This drama was quite refreshing and beautiful. I'm not really talking about the story. I mean, it was a typical love story, predictable at most points (although there were some shockers thrown in too). What I'm actually talking about is the amazing cinematography and the beautiful locales where this was shot. Everything was simply breath-taking from the wardrobe to the snowy mountains. Another plus point was the way Oh Soo's character was read more played out. I liked all the characters and everyone acted well but it was Oh Soo who made me cry and relieved and sad and sympathetic and at times, even gave me goosebumps. It was nice seeing Song Hye Kyo after the long gap and she was here usual best. Eun Ji and Kim Bum made a very cute couple. Kim Bum has become one of my all time favorite side-kicks. As for Eun ji, I really want to see her in another center role now. I mean, she was great in this but she deserves more lead roles. I guess she's my forever-bias after Reply 1997 :)

So I will prolly be all hated on for my opinion about this drama, but OH WELL!

I loved the story. It was rly good. My only prob was a w/ certain character. I watched the movie of this story so I had certain expectations. And, it's not that they weren't filled to a certain degree. I just have issues w/ how the writers made Oh Young revert back into a depressive read more state that she was clearly out of, and made her seem weak when she had been strong for so long. I mean I totally get where she was coming from. Total trauma that started from childhood, but come on rly! Did they have to go that far w/ her character & then the total reversal again in the last episode. I'm like WHAT??? Serial pick a personality for the character & stick w/ it. At least they did that in the movie.

Now that I got that out of my system...

The rest of the drama was totally daebak. I loved the way they had Jin Sung do something he was totally against in the end. That part was much better than the movie. Oh Soo was the best character of them all w/ his own complex of abandonment. The flow of the drama was good. I didn't feel rushed at all. I was kinda upset about Moo Cheol's character, but I understand y they wrote his part that way. He was like a guardian angel that no1 knew was there. The whole combination of actors was great b/c they had such a great chemistry. The anger, brotherhood, love, romance, etc. was all there & I was never left w/ a feeling of uninterest. I was always anticipating the next episode. I was interested to see how each situation would play out; even though I alrdy knew the story b/c I watched the movie.

I suggest that MDL-er's give this drama a try. It is exciting to watch. ENJOY!

Both dramas involve a main male lead who is poor and who deceives the female lead for greed and personal gain.

    Love this drama except for the ending ( sorry I am a sucker for sad ending) Jo In Sung was awesome as were all his previous roles but this is the first time I like Song Hye Kyo in a drama. Made me cried buckets , beautiful scenery and great OST too.

    Loved the drama all thoughout but the ending seemed out of place. Altough I'm usually a sucker for those types of endings, I really wish they would have gone with a different one.

    I am not sure what to say about this drama, besides that I loved the actors chemistry and that's the thing that kept me going when the plot didn't make sense at all. Also, does anyone as some theories about that ending? For the love of Korean dramas' gods, I'm still processing it!

    My ultimate Kdrama OTP <3 This was the first and only Kdrama I became so addicted to that I would watch the episodes without subs. The chemistry between the leads is so intense.

    The plot wasn't that good (Lol is there even a plot development after the build-up of the premise?) but I watched this for Jo In-Sung and Song Hye-Gyo - their acting was well done and they are pleasing for the eyes to look at to lol XD I love Jo In-Sung's acting and spectacular winter wardrobe in this drama~
