I mention the length because everything has to happen somewhat quickly, but I think Ha Jin and Kang Seok's relationship came together comfortably and believable. However, after a certain revelation things turn ugly. It was poignant and sadly disappointing when Ha Jin rejects Kang Seok. It breaks your heart that she seems to be completely heartless and materialistic no matter what the justification. Then when Kang Seok nearly follows suit in wishing his own sick mother would either get well or die so he can get on with his life really shocks you...but...if we are to be honest with ourselves we likely have been nearly as selfish at some point.
However, in the end both come to their senses, unfortunately for Ha Jin it's too late. Yet, Kang Seok's kindness will forever be Ha Jin'S as he will forever watch over her from a far. A bittersweet end.

I was kind of disappointed with the ending though...I didn't mind the tragic ending, it's just that it was so abrupt and kinda confusing.
The acting could have been better. The main leads were lifeless at times. Especially the female lead. I think they could have done a much better job. Still it wasn't too bad. :)
I hated the music though. The at-times-lifeless acting made the drama special a bit boring but the music made it much worse. >.< The music is one reason why my rating dropped below 8.
