First of all, the story was bloody brilliant. Though, there were many things that were modern in the show; the dialect, and CPR was introduced later in the time. There were also a few slips and slops in the drama. One was that the 'other' westerner's wig was a different color than the hair near his neck. The wig was brown-red while the hair from his ear to the back of his neck was medium brown without a tint of red. The lighting made the mistake very noticeable.
Next, the cast was mediocre, in my opinion. I loved that they made a westerner one of the main leads. It's very different and was what intrigued me to watch this drama. I was a little disappointed when he started acting, though. (But, it was pretty good for someone who was not a native Korean speaker.) The girl who played BJ had a voice that was very annoying, and she seemed very young. In the last few episodes, she flashed a few smiles that seemed forced. I could tell that she was not fully immersed in her acting. Other than that, the rest of the cast was splendid.
Finally, overall, I really enjoyed this drama because it was unpredictable at times. I thought that BJ would end up with William because of the first few episodes, but I was wrong. And I thought that Yan would also fall in love with BJ. The ending was good, but I felt that it lacked to deepen the relationship of PG & BJ. (Because I honestly felt that the fans would love to see their relationship go a tad further.)
I absolutely recommend this drama to those who are patient.

At first I thought this was going to be really boring from the first few minutes because of the first few scenes with Pierre Deporte\'\'\'\'s (who played the westerner William) terrible acting, but it turns out I really really liked this drama! The cast was great! And their acting, especially Im Joo Hwan (the actor who played Park Gyu) was amazing. I really felt that he had great chemistry with Seo Woo (Beo Jin) and the emotional scenes that he acted were absolutely believable. The only terrible actor was the Pierre Deporte (William, the westerner). I feel like they only chose him because he was the only white guy they could find... His english also sucks even though he\'\'\'\'s supposed to be from England (Pierre Deporte is originally French so I understand why his English sounded weird to me). He was the only reason why I didn\'\'\'\'t give the acting a 10.

The Tamna scenes where they were diving for abalones were beautiful, and overall the scenes were beautiful! Music is also very good, and they chose the right music to set the mood of the different scenes.

I may be a little biased in rating this drama though, because I was extremely happy with who ended up with Beo Jin XD. It is worth the watch, although you have to put up with a lot of crying from Beo Jin. However, that didn\'\'t ruin the drama at all for me! Right after finishing this drama I felt like watching it aaaall over again. It surpassed my expectations by a LOT!
