I might not be the smartest, but I won’t ignore injustice. I might not be the smartest, but I don’t ignore a friend in need. I might not be the smartest, but I have a warm heart. I’m someone who can prove that not being smart doesn’t mean you lost in life. – Kang Bok-soo

- This show has a lot of beautiful messages such as team work, persistence, endurance and so many others.
- Oh the cast! I loved watching every single one of them especially the Wildflower class.
- The acting was excellent. Every actor fits their role. The characters, from the main couple to the side characters, were really cute.
- I was really impressed with Kwak Dong Yeon in this drama. His acting is so convincing and its either you love or hate his character.
- Kang Bok Soo was probably the real highlight of this drama. I really loved Yoo Seung Ho’s performance. Yoo Seung Ho is really a great actor. I’m forever in love with Yoo Seung Ho.
- Many said that this drama was “just okay”, but I think My Strange Hero is a little gem of its own.
My Rating – 8.5/10 (I really enjoyed watching this one. I felt happy every time I’d watch an episode.)
