I am actually glad this drama is over, I would really not survive if it got more extension.

This drama started magically, I mean it, when I watching the first 2 episodes I was weeping from the cuteness ad genius acting of the child actors. It will be very rude of me not to mention that I fell for Yeo JinGoo... totally and forever. That boy is not acting, he is actually read more living every damn second of his role. There are so many moments I would like to highlight in his acting, but this particular part I must write here: the part when we are shown the children holding each other's bloody hands and their faces were shown so scared and alarmed, and then suddenly the separation of hands... and JongWoo's face at the scene in front of his eyes... I was honestly hyperventilating from tears, as I couldn't take the beauty and genius acting, but at the same time the heaviness of the scene... one of the most memorable scenes in my dramalife.

As I discovered throughout this drama, I am not a fan of melodramas and get bored or long revenge stories, I, of course, kept coming back, as the acting, the set-up, the aura of the drama were dragging me in (tell me, if you were me, would you be so cold hearted and leave Yoochun and Yoo SeungHo hanging? you wouldn't, especially when they were doing a great job).

I must say Yoochun's JongWoo is a really great character, whom I came to love with all my heart. And the interesting fact I noted, that Yoochun had paid a lot of attention how Yoo JinGoo had played JongWoo, and was actually not creating an adult version, but continuing from where JinGoo had left JongWoo. And I really admire that fact, that made me love Yoochun more as a n actor. I must say this is his best role yet.
Can't say anything more than neutral about adult SooYeon, though I love-love-love Yoon EunHee, her SooYeon was boring to me, I saw strength in her only in the last episode for a couple of minutes, the other times, she was either supported either by Harry, or JongWoo... nothing like her child version who went after the boy she loved and got kidnapped with him.
I cannot also leave SeungHo's Harry. Though, of course, not my favourite character in the drama (duh), he did a splendid job! There was not a second I didn't believe his Harry, not a single tear, which went unnoticed, bravo~

The music was ok, nothing to scream about, I have downloaded only one song from the OST, which is rare for me, well, MBC can't create awesome OSTs every time...

About rewatch value... I'll come back, I think, BUT only for the first 3 episodes and the last part of the last episode... I am done with it.

I remember trying to watch this drama back in 2012 when it started airing. Back then, it seemed too depressing for me and I kept it on-hold ever since. Picking up this drama again after such a long time is one of the best decisions I ever made. This drama now goes straight to my favourites list (*the list keeps on getting longer*).

I have noticed how this drama is not received read more well with a lot of people. I can understand why. It's got to be one of the most depressing dramas ever. 'Missing You' falls in more of a makjang-tastic melodrama genre which could have gone wrong. For me, of course, this drama worked very well. I loved the whole plot and enjoyed every character in it.

I am usually critical of tragedy being used as a cheap means to get the plot moving. Often, including tragedy is seen as convenient for Kdrama writers when they want to create the 'shock effect' in the viewer. What sets this drama apart from so many others is how tragedy is used as a base here instead of some random, bang-up scenario. It makes room for rest of the plot to build up, leaving scope for a lot of plot development and some amazing character development- which is commendable.

The sad parts of the drama are so wonderfully done (especially the childhood parts) that they will remain in my memory for a long time. They are touching and were successful in moving me. Even the sub-plots are very interesting, including the romance.

I loved how even though a lot of bad stuff happened to its characters, they were able to bear with it. That shows us how there's hope even in the darkest of the times. Okay, I know I am making it sound like some sadistic, boring drama but it is not. It is both beautiful and poignant in many ways. It had a nice pacing and many interesting sides to it.

The cast gave stellar performances. I believe this was Yoon Eun Hye and Park Youchun's best role till date. Although I am not the biggest fan of Youchun's acting, he impressed me here. His chemistry with Yoon Eun Hye was very good and believable to me. Apart from that the child actors were TERRIFIC- especially Kim So Hyun. When she suffered, I got the goosebumps. It was that great! Kudos to the director for making it seem so real.

The OST of this drama is terrific. I recommend every one to listen to it.

Overall, this drama is a whole package with a memorable cast, a touching story, lots of tears, lots of love and a solid soundtrack. Though it doesn't have a very high rewatch value, I won't mind rewatching my favourite scenes between the main leads.

Recommended to fans of melodramas and sad stories with good endings. :)

Totally not the same, but both are melodramas with bullies, murder, and mysterious pasts in their plots. Both have Kim So Hyun in them, and she's always fun to watch. Truly talented young lady. Missing you is a lot darker and bolder but both are super interesting and hard to put down.
Recommended by Chappelle
Both are revenge dramas, and both deal with very mature subject matter. Qoa, death of a child, missing you deals with rape and other really touchy issues.

    I dropped Missing You because Yoo Seung Ho became the villain amidst all his suffering. :-( Yes, it was ridiculous of me but I couldn't bear to see him suffer more in Missing You. And I hated Yoon Eun Hye because of that. :-(

    But I guess, those who are not YSH addicts will like it somehow.

    I enjoyed watching this drama alot, but I must say the best episodes were the first ones when the child actors played, the adult actors did well too, but without the child actors, my rating would have gone so much lower. Anyway I gave it a 8.5/10.

    I completed this drama long ago, but the more I look at my drama list the more I am confused with how I manage to finish it. I don't waste my time with dramas that I don't enjoy. The dramas I dropped are better than this one. Eun Hye is so damn annoying, but I liked Yoo Chun and Seung Ho and they are the only reason why this drama is on my complete dramas list, but still I wonder how... 21 hours... God...

    The start was great. No doubt.
    Then... Everything that built up in the first few episodes just crumbled into nothing.
    After watching "Innocent Man", I thought this was going to have the same effect on me, but no... It didn't.
    ...
    So, not that great after all.

    The look on her face when he pulled that Usain Bolt. I re-watched that several times. I would've have been so pissed. Just hilarious.

    Great pacing of plot
    Great and believable acting
    Nice ost, esp soundtrack


    A different take of romance, it made me feel the pain of the herroines. I'd say a must watch if you're into sad shows - do not miss this.

    This show was great, but man was it depressing and sad about 95% of the time. The characters were all potrayed really well by the actors and actresses. I watched this show after watching Coffee Prince a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to see more of Yoon EunHye since I enjoyed her character in Coffee Prince. Two completely different roles and both done flawlessly.

    I watched it for Park Yoochun. He didn't disappoint me, but I found Yoo Seung Ho's character more interesting.
    Too much melodrama/violence/misfortune for my taste, but if you are an amateur of the genre, you may like this one.
    Nice OST.
