Words from Me:

Watching this drama and rating it would depend on one’s mood or liking.

In my case, I was in a mood for a low-key-rom-com drama which does not require me to think too much. Ta-da! Ma Boy was perfect. I couldn’t help myself from smiling from one episode to another.

I may like the drama but of course it is far from being perfect. There are scenes that made me want to cringe and fast forward due to unnecessary airtime of mischief but since this was supposed to be a light story… I sucked it all in and enjoyed the whole show for what it could offer.  Be reminded that this is a high school gender bender story where the boy is cross-dressing as a girl while a girl gets to keep his secret.

It’s light, funny and cute. Not to forget that the boy is really good looking and dances so well. Music wise, as per young k-pop idol themed drama – you already know what to expect… but wait! There’s more.

The drama may be light but the characters has their own story to tell. Thus making this drama more interesting than what the synopsis tells. I also like the fact that the young actors and actresses suit their role. Who wouldn’t fall for the plain looking girl paired up to a pretty boy scenario without the perfect casting? Even the mean trio of male/female fans for each idol was the right fit. I couldn’t imagine anyone else being casted for the roles, including the main ones.

I am surely recommending this for those who’s craving for something light, cute and funny to watch. Also for those Kim So Hyun fans, this is one of her older dramas which was aired during 2012
