Full House.. More in the romance side of things then comedy, but there were a couple of scenes that had me outright laughing. I actually rather enjoyed the mother character in this one. very supportive really. There was a story told in this I didn't quite get, and that was.. the main reason the friends sold everything was because of a pregnancy they had to cover the cost for, which I didn't see any evidence of until the very last scenes where the guy is seen holding a youngster. So, you think Rain knows just how good-lookin he is with specs perched on his nose?
Take 2.. Did not follow the same patterns of the first in any way really.. but for the name of a house being the same name. So really, it could have been a fine stand-alone drama in it's own right... even if the music of the singing idols wasn't to the pro level one might expect of musical idols.. it was still quite good. Favorite scene(s): The ruses to fool Grandpa over the phone, The near discovery at the camp trailer in the morning, and The amazingly Well-Staged Kiss, set perfect to make the fan girls swoon!

1) A couple of 'best' friends dupe a writer into taking a flight so they have the time to sell her house and furnishings and well as emptying her bank account. On the flight, the writer's seatmate turns out to be a rather sour-tempered actor... which she kind of cons into financing her hotel stay and flight back. Its something of a surprise that the actor had bought her home, and after a bit of pushing and shoving, they make an agreement that she would work as a maid for the actor in efforts to pay him back. When a clash at a party has him giving her a passionate kiss,.. and rumors fly, they make up a contract to marry and divorce 6 mos later to save public face for the actor, and for the writer, to regain her home... if they can keep it together for the duration and not get caught.

2) Man Ok's grandfather has left for a visit, and would be gone for several months. The excited girl quickly transforms the gym into a clothing store in an effort to fund her future in design. On one of her deliveries, she is introduced to the Take One duo and is quickly convinced to fill in for them as a stylist. Things get complicated with the fans though, and rumors fly. To quell the storm, She is put into a situation with the guys.. and the ambitious head of the company is holding the reins to everything.
