I'm a sucker for old romantic dramas like this one <3 I was captivated from the very first episode and couldn't stop watching ;) There were so many sweet romantic moments between Jong Soo and Jeong Won, whenever I saw them together I'd get all giggly and have this huge smile on my face the whole time ;) I could say this drama made me feel good <3
The story is slightly read more different than what the "description" says - he wasn't really "climbing to the top", basically he deception stemmed from anger, and as you'd find out watching the drama, he never planned to hang on to his lies forever.
Cast: Jong Soo (Shin Dong Wook) was a kindhearted, sincere and loveable guy - I loved his character and I loved every moment of him with Jeong Won (Han Ji Hye) - the girl he was in love with <3
There were other characters I didn't like in the drama - mainly because of their "clinginess" but they came through in the end and I ended up liking them, you know how that goes...
Music: was beautiful - I especially remember 2 songs in particular (I don't know what they are called, but one was sung by a female and the other one by a male with the verse that says "don't let me go" in it).
Re-watch Value: I will surely be re-watching this drama in the future.
This drama gave me the same "warm" feeling that 'Save the Last Dance for Me" did.
If you like romantic drama's with a hint of revenge and deception in it - then I'd definitely recommend you watch this drama ;)

Don't rule out watching this drama because it's older. Some of the best romance genre are the oldies. This has the feel of the classic, Winter Sonata, with similar music and tantalizing longings. The cast carries the show with exceptional chemistry between the main leads. Really, it's difficult not to immediately be drawn to Han Ji Hye. She has no guile nor pretentiousness here.
There are the inevitable love triangles. And the read more story line is not exactly realistic. But the real draw of the show is the continual warm moments between the lead couple, not just an occasional glance or hug, as in so many dramas. You so want them to be together, that you keep watching on into the night. If you enjoy the romance drama, this is a good choice.

Both are older dramas that are worth watching if you enjoy romance. The couples have magnetic appeal that carries the shows.

similar plots of people pretending to be what theyre not. in cloud stairs the main guy pretends to be a doctor and in miss ripley the girl gets a job and visa because of a fake college degree.
