This drama, to me, is quite good in the fact that it is not a typical poor-girl-meets-rich-man type of drama. After watching fifteen episodes, you can definitely see that the show is reaching its end, but I think all of us that have seen the fifteenth episode are waiting with bated breath for the last episode! Its suspenseful to the very end is what I'm trying to say here. There are several read more different plot lines to this drama that all seem to weave into each other in a very cohesive, easy-to-follow way.

The acting in this drama is really quite good. Hye Kyo does an amazing job portraying the blind Oh Young, as I can imagine it would be very hard to act blind. Jo In Sung is also a very convincing actor, all his expressions are real and genuine, and that's what I love in a drama. Kim Bum and Eunji have amazing chemistry and are very good actors! All in all, the actors themselves are very convincing and emotional.

The only reason I gave this drama a seven for rewatch value is because I don't often watch dramas for a second or third time once I know what happens, especially in a melodrama like this. I might go back and pick up things I missed the first time, which isn't much, but I don't think I'll be watching it again.

Overall, I really like this drama. It's kept me entertained and on the edge of my seat the whole time. It has an intriguing plot line and I can't wait for the last episode!

I hope you found my review helpful, this was the first time I've written one :)

it's a really good drama, i liked how song hye kyo acted, maybe if i ever met her on the street while she was acting blind i would belive it was real. my favorite charater was young even in the drama while she was blind, she was really great, how she behaved and talked. she had a strong charater, song hye kyo was really good at expressing her role and charater. that read more is what i liked about this drama

This is the movie in which this whole drama was based on. It is paralleled at some point in the story line but has different scenarios when it comes to details and endings. I still recommend the movie for further comparison.

Jo in sung is also in this drama. Conman falls in love with his subject who is blind.

    finally just finished this drama. It started out to be good but then later at some episode it would drag too much, Also the ending was too rushed and messy which added to my disappointment. Regardless it was a decent drama, recommended to those who like this type of dramas

    Bad I spent one day on it. That was unnatural, slow and boring. I watched because I wanted to fill myself with sentiments of OSoo and OYeong. So I skipped many other scenes, didn't watch them. And shit.. I kept watching it to the last ep because I love Jo InSung.
    Don't like chaebols stories.

    was a nice drama,i decided to watch it after It's okay thats love but i felt a bit empty towards the end.Was a good drama,Had to think about the ending abit but seems like a pretty good ending.

    Its okay thats love is better from my point of view though.This series was way to dark and slow paced.

    Too much drama and throwbacks scene but it didn't even make me cry -_-. Though they are not really siblings I still feel a bit awkward O_o . The ending was confusing.

    I am watching it right now and I must admit there has been moments when it was beginning to drag... I mean they "milk" some scenes too much, like they cryyyyyyyy when they can just cry and as a viewer you get it already. I am in episode 15, I hope this won't be a disappointment... Jo In Sung is a great actor but I like him more in "It's Okay, It is Love"
