I am a fan of Makjang and revenge dramas, but this one has something lacking. I can't put my finger on it exactly. I wasn't emotionally invested in any of the characters except the little girl and Kang Il Ran and the drama wasn't about them. The main characters were just too boring. After a while I didn't care that much about anything except Kang Il Joo getting what she deserves. I can't post spoilers, but the ending left a lot to be desired. The characters were complex and there was pretty good development. The plot wasn't too convoluted considering the genre, but it felt like it went round and round over the same thing. I finished it because there is also something intriguing about it. I don't know if this review will be helpful because even I feel wishy washy about it. LOL

The acting is fine. Nothing to get excited over though. I'm learning to hate Cha Ye Ryeon as this is not the first crazy woman she has played as Il Joo. She is really good at it. :-)

The music is appropriate and doesn't suck.

I will never rewatch this.

There are some better Makjang/Revenge dramas out there, but this one is an okay watch.

I live watched this, I found it that addicting. Like most longer dramas a few episodes are dedictated to the childhood/teen arc before getting any momentum going. When the adults come in and then the initial revenge starts, the drama starts to get exciting. Then, there's a very hot kiss that starts the drama's downfall and it leaves you wondering what's going to happen to our leads. You wonder if the writers got confused or they caved into netzien complaints. They didn't go as dark as they needed to with this and it also seemed as though they gave into viewer demands because Grandaddy was too hot and it unnerved some of the viewers that the relationship didn't seem gross; and they try real hard to push it this way towards the middle end.

Good, cause for revenge. The plan is no real plan, but, its fun anyway, until she  gets the help that isn't any help at all. Rather the helper mucks it up to the point yu wonder if an actor's ego was involved.

Second lead guy and girl are crazy and self centered. Anyone in business, law and medical fields be prepared for laughs.

The PollyAnna doormat lead actually buys a backbone in a tube of lipstick.

After the drama aired, an off-screen relationship was mad public and I realized this is what screwed this project up royally. Because the timeline fits exactlly when the handfuls of suck started to be dolled out.

I wouldn't watch it again, though I admit when it aired I watched episodes multiple times. But, I would recommend as an okay 'between your other drama watch', meaning if you need something to fill time between the days yourother drama airs, watch this.

Be prepared to be mildly disappointed. And I say mild because a few episodes after the kiss you realize you're watching just to see how it ends.

I loved the instrumental OST, hated the Steel Heart song, gawd that song was so horribly out of place for me.

I rated it a 7.5 because there were episodes and parts I rewatched, though I would never watch the whole drama again. Mainly because this is a drama I didn't FF through parts, I watched every episode. So it gets a 7.5 because of the actors doing the best with what was given. And too the actors that ruined this by possibly making the writers work around your relationship, ya'll suck; congratulations on your marriage. They can tell the grandkids they ruined a drama because they didn't want to see each other kiss others.
