A short yet powerful,sensitive series of betrayal, family, growth, forgiveness and food! Why watch when drama world is full of content focusing on all points above?
Story: not a new line. Older 35+ woman conned/betrayed by lover, lover had teenage son he dumped upon woman, homeless, penniless and smart woman pulling herself back together. Many side characters who are damaged accompany her along her journey of forgiveness. Really loved the full spectrum read more of characters age, appearance, and status portraying parallel problems to the lead actress!
Acting: Female lead was great, however my favorite was grandpa. Grandpa kept it real for the entire series. Other characters filled the second lead well however you never lost focus on the lead actress.
Music: well matched to the mood, pace and story-line. Nothing memorable - not a bad thing, Left me thinking about story not the music.
Re-watch: maybe since its a short series. Not a series that needs re-watch - this little gem needs to be watched.
Summary: Many of the scenes were so realistic of being dumped, used, betrayed, and numbness which made this drama memorable. This moves at a slower pace than many dramas since its packed with many meanings behind each word. Still trying to grasp why she took him back? This man was a bad man, maybe he was redeemed - trust broken is hard to re-establish. Could see forgiveness to personally move on BUT not to reconnect - Enjoy!
