This is a typical Korean Melodrama which means that a family wealth is at stake, and that there are characters willing to do impossibly evil things to attain that wealth. And then there are the victims of whom the main one, Han Yoo-jung, suffers so much that I think the writers themselves had a hard time trying to resolve the situation. It's the reason the comic relief provided by the romances of read more Moo-yeol's aunt and mother with their respective beaus works out well; it balances the pain and misery felt by Yoo-jung.

As melodramas go, _Passionate Love_is actually brief at 47 episodes. If you can tolerate the usual, well intended stupid things the heroes will do and the usual, unbelievable, underhanded evil the villains will get away with, you'll like the drama despite the hurried ending, which wrapped things up a little too neatly. In fact, I felt that the shortened ending was actually good for the drama. The thought of Han Yoo-jung stewing in her hate and wallowing in her pain and misery because she is too good to take justice into her own hands was just too much to take.

First, the cut short ending was totally disappointing. I know it isn't conventional, but I liked the "bad guy" and to end the story with out total resolution for his character makes me angry. In my mind they left several unresolved issues. I have a great ending to this drama in my mind.
Second, there were a lot of extra unnecessary characters and dialogue where the obvious story is repeated.
Third, nevermind...this read more list will just get too long.
There are some good things that kept me interested, but I'm still disappointed. A rating of 6 may be too high.

The acting is ok. Jun Kwang Ryul as Moon Doo stole the show.

The music is ok.

I won't rewatch this.

I don't recommend this drama unless you have a good imagination.

The rich guy who has both the looks and wealth, who seems to have it all on the outside but grows up with family issues falls in love with a girl who is the opposite.

    I accidentally started watching this drama (mixed the titles), but I decided to keep going because of Choi Yoon Young.

    i've watched it but i have to give this drama a big NO. nothing exciting. where's the passion? (passionate love / madly in love). absurd !
    something must be completed once started. so I've seen all those 47 episodes. it was my decision. But over these 47 episodes I have seen nothing exciting. poor story, zero passion and chemistry , a sick and forced love and an end without logic.

      Yeah I don't know what the writer's were thinking when they named it Passionate Love.

    Like a few other said it before - For me this one goes on hold. The storyline just seemed too dragged out & the acting couldn't really make up for this (in my case). Even the typical characteristics of Korean dramas these days felt over the top within this one, so goodbye for now~

      Yeah that's what I did with this drama as well watched the first 10 and then took a break. But now I started it up again and for some reason it got really good for me to continue. Not sure when I'll stop. I only started it up again because I didn't want to start something new.

    I think the best part of this drama was the OST. I just loved it.<3 I suggest, to at least check that out.

    ***I Want To Go Back by Sojin(Girl's Day)
    ***It's You by Lee Ji Soo
    ***Burn by Insooni

    I can't recommend the drama really. I do think most of the actors did a nice job with what they were given but, I am glad it is over.

      "Burn" is a great song, isn't it? I've been listening to it once every hour since I found out what it was and who it was by. LOL.

      Burn is the ONLY thing I liked about this drama, so much that I had to go find it.

    Who changed back to 50 episodes? This drama ends next sunday, with episode 47.

      I can't find the sources right now, but I'm almost 100% sure there will be only 47 eps. The cast has been posting stuff online saying it's the final week, saying goodbye etc.

      Is this really so bad? I stopped watching after episode 20.

      @Rika217: it's ridiculous at this point. The second half of the drama has been a mess (a little bit after you stopped), but I just finished episode 43 and... I find pretty much everything ridiculous.
