Cast & Credits
We have our boisterous happy-go-lucky girl Jung Won (KHJ) who, under no matter what kind of circumstance or situations arised she would always stay positive and do her best to overcome them with a smile :) If I could describe her in one word it would be "Tenacious" she works hard and loves what she does. She never gives up on people (I gave up on one of them over a hundred times) she just plows through with her beliefs and pushes forward to accomplish any goals set before her. She doesn't do it in order to "win", she does it out of love. She's very pure and has a great heart <3
Seung Jun has a hard life, he says "I'm sorry" a lot :'( He once said "Do you know the stench of money?" - he is worthy of love but it comes hard for him. He does his best to live uprightly & clean...but is that enough? I personally loved the way he would say things lol, he'd have a difficult time expressing his feelings but when he managed to say a few words, they were beautiful <3
Our antagonist was played very well by LYR, no matter how many times I'd get mad at her during the drama, I could never hate her. She's probably one of the most pitied characters on here.
There was only one character I couldn't stand on this drama and that was Dae Bum (the boarder) I wanted to smack him so many times it's hard to count. Besides not liking his character I couldn't stand the actor's looks who played him - he was so ugly to me, I wish they would have used a different actor to play his role then I might not dislike him as much as I do lol.
All the side characters were great & I never skipped anyone's scenes. The eldest sister got a tad big annoying but only a few times. The parents on both sides were great. The bonding you'd see form between both estranged children and the parents was very heartwarming (especially on Jung Won's end). "Is someone your child b/c you birthed them? or are they your child b/c you raised them?" <---this question was raised a lot during the course of this drama; It was both painful and beautiful at times to watch.
Oh, and I LOVED the uncle! played by (Park Yoo Hwan). He was daebak to me, his personality, the way he cared for people and his cuteness were just adorable^^ This family tree is quite funny :P I also loved the author that appeared during the last couple episodes - he was hilarious ^^
Music - Loved it <3 'My Heart for You' by Girls Day, 'Fireflies' by Mi, 'After the Love' by Ha Dong Qn <3 my 3 favorite OST's - they also played Nat King Cole's 'Fall In Love With Me' song a couple times :)
I'll definitely re-watch this again sometime in the future (after my annoyance of Dae Bum goes away) lol
On a side note, *I had recently watched Comrades and the cutie pie from that drama just happens to appear in this drama...only as a total loser/jerk (I'm glad I watched him in Comrades first b/f I saw him on here - it would have ruined him as an actor to me - luckily I saw him in a good role first)*
