Kim Jung Hwa as Kim Da Hyun
Kang Dong Won as Lee Jae In

SYNOPSIS: (source drama wiki)

Kim Da Hyun (Kim Jung Hwa), is a young and sincere middle school teacher, who has little interest in money. She is also extremely warm-hearted and loves to help other people. When she helps carry an elderly man’s belongings from the train to another location, the elderly man is extremely thankful. This grandfather turns out to be the extremely rich owner of a well known conglomerate. His grandson, Lee Jae In (Kang Dong Won), is a quick-tempered businessman who rivals his grandfather, but in an almost comical way. In an order to “tame” his favorite grandson, the grandfather agrees to give his entire fortune to the person who marries Kim Jung Hwa, therefore forcing Kang to meet the girl whom his grandfather chose. Although at first Kim and Kang don’t get along because of Kang’s extremely cute but bad temper, their arguments bring them closer together. Kang starts to get jealous when Kim’s fellow teacher starts liking her too. Through the clever conditions that Kang’s grandfather makes, Kang starts a relationship he does not look forward too. However, what looked like a relationship that would 99% not work out, turns out to be the “perfect” match, the 1% chance.

1% of Anything Review

I first saw Kang Dong Won in “Wolf’s Temptations” movie, and I have already noticed that rough character suits him best. This is the only drama of Kim Jung Hwa that I’ve watched so far, but the lady is endearing and charming.

The storyline is simple and what’s good about it is they were able to execute it’s simplicity without making it look so dragging.  The interaction of the love couple was charmingly cute thanks to their extreme personalities.

This is a nice “date drama” to watch. It tackles the many possibilities of love and how can it sway you to something you’ve never done before.

The lead actor really made a good effort to keep it moving and charming.

    1. you’re welcome dear… it was also nice but kinda long with same adorable love couple… you know how the newer version was stripped with unnecessary fillers and just filled it with the cutesies and sweet kisses…it was also like that for the original version but it had side stories here and there

    1. the recent version is better sis… this version followed the trend before for kdramas on lengthening the story with as many arc as they can insert… i love the newer version because it is brief and concise and sweet… the 2003 version is good if you have a lot of time to invest… i am just doing this throwback drama adventure of reviews I wrote 9 years ago that need some tweaking and republishing…^_^

      1. Well I’m glad you did! I wondered if anyone had seen this version before. I admit; I have a hard time with some of the older dramas like Full House and My Girl. They do still have a certain appeal though haha

      2. the older dramas are classic most of the new dramas airing are patterned to the classic dramas… i mean older dramas set the bullet points that are still being used these days… full house, my girl, samsoon, goong, chunhyang, coffee prince are like kdrama starter pack that kdrama fans should watch first… ^_^

      3. I definitely don’t have a local group here who are Kdrama fans–I wish I did! My Kdrama friends are all online for the most part. Except for those around me who I have converted 😉

      4. i see… i have a local group here but I do have friends online as well… I’m actually trying to reach out to other kdramabloggers… I can’t keep up with forums and online community because they chat very fast and sometimes they don’t make sense 😁
