I had moderate expectations for this one, because 1) the story seemed interesting, and 2) I’ve always wanted to see Yoo Seung Ho and his mad acting skills. The fact that my favorite child actor Yeo Jin Goo even played the younger Jung-woo was a bonus for me.

This drama had a really brilliant start. The conflicts were well-defined, the storyline seemed to have a clear direction, and the kids were so read more amazing. But somewhere along the way, the greatly established conflicts didn’t feel so great anymore, and the storyline seemed confused about which way it should go. Also, there were characters that could have been explored more. For example, what happened to Eun-joo exactly? Wasn’t she supposed to be the second female lead? The drama was so focused on the love triangle and the revenge when in fact; there were other interesting conflicts to deal with. On top of it all, the adults weren’t as amazing as the kids. I did enjoy watching the adults for a while, but as time went by, I suddenly lost the desire to watch this drama. I would have stopped watching if not for Yoo Seung Ho’s stellar acting. He is indeed one hell of an actor. Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye are “good” actors, but they fail to deliver the heartfelt emotions I’m looking for when watching a drama. Only Yoo Seung Ho, and the kids were able to deliver these emotions and moved me with their performance.

I did enjoy the music which is a mix of overdramatic and lighthearted songs. There would only be two reasons for me to make myself suffer again by rewatching this drama, and I guess they’re pretty obvious: the kids, and Yoo Seung Ho.

As a fan of melodramas, I’m kind of disappointed by this one. They made a point right from the start that this is a melodrama, and a drama is not a melodrama without tears. But seriously, there has been too much tears in this drama that it felt like it’s just one big slog of tears. It’s trying so hard to make its viewers cry, which is annoying. In my opinion, a true melodrama can make its viewers cry even without showing off the tears, right? And so I’m giving this drama a score of 7: 5 for Yoo Seung Ho and 2 for the kids, because they were totally the gems of this show.

I don't get why some ppl gave up on this drama?! I started it few days back and finally caught up with everyone and finished it today. It was really good better than what I've expected !! Let me just say this "Missing You is a drama that you'd appreciate for the acting more than the story".

Story:
it was a good melodrama not the best but it's good, at the beginning read more you would "think" the story will take on a certain path but then BAM everything changes the whole story change !! and that's what I loved the most not the story itself but the way it changed.

Acting: IT'S THE REASON I KEPT WATCHING
It was BEYOND WORDS !! I was amazed/stunned by their level of acting hmmm let's see who shall I begin with... definitely Yoo Seung Ho !! I already liked this guy but I never knew his talent could extend to that level I can't even find words good enough to praise his performance he is the BEST THING in this drama without "Harry" this drama wouldn't have been as intense and interesting. Harry is one of the best characters I have ever seen I'll never forget those expressions of his. My 2nd surprise was Micky I was never a fan of him and I never liked his acting (to those of you who think the same of him as me I think you should watch this drama cus you'll change your mind like I did) he was really amazing he showed me some really good acting skills and I enjoyed his character enjoyed watching him and I look forward to his upcoming dramas. Last but not least Yoon Eun Hye she proved that she's a talented actress she's not just good in romcom only she can pull off such a complex sad agonist character like Lee Su Yeon I praise her for that and I'm so happy she chose melo (as a first timer in this genre she did good very proud of her).

Music:
The OST's were good the songs went well with the story... my favorite one was (Just Look at You) I can't stop listening to it's a very beautiful song with beautiful lyrics.

Rewatch:
It's not a re-watchable drama even for those who re-watch stuff but I might go back and watch Harry's scenes (Yoo Seung Ho's character) yes !! that's how good he was.

Overall:
Missing You is a sad heavy drama that's true and it's not one of the best melodramas out there but it's certainly is the best in terms of acting/performance and that alone is more than enough reason for you to watch. There are many good stories out there but not so many with OUTSTANDING performance like this one not so many with unforgettable characters such as Harry he's the reason I gave this drama 8 (Can you believe the whole drama turned out to be so good solely because of Yoo Seung Ho (Harry)??) AMAZING really.

both are melodramas about complicated relationships. both about revenge and love. both very deep and sad. beautiful love stories though. amazing dramas especially if youre up for some crying
Recommended by sara_a
Both are melodramas in which the main characters first meet in their teenage years, being each other's first love, then they get separated because of some tragic events and meet again after years.

    Aaaah...I actually enjoyed this drama. I just completed it. I have been delaying because of the bad reviews but I'm glad I didn't drop it. I marathoned it and I think that help a lot in making me appreciate complexity of the drama and not get lost or lose my interest.. I was never a fan of PYC but I think he did a great job in bringing to life the person of Jung Woo. It's a melo drama (I felt sorry for YEH , the actress not her character, for all the crying she did) but you won't necessarily cry everytime they cry...so it was not depressing. I recommend people to watch it esp if they are a fan of any of the actors because they really did well.

    So almost a month and a half since starting this, I'm finally done! I actually would've finished earlier if I didn't have an exam to study for but turns out, episode 16 was the perfect place to restart! The last few episodes were really intense and I like how they structured the ending.
    Truth be told though, I probably wouldn't have started and I certainly wouldn't have finished this drama if it weren't for Yoo Seung Ho's acting. I don't know if it's the character or the actor I find so intriguing but wow, he really amazed me - just so much emotion. I have a strange interest in his character's obsession too.
    I have to give credit to Park Yoochun who's never won me in a role before this drama.
    I was initially wary of starting because it's a melodrama but to me, while there's plenty sad, I feel like it's well balanced. There's a hell of a love triangle for one thing followed by some pretty intense drama but also, quite a bit of crying - I somehow remained unmoved, even though I'm usually a sucker for anything even slightly sad.
    Really liked it!

    If I watched the trailer earlier I probably wouldn't watch the drama, because it seems boring to me. But I'm very glad that I actually decided to watch it without watching the trailer, this drama is AMAZING, one of my absolute favourites. Does anybody know anything similar? I mean involving traumas, tragedy and not necessarily a comedy.

    I remember I started this like a year ago and then after 11 episodes I put it on hold. I picked it up 2 days ago and finished it now. So glad I did it that way. It made me appreciate the drama more. The child story was amazing and then it kinda dropped when the adult cast came. But after ep. 12 or so it got good again. I'm satisfied with the ending but it could've been better (and also, worse).

    All in all I'll give this 8,5/10

      Is this TV drama any good? I soo love Yoon Eun Hye in Coffee Prince; her acting in that rom-com series is effortless yet full of emotion which is not tiring to look at

      It's good in my opinion. It drags a bit in a middle of the show but all in all it's good.
