Good drama, but was lacking in almost everything. I did enjoy it tho and story was good. The acting was not anything worth while but was fair enough. i enjoyed watching the main lead and her will to fight on and prosper. The directors could have done more than saved the show, they could have made it a number 1. I hope they try again for i really enjoyed the story

This is an excellent drama about the life of Kim Man Doek. She is a phenomenal and caring woman who help those in need.
The 30 episode drama series had its dull moments, but it did not spoil its essence.
I really enjoyed the storyline and the acting. A few of the characters were over the top especially the brother and sister team. Her voice was annoying, but bearable.
The music was fair. There was one song I wanted to add to my kdrama ost list on YouTube , but I couldn't find it. It was one of the best song for the drama.
This drama is not big on romance. That's a good thing. Like most Korean dramas I watched there was always two men competing for the lead actress heart. This time it was three, even though, the third one was overlook too many times. I am please to say that he will eventually be in heart because he is already apart of her soul.
