It is a 30 episodes drama but a kind of drama that will give you a satisfactory ending. The reason why im watching korean drama is that they are good in romantic comedy. But this drama gave me an impression that it is not just that kind of genre that they are good, this story is so touching, heartfelt story that will actually give a warm effect to your heart. It has read more a valuable moral lesson to give the viewer. This story is a drama not more on romance but not boring. Every episode is a must to watch that you wont want to stop and forget about sleeping! I finished it for 2 and a half days! This drama is a MUST WATCH DRAMA, you wont say that your 30 hrs was a wasted=)

Without a doubt, I would highly recommend this. By far, one of my favorite dramas ever.

I was instantly hooked from episode 1, which is quite rare for me nowadays. I couldn't stop and kept wanting to watch more! I love how it starts from when the characters were young, so you could really feel and experience how they grew up. This drama has a lot of scenes involving motherly love, and read more those were the ones that made me cry nonstop. I also love how it shows Tak Goo find his dream in life, and watching him pursue it was amazing! The baking scenes were really fun to watch. The cast is excellent, I couldn't of asked for a better casting selection! They all were great, and really portrayed their true characters.

Full of both heartbreaking and also happy moments. I probably cried in almost every episode of this drama. I would always have red and puffy eyes after. But I personally love dramas that make me cry buckets! I would not hesitate to watch it again. So again, I highly recommend this drama!

    Some how I dont like this drama so much. At the beginning it was so good and interesting. But then I feel bored after eps and eps. Maybe because I'm too young to watch these kind of dramas. I was watching it when I'm 13 or something. Maybe I wanted romance dramas only. Aww I'm so teenage, cant' help it >//<.

    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
