Song Joong Ki - the man you just can't resist. His flower boy image won many hearts and his bad boy role stole many others. So here's a peek into why he should be stalked!!
This drama, I have no idea why I took the liberty of putting it in my list of “To Watch” dramas for the year of 2009-2010. This is one of the most melodramatic drama’s I’ve seen for that year.

It have made me cry a bucket but it was all worth it. Having seen the show made my sense of Kdrama more diverse, since I tend to choose rom-com to genres like this. My heart is just weak like that, but this show made my threshold on tears much stronger… or so I thought until I saw Cinderella’s sister and 49 days. Heh.
This drama would always be dear in my heart because of the story line. It may sound unbelievable or ridiculous or even annoying
for some because everything was such a mess. The main character’s past was so jumbled up that the future became dim for them. You would tend to watch and wait and watch some more, thinking, when would it ever stop?
Until one day, things would just fall into their proper places.
The ending wasn’t that satisfying for me but the whole journey of the drama was worth it. Once again, I got my mother crying out of this drama and she had to point her fingers at me "again" for doing so. I so love my mom when she does that but still continue on watching anyway.
Acting wise was superb, so maybe that’s what got me hooked after seeing the first episode.

I do not usually watch melodramas. This drama, however, is an exception. For some unknown reason, it has become one of my favourite re-watch drama (especially during long winter nights with a glass of red, a warm blanket and a working heater/fireplace). If I do not watch re-runs of the black and white movies from the bygone era on those nights, this drama is a prime candidate for entertainment then (short of reading Wuthering Heights for the umpteenth time, that is!). Perhaps, I imagine Goo Soo's character here as my very own Mr. Darcy?

Story: This is a story that follows a pair of lovers since childhood, their personal struggles and the dilemma of those around them. True to the spirit of melodrama, you should expect
bucket loads of tears for this one. Should I even bother to elaborate? Nope. Watch it and find out yourself. It can be rather draggy in the middle (and normally this is the part where I doze off on the coach!) but it picks up in the last 2 episodes towards an acceptable ending. Suffice to say, there is nothing exceptional about the storyline. If I must put my money into it, I'll bet on the cast.
Acting/Cast: This is one good example of how you do not need to have superstars to make a good drama. The stars just aligned for this one where the cast is concerned. Great acting from everyone. Great chemisty between the leads, and if I am honest with myself, I'll admit that it is the good acting that make me want to re-watch this drama again and again.
Music: Mediocre to say the least. Good sleep therapy material.
Rewatch value: A keeper for those long, cold winter nights.
Overall: Watch it if you have the patience and stamina for a good melodrama. Otherwise, skip it and go for comedy.

They have some common points (i.e. love triangles or one character come from a poor family) and their genre is the same ("Will it Snow at Christmas?" is especially melodramatic)
both dramas are heart braking and make you wanna cry.
