    I LOVE THIS SHOW! It’s addictive, hilarious and adorable, just like You Are Beautiful. I just finished watching that one, so another Hong Sister’s drama was too good to pass up!

    I’m surprised you didn’t consider the leads good actors before this drama. I haven’t seen them before, but the opinions I saw on the web mostly said that they were great choices for this drama, and decent actors. Lee Seung Gi was apparently really good in his last drama, Shining Inheritance. You should check it out, I guess (I haven’t seen it myself) but I definitely will watch anything these actors do next because they’re amazing.

    A whole ‘nother week until subs for episodes 7 and 8 are out :(

  • xiaoSxin

    i love this drama from Day One!!! Totally into Lee Seung Gi now.. I liked him before in Brilliant Legacy but now.. LOVE!!!!

    I actually prayed for this drama to have high ratings for next week. Playful Kiss is premiering and I have to admit, the anxiety is starting to get to me.

    MGIAG, Lee Seung Gi, Shin Min Ah FIGHTING!!!

    Interesting piece/article. Even though I have never seen the show. It looks like the show is a huge hit in Korea (perhaps as hot as Tokyo Love Story back in the early 90’s in Japan)?

    seung gi & min ha were never known to be horrible actors, never was criticised for their acting, how did you end up thinking that way? was that your own opinion only?

    i think the horrible actor is Kim Hyun Joong of Boys over Flowers? his acting was horrible + terrible

    hubert, rating wise it is No.2 during the same timeslot. lost to KBS who is showing a family oriented drama which koreans prefer to watch. However, this drama is getting lots of love from other koreans & overseas fans.

      No, the original writer is correct. I wouldn’t go as far as being called “horrible” actors, but neither was taken seriously as actors in the past.

  • bubble

    Interesting article.
    I agree with you this drama has all the “success” factors to become a great & popular drama. The actors, the actresses, and of course the brain of the story, Hong Sisters are a great combo that make the drama is really enjoyable to be watched.

    as for the actors,
    Both Lee Seung Gi & Shin Min Ah were not horrible actors. Lee Seung gi’s acting was not best, but was just good. and through My Girlfriend is Gumiho, he shows a great improvement in his acting.
    Shin Min Ah also has a great talent in acting, but in MGIG she looks more stand up and takes people interest rather than her previous actings.(her character in MGIG is really cute and lovable..^^)

    thanx to Hong Sister who have made a great story and chosen a proper actresses & actors for the drama.
    MGIG really have made my day…hehe..

  • JahJah

    hahahahaha…i thot i was the only one that was distracted by that thing on her nose…lol…but i would have to totally agree with everything that you noted down. I really like how the Hong Sisters brought in Go Mi Nyu…it’s making me think that there is a possibility that there will be a “You’re Beautiful 2” =)….this drama is awesome…

  • Ashley

    First Crush has to go! First of all, her face disturbs me. Nothing against plastic surgery, but she went a bit too far I think. Second of all, she’s so annoying! I know the character’s supposed to be hated, but I prefer the love to hate evil second lead girls than the ones who are so annoying you groan every time they appear on screen. I just don’t care about her at all, and I don’t buy that Daewoong would be in love with her for all that time.

    But that aside, this drama is so much fun. It’s well acted, the plot is interesting (there’s a new twist like every week), and it’s just so funny. The way Miho talks about mating alone is always hilarious.

    • just browsing

      Haha, actually, I’m not sure whether she got anything done, but Park Su Jin is considered to be a celebrity who didn’t change much at all from her past childhood photos.

      http://cafe.naver.com/good88.cafe?iframe_url=/ArticleRead.nhn%3Farticleid=11993

      But I agree. Her character is annoying, she’s not a great actress, and her character can go.

    • just browsing

      Hmm, I don’t think my earlier reply got posted because I provided a http link. Anyway, the link I provided wasn’t working so here is an alternative link, minus the http. Sorry!

      My earlier comment was just that ironically Park Su Jin is considered to be one of the celebrities whom the nitpicky korean netizens gave a stamp of “natural” based on her past photos. I’m not sure whether she got anything done, but I’d have to agree with the them that she looks like she hasn’t changed much, if at all. Don’t you agree? Here is a link to her past photos: (img823.imageshack.us/img823/944/picture29c.png)

      But her acting is another story. Her character is annoying, she’s not a great actress, and her character can go.

      • LeLe

        Haha ever notice recently the roles she gets are only to be the main character’s first love? Ex BOF, Yi Jung’s first love. Its getting quite repetitive cause the viewers that see her character are always annoyed.

      • peekapeek

        Haha seriously I kinda thought Park had plastic surgery failure before you mentioned that she is all natural (or seems to be). There were a few scenes that the girl’s face looked weird, like post-botox effect like all the wrinkles show on the wrong area of her face. I even thought the Director’s daughter is more like-able and pretty.

