I think that not writing a review for this splendid drama would be a shame, so I'll gladly volunteer and write one.

Once again I've confirmed my true love for sagueks. I was blown away by the brilliance of this drama right from the first episode. The way it is told, directed and acted is what makes this drama special for me. I've seen a lot sagueks, but this one is one read more of the rarest and I guarantee it'll stay in my heart... forever.
Story is quite unusual. In Yub, young noblewoman, precious and only child in househould falls in a status of a low-maid when her father gets accused of a treason. She then, must learn to adapt to a poor and cruel life of maids. With a help from Moo Myung, a servant with hidden identity and other maids in a household she learns what a true happiness and love in this world means.

Personally, watching this drama gave me a lot of emotions, I was 100% invested in a story and its characters' and I really respect when a writer can brings that to viewers. I call that quality. Every character is perfectly written, with its own story and depth giving this drama a darker tone and deepness. What I love the most is that the story is told of a maids' perspective, showing us their emotions and thoughts they had, what they can do and what they can't do. Also, a great demonstrating a difference between a noblemens' and maids', in fact a difference in their actions and their punishments for that. I have to say that it's a very cruel drama, however once you start it, story will pull you in and you won't be able to stop it. At least that was a case for me.

As I said before, characters are perfectly written, from the main to the supporting ones. There wasn't a single boring moment, because every character that is shown is worth showing and she/he will always have some influence on a plot. Believe it or not, but that's how it is.
I TOTALLY became a fan of Jung Yoo Mi. That girl blowed me away! Her acting is first what makes this drama worth a try. She made her character to be so believable and true, that I don't think any other acterss would be able to bring a character of In Yub as she did. BRAVO! Her struggle when she falls from the priveleged status to the one of the lowest in that period, her emotions, thoughts, actions is so very-well written. You could actually feel for her. Definitely going into my list of the strongest female characters. ;)
I adore Oh Ji Ho and they totally chose a right actor for a role of Moo Myung. Wooden, emotionless, cruel... ufff just right. Moo Myung is a servant with a hidden identity, clever, calculative and skilled man, a man that you don't know what he thinks. He's loyal to his masters, but when In Yub enters in his life, his world will change.
Actually, no matter how I love OJH, this time my attention stole Kim Dong Wook. Damn, that man sure deserve some prize. His wonderful performance to the sweet, kind-hearted to the evil man was absolutely AMAZING. However, I COULDN'T get angry no matter what he did. BECAUSE, all he has done and all he did was for a In Yub's sake. His endless love for her, really never ended. He is a true proof to that. And that's why his character is sooo special to me, really, really special.
Also, that girl Sa Wol is the most positive and kind-hearted character I've ever met in dramaland. Believe it or not, I cried for her at least three times. Likewise, all maids and servants in this drama are not just to be written, they did have a good reason to be made in this drama.

It's the first time I hear that in a drama, especially in saguek they didn't use any single ost. It's not that I'm complaining though. Even instrumentals were very beautiful and they exactly fitted the scenes.

If we were to look from the perspective of twists, cliffhangers and turn of events this drama gave, I would say that it's not something new, although there were REALLY some epic moments. But they way this drama is made and showed to the viewers is definitely worth giving a pure 10, for me. Cinematography, directing, clever, life lesson's dialogues and also very unique story is definitely worth to be remembered for. I'll never ever forget this outstanding drama.

I’d been watched the drama version a long time ago and just now i got to watch the movie version. And it was good!!!!
It’s like story inside a story, with a lot of character. But of course densha otoko and hermes are the main character.
The cast is just awesome; i recognize almost the entire cast. A lot of the cast for the small role is this movie now is the read more main role.
Music? I don’t have any complain.
Story? It’s a sweet cute pure romance from an otaku for a really nice woman.
Recommended movie for someone who likes romance genre.

What a really great movie!!! I think it’s a masterpiece.
It has great cast with great acting skills that will made you never skip any part, but maybe rewind it. The story made me wonder what was really happen to the lead character.
Lee Young-Ae as the lead character is such a surprised to me because she is a perfect actress to play this character. The character that is a beauty with read more an angelic face has to enter jail for something she didn’t do. So she made a plan to take revenge to a kidnapper who makes her life just like that now.
The music? Usually i don’t really realize the music in a movie, but the music in this movie is just awesome. It’s what made the movie complete.
And ofcourse i really like to rewatch it again someday because i already watch for the three times before i write this review.
Be careful not to watch it with your family!!! It has a lot of blood, some exposure and sex scene.
If you like and want to watch some bloody thirsty suspense movie this is the one you looking for.

It’s about gambling with Korean card so i don’t really understand the game they played in this movie.
The story is not as good as i think (it’s maybe i really like Tazza 2 which i watch first)
I can’t understand some part of the story and the ending too.
Overall i like this movie but with some confusing story so maybe I’ll rewatch it again someday.

I watched it because of TOP who is the lead character.
I really like the story from the beginning with some scene from Tazza 1, from TOP still a child until he becomes one of the best gamblers. And of course there’ll be romance story.
The cast is good, with a few casts from Tazza 1. I love that TOP character is not someone with cold hearted personality, he just like someone read more with free spirit, that he’ll do anything for his love.
If you want to see TOP topless you better watch it.
If you already watch Tazza 1 so you maybe want to watch it too because i think the second one is better in story.

