HITTG is a very interesting drama. The story line isn't special, but the way the story is approached is unique. There is this underlying humor throughout that made me laugh and laugh. There are some sad moments also, but nothing overly melodramatic. It is a simple story while touching on principles of right conduct and/or ethics. For one thing, being right all the time won't always make you happy. Sometimes you end up alone and sad. Another thing is that money can't buy happiness. Also, tradition can become antiquated and it isn't always something that should continue. I don't know if it is a drama for everyone, but I enjoyed it.

I haven't seen Yoo Joon Sang an anything else that I can think of, but he is pretty spectacular as Han Jeong Ho. His expressions are excellent. I also haven't seen Yoo Jo Jeong in anything. She was ok as Choi Yeon Hee, but I really didn't feel for her character and I thought that I would eventually feel sorry for her. Lee Joon gets better with each role. I like him as boy/man Han In Sang. He portrayed his struggle really well. Where did Go Ah Sung come from? She did Seo Bom proud with strength and dignity. I enjoyed the other actors as well.

The music is pretty good. It doesn't get on my nerves, but nothing stands out.

I won't rewatch this.

I recommend this drama, but it isn't action packed or overly exciting. If you like dramas that make you think then this is for you.

Having finished this, I must say this is one of the more realistic depictions of this common drama theme/plot - the poor girl w/the rich son. The humor - dark satire - had me rolling :D The acting/ensemble cast, the writing, the look of this drama all were superb.
This is not a light, fluffy romcom, nor a makjang melodrama. It's a dark satire that pokes holes in a cliched plotline, while focusing on the toll corruption takes on families and people, from the lowliest to the upper echelon. I enjoyed watching this very much and am sorry to see it go, and wish they hadn't cut 2 episodes.
This fully deserved the Baeksang Award :D
