Powerful Opponents/ Formidalble Rivals (3.5)

I missed the final two episode on KBS World, thank goodness @mysoju it has finished uploaded the drama. I dont know how other people did it, watching two or three dramas at a time. To me its frustrating not to know the end of the story, before starting another story....
Anyway this drama is about a group of elite bodyguard for the president's family in Korea (like the Secret Sevrice of US lah). Most of the bodyguards are males, so for females its a lot tougher to get in, Cha Young Jin (Chae Rim) is among the lucky few that manage to get in as abodyguard in the Presidential resident, Chungwadae. Her and Yoo Gwang Pil (Lee Jong Hyuk) work as bodyguards assigned to watch over the president's son, Kang Soo Ho (Lee Jin Wook). Young Jin and Gwang Pil didnt get on very well even when they are still in training, so the atmosphere is very thick with tension, moreover there are some 'history' between Gwang Pil and Soo Ho...
In their teens, they were once the best of friends, but then they fall in love with the same girl... As predicted, history repeat itself, they both fall i love with Young Jin. Whereas before the girl clearly in love with Soo Ho, Young Jin seems to be not in love with both of them, but cared for both of them... I hate Gwang Pil character in which he suppress his feelings and dont fight for what he wants. For the first girl, it was foolish thing to do since the girl love Soo Ho, but with Young Jin he should be more assertive, not take a step back...
And not that I dont like him but Lee Jin Wook look so young compare to the other two even with his unshaven face! Sigh! another open-ending drama with Young Jin not choosing anyone....
