The lead actor Lee Dong Gun and actress Kim Sun Ah share a chemistry that is critical in any romantic comedy, despite the fact that she is five years older than him. The script is funny. When Lee Dong Gun, acting as Kim Bong Sang, returns to Korea with a stolen artifact and unexpectedly sees the media at the airport, he wonders aloud if the media is there because celebrity Lee Dong Gun (himself) is somewhere around.
Kim Sun Ah is not afraid of laughing at her own large size too. In the drama, Kim Bong Sang’s grandparents is heard complimenting her large butt, good for babies, they tell Kim Bong Sang.
This is definitely one of the better dramas I’ve seen in recent weeks.
