I'll kick this off ...

I still like Kang Dan-i, but my interest has definitely waned with this show. I appreciate how hard she works and that she tries to keep optimistic, but I'm over a couple that can't be honest. And their interactions are saccharine and lack the zing fun of the first few episodes, when they were just friends. I watched Touch Your HeartSincerity whatever show this weekend. [Spoiler (click to open)]It's a straight romance, but the romance is so much better in that the couple uses their words, are transparent, and honest. Even with how ridiculous they are, watching a couple say "I like you and was sad because..." is so refreshing.

I've always found his character rather boring and smug; he's like a teenager dream of the perfect man. SMUG. Plus, consistently he doesn't use his voice/position at work, like he's just a cutout of a powerful editor and founder.

I still rather enjoy our second leads, because at least they show some personality range.

[Spoiler (click to open)] re: him not using his voice at work I am surprised he didn't really throw a hissy fit and threaten to leave given the level of dramatics he had on the phone when Hae-rin told him Dan-i quit. He's such a narcissistic drama queen. So tired of him. He's the one piece of this drama I won't miss when it's over with.
