Cast & Credits
I enjoyed hating parts of this drama more than I enjoyed loving them. How ironic, I know! It had me pulling out my hair, screaming and cursing with frustration. I almost wanted to give up watching, and for some reason I couldn't. I was addicted badly to it. The characters were all crazy and nobody is normal in this drama. All their lives suck and every character suffers from deep guilt, abandonment issues, mommy issues, daddy issues and what-not. Plus, it being a melodrama had the tragic makjang also. All this craziness is what makes this drama complete. Perhaps all this seems a bit too much for me since I am not a melodrama loving person. For those who do watch melodramas, I can guess it won't be a big deal at all.
The acting done in this drama is way above than normal ones. The main leads are perfect at playing their roles. This drama does have a lot of crying in it, but some scenes have been done beautifully. Especially Ko Hyun Jung- who I've seen for the first time here was outstanding. She really knows how to pull off emotional scenes with perfection. In fact, I've not been so impressed with an actress in a Korean drama before. Jo In Sung went way overboard at times when he was crying or yelling, but at least his emotions came through to me as a viewer. Plus he's so good to look at. :D I liked the other actors too especially Han Go Eun who always plays her characters well.
As for the overall story- I thought it was good. It does have flaws and boring parts in it but it manages to be decent enough. I suppose I loved the characters most. This one is an entirely character-driven drama. I loved the fact that the characters were messed up and there was no good guy here. All characters were flawed- especially Jung Eun and Eun Sub.
Jung Eun is at first a female who has been closed off and living in a shell for years due to her sad past. Then she meets Eun Ho who helps her open up and they fall in love. She also meets his younger brother- the hot, self-centered and childish Eun Sub who also falls for her. Then you have a complicated story with brothers in love with the same woman. The only question here is who she will go to in the end.
I thought Eun Ho was perfect in the beginning but later on he sort of became redundant to me. I couldn't root for him as much as I did for Eun Sub. I didn't even love Eun Sub entirely. He was too flawed. But I have to say that Jo In Sung suited the role. Eun Sub makes for an interesting literary character who has an unhealthy, all-consuming love for the woman. Not just that, he needy and desperate for love and he shows it time and again. He was unlike other Kdrama guys that I have seen till now who usually remain closed off. Here you have a guy who shows that it isn't easy to close off once you have opened up. Apart from these characters I LOATHED their mother. She drove me crazy. She was beyond INSANE, I tell you! I didn't get why she kept beating up whichever female got close to her son. Crazy, crazy woman!
I think every person would want to root for the brother that I rooted for. He's the one who suffers like hell and also gets his deserved happy ending. In fact the ending is happy for almost every one. Sort of. That is why this is one of the best melodramas according to me. :)
This drama has an outstanding background score. I also loved the main song which they kept playing in every episode. It was simply perfect.
Since it was so tiring to watch, I will never rewatch it. Ever.

Story: The synopsis says it all, meaning not much else is going on other than the back and forth of who the main female character will end up with. It really does get repetitive with all the angst and it would have been awesome if they ended it at ep 16. Its focus also lies in the repairing of the relationships in the main family (their a dysfunctional bunch). Although the ending was short I was happy with the outcome of the romantic pairings.
Acting/Cast: Im going to start off with Jo In Sung, because hes an actor Im least familiar with. From the first episode, I was impressed with his acting abilities. His character felt real all throughout and he had the most crying scenes and they were just so belivable that he almost made me cry! Our other male lead is the great Ji Jin Hee, someone who I have seen in other dramas and ive come to appreciate. As for the leading lady, Ive seen Whats UP Fox so I know that shes a vet and wasn’t surprised by her amazing acting skills. I did wanted to mention that two leading actresses are in here and although their characters had small parts compared to the other big names, their characters stood out and that’s because of the acting talents by Han Go Eun and Lee So Yeon. Oh yeah and the actress that plays the crazy mom is the same one from Stairway to Heaven so you can expect the same insane performance.
Music: They played the 2 same angsty songs over and over again.
Rewatch: Good pacing and great chemistry makes this something I would consider watching again in the distant future.
Overall Spring Days is a must watch for the best male lead character Ive seen in a Korean drama ever.
