This drama was very good. The acting of all the actors was very well shown. This drama is not like one of those dramas which may seems good with the plot but have very bad acting in it. This was a very good drama. All though the actors were not very well known because they did not have any big names, but the acting just made this drama very well liked. Once read more watching it, you have to continue watching it. This drama makes you very sentimental, and it touches your heart. It also had very sad scene, happy scene, pity scene, happy scene, and it was just very wonderful that no words can describe it. This drama was not like one of those cliche drama with a typical story, it shows how the main lead can end up with the 2nd lead. I just love this drama, and although it was a 32 episode drama, where instead i usually watch the 16 episode drama, but it was worth it. I kept following the drama, wishing and waiting for the next episode to be updated. You won't regret watching this drama it was very well done artwork.

It has been a long time since a drama left me feeling so conflicted. What is to be said when your interest is kept but the experience isn't exactly enjoyable?

In true melodrama fashion, the plot kept conflict coming and left little room for boredom. The issue is that the conflicts were often over the top and low stakes. Characters exhibited selfish, unreasonable behaviors for little reason. Coupled with infuriating love line read more twists and other common drama irritants (overbearing family, lack of communication, etc.), Feast of the Gods felt like eating something spicy. It can be compelling to have a second bite after initial painful heat, but some people are more acclimated to spice than others. I’m not sure this is a very re-watchable show, that being said.

The acting is a mixed bag. For instance, Sung Yu Ri did fine as a hardworking “candy.” Around the halfway point though, the script has her Jun Young all over the place in terms of characterization. It may be the fault of the writers but her performance sometimes felt schizophrenic. On the other hand, Seo Hyun Jin played woman I positively hated – and did a great job of being villainous. She never found my sympathy though…which is unfortunate, because it was clear you were supposed to feel sorry for her. The men fared somewhat better, though neither got the story line attention they needed and deserved. I have to thank Feast of the Gods for introducing me to handsome Joo Sang Wook though. He was a pleasure and this experience gave me the push to see some of his other, higher-rated performances. Many viewers will find Lee Sang Woo lovable and I see the appeal. His character is mysterious and the actor himself feels like Hyun Bin and Park Shi Hoo all wrapped into one guy.

While I liked the OST well enough, I think they utilized it badly. There were occasions a song would play during the most inappropriate scene. Vocal pieces were all fine in practice, but aside from “Did You Forget” by Lee Seung Chul, I can hardly remember them.

In both series there's someone that pretends to be someone else. One of the various differences: (imho) "Feast of the Gods" is more dramatic.

Both dramas center around the fate of two persons whose identities were switched.

    Usually I don't enjoy dramas in kitchen/restaurant settings because of the heavy bullying that goes on but I gave this one a try as some friends had recommended it. I have to say that the aspects that I enjoyed most were the settings, i.e. the wonderful costumes, the dishes that were prepared and the suited background music. As far as the story is concerned, I found it a little bit overdramatic at times and a little unrealistic in some parts, however it was well acted and it kept me interested during all the episodes. I was happy with the ending for most aspects although what I can never understand in Korean dramas is how attitudes and characters can change so easily. In any case it was a pleasant watch and I really would have liked to taste many of the dishes shown here.

    I have just finished episode 16 and wondering would Jun Young and Jae Ha would end up together. I'd really hate it if this couple breaks-up later. :/

    For a thirty two episode drama, the romance was lacking. Go Joon Young could have done a better job expressing her feelings towards Kim Do Yoon.

    Great drama! After reading comments I was somewhat afraid of the ending, but everything turned to be a real happy end. Worth watching and finishing all of 32 series.

    This drama although wasnt perfect and not that unique it changed my mind about melodramas. They can actually be fun and enjoyable. Loved it and love Lee Sang Woo <3 at first I was rooting for Sang Wook but I totally fell in love with Sang Woo (I even wanted Jae Ha to go away and leave joon young and do yoon to it!) definitely going to follow his dramas!

    The ending was not horrible, yet it was still an ending that I felt I wasted so many hours watching just to come away disappointed that there was no definite happy ending. It was too open ended, even if it was a brief moment of reunion. How are the audience to conclude that he didn't end up leaving the next day and they go their separate ways in life? Wasted this sad viewer's time with that kind of ending. :(

    Is this not pretty much Baker King, Kim Tak Goo all over again only with a woman? I'm not sure if I am going to finish this one.
