Kang Chae-ri is also the production director of this series. She is the rival of Goo Yeo-reum who directed the shows which highly rated. They know each other since their college time as they were classmates but due to some misunderstandings, they become rivals.

Yeo-reum and Chae-ri, unfortunately, direct this dating show together which leads to many twists and turns and many unexpected happenings with the cast in the show. Chae-ri uses the information of cast members to enhance the rating of the show like there is an entrepreneur who used the investment money by lying to the investors.

I found this series personally worth watching as the characters are compatible and have great chemistry. I must say if they won the Best Couple Award in 2022 then it could not be a surprise. This series depicts the slice of life, drama and friendship turn into love.
