I usually have to watch at least 2 or 3 episodes of any drama to get into it. Same goes for my all time favorite Secret Garden. The show didn't capture me until the first three episodes. But CYHMH is the first drama that only took fifteen minutes to get me in. The plot is so simple yet so intricate. The characters are conflicted and the actors do a fabulous job in read more portraying them perfectly.
CYHMH has everything a melodrama should have. The love story, which is so cute, the family problems, revenge-that's a big one, sibling fights, humor, and loads of drama that'll just blow your mind! The show does get serious at some point and make you think of a simple situation in several ways. But that's the beauty of it. JunHa/Ma Roo did scare me at times, he looked so freaking mad, but I guess he has a good reason for it.
I love the Cha DongJu and Jang Junha pair. They are so adorable together! And I just can't get enough if Kim Jae Wons smile. As I mentioned before, the actors were amazing depicting the characters lives. I wouldn't say it's very realistic cause I'm pretty sure things like that don't really happen in the real world, but it accurately shows the struggles and pain people of different status go through, whether they're chaebols or middle class people.
This is definately a drama people should watch. You won't regret it. It's got a good message too.

A drama to remember, a drama to must see, a drama to cry for, a drama to watch with a loved one. (Watched this alone)

This certainly an exceptional drama. I have a confession; I must admit the reason as to why I watched this drama in the first place. A while ago, when I was looking for a drama/movie, I saw "100 Days With Mr Arrogant." Though the plot and read more writing wasn't of the best, I fell in love. Yes, I fell in love... The man who stole my heart was none other than Kim Jae Won. I fell head over heals for that man, something about his charisma, not the mention looks hooked me.

Almost a week later, I found CYHMH, I didn't know anything about it and I thought it looked boring, so at first I didn't bother watching it... After re-watching 100 days for the 3 time, I found out that Kim Jae Won acted in CYHMH as well. It was right there and then when I started watching CYHMH.

I can honestly say, this was the best choice of drama I made since "Jewel in the palace," and "You're beautiful."

The cast was vibrant and connectable with the audience.
Kim Sae Ron, one of my favourite child actresses did an exceptional job. It wasn't the same acting as in "The man from nowhere," but I can certainly say this girl was born to be on television. I am afraid I don't know the other two child actors, but I must say, they also did an exceptional job.

Starting out light and fluffy, this drama had the glance of another drama, but it turned out to be much more in the matter of four episodes. Brooding teen, foolish father, bright/cheery step-sister, handicap step-mother, alcoholic grandmother, scheming father, sweet mother willing to kill for her child, greedy mother who is will to sacrifice her child, sweet grandfather, and sweet teenage boy with a bright smile. Yep, what a plot and variation of cast. Oh my. Every character was brought to life in the first few episodes.

The fast forward to 16 years, oh boy. Young Master Dong Joo grew in to an exceptional young man, Bong Woo Ri a beautiful young woman, and Bong Ma Roo was a heart throb of a doctor.

The writing seemed well planed and well written which was properly showcased by the cast. The character I felt most at one with was Nam Goong Min. His role in the story made my heart throb more than anything. Every tear he shed cause me to break down into tears as well. He acted his role with such passion and pride. Kim Jae Won as well as Hwang Jung Eum did wonderful jobs also.

The entire cast was beautiful, but the characters that stood out for me the most were; Bong Ma Roo/Jang Joon Ha, Hwang Soon Geum, Bong Young Gyu and Tae Hyung Sook. They had the hardest roles to play and did wonderful jobs.

Overall, I don't regret finishing this drama, every hour, every minute, every day I spent watching it was all worth it.

    B+ drama. Great writing, directing and acting. Dong Joo and Woo Ri made a great couple. Woo Ri was a compassionate and understanding heroine with a beautiful heart. Perfect for insecure Dong Joo. I was a bit worried how the writer would handle Dong Joo's hearing impairment given how Korea deals with disabilities (i.e. ignores them). I was pleasantly surprised with how it was handled. Very touching and heart warming drama.

    Did anyone else hate this drama? With a passion? Can I join the hate club? It was sincerely the worst drama ever. I liked the main male lead and that's it, the rest was really really bad. *My personal opinion, if you enjoyed it, props to you*

    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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
