My Rating: 9/10

My Thoughts: Oh how I loved this mini drama! It was such a delight to watch! It was fun but also deep and girl power!!! I loved the womance! Three cheers for this drama!


Story: The story was great! It had romance and suspense and sisterhood and I loved it! The pacing was great and this mini drama was really well-written. The love triangle was so good, I had no idea which couple I should root for. I liked them both! But the womance! I've seen plenty dramas with good bromance but this is the first one in which I loved the two girls together! They were really like sisters. I loved their fights and bickering and how they cared for each other so much. They worked together to survive the big bad world of fashion.

Actors/Characters: Hong Hara was so likable and cute! I was really impressed with Yura! Being an idol I expected her to be meh but she did a really good job! Her acting was great and she played Hara really well. Hara was a very real character. She was flawed and jealous but also nice and caring. She seemed very human and relatable.

Do Ra Hee was a great character! She was strong and a bit crazy but underneath it all she was so nice and caring and naive and loving. She was really well-written and Shin So Yul played her really well!

No Choel was a coward. And at times I hated him very much! But then he did something that made me go 'awww!'. He cared for both girls and I think he truly did like, if not love, them both. I had no idea that No Cheol was played by Yoo Min Kyu who was one of the band members in Shut Up Flower Boy Band. I only realized that after I read that in a comment. He looked very different here! I think he did a better job in SUFBB but he was okay in this one too.

Overall: This mini drama rocked! Hara and Ra Hee were the stars of this drama and I loved every bit of their story! I would highly recommend it to fans of romantic comedies who like girl power and womance.
