    This drama has got a nice story, it isn't realistic at all, but it is very well executed! The story is easy to follow, and it has some plot twist. Sometimes is makes you sit on the edge of your seat because you have to know what happens. But when we come near the end, it drags along for a little to long.
    But this drama is worth your time! Because the acting is amazing! I fell in love with all the actors and how well Song Hye Kyo portrayed the blind Oh Yound. I even fell in love with the bad guys! The chemistry felt so real, they have chosen the right actors for the roles.
    Also the music, it really sets the tone and

    My my! This drama had one of the best stories ever written.on top of being great the main actress was really convincing, if I hadn't seen her in full house I would have thought she was blind, and Jo in sung played the trick star role so well! the chemistry and emotions where well portrayed. Hye kyo the actress played the innocent sister so convincingly. This is one of my best dramas so far it blew my mind!!!. I watched it over and over again. Overall, It was superb

    Beautiful and very touching drama. The acting is superb and the OSTs are great too.
    I recommend not to watch it when you feel depressive though, 'cause it could make it worse lol. But really great drama. A must-watch imo :)

    WHAT! WHEN I READ THE COMMENTS I THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA HAVE A TRAGIC ENDING BUT OH NO! that was the happiest ending anyone can ask for. I wish they put the part where she sees him but doesn't know it's him in more details.

    Anyways, I loved the drama! made me think a lot about people who are blind. I started closing my eyes when I'm eating just to see how it feels like…

    I'm not a person who likes melodramas but this is very fine. THE MAIN LEAD IS SO CUTE WHEN HE SMILES!!!!!!!

    I'm not a melodrama person, but I decided to watch it because I find the plot interesting.
    Until now I'm still a happy person functioning normally without feelings of despair :D
    at ep 5. (I feel like there's a hurricane coming lol)

    Haha I saw Oh Soo in my dream today. We were eating lunch together and I asked him to pay for my food with his card because I could pay him later. And he was wearing this long coat, as he always did in the drama..and it was just a perfect dream >///<

    finished it with so much effort<br /><br />it was good at the beginning but the last episodes were so dragging<br />especially the "surgery" thing. I was like " GET THE SURGERY ALREADY!!"<br />and the other thing I couldn't stand was Jin So Ra, she was reeeally annoying and she didn't get what she deserve after all that...!!<br /><br />And Moo Cheol was really pitiful... I feel so bad for him :'{<br /> <br />I really like Melodrama and this drama was good but not that great. <br />

      You actually think it was the worst one? In my opinion, yes, the drama wasn't very realistic (the whole sibling situation), but I feel like they presented the story in a very beautiful way. But that's my personal opinion. Why did it not appeal to you?

    • jonssister Dec 31, 2013
      The two main characters both just used people. They didn't really care about anyone. They kind of cared about each other, but I felt like even that was fake. Yes, I watched the whole thing. I have major issues with people that manipulate other people. That's just not ok ever, whether that's in a drama or real life.
