    Hello there, past addiction for the past few months! This drama is ridiculously good, and ridiculously bad at the same time. How can that be? As much as I love our main character, I can't even tell you how many times I was hell bent on throwing objects at her via computer screen. At the same time, she's lovable, quirky and extremely clueless, which is how most heroine's are. Did I mention she kicks ass, like literally? There's a love triangle and I honestly can't tell you who I was really rooting for, but all in all, I was content with the ending. There's annoying secondary characters (like all dramas) but they sort of turn out to be lovable. LOVED IT. Must watch, for serious.

    While watching this show I started off not really expecting to like it. The first few episodes were really slow to me, and I found them a little boring. Then somewhere towards the middle it started to pick up and I found myself enjoying watching it for a little while. But then the last few episodes ruined it for me. I think they were unnecessary and the way it ended didn't answer anything [if you read the comments for it on DramaBeans it's exactly how I feel about it]. The way I feel is they could've ended it at episode 16, the ending they gave left me more confused than anything.

    The story itself is a little on the ridiculous side, but

  • Myung Wol and Mi Ho gives off the same feeling, Myung Wol is from the earth but she is lost when it comes to love just how Mi Ho is lost about everything around her.I feel that Myung Wol is just as cute in her acting and voice as Mi Ho.If you liked one try the other 2, i`m sure you`ll like it

    I love "Han Ye Seul" but hated "Han Myung Wol" for deceiving and playing with a mans heart. I felt like killing her so many times by somehow magically appearing in the drama. I've seen melodramas, tragedies but I have never been so irritated by a drama like this. I don't know if it's because this drama is that good or just junk. You just gonna have to decide yourselves. Duration of this drama has been like a love–hate relationship for me. I just couldn't let go of the fact how cute, adorable and sexy "Han Ye Seul" was throughout this drama.

    It was ok up unti Han Ye sul left, i think. after that it felt kinda awkward between the actors...idk

    The music really touched me... If there were no emotional music to go with the drama omg. I would've never cried so hard ;_; I didn't even have a box of tissues to use ;~;
  • FatPanda Feb 10, 2014
    I loved this drama... It really made me cry a lot for some reason... I don't get why people gave this drama a 6,7, or 8 rating... It's an amazing drama. At first I thought it was going to be a tragic ending but then I'm soooo glad she came back! And so did Choi Ryu!! Super happy. These types of dramas are my kind of dramas. Happy ending :) And living together happily ever after... lol

    This drama is almost exactly like My girlfriend is a gumiho.

    i completed this it 2011. i wasted my time STUPID DRAMA (i don't know WHY i finished it !)
  • anngominho Sep 19, 2013
    I love stories about spies and so I was dying to see this drama. I ended up liking it a lot and laughed a lot with Myung Wol trying to seduce Kang Woo.
    I confess that a little twisted that Choi Ryu ended up staying with Myung Wol ... (Though I think that actress obvious that rich girl would end up falling for it ..)

    I remember when I first saw this drama and I really thought it was hilarious. I'm considering to watch it again... cuz I have my "shinhwa changjo period" again.. so I need to watch all their dramas one more time... hahaha. To much sparetime. XD Anyway I'm still watching Dongwan's sitcom "Mr. Kim" and it will take a while lol :D

    Too many dragging scenes with flashbacks. This drama should have ended in 16 episodes ¬_¬

  • milafanway Feb 7, 2013
    This drama sucked from ep 10 because Han Se Yul escaped to EEUU and she married or something like that and the actors showed that they were so pissed because it was unprofessional
