Honestly, I have always been a fan of long drama, but this drama was really frustrating to me. Since the beginning to the end, I had high hopes for it, but after a while I was getting tired of it. This drama is similar to Heaven Promise, but the revenge didn't happen until much later. There are only 2 episodes left as I am writing this. To be completely honest, I don't read more think I am going to change my opinion on this drama at all. The acting was on point and I really hated the "villain" in this drama. There were a few that I considered to be. I really enjoyed toward the middle of the drama, but then after that I felt it was dragging on and on. I don't blame the actors, but the rather the writing, I really dislike how certain things could've been solved a long time ago but then it took a few or more episodes for it to be completely solved. In the end if you are looking for good revenge drama or haven't seen any. I do think you should give it a try. However, this drama will test your patience.

It has a Veryx100 similar plot and any person who has watched 'the promise' would straight away realise the similarities between the two dramas.
1.Both leads lose a parent
2.both also have a biological parent without knowing
3.get betrayed by boyfriend who chooses another women with the intention of becoming successful
4. Lose a child
5.revenge begins ,to take down the whole family and take over the business.

Both drama are about revenge. The main girl is abandonned by her boyfriend due to circumstances. Contrary to "Unknown Woman" the boyfriend is not a jerk! But what is important is that the main girl is Lee Yuri! She is so pretty when she takes her revenge!!!

    The main difference between this drama and many other revenge themed dailies is that the revenge part starts quite early (around the 10th episode or so) and you don't have to see the main lead being mistreated for 50-70 eps and getting a quick revenge near the end.
    * And yes, the plot is very similar to The Promise.

      It was your comment that gave me the push to watch this :D. I really wanted to watch a female-revenge storyline, but never did because having the 'revenge' part start when 50-75% of the drama is done ruins it for me. The pacing is so fast here I'm scared they won't have anything good for the second half of the drama.

      OMG thank you for your comment because I wanted to watch a revenge drama, but wasn't in for the main lead getting dumped on for 70 episodes. What really erks me is the quick revenge that's not really a revenge because the main lead forgives them for all the crap they put her through. Your comment has given me hope. I will starts this next week so more episodes can build up.

    I'm sorry ...not sorry but why does Kim Moo Yul's face constantly looks like he is confused and surprised at the same time. LOL

      In my opinion, it's because Seo Ji Suk can't act. Now watching Ep 53 and can no longer stand his smirk ... so, may drop this before too long.

    I agree with others this is very similar to The Promise but it's different enough to be interesting. It's good and I am completely hooked. I think the daily drama 30 -35 mins long are damn good.

    I was really skeptical in the beginning because I don't watch long dramas like this but after episode 22, I'm hooked. It reminds me of the drama yellow boots.

      U have a point, tho its a cliche but its watchable from my point of view. Maybe later on i would or not drop it. Bit i hear ya, i like the story so far... but if u have seen so many, maybe u r fed up with this kinda concept. If people that count as viewers on tv not internet not watching anymore they would have dropped that concept dont u think?

      Yes definitely watchable,i did not say every daily drama they make is bad because it not true,people like to watch revenge dramas and KBS make a lot of these and i am aware that it has a good Ratings in south Korea even though it's repetitive but exactly like what you said i watched too many and then i waved the white flag i can't do it anymore hopefully the next one will have a completely different story just for the sake of my sanity,another story like this one is too much even if i will not be watching it.

      I am going to have to jump on your train here. I love revenge dramas don't get me wrong, but my gosh it's like the Lamb Chop song. "This is the song that never ends" instead it's the plot that never changes. I want a revenge drama where the main lead is not this "everybody hates me because I am sweet,nice and naive, but in the end I will forgive everyone who as destroyed my life ." Are you telling me that no writer has thought outside of the box or that no producer has seen a script to come across their desk that says "yeah this is a different concept."

    Seems like a lot of drama will happen throughout this series. I liked the first episode, so I´ll continue watching, I just hope there will be a happy ending. I like the main actress Oh Ji Eun and both the main male leads are hot so that´s a plus, haha XD

      Ugly Alert is great, so is Okijayo brothers and Princess Aurora ( new one not the old one) if you like 50 plus.
