It seems good so far. There are some really hilarious scenes that I hope they will keep up through the series. The plot is a bit cliche but it's being approached in a sweet way.
Very different from the original, but It's still good. This one falls more under the guidelines of a generic drama than the first season. The first season was realistic a addressed it's issues in a very serious manner, letting funny or lighthearted parts flow in naturally. With this one, they go more for the staged cheap laugh and exaggerated stunts. Now that's not to say that it doesn't get serious when it absolutely has to, it's just that they purposely (and obviously) tone it down in favor of more comedic portrayals. I'm guessing the reason for this is that the average drama viewer doesn't want to watch something that so closely resembles the parts of life that many would rather not fully acknowledge. People want to escape, not be reminded of just how bad life can get.
It moves really slow sometimes and I found myself losing interest about half way through, but overall it's not that bad. I would suggest watching the Taiwanese version if you aren't really feeling this one. The acting is a bit more believable.
