!

anyways. To those who are holding out on it. Give it a shot! :cheers:

P.S: I Totally agree with comment above! This is WAYYYY better than Boys over flower! I'm sorry but I couldn't even finish the first episode of Boys over flower. No offense. Their acting in there is like. worse than This drama in my personal opinion. :roll

HAhah.. i saved it. I hope you don't mind. AHahhahaha

back on topic though. Man. After the first episode, Yunho seems to got a little more comfortable and less "nervous" i might say? his acting gets better and better as it goes. i was actually quite impressed at much later episodes. after the character got over his childish play.

HAHAha.. that little scene cracks me up. XD i thought it was cute.
(to those who didn't see it yet and wondering wtf. Ahaha.. he's yelling at the girls behind him because they were fangirling by just seeing yunho, and show them how to cheer) LOL

I watched the first two episodes but I have to stop here mostly because Lee Sang Yoon to me in this role looks almost identical to Joo Sang Wook and Joo Sang Wook 's role in That Fool caused me to despise him instantly on sight
