I started this drama because of the theme. It's rare to watch those thematics on kdramas, so I was expecting a lot.

The cast is good, and its characters too.
But for Jun Ha/Ma Roo's character.. this guy gave me mixed feelings. He seemed a maniac sometimes, I loved him as much as I hated him. I wish the scriptwriters could be a bit more human and show some feelings too. He read more seemed to "go where the wind take him".

However, on the contrary of other reviews here, I found this drama not long at all. I mean, truth that it was 30 episodes, but I have watched dramas with only 14 episodes that dragged the story a lot more. This just gets boring when we reach the 25th, 26th episode... I had to forbid myself from doing fast-forward (hehe)

This is a good drama, at least for entertainment. I was a bit sad that they didn't develop the guy's sickness a bit more or show more romantic scenes... . They leave around the middle some loose tips, and don't really explain things sometimes, but it was good.

If you are planning to watch this because of the matter of deafness I suggest you to check jdramas instead. This one was more focused on other things than it.

Very heartwarming. Only after one episode it makes you want to watch and know more about the story and backgrounds of the characters. Ofcourse it's only the pilot, but still. There has been said/shown here and there, but it attracts you more into the characters.

And than the acting: I love tha acting very much. I have seen many, many dramas, so I can speak of some experience seeing different styles of read more acting. For example I cried with the little girl when she cried.
Speaking of crying, to my opinion, this is a drama that can easily make you cry. At least for me ^^

The story drags you more and more into it and the excitement between the lovers and the rivals is very interesting and exciting to see.

This is a must-watch for people who aren’t/can’t get tired of watching human-drama where disabilities (such as deafness, mentally disabled (as you will come across in this drama) etc.). If you want to watch a heartwarming, tearjerking drama, than you’re at the right adress..

Both shows have step -families that overcome poverty and estrangement. The main couple have to overcome class differences and family disaproval.

These are both melodramas with a similar feel to them. They both involve characters reuniting after many years and have a theme of overcoming hardship, with many revelations and twists along the way.

    I wish some parts were shorter. Also, everyone is crying way too much... But this drama is so heartwarming that I can overlook its flaws. Jeong Bo Seok portraying Woo Ri's handicapped father is brilliant (and Kim Jae Won's smile totally melted my heart)

    Once again the writer's just had to be despicable and bring in not just a ludicrous obsessive triangle, but much worse, a quad, just had to ruin a really great story... How shallow and stupid can you be? F'in despicable, stupid, and ludicrous writers, and that's putting it very lightly... AISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Yeah, my viewing choices tend to be mostly ruled by my insatiable curiousity, so it will depend on just how much I get attached to the chars themselves.. besides, it seems about 90% of most things annoy me, so I usually accept it as ~inevitable, lol ;P (otherwise I probably wouldn't watch anything at all..) Thanks for the heads-up tho! Wandered across this cuz I'm currently watching one of the boys in "My Love Patzzi"..
