This show should be given a higher rating! I was looking for a good revenge drama and this show AWESOME! Honestly when I saw 100 episodes I almost dropped it but I gave it a try and I loved it.

It was a well written plot. With 100 episodes they really get into the details of the story, so it’s not like the kind of revenge plot where the main character's read more motives are all in 5mins flashbacks. The upside to this is you can see how each character grows and develops with each bag of poop Chun Mi Ja throws them, the downside is that it’s so damn long (they could have tightened the first part a little).
Most of the characters are very well developed except for a few like Lee Tae Hyeon but I guess it’s inevitable because there a quite a few main characters in the show.
Honestly what I really like about the whole show was how Oh Ha Ni and Sung Soo stood their ground and held true to their beliefs even when almost everyone turned their backs on them. Though to be honest they were very typical protagonist type of character. I think that was the point of the show, are you will to become the devil to take down the devil himself (or in this case herself)? However it is not to say they were flat, they showed how they are willing to get their hands dirty sometimes.

Oh Hyun Kyung did a really good job of portraying Chun Mi Ja, her strengths/weaknesses, what drives her and the way she views the world. Honestly I really detested Chun Mi Ja's character but I guess it also shows how convincing OHK's acting was.
Everyone else did okay there were no terrible actors they all did quite well.

Nothing special actually but not terrible

Rewatch Value:
Did I mention it’s so damn long? If I'm on a looooong holiday SURE, but if not I think I might pass because I'm sure there are shorter revenge dramas that are just as good.
But if I did I think I would watch the first few episodes then skip 3 or 4 episodes at a time until Ha Ni makes her comeback which is I think around the halfway mark. Then I just watch all the way to the end (to savour every moment of Chun Mi Ja's downfall).

Yes watch it everyone!!!! It really is very interesting. It made me scream at the injustice being done but it also left me with a satisfied feeling after everything. If you have the time I recommend to just give this drama a try.

Thank you for reading my first ever review but I thought since there were not many reviews I thought I'd write one.

Both dramas show the similar stories of growth of the female leads, and in both the female lead and the evil second female lead work in the same company, which belongs or belonged to the female lead's family. Both the female lead and the evil one are sisters in some sense (not by blood, but you will understand what I mean while watching).

    Why female leads in revenge dramas always wear full makeup and elegant clothes when they start their revenge can't they do it without? it's very very very cliché.

    Woman on woman revenge drama is the worst kind of drama.

      how does this end? does she actually get revenge? i.e. do all the bad people actually get what they deserve or is this one of those bs endings where they end up forgiving the bad guys?

    This is the type of drama you need to watch one/two episodes a week when it airs...
    like there is no way to marathon 100 episode long dramas after it's all aired since it's either going to feel laggy or you have no time

      Not only lately. It's very common for these daily dramas to be about revenge. See: Yellow Boots, Thorn Flower, Angel's Revenge, Glass Mask, etc etc.

      Nothing special. Koreans just do good revenge drama. There really should be revenge checkbox under genre .)

      Revenge can be just a drop in the ocean of Melodrama. But melodrama is not always revenge. :)
