Words from Me:
So far it is still my ALL TIME FAVORITE Korean drama series. I even re-watched all 16 episodes for I don’t know how many times in the past 15 years. Another thing that won me over was the OST. It just sticks in your head that you would want to hear it over and over and over again.
Although some people had commented it becomes all stale and boring in the long run, I don’t see that. Yes. I’m totally blinded with this drama. All I see is Song Hye Kyo and that cute chemistry she had with Rain. The bickering and never ending I-hide-my-feelings-because-I-think-I’m-falling-for-you-now charade is what made me love it more. It was a romantic comedy which made me laugh my ass out and then squirm in the inside when things aren’t going well for the main leads. I also look forward to the main character’s cat and dog antics: I’m starting to like you. You’re starting to like me. BUT we’re SO not going to tell each other about these absurd feelings.
That’s the whole concept of the main character’s convoluted feelings.
In Full House, it was all fair in love and… eerrr debt? That’s how everything started. A contract (oh what a cliché!) and the jealousy induced acting between strangers. In the story, the ever bright Han Ji-Eun is a wacky lead female which lead to a ridiculous story line. Crazy as her character is, Lee Young-jae is the logical one but eventually becomes irrational when it comes to Ji-Eun.
I will still re-watch this despite being an old school drama, because honestly, this is the drama that paved the way for me to love most Korean Dramas.
