KBS 2TV's new drama "Dalja's Spring" has been receiving positive responses since its first episode was aired on Wednesday. The comic melodrama revolves around the life of a 33-year-old single woman, Oh Dal-ja, to show the reality she faces as an "old maid" and the love she still dreams of one day having.

Chae Rim plays the female lead, with Lee Min-ki playing opposite her as Tae-bong, a man younger than her who has a crush on her. Singer and actor Lee Hyun-woo-I plays Uhm Jung-ki, whose goal is to find a perfect and rational love. Other cast members include Gong Hyung-jin and Lee Hye-young.

In the first episode, Dal-ja, naive and clumsy, falls in love with Shin Se-do (Gong Hyung-jin), but to her disappointment soon finds that he is a playboy. She also encounters Tae-bong, whose job is to pose as a woman's boyfriend under contract. He will sign a contract with Dal-ja in later episodes.

Viewers praised the drama for interesting characters and funny situations they can identify with. "I like the story development that I can sympathize with, and I think the characters are interesting and the cast is very good", a viewer said. "I like the straightforward lines, too".

Other responses included, "It was so engaging that I never took my eyes off it", "I liked that it showed reality in cartoon-like situations", and "It was better than I expected". Many viewers also praised Chae Rim for her portrayal of the naive single woman.
