    Why would you go back to your ex when there is such a sweet handsome caring fellow right there next to you? Her ex-spouse wasn't worth it.

    This drama had the leads all messed up. Tae Gwang should have been the lead who got the girl in the end, the other guy was in love with her so called twin the whole time not her and yet he ended up with her in the end?! wth?! We all knew Tae Gwang was the one she was meant for.

    The main lead guy and the 2nd lead girl belonged together, I don't know what the writer was thinking when she paired him with that maid girl... no chemistry between them at all.

    What can I say, I loved them both equally. Both the main lead and 2nd lead. How could I hate a man that's already dead anyways? When he's so nice? They both had equal parts of my heart.

    Ok, I liked the lead guy, but the 2nd lead played by Hwanee just really made me drawn to him at some point and I started to ship him with the lead girl. My heart was once again divided in a drama. I don't know where my heart would have taken me if I were in her shoes.... Especially after he sang that song 'Tomorrow' <3

    The lead guy was NOTHING compared to our second lead, who in all honesty, was quite pitiful. I wanted him to win the girl in the end just as he had won my heart.

    Sorry to say, but I hated her ex. Such a whiner and so immature. I loved Nam Goong Min's character much more, so mature, so loveable - everything her ex wasn't.

    I couldn't even finish this b/c of my dislike for the lead guy and the main couple had zero chemistry. Wang Ji Hye looks like a brick in this drama. But I so LOVED our second lead guy, such a good pure heart and so so so handsome! Gosh, I wanted him to win!

    A steadfast unbending honest lover like him, why why why would she make such a poor choice and choose that wrong guy? just WHY?!!!!

    Dong Ha's character is just WAY more appealing and he has WAY more depth to his character, the lead is dreadfully boring! Dong Ha captured my heart in episode 1 and he will have my heart till the very end!
