I'll admit that when I first read the synopsis, I really didn't expect much from it. It even looked like an ordinary drama story, but that all changed as soon as I watched the first episode.

Story: The story was different and well written. The plot kept getting more interesting with each passing minute. Everyone involved in the production of it, cast and staff, knew just how to take it a notch read more up with each episode, which left me wanting more.

Acting/Cast: The actors did such an amazing job that I loved every interaction between them, even the ones I loved to hate (and there were a few of those). Jung Woo Sung playing the role of Yang Kang Chil was simply brilliant and he is a character I will not forget. Kim Bum as Gook Soo was also amazing.

Music: I loved the soundtrack of this drama, every song went perfectly with the moment and the story. It, also, helped enhance the emotions the cast kept throwing our way.

Rewatch: I would love to re-watch this, but it's not very likely any time soon. Not because I didn't like the drama and not because I thought it was average and not worthy of a re-watch. But because every aspect of the story, even the happy moments, were heartbreaking.

Overall, I give this drama a 10. I think it deserves it. It cast a magical spell which enthralled, amazed me and from which I could not escape. It is definitely worth a watch and make sure you have some tissue with you because it is a real tearjerker, especially towards the last episodes.

This drama. THIS drama. Honestly speaking, I only started watching it for Han Ji Min, but ever since the second episode, I have been so emotionally invested in this drama that it's ridiculous. I was really thinking that I was going to get let down, but I didn't. This drama is a lot more about fighting your way through life and never giving up. It's broken my heart and put it right read more back together again. It almost makes me wish I had lived a life like our main character had, so I could appreciate all the small things in life as he does. It's made me change the way I look at things, and it's so well developed and perfectly paced that it's, for lack of a better way to say it, perfection. The chemistry is unbelievable. I'd watch this drama a million times over if I could.

Both dramas are romantic heart warming melos with the same screen writer, director "and other cast members: Kim Bum..."

the plot is different, but these two melo-dramas have several similar element: Murder scene in the past. Friendship and betrayal. The main female lead who sincerely loves the male lead no matter how sick and how screwed up he is. and beautiful acting! (but stil Jung Woo Sung as Yang Kang Chil is still the best acting I've ever seen in dramas)

    I am so happy that this was my 100th drama that I completed. Absolutely beautiful. My favorite scene was the sunrise scene on the mountains which made me cry because it was so heart warming. Best main male lead ever, Jung woo Sung<3

    Even though it was somewhat frustrating because the main lead life was so unfair, it was an incredibly beautiful drama to watch. 8.9:)

    Finished ep 5 and I can see why some people might not like it, but others will love it. It isn't flashy like your popular shows. Rather, it feels more mature and carefully written. It's a show where you feel like you're watching relationships grow. As they get to know each other, you are right there getting to know them too. Some people may find that boring but I love it. I actually feel invested in these characters for more reasons than, "Wow he's cute and rich!".
    But I'll see what I think when I finish it. lol

    on ep13 now. very nice drama. I really like it. JWS is doing amazing job here. I truly hate detective Jung. And Kim Bum is sweet. Although he looks too much like Takeshi Kaneshiro in "Lavender".

    This drama is perfect. So perfect till someone like me who is not a fan of Korean drama can watch it until the end of it. Absolutely worth to re-watch it (which what I'm doing right now). 10/10.
