REVIEW


This was cute.

A short and sweet tale of a young woman struggling to make it in the Advertising world when she's removed from Team A and sent to Team B.

Team B's leader turns out to be her ex-boyfriend, who dumped her in about the same fashion as she has been removed from Team A -- without much warning or explanation.

What didn't quite make sense was Go Ho's side job (I think that's what it was) as a writer for some online magazine.

She keeps getting phone calls saying her content is boring and needs amping up, and when it is suggested that she use Stars as a point of reference, Go Ho gets this amazing idea and runs with it.

She begins to rate the men in the office and suddenly the articles she posts are a hit.

She's also becoming a Star in said office because her ex wants her back, her ex boss starts to pursue her, and 3 other men she works with also find her attractive.

The two leads had good chemistry



And there was no second-lead syndrome for me, either




This was funny, had a believable plot with a few interesting twists, and kept me entertained throughout.

I also enjoyed the fact that some big-name stars made cameo's, which added to the humor in Go Ho's Starry Night.

Would definitely recommend.
