This is not your typical family drama in which everybody hooks up with everybody in the end or finds happiness elsewhere. Its premise sets from the love games and pain that we cause to each other and what lies and masks can do in relationships.
It's more of a lesson to us that trust and love must both be present in a relationship and if you build it with lies they will all crumble in the end. I can't say I disliked the ending, it was all to real and all to familiar to things I know, have seen and have felt in my own life.
Therefore, it's not sad, it's just real, and in that lies its beauty.

This drama is engaging because it reflects time honored social mores of a 2004 society that leave the viewer questioning the value of these traditions in a modern society. Especially a society that treasures immigration and education of its children in the U.S.---the liberal land of free expression of thought, word and deeds. This contradiction is befuddling but the contrasts are what hooks you to the drama. The role of parents in a child's life (a child over 25), the disclosure of -"too much information" but failure to disclose the most important information, the need to lie, lie and more stupid lies with the same outcomes. The most entertaining part of watching this drama was comparing it to several current dramas (2014-2015) and realizing - not much has changed -- except the year. The performances of the actors/actresses - (all well known) are outstanding and the writers do a good job keeping to the theme of the drama.

If you are a k drama addict and have almost exhausted your list of top dramas -- add this one to the list. Long but worth the time spent.
