Cha Jin Wook is a son from a wealthy family who runs a large company. He usually only pursues short-term love, but when he meets Lee Yoo Mi, who has never had a boyfriend before, he changes. In a dating world full of busy people who tend to flirt and chase “some” relationships rather than having meaningful connections that allow them to show their true feelings, this couple has an one-night stand. They meet again three years later, whereupon they kick off a shaky push-pull romance that’ll keep them on their toes as they fall in love. ~~ Two versions available: 13 episodes (TV) // 14 episodes (DVD ; online).

This started out cute and fluffy, but the last few episodes were miserably drawn out.
EP 10-12 were painfully slow, they could have been cut and pasted into 1.5 episodes.
13 was ehhhh…. This isn’t a masterpiece, the writing is loosely constructed and poorly executed. The story has little depth or substance to hold it together for 13 hours. I can’t connect with the female lead’s choices (especially in the later half) or her pitiful deer lost in headlights expression.I was hoping it would be a drama somewhat like 1% of Something since the director is the same, but it doesn’t even come close in comparison. I Liked Ep. 1-9 but Ep. 10-13.5 are a hard sell.
So…I decided to watch this because I came across an OST (I think sung by the male and female leads). It has such a happy and playful vibe to it, I assumed it would be a light and sweet show. But Good Lord! I watched this on fast forward from episode 1! A very simple plot, but failed to create magic. I can’t seem to put my finger on what was missing, it was everything – chemistry, comedy, emotions, etc.
