I really liked this drama when I watched it. so far I've watched it twice and have bought it on dvd as well. I believe this was the first drama I saw Choi Ji Woo in - after seeing her in this drama I continued to watch other dramas with her in it.
Storyline: Follows the story of an innocent girl who was the daughter of a rich families chauffeur - the daughter of the rich family Shin Hee didn't like her b/c the man she had her eye on for a spouse Hyun Woo was interested in the chauffeur's daughter Ja Young - while she watches their relationship blossom she gets filled with jealously and schemes with another man to separate them - during this process she ends up causing an accident that she blames Ja Young for doing - Ja Young sets out to reveal the "truth" (hint name of drama) lol - and to win back the man she loves.
Music: it's been a while since I've watched this drama but I believe their is at least one song I remember and liked a lot....
Re-watch Value: is a sure thing b/c I've already re-watched it and I still have fond memories of this drama - I really enjoyed watching it.
Cast: everyone played their roles very well.

If you liked Winter Sonata (even though the stories are different) you might like this drama.

I never thought that I would love this drama this much, I thought it would be boring but not at all..
Once you got hooked you don't want to stop watching.
It is breathtaking, it is an old drama almost 17 years old as we do not have much left for 2017. But it needs to be on must watched list.

The Story was great. Although second female lead irritated me.
I actually liked the chemistry between the second leads
If I watched this drama in 2000's at a much younger age I would possibly not liked it. Now I find it brilliant.

The story is a love triangle. A classic Rich Boy Poor Girl Story, a rich boy falls in love to poor girl but there is another rich, mean, stupid, ambitious who is also in love with our rich guy. We watch the schemes she is putting on to get rid of the poor girl so she can be with the rich guy. But she's putting herself into a funny position, she is unwanted, she's still playing games, slanders the poor girl with the help of her ex bf ( who never loved her but just thought she is the daughter of a rich man. as soon as he learns she's the daughter of the driver. he dumps her)

It is also about political corruption. how dad shut his eyes to the things his daughter done just to be a politicain.

How a mother wants his son to marry a woman he does not love, as she did not come from a rich, wealthy family and her husbands family never accepted or liked her. For that reason she wanted her son to marry a wealthy girl whose family has got political ties.

This drama makes me to think how families ruin their childrens life because of their ambitions, and high expectations.

It goes on like that.. The credits gives you a lot of hints about the drama.

As always like in every K-CN-or TW drama I do not feel sorry for the 2nd leading lady..
Devil's tears, showing themselves pitty.. Oh I saw him first, he's my childhood dream, I love him so you get off, he is mine bla bla bla ..

These girls do not have a pride and their mothers who are clapping every single bad thing their daughter does.

Just because of parents ambitions they do force the leads to do what their parents want not right but it is normal in Asian Culture


Both the soundtrack and the musics used in this drama were superb..
the choice absolutely brilliant
from Rodrigo Guitar Concerto to Boyzone Words.
I'll update the musics as I remmeber
- Mariah Carey Without You
- Boyzone Words
- Rodrigo Guitar Concerto aka Rodrigo Aranjuez
- There was a jazz song which I can not really call it now.
- also a korean song called gwon-yeon-u geojismalcheoleom like a lie.
-My All Mariah Carey
-Scorpions Wind Of Change
a french song from the 60's which I can not recall atm
- Eric Carmen All by myself

This drama deserves a remake

SO I made a list of the actors & actresses to play the characters if there is ever a remake

those are my choice ofcourse.

Park bo Young as Lee Ja Young
Ha-Suk Jin a Jung Hyun Woo
Cha Ye-Ryun as Lee Shin Hee
Joo Won as Park Seung Jae
jung-man-sik as Lee Young Chul
park-mi-sun is Shin Hee's mother
Park Young Kyu Ja Young's father
Na Young Hee as Lee Ja Young's mother
lee yoon ji as Choi Eun Shil Lee Ya's best friend
im-seulong as Shil Lee Ya's brother
lee-da-hae as Shin Hee's sister
