I typically avoid Melodramas like the plague, I live in utter fear of their endings. I am a girl who likes nice pretty bows on her endings and lots of love and laughter along the way. All of that being said, Missing You completely blew me away. I started it two weeks ago, thinking it usually takes me a good week to finish a drama, so by the time I finished what read more had aired, the new episodes would be up. Of course, it was impossible to stop watching this show. I had all 17 aired episodes done in 2 days, and then they decided to extend the show and my torture for one more week. While I hated waiting, I am so glad they did! For me, this drama was just absolutely perfect.

That perfection lays heavily on all of the actors in it. There wasn't a single actor who wasn't phenomenal, the kid actors especially. And while I seriously worry about the hydration needs of the actors, their ability to have me crying right along with them every single time was just amazing. Even the supporting cast was superb, especially Jung Woo's partner/wife and Soo Yeon's mother. Her scenes were some of the most emotional and the actress deserves extreme props for pulling it off the way she did.

This story is definitely not all puppies and rainbows, it gets amazingly sad and intense and you will want to shake the characters back into their senses on more than one occasion. I wanted so much to hate Harry, especially after the incident with the can, but my heart just broke for him over and over again. As it did for so many of the other characters.

Your heart will feel like it's been put throug a wringer by the time you finish it, but it's an emotional roller coaster you seriously don't want to miss. And for all of the sadness and heartbreak, there is a lot of happy and cute moments. It's a group of people that you just want everything in the world to go right for them, but people and situations just keep getting in the way.

If you want something that will keep you on the edge of your seat and truly make you fall in love with fictional characters, then I definitely recommend you pick this one up ASAP. You won't regret it!

This is probably my first true melodrama and I must say it blew my mind! The entire production was excellent from start to finish and makes me want to hunt for me dramas of this calibre. I find a major problem with Korean Dramas is the tendency for the story to drag about midway, with too many filler episodes and zero story progression. Even some of my favourites are guilty of this, read more but Missing You manages to overcome this problem as every episode there are revelations or twists which advance both the story and the characters.

On that note, the story here is fantastic. Sure, it is fairly heavy, with betrayal, kidnapping, sexual abuse, gangsters and murder all featuring at one point or another but this is accompanied by many lighthearted moments, especially in the earlier episodes set in the past. The first four episodes were outstanding, and when the story moved on to the present it kept up for the entire 21 episodes.

This drama quite possibly has one of the best casts I have ever seen. Yeo Jin Goo and Kim So Hyun as the young Han Jung Woo and Lee Soo Yeon were perfect, maybe the best child actors at the moment? They were both innocent and cute, yet heartbreakingly tragic, and after episode 3 (if you've seen it, you know what I'm referring to) I was stunned at how well they acted some incredibly emotional and confronting scenes. Park Yoochun and Yoon Eue Hye as the adult Han Jung Woo and Lee Soo Yeon were also excellent, proving they can both do comedy as well as serious drama. Yoo Seung Ho, however, is the stand out here as he tackles the incredibly hard role of our anti-hero Kang Hyung Joon, a villain who we also pity and at times understand. I look forward to seeing him in other dramas from here on. The supporting cast should not be forgotten, they were all fantastic in their various roles.

The music played a large part in making this drama so effective. The main track, Tears Are Falling by Wax, is probably one of the best drama tracks I have heard and probably caused this viewer to cry more times than I'd happily admit. The score as well was fantastic.

So why do I give a rewatch value of 5 when I'm raving about this drama? It is heavy, and at times draining to watch, the constant sadness, especially earlier on is tough, and some episodes were spent watching through blurry eyes. This is a drama I probably will watch again eventually, but not anytime to soon, the recovery period is quite long.

Overall, however, this drama is fantastic in every way. The story, about lost love amidst a world of murder and scheming, is told beautifully through the actors, music, direction and cinematography. By the end we have been through a huge emotional rollercoaster, and although some may not like the ending, which is both uplifting and tragic, one can't deny this show has a lot going for it.

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

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.

    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.

    Dramas' with their accidental kisses are hilarious.

    Seung Ho definitely made this drama worth watching. I put this drama on my list to watch because of Yoo Chun but Seung Ho really has skills.

    the greatest riddle in this drama was the instrumental backsound soundtrack... Then, I knew it! Lara Fabian - "Adagio"!!!!!!! The lyrics just exactly the point of this drama! #amazing
