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 watched this drama so long ago but still see the same comments about Jung Eum's character being stupid....honestly though if anyone has been head over heels in love they would be willing to do the same thing she did...and sorry to say if you don't feel that way then those people have never been IN love with anybody. Loving someone and being IN love are two completely different things. Yes she made some idiotic mistakes but that does not make her stupid, it makes her human just like any other girl who fell for the bad boy and did anything for them. She learned her lesson the hard way and still kept her head held high. This is just my opinion, people can still disagree but dang... if dramas were completely realistic nobody would be watching them.

    I couldn't finish this drama. I found the storyline subpar. I started because of Ji Sung, but even my love for him couldn't make me finish it. I guess I'm just not a fan of KDs that make the woman complete idiots.

      I'll give it a chance again after watching several rom coms. I guess it's because I was watching severals melodramas then tried to watch this. :)

    10/10...definitely one of my top 3,I watched Secret after KMHM,and I finished it in 2days,for me Secret was way better than KMHM,KMHM got boring towards the end but in my opinion Secret is one of those few dramas that never get boring,Ji Sung is amazing as always and for Hwang Jung Eum,I hated her in she was pretty,I didn't like her in KMHM but I loved her in Secret,she did a great job,obviously comedy isn't her thing...

      I love Secret too (and probably better than KMHM) but I just want to totally disagree about comedy not being Hwang Jung Eum's thing, she was awesome. >_<

    It was a good drama, I guess. Maybe since I'm not a melodrama fan that I didn't enjoy it as much? There was so much angst and suspense that I expected the ending to be better. The ending wasn't satisfying to me.

    This drama is good... but kind of overkill on the dramatic and suspense atmosphere. Once you calm down on the adrenaline rush you'll forget alot of the things that happened in this drama (like me). I'm trying to recall the content of this drama which i finished only 1.5months ago, and I can't remember that much <.< Beside mental anguish and a healthy amount of angst.

    I first watched the 1 st episode back in 2013 and I dropped it. But then by chance I found a MV on this and decided to start watching again. I usually don't like melodramas - but this one is worth it! Obsessive desire, and complex personalities - great mature drama

    This drama looks absolutely stunning.
    Hwang Jung-Eum is wonderful in the lead role. For the rest of the cast, I was
    impressed by Jung Soo-Young. I'm not sure why I didn't rate this even higher, because it was a good story. It is a serious drama for the most part, but doesn't skimp on humour entirely. Perhaps it had a lack of really good characters.

      I'm not sure why this drama is so popular. The storyline is outrageous. I gave it a chance because of Ji Sung, but I feel like I've just wasted so many hours of my life.

    THE BEST MELODRAMA EVER! it was one hell of a ride watching this drama! i cried buckets! the actors are amazing all if them.

    Probably this drama can also have an alternate title, Obsession. Min Hyuk was obsessed with seeking revenge and tormenting Yoo Jung earlier on, and later half of the drama he was just obsessed with her, all the stalking and controlling. But I LOVE IT. I just love the hardcore-ness and how dark this drama was.
