Jung Yi-hyun is a genius, but she suffers from psychogenic amnesia and does not remember her husband and young daughter. Hong Gyung-doo is uneducated and poor, but he's a loving father to young Hae-deum, who's inherited her genius from her mother. Yi-hyun and Gyung-doo met just as both were on the brink of suicide, and they'd decided to choose life together. The drama is about Yi-hyun's journey to putting together the pieces read moreof her lost memory with her husband's help, a man who seems completely unsuited for her.

Although I wanted to slap the lead female throughout the drama, I was also totally shipping for her to recover her memories and family,so by the end of the drama I was fairly satisfied hence the 9/10 instead of 10.

If not going to waste my saliva or fatigued my fingers on the issue , but if you feel that you must overlooked this drama because someone may had badmouth it or read more a reviewer did not give it a high enough grade, then you should not blame anyone else but yourself for missing out on a true uniquely almost gem drama.

I have my "gringe" with this drama hence I did not give it a higher note, but if you really want to see great acting it's a must see, especially from the older cast, they had me totally hooked, same with the younger version is seems as the western standard for acting his going down the toilet, great germ are emanating from the east.

Acting aside the reason this drama should not be pass over is probably because of the message that is conveyed a simply touching and adorable story. With a powerful message of forgiveness.

So if you want to watch a drama that is fairly well acted and fairly wonderfully written then this must be your pick.

    i am kinda lost, normally this kind of drama i would be addicted to it after 5minutes but somehow after 2episodes i dont feel it! i hope it is not just what happened the last ten years i hope its more whats going to happen from now on. i hope the main lead doest act thaat dumb anymore its just pitiful.
    i skipped in episode 2 a lot what i normally not do. i hope its going to pace up a bit and will show me a family reunion.
    i dont give up yet so fighting to myself

      He is just a plus, but in general, the drama is very touching. I personally enjoyed it a lot and finished it within two days ^^

    Already after 5 episodes this seems exactly my kind of drama. Hope the same feeling lasts until the end. The male lead is same style as in That Fool and You Are My Sunshine: uneducated, not wealthy, silly but still so good-hearted and lovable. So far the story is quite mysterious too but like someone mentioned 19 vs. 29 it might be similar. Still loving this drama!

    Kal So Won is probably the best young actress I've seen, she's really amazing!

      I don't think so. Memory loss is a common theme in drama (Winter Sonata, Boys over flowers...). And 19 vs 29 is a comedy showing the love between the couple whereas Birth secret shows more actual family problem like shared parenting. I think this drama reflects some problems of the real life.

      Yi Hyun is supposed to be a genius, but she acts so dumb at times.
