One of the best melodrama I've ever seen and also one of the best dramas period. To be honest when I first started watching it, I dropped it at the first episode because it bored me, but then I tried it again after reading the reviews and right then and there I was hooked. I pretty much finished in 2 days and didnt even skip a second of it. Everything about this read more drama is perfect, from the cast to the acting, to the story, the romance and the chemistry between the leads were incredible Hwang jung eum's acting was on a different level. I actually cried every time she cried. (lots of crying in this one) That was how convincing she was. Ji sung was amazing too but I feel like his talent is showing more on KMHM. In the end of it all, this drama broke me into little tiny pieces but I will never regret watching it and re-watching it over and over again.

Oh my this ONE abused the sht out of my heart!

The acting was amazing. There was so much crying, but each one never lost its value.

It was a btch to get through since most the story was so sad, but I suggest you don't watch it in such a narrow minded view. Put yourself in each characters point of view and try to understand each one because for me that's read more what made it bearable.

I finished the series in 2 days because I felt so bad for KYJ and I was just eagerly just waiting for her to do her quirky adorable laugh. I really hate sad dramas, but I got a much greater "feel good moment" effect from the little bits and pieces of happiness in this drama then a drama dedicated completely for "feel good moments".

I fell in love with the main couple. Look at my list I usually drop as soon as the main couple gets together but on this one I kept going because I actually wanted them to get closer and closer. To me their love was believable and on episode 15 their was a moment I even cried out of jealously because it is the kind of pure love I truly want.( you will understand when you get there)

What I also liked about this was the deaths weren't just some random conveniently timed events. Each one had a purpose and were connected. We didn't the moments where a character finds something out, and right then they die that usually happens from a out of the blue car accident.. Like that sht makes me go CRAZY!

Re watch value of me was low because I don't think my heart can handle it lol.

The plot is quite similar based on revenge and how the guy falls in love to the lady who he thinks killed his fiance.
Recommended by makeuptemple
Both have similar vibes with the storyline of Ji Sung is trying to find justice for his lost lover/wife. Both are fantastic and if you like one you would like the other.

    I just re-watched this and the chemistry between Hwang Jung Eum and Ji Sung is pure magic. They need to work together again.

    First few episodes were boring, but all in all pretty damn good. Finally started to like Ji Sung...He was just really something here.

      it was a good and realistic drama, but the twist (when he got feelings for her) was a little too fast and unexpected. But still a good drama :)

    Can someone please tell me, (I haven't even started this yet because it scares me) how bad is the main guy abusing the female lead, and for how long? I've been told that this is pretty intense, I'd like to see it for the actors, but the plot scares me, a lot. o.O

      He isn't abusing her (he's not violent) but her struggle (because of him) last for around 5 episodes (I've watched a long time ago) and it IS pretty intense...If you only watch it for the actors and can't stand melodrama, don't start it... If you can, it's a masterpiece :)

      I adore melodrama, I'm just scared to see a male lead abuse the female lead - I can take violence too, but seeing a character that's supposed to be a love-interest continuously hurt the other character gives me the creeps. xD So, if the most horrible part (for my emotions lol) lasts about about 5 episodes... I think I can do that. :D Thanks for replying. :)

    This is (mainly) not a feel-good romance, so it's not for everyone. I personally really liked the first half of the drama, but I would of loved to see some more character development for the main female character. I couldn't stand the fact that she's so continuously accepting of the way they treat her. For me it's a 6.5/10. You should still give it a try. Good cast with great acting and a decent overall plot.

    I marathoned this drama. I should watch melodrama more often - they're fun! I think the main lead actors are not only talented (first time watching Ji Sung) but they had great chemistry too. However as many have said, the roughness rubbed me the wrong way...Also, why is it that cheating is easily accepted if it follows the main ship? Overall, I enjoyed this drama. :) Kill Me Heal Me is on my list.

    disturbing story, yet so engaging. the romance is certainly for not young age. it has level of sadist-masochist relationship in emotional way. it has opera-soap vibe that makes you want to drop the show sometime but you just can't. cause you really want to know what happen to the villain and the heroine.

    This was such a good drama, each episode made me want to keep watching, so I binged watched it in a day and a half. Hwang Jung Eum was amazing as always. I've seen her in 'She was pretty' and 'Lucky romance'.
