    sarò molto diretta di questo drama anche perché ho imiegato 4 giorni per vederlo, di solito non arrivo mai a così tanti giorni ^.^, cmq stavo per citarvi alcune descrizioni del drama, ovvero il mio commento, nei primi episodi racconta la storia del protagonista di come tutto iniziò, quindi in questo momento vedremo il giovane Park ji-bin, che lo abbiamo visto già in molti drama ma che svolgeva la parte del fratelli minore “di solito della protagonista” ma che qui, invece svolge il ruolo del protagonista, da adolescente; devo dire che il nostro giovanotto nella recitazione di questo drama si è completamente superato, forse perché nei panni del protagonista si è gasato un po’ cmq bravo, bravo, complimenti Park ji-bin (della serie “piccoli attori crescono”)

    Lately,I found it hard to finish the drama from the start till the end without a pause or watching another drama in the middle at the same time. But this drama really sucked me in from the first episode till the end.

    I loved & enjoyed History of Salaryman and the fact that the same writers did The Incarnation of Money,it made me want to watch it. Thanks to many good reviews,this drama completely captured me. Talk about how the story is executed,mostly it has revenge element embedded, tragic life story of the main lead is a must.(If you're a fan of melo,revenge,heartbreaking drama you should watch this) From the start, You WILL ALWAYS find yourself take a pity on our lead guy here which is

  • Both dramas are from the same writer and both have many actors in common. Some themes are featured in the two dramas, like wars for power and money, revenge and betrayal. The writing style is similar, except Giant doesn't have the humor/comedy situations factor.

  • Same creators. Bot have totally awesome characters and story. Both have a lot of comedy, but on the other hand there are some really serious moments too. It takes some time for story to develop, but when it does, everything falls into the right place. Both are one of the bests dramas you can ever see (which is definately not an overstatement!)

    I was disappointed at first, but started to enjoy it once I ignored the fact that it had the same creators of HSM and Giant.
    Great drama but not as quirky as HSM.

    Firstly, I am really into this drama rigth now, it has great actors (especially Kang Ji Hwan) and good storry and it's really interesting.
    But! there had to be one thing that made me very mad. It was "the change" of Bok Jae Ni. Really, couldn't writers thought any better idea than whole body surgery? How about doing sports and eating less sweets and more vegetables? I mean, those kind of scenes are very inapropriate, it makes people think, that surgery is a very easy and good thing (though expensive)...
    In the end I remembered that this is Korea, so, they really might think that way, 'cause surgery is popular there...

    This is a great drama and I could see the writers were the same as the ones of Salaryman. The first three or four episodes could be a little offputting as they are a mixture of dramatic/over the top comedy parts, however after that the story and the plot get really good and very involving. I found it very clever and very, very well acted. Kang Ji Wan is really good here and so is Park Sang Min who plays the very convincing role of the villain. I highly recommend this and I rated it 9.
