As a young "orphan", Lee Woo Jin / Andrew received horrible treatment while growing up under the care of his aunt (father's sister). When his uncle (mother's brother), a priest, found out what happened, he took him under his wings. Growing up in the church orphanage, Andrew longed to become a priest. Years later, Jo Eun Ha came to live in the orphanage after her mother passed away. Although at first, Eun Ha was hostile to everyone, Andrew succeeded in becoming her friend, and the two became inseparable throughout their high school years. They rented a place of their own and became roommates after moving to the city to attend university. Eun Ha hides her feelings from Andrew, knowing that his goal is to become a priest. While in college, they made friends with Jung Woo Jin, who fell in love with Eun Ha. Andrew also discovered that he had feelings for Eun Ha. To complicate things, Jung Woo Jin's stepmother was actually Andrew's birth mother, who abandoned him to remarry. Will he choose love over priesthood? (Source: DramaWiki) Edit Translation

The only reason I'm writing this is because of the non-existence of a review that can elucidate people whether this is good or bad. I don't know if I'll be helpful since I'm still confused about what I felt watching this...

Beginning with the story: it's the typical story or classic/old kdramas about two friends who knew each other a long time ago and grew up with feelings that could be love. Or, more, three friends - the love triangle that we have to deal with from the beginning 'till the end.
The whole point of this story is the fact that Andrea wants to become a priest. It's what they call as a 'forbidden love'. Will he give it up for her? Will he keep his childhood dream? That's what you are supposed to ask and look forward.

For me the story had too much cliches (not different from any other dramas from the same era), and walked around many circles. The beginning was slow, but then it got interesting.

The cast was great. I have no problems whatsoever.
Soo Ae's character could be a less arrogant, and then less confusing, but it was okay.

The OST was good, the quality wasn't bad considering the year... the only thing I disliked was the flow and some parts of the plot for this story. Especially the ending, which was confusing and a bit controversial for me. Don't take that as I'm saying it has a happy or a sad ending because it's nothing like that.

If I suggest it? I do if you have nothing to do and want to check out old kdramas.

Watchable but there were a lot to dislike

Not a love triangle but a love square with priesthood. The religious theme is quite prominent throughout the drama especially in the second half, it may not be everyone's cup of tea. Too many over-dramatic elements were intertwined that it ruined the later parts. They should've kept in focus and narrowed it down.
