I watched this drama because of Do Jin Hoo who I fell in love with in Goong. However, in this drama, he is a far cry from the sexy prince in Goong. It's just that once you've seen him as a prince in Goong, you are spoiled forever. To be fair, Jin Hoo played the character correctly, which is a kind of shy, geeky guy. His acting was very good, however, I read more didn't really fall in love with his character. Too much crying for a guy. The drama overall was good. I was hooked from the start, got angry a lot and was emotionally moved a lot. Shows you how unfair life can be and how bad things can happen even to good people. The little girls and even teenage girls playing the rolls of the actors & actress when they were young did a phenomenal job. Made me wish I could see more of them. The villain female in this drama, did all kinds of mean and evil things and did get caught eventually during the drama (didn't have to wait to the end) and that made me really happy. The problem I feel with this drama was the romance between the main roles and of course the ending which a lot of people complained about. As they say, "I did't feel the love". So good as this drama was, I probably would not rewatch it. But first timers should catch it.

I liked the story, I liked the actors, I can't complain about the music though it wasn't that memorable, I would never watch it again, although overall the drama was fine. The second female lead annoyed me as much as she was supposed to, and I found both male leads good. The story was really interesting to me, and made me always really anxious to see the next episode. This was the read more first drama where I've been so eager to see the next episode that I have watched it raw and understood only a word from here and there, but still been satisfied since I've seen the episode as soon as I could. I liked it so much that I kept talking about it and wondering what would happen next. My roomie was so fed up with me constantly talking about the show, but I just couldn't keep it in. I was insanely hooked it for the time it was airing, but in the end I don't think it was time well spent.

I really wanted to love this drama overall, the main female lead is one of my favourite actresses and the male lead is very cute, the story was very intriguing, but in the end I was as disappointed as one can be. I really don't even understand how can an ending disappoint me that much. It was like I've been promised something magnificent and ended up with nothing but disappointment. I've been used to that in real life, but in dramaland I can't stand that kind of bullshit. Haha. I know life isn't about revenge, but I think it's foolish to let criminals run free just because you're related or you're just so good-hearted person. I want justice served even in some level, but in this drama it's just like you let the dog that devoured your lovely left arm run free, just because he's your beloved pet whom you love way too much to keep him disciplined. Well, I don't know if my comparison is that accurate, but as I've been ranting, I was so madly disappointed about the ending that I have to try to share the pain even by some crazy metaphors.

When I rate a drama, I think the ending is the most crucial thing, since that defines the feeling I am left with. In this drama's case it was nothing but disappointment, but because I was so into it till the last few episodes I'd still give it a 7. And I am being generous.

Should you watch it? Well, if you think that family comes always first and you have a heart that forgives everything, then go ahead. Or if you don't think that the ending matters that much afterall. This drama has its moments, it's good and keeps you hooked especially if you like the actors and romance that develops slowly. I personally loved it. And then came the ending and ruined this drama for me forever.

Her Legend is about making bags while Come Jang Bori is about hanboks...both are Makjang dramas where the 2nd lead tries to take the female leads place in her family & tries every trick to win over her talent...the male lead in both is the playful heir who's always their to rescue the female lead!

    It has a lot of potential in the beginning. I even raised my expectations on how wonderful it might end. But what a total dissapointment. A mediocre drama. tssk. -.-

    Is this show worth watching because looking at the reviews it looks awful. The re-watch value is 1 and 3. Is this another Fashion King disaster because I don't want to go through that again.

      Now you know how I felt. I wondered what the Korean Drama critics or the koreans has to say about this after it was aired in their country.

    Having seen a bit more than half I must say it's very interesting to see what will happen next. However I dont like the main character never standing up for herself, never realizing how messed up others are, and always being overly kind.. I hope this doesn't have some ending where she forgives and forgets everything, hate those endings

      Jun_ the ending is exactly what you hope that should not have happened. I would love to read your comment again AFTER you watched this. I am pretty sure you will be @#&%*!! Good Luck watching this drama.

    I enjoyed this, but the ending was a bit disappointing. It felt rushed, unfinished and unfair. I know Jung Soo's love for designing bags was a big part of this storyline, but what the heck happened with her relationship w/ Ahjumma?? I wanted to see more like a flash forward into the future or something ..

    BAD, BAD, BAD! This show had so much potential but WHAT HAPPENED? No chemistry between the leads, could you really tell how they fell in love? The bad people, acting was great but YOU CALL THAT PUNISHMENT? A complete waste of 20 hours. This is the first drama I have ever felt this way about.

    This Drama had potential, before they decided to turn it into a all seen before and once again they prove to me that I seriously need a vacation from K-dramas and it's villains that always get away with everything.

    I really enjoyed this drama in the the beginning and anticipated its showing each week. However, I was really disappointed with the ending. It was such a blah ending. The actors were good and their acting was really satisfactory though some characters could have evolved more. It's still not too bad if you want a romance comedy drama to fill in your days when you are craving for one.
