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.

    This is the most underrated drama in the cross dressing gender. Han Byul's acting was the best i have seen so far as a male even though she looked too pretty to be a boy(like most idols) there where no feminime mannerisms and her gaze particularly when beating her hyung in a fight had the murderous look of the typical male testosterone fight.
    So if you skipped episodes please do not say the acting/drama sucked, because that is unfair, that is the same as going to a restaurant and eating the best meal of your life and just because the dessert was not up to par you say it was the worst meal of your life. Stay healthy and cheerios ^_^

    First of all, Park Han Byul is so freaking pretty - just had to get that out of my system!! While I personally imagined a much better ending and I did skip a lot, it's definitely not the worst drama I've seen. I watched this knowing that Park Han Byul and Jung Eun Woo started dating after this drama. I love watching the chemistry of real couples on screen :)

    Note: I would recommend watching this just to see Sul Do Eun (played by Han Yoo Yi). She is one of THE BEST characters I've ever seen - and if you look at my dramalist you'd know I've seen a lot. I looked forward to each episode just to see what she would do (or wear!) next. Seriously the reason why my rating was rather high for this drama. chemi-couple ftw. In fact, even if you don't watch the whole drama, just watch the parts with her!

    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. :(

      Yeah, I'm really not sure what's up with this. I've never seen English subs this bad before. It seems that whoever picked up the series for translation at that point doesn't quite understand English and proper sentence structure. It's really, really weird... I've tried to watch several episodes past that point, to see if I can get used to it, but I just can't. Such a shame too, because I've been loving this series so far, but just can't enjoy it anymore because of this. Hopefully someone else will re-do the subs, or perhaps the person who did these will turn their subs over to someone else to fix them. *crosses fingers*

      I am downloading this drama from Asiatorrents it says the subs are from OneTVAsia are those same ones you are talking about being bad/gibberish after ep 40? Please let me know as I don't want to download this drama if that is the case.

      I'm sorry Rosie, I have no idea who did the subs. Usually, subbers will include their name, website, or email, etc., in the subs, at the beginning and/or end of an episode. But these episodes don't have any info at all, with the exception of the ones I downloaded from DramaFire. They have "" at the beginning of the episodes, but I think that's just because they did the encoding, not the actual subbing. Same with the ones from DramaCool...they have their logo on all the episodes uploaded at their site. But neither one of those sites includes any information on the series page about who did the subbing. I think the only way to find out would be to contact them directly and ask where they got the subs from.

      You're welcome! And I'm SO glad to hear there are proper subs for the whole series! But unfortunately, I can't use torrents... Do you know if these (done by OneTVAsia) are available anywhere as regular downloads?

    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.