        Plastic or not, the girl can’t act, I feel like forwarding all the scenes she is in.

        I watched Brilliant Legacy and thought Lee Seung Ki was overacting a tad. But now, I grow to like him more and the combo of him and Min-Ah is just so fun and love-able.

        Oh yeah usually scenes to create laughter in other Korean series used to piss me off but in this drama, Director and Aunt’s scenes are just funny. The song just keeps coming in timely. LOL. And i remember the kissing statue’s arse scene.

        In my memory, Lee Seung Ki has always been criticized for his overacting but i think he is working on it. Min-ah has always been regarded as good actress just she is too pretty to be taken seriously, and she hasn’t gotten a good script. So her acting isn’t exactly that bad.

  • crysalide

    I don’t agree on saying Shin Mina was never a good actress. she won a freaking Best Actrsee for her role in Go Go 70’s and that just shows she is a serious actress. Maybe becouse she never had a lot of good drama’s in the past and people just didn’t notice her, well except for being the CK jeans model or WonBin’s GF (in the CF I mean).

  • kisu01

    um hello! how can you not mention “the hotness” park dong joo? the guy who trys to kill shin minah’s character. every time he comes on the screen it’s like nothing else matters anymore. this article is incomplete without him!

  • guest

    you’re right in that lee seung gi was not taken seriously as an actor because he was a singer but shin min ah was ALWAYS an A-list actress.. she’s definitely known in the korean media as a serious actor..no really most koreans think so..but nonetheless the show is pretty fresh and entertaining

  • guest

    lols and I agree with the hotness of park dong joo lmao..altho he sometimes overdoes the acting lols

  • GuessWho?

    So far it’s a cute drama but the storyline imo is getting a bit dry. They need to add in more twists and turns and make it more exciting iow they need better cliff hangers.

  • just browsing

    It’s true that Shin Mina may have been considered an A-lister or have received acting awards, but those things are not necessarily an indicator of how the general public feels about the actor’s actual acting ability. Sometimes, actors came that far more so because of their looks, and Shin Mina was always seen to fall under that category in the past. Upon the news of her casting in MGIG, her Korean fans were delighted to see her back on the small screen but many also expressed concern that if she failed to truly deliver once again, she may be resorted to the status like that of actress Ko So Young, a huge star and cf queen who was never able to make her true mark as an “actress.”

    In fact, the producers of MGIG agreed. The producer of MGIG revealed that they chose Shin Min Ah for her ‘CF Queen’ image. The producer said, “Even though Shin Min Ah gained the ‘CF Queen’ image from shooting many CFs rather than dramas, for the role of the ‘gumiho’, we wanted someone who didn’t have a particular image as an actress.”
    (Source: http://sportsworldi.segye.com/Articles/EntCulture/Article.asp?aid=20100830002057&subctg1=05&subctg2=00)

    That being said, I do believe MGIG would be a turning point in Shin Mina’s career that she needed. She silenced any concerns that people had about her acting before the drama started, and she proved to many people that she’s not only a pretty face with a great body (which is what she is mostly known for), but that she can deliver in her acting as well.

  • Mel

    Shin Min Ah has always been a great actress, I have seen here previous work…. so I dunno what u are talking about.

    • KCMei

      Agreed with Mel absolutely!

  • smiles

    I am loving this drama! Its funny, original and offbeat – never sure where this road will take you which is great stuff!

    Eun Hye in is so irritating i just want to punch her,

    Noh Min Woo is my second, second lead syndrome crush, i want to do naughty things to his body and he’s so friggin pretty, he makes me feel like a lesbian.

    Lee Seung Gi – is so sweet and cute in this drama i just want to eat him all up (though, sometimes he lays it on a bit thick – tone it down mate)

    However, Shin Min Ah owns it, she steals EVERY scene with her cute/sexy/funny performance.

    Everyone should watch this drama as i think this a classic in the making, one that we’ll be talking about in years to come.

  • Mee too

    Sun-nyeo, the girl/friend who likes the male lead (daughter of the director), the way her lips protrude outwards (like a duck’s bill) when she talks annoys me like crazy. I cringe when her scenes come on. Hopefully it’s just her idea of how the character should be portrayed and not the way she normally talks.

    • Gavin

      She is Hyo Min :) Dont worry, shes just playing her role. Her real life character is far more impressive :)

    Just wanna thank you for this article. This is kind of a thing I was searching for (Thanks Yahoo

  • firoozeh

    i loved this drama and i think maybe the huge success and cuteness of this drama comes from the the lead roles living together and creating laughter from the very simple ordinary events of ordinary life and the the delicacy by which the human relationships are portrayed. miho is just too caring and cute and loveable and dae wong is so funny when trying to deny the rising of his emotions for a nice gu miho and then deeply and thoroughly caring about his gf.a very nice drama, nice script and directing and nice acting of course, i adore lee seung gi now and of course shin min ah they really feel at ease in their roles.
