Cast & Credits
If you've got this far, you must already be prepared for a tearful experience. This drama does not disappoint. However it is not there just to make you cry, the drama also (successfully) tries to show hope within the children's hospital, and the ways in which the children are able to cope with their own diagnoses.
Another thing the drama does extremely well is the way it makes the viewer feel involved in a large amount of supporting characters. Instead of solely focusing on one particular main character, each (or each couple) of episodes turns its focus to a different child, while still conveying the main plot & keeping the other supporting characters involved. It does this very cleverly and in a way that I cared about every single one of them.
The children did an extremely good job and I felt myself believing their characters.
The one downside I have to this story is the fact it sometimes focused slightly too much on the teachers, for my liking. While I liked the teachers' plot, I would have rather it be cut down slightly, and focused on some of the children who were not given their own episode.
I would recommend for those who want a heartwarming story, as well as a good cry.
