Where to Watch One Warm Word
Cast & Credits
Cast: my favorite character in this drama was Kim Sung Soo (Lee Sang Woo) I found him to be the most loving, compassionate, hurt person during this drama, of course he too has his flaws and has made similar mistakes - but he has learned from them and tries to be a better man - even through his struggle of whether or not he should get a divorce.
My second favorite character was: Song Mi Kyung - she was the wife to the other male lead on the drama - she struggled with being "perfect" and that of course never let her show her hurts and true self - basically she lived beating herself up inside everyday while trying to show a happy appearance - which is what she thought everyone wanted her to show. I found her character to be strong, wise but yet foolish, hurt and desiring love.
There was also Kim Sung Soo & Na Eun Jin's daughter whom I loved very much.
As for the other 2 main characters I didn't like them much as they never really felt "apologetic" for their sins they committed against their spouses - one (the woman) was way too "pity me" type and that got on my nerves a lot (but she made up for herself in the end) the other character (the guy) was way to arrogant and always thought he was right - he basically never sincerely apologized for his actions - he believed he was right and no one should judge him for it - that angered me a lot - I never really liked him at all.
Side Characters: there was Mi Kyung's brother and Na Eun Jin's sister who formed a relationship - as you can imagine there would be a struggle with their relationship - but I really loved it - they were special to me. Plus Na Eun Jin's parents relationship was really great to see.
Music: was really good - although a couple of times I thought the song was inappropriate for some scenes they added the song to - my favorite song (that I still listen to) is: I Love You by (the girl from Clazziquai)
Basically if you are interested in dramas that show things very uniquely and from all perspectives then you should watch this show - but don't be too biased when doing so - or you may hate people wrongly.
Re-watch value: for me it is a 10 - I will definitely re-watch this drama someday and even buy it if it becomes available.
This drama deals with serious issues, about real-life problems so it is definitely not for those, who watch dramas in order to escape the reality. In my opinion, the issues here were well captured and it was just if I was following someone's real life. I have to admit that I cried while watching this drama (after a loooong time), not because of the main couples but because of the side one.
As for the cast, this the first time I am watching a drama with Ji Jin Hee, even though I started to watch it because of him (I loved him on Running Man). I don't know if his acting was not good, or he was just acting stiff because his character was like that. I guess that I need to see him in more productions to determine whether his acting was good or not. Here, I was not satisfied with his acting, it was like he was a side-character rather than the main lead.
As for Lee Sang Woo, this the first time I can actually say that his acting was really good. Well done, My Beloved Turtle!!!(N.B. reference to Glorious Day)
As for the main female leads, they were well chosen for their characters, but I was just not pulled in by their acting. Both of them are not really Top actresses, in my opinion.
And because of whom, I cried? Because of two amazingly talented young actors, Han Groo and Park Seo Joon. Both of them stole every scene they were in. They were much better than their older colleagues, well except for Yun Ju Sang and Go Doo Shim - they are always amazing and their relationship here was so great!! Thanks to Han Groo and Park Seo Joon, I was able to finish this drama, both of them have a bright future ahed of them!! Fighting!!
As for music, it was not great, but not bad as well. Te instrumental songs were well placed. I loved the song "i Love You" (really catchy), but sometimes, the song was not well-placed and was repeated too often.
So overall, if you are in a mood to watch this type of drama, please, do, but if know that you are that kind of person, who just hates watching dramas about real life issues, then it is not a drama for you and please, do not say that it is boring etc. The problem with this drama is that, you definitely need to be in the right mood to watch it, then it is a great drama worth your time.
