This is my first review (don't know how to write it actually~) so I'll just share some of my scattered thoughts.

So.. this drama started really good and the young actors did an absolutely great job. Both story and acting made me feel like I was watching Wednesday-Thursday drama. Almost perfect... but...
My opinion changed as soon as they turned to the current Jang Kook and and Joon Soo... The acting was read more terrible. Though I watched some of Nam Goong Min's dramas and he seemed like a good actor, this drama made me change my mind...

I don't want to post any spoilers so I can't write anything about the ending.. Though you should keep in mind that as soon as you finish the last episode you'll feel lost - "is this end? where is the next episode". It feels like they just cut off the drama in the middle...

It's a pity that such a potentially good story was made into this... very disappointing....

Okay so I have to say that I had great... Amazing expectations for this drama even though it was on the lengthy side with about 50 episodes that were promised and then all out of the blue it was significantly cut down to 26 episodes having everything fast forwarded and not even resolving a lot of relationship and questions.

But other than that the plot was a good ones that wasn't quite read more like many other that I have watched. The acting cast did amazing jobs portraying the character. The younger cast was amazing but I could just believe that because I did not see the adult cast act as much. The music was adequate and even enjoyable at times but I was more focused on the characters and what was going on.

Overall I would have to say that I would not rewatch this because of those last two episode in which it felt like the director(s) and writer(s) just gave up and crammed everything into this pathetic excuses for closing episodes.

The overall value was originally somewhere between a 9.5-10 but was dropped because of all the unanswered crappy-ness of the ending.

    I didn't mind the last half of this drama the adult part. It was more that it ended like it the drama had to be cut short. Nothing was really resolved. It was just to rushed. The couples where just getting together Or I just should say pairing off. On pair I didn't like was Ham Cho and that guy or Ham Cho guardian with the 19 year old. why didn't Ham Cho and her guardian just stayed together if he was going to date or like a younger girl. Ham Cho Is older than 19 because when he meet her she was at least 9 and it was 12 years later. I actually finished this drama thinking Ham Cho and the guardian would end up together.

    I sadly had a bitter taste in my mouth after the ending of this drama. The ending was completely unsatisfactory and didn't resolve anything at all. A lot was left open-ended with no actual resolutions to it. I found myself a lot of times waiting for certain moments to happen that have been built up from the first half of the drama. I liked the start, but it quickly went downhill. After coming here I kind of understood why the rush with the cut of episodes, yet still. Could've focused on a few aspects rather than trying to develop everything and not do much in the end.

    Everything was great until it got the adult part. Maybe if they look alike it would be better, but after some point you lose interest. The actors individually are great though.

    I pride myself in watching most dramas I start...This one is really testing me. I think its because the adult actors don't even seem remotely related to their young counterparts. I feel like the story isn't even believable at some point.

    Started this show in 2014 dropped a couple of eps later, go back and watched a couple more later on and this went on like this until I completed the drama yesterday, this not romance, this about two families worse than each other, We have seen how they fell in love when they were young, but when they became an adult especially the last 2 episodes were almost like ff. Nam Gung Min was not enough to save the show..

    I started this show on Netflix. At the time it was my second ever k drama so I dropped it after 2 episodes. Came back to it a few months later, more experienced in the world of dramas. Dropped it again. This went on for 5 more times. After being more determined than ever, I restarted the show AND GOD IT'S JUST AS AWFUL AS BEFORE. I skipped through most of it, saw the stupid ending and was like "Well, at least I can mark it as completed". This show is a waste of time. The only good thing about it is Lee Won Geun, end of.

    Can anyone tell me the name of the Filipino actor Cheon Ho-Jin looks like? I remember there's one that plays a Flipino president in some movies but the name escapes me.

    I know there was a cut on the episodes and you guys think it had an incomplete ending, but I think it did have an ending, the directors worked it out quite alright, the ending is they will continue to date and look forward to their future without letting their mothers stand in their way( not quite the best decision) but its a happy ending too if you really think about it, this drama was really good, I don't know why it has such low rating, its heart warming, a little dramatic but it has comedy too, and the characters had chemistry, both young and old.

    I recommend anyone who sees this comment to watch this drama and forget about the low rating, this other people just don't know how to watch a drama and think about it carefully, they have an ending to a story before they even start and when its not what they expect they degrade it. Trust me and watch this drama then rate it yourself, DON'T BE LIKE THIS OTHER PEOPLE :) :) :) :) :)

    What a sweet drama. The first half was pretty good I liked the ending too it's a little more realistic, not everything has to always be tied up in a shiny neat bow and sprinkles on top.

    I loved the younger characters they are so cute and I can feel the love in their acting unlike the adults. from the beginning there was too much of the supporting characters lives but in the end their was nothing much about them. don't get us involved if you don't want to show us their ending.
