I marathoned this drama, I didn't watch it week to week, so I probably got different feelings from it then the other viewers. I enjoyed every moment of this drama - it never got boring or draggy for me. The sound effects were great most of the time - sometimes they were over-used (tvN likes to over-do sound effects sometimes though). Even though this drama deals with a serious topic like cancer read more - it delivers it in a more "peaceful" way then a melodrama way - it was easy enough to watch and I only cried a few times. Plus I liked how the ending was telling viewers to never give up hope & live life like it's a miracle - b/c every moment is a miracle. :D

The entire cast did a great job - every once in awhile I could see some over-acting going on (but I think the directors wanted it that way, so I won't complain b/c it did come across as comical that way). Lee Yoo Ri did great in her role as Cha Mi Rae, super hilarious & yet stubbornly proud... she played out every emotion perfectly! Cheers to her! I hope to see her in more dramas like this, rather than her usual "villain" type roles she's known for in her other dramas. Lee Dong Gun was great as Han Yeol, a very naïve and somewhat stupid loving man, I liked him but I also got annoyed by his "I'm going to throw everything away for love" type attitude he displayed at least 4xs on the show. Lee Re was awesome as Sa Rang "love" - it's my first time seeing this little girl on a drama and I can't wait to see more of her!

I can't forget the side characters like Seo Jun Yeong as Dr.Shin (I love this actor seriously!) <expect an article about him in the future> He always amazes me with his roles and he's SOOOO CUTE ?.? (I personally think he's a mix of So Ji Sub & Kim Rae Won) anyways - his character was fun to watch as the cute clumsy doctor who had a crush on Mi Rae (his sunbae) their interactions were adorable ^-^ Seo Ye Ji as Ji Hye is also a new face to me (I think she's pretty but has an odd voice) - she was overly comical - sometimes annoying but I did laugh several times with her "over-acting" - so I guess it worked lol.

All the baseball teammates did good playing their roles - especially: Choi Min Sung, Park Joo Hyung, & Choi Dae Cheol -

The music was EXCELLENT! I loved every song - my favorite was "Meaning of You" by IU - followed by: "Yolo Man" by Jung Dong Ha, "Because of You" by SPICA, & "It Hurts, It Hurts" by Lim Jeong Hee, other songs that were good but not my favorites: "Mirage" by Changmin & "?" by MIII

I would definitely re-watch this drama & I do recommend it for marathoning ^-^

This is a decent drama. It was a little drawn out and could have been done in less episodes. Also, some of the sounds used started to get on my nerves. I know people think it's cute, but I don't. There are some really nice romantic moments and the family dynamic is sweet. There are a lot of useless characters. Some of the dialog is excellent and then there are times when read more it made me want to tell them to shut up. There are plenty of Korean cliches including the annoying "selflessness". It does convey a lot of different emotions through out which to me is appropriate. I like how the writer is trying to convey the message to live life to its fullest. Overall, it is just like the rating I gave, a mediocre drama.

Lee Yoo Ri is now one of my favorite actresses. She is perfect as Mi Rae playing both silly and a person in pain. Lee Dong Gun is cute and manly as Han Yeol. Lee Re is also adorable as Se Rang. They had good chemistry together as a family.

Most of the music is good.

I won't ever rewatch this.

I recommend this drama, but don't expect anything outstanding.

    My only complaint was the stupid little sound effects. Otherwise, loved it!

    What a journey.This drama kept me entertained,warmed the cockles of my heart and made me cry.It started out in a quite light-hearted and funny tone but after a couple of episodes-as one would expect because of its main theme-melodramatic elements kicked in.I have to admit that certain scenes and dialogues broke my heart.The comical elements were always present though.The leading actress' character came across as somewhat frustrating at some point although I could kind of understand where she was coming from.I particularly liked the performances of the leading actor and the Daughter and their chemistry.The Daughter's role was demanding and she delivered it in an impressive way despite her young age.The soundtrack was nice and some of the songs quite emotional.Also,the sound effects were amusing.This drama dealt with the whole illness topic in a realistic and serious way and provided meaningful and positive messages.In my opinion,it deserves a way higher rating.

    Put aside the weak plot (the plot itself can give its viewer cancer) it is still a funny and heart warming drama. It is a bit draggy but I like the husband-wife, mother-daughter, father-daughter relationship.

    The OST by SPICA is great too

    Dropped this. It doesn't seem to be fun at all.
    Many say this is one horrible drama.
    And comments below say this is one cute romantic story.

    Great cast, the plot was a freaking mess and there were so many times I wanted to just drop this. I got so frustrated with it but the thing I hated the most were those stupid damn noises.
