After regiously watching the whole series. This is my rate for the series
Story/Plot : 6/10 – Not a perfect ten since the whole story is actually very plain and simple, but
Dialogues: 10/10 – The dialogues delivered by the casts are great. They are just simple but they made the whole story worth watching.
Romance: 5/10 -If your looking for a full romance drama. You’ll be disappointed. This one has minimal romantic part, since the whole story is focus on their friendships
Comedy: 10/10 – For the comedy part. It’s without a doubt a 10/10 ! Watch the series and you’ll find out what I mean.
My Favorite Scenes in the series:
My favorites in the entire series are of course the comedy part. Believe me I laugh out loud together with my siblings and Mom while watching these scenes.
This part for me really #1 epic!!! haha! I can’t believe Jun Ki could be so dumb to actually think the other guy wants a kiss from him. HAHAHAHA!
When SuJin was shaving inside Junki’s room and never thought he was recording live online.
The part when Jun Ki asks SuJin to shave her female beard ! hahaha
This one is the #2 most epic scenes, he really looks so stupid here. It was so funny I cried while laughing.
The 2nd disgusting scene in the movie. Ewwwww hahaah poor Sujin!
This part when I think it was Sujin who burnt his brow. Hahaha
Do you recommend this one?
Yes, definitely! If you’re looking for light and a great comedy drama, this one if for you.
