Cast & Credits
Story: The main focus is on this family who face difficult challenges in wake of an unfortunate life altering event. The first episode was so unpredictable and the ending of it will lead you to want to watch the next episode to see what will happen next. There are multiple storylines going on because there is a large cast so you will definitely stay interested and not get bored. My only gripe is that the romance between the main couple is kind of weak and the ending for them was kind of cheesy...
Acting/Cast: The acting doesn't blow me away but somehow I found myself engrossed in all the characters. There were so many characters that at first its hard to keep up with who's who. After I got to know everyone though I found myself rooting for everyone. I even wanted our villain (very creepy/scary) to redeem himself although it never happens.
Music: OST fits the show well. The theme song is cute & very catchy.
Rewatch Value: I liked this show so i'll rewatch it but not right away.
Overall the plot was engaging but the writers lacked focus and felt a little bit all over the place so a little tightening up with the story could of made it even better. Its positives are that its very touching and you learn a lot about close family relationships.
Story: 8 - The story is about two families who fall prey to a tragedy, and have their lives intertwined while they seek justice. The story is laid out well, and you cannot help but feel the warmth of a family as well as the plight of a victim. It invokes several emotions- respect for a parent, loath for the criminal, pity for the victim. It shows how the rich can use their power both for good and bad. It shows how strangers can be more trustworthy than friends. Most importantly, it shows personal growth in times of adversity.
I just hoped there were few more episodes for character development. Though the story was wrapped up well, I still hope there were atleast 20 episodes.
Acting/Cast:9 - Moon Chae Won and Choi Jin Hyuk - They did not surprise me, as I was expecting them to deliver strong performances. Donghae and Min Hyuk were adorable as ever. Who surprised me was - Im Kang Sung- He was really cute and I liked his acting (will have to stalk him)
Music/Rewatch: 6.5 - The background music was not bad, but was not memorable. As for rewatch value, though I thorougly enjoyed it, I am not sure if I can rewatch it anytime soon.
