Cast & Credits
I will admit that at times this drama is a little slow, but it is a build up to what happens next. I like the ebb and flow as the main character takes sweet revenge. I'm usually really good at figuring things out, but this had a twist that I didn't see coming. The ending is a little sad, but it is acceptable. Anyone that had been through what the main character, Yoo Shin Hyuk/Yoo Gang Hyuk/Seo Ha Eun had been through would need some time to deal with emotions. This drama is a roller coaster of emotions for the viewer so I think that everyone can sympathize with his character.
Uhm Tae Woong plays Yoo Shin Hyuk/Yoo Gang Hyuk/Seo Ha Eun to perfection. You can totally tell the difference between the twins. I'm kinda surprised people didn't figure it out right away. I love his facial expressions. He is one of those actors that tells a story with his face. If you liked him in this, then you should watch The Devil and The Equator Man. Both awesome dramas. I also loved Han Ji Min's character Seo Eun Ha. Now this is a woman that I can like. She never waivers even while believing her love is dead and being pursued by another man. She cries when it is appropriate, but not a weepy character. She is strong and does everything she can to help Ha Eun. I liked her in Padam Padam and Cain and Abel where she plays similar strong roles. I think the other actors do really great also. Kim Gyu Chul as Choi Dong Chan is really good at being bad. He is in several other dramas where he plays a total ass and he is good at it.
The music is appropriate although sometimes I did wonder why they were playing certain music in the background.
I probably won't rewatch it, because I already know how it ends, but it is rewatchable.
I really think if you love melodramas that you will like this one.
