I was liking it but it kinda lost its wholeness. 1) I still cannot pinpoint when he did fall in love with her; 2) the lead actor looks good on screen but his acting is sort of forced - like the when he smiles, it is like asking somebody to say "cheese";; 3) the director was showing that Mr. BLack's team had it all together and yet there were allot of like unnecessary mistakes they made as a team as they make the revenge; 4) the 5 years in the plot seems unrealistic, and is not cohesive to the whole story (I'm trying not to divulge the story here); 5) the revenge/twist - I've had enough of it... They could have ended this at 16 eps; 6) the evil guy was first very composed in the beginning and then at the end they made him laugh the "evil laugh" , like totally out of character; 7) this guy got out in 2 years of being in prison and they go back to the couple ( it was obvious, it was not even in the same time frame)

This is still watchable, but when it comes to crimes, laws, the story has to be really tight. The twists in the story was pretty good, but I can only take so much "twisting" before I begin to just say, just get on with it... So, yes, I do have gripes about it but I have seen worst dramas.

This review may contain spoilers
As revenge/melodramas go, Goodbye Mr. Black was ok. I gave this a higher score because of the unusual birth secret twist and because people got what they deserved. I did get irritated with the ending though. I wish I could post spoilers because I have some things to say about this drama. Anyway, the plot is pretty good, but the story seemed to go around in circles at times. There were too many needless characters. I did like how there was focus on the main characters love story as convoluted as it may have been.

I think the acting is what makes this drama worth watching. I would have given up on this drama at the start if it weren't for the good actors. I didn't feel much chemistry, but they made it work. I'm a huge Kim Kang Woo fan and it was fun to watch him play the "bad guy".

The music was good.

I will never rewatch this.

If you like revenge dramas, then this one is not a bad watch.