First thing is that i really like the narrator and the child panting in this movie.
The story is really great!!! I always like the story that telling about the lead actor journey from a child until the end of story. It’s about a man who wants to protect his wife and family who’ll always support him. And with a lot of failure he simply wants to give up but he can’t. read more The cast is just perfect. I simply can’t imagine another actor or actress who’ll act better than them in this movie.
This is a family drama and a perfect movie to watch it with family.

I really have a high hope for this drama because it has one of my favorite genre “school life” and i like this drama poster. It really tells you what this drama is about.
The drama starts with a common girl who eventually has to be a school president of a prestigious school and then she got a help from a weird boy to give a “speech”.
At first i don’t really read more like the story and the cast too, but after a few episodes or more i began to like it. And i still didn’t really like the cast after a few what i thinks an awkward acting.

I really like reading novels so this drama is a must watch for me.
The story is really one of a kind, and i almost love it. The story from the writer past, about her mother and her son was really good.
The cast is good!! I like the chemistry between the writer and the ghostwriter.
At first i think the music at the beginning of the drama didn’t match well with read more the drama’s story but after a few episodes i began to like it.
And you’ll never disappoint with the ending.

First, I watched it because i was drawn by the poster of this drama, so i download it. And i don’t know how but his drama always made me want to watch the next episode after one episode.
The story is not really great but it’ll make you want to know what was really happen to this couple. And i cried for once when she told him about her past.
The cast read more is just as good as the story. The husband is really cute when with his wife. And the wife who just likes a robot had a really unique personality.
The music is good, and i really like the song that the wife always sings every episodes.

I have just finished this drama and am writing this review basking in the afterglow of a really good drama.

I liked the story it was compelling and well thought out. The dialogue particularly resonated with me. I really admired the direction and cinematography too, as it took risks at times and was little unusual for a sageuk.

It was interesting to see the story from the servants perspective, all too often read more in sageuks the servants are just minor background characters and here we see their daily struggles, desires and hopes.

The acting of the whole cast was brilliant. The only exception being Oh Ji Ho who was quite wooden and emotionless throughout, (I have seen him in other dramas and he is similar) although it suited his character somewhat in this drama so I am willing to overlook it on this occasion.

Special mention to Jung Yoo Mi who was outstanding she played the character of In Yub perfectly. She goes from being a rich, privileged young woman who has a dramatic fall from grace and becomes a servant when her father is accused of treason. She managed to imbue warmth into her character so that even when she was rich and conceited you still felt affection for her, It felt like she wasn't evil or malicious but rather ignorant and conceited. She really comes into her own when she falls on hard times and her struggle and endurance is admirable.

This was my first time seeing Kim Dong Wook act. He played Eun Ki and I am very impressed with him. His character probably went through the most upheaval next to In Yub and his nuanced performance stole the show. Part of that was the writing, he was given some wonderful poignant lines but of course a lot hinges on the delivery in which he excelled!

There aren't any songs in this drama which is unusual for a sageuk as they tend to have ballads but the music that is used throughout is beautiful and fits very well.

Overall if you like sageuks this is one of the best ones that I have seen. I cannot say anymore without spoiling :)

This was such a cute drama. I feel like that's the only word to describe this. There were many aspects of the drama I loved and some I couldn't stand but still, I already feel like rewatching it.

The plot is kind of typical, strict male lead, bubbly female lead, certain circumstances happen and they end up living together. Not going to lie, the first few episodes, though interestingly funny, nothing much read more happens. You kind of just wait for the story to move along, but after a certain episode everything just started to move along nicely.

Acting/Cast I seriously loved! I loved all the officer workers, the families, the randoms etc everyone! Everyones role was perfectly scripted and they were a big part of this whole drama. By the end of the drama I felt so attached to all the character that their happiness low-key made me a little teary eyed :'D but I especially liked Kate & Princess. It was refreshing to see friends being a strong support system (not sure how to describe this without spoilers).
Though Puff's character was a bit annoying and naive at times, I liked her character and her acting wasn't half bad, this was the only drama I've watched her in so based on Just You, i liked her. Now Aaron. Woo. That is a handsome man. I haven't really watched a drama with him in a long time. I love his acting. The process of his character changing was perfect to me. It wasn't anything too obvious or too slow. I think that's a big part as to why I liked this drama too.

Music overall was nice to listen to. The them song was cute but I think my favorite was the insert song (I'm Your Cat) I liked how the beginning was played in certain scenes. Sounds weird but I like weird things like that.

Definitely will be watching this drama again ~!

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've never watched a programme this amazing in my entire life, it really has changed my perspective on the power of people. I love Kamiki Ryunosuke and he was spectacular in this drama. This is the first time I've ever watched a drama with Hirose Suzu but I now hope to watch more dramas that she featured in as she was read more simply riveting. Both their words sent chills down my spines, they were such fantastic characters. You must watch this drama, I promise that you will never forget it.

Never be oppressed, speak your mind, words have as much or more power than actions!!!!

I love this drama!!!!!
