My Rating: ♥.5/5
This drama gets the lowest score in the history of dramas!!!!! Actually, just the dramas I've seen so far. I'm surprised I even made it through the whole thing...This series is based on the manga Itazura Na Kiss by Tada Kaoru (I've haven't read it). Kim Hyun Joong (SS501) plays the lead as the cool, mean guy who falls for the stupid and dorky female lead. I guess this was the drama that followed Kim Hyun Joong's success in Boys Over Flowers but has no where near the amount of quality put into it. This drama didn't fair too well in Korea...
First thing, this sets a bad example for all the female drama watchers in Korea. I hope to god girls don't actually act this way and mothers aren't actually this nosey in their son's love lives. Basically, this girl never really grows up, she falls in love with a guy she barely knows and by some very weird circumstances she manages to end up living with him. She is so annoying!!!!! She acts like a baby!!!! I hope guys in Korea don't find this personality "cute." This show basically says if you follow the guy around and have the help of his annoying mother, you can get him. Ugh, gross.
Basic Synopsis:Oh Ha Ni is a stupid and clumsy girl who has a crush on the popular and genius student named, Baek Seung Jo, ever since she saw him on the first day of high school. She decides to confess through a letter, but is rejected by Seung Jo, who tells her that he hates stupid girls (yes!). Fate intervenes when a mild earthquake ruins Ha Ni's family's new house. While the house gets rebuilt, Ha Ni and her father stay at the home of her dad's childhood friend, who happens to be Seung Jo's father. The drama continues with portraying Seung Jo and Ha Ni moving onto college and university, whilst facing many difficulties and problems, in which eventually lead Seung Jo to fall for Ha Ni.
