Cast & Credits
Anyways, coming to my opinion on this drama, I loved it (I guess that's pretty obvious from my ratings. lol). This drama didn't drag for me at all. I didn't skip anything. The relationships were so beautiful. The father-daughter relationship full of emotions that every daughter can relate to. I mean, let's face it, at some point we've all fought with our dads. But we still love them unconditionally. That's how kids are programmed into this world (wait, did I just quote Anastasia Grey? I think I did). Obviously, things between Seoyoung and her dad are at another level. But she still loves him and their reconciliation is beautiful. There are other amazing relationships that took my breath away. The brother-sister, the husband-wife. I loved Seoyoung's mother-in-law and OMG HER BRO-IN-LAW IS SOO HOT!! I really like him (not just because he's hot though, lol).
I can't believe Seoyoung felt so lonely when all these people were in her life, loving her and encouraging her in their own ways. Her husband is just..PERFECT. I think I'm going to rewatch this whole drama in a couple of decades. In fact, I think I'm going to buy this on DVD. All the high tv ratings for this drama aren't for nothing. This drama fully deserved them. One of my favorites.
Now I found the reason why this drama conquered very high rating in Korea, even there’s no big star in it yet can hits the weekly rating. 50 episodes I bet it’s worth watching it till the end. I never found any dull moments from the start until the end. The screenwriter knows how to produce a good drama. When times goes around here and there, everyone has their character and the reason to be there. In the end we couldn’t find anyone to blame because they’re fated to be there and everything happen for reasons.
If we try to understand it, not try to pulling it too much and never try to pushing it too far, we are actually been here because we are destined to be this way. Massive conflicts in this drama teach us that we are today as we are and no one to blame and no need to regret it. Just accept it with open of heart and moving forward.
Ujae’s determination finally changed, he learns to be a person who can give and take it when he needs too. Seo young once fights for her pride even from her husband in the end the only thing that she wanted to and can comfort her is being truly her. My favorites characters are Ujae’s parents, even you find them harsh and self centered but actually they’re warm hearted and forgiving parents and believe in things with just simple common sense.
Seo Young’s aboujie, his kind of heart always leads to misunderstanding, and Seo Young always misjudging him. After reconcile, I bet your heart once at ease because everybody’s understand each other’s feelings.
Music the ost Melody Day – Like Back Then, there’s no word can express how I love this song. So beautiful.
This video link with English sub. Listen to this song bring me tears:(.
For the viewers below than 15’y.o, I preferred parents to guide them because this drama carrying heavy messages and deep meaning, sometimes could lead misunderstanding.
Finally, Seongjae or CNBLUE’s bassist Lee Jungshin, for his first drama ever, I rate him 9/10. He is so talented and doing very good job in acting.
I recommended this drama to ALL. I promise, it worth your precious time
