YOU WOULD LOVE THIS KDRAMA IF YOU ARE INTO.....

constant comical scenes
male lead falls harder than female lead
youth coming of age
I'm going to honest...this is probably my TOP OVERALL FAVORITE KDRAMAAAAAA! With Bok Joo's humorous personality and Joon Hyung's "golden retriever" expressions, it just made the drama so entertaining. There is literally no moments where its boring and I understand that some people may not love "cringe" romance but this kdrama was (in my opinion) just the right amount of it! Additionally, the OST (original soundtrack) gave such a beautiful vibe of being full of youth. Which brings up how successful the aspect of friendship was also shown. Overall, this kdrama screams comfort and gives a refreshing perspective of life.
