This drama was also not on my immediate watch list.  I think I planned on watching it because of So Yi Hyun, but never found subbed episodes when it was airing, so I completely forgot about it.  It’s a light, heartwarming drama that you’d watch when you have nothing better to watch. You’ve probably seen the story line before, where the famous superstar falls in love with a nobody. Although it’s not really original, it still manages to keep you entertained. This is not your typical love triangle.  It’s quite an amusing and interesting one.  I love the chemistry between the main characters. It’s amusing to see them quip back and forth with each other. One of the main things this drama had going for it was So Yi Hyun. You just can’t hate her or her character. She’s just so lovable.

The drama is only 12 episodes long, so the show didn’t drag on more than it should have. It was short, sweet, and simple. The ending, while it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t all that great either. It just felt a bit unfinished. However, I think it’s the writers’ way of saying that life goes on.  All in all, it’s a good watch.  Nothing that you’d have to invest too much time into watching, nor something that you’d become extremely addicted to.  My suggestion? Watch it while you’re waiting for the subs to come out for your favorite shows.

My Rating: (3.5/5)

You can watch this series subbed on youtube under Sunshine Girl.
