At first going into this movie/mini-drama I thought it was going to be a lot bloodier. It's about a gangster after all! And then I realized it's not like that at all. Genuinely a good love story, I found this movie to be seriously fantastic. The acting was spot on and the characters very lovable. I really like the song they chose for the theme of this movie and how they incorporated read more it into the story in several aspects. There wasn't anything I disliked about this movie because it was seriously that good.

A beautiful, touching story.
It tells the story of a gangster, without any of the usual blood and gore. The fight sequence itself is somehow beautiful to watch.
There are just two episodes, and the story isn't in any hurry. The moods of each scene are captured very well through the visuals as well as the music, and at times even the silences. The best part of the story is in the read more last 15 minutes probably, which turns the story around so beautifully, without which this would be just another sad love story.
And of course, there is Lee Dong Wook- who we know is good, and yet, he amazes! He takes the gangster role to another level.

Both are romantic and bittersweet. The way some elements of the story come to light are similar.

      Drama.net has it. Searched forever just to find this drama. Viki also has it, but doesn't work in all regions. In case you're still searching for a way to watch it.

    A tragic love story that has been beautiful told. Excellent drama. The use of Michael Bolton's song A love so beautiful kept me crying. Nice job. Warning.... have a box of tissue. I had to use my shirt because I was not expecting to cry to much.

    For being only two episodes, it sure did pack an emotional punch.

    The synopsis - "....who OF COURSE is sick" hahahaha. Whoever wrote the synopsis has probably watched a lot of cancer/tumor/amnesia/brain-hemorrhage dramas XD
