Viewer’s Checklist
[What you should watch out for or be alert of when watching this drama!]

  • The ever-popular ‘pig-rabbit‘ (돼지토끼 / Dwae-ji-to-kki) – a ‘not-so-unlucky’ bunny/rabbit soft toy who has received an extensive nose job during a bizarre operation. Its nose has been replaced with a pig’s nose by a ‘cosmetic surgeon’, Hwang Tae Kyeong (HTK).
  • Hwang Tae Kyeong’s eccentric hair styles, which include: (i) 미끌머리 (Mi-kkeul-meo-ri / Hammer Style) – to demonstrate a charismatic HTK (also known as ‘slippery hair’), (ii) 엘비스 머리 (El-bi-seu Meo-ri / Elvis Presley’s Style) – to portray an image of an idol, and (iii) 사과 머리 (Sa-gwa Meo-ri / Apple Fruit’s Style) – a more relaxed version of HTK.
  • Parodies in the middle and at the end of the episodes, which include: SNSD (‘Tell Me Your Wish‘/’Genie’), 2Ne1 TV, Seo Ta Ji (‘I Know‘), DJ Doc (‘Run to You‘) and BEG (‘Abracadabra‘). Even the infamous ‘pig chase scene’ in Ep07 is also a parody of So Ji Seop’s Cowon S9 CF (an MP3).
  • Go Mi Nam’s unique way of controlling her feelings – the ‘acupuncture’ technique taught by Manager Ma.
  • Jeremy’s cute acts, his ‘Little Snail’ hair style, and his ‘Angelina Jolie’ (the Labrador)
  • The weird chemistry between Manager Ma and Coordinator Wang (the stylist), plus their ‘wild’ imaginations

Final Remarks
This drama will appeal to the younger audience (or those who are still young at heart) as this is a story about youngsters. It’s a good drama to watch if you are looking for something that is light and entertaining but with a hint of reality. I might be biased when writing this review as I personally love this drama. From this lengthy review, you might already realised that my judgement could be clouded by my own fascinations towards the main characters. I am having trouble to select which favourite scenes and lines to list down because I love almost everything about this drama, except for those four hateful characters. I already pointed out two of them and it is up to you to figure out the other two (which is not a difficult task as they are obviously annoying!). However, these four characters are part of the beauties of this drama, so do not get offended and simply ignore them if you find them really unbearable to watch. And, just like the other viewers who are still hooked on this drama, I am still waiting for the second season although the chance is pretty slim (or almost zero!).
