I loved this drama. Admittedly in the beginning like all longer shows I wasn't sure about the plot or the acting. I had some doubts about the main couples chemistry and up until the middle I was secretly (or not so secretly) cheering for the second male lead.

Even though there were definitely a lot of things I might have done differently - I like that for the most part things weren't over the top and although there were some pretty unlike-able characters, there really was only one bad apple.

Happily ever after? Sure. But not until the end a lot of struggles and trials. I liked the realistic ending of complicated forgiveness.

I'm trying to keep this review vague so as not to spoil anything. I know a lot of people are probably struggling with why the main antagonist didn't have a harsher end. She was definitely a loathsome character who was caught up in greed due to a painful past. And although I don't fully understand why she did what she did - I do relate to the fact that after she saw her son crumbling emotionally, she was filled with remorse.

So Yoo and Seo Yoon ended up being one of my favorite main lead couple in a drama.

Rewatch value - I don't know. I say no now, only because of the length- but who knows come winter when a good drama is what you need.

At least the drama had Mi Ri

The first problem became apparent very quickly. Both male leads can't act to save their lives. Seo Do Young was stiff as a brick, the dude barely react or be able to open his mouth more than 0.5 cm. In contrast, Im Yoon Ho was overacting as much as he could while putting silly expressions. I don't want to see him in any other project in the future, the dude is really off putting. The silliness will lure you in but soon enough it will turn into another bloated melodrama minus the silliness. The "illness" plot was too dump, is that the best they could come up with? This made the whole last 30 episodes unbearable.
