Cast & Credits
The story is slightly different than what the "description" says - he wasn't really "climbing to the top", basically he deception stemmed from anger, and as you'd find out watching the drama, he never planned to hang on to his lies forever.
Cast: Jong Soo (Shin Dong Wook) was a kindhearted, sincere and loveable guy - I loved his character and I loved every moment of him with Jeong Won (Han Ji Hye) - the girl he was in love with <3
There were other characters I didn't like in the drama - mainly because of their "clinginess" but they came through in the end and I ended up liking them, you know how that goes...
Music: was beautiful - I especially remember 2 songs in particular (I don't know what they are called, but one was sung by a female and the other one by a male with the verse that says "don't let me go" in it).
Re-watch Value: I will surely be re-watching this drama in the future.
This drama gave me the same "warm" feeling that 'Save the Last Dance for Me" did.
If you like romantic drama's with a hint of revenge and deception in it - then I'd definitely recommend you watch this drama ;)
There are the inevitable love triangles. And the story line is not exactly realistic. But the real draw of the show is the continual warm moments between the lead couple, not just an occasional glance or hug, as in so many dramas. You so want them to be together, that you keep watching on into the night. If you enjoy the romance drama, this is a good choice.
