This was an average show with many many plot twists, bad music, bad acting and extremely unrealistic storytelling. But still, there was something that gave me the feels. I can say I enjoyed the mess. I often watched this show while cooking or doing something else, all important moments got repeated countless times so even if you miss a few episodes you won't miss anything.

If you can get past the woman read more hating in the beginning you will be awarded in the end. Good wins and bad gets to learn the lesson + a chance to redeem itself. No matter how I hated the baddies they were often the most interesting to watch and they were the ones who drove the plot forward. But God did I hate them, they made my blood boil and one of the reasons why I finished this drama was to see them suffer. The show gets boring at some point but there is always something refreshing happening all the time, never mind it's unrealistic and stupid. Just don't take this show too seriously.

Even though there was enough time to tie all loose ends some things were not explained properly. Anyway, the ending was decent no less. Personally I was a bit disappointed with the pairing, probably I am the only one who wished Hana to end up with that other guy.

Cross dressing girl in historical settings. Like in Hana there is whole lot of drama and adventure.

This show is also about a girl who dresses up as a guy to fulfill her dream and that's actually the only thing in common between the shows. If you like gender bender try this out. There is way less drama and more comedy.

    Has anyone done proper English subs for the entire series? At DramaFire and DramaCool the English subs from about episode 60 onwards are just slightly better than gibberish... :( It looks like the Korean subs were just plugged into Google translate, and I'm having a really tough time trying to decipher it. Please let me know if there are better English subs somewhere out there, or if someone is maybe planning to fix them?

    EDIT: After doing some more spot-checking of episodes, it looks like the English subs start going "bad" at episode 40, and then around episode 60-ish they devolve into not-quite-gibberish. :(

    This drama is so interesting! But my gosh, the evil second wife and grandmother are so hateful! Every time I see them on screen I just want to give them both a good slap

    I really really love this show, I attached to Jang Hana, Seol DoHyun and Han YooChan characters. Since this is a long drama, I skipped through the first few episodes of younger version and when Hana is facing unfairness. This has 120 episodes, but the villains don't always win and it's good to watch fighting between Hana and evil brother and sister. I recommend people to watch if you tend to like family drama. But this drama got me hooked. Park HanByul is really pretty in this drama while Han Yoochan is a very manly and considerate guy for Hana.

    The writing was just bad and so was much of the acting, especially on the part of lead, Park Han Byul. However, after suspending all logic and reasoning, and accepting that the plot is ridiculous and contrived, I found this drama to be highly entertaining. It ended well,and that counts for a lot, especially after sitting through so many episodes.

    I only watched 2 episodes of this drama but it was enough for me to give up. This drama is is so degrading for women. The president regard his bride only as childbearing machine and doesn't give importance to her or his granddaughters as individuals. Is it that important to bear a male child? This mentality is killing me. I want to beat those scriptwriters:)

      Yes I hope it is not like that in real life:) One question for you, although I stopped watching it I was wondering from which episode romantic relationships between Jang Seung and other characters start? ^^

      Well Korea like all Confucian societies and other cultures place importance on male kids.They support the aging parents and continue the family name.
