Comment: I was not a fan of Lee Da-Hae and Lee Dong-Wook before I watched "My Girl", but I become one after I watched this drama. It was refreshing to watch Lee Da-Hae in this drama, especially after I saw her played the antagonist role in the drama "Sweet 18". Lee Da-Hae has proven that she is a versatile actress in "My Girl". She brings her character to life and still manages to be adorable. Her chemistry with Lee Dong-Wook is undeniable in this drama. One thing I particularly like about this drama is that it has many parodical references regarding other Korean dramas. Not to mention, this drama also has one of the best Korean drama OST that I have heard. Overall, "My Girl" is certainly a feel-good drama with minimal tears and lots of laughter.
