I actually didn't start watching this until it had finished airing. I didn't know what to expect, just simply knew it was popular. When I started watching, I was hooked as soon as I found out that the lead female was blind, and what interesting love story could unfold with this.
Really just a magnificent drama from beginning to end. Some people seem to have problems with the end. Seems some don't read more understand it, and I'm not sure why they don't, it's pretty straight forward.
There are usually tons of things that end up bugging me in dramas, but there was only one here and it came in the last episode. It's the decision Kim Bum's character makes in the end. It felt like a last minute tacked on thing just to give the drama it's last OMG moment. But even still with that, everything turns out fine in the end, so it's minor and it certainly didn't ruin it for me. Some people may think the ending was interpretable, but I don't think so at all.
Acting was absolutely fantastic. I was blown away by Song Hye Kyo's acting, she was so great. Zo In Sung too.
OST is also fantastic. Only 5 songs though, but can't stop listening to Winter Love by The One, such a powerful song.
All in all, a great drama. Great beginning, and great ending. Completed about 50 Kdramas now, and this one definitely enters my top 3.

Story: Sometimes it was a bit difficult to keep up with the story or I'd be a bit confused because sometimes they didn't show you everything until later. It was pretty sad, even during the sweet and happy moments. I was hooked from the first episode though.

Acting/Cast: I can't imagine anyone doing these characters any better. I can't think of much to say because all of the characters were portrayed perfectly read more by the actors. ^^

Music: The music really matched the visuals of the drama and the songs were all amazing.

Rewatch Value: I wanted to start rewatching it before I finished it!

Basically, you should really watch this drama. It was shot beautifully and the story and acting is phenomenal. Definitely my favorite one to date.

Its theme on gangster, love, lies and hurt and "softees" of supposedly hard core men...

    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"

    At first it was great and I couldn't stop watching but soon it somehow started getting boring... The plot was good but it lacked something and I didn't really like Oh Young.
