A story of young people residing at a co-living house. They do want to date, but they don’t want to be serious. They prefer being free, but they also don’t want to be lonely. Cha Kang Woo is a single man in his 30’s and he works as a psychiatrist. He is full of curiosity about human beings. Even though he is an attractive man, he is afraid of having a romantic relationship due to trauma from his past. A woman appears in front of him and he begins to have feelings for her. Lee Na Eun is a freelance copy editor. She is generous to good people, but she does not tolerate injustice. She hopes to become a novelist one day. Due to her situation, she has not had a boyfriend in 4 years. She begins to stay at the co-living house and develops romantic feelings.


Talk about a promising start that led to disappointment. I remember once saying that I can enjoy a drama that loses its way in the middle, but gets to an ending that is worthwhile. This is not the case for this one. This drama had the potential to be something refreshing and new, but it stuck to the same old ridiculous quirks and cliches that got aggravating as time went on.

What I liked: I really enjoyed the way the show started out because I really thought there was such a strong case for this to become really good. I have mentioned numerous times that I am a huge fan of slice of life dramas especially when one boasts the ideas of elder millennials who don’t have time to date, but dislike being alone. I thought that each member of the share house had the potential to develop very interesting stories. I actually enjoyed a majority of the characters on the drama to some extent….

What I didn’t like: So while I enjoy the characters, I do think there was wasted potential in every story arc. I really think this show would have benefitted from having each episode be an arc for each character cause then it would have been more defined and dedicated. I did not like Na Eun at all, she was so dull and uninteresting with a very abrasive personality. It really was a wonder why she had all these men willing to take an interested in her in the first place. I really did not get it at all. Listen I wrote her off the minute she got scammed by the agency cause like the fuck is wrong with you dumb dumb? Also the overacting that she does for everything really just got to me in the end.

Special shout out to the random white guy, David. He is my inspiration for when I go to Korea and walk on into a role in a kdrama.

Heeheh. So yeah, this one is a skip guys, it’s really not worth much of anything because even the chemistry was dry which is like very hard to do because Hyun Woo looks at everyone like he is in love with them….. #SAD
