I liked this drama. I love the revenge theme. The ending was totally unexpected. I kinda got mad about the end when I finished watching it but after thinking about it for a while I was ok w/ how it ended. Everything can't be sunshine & rainbows. The end gave it a more realistic feel to it, even though every1 was innocent except the mother. I just don't understand how some1 could read more be that cold toward an innocent child. Be mad at the person responsible don't take it out on kids.

Its this kind of drama that not anyone can fall for, the drama that you love so much & don't understand why its this underrated & why people not love it in the way you do, its not for a regular watch !
its a very sad melo, where non of the character happy or can be happy yet in some how you dont feel its strange, you find your self understanding read more each one of this character & keep on crying !
& I've to say the story is good, nothing new, but its good, a typical revenge drama, but they get everything wrong in the last ep, the ending is stupid !! & that what keeps this drama from getting 10 score by me, cause beside the ending its my best sorrowful drama.
To add a thing that is one of the greatest aspect of this drama : the OST ! is one of the most beautiful song I've ever heard

Same actor, same story, same vibe. Only the cast is different. Moral of the story: if you're looking for a dark, vengeful plot, always look for Kim Nam Gil.
Recommended by Nelly
Both are centred around a man out for revenge against a large corporation who wronged him in the past. They each have their romance stories as well.

    This drama surprised me as I wasn't expecting it to be so good. I was mostly anticipating a typical melodrama with a lot of makjang and self beating but it wasn't the case at all. In this story the revenge theme was extremely well thought out, refined and was focused on its psychological aspects. The twist of the story in the last few episodes was what turned the drama in a real melodrama and the ending represented its peak. I thought the acting of all the main leads was brilliant and in particular Kim Nam Gil was quite outstanding (much better than in Shark). This drama deserves to be seen as it is intriguing.

    for the record KNG had to leave for his military duty so they had to cut the drama short..kinda explains the ending.

    I'm revenge dramas fan and was told this is one of the best... I kept postponing it ever since it came out I don't why though I just wasn't interested but finally decided to watch. Though I already knew this drama will go down to hill at some point cus Kim Nam Gil had to leave for the military so they wrapped it up real fast... However I was still hoping that the story would be worth it regardless of the damage but sadly it's not the case... to me this drama went down to hill after the 5th ep, every ep then was long and boring... The only thing I liked in this drama and made me stick to it till the end is KIM NAM GIL.

    This is my first drama for KNG and he did an amazing job, I'm really mesmerized by him !! his expressions, voice, movement and gaze EVERYTHING !! he's the reason I'm going to say watch this drama... having him here means it's not a waste of time HE is worth it !!

      I'm glad I postponed it !! at least now I can see his upcoming dramas rather than falling for him and waiting 2 years for his comeback... haha lucky me I can start his new drama Shark :P

    Oh, why there's "Action" in the genres? This drama has nothing to do with action, there's no drop of action in it so it's better to delete that genre.

      I agree. Genres what describe this drama better are:
      *Melodrama: The term melodrama refers to a dramatic work that exaggerates plot and characters in order to appeal to the emotions.
      *Suspense is a feeling of pleasurable fascination and excitement mixed with apprehension, tension, and anxiety developed from an unpredictable, mysterious, and rousing source of entertainment.
      Revenge dramas are all suspence and dramas what from ep to ep make your emotions go up and down are melodramas.

    This drama had potential to become a great revenge drama but it went downhill at some point which ruined everything.

    I still loved Kim Nam Gil in this, he was flawless; his expressions, actions, words and even his smirks, it makes you go obsessed over him.
    The kind of male lead that I would like to see in every revenge drama out there.
