The drama is about love of singles in their 30s. Hong Nan Hee is an ordinary worker at a publishing firm, she's a girl who always falls in and out of love since she was young until one day when she meets an old classmate, Byun Hyung Tae, who is a team leader of an advertising company again. Hyung Tae may seem to be a good catch in the eyes of many women but he's only a cowardly boy to Nan Hee whom he has grown up with. '9 End 2 Outs' is using the baseball theme to compare to the fates and lives of the people in love.

Mi-Su Shin (Ye-seul Han) is beautiful and intelligent. She works as an advertising executive and also has a unique theory on dating that she uses to pick out her perfect man. Her secret is to have an open mind and meet as many different candidates as possible: an extremely wealthy man, nerdish grad student who may pass the ultra difficult Korean bar exam, an up-and-coming rapper, and a neighbor who can help her with a huge advertising project. She has each of these men wrapped around her finger, as she uses a chameleon like personas to fit in with each guy. She then tries to gage the potential of each of her suitors, but unfortunately for Mi-Su, her plan goes horribly awry as her web of indiscretion comes out into the open. Will there be a guy left for Mi-Su?
i've been looking for this for so long...
i'm glad i found one with subs...
how i've missed han ye sul...
still can't forget her from couple or trouble (fantasy couple)...
it's one of my fave dramas...
and now, she's turned this movie into of my faves too!
the ending was unpredictable, at least for me.
it ended differently from what i imagined.
Iwase Ken and Yoshida Rei have been friends since elementary school. Ken, is obstinate and unskilled in love, but he fell long ago for the lively and cheerful, Rei. But Rei is about to get married to another man. While Ken and other friends from high-school attend the wedding ceremony, a fairy appears and sends Ken back in time, giving him a second chance to win the girl he loves.
this is a jdrama that will get you hooked!~
after one episode, you're gonna want to watch the next.
it leaves you hanging and yearning for what's about to happen on the next episode.
it's a romantic comedy so it's very entertaining... :)
plus, iwase ken was played by the all-adorable yamapi!
nagasawa masami (she also stars in the romeo juliet drama) wasn't bad either...
don't be disappointed with the ending...
(i'm not saying it's disappointing, though.)
although it may seem a little bit incomplete, there's a special that sets one year after the drama's ending...
so after this, watch the special too... :)

Due to poor grades, Tsukune Aono, an average high school student, has been unable to get accepted into any private academy of his choice. By exceptional accident, the only school to accept him turns out to be anything but ordinary; the school is attended by youkai disguised as humans. Fearing for his life, he attempts to escape only to meet Moka Akashiya, a beautiful girl who just happens to be a vampire. Despite this, Tsukune decides to stay at the academy, hiding his human nature from students and teachers. Tsukune also discovers that when the rosary around Moka's neck is removed, her true nature emerges.

When literally bumping into each other at the airport, they accidentally take each other's passports. They meet again and Seung-wan and Se-jin end up spending the day together. Se-jin knows about his girlfriend, who is two timing Seung-Wan with Min Do-Hyuk (Lee Ji Hoon). Partially to help Seung-Wan avoid from discovering the truth, Se-Jin spends the rest of her time with him. They both get drunk out of sadness of their loves, and end up sleeping together. Back in Korea, Se-jin discovers she is pregnant. She leaves to have the baby alone. A series of events happens for about a year, and Se-Jin's clueless sister ends up spilling the secret to Seung-Wan at this engagement party, showing up with Han Shin-Bi (Jung Da Bin), his daughter, without Se-Jin. Seung-wan's life is forced to face fatherhood and the anger of his two-timing girlfriend - Lee Chae-young (Han Eun Jung). Se-jin reappears as they are forced to marry by their respective families. Complicated love takes place, as Do-Hyuk starts to fall for Se-Jin, and so does Seung-Wan, though Se-Jin is more focused on her loving daughter, as something surprising happens to her. The rest of the story revolves around the family's journey in learning to take responsibility, and learning to love each other.
this drama was shown in the philippines for about a year (or two years) ago.
some of my friends recommended it and i thought i'd give it a try.
what made me stick to the show were the actors and actresses in it.
i loved it. they were great!
it was funny and heartbreaking at some point.
