A very HeartFULL drama. You've read it right, it can give you all your heart has to offer: heart-touching, heartwarming, heart-wrenching yet very inspiring drama.

Story: Prepare for an emotional ride. From the first episode, I just can't let go. A real makjang drama at its finest, it made me shed tears by episode 3. The story will tell you about a guy with painful past, lost family, with nowhere to run, read more with absolutely nothing at his hand strives to find himself, his dreams and his newly-found family through the world of baking. The childhood part for me was greatly done, it's the family history that made me invest deep emotions; for the 2nd half of the drama were flashbacks has to be made, sad emotions run down and I cried. I lost count how many times I cried in this drama. Most of the lines coming from the teacher were really inspiring and will let you ponder about life in actuality.

The romance is unconventional. It's not I-know-already-who-end-up-who typical love story. It all ends up to a matter of choices. I did like the ending, it's open yet satisfying and will leave you a resting feeling.


Cast/ Acting: The child actors were definitely amazing in conveying heavy-toned drama in the first episodes. Yoon Shi Yoon maintained the well built TakGu character. He was very convincing and his expressions will make you understand what hardships he's going through that seeing them makes it painful. When he cried, I can't help but cry too. Shin Yu Kyung's character is complex and yes, she's also believable. I initially watched this because of Joo Won and I can say, he's also very good in here, the shifting from bad to good was portrayed well, I also did cry for him at the end. The two main antagonists were not a letdown, it seemed nothing can stop them in doing what they want at all cost until the very end.

Music: It simply matches the scenes it has to give enhancements of, and it has a lively yet inspiring feeling as well.

Rewatch Value: It's a heavy drama for me so I will find it hard to rewatch it for sure.

Overall: A great inspiring drama that will max-out your emotions( it is for me anyway) but in a good way! It will make you sad yet satisfied, this is one of those dramas that is hard to forget. :)

The first thing I asked myself was, "Do I really want to watch a drama about baking???" Honestly speaking the whole baking theme didn't really interest me, but I'm so glad I gave it a try. There is so much more than Baking to this drama, trust me.

From the beginning this drama draws you in. This drama made me cry my heart out (no joke I cried for hours...yeah i dramathoned read more this drama). The story is just amazing. Despite Kim Tak Goo facing many difficulties he always has a smile on his face, moving everyone around him. His character just captures your heart. Kim Tak Goo Fighting!!!

So if you are in the mood of watching a drama that will make you cry, smile, laugh, then I recommend you to watch this one.

This is a must see!!!

Both dramas are about a child who was separated from his wealthy family. Only the circumstances are different. And eventually this main character happens to come back to his real parents..

They both tell the story of a man that faces allot of pain to reach their dreams. The feeling is also the same.

    This drama is so painful to watch. I don't mean painful because it's bad... But painful because I feel for so many of the characters and there is so much evil going against them! Every time Ma Jun's mother or bio dad is on screen I want to scream

    I love how Lee Young Ah is flustered everytime Joo Won tries to "seduce" her ^^

    Finished it! This drama certainly isn't amazing, but it was nice to watch. Even though I had moments where I wanted to strangle almost all of the characters, the characters I liked kept me calm ahaha!
    P.S. Yoon Si Yoon was great in this!

    I'm at episode 28 and this drama is seriously killing me. Not because it's amazing or any of that sort, but because of all the twists and whatnot! It's 4AM now though so I'll have to leave the last 2 episodes for tomorrow. ;A;

    I thought I was going to go crazy until Shi Yoon finally appeared! Though, the crazy of young Tak Gu was really heartbreaking and interesting at the same time! I'm at episode 14 now and I can't wait to see what will happen next.
    P.S I don't think I ever hated so much as Ma Jun in any drama! He's cowardly, way too jealous and manipulative. I really despise him with all my being!!

    This drama left me so conflicted about itself. Everything was great until around episode 10. Around then it became really boring and dull. I pretty much had to watch half an episode at a time to get through it till around episode 26. The ending was good.
