Members of this boy band include:
Hwang Tae Kyung, the proud, arrogant and completely anal band leader (with a heart of gold).
Kang Shin Woo, the painfully nice guy.
Kang On Yu, nicknamed Jeremy, the funny guy.
Go Mi Nam has to hide her identity while trying to succeed as a pop idol. Comedy, romance and drama abound.In May 2011, it was announced that a Japanese remake of this drama will be released in Japan in July 2011 as Ikemen Desu ne (美男ですね).
Arranged Marriage: The rumors of Jeremy's past involve being a member of English aristocracy and his engagement to the princess of England. When questioned about it, he says he still keeps in touch with her.
Bad Ass: Shin Woo's backstory involves taking down 17 guys in a fight by himself when he was still in high school.
Captain Oblivious: Due to being raised by nuns, Mi Nam is a little sheltered. Naive. Dense. To put it mildly.
Childhood Friend Romance: Mi Nam's best friend had a crush on Mi Nyeo and was planning to propose to her once he completed his mandatory military service, despite the facts that he hadn't seen her in a while and that she was supposed to be in a convent. He never made a move when they were younger because she was his best friend's younger sister.
Sleep Cute: Tae Kyung and Mi Nam at the movie theater.
Spanner in the Works: The aunt is a real piece of work. In a few instances, Mi Nam leaves to see her (interrupting previous plans) only for her not to be there. And then, Tae Kyung and Mi Nam are alone in the country, and likely to get closer. Hey, why not call He Yi and give her the exact address?
Spotting the Thread: Mi Nyeo's cover is almost blown because her brother's best friend noticed that the scar Mi Nam got from a motorcycle accident was missing and that their shoe sizes were no longer the same. Luckily for Mi Nyeo, he doesn't reveal her secret.
Stalking Is Love: Shin Woo spends a whole day following Mi Nyeo and buying her treats and presents without her realizing it. Some fans found it endearing, while others just found it creepy and pathetic.
Sweet on Polly Oliver: Poor Jeremy. He's the only one of the band who just can't seem to figure out that Mi Nam is a girl. Doesn't stop him from being attracted to her, much to his own chagrin.
